Dawsons Love Story

In this, the month of love, we reflect on the love that has blossomed at Dawsons over the years. There is many a love story but today we will tell you about 3 of these special love stories ....

Dawsons love stories

Firstly our very own lettings director Ricky came to work at Dawsons as summer relief staff and 20 years on is still here. But during that early summer way back in the millennium, Ricky moved from one office to another and at the same time Hannah was moved from one office to another and by chance, it was the same office. They soon became close and love blossomed, and now several houses later they are married with two beautiful children.

The second of our tales is Aimee and Shaun Sturgess. Aimee working in our Morriston lettings and Shaun in our Morriston Sales, you couldn’t write a better love story some may say. After some time Shaun took Aimee to Paris and popped the question and now still working together, albeit different area’s now, they are still very much in love and recently celebrated their first wedding anniversary.

The newer Dawsons romance scene is set with Tom Hope of our Fine & Country department. Tom previously worked with our mumbles lettings team before assuming his current position. Whilst heading up our mumbles lettings team we had a new employee (Sally), Tom and Sally soon fell in love with their shared love of fishing… their love blossomed on the boat and now two children and their first home later, what’s next for this beautiful pair.

Industry News:

Sales to rise in 2020

Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors EVENT

With the General Election now safely behind us, the UK housing market appears to have moved up a gear over the last month, according to the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). The latest RICS Residential Market Survey, suggests that buyer and seller sentiment appears to have improved noticeably in many parts of the country since Boris Johnson’s landslide win last month. This is backed up when looking at the longer term, where 66%% of surveyors who participated in a survey predicted that sales will rise in the year ahead, up from 35% previously.

Simon Rubinsohn, RICS Chief Economist, is still circumspect for now and said: “The signals from the latest RICS survey provides further evidence that the housing market is seeing some benefit from the greater clarity provided by the decisive election outcome."

With this new-found clarity and ever strong demand for housing now is the time to get your property on the market. Please contact one of our Dawsons sales offices for your free valuation today.
