Meet the Team:

Lisa Curran


My strong work ethic and business focus started at an early age when I worked in my parents business from the tender age of 13. Following my Business Studies degree at university, and successful early career in Banking, I decided to take over the business from the founder, my sister Jackie Wilson, who remained with the business for a further 8 years. It is our likeable, genuine team that makes us different. We are all passionate and take pride in our productive work and in the successful business which we have grown consistently year on year.

I have three children and, as a family, we live locally. I enjoy spending time with my young family. For many years I have been a keen property investor and have spent my spare time developing property as well as being a regular at various investment and Estate Agent seminars and meetings. I am passionate about two things: people and property. I would love to hear from you. If you would like to talk property, please drop me a line.
