Dave McCarroll

Dave has been in estate agency for over fifteen years now having started with a corporate company in Callington where he first met Paul. After 5 years it was time for a change and Dave moved on to a smaller, more family-oriented company as a property manager dealing with large companies and individual buyers alike. After a while he was approached by Paul, who had just purchased Kernow Properties, to come and work as a property manager for him instead. Dave has now been with Kernow Properties for five years and has enjoyed advancing the company to the local number one agency.

In his spare time Dave has many hobbies which include oil painting, acting, directing, and writing for a local theatre company. Dave also enjoys doing voiceovers and has appeared in many international advertising campaigns. His favourite pastime though, is simply relaxing and playing guitar.

Dave has an empathetic approach to estate agency and understands that he is dealing with what is, for most people, the most important transaction of their life.

Hi I’m Millie, I work part time and come to the office and work when needed.

My main role is PR, I look after staff morale, and welcome people to the office.

I tend to stay in the top office as I need to keep out of the way for the guys to work.

Also, this is where my ball lives, if you want to say hi when you come to the office that’s fine.

Or I can stay out of the way.

My hobbies are, going for walks, (I love my walks) and seeing my friends in the park. I just love my ball, throw it for me and I will be your best friend for ever.

Please come and say hi if I’m in when you pop into the office.
