My name is Joe Wheeler, Director of " The Poets Agent".
I live locally with my wife Debbie and my 2 children Josh and Grace, who both go to West Hove School www.westhoveinfantschool.co.uk, I love living in such vibrant area with great people and a real sense of community, it is a wonderful place to live. Sea one way, Downs the other and everything on your doorstep. Poets Corner has some of the best pubs in the area, which are very family friendly, " The Ancient Mariner, The Stoneham, The Westbourne and The Poets Corner", to name a few www.drinkinbrighton.co.uk
Many a day I have thought why isn’t there an estate agency that is located within Poets Corner, that just specialise in Poets Corner properties and its surrounding areas. I already have an estate agency doing that very thing in central Hanover, Brighton www.wheelersestateagents.co.uk . It is a very similar area, mainly terraced houses with a real sense of community. Wheelers has worked so well since I opened it in 2001 and continues to do well. I knew I wanted an office in Hove and had been looking for a decent site for a few years, I knew the office had to be on a corner and opposite a pub. The perfect site arose opposite the Ancient Mariner pub and I knew it was time to open “ The Poets Agent”. Myself and Gordon White will be running The Poets Agent and I will continue to run Wheelers as well dividing my time between both.
My name is Gordon. I grew up in the area and attended West Hove School back in the 70’s and onto Hove Park School after that. My first part time job was at the old bingo hall when it was known as Lion Leisure and was there 3 years, I may have even run one of your winning tickets down to the front for checking or served your drinks.
I lived in Poets Corner for many years with my wife Kim, three of the sons, Charlie cat, Molly the guinea pig and Rambo the tortoise and have seen the areas popularity grow and grow.
Hobbies include music and playing Golf badly.
I have been in Estate Agency for almost 20 years and set up GK Whites Estate Agents, www.gkwhites.co.uk in 2001. This company has over 35 years of combined Letting experience to help ensure our clients and their properties are well looked after. I have also passed the Technical Award for Residential Lettings and Property Management and am delighted to be able to work for the residents of West Hove.
