Vanessa Nicholson

Mortgage adviser & team leader

After finishing my schooling in Yorkshire, I went to work in a variety of companies, including a great position in one of the largest Premiership football clubs. I was attracted to the role at Alexander Hall due to the earnings potential and being in an environment where I would be rewarded according to the amount and quality of work I put in. The moment I had the interview I was drawn to the energy, excitement and dynamic structure of the organization.

The detailed induction training helped me gain a better understanding of the business and how to build relationships with clients in order to generate repeat business. Starting as a Move consultant in our sister company Foxtons meant that everything was broken down to the basics, which helped me build my knowledge of the property market and the estate agency process.

As I have progressed through each stage, I have been guided and trained to an incredibly high standard, giving me the best opportunities to succeed and grow. I was also supported by the company in acquiring my CeMAP qualifications. Coming from a non-finance/mortgage role, I feel this has been invaluable for my development. There is so much support from a group of people who want to see you succeed and what I found the most helpful is that everyone is approachable.

I then progressed to a Mortgage adviser role before being promoted to Associate director, which boosted my earnings potential further. After fulfilling the role of Associate director, I found myself wanting to support and develop other advisers to achieve their potential in the way I had been supported throughout my career in Alexander Hall. With additional support and guidance, I'm pleased that my further promotion to team leader was possible and I now manage a team of advisers at different levels in their careers. I love the variety in the roles I've worked in and the opportunities I'm continuously given to expand within the company, allowing me to achieve my personal and professional goals whilst simply focusing on my role and using the skills I have learnt and accessing the support network within the company.
