About Us

Company Intro

Founded in 1977; we are renowned within the property industry for being an extremely successful property sales business, which prides itself on being at the forefront of embracing change and introducing our own innovative approaches in order to supply clients with more cost-effective and efficient methods of selling their properties.

Indeed it is our successes from the very beginning which have helped morph our business into the service provider to estate agents it is today. From our initial rollout of sharing our auction facility in the 1990's with like-minded estate agents, who also had recognised a space for auction in the location they operate, to supplying a fully white labelled tool which is currently utilised by our extensive list of Partner Agents, and which occupy every corner of the country.

Steering our service provision from a purpose-built 10,000 sq ft office in Newcastle Upon Tyne, itself operated by a team of more than 100 auction experts, we strive to ensure that our auction service is our Partners, very own Auction service. Indeed every angle is carefully considered in order to embed the facility within all of our Partners current property service offerings, ultimately helping each add an additional property service, at no cost to them, and crucially also guaranteeing that all of our Partners retain recognition for having what is in essence, their own property auction outlet.

With a variety of tailored auction products available, each of our Partners can be rest assured that we will fit the correct product to each of their valued customers.

Each of our Partners will also be supported by an experienced team of Business Development Managers; themselves with a wealth of agency knowledge; and who will personally be on hand to visit, assist, guide and advise so that auction is nurtured to become a valued outlet.

We recognise that customer service, and service delivery is key for any estate agency to succeed. To this end, we work tirelessly to support every one of our Partners, and every one of their respective clients, in order that each client which is shared with us, will be in safe hands.

Bobby Myers - London Auction Manager

Abigail Hall - North West Auction Manager

Jason Nicholson - Yorkshire Auction Manager

"After joining Keith Pattinson Estate Agent in 2017 I have thoroughly enjoyed my journey within the property industry working in various roles such as a Sales Negotiator, Auction Co-Ordinator, and currently Yorkshire Auction Manager. I have learned a lot throughout the years but continue to find myself progressing.

I enjoy nothing more than working closely with our partnered agents building relationships, achieving great success and it's fair to say that 'buzz' of closing a deal never wears thin.

Work aside, I am a passionate Newcastle United fan and love hosting parties/BBQs with friends, my wife and two children and attending live music concerts & festivals."  

Martin Baker - Midlands Auction Manager

Martin joined Pattinson Auction in April 2019, and prior to joining Pattinson he spent 8 years in the Residential Leasehold Management sector, where he managed numerous large developments and service charge budgets. 

Martin also served a highly successful 22-year career in the British Army and finished his military service in March 2011. 

Martin was appointed in the role of Midlands Region Auction Manager at Pattinson, and he has dedicated himself fully to the role and brought a positive change to all aspects of the role. 

Martin is very passionate about customer service, and this is reflected in his day-to-day work ethic. During his time in Residential Leasehold Management, Martin was awarded an industry award for customer service. 

Martin is always on hand to deal with enquiries and customers and does so on many occasions outside of working hours.  

Felix Keene - South West Auction Manager

Originally from Scotland, Felix joined Pattinson Auction in 2021 and started as an auction negotiator for the Northeast team, looking after the local Pattinson Branches and supporting them in growing auction sales. After eight months, he took on more responsibility as a Co-ordinator, driving the branches under his purview to excel in the auction field.


Now managing our Southwest Sales team and supporting our Spanish outfit, he brings his enthusiasm and passion for customer service to our fastest-growing area. Felix has always had a history in customer service and sales, living abroad for ten years before joining Pattinson Auction teaching SCUBA diving in Thailand and the Caribbean.


Always quick to learn, he has brought many team leadership skills to Auction. While property may be considered more challenging to sell than SCUBA lessons, he certainly doesn't let it show!


Motivated by success and a drive to prove the many merits of Auction, he is always on hand to assist his team and partner agents to ensure everyone receives the service levels expected by our clients.


These days, he prefers a quieter life, enjoying time with friends and family, but still finds time to indulge his underwater enthusiasm on holiday. Diving in the North Sea does not appeal to him for some reason.

