Simon Minter, MNAEA BSc (Hons)

Branch Manager

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.

Daniel Hillyard

Senior Sales Negotiator

Born and raised in Amersham, I have lived and worked in this area all my life. I’ve been an estate agent for more than 16 years and started working for Tim Russ & Company in 2002, moving to the Princes Risborough branch in 2007. I enjoy being part such a committed and successful team. I have a keen interest in sport, especially rugby, and I attend Wasps games regularly. I also enjoy socialising with family and friends and taking part in challenges for charity, including a skydive and I’ve done the London to Brighton cycle ride several times.

Cathy Groves

Senior Negotiator

I started my career in estate agency by accident – I was a Mum, I needed some extra money, so I worked weekends in an estate agency. I loved the business and really enjoyed the job. I helped out more and more and very soon I was offered a full time job. At that time my children were at full time school. I have worked locally both in Aylesbury and Thame rising through the ranks as a negotiator to be a branch manager. I decided upon a change in direction and came to work in Princes Risborough for Tim Russ. When I am not sat behind the desk, my interests are studying yoga, I very much like photography and cooking is a huge passion, but my biggest pleasure is spending quality time with my children.
