There have been many changes in estate agency since 1982. Peter said: “In those days property details were black and white and typewritten. Then colour photos became the in thing and the agent would have to take the photos with a camera then later in the day a courier would pick the film up, develop it and bring it back in the morning. Then all the photos would be stuck on the property details. Then came the introduction of the computer that caused headaches for a while, things had changed and now it is difficult to comprehend how things happened without the modern technology”. Sheila said: “Peter has often gone above and beyond, he has been bitten by a dog, assisted the customers and it has never been just about the selling. The Industry has changed beyond recognition,” Both Peter and Sheila had the same sentiment, both were very emotional about their 35 years together in the business, they spoke highly of each other about how they both loved working together and how each was kind and supportive. Peter said : “It’s time to reassess, spend time with the Grandchildren and the family, take some much- needed time off and catch up on the decorating and gardening.” Anita Smith has been a Sales Secretary since 2008 and said : “We have kept him on his toes, I don’t know how he has put up with us, but we have been like a family.” Peter was enjoying a lovely farewell lunch in the shop when we spoke, and he would like the opportunity to thank all his customers for their loyalty and friendship over the years, he said that they have always come back to him over the years and he will never forget them.
