Its congratulations to Robert Ford, Sales Manager in Stevenage, who recently celebrated 15 years with Your Move. Here he tells us what brought him to the business and what it is like working for the UK’s largest single estate agency brand (*).
“I first chose to come to Your Move as my oldest daughter had started school and, at my last job, I had to work Saturday and Sunday. Coming to Your Move meant I could work a 5 day working week, with no Sundays, so I could have a happy balance between home and work which I think is important to ensure I do my job well.
My role has not changed much over the years - although the market has - but with a great team in place we’ve managed to adapt and have continued to offer, what we believe is, a great customer experience.
During my time with Your Move, I have always enjoyed really stable relationships with my team members and have a good team currently working with me; Tina, who has worked for me for just under 13 Years and Linda who has worked with me for 3 years. Working just 9 miles from home also has the added advantage that I feel really established in the town, which I like, but which many customers also appreciate because of the knowledge I have of the local market.
In terms of the future, I’d be more than happy to carry on doing what I do. Your Move is a big company that I feel secure in and, ultimately, I'd like to continue working here and helping our local customers.”
Chris Byrne, Robert’s Area Director added: “Well done on reaching such a great milestone Robert – you are a real credit to the team.”
