Pippa originally lived in Oxfordshire and studied at Bournemouth University, graduating in 1999. Her career in property began in Lilliput where she worked for 6 years. Savills invited Pippa to join them in 2006 where she developed an increasingly loyal client base.

Pippa has demonstrated an impressive track record in property having worked in the area all of her career and has been heavily involved in negotiating a large number of high profile transactions. Pippa's friendly approach combined with her skill and sheer determination to match purchasers with the right property, is frequently attested to by the gratitude shown by many of the clients she has helped.
