Our Team



Stephen Lane 


Stephen Lane has 32 years of agency experience, and is still as enthusiastic about helping people move as he was the day he started. Branching out alone in 2014, Stephen wanted to get away from the usual corporate Estate Agency and focus on service values. He will visit your home personally and discuss how you want your move to go, and how our service can help you achieve your goals 



Michelle Lane

Property Sales Advisor

Michelle, Stephen's wife, is always on hand to answer your enquiries and her main role is finding a buyer for your home, while helping with the day to day running of the office. Having worked as an agent for 10 years, before going independent, her experience is essential to helping people achieve their dream moves  



Samuel Bennett

Senior Property Consultant

Samuel has many years of Estate Agency experience, within both well known chains of Estate Agency, as well as running his own Estate Agency, so he is well placed to help you move. His likeable manner, along with his knowledge, mean that he naturally takes some of the stress of the move away from you.




Molly Couzens

Property Consultant

Molly is here to match the right buyer to your home. Her enthusiastic nature is infectious and the passion that she shows for your property, will soon rub off to your potential buyer.



Scott Warner

Essex Homes Online

Scott, and Stephen started their careers at similar times, and have worked closely together, on and off, for the best part of three decades, so it is no coincidence that tenacity towards customer care is paralleled between them.

Scott strengthens the team as an Independent Property Consultant and he takes control of our Essex Homes Online service, taking responsibility for servicing our properties that we sell outside of our natural office catchment.





Karen Sanders

Sales and Lettings Administrator

Behind every great team is a great organiser and Karen is just that. She ensures that you receive your property reports and updates. Nothing goes on in the office without it crossing Karen’s desk and she ensures it runs like clockwork.



Toni Green

Sales Progression

Toni is the lady that you need in your corner once a sale is agreed on your home. Her mission is to ensure that your move goes as smoothly as it can and Toni's tenacious attitude means that she will not rest until your transaction comes to a satisfactory completion. Located away from the main branch, but still very much part of the team, Toni will keep you informed of progress at all stages of your move.