Ness Mumford - Admin Manager

"Since leaving school at 16, I have always had a legal background working for solicitors in arears such as Probate, Wills, Private Client, Conveyancing, Criminal and Matrimonial. Coming from a legal background I have knowledge and I am able to give assistance to the auction teams when questions are raised by vendors or auction teams. I have been Auction Admin Manger for nearly 5 years and really enjoy my role.

I love spending time with my family and my grandchildren especially, cooking, making homemade breakfast quiches and cakes. 

I have two rescue dogs called Ruby and Rolo and they enjoy long walks along the beach at my Caravan on the Northumberland coastline." 

Ellen Herbert - BDM West Midlands and Welsh Borders

"I have thoroughly enjoyed spending many years working in the property industry. I started off working for a local agent many moons ago but took a break to have a family. I then decided to work for myself as an internet reseller, to work around my children. I missed the property world and I decided to return. I have since worked as a property valuer, as a buyer for an investment company and as a sales manager in auctions.  My passion in property lies with auctions, I love the swiftness of the sale and often seeing the properties come back to market, those that were bought as renovation projects."

Tina Waterfall - BDM East Midlands

"Everyone who knows me gets to hear everything about my passion, my partner, my daughter and Tadpole our Lurcher, together we are restoring a Grade II listed house which is a challenge to say the least, and totally rewarding, so our evenings and weekends housework is slightly more demanding than a clean & tidy up.

I've working in property auctions for over 10 years, first as auction manager in room auctions, including traveling from Lincolnshire for 18 months establishing a new London auction, and over 3 years promoting online auctions.

I have a passion for property, and love meeting people, seeing the rewards that auction offers both vendor and agent really does make your day, and no two days are the ever same."

Danny Bone - BDM East Yorkshire & Humber

"I have worked in Estate Agency for about 8 years at all different levels and most recently a Regional Sales Manager for an independent agent. With this agent I saw the massive benefits of auction from a business point of view and jumped straight on board to promote it further across our branches. I have an eye for a deal and always looking for an opportunity to generate business and look to help our Partner Agents increase their revenue through auction. Away from work, i love football and support Hull City and also enjoy playing many sports such as golf, tennis, badminton, squash and even enjoy a game of chess. I enjoy a good pint of ale and socialising with friends." 

Kashif Awan - BDM West London

"I am a multi-skilled property professional and have been involved in property since leaving University in 2007. My career thus far has allowed me to gain invaluable experience in managing various Estate Agent branches for both independent and corporate agency throughout London, in addition to having the opportunity to be involved in developing and laying the foundations for a cold-start agency in Berkshire . With over 14 years' experience in property, I am fuelled by my passion for all things property related and genuine client relationships. I joined Pattinson as a Business Development Manager for London more than three years ago and have not looked back since. I thoroughly enjoy developing new business relationships and working with our Partner Agents to ensuring we add value to individual businesses along with the agents we work with. 

In my spare time, I am a passionate Manchester United fan, a devoted family man and soon husband to be."

Beverley Roskell - BDM Liverpool, North Wales & Surrounding

"Having spent the majority of my career in the entertainment industry, it was refreshing to make a change into property.  Something I have always had an interest in. My time in Estate Agency was varied and diverse.  I managed a branch at a local independant company to then go on to become a valuer for a high end Global brand. This led to me challenge myself further in the direction of Auction. I joined Pattinson in 2017 and firmly believe auction is the best route to market for both the buyer and the seller giving speed, transparency and security for all parties."

Gulsun Shevket - BDM North East London & Essex

"I have been involved in property my entire life, helping with my family's rental portfolio in London from a very young age. After graduating from University with a Business and Marketing Management degree, I wanted to learn more about the property industry and managed to get a job as a Property Manager in the Block Management industry. 


I then worked for one of the largest Estate Agencies in London for a few years. I joined Pattinson Auction as a Business Development Manager in 2021 and haven't looked back ever since. I believe all my past experiences have led me to this role, and I love building relationships with all my agents. Every day is different, and once one of my agents exchanges, you can see all the hard work paying off."

