Staff Profiles

Matthew Wales – Partner
Matthew’s estate agency career started in 1998 working for a small independent lettings agency in Docklands. After establishing a grounding and much success in the industry, Matthew, ever the entrepreneur, felt the time was right to set up on his own and created Homezone in 2001. Initially working from his spare bedroom and dealing with residential lettings, Matthew’s mission was to separate himself from the numerous other agents by providing a unique tailored service for investment clients. As this recipe proved increasingly successful, Matthew moved his business to a serviced office in Beckenham. Recommendations continued and in 2005 the demand for more space and the need to further expand was met when Matthew joined forces with Neil and opened the office in Beckenham Lane.

Neil Maguire MNAEA – Partner
Neil’s career in estate agency stretches back to 1993 when, at the age of 20, he started out as a trainee negotiator for Curtis Haines in Beckenham High Street. Neil’s enthusiastic and energetic approach to the business saw him swiftly promoted to the role as manager of the local Shortlands office by the age of 24. From there, Neil ran a successful branch and firmly established himself as the leading local agent with an excellent reputation for providing top level customer service. Neil knows Shortlands like the back of his hand and is proud of the fact that much of his business is either repeat or from recommendation.

Esther Bailey – Lettings Manager
Esther brings over ten years of experience working within both sales and lettings. Esther came on board with HZ back in 2006 having been head-hunted from an established rival firm. Her vast knowledge of the industry and ability to adapt has seen her role within the organisation evolve as the business has grown. She now holds a senior position within the lettings department and is primarily responsible for administration within the division. Esther is a fantastic organizer and keeps the office (and staff!) in check.

Denise Haines – Sales Negotiator
Denise’s estate agency career started in 2000 originally as a part time negotiator for a small local firm in Beckenham. Having progressed to a full time position, she was tempted away from her role to join us at HZ in 2007. Denise enjoys dealing with people and always builds up a good rapport with clients. Her role is office based and she is our ‘rock’ – never flustered and always on hand to resolve issues and chase all those that need chasing. Denise has lived locally all her life and has extensive knowledge of the surrounding area.
