A profile on Zac Ship, our Area Sales Manager for the Tunbridge Wells region

Another in the series of intros about our key members of staff, this piece is all about Zac Ship, our Area Sales Manager for the Tunbridge Wells region.

Born at Pembury hospital, Zac is a real local, who grew up in Edenbridge and went to Hever Primary School, then The Skinner School. He loves sport and when a little older he coached for Arsenal, before going on to be a Leisure Centre Manager. He eventually got itchy feet and spent six months travelling in Thailand and New Zealand which helped him focus on what he wanted to do with his life. On his return he joined a high street Estate Agent and spent time working with Mathew Gurr who would go on to found our Move Revolution Haywards Heath region. Zac has always been ambitious and wanted to become a Branch Manager from early on. When Mathew joined Move Revolution he knew Zac would be a great fit and we were absolutely delighted to welcome him on board. After a stint within the Redhill and Reigate region Zac went on to found the Tunbridge Wells region where is now doing fantastic job bringing the Move Revolution excellent customer service and knowledge to the area as we knew he would!

He is recently married and the photos were taken by one of our in house photographers (look at the little sneak peek below!) so they’re absolutely stunning! The wedding was at The Plough Barn in Leigh which was his top tip in one of our recent blogs as a pub to go to for the outside space along with the delicious food.

 

Zac has a young daughter and they love to go on family days out on the Spa Valley railway, and out for lunch. One of their favourite family lunch places is The King Henry VIII pub in Hever, after a morning exploring the castle.

He enjoys going to the cinema which he tends to do once every month or so and he considers himself a bit of a movie buff. He loves going out with his wife and friends up in London a couple of times a year, going to the theatre and to rooftop bars.

Zac’s favourite architectural style is very much modern and he loves light, airy spaces. This beautiful home is his all time favourite. Photos taken by our in house photography team and we’re very proud of these!

A motivated Estate Agent, Zac is great at what he does, and if you live in the Tunbridge Wells region and looking to buy or sell a property, he and his colleague Ben are the people to talk to. You can reach them on 01892 300600.

Some of our favourite beaches

Oh we do love to be beside the seaside….! And not just our Brighton team either, it seems most of us are massive British beach fans, and have quite a selection of favourites to share. This is the latest in our blogs to share with you over the summer season:

Sarah Cohen, Sales Progression

We love going to Shoreham where my parents have a beach hut. We love nothing more but to go and eat our fish & chips at the hut and play on the beach. Many a happy day has been spent there!

Louise Simpson, Area Sales Manager, Redhill & Reigate

West Wittering for me! My favourite as it’s perfect for a barbecue while spending a full day at the beach watching the sailing boats come and go.

Oisin Flynn, Photographer

I like a little stroll around Whitstable from time to time. It’s a lovely little town near Canterbury. The beaches are clean and calm and there’s a great lobster shack right on the beach that’s worth a visit if you’re down there for lunch or dinner. Whitstable also has wine, cider and beers produced there which are all very good. Always feels good to drink local when you’re visiting!

Alex Goodman, Area Sales Manager, Brighton

Obviously Brighton, how could I say anywhere else?! There is nowhere better on a sunny day then Brighton beach. With so many places to get good food and drinks and so many forms of family entertainment like the amusements on the pier and crazy golf it is the perfect place to spend the day enjoying the sun.

Mathew Gurr, Haywards Heath

It has to be in front of Hove Lawns. I spent a few happy years living in Hove so this always reminds me of my mid 20’s! Stroll into Brighton, a great spot for a run or head east towards Hove Lagoon.

Ben Hosmer, Tunbridge Wells

My favourite beach is Camber Sands and Rye Harbour both within a couple of miles of each other. Camber has sandy beaches and Rye has quirky shops, bars, restaurants, pubs and cobbled streets.

Mark Waldron, Area Sales Manager, Sevenoaks region

Goring is a great place to head to when the sun is out!

