I started my first job in a five-office independent estate agency on 17th April 1985, the day after I left school. After 6 months of making tea, photocopying & filing, I was promoted to Trainee Negotiator and then worked my way up the ranks in order to run the company’s top office at the tender age of 19. I later became the youngest ever Manager at one of London’s blue-chip firms and moved onto a spell in corporate estate agency, before setting up Chase Buchanan in 1994. As a long standing member of the NAEA, I am also ARLA qualified. I often miss life ‘on the ground floor’ and I’m always keen to tag along to meetings with old clients.
Colin Deer MARLA MNAEA,
I started my agency career at Sturgis Estate Agents in South West London, running the high profile Putney office. I worked my way up the corporate ladder with Prudential Property Services and then Woolwich Property Services, ending up as a Regional Director with 22 offices. Starting Chase Buchanan in 1994 as joint Managing Director, our first office was based in Twickenham and our additional offices opened in Hampton Hill, St Margarets, Richmond, Isleworth and Teddington. We currently have a team of approximately 60 members of staff and pride ourselves on working alongside some of the best names in the industry. My philosophy is ‘we are nothing without the people who work alongside us’. I still get a huge thrill out of making clients happy and exceeding their expectations.
I began my career as an Estate Agent back in 1985 and have always worked in south-west London, with the majority of that time spent in the Richmond Borough. I joined Chase Buchanan as the Sales Manager of our Twickenham Office in 1995, one year after their inception and became a Director just 2 years later. Since then, I have gone on to open three new branches, headed up the Land & New Homes Department and have been instrumental in helping the company to progress to where it is today. I pride myself on my people skills and have always enjoyed meeting new clients and go the extra mile to help ensure their move is as smooth as possible. I am now keeping busy in my role as Managing Director, but still find time to stay active with running, tennis, football and skiing.
I started working in our Twickenham Lettings office in 2007 as a Lettings Negotiator. Having worked my way up through the ranks, I now hold the title of Senior Lettings Manager based primarily out of our longest running lettings office in Heath Road, Twickenham.
Since attending St Mary's University, I have been based in and around the Twickenham area and have a fantastic knowledge of the local area. I have built a great rapport with many of our clients who return time and time again. In my spare time I enjoy nothing more than watching a game of rugby with a pint of Guinness and friends.
Aiden Lynch MARLA,
Senior Lettings Manager
My career in the industry started in 1996 and I have been with Chase Buchanan since 2002, where I now hold the title of Senior Sales Manager. I’ve been lucky enough to spend time working across our several offices including Hampton Hill, Twickenham, St Margarets and now Isleworth. I have enjoyed the opportunity to experience the different areas and help many people move throughout the borough. My spare time is dedicated to sports and socialising; I currently play for a successful football team and I’m also an avid skier, whenever I can tear myself away from work.
