Meet The Team
My career in the property industry runs parallel with Tim’s, we started out in the same corporate agency about two weeks apart! My experiences very much echo Tim’s as a result and 25 years has seen us forge not just a great friendship, but a strong and successful business partnership. Haughton Warburton Residential is a natural extension of that relationship and the ideals we as a team embody. I think we bring a different perspective to the current agency offering, one built on professionalism, personal interaction and customer service and it’s one I feel very proud of.
Outside of work, I compete in marathons, triathlons and iron man competitions which takes me all over Europe and maybe one day even further afield. It’s a great opportunity to keep in shape and raise money for good causes. My pet hate is not beating my previous best time in a competition.
Grant Gurnsey – Sales Director
“I started my career in residential estate agency some 25 years ago with one of the larger corporate agencies. They had a huge focus on training and an ideology that everybody should learn every different aspect of the business from the bottom to the top and drummed into you that this knowledge allowed you to offer your clients the best possible service. Fast forward to now and I’m still learning and I still believe very strongly in that ideology. As a result, breadth of knowledge and customer service are key to what we do here at Haughton Warburton. The wonderful thing about working in this industry is that every day is different, because every property and every client are unique. I love that, we welcome that uniqueness, the one size fits all approach of some is simply not for us.
Outside of work, property still plays a part as I work on personal projects, but in the main, is all about time with my wife and children. Pet hates – poor service.
Tim Haughton – Director
“I have worked within property and always had a very keen interest in the industry all my working life. Our business has continued to grow and develop, and I have witnessed many stages of not just progression, but also the darker times when the industry has sometimes been at its worst during the banking crisis of 2008/09. To this day I still get an air of excitement when either we take a new instruction, or a sale. So it was a natural progression, because of our commercial success, that we venture into the residential market. We are honest and reliable, and we serve our customers well. I love seeing my colleagues progress both personal and professionally, and HW Residential will also prosper under the same formidable team.
Outside of work my hobbies include sailing with my family, golf and travel. Pet hates – negativity and losing golf balls!”
Nick Haughton – Director
Nick and I both met working in a Chartered Surveying company over 30 years ago, and opened our joint business a few years after. We have never looked back, and I spend more time with him than I do my own wife, so we must be doing something right! I enjoy the satisfaction of assisting hundreds of contented clients achieving their goal by purchasing their dream home – or even as an investment. We are very very excited about the residential challenge, we have done a lot of work to ensure we are ready, and now we are.
I have a general interest in the property market but outside of work, other than my wife and children, my passion is Leeds United (for my sins) – if you ever fancy joining me you will find me at all the games! Pet hates- Leeds losing…
Mark Warburton – Director
“Having worked with a number of CEO’s, Executive Directors throughout my career, I joined Haughton Warburton in 2007. I have watched the company propagate, develop and grow into twice its size, and I am very excited about this next phase. The Directors look after all their staff, they engage, ask questions and are generous with their time ensuring harmony throughout the team, even pay for the Christmas party! Judging by what is proving to be a very exciting future for HW Residential – I wouldn’t want to work anywhere else!”
Helen Fearon – Company Secretary
“I have previous experience in the customer service industry and became an employee of HW Residential after renting a property from the company over a year ago. My goal is to continue driving the business forward and when I’m not selling or letting properties I enjoy going to the gym and spending time out and about in Manchester city centre.”
Jacqueline Kent – Sales & Letting Coordinator
I have worked for the company a little under a year and am really excited to join the Residential property market. I am keen to help all customers to get exactly what they are looking for and I look forward to welcoming you to our company, so please call in for a cup of tea anytime.
Chris Osborne – Sales and Letting Coordinator
I have worked for Mark and Nick for many years. To this day I still enjoy getting out of bed in a morning and coming into the office. Each day is definitely different, we are not just your average ‘property agents’ we pride ourselves on giving so much more to our client. We are constantly recommended by existing clients, which speaks volumes. Welcome to our residential company. Come on in…….and enjoy the ride…..
