LESLEY HOOKS – Director
What has made you take the leap to start your own estate agency?
I absolutely love selling houses but became disillusioned with corporate sales, i.e the company became so obsessed with targets and touting that they forgot what type of business they were and who they actually worked for… the vendor, and I ended up with no time to actually sell houses, which is actually what I love doing!
How long have you been working in estate agency?
I have worked in the industry for over 23 years, 5 of them on my own.
Why use Dezrez?
I wanted a system that actually did most of the work for you with a simple click of a button and I
spoke to a few agents who used you and they recommended Dez Rez. I also wanted a
competent team of the same people at the end of a phone, which is exactly what I got!
How do you spend your time outside of work?
Since setting up on my own I don’t have any time to spend outside the business, it’s all work
What is your favourite food?
My favourite food is Italian and Chinese.
Where is your favourite holiday destination?
My favourite holiday destination is Ibiza but basically anywhere warm with a lounger, pool and a
handsome waiter who will wait on me hand and foot.
What is your dream car?
I am not really a car person, but if I had a choice with money being no object I would love
convertible Aston Martin.
If you could invite three people to dinner, alive or dead, who would you choose?
The three people I would invite to dinner are Margaret Thatcher, Michelangelo and Ricky Wilson
from The Kaiser Chiefs