Sam Webb, Land and New Homes

A day out to the beach for me is always a toss up between Camber Sands and West Wittering. Both are a family favourite offering unspoilt sandy beach. At Camber Sands when the tide goes out the beach goes on for miles and great fun running up and down the dunes……you can be sure to have some very tired little ones!

Sarah Sproston, Marketing Manager

Another vote for West Wittering here! The children absolutely love it, the dunes and clean sandy beach are just perfect for a family day. We also love to drive upriver to Itchenor, (or cycle along the Salterns Way if feeling energetic!) and watch the sailing boats, sometimes popping in for a pint or half at The Ship Inn.

Where do you go to dip your toes in the sea? We’d love to know, so comment below!

Move Revolution Prioryfields 2017 – Day 3

 

WOW-WEE! What an incredible day.  We had sunshine, blue skies… and the odd rain cloud! Our day was brightened by 1000’s of smiles, giggles, laughs and happy faces – thank you.

Today was the Move Revolution Farm Day! A huge thank you to Reigate School of Ballet & Commercial Dance and their fantastic dance sessions. We loved seeing you sing Old MacDonald and enjoying being farmers in your Hoedown! You will have spotted members of our Move Revolution team enjoying them with all the dancing!

  

Today Squiggle, Dot and Squeeze created our Farm Craft, we think you will agree that your balloons were incredible (our personal favourite was the fabulous frog!)

 

We know that for many of you the highlight of our Farm Day was coming to the Move Revolution Mini Farm! We know it was ‘mini’ but we loved seeing all your smiles when you saw the Donkey, Pony, the cheeky goat, the quiet sheep, chickens, the gorgeous rabbit .. and not forgetting the friendly dog!

Did you enjoy the pond dipping today… many of you came back from ‘dipping’  to say you had a brilliant time, once again we send out a huge thank you to Helen West, and the Rangers from Priory Park – thank you for all your support over the past three days you have been amazing.

Our ‘Day 3’ Move Revolution enjoyed dancing, making crafts and saying hello to you.  Thank you to all of you who have recommended us to family and friends, those of you who booked a valuation at the event and all of our existing clients.

Today you met:

Thank you for making our Farm Day such great fun.  If you are thinking of moving or letting your home we would love to chat with you, just give us a call on 0800 0337670.

Lazy Sunday morning breakfast or brunch?

Another in our series of blogs, we thought this time we’d bring you our favourite spots for a weekend breakfast or brunch.

Like our fish and chip favourites, it was a heated debate as we all discussed how much we loved our local haunts!

Louise Simpson, Area Sales Manager Redhill & Reigate

If I’m in Croydon or Brighton, Breakfast Club for a bloody Mary and avo, bacon and poached egg on toast…my fav. Sometimes I get pancakes too because its ok to have pudding at breakfast – right!?

Hannah Gunn, Lettings Manager

Olivers in Copthorne. They do a lovely full English or I love their sausage baguettes which come from the local butchers.

Sarah Cohen, Sales Progression

We love Frankie & Bennies for breakfast, they have a great choice and serve breakfast until midday, very child friendly.

Sam Webb, Land & New Homes Manager

Sunday morning breakfast at Woodcote Green garden centre café can turn out to be a full morning affair! I love the eggs royale with smoked salmon, with a pot of tea. After breakfast it is round to see the fish, a visit to the play area before picking up some supplies in the amazing farm shop.

Mathew Gurr, Area Sales Manager, Haywards Heath

Sunday morning breakfast – where to go, what do you choose? We tend to either go to Cote in Haywards Heath if it is just the two of us or with the boys, we go to Bills in Brighton Their full English is excellent, but so is their porridge with nuts and mint if I need to be healthy.  

Ben Hosmer, Sales Manager, Tunbridge Wells

Another Bills fan here! Sunday morning breakfast is great at Bills in Tunbridge Wells for a great atmosphere and delicious food!

