MICAWBER LETTINGS - Key Persons
Ella-Grace is our Saturday assistant, helping with our admin and manning the phone whilst supporting Jessy, Vicki, Josh and Sam as they each work a Saturday. During the week she studies at college having completed her GCSEs with amazing results.
Jessy joined our team in 2014 as our apprentice 'with a difference'. We were very lucky to find her. Jessy's life experience combined with her long background in retail makes her an excellent communicator, vital when it comes to maintaining good relationships with landlords, tenants and the tradespeople that we use on a daily basis. It was no suprise to us that Jessy sailed through her apprenticeship and has gone on to play a key role in the company over recent years and is now 'office manager'. Highly motivated and always reliable, Jessy has built up extensive knowledge of the lettings business, supporting clients from the very first enquiry to the signing of a tenancy agreement.
Jessy is currently a Littlehampton resident and loves living and working in West Sussex. After a busy day at the office she likes to wind down with a colouring-in book or a blast of Take That!
Born and bred in Worthing, Josh studied business, media and finance at college before joining us as a trainee in the summer of 2019. Having previously worked in a face-to-face customer service role, Josh has fitted in brilliantly with the team and is proving himeself on a daily basis that he has what it takes to become a successful letting agent. Josh carries out viewings, deals with telephone and email enquiries and supports us across many aspects of the business. If he can't answer your question, rest assured he'll pass you on to someone who can!
In his spare time Josh loves TV comedy (especially Peep Show) and socialising with friends in and around Worthing.
As Founder and Director of Micawber Lettings, Julie takes care of the day-to-day management of the business. She holds the NFOPP Technical Award in Residential Lettings and Property Management, and regularly attends professional training workshops to ensure the business is fully up to date with current legislation and industry best practice. Once a secondary school languages teacher, Julie is fluent in French and Italian, making her a fantastic contact for properties in France or Italy. Julie prides herself on her personal approach; as a former tenant and now a Worthing homesowner and private landlord herself, she has a comprehensive understanding of her clients' needs from every perspective, always endeavouring to go the extra mile.
In her spare time, Julie enjoys netball, running, fashion and watching her son and daughter play in their local junior football teams. She is also the owner of five (escape artist) pet ferrets!

With 12 years' experience in the property industry, along with several years' legal experience covering litigation and conveyancing, Vicki brings a wealth of knowledge to our business. She joined Micawber Lettings in 2018 and has been a great assett to us ever since.
