Behind the Scenes: Emma Farmer

Tell us a little bit about yourself.                                                       

I grew up in Henley-on-Thames and moved to London straight after studying at university and have lived in Pimlico for five years.


How long have you been an estate agent for?

I have worked as an estate agent coming up to five years and since becoming a negotiator I have always worked for Douglas & Gordon.


What’s the greatest thing about working for Douglas & Gordon?

I love the people I work with and the strong morals of the company.


What’s the funniest story you have from your time at Douglas & Gordon?

Walking in on the aftermath of what was obviously a very good party – there were bottles and bodies everywhere!


When you’re not in the office or showing people around, what do you do in your spare time? Any interesting hobbies we should know about?

I play tennis at least once a week and love to get back to Henley to spend time with my family and dogs.


What questions do you most commonly get asked by clients/customers?

What is the lowest fee you can offer?


What advice do you have for people looking to buy or rent in Battersea Park?

Don’t be put off by the lack of tube station in the area. The buses and over ground train stations are brilliant around here and it’s a much nicer way to get around.


What do you love about Battersea Park? What are your favourite hangouts? Where do you grab your coffee in the morning, or take a business lunch?

The park is amazing and is the perfect picnic spot to meet up with friends after work. Our office is also next door to Caffetino which is the nicest spot for a coffee in the morning sunshine, or a hot Panini for lunch.


What would you say to anyone looking to move into the area?

You’ll love it! It’s perfect for families and young professionals alike. There’s a great range of property and the area is constantly changing and improving.


If you could wave a magic wand and change one thing about the property market, what would it be?

I would make it a bit more consistent. It can be very quiet over Christmas, so it would be nice if we could start a Christmas rush!
