Sarah trained in central London where she qualified as a solicitor in March 2013. She joined Chattertons in February 2018.
Sarah, a solicitor in the Commercial Property department, deals with all aspects of transactions in commercial real estate. Having worked in the legal sector in central London for seven and a half years, Sarah could no longer resist the call of the wild countryside and returned to her Lincolnshire roots to work with Chattertons in February 2018.
While Sarah is positioned primarily within the Commercial Property team, she also specialises in high-end residential property transactions as she believes that a good knowledge of both property sectors has always proved to be a great asset. Not only is this an advantage when the two divisions overlap, but it also works well for client continuity purposes.
Sarah particularly enjoys developing lasting partnerships with her existing client base but also loves building friendly working relationships with new clients. It is important that her clients feel comfortable and confident from the very start of any transaction, and that they know that they are able to pick up the telephone and ask questions at any time.
Based primarily at Chattertons’ Stamford office, Sarah also continues to work within the London market with her existing clients and with her growing network.
Having been learning the mandolin from her father since she was ten years old, Sarah has a number of folk tunes at her fingertips but is still unlikely to attain a Grade One standard. This, she says, is a reflection on her own ability rather than her father’s teaching. The theatre, arts, music and creative writing all play a large part in Sarah’s life. Art exhibitions and art galleries are a favourite haunt, and she loves to see good live theatre in the West End and beyond as often as she can. While she has finally accepted that she may never become the operatic superstar she believed destiny had in store for her, she hopes one day to write an operatic musical which those with rather more talent can perform.
Sarah volunteers with a befriending scheme for older, isolated people, and is a committed supporter of a number of other charities. Her hours spent volunteering are never wasted, she says, and the experience is invariably heart-warming.
