Sarah is Your Local Lettings Expert
Finders Keepers is delighted to report that Sarah Carroll has returned to run their Bicester office, based in Market Square. Sarah is a true local expert; having grown up in the town, she joined Finders Keepers in 2008 as a Tenancy Co-ordinator in the 'newly opened' Bicester office.
Sarah says, "I originally applied for a job in property management with Finders Keepers, back in 2007. Having no property experience at that time, I did not get the job, but I got a really good feeling about the company from that interview and was keen to work with them. I went away and became a Property Administrator for another agency in order to the gain the experience I was missing. After a year or so I got back in touch with Finders Keepers and, as it happened, they were looking for a Tenancy Co-ordinator for their new Bicester office."
A key member of the team, she soon became Office Co-ordinator taking on more responsibilities, including some accounts tasks. In her time in this role, Sarah gained a lot of experience in negotiating tenancies and, in 2011, cemented her knowledge by completing the ARLA Propertymark Level 3 Award in Residential Letting & Property Management. In 2016 she moved from an administrative role to a letting position and has since worked in two of our Oxford offices, working up to Office Manager of our Central Oxford office.
In 2020 she went on maternity leave, welcoming her twins last summer, before returning as Bicester Office Manager in June this year and is currently working on gaining her Level 4 ARLA Propertymark qualification, which will make her a Fellow of ARLA Propertymark. She says, "I'm thrilled to be back in my home town. I'm really looking forward to bringing my letting experience and expertise to landlords here. We have a great team, with a combined 63 years' service with Finders Keepers, and all seven of us are qualified to Level 3 so can offer a truly expert service to our clients."
"I think Bicester is such a great town. People are so friendly and it's in a great location, with easy access to Oxford, London and Birmingham. I was born and bred here and still count my school friends as my closest. I'm excited to raise my family here with everything the area has to offer " we've got the city of Oxford we well as beautiful countryside on our doorstep. Bicester has grown and developed so much over the last 30 years or so and it's scheduled to continue growing over the next two decades with new jobs and houses and I am looking forward to being a part of that growth."
