Expanding Frontiers – Expert new Investment Guides Zara and Helen join the team

June 18, 2012Article by Ray Withers

With enquiry levels and business activity returning to pre-recession times, as seen in the hey-day of 2007, it is essential that we at Property Frontiers maintain the highest standards of client services and so, with that in mind, we welcome two new expert Investment Guides – Zara Crockett and Helen Reeves.

Zara joins our Central London office bringing a PhD in Latin Palaeography, Masters in Business French from La Sorbonne in Paris and 1st Class Honours degree in Classics from UCL. Originally from Henley on Thames, Zara is now based in north London and is returning to her ingrained family interest in both residential and commercial property in the UK and abroad.

With a mixed heritage and global outlook, Zara has worked overseas in a variety of exciting destinations including as a translator for Papal documents alongside the Pope’s Latinist at the Vatican in Rome, an Editor and journalist in New York and a sales agent in Paris for luxury goods brand Christian Dior.
In her spare time, Zara enjoys writing, traveling, food, wine, dogs, spending time with her family, keeping up to speed with her fluent Italian and French, singing and dancing – skills which saw her through to many stages of the Pop Idol contest.

Working alongside Zara, fellow Henley on Thames resident Helen Reeves joins us from a leading estate agency in the town where she was the Lettings Manager for 3 years. A true property professional, prior to this role Helen worked at an estate agency in Reading as a consultant and has 3 years experiences as a Mortgage Consultant. She also proudly holds her CeMAP (Mortgage), ACCA and ARLA (lettings) qualifications.

Passionate about customer services, Helen believes that good customer service and advising clients correctly is core to her and her client’s success.

Outside of work, Helen loves travelling and used to be a long haul air stewardess; she is also really interested in any kind of history, running, cycling and yoga.
