Property Jobs Today - who’s moving where, why and when

Welcome to another working week and with it, our regular update on appointments and moves within our industry.

Please let us know your key moves by emailing us at press@estateagenttoday.co.uk and we’ll tell the industry. Thanks!



Let’s start with the departure of the high profile group managing director of Arun Estates, David Lench, who is leaving after 40 years of service. 

He is succeeded by his almost equally long-serving right hand man, Aldo Sotgiu, currently the group’s managing director of operations.

“As you can imagine, this has not been a decision that has been easy to make, but two years ago I decided the time was approaching when I would pass the reigns over to Aldo. I have worked with him for much of my career and am totally confident that there will be a very smooth transition, with the continued success of the company assured” says David.


To central London now, where buying agency AWS Prime Property has appointed Jake Irwin-Brown as senior property consultant.

With a 10-year property career background that includes Aykroyd & Co, Harrods & Wetherell, Jake is now responsible for sourcing and acquiring homes for domestic and overseas clients with budgets up to £28m.

He’ll be working closely with managing director Alex Woodleigh-Smith as well as newly recruited property assistant, Maddy Montague


Still in the capital, Hamptons has welcomed two new property professionals to its team in Canary Wharf.

Adam Wolfryd joins from Felicity J Lord and assumes his role as senior head of sales with immediate effect whilst Daniel Derbyshire, also from Felicity J Lord will join the team as sales associate. 

Both bring with them a wealth of knowledge and expertise; together they share 50 years of property experience, with Adam already one of the longest serving agents in the area.


London’s Harding Green agency - which uses the broker model - has taken on Jack Graham-Lindsey.

He’s been 10 years in the business, mostly with Marsh & Parsons and more recently with another broker-model agency. He’ll be working in Little Venice - and he’s lived there for over 20 years.


And still in the capital Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices London Kay & Co has recruited Graciela Loveday into the Kings Cross sales team.

Graciela joins the sales division from Savills in Islington where she left as senior sales negotiator. Prior to this, since 2006 Graciela was part of The Currell Group - an independently owned estate agency acquired by Savills in December 2018.
