The Team

Meet the team

  • Jon

    Jon has extensive property and business knowledge and is renowned for never letting the grass grow under his feet (which for a farmer is mighty unusual). Driven by an insatiable appetite for future opportunities, he concentrates on pushing all aspects of the business forward. He lives on his farm in Shirwell with his wife Jo and two daughters. Competing regularly in various events, he's somewhat sports mad. As for his cycling enthusiasm, that's certifiably insane.

  • Claire

    Claire has more years experience in property management and residential lettings than she cares to admit. Initially setting up Town & Country Property Letting with Jon in 2002 before taking over Wright Residential Lettings in 2005 to become The Wright Property. She is an experienced negotiator with expertise in all areas of residential lettings and management. Claire handles rental valuations and instructions but also spends a vast majority of her time carrying out periodic property visits. Her pursuit for pleasure is endless and her real true loves are Miffy (cat) and Stouty (Horse) - photos available on request.

  • Tim

    Tim passed his quarter century in Estate Agency in 2013 having witnessed and worked through two bubbles and their subsequent bursts. He is the Commercial and Residential Sales Director and lives in Barnstaple with his wife Helen. A keen supporter and sponsor of Barnstaple Rugby Football Club, other interests include field sports, skiing and socialising. His favourite saying is, “there are no new ideas – just good old ones”. But then he would, wouldn’t he?

  • Tanya

    Tanya joined the company back in 1999 as Letting Negotiator working her way through to Office Manager. She is very much a part of the furniture. During this time she obtained her MARLA whilst gaining a comprehensive knowledge of the property market. She is known not only for her diplomacy in stressful situations but also her large appetite for biscuits and cake! Nowadays, she divides her time between the lettings and residential sales departments. A local girl with two young children, in her spare time she enjoys training at the gym (to work off the biscuits and cake), supporting local live music and of course, spending time with her family and friends.

  • Miles

    A staff member for almost a decade (with eighteen months off for good behaviour), Miles is as much part of The Wright Property as the bins out the back and almost every bit as useful. Property Negotiator and sentence-spinner for all things company related, Miles spends his time off filing copy for magazines on grown-up subjects such as comic books and horror movies. He is nearly forty years old. Miles has two young children, a forgiving wife, and great hair.

  • Adam

    Adam has been with The Wright Property since 2009 and is the senior Sales and Lettings Negotiator and is currently studying for his Level 3 NAEA qualification in Residential Sales, for which he is promising to work harder than he did for his Degree! After several years studying and working in Scotland, Adam returned to his native North Devon and now counts travel and food amongst his favourite pastimes.

  • Dan

    Daniel has been with the company since Nov 2006. Since that time he has only made around four cups of tea for the office. He considers this a personal triumph. He is the Accounts Manager and deals with everything financial. Daniel is a licensed ARLA agent after passing the exam in June 2007. Born and bred in Barnstaple, he is married and has two daughters. Interests include running and supporting Arsenal FC (someone has to).

  • Jess

    Jess is Property Administrator. She deals with letting and sales enquiries, maintenance issues and legal compliance. A cat-lover, Jess lives near Bideford, likes to shop, and enjoys watching reality shows that baffle her older colleagues.
