Property sales and lettings were strong for Livingroom at the end 2019 and early 2020 until the forced Coronavirus lockdown period. Since Jersey moved into current phasing, the market recovery has been quicker than expected - with even greater activity than before led by a more emotive approach to buying and letting homes.
Simon Torode, Livingroom’s Founder, CEO, said that Mark is joining at the perfect time:
“The market at the moment is incredibly busy so adding Mark’s experience and know-how will really strengthen our team and help them to meet demand.
“The pandemic has made islanders realise that where they live is a major part of their personal happiness and wellbeing, so a lot of people have been inspired to make a move.
“Mark’s appointment is the latest part of our growth story in Jersey, since we launched here in October 2018, and it’s testament to our team’s dynamism and incredibly hard work that we’ve made such a meaningful impact in the Jersey property world.”
With a career encompassing both residential and commercial sales on the island, Mark has a broad knowledge of the property market and combines this with a genuine passion and interest in the sector.
Mark said: “I’m delighted to have joined Livingroom and look forward to meeting vendors and buyers and help them navigate the market. Livingroom has stood out from the moment they arrived in Jersey and I’m excited to join and be part of their high-quality offering with plans for future growth.”
Livingroom launched in Jersey in 2018 and in 2019, the Jersey office was named best new agency of the year for the whole of the UK at the prestigious Negotiator Awards.
