A personal approach to property.
People: Property is a people business. And the exceptional quality of our service stems from the people who manage our sales and lettings – some of whom are profiled below. It’s all about what they know, how they negotiate, and how they handle prospective purchasers and tenants.
Professionalism: You can also be confident that every one of our team is highly trained and qualified – while the company itself is a member of all the relevant industry bodies, protecting your interests and demonstrating our professional credentials.
Promotion: Selling or letting your property quickly and at the very best price means maximising the number of people who see it – and presenting it in the very best possible way. In today’s competitive marketplace, that demands first class photography, video on-line tours, powerful signage and branding, and a great online presence. All of which come as standard with Red Key.
Persistence: Great marketing alone does not sell or let a property. Closing the deal requires persistence and diligence – making sure that every lead generated is properly and painstakingly followed up, and then actively pursuing a sale from the point when an offer is accepted until it’s completed. Moreover, we’ll communicate with you throughout the whole process – keeping you in control and reducing your stress levels!
Systems: Equally, if you are a landlord you’ll want the reassurance that your property is being let for the maximum amount of time, being cared for properly and managed efficiently. Our database of prospective, pre-vetted tenants minimise voids, while our operations systems ensure that we keep totally on top of maintenance and repairs through regular visits.
It all adds up to… client value: Look around and you can find cheaper ways to sell or let your property. But cheapness can come at a cost, in terms of lower sale prices or rentals achieved, missed opportunities, poor management or you ending up doing the agent’s work for them. The proven results we deliver for our clients make us, we believe, the best value in our marketplace.

I have been the Manger for the Red Key Newport Branch for the last 13 months, obtaining an NFoPP ARLA qualification during this time. Previous to this I managed a team of people looking after approximately 2 thousand properties all over the UK. I have a genuine passion for lettings from helping an applicant find their perfect home to the end of their tenancy ensuring a smooth move out for both the tenant and landlord. With over 7 years’ experience in the industry, I am competent with the legislations surrounding lettings, I always aim to give the best possible service and strive on ensuring Red Key and the team achieve.
As well as Lettings, I also Manage the Sales team, ensuring a smooth transaction from viewings to completion and ensuring that we look after our Vendors and Buyers.
When I am not managing a busy office, I enjoy spending quality time with my children (who keep me equally as busy); going to the cinema, eating out and long walks with our pet pug Winston.
I have worked for Red Key for the past 13 months as the Lettings Negotiator. Before this role, I worked in retail for 11 years so my love of dealing with customers continues. My role is very busy; I’m always in and out of the office, conducting viewings, arranging appointments and going above and beyond to find the best buyers and tenants for our vendors and landlords. Out of work I enjoy keeping active, socialising and cooking.
I have been working for Red Key for the past 3 years. During this time, I have completed an NVQ customer services course while focusing on delivering an exceptional service to our clients. My main tasks include tenancy agreement renewals, property maintenance, applicant references and property compliance certificates. Out of work I enjoy eating out and spending quality time with my family.
Property Management Administrator
I have been working for Red Key for the past few months. My main tasks include dealing with deposit returns and management of current tenancies. In my spare time I love spending time with my son, family and friends. I enjoy travelling to new countries, tasting new foods and experiencing different cultures.
As well as being Jamie's wife, Sally ensures that landlords and contractors are paid on time and that all clients' monies are dealt with efficiently and correctly.
Away from work Sally has a keen interest in History and Art and can often be found with a paintbrush or in a museum - of course, that is, when she is not looking after the children!
I’ve worked as a Property Inspector for Red Key for 18 months. My role in the company starts and ends with each tenancy. Before the tenant moves in I carry out a detailed Inventory and during the tenancy they have regular inspections. At the end of the tenancy I do a detailed Check out. I love my role as I know the reports I produce are for the protection of the tenants and landlords.
In my private life I enjoy travelling, eating out with friends and family.
I currently work part-time at Redkey as I have just finished my A Levels and due to start University. My role at Redkey is admin, answering the phone, helping with queries and dealing with any customers that come into the office.
Here at Red Key, our property portfolio is continually expanding, and we are always looking for people with the right attitude to join our team.
You’ll need to be a dedicated, personable team player, committed to our principles of customer service and always willing to go the extra mile.
In return, we look after our people – paying them competitively, as well as providing on-going training and mentoring to develop their skills. That makes Red Key a great place to begin a career in property as well as an excellent setting to take your current career to new heights.
