Meet the Team - Hessle Office New Search Philip Bannister FNAEA FARLA I started my career in 1973 with family firm, Spring Estate Agency, and have traded in Hull & the East Riding villages all my professional life. Gaining recognised membership as a Fellow of the National Association Of Estate Agents & Member Of Association Of Residential Letting Agents. As well as family practice I have been involved in Corporate Estate Agency, partnerships and our current business set up in 1998 with my wife Mo. I have always been determined to deliver a highly personalised service with frankness at all times and have a treasured reputation for discretion and integrity. Mo Bannister After starting my working life as a teacher, I joined Philip at Spring Estate Agency in the mid 1980 s and quickly progressed to ultimately managing one of Yorkshire's most successful and profitable branches within a corporate company following the sale of Spring. I thoroughly enjoy the day-to-day operation and could not imagine doing anything else. I believe my personality and people skills have allowed me to not only succeed within the industry as an individual but shape the company which we run today. Sue Mcauley I have been an Estate Agent since starting my career with Philip & Mo at Spring Estate Agents in 1987. After the company was bought out I stayed on as a Sales Negotiator and progressed to Senior Sales Negotiator with them until 1994 when I moved to another Corporate Agency as a Sales Negotiator/Valuer. I progressed through to Branch Manager/Estate agency partner until 2007, then had a change of career into retail. After a couple of years in retail I missed the buzz of Estate Agency so much I came back to Philip and Mo Bannister as Branch Manager and Valuer. I made the best move ever and love working in this thriving company where your input counts and contact with the public is paramount. Jennie Wilkinson I started my career in retail in 2001 and gained many qualifications whilst thriving in a fast pasted environment. After a few year in retail and always having an interest in the property market, I joined a local agent in 2007. Starting out as a trainee and progressing through to a Sales Negotiator role covering the Hull and East Yorkshire Region. After 8 years I decided I wanted a fresh approach with an established Agent that provided an excellent level of service. I was approached by Philip Bannister to join their team and what an amazing experience it has been so far. I am now looking forward to the future with Philip Bannister & Co and eagerly await further challenging and rewarding experiences. Mark Mercer I have been in the mortgage industry since 1980 when I joined Halifax Building Society. I am a qualified Mortgage and Protection Adviser and have access to the whole of the market. I initially worked for Philip and Mo 20 years ago and have recently returned to the fold. It was a pleasure to be welcomed back into the family and look forward to working with the team going forward. I am highly delighted to be working in such a friendly environment Alex Bannister After graduating from Northumbria University in the Summer of 2015, it seemed almost inevitable that I would follow in both my father and Grandfathers footsteps and become an Estate Agent, working alongside my Parents at Philip Bannister & Co. I understand that it will take time for me to develop into the Estate Agent I wish to become, however, under the guidance and tutelage of both my parents and the fantastic team we have here, I have every confidence that I will get there sooner rather than later.
