In the first of a series of posts from our team about what home means to them, Camilla Molyneux, who heads up our Mayfair Lettings department, tells us how moving home frequently as she grew up has given her some useful skills to pass on to clients in her current role.
As a child we moved house a lot so I learnt from a young age to see a house only as bricks and mortar. With this is mind one of our family mantras was – and still is – ‘home is where the heart is’ and that it is family and friends that makes the home, not the structure of the house itself. This outlook has meant that I have grown up with a resourceful and pragmatic approach when working with new spaces and I am able to create a home quickly. Even now I still love the well versed process of packing and unpacking boxes and the exciting challenge of creating a new home. This has proven to be really useful in my role in Lettings, as I enjoy helping others to create a visual image of how a space can be used in the shorter term. It’s always extremely satisfying to be able to help somebody picture themselves moving happily into a new space and creating a happy environment in which to spend time.
