Fiona is the Founder and Director, starting the business ‘Banfield Estate Agents LTD’, in 2002.
Having worked for both large corporate agents and for smaller family run firms, Fiona decided to set up her own Independent Agency, seeing an opportunity to combine her knowledge and passion and inject a much needed personal touch. Thus Banfield Estate Agents was born.
Known affectionately as ‘Fiona the Owner’, Fiona is still the driving force behind Banfield’s success and starts each day with the same enthusiasm, as if it were day one. Fiona has a trusted local reputation and this has supported her long standing success as one of Crowborough’s longest established Independent Estate Agents.
Being a mother of three, Fiona feels that she now has the perfect work/ life balance but still fully embraces the curveballs any growing family experiences. This hands on family experience coupled with her own recent sale and purchase of property, only strengthens Fiona’s empathy and understanding when dealing with our range of Clients.
