Background and industry experienceJo joined Fisher German in the summer of 2019 as Regional New Homes Manager to create a stronger Fisher German presence and greater market share in the New Homes sector of the Residential Market. One of her main tasks is to establish and build close liaisons with new and existing developer clients, primarily to secure new homes sales instructions and manage, from start to finish, the sales of new homes across the region.
Jo has been in the industry for 30 years and for the last 10 of those dealing exclusively with new homes, working for both agency and developers alike. She has sold and managed everything from studio bed sits to a £6.5m chapel conversion and developments from two dwellings to 490. She has a calm and personable approach loves to be kept busy.
Having lived in the Cotswolds for most of her life, Jo spends her time outside of work following her love of the countryside and equestrian sports. She has two grown up children and lives in Oxfordshire with the lurcher, Hector.
What year did you start your job?
What has been your favourite project and why?
My favourite project was the development of six barns, four new builds and two conversions. It was in an area I knew and loved, having lived across the fields and watched the farm buildings fall into disrepair. I worked with the developer from his purchase of the site, sat in on architectural meetings, interior design, and worked closely with the contractors.
My favourite pastime is watching equestrian sports. I used to ride but find I don’t bounce so well these days! My daughter events and show jumps and when I’m not working I enjoy travelling around the country following her. She may be grown up but she still likes me to wash her competition clothes! In the past I have also spent time fence judging at various local one day events.
One item to take to a desert island?
I would take my dog Hector. Not only for the company but he’s also brilliant at catching things.
Who would you like to be stranded in a lift with?
I guess a fireman might be a useful person to have around! However, I’m assuming you mean someone of interest, so I would say I would love to be stuck with the Irish singer, Van Morrison. His music fascinates me and I would like to ask what inspires his lyrics.
What’s your favourite film of all time?
Jordan in the Middle East. I was lucky enough to spend many school holidays there whilst growing up as my father worked there. The history of the country is fascinating, the mix of cultures makes it a wonderful place to be.
