A Leicestershire estate agency director celebrating 25 years working in the industry says she still enjoys her job as much as she did on her first day at work.

Jill Griffiths, 62 (pictured, above seated second from right) is a director of three branch agency Andrew Granger & co who joined the company on May 31st 1995 following a City banking career and was subsequently instrumental in expanding the company including the opening of branches in Loughborough and Leicester, and moving into larger premises in Market Harborough.

She also had a small student lets portfolio and says she used this experience to build up Andrew Granger & Co’s lettings business.

The estate agency manages a book of approximately 1,000 properties across the East Midlands, making it one of the largest independent lettings agencies in Leicestershire.

“At the point I joined the company it was a small office on The Square next to Hobbs the fishmongers consisting of seven members of staff who predominantly dealt with agricultural and residential property sales,” she told local media.

“I can honestly say that I still enjoy the work as much as I did when I first started, although a lot has changed and there are clearly far more rules and regulations now.”

Last year Granger & Co celebrated its own milestone – 30 years in business and in 2018 was shortlisted for two awards at The Negotiator Awards
