Duncan has recently celebrated 31 years in estate agency but is still first to admit there is still so much more to learn. Like many, estate agency wasn't a deliberate career move it just so happened that after a premature end to his business studies degree course he was offered the job of junior negotiator in Farnham. Selling a house in his first week he was hooked on the satisfaction that can be gained by helping people with such a significant milestone in their life.
Although progressing up the corporate ladder Duncan was frustrated and believed that a far better job could be done for clients, but not in that environment. The idea of Castles was formed in the late 80's and realised in 1992 with the opening of an office in Aldershot. Bringing new levels of client care Castles quickly became a name synonymous with effective, quality customer service. Duncan opened Farnham in 1997. Lettings was added in 2010.
After 10 years in the industry he achieved a Fellowship of The National Association of Estate Agents. Duncan was one of the first people in the country to qualify as a Home inspector. Duncan is well known in the industry and is a panel expert in an estate agency publication.
Born in Liverpool Duncan is a lifelong 'Red' although he lost his accent when he moved to the Isle of Wight as a boy. He joined his family when they moved to Farnham in the early 80's and has remained in the area ever since. Duncan lives in Medstead with Penny, his wife, Thomas 20, Elliot 17 and the cat Milly. In what little spare time he has Duncan enjoys his KTM motorbike, cycling, squash, and can turn his hand creatively in the kitchen.
Duncan is based in Castles Aldershot Office overseeing the day to day running of the office.
