Ex-England, Surrey and Hampshire cricketer Chris Tremlett, who recently retired from the sport because of injury, has joined Berkshire-based agency The Home Cloud.
The Home Cloud was launched in May by Tom Jewell, a cricketing colleague of Tremlett at Surrey, and says its sales and lettings inventory and business have exceeded expectations.
It specialises in sales and lettings in Berkshire, Surrey and North Hampshire and carries a mission statement to clients including the claims: "We don't hide our fees or complicate them. We don't charge a premium to pay for a fancy high street shop. We don't hit you with sneaky extras or tie you in to long contracts"
Tremlett - who took 53 wickets for England in 12 test matches between 2007 and 2012 as well as a veteran of 15 one-day internationals and one Twenty20 match - will have responsibility for finding properties for investors as well as managing sales and lettings at the London-end of the agency.
"I'm looking forward to applying the same focus and determination that enabled me to achieve my England ambitions to my new career" says Tremlett, 34.
Jewell has in the past worked for two major Australian estate agencies, for London property law company Pemberton Greenish, and for London agency group Thamesview.
