Meet The Team – Jennifer Shaw

Posted on: 1 August 2017

What’s your nickname?


What do you do?

I am a Sales & Lettings Negotiator.

How long have you worked at Hawkins for?

I have been working here for nearly 6 years.

What was the property industry like when you first started and has it changed?

It was just as busy as it is now. I had started just after the recession had hit and have since witnessed a steady incline to the current market we are in today.

What challenges do you face on a daily basis?

I find that breaking the stereotypical mould of an estate agent persona is something we all deal with on a daily basis.

What is your favourite thing about your job?

My favourite thing about my job is sharing the excitement, especially with first time buyers when they collect their keys.

Dog or cat?

Cats every time.

How do you unwind after work?

I enjoy family time the most. Also, being a part of my netball team.     

Choose a film for the story of your life?

Mary Poppins because she is practically perfect in every way!!

What makes a good client?

For me as an experienced professional, a good client is someone that trusts and listens to my advice.

If you could give one piece of advice – what would it be?

Visit a broker regarding your mortgage! Don’t always trust the bank. Also, doing your research on your chosen areas also helps with finding you the perfect home!


If you would like to have a chat with Jennifer, or any other member of our team about how we may be able to help you, please feel free to get in touch– we’d love to hear from you.
