Expanding Frontiers – Meet Jennifer, Tom, Louisa and Joe
November 23, 2012Article by Ray Withers
Well with only a month to go until Christmas, 2012 is coming quickly to a close but things aren’t slowing down here at Property Frontiers.
Interest in our latest student accommodation investment project, Central House in Glasgow is sky high with our Investment Consultants working flat out to reserve clients the units of their choice. So successful has this exciting new opportunity been in fact that over 50% of the spacious studios are already sold out within a fortnight of launching!
And with a number of innovative new global investment opportunities being brought to market before the chimes of Big Ben welcome in 2013, the Property Frontiers team has once again expanded to ensure we continue to deliver our award-winning first class customer service.
We welcome two new team members to the London office with Jennifer Nickel and Thomas Harg joining as Investment Consultants.
Jennifer’s interest in property and investments began long ago in her native Canada, before she ever moved to the UK. Her grandmother was one of the first ever female realtors in Winnipeg and growing up, her father was the president of a company that taught the individual how to invest wisely. Jennifer officially began her career in property with a Covent Garden based lettings agency where she enjoyed showing beautiful properties to potential tenants but missed the relationship building aspect of her career. After some reflection she began her first role as an investment consultant with a green investment company. This position led her to her current role at Property Frontiers, where Jennifer feels she’s finally found her perfect medium between investments and property! Jennifer enjoys travel, good food and a nice, full-bodied red wine. She spends her spare time reading, jogging and Google-ing pictures of tropical beaches. She is also undertaking an interior decorating course in her spare time.
Also a key member of the busy London office is our token Aussie, Thomas Harg.
Tom first visited London in 2007 and from that moment he knew once he graduated from the University of Queensland he would move to the UK to live and work.
After spending the majority of 2011 traveling around North America and Europe he settled down in Fulham (with the rest of the Australians) to take advantage of the opportunities on offer in the banking capital and worked with Lloyds bank for the first year.
It was during this time that he realised he wanted to move into property and build on some of the areas he studied in while majoring in natural resources and the environment with his economics degree. While studying Thomas worked in property services part time for around 2 years in total. He says, “I love talking to and helping people so naturally assisting people with investing was a great choice.”
Outside of work Thomas enjoy traveling and most sports, especially Australia beating England in the rugby! He likes to think that he’s a bit of a master in the kitchen, others aren’t so sure…
And last but by no means least, we welcome Louisa Ogborne and Joe Quigg to our headquarters in Oxford.
Ably assisting the Investment Consultants, Louisa has probably got one of the most interesting qualifications having graduated from Lancaster University with a 2.1 in Criminology! Utilizing her analytical mind, Louisa is on hand to help with any queries and supports the Investment Consultants in finding just the right opportunities for their clients.
A real team player, Louisa was a tour guide, a member of the netball team and helped with charity work whilst at university. Out of work, she loves running, photography, socialising with friends and cooking.
Working alongside Louisa in assisting the sales team is Joe. A recent graduate from Manchester University with a 2.1 in Business Management & Marketing, Joe joined Property Frontiers to get some hands on experience in the workplace. A self-professed sports addict, Joe spent his gap years teaching skiing in Canada, Whistler and Mt Tremblant but he also enjoys playing golf, cricket, hockey and football in his spare time. His passion may be sport but Joe is no meathead, he also enjoys reading about history and politics in his spare time.
