Alex was born in Woking; though after completing a degree in Property Planning & Development at Kingston University in 2009, moved to London in order to begin working in the commercial property sector with Pearce & Co. After qualifying as a Member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors in 2012 Alex moved to Sydney to join Cushman Wakefield; working on several key contracts including the management of 200 sites for the National Australia Bank, as well as a portfolio of 100 properties for Government Property New South Wales.

As well as being an avid Fulham and Woking FC supporter, Alex is a keen traveller and enjoys a good historical read (preferably on a beach with drink in hand).
George grew up in Essex and attended school in Cambridge before relocating to Toronto, Canada for his undergraduate degree in History and Politics. Following his return to the UK he quickly fell in love with property while handling residential property sales in Wimbledon Village. He chose to join Owen Shipp in December 2014 in a primarily agency based role while studying part time for his MSc in Real Estate at the University of Kingston. He is currently the Chairman of the RICS Surrey Matrics committee, organising social and CPD events for young professionals, while working towards becoming a Chartered Surveyor.
In his free time George enjoys watching Rugby and American Football, as well as reading good fiction and exploring new countries.

She is responsible for the day to day running of the office, fielding general telephone enquiries and making sure Alex and George behave.