Daniel Evans – BDM South West England

"I have worked in property for over eight years and have experience working for corporate and independent estate agents in the south-west, mainly for a company specialising in auction. I have been building Pattinson's business in the south-west for two years and have thoroughly enjoyed building valuable relationships with local agents in my favourite part of the country. Helping agents who realise auction provides their clients, and themselves with huge benefits is enjoyable.

Away from work, I am a rugby referee, travelling nationwide and occasionally abroad, fulfilling the dream of having the best seat in the house!"

Chris John – BDM South East London

"Having been in the property industry for over seven years, auction had always interested me, so joining Pattinson Auction was a no-brainer. Initially gaining experience working for one of Kent's biggest estate agents, my passion for the property industry then took me into a Business Development role still within the property industry, gaining valuable experience and a love for building relationships. 


Some of my passions outside of work include rugby and football, having played both since a young age and being a childhood Manchester United fan, closely followed by food and outdoor activities!"

Sharon Wiles – BDM & Key Account Manager

Sharon brings over 20 years of experience working within different areas of the UK property market. She started her career as a sales negotiator, quickly moving up to valuer and then to branch manager for a large corporate Agency, more recently setting up and running an independent agency from a cold start area. She is experienced in Land and New Homes as well as New Homes sales and management.

"Experienced in management of sales teams, growing market share, training, and development. Business development is one of my biggest passions; I love a challenge and am constantly stepping out of my comfort zone where I believe the biggest wins happen. My go-to motto is! 'What would we do if we knew we couldn't fail.'

I love the secure sale method; it eliminates the lengthy, dated conveyancing process and provides sellers and buyers with security and transparency when selling or purchasing what may be one of their most significant assets."

Carol Clipston - BDM North West

I joined the Pattinson Auction team in 2019 after spending 10 years working for a large national corporate estate agent. Prior to this I worked providing bridging finance for auction purchasers nationwide. My industry knowledge allows me to understand both the perspective and needs of our clients and helps me to develop fantastic relationships across the northwest. I love the pace and transparency of working within the auction sector and especially enjoy meeting likeminded property people. In my own time I enjoy going on new adventures and travelling to see new places with my family.


Paula Ferragamo - BDM London

"Having been in the property industry since 2006, there has been challenging markets, complicated property types and transactions that have all been things that I have had to overcome within my career.

I can understand from an agents perspective the daily struggles and objections that they may need to overcome and I am always on hand to assist the team, whether that be training new members or offering solutions to problems and advice on the secure sale method.

In my personal time, I have two children that keep me busy and entertained. I enjoy keeping myself healthy and active, I am currently training towards a Tough Mudder obstacle course in the summer. Although, I am partial to a fine red bottle of wine in the evenings."

Sarah Reeder BDM South Central

"Since I worked in Customer Services, Event Management, Telemarketing, and freelance personal training before having children, a career in the property industry has always been a dream of mine. A property developer father and a brother also influenced my love for property. 

I began working part-time for an estate agent on Saturdays and progressed quickly over time to become a Branch Manager of my own office. Having worked in sales and lettings for over ten years within many regions in the south of England, I was eager to take on a new challenge. My experience with Pattinsons and the benefits of using their platform in my own branch led me to want to be part of a growing business that is becoming a fundamental part of the process. 

My free time consists of spending time with my two wonderful daughters, one of whom is also in the industry, while the other fills my time with watching them perform at theatres across the country."

Ryan Power BDM

I have worked in the property industry since 2004, working for some of the UK's biggest estate agencies. In 2019 I passed Level 3 Propertymark, Award In The Sale Of Residential Property, which has certainly helped me develop my knowledge in the industry and best practise. I made the move into property auctions in 2019 and have seen a huge growth in the market in such a short time.

Outside of work, I'm married with two children and a dog which keeps me very busy, but otherwise I'm a bit of a movie buff, avid football man with the hopes of one day Millwall being in the Premier League and more recently golf.
