DM & Co. Homes recruits experienced valuations manager as it gears up for growth

Solihull’s leading independent estate agent DM & Co. Homes has recruited an experienced valuations manager as it gears up for a busy start to 2023.

Sophie Gwynne brings 14 years of experience and a wealth of knowledge of the property industry to the company which covers Solihull, Knowle, Dorridge, Lapworth, Tanworth-in-Arden and the surrounding areas.

DM & Co. Homes has offices in Solihull, and Dorridge where Sophie is now based.

She said: “I’m so excited to be joining one of the best forward thinking estate agents in the local area. DM & Co. sold more than £140 million worth of property last year, with 90% of these achieving over the asking price.

“I am working closely with our sales director Lisa Smith whose proactive approach and extensive knowledge of the local area is second to none.

“We have been out on viewings and valuations together and, judging by the number of valuations booked already in the New Year, it’s clear that the property market in this area is bursting to life after the festive break.”

Lisa Smith said: “Sophie has gained experience across the board, including working for a local independent estate agent and developers such as Seven Capital in Birmingham, where she was responsible for selling property off-plan. She is already building valuable relationships with our clients.”

Sophie added: “The property market has changed so much over the last 12 months which can be extremely confusing for most homeowners so whether you’re thinking about selling, would like a free up-to-date valuation or just want to talk through your next move.

“The New Year is a time when many homeowners realise that, with the family having moved on, they could downsize to their advantage, and we also have many buyers with families looking for their next move, so it is a very fluid and active market.”
