Managing Director

Estate agent man and boy! In fact my granny said I would be an estate agent (still not sure why!) when I was 12, and my training started at 19! For over 30 years since then, I have helped people move from one property to another that they feel will fit their needs better. I know it’s cheesy: but it’s a genuine privilege to be able to do that and I’m nowhere near tired of it yet (helped by running daily too!). We’ve got a great team here, all hand-picked and many hand-trained by me, and I’d be thrilled if we can help you at some point.

Debbie Durant MARLA
Operations and Residential Lettings Director

Having worked in corporate estate agency for, well, too many years, it was a breath of fresh air to move to Mark Templer as an independent agency. After just a couple of weeks here, in 2007, Mark asked me and Giovanna to set up a property rentals office. We started with just one property, but now manage one of the largest portfolios in the area – something of which I am very proud!

Residential Lettings Manager

I started working part time at Mark Templer in 2006 and opened the lettings office with Debbie in 2008 – and I’m very proud of how the business has grown – today being one of the leading agents in Clevedon. I’ve lived in Clevedon all my life and especially enjoy mid-Clevedon for walking dogs around Herbert Gardens and Sunhill Park.

Residential Sales PA and Sales Progressor

I started working here as a weekend sales receptionist in 1996. Every day is different, which is great, and I still love seeing excited buyers and tenants come in to collect their keys on completion day. To switch off after a hard day, I watch my two whippets Ralph and Vinnie race each other along the seafront – followed by a cheeky caramel latte at one of Clevedon’s many vibrant cafes!

Selling homes is something I have always wanted to do. As my first full time job I can say, being an estate agent has totally met my expectations – I love it! Working from Yatton office allows me to use my experience of dealing with both town and country property throughout the North Somerset area.

Outside of work hiking, climbing and anything that makes me ache is generally what I like to do.

Residential Lettings Consultant

I started as a Lettings Consultant in 2012 after leaving Liverpool Uni, and it was a brilliant introduction to the working world. The team are really friendly and encouraging making it a happy place to work. Dreadful cliché alert: I really do think we all do all we can to do things right for our customers. Hard work though it is, I relax by cooking (love Masterchef!) and running in Clevedon’s beautiful scenery.

Bridget Guiver

Bridget Guiver
Residential Sales Consultant

Lived here since 2012 while renovating a Victorian house, and help Mark out when it gets really busy, so it’s never dull when I’m in! My two children go to local schools and we all love a walk with our cocker spaniel puppy, especially at Ladye Bay and Green Bay. Clevedon has lots in walking distance: Hill Road’s cafes and boutique shops, the Curzon cinema, Teatro Lounge and even the supermarkets, dentists, doctors, vets are nearby!

Lucy Brown
Residential Lettings Consultant

I have been a Letting Consultant for almost two years now. Although I’ve lived in Clevedon all my life, it wasn’t until I started here that I realised how little I actually knew about the local area! Suffice to say my knowledge has vastly improved – Mark wouldn’t have it any other way! Come in and challenge me with a question…

A local actress at heart, I have always thoroughly enjoyed living and being a local girl in Clevedon.

Working at Mark Templer Residential Sales is a fantastic opportunity for me to fulfil my dream of being an estate agent and I’m learning plenty of new skills along the way.

I love the challenge of finding clients their dream home and enjoy working with such a friendly and encouraging team.

Aga Moncur

Aga Moncur
Residential Lettings Consultant

I started in the lettings team as a Saturday viewings negotiator and now work in the week as well in the tenancy team. I help to prepare tenancies, create the ‘Inventory and Schedule of Condition’ for each property, and carry out the dreaded property inspections. It’s a friendly team I love to meet new people. I also like to cycle along Marshalls Fields and watch the boats.

Teresa Payne

Teresa Payne
Residential Sales Administrator

I lived in Tickenham before moving to Clevedon in 1990, so I really am a local girl. I love the area – it’s been the perfect place to bring up my three children, with lots of sea air and open space, but with all Bristol has to offer not far away. At work it’s great to meet people from all walks of life and be part of a team that makes people’s property search as easy and enjoyable as possible.

Residential Lettings Administrator

Needing a new challenge, I joined Mark in 2014 – and being in a busy office was definitely the best way to get to know the rental business quickly! Organising the maintenance for our clients’ properties can certainly be a challenge but gratifying when a job is finished and all hoovered up! I’ve lived in Clevedon since 1999 and love the seafront for family walks and a meal with friends in our brilliant local pubs and restaurants, like Mon Plaisir on Hill Road.

John Appleton
Weekend Residential Sales Consultant

John is a Devonshire lad born and bred and has been living in Clevedon for nearly 30 years. He brings the experience and people skills gained from many years spent in retail management and personnel. John enjoys meeting clients as our weekend viewings chap. He really enjoys helping people find the right home! In his spare time, he enjoys nothing more than a round of golf or running around after his 12 grandchildren and pug puppy!

Estate Agency has given me over thirty years of diverse, enjoyable employment. I first joined Mark in 1997 and I still possess a huge passion for every aspect of the job. Finding the appropriate home for its future owner is tremendously satisfying. My leisure time is spent walking my adorable dog Thatch, reading, Scrabble clubbing and enjoying good pub food with even better speciality ales!

I have recently re engaged with my love of the property market by re-joining Mark Templer Residential Sales. Having previously worked with the team it’s great to be back to involved in such a vibrant working environment.

If I am not at work I can usually be found shovelling horse muck followed by a stiff glass of wine!

Charlotte

Charlotte Biggs

I work at Mark Templer Residential Lettings as a Lettings Consultant. This is my second spell in the property industry having previously worked in town planning and another residential lettings business prior to having a career break to have my children. I greatly enjoy my work as Clevedon and its surrounding area is filled with such a wonderful variety of differing styles of property.

In my spare time you will find me running along Clevedon's seafront or beachcombing on Ladye bay.
