Tributes have been paid to an estate agent known for his “infectious giggle” and great sense of humour.
Gerald Flint, who with Jonathan Crook formed the Hertfordshire agency Flint & Cook in 1996, passed away last week.
Local media in the country report that the team at Flint & Cook issued a statement saying: "It is with extreme sadness that we have to announce the sudden passing of Gerard Flint. Words really can’t express how we feel at this time.
”Gerard was beyond passionate about Flint & Cook, and it was due to his endless enthusiasm and drive that saw us move to our prestigious new offices at No 22 Broad Street.
"He was equally well known in [the agency] Hereford and Bromyard (where it all began and still flourishes at 37 High Street) as a quiet and considerate man who always offered his clients a valued service.
"As a ‘boss’ he was supportive and thoughtful, with a wicked sense of humour and an infectious giggle. He has left a strong, close knit team in which he and his partner, Jonathan, have instilled a strong work ethic and a commitment to continue offering our clients the professional, approachable and friendly service that Flint & Cook are well known for.
"Mandy, Matthew, Harriet, Charlie and all at Flint & Cook thank you all for your kindness at this time."
