Andrew Duncan has been invested in Estate agency since 1984, starting his career with JB&B Leach in 1998 where he has firmly carved himself an enviable role in the area and regarded most highly by his peers. A Wigan chap, now residing in beautiful Whalley where he is the father to two wonderful boys, what Andrew doesn’t know about agency could be written on the back of a postage stamp. A natural leader, who motivates his team without pressure, he is also a very generous boss ( He knows how to reward us). Playing squash in his spare time ( and rather good at it) he also enjoys rugby ( though only spectates!) loves fine dining, a good glass of Sauvignon and is very particular with great attention to details ( he has a spotless house!) On a personal note, he is the chair of the Cheshire and North Wales region for relocation agent network and has also appeared on “Homes under the hammer” and attends the meetings with the Bank of England.
Gary Brash is the money man, award winning mortgage broker and managing director who cuts a dash in his smart attire ( he worked in NEXT as a young man!). Upbeat, motivational and rather charming, he has been with Leaches since 1998 and is very well liked and respected by his team and clients alike. Married to Elaine with two beautiful daughters, Gary is a very genuine individual who always has his door open for staff and likes to know what we are all up to on a personal note as well as the all-important business. Caring and courteous with a real passion and drive and a keen golfer, he also loves a chat and is known for his games at the full branch meeting to get things going, although he is the boss he’s respected for all the right reasons.
Katherine is our office chief! KC as she is fondly referred to by her team started her property journey at the tender age of just 17 with the company and has enjoyed a successful property career ( now MNAEA) spanning almost 11 years now. Kath bought her first home (through us of course) in 2015 and is a local lady, loves dogs and her upbringing in Eccleston affords her valuable knowledge. She is the calm one amongst us, a team player - doesn't do problems and keeps us all motivated and happy ( she also likes the odd martini !)
Danielle, our Sales Manager has enjoyed a longstanding 21 year career in agency - much of which has been with leaches, which she is very proud of. Mum of 3 children, Danielle is passionate about property andhomestaging, is a little bit bossy, admires Kirsty Allsop and loves talking. Website and marketing are also key areas of her role. Always happy to do that little bit more for her clients, she's also a lover of gin, cake, national trust and her rabbit Barnaby. Danielle looks after the social media company profile, never short of things to say ( property being one of her most favourite subjects) feel free to pop over to twitter @jbbleach or @propertypassion for a chat or visit the company Facebook page.
Nicky (our ginger corn) joined the wonderful world of agency in 2006 and us in 2016, within days we felt she had been with us forever as she slotted into the team brilliantly managing our established lettings department. Sunny disposition guaranteed and the maker of a fab cup of tea, she also runs in her spare time... very fast and often for charity, she’s our office warrior. Wealth of knowledge is a given and currently working towards her ARLA qualification, she is extremely particular with the role with exacting standards, great with tenants ( feisty red head when she needs to be) and never leaves our landlords short of attention with her exemplary customer care. Nicky is happily married and became a 1st time mummy in the summer of 2017 and we love having her around making us giggle.
Judy was a welcome addition to our team having 30 years’ experience in the service industry bringing with her an invaluable calm influence. Judy is very organised, methodical and likes everything done correctly and always have a stash of pens in her drawer. Tenant and landlords appreciate her approach and she often does just that little bit more to ensure clients receive an exceptional experience. Judy is a proud mum to her daughter who is 22 and now at university. Judy loves dogs, caravan life and the beach, she is a very likeable lady with a lovely manner and is also a clever knitter specialising in bunting! Quite a list of talents!
