Karen Blanchard

Position: Client Onboarding Team

I accidentally stumbled into estate agency 20 years ago, after having children. I was looking for office work that I could do to fit in around my husband’s job and came across a Weekend Receptionist role at a large independent estate agents in Wakefield. I didn’t know much about the sector then, but I do now.

By nature, I am a good facilitator so being a Sales Progressor is the ideal job for me. Whatever someone’s reason for moving, it is great to know I can help in some way and I still get a buzz when a sale completes.

After a busy day, I like to relax with yoga and meditation. I’m always trying to learn and improve myself and I’m teaching myself Greek, which isn’t easy but it’s a work in progress.
