When you’re ready for further...
Woking offers a wide range of properties and is situated approximately 25 miles from London. The town was originally a village, but with the arrival of the Basingstoke Canal and then the railway in 1838, the location suddenly became more accessible and started to grow. Fast trains run into Waterloo in just 27 minutes.
Woking is now one of the leading towns in the UK for the adoption of greener energy and to that effect has several combined heat and power stations. With the growth in population has also come the improving of the town with two fabulous shopping centres – the Wolsey Place and Peacocks.
Arts and leisure are also well documented in Woking with HG Wells using Horsell Common as the setting for his famous novel, War of the Worlds and the Lightbox Arts & Heritage Centre designed by Marks Barfield - architects of the London Eye.
Woking is also the home of McLaren racing and responsible for all their Formula 1 development. The other great export is, of course, Paul Weller from Stanley Road who has been instrumental in the success of The Jam, The Style Council and still currently in his solo career.
Katie began her career in fashion retail but it wasn't until 6 years ago when an opportunity arose at our Walton on Thames branch that she decided to follow her interest in property and join Aston Mead as a trainee lettings consultant. Eighteen months later and after moving to our Woking Office to gain experience in a very different type of lettings market, she returned to Walton on Thames as Assistant Manager before promotion again, this time to Manager.
During this time she studied for her ARLA Technical award in Residential Lettings and Property Management and within a year had qualified as a member of ARLA. In 2012 having managed the Walton Branch for two and a half years she was then given the opportunity to move back to Woking, an office in which she had thoroughly enjoyed working in, but this time as Manager.
In her spare time Katie enjoys cooking but also loves nothing better than going out to dinner and spending time with family and friends particulary if a glass or two of wine is involved!
On leaving school, Kevin started a 28 year career with Gascoigne-Pees working in a variety of offices from Sloane Square to Woking where he gained a wealth of experience even through the various property crashes!
The last 10 years have been spent working for a blue chip company as a Regional Director in the Surrey& West Sussex areas but growing tired of the daily commute he joined Aston Mead in the position of Sales & Lettings Director, bringing with him an expansive knowledge of the property market.Kevin is a local Chobham resident and is married to Jo with 2 grown up children. His passion is “speed” and he enjoys nothing better than a quick blast on his Harley Davidson or his sports car which he says he is “too old for, but still young at heart!” He cites his weakness as …. he works too hard!
