John is one of the most respected agents in the area, having been in practice now for over 43 years. John was born in Godalming and attended King Edwards School in Witley before starting his career with local firm Messenger May & Baverstock in 1968. A three year spell for Savills Country House Department in Mayfair followed and then a return to his roots as head of the Country House Department of Cubitt & West in Guildford High Street in 1982. This is in turn became Prudential Property Services and in the recession in 1991, John set up Hill Clements with Jill Clements. The freehold of our Grade II* Listed Quarry Street building was subsequently bought and renovated in 1995 and remains a much admired and important part of Hill Clements. John lives in central Guildford with his wife and is guaranteed to be at his desk before sun rise!
Scott started his career in estate agency in 1982, straight from Godalming College, and had previously attended Lord Wandsworth College and enjoyed the same rugby coaching as Jonny Wilkinson, although without the same level of success! Scott joined John and Jill at the Country House Department of Cubitt & West in 1984, before managing Weller Eggar in Cranleigh for five years. Returning to Guildford to become a partner for Burns & Webber for nine years reignited Scott’s love for the Guildford property market and he re-joined John in 2003 as his new business partner on Jill’s retirement. Scott has now been forced to retire from club rugby after 26 years of accumulated injuries, so regularly takes out his aggression in his car on track days and has recently taken up shooting. Scott is a licensed NAEA agent and lives in Shalford with his wife, three daughters, and two Labradors.
Richard also started his agency career at a young age, pulling on his finest Burton suit to begin work at Mann & Co in 1996, before joining Curchods in Ottershaw and then transferring to their Guildford office. After two years he then moved across town to Savills, before joining Hill Clements in 2009. Richard also lives in central Guildford and revels in his ability to beat the traffic by walking to work every day. Richard has an excellent rapport with solicitors and has an expertise, second to none, in managing transactions through to a satisfactory conclusion.
Angela joined us in 2004, having previously worked for Clarke Gammon Wellers and before that, Bridgers, who became Hamptons, in East Horsley. With her many years of experience in Estate Agency, Angela has a calming effect on the office with her sensible and considered approach to all aspects of the job. Having been an East Horsley resident for many years, Angela is a member of the local tennis club where she regularly enjoys a Friday evening game of tennis, after a hard few days at the office.
Carol has also been with us since 2004 and has a firm hold on the office. Carol performs all the office duties with a minimum of fuss and keeps the rest of us firmly under control. Married with a daughter and a son, both now in their twenties, Carol lives with her husband in Wonersh Park. The office in Quarry Street is ideally situated for her, being within a short hobble of Field of Fitness, where most of Carol's time outside office hours is spent, trying to remove the effects of the results of the fine wine and dining that she so enjoys.