Paul Brice, Director

Rosie’s Coffee Lounge does a great breakfast but not on a Sunday, so we make sure we get down there on a Saturday instead! Plenty of space and toys for the children to play while you enjoy your breakfast. On a Sunday, Bluebells in East Grinstead. Great cooked breakfast and fresh Smoothies.

Mark Waldron, Area Sales Manager, Sevenoaks

For Sunday morning breakfast, it must be Bojangles Coffee House in Dunton Green, it’s just down the road from our Sevenoaks office and it’s a great little spot to enjoy some fantastic coffee (Perfect flat white)  and read the Sunday Paper. The Smoked Salmon Bagels are my go to choice here.

Sarah Sproston, Marketing Manager 

I love West Central in Redhill, they have a late brunch opening at 11:30 on a Sunday, and it’s a great place for friendly service and for the children as there’s a small indoor play area for little ones.

So these are ours, what are yours? Tell us, we’d love to know where you go for a cheeky Sunday brunch!

Our favourite Fish & Chips!

This is the latest in our summer blogs, aimed to fill you in on our favourite places to go, especially over the holidays. This one is all about the most amazing British food, the mighty fish & chip supper! We had a discussion among us about which ones are the best and obviously we all think our own favourites are the winner… and readers, it was very nearly pickled gherkins at dawn! Who’d have thought it could be such a controversial subject?! Anyway, from beachfront, to simple fish bar to formal dining, what appeals to you?

Mathew Gurr, Area Sales Manager, Haywards Heath region

My favourite place is Lees on Queens Road, Haywards Heath, and although you can be at the back of a very long queue on a Friday night, the wait is well worth it! They have been there for years, always happy to see us, great chips, batter is perfect!

Alex Goodman, Area Sales Manager, Brighton region

Although technically, Riddle & Finns is a fine dining fish restaurant rather than a “fish & chip shop”, I have to put this forward as my favourite. The food is incredible, and the location under the arches in Brighton with the wine menu put this at the top of the list for me! A must visit on special occasions.

Louise Simpson, Area Sales Manager, Reigate region

Captains Table on The Green at Warlingham is my top favourite, the chips are sheer perfection and the batter is crisp! What’s more to love?

Hannah Gunn, Lettings Manager

The best fish and chips are from Harbour Fish Bar for definite! The fish is fresh and cooked to order, and the service is great too.

Sarah Cohen, Sales Progression

We often find ourselves in Shoreham and our favourite thing to do it get fish & chips from Ropetackle and eat them out of the paper on the beach – simple pleasures!

Sarah Sproston, Marketing Manager

I’m renowned for my fish and chip fandom, but I would say my favourite ever is at Ossie’s Fish Bar in Whitstable. We love to get our takeaway and take it to the beach with a bottle of wine from “The Offy” – yes, that really is what it’s called. Our idea of a perfect evening while watching the sun go down.

Sam Webb, Land and New Homes Manager

On a day out to Brighton, fish and chips at the Regency is a must. Good old fashioned service with spectacular sea views and always a vibrant atmosphere.

Ben Hosmer, Sales Manager Tunbridge Wells region

Marinos Fish Bar do the best fish and chips in my view, near The Pantiles. Wonderful!

Paul Brice, Director

I have two favourites: Like Hannah above, I rate Harbour Fish Bar in East Grinstead with fresh fish cooked to perfection while you wait. The added bonus that it has a small restaurant section where you can eat in with table service. My other favourite is Lingfield Fish and Chips. Took over from Dave Dove about 5 years ago. Great fish and chips and also fantastic spicy chicken kebabs cooked to order on the grill. Delicious!

Mark Waldron, Area Sales Manager Sevenoaks region

Whenever I fancy fish and chips I always head to the same place, the Dolphin Fish Bar on London Road Sevenoaks. The fish is always freshly cooked and the chips are amazing.

So these are our favourite places, and we feel strongly about them! What are yours?

If you’re thinking of selling or letting your home, the team would love to speak to you and you can reach them on 0330 223 1000.
