It is always a pleasure to give a break to sparkling local talent, so we have been really pleased by the progress of our newest signing, Emily Hänel.
Emily, from Derby joined us for her sandwich placement year from her Nottingham Trent University Real Estate Management degree in July and very soon felt like part of the team.
In September, she realised that she did not want to return to university full-time, so we were delighted to take her on to the staff and allow her to complete her course on day release.
Of course, Emily is still learning the ropes but she is already assisting with valuations, lease renewals and rent reviews.
She said: "I feel that this combination of works and study is helping me to develop an understanding of the industry at a much quicker rate by comparison to my previous two years in full-time education."
In her spare time Emily enjoys exercising her horses, travelling, going to the gym and socialising with friends and family.
It's a busy life for a young woman who should go far.
