Miles Roberts

After a decade spent in retail management for a market leading brand in my hometown Sydney, I decided to follow my heart to London 14 years ago where my career in property sales began. With 2 years experience in the East London market of Bow and Mile End I found my calling in West Hampstead with a corporate firm and enjoyed 7 very productive years in a structured environment before taking on a management role in Camden Town. The lure of Abacus Estates and a return to West Hampstead proved too strong and I'm pleased to be back where I feel I belong. I pride myself in offering unrivalled service, delivering on sales targets and continuingly improving the image of the long suffering High Street agent. The village atmosphere of West Hampstead helped me forge a strong bond with both clients and applicants over the years and I very much look forward to continuing in the same vein. In our spare time my wife and I enjoy watching our 2 energetic sons play football as well as travelling, dining out and socialising with friends and family.

Romain Lenne

I originally come from Brittany, France. I moved to London 15 years ago and started working in the property industry where I have gained valuable experience in both the commercial and residential sectors including selling French properties to international clientele and finding office space for companies worldwide. Throughout those years I have gained an extensive knowledge of the property business that allows me to deliver great customer service to all my clients by listening, understanding and identifying their needs in order to find the property that is right for them. In my free time, I like going for walks, visiting the farmers’ market and enjoy both watching and playing football and basketball.

Emma Conway

I have been in residential estate agency for over 20 years and have worked previously in the West Hampstead area. Having done all aspects of property administration what I like the most is the buzz of the office when deals are done and making sure all relevant paper work is sent out on time. I am a real organiser and love to organise different and easier admin systems within the office to make all our work life much easier. I love dealing with people and am a real people person. The team as West Hampstead are amazing and lovely people to work with who also have the experience and expertise of the property industry. In my spare time I love socialising with my friends and have a very close family which consists of two sisters who I have very close with. We all live close by and are regularly at each other's houses. I love spending time with my nieces and nephews and am a regular fixture in their lives.
