Associate director celebrates decade at top Birmingham estate agency she helped build
A top Birmingham estate agency is about to celebrate the 10th anniversary of an associate director whose local knowledge helped establish and build the business over the last decade.
Melissa Petros joined Davidson Estates, whose head office is at 14a Frederick Road, in Edgbaston, as a lettings negotiator and viewer working just two days a week back in June 2012.
Her local knowledge of properties around Edgbaston, Harborne and Birmingham city centre soon proved its value, earning her the role as associate director at the firm.
Ms Petros, who was raised and still resides in Edgbaston, said: “It really doesn’t feel like 10 years as time always flies when you’re enjoying yourself.
“I remember seeing a job advert for Davidson Estates and saw that it was based in Edgbaston and I thought: ‘I know Edgbaston – that might be the job for me!
“I got the job and started part-time as a lettings negotiator and viewer, and those two days a week soon became three days, then four, then five days and more!
“Today, my main role is to carry out the sales and lettings valuations for new properties coming on to the market.
“Ben and I also maintain relationships with our clients and build new ones every day which is the foundation of our success.
“I was born, grew up and still live in the B15 area and have a real passion for the area.”
Ben Davidson, the founder and managing director of Davidson Estates, interviewed Ms Petros back in 2012 and offered her the job the very next day.
He said: “Melissa was a great find and is responsible for a major part of Davidson Estate’s expansion, reputation and quality.
“She just knows the Edgbaston market so well and, since this prime suburb is such a vital part of the company, her knowledge has been crucial for our growth.
“I can’t quite believe it’s been 10 years and we’re determined to celebrate her role and the way she has helped me make such a success of the firm.”
Ms Petros added: “I’ve loved working with Ben and the team over the last ten years.
“Ben and I got on from the moment we met at my interview, with the same hard work ethic and passion for the business.
“I’m proud of how my local knowledge helped the business and together we’ve built an established company that has such a good reputation across Edgbaston and the wider city.”
