As house prices increase across Newport and south east Wales, and with buyer demand at an all-time high, Smooth Moves Property Agents has been able to sustain strong growth and progress its expansion plans.

Experienced property expert Diane Jenkins has joined the company, which is celebrating its 12th anniversary, in the role of business development manager and will be responsible for developing the client base for both their sales and lettings departments.

Diane is excited to take on the new challenge, and with 18 years’ experience in the industry working for another local estate and letting agency, she has all the skills, experience, and motivation to fulfil the needs of the business.

Diane will be working alongside company director Alison Jarman.

Alison said: “Both the sales and letting sectors in our industry are considerably more competitive than ever before, with more agencies setting up in both traditional and online formats of their business, we have managed to sustain and increase our market share, with the goal to continue such growth through the appointment of Diane, with her reputation and experience becoming a key aspect of our growth strategy.”

Diana said: “The opportunity to work for a company such as Smooth Moves was too good to turn down.

“The housing market in Newport and the surrounding areas continues to remain very active, with an influx of buyers seeking to relocate to the city to benefit from the more affordable housing prices when compared to Cardiff and Bristol, we are able to act quickly and proactively on behalf of our landlords, sellers, and those wishing to view properties we are marketing.”
