Steve Roulstone founded the Company in 2000 as part of the Castle Estates Franchise organisation from the offices of an Estate Agent in Mill Street in Stafford. Jenny Roulstone joined in 2002 just as the current base in Marston Road was being established. Both Directors are qualified Letting Agents with ARLA the Association of Residential Letting Agents. Day to day, both Jenny and Steve concentrate their experience working with our Landlords and remain as the first visable face of the Company.
We are very proud to confirm that our current team have now been with us for a combined period of nearly 30 years. Joining us as the Company has grown and staying with us (except for either retirement or in one case, leaving to raise a family). Amanda Tripp, our Lettings Manager has been with us for over twelve years and works alongside Craig Smith (who has been with us for over eight years) They are both qualified Letting Agents with ARLA. Craig is currently passing ARLA qualifications for legal expertise. Suzie Johnston joined us in 2009 and is now a fully qualified Letting Agent. Rod Leach conducts our property visits. He is fast becoming the visible face of Castle Estates for all of our Tenants once they have moved in.
Ian James has now been with us since 2009, having taken over from his Mother when she retired running our finances. Ian holds a degree in Business Accounting and continues to take industry qualifications (CIMA) as he progresses in experience. In his position he oversees both the Lettings finance needs and the Property Management Services accounts. He was joined in 2014 by Ted Martin, who has recently passed his Level three AAT.
