Double decade for key figure at Sharman Quinney

One of Sharman Quinney’s most experienced managers is celebrating a significant milestone this year, having brought fantastic success to company branches across Peterborough and Cambridgeshire for the past two decades.

Russell Quinney, who started at the award-winning agent’s original office on Broadway in 1993, has been an influential figure during his time with the company and has worked in management roles for the last eighteen years in Ramsey, Market Deeping, Orton, Huntingdon and Peterborough, where he is based today.

Russell is widely credited with helping relocate the Peterborough service, Sharman Quinney’s main city hub, from Broadway to its current base on Newark Avenue in October last year. The move has proved significant for the estate agent, allowing its staff to provide a full residential sales service on the doorstep of the thriving Peterborough property market.

On reaching twenty years, Russell says: “I am thrilled to have spent such an amount of time at Sharman Quinney, a fantastic company with an ethos of promoting from within. I have worked in many challenging property markets across the region over the years, but we have always come out fighting to consistently achieve brilliant results year on year.”

Russell continues: “Key to Sharman Quinney’s success over the years has been our vast local knowledge and expertise of the property markets in which our 17 branches operate, and our move from Broadway to Newark Avenue in Peterborough has been a tremendous success. We are experiencing an upturn in activity at the office this spring as customers return to the market in force, and we are catering to the needs of this seasonal surge by helping a wide range of buyers achieve results in the area.”
