Established as an Estate agents in 1974 by Brian Marshall, the company has grown to include both sales and full management for rental properties across Brighton & Hove, Seaford, Newhaven and Peacehaven.
A family business, Brian’s sons Nick and Bob have over 30 years of experience and their knowledge of the local area and its rental markets gives our landlords piece of mind that their investments are in safe hands.
At Brian Marshall & Sons we pride ourselves on providing a friendly, professional and personal service with a wealth of experience, local knowledge and commitment. We will always be there to answer your questions and give advice whenever you need us!
Although Brian has long been enjoying his retirement he is still very much an important part of who Brian Marshall & Sons are. Having been established since 1974 we have always taken an interest in the local community and use local tradesmen and companies wherever possible when maintaining properties. Brian began this way in 1974 and we intend to continue!
Nick has been running our office in Peacehaven since 1980 and now has over 30 years’ experience in the business. With an amazing capacity to somehow know every single tenant, landlord and customer that’s ever come through our doors, Nicks dedication to the company has been integral to who we are today. We pride ourselves with the fact that we are now meeting people whose parents originally came to Nick as customers!
Better known as ‘Bob the builder’, Bob also takes care of maintenance and is able to give advice on any aspect of building or property maintenance. Although he’s more often found in his van than here in the office (or perhaps squeezing in a quick bit of fishing), he is still a vital part of our team and we count on him to keep all our properties in excellent condition!
Nicks daughter Emma has worked for the business on and off for 15 years, since she was 16. Having had breaks to try different things, and also become a mum, she is now working at the company full time with a view to follow in her dads footsteps. Although there is a lot to learn, Emma has grown up in the area and working alongside her dad so she is looking forward to carrying on the family business for years to come.
Penny has worked for Nick for as long as we can remember, and we wouldn’t know what to do without her! Frequently thought of as ‘the face of the office’, Penny knows all our landlords and tenants well, and provides us with an invaluable service keeping the office going! She makes a mean cup of tea and is part of the family!
Sheila originally worked for Nick in the 80′s and 90′s until going off to run her own business and returning some years later. She now works for us on a part time/casual basis. Having grown up in the area, Sheila adds to our vast local knowledge and is a long valued member of the Brian Marshall family.
Becky joined us early in 2016 while Emma was off on maternity leave and we couldn’t be happier! The stars aligned when we found Becky as she had only just moved to the area after a big life change for her. Having over 10 years experience in customer service, Becky was having a fresh start and it just so happened we were looking for someone exactly like her. Fitting in with our small team with a personable smiley face, Becky is here to stay!
The local boys!
Everyone knows that unfortunately properties don’t take care of themselves, but we are proud to have an extended family of reliable and knowledgeable tradesmen to assist us whenever a problem arises, be it day or night. Having built up such great relationships with these guys we can pass their competitive rates and excellent tradesman ship over to our clients!
