I’m a focused and driven individual, perhaps even a little obsessive. My main obsession is simplicity; there is always an easier way to achieve a better result. This was the main basis for my decision to launch Knight Edmonds.
Over the years I’ve worked as an agent I’ve helped over a thousand people to move home and it hasn’t always been easy. Studies show that the legal framework and conventions that govern property transactions rank moving as the most stressful life event. We have created a business designed to make the whole process, simpler and more transparent for all involved.
For me Estate Agency is less about sales and more about marketing. Our job is to help your property to achieve it’s full potential by showcasing engaging, transparent marketing materials that help buyers to make clear and informed decisions. They can then offer with confidence, excitement and certainty that your home is the right match for them. It is only when this is achieved that it becomes possible to achieve the best possible price. Attention to detail is crucial!
Outside of work my obsessions continue, with family right at the forefront. We’re currently a family of three, soon to be four. I fully understand the stresses of moving home while still trying to juggle life’s many other challenges; which is why we have created a simpler way.
When the chance came to partner and launch Knight Edmonds, I jumped at the opportunity to design a business based on what customers really want. Our vision is to provide a service that’s so good, that what is typically a very stressful process becomes – smooth, simple and enjoyable.
To achieve this we’ve set out three values; the building blocks for our business, simplicity, transparency and passion. We’ve integrated these values into everything we do. We provide full, comprehensive and transparent property details and ensure that we sell your property to the right person, not just the first to make an offer.
I’ve lived in and around Maidstone for over 20 years now and with this comes a deep understanding of each part of Maidstone, what’s important to the people that live there and why people choose to move there. This knowledge is invaluable when it comes to property match-making. We will stop at nothing until we find you the perfect match.
In my spare time, I socialise with friends and family. I also like to play football and snooker, helping me to maintain a sharp focus and a healthy lifestyle.
Matthew GrovesSales Manager
Born in Maidstone, I grew up and lived in and around the surrounding areas providing me with a wealth of local knowledge within Kent. I am a very enthusiastic and competitive individual with a keen eye for detail.
My career has always been in the sales industry from running retail stores to working within the car industry with many well-known prestigious brands. My love for property happened by chance when I returned from living abroad for many years and an opportunity was presented within the industry.
Starting within a corporate branded agent, I soon found my feet and was fast-tracked to valuing and managing multiple branches. After experiencing life within the corporate machine, I decided to change direction to join an independent agency where I learnt every element of not only managing but running a successful business whilst accomplishing many achievements along the way.
Now with 10 years’ experience, I have come to learn the importance of understanding and meeting all my client’s needs focusing on quality and attention to detail while managing their expectations. I attribute my success not only to my passion for property but also that I recognise and value the trust my clients have in me as I strive to exceed their expectations. My aim is to break the mould and show that not all agents are the same which is why I have chosen to work for Knight Edmonds estate agents.
When I am not working, I love to play sports, keep fit and most importantly enjoy spending quality time with my wife, daughter, and fur baby Blue: my Siberian husky.
Sandra GoldsmithSenior Sales Consultant
Before joining Knight Edmonds I have worked for several other agents within and around Maidstone. I bring with me a wealth of knowledge and experience from a career spanning 32 years in the industry, during which time I have helped buyers and sellers alike move on to pastures new. You are therefore in good hands, and can rest assured that I will be there to guide and advise you through every step of your sale and / or purchase.
I am extremely approachable, open minded and calm, and I will do everything within my power to assist you with your move and / or purchase.
When I am not working I spend my free time socialising with my family, friends and extended family.
Lauren WilkesSales Consultant
Prior to joining Knight Edmonds, I was a property manager looking for my next step in my career. I have always been interested in property but being an Estate agent is what I really want to do. Joining an independent agency, I knew this was a great opportunity for me and I am excited to learn from Sam, Alex, and the rest of the team.
Having only just started my career in estate agency, I am excited to be a part of an agency that really cares about its clients and not just the sales it achieves. I am looking forward to developing my career and getting to know my clients as well as finding them the perfect home!
I am approachable, confident, and business minded. In my spare time I enjoy socialising with my friends and going shopping.
Jack SmithMarketing Executive
My background is in videography and photography, mostly in the estate agency industry where I have four years’ experience. Additionally, I have spent a year working for a digital marketing agency which gave me more insight into the online world of Google and social media advertising.
Having worked with Alex and Sam previously, helping them get started with some marketing content when they were initially setting the agency up in 2020, it was a very welcome opportunity when they offered me a permanent position. It's a privilege to be part of a fast growing and dynamic company who see the need to do things differently.
My real passion is visual content, creating interesting posts that tell a story, get people’s attention, and make an impact. I have a vivid imagination and a creative drive that perfectly lend themselves to presenting and marketing properties in a way that is both engaging and enticing.
Beyond my work I am a father and partner first and foremost, but I do enjoy running, working out, good food and a decent box set.
