Sharena Ansell

Since 2001, we have been involved in purchasing, renovating, interior designing and decorating, home staging, selling and moving within Hertfordshire, Middlesex and Buckinghamshire. We have significant experience in the UK property market, along with expertise gained overseas in the residential property sector. Our understanding is demonstrated in the maximised sales values of all our properties, and this is proven further by the short amount of time it has taken us to sell each property.

We have Diplomas in Design & Decorating and Internet Marketing, as well as tertiary qualifications in business administration and commerce. Alongside these are our individual specialisms in project management and quality assurance which we have obtained in the UK and overseas. Our qualifications and experiences have proved invaluable for us in the property market. With the intention of helping as many people as possible, we have also written The Property Handbook to share our experiences and learning.

We are from friendly New Zealand and have a can-do attitude like the All Blacks! We have been directly involved in buying, renovating, home staging, selling and moving homes, so we know how important personal Customer Service is in all these areas. With each of us having gained over 20 years of experience in the consulting market in the City, we are mindful of the value of professional practice and working collaboratively with Customers and Partners. The different teams we outsource to share our vision and core values.

OUR SERVICES

Do It Yourself (DIY)

Our book explains how to buy or sell a property, undertake a home renovation project, stage a house for sale or move home. There is also a chapter dedicated to interior design and decorating concepts and how you can apply these ideas. Additionally, we have included information on stress, conflict and issue management. The Q&A section provides guidance on renovation projects and a resource list supplies useful links and information. Whether you’re a local home owner or an international developer, this book is packed with insider tips, checklists and tools to fast track your property success.

This service is based on consultations and provides you with support and guidance while you are navigating through the activities during any of the phases. It means we will hold your hand as you are buying, renovating, staging, selling or moving home, and you don’t have to undertake any part of this journey on your own because we will be there to help you, wherever you or we are.

Do It For You (DIFY)

We offer a DIFY service either by undertaking the project ourselves or through our trusted outsourcing partners, whether it's sourcing properties, products or trades people. We can facilitate during the phases or completely hand over to partners who can manage your project until completion.
