Spicerhaart has appointed Countrywide’s former Retail Director for East Anglia, Kim Chiles, as its new Divisional Partner for Felicity J Lord in London.
Kim, who had been with Countrywide for 26 years, said she relished the opportunity to return to the London market where she had spent many years previously during her career.
“I am looking forward to growing the Felicity J Lord brand. I want us to be recognised as the go-to place in the capital for people buying and selling, bringing to life the interesting diversity that London has to offer, which is especially important when people are thinking of where to live and work, and considering their other priorities in life.”
Kim began her estate agency career after a chance conversation. “I was looking for a house and someone told me they thought I’d make a good estate agent. I felt it would be interesting so I worked my way up from part-time telephone sales to Negotiator, Branch Manager, Regional Director then Retail Director. I’m a real people-person and I’ve loved every single day in estate agency.”
Spicerhaart CEO Paul Smith welcomed Kim to the team and said her high level of knowledge and skills would be a real asset to Felicity J Lord. “
Kim is exactly the kind of person we are looking for to help our brands continue to flourish and grow.” Kim, who is married with two children and a grandson, enjoys hiking in her spare time and is particularly interested in architecture. She is also a Magistrate in North East London.
As well as Felicity J Lord, Spicerhaart owns haart, Chewton Rose, Haybrook and Darlows and is the largest independent estate agency group in the UK.
