Lettings Director

I started my career in marketing before moving into estate agency. I now have more than 15 years’ experience in the profession. I live in Bourne End with my husband and two dogs. I’m a keen squash player and I run the ladies’ league for the county, so my time is divided between long walks with the dogs, playing and organising squash matches and cheering on my favourite football team, Arsenal.

Simon Minter

Simon Minter, MNAEA BSc (Hons)

Sales Director

I have been an estate agent since leaving university 30 years ago. In that time, I’ve been involved in every aspect of sales and lettings, from new land acquisition to high end sales. Before joining Tim Russ & Company in 2013, I ran an estate agency office in South Buckinghamshire for ten years, although I have strong family connections in Princes Risborough with my father living just a stroll from the office, so it’s good to be working in this area. I live in Marlow with my wife and two teenage daughters. I enjoy following most sports and music and, when time allows, I enjoy playing the guitar.

Born in Sydney, Australia, I travelled to the UK, rucksack on my back, after exploring much of Europe.
