We caught up with our Penarth team to talk about living and working in the heart of this booming seaside town.  

Belinda – Branch Manager 

A brief look at Belinda’s CV shows she knows the industry inside out and she is not afraid to spread her wings.

“I started my estate agency career back in 2001, in Spain selling off plan properties” she said.  “I then went into the resale market and I became the Rural Specialist for the Spanish company before returning to live in Cardiff.” 

“I got a job in the property market as a Sales Negotiator and through a year of positive results I quickly worked my way up to Manager in the Bristol office.”   

Several years and various roles across South Wales later, Belinda joined pa black during March 2021.

“I feel like I’ve come home working in Penarth full time.  I’m from Sully and went to Stanwell Comprehensive School in Penarth, my Dad set up the family business, Motts Insurance, here which is now run by my brother, so in many ways I feel very connected to the area.”  

 “Penarth is a lovely area, very sought after and highly thought of with lots of amenities on your doorstep.”

When not helping people find their perfect home, Nan of three Belinda enjoys an active lifestyle.

“I love walking with my Husky cross Malamute and we are actually currently looking to adopt another dog.  I enjoy spending time outdoors and I’ve also got another more unusual passion - my husband and I are both scuba divers! We originally learnt to dive in Spain in 2002 and have been very fortunate to have visited many countries which are amazing for diving.  We’ve been to The Maldives, Philippines, Cuba, Mexico and Egypt. Egypt and The Maldives are my favourite destinations.”

Marcus – Mortgage Services Consultant 

Mortgage Services Consultant Marcus, has plenty of experience having worked in the industry since starting with an Insurance Intermediary 20 years ago.  

 “I love Penarth, I grew up in the area and now I’m bringing up my own young family here too.”

“If I could live anywhere it would have to be right in the town centre of Penarth, there is fantastic access to public transport and convenient shopping, along with a busy night time economy.” 

Family man Marcus loves spending time with his daughter on his days off, walking around Cosmeston Lake and spotting the local wildlife.   When time allows he also enjoys a good book or a trip to the cinema.  

“I truly believe that our combination of the professionalism that comes with being part of a big company, combined with the personal touch of a local agent, we provide the best customer service available in the area.”

James – Sales Negotiator 

After managing hospitality businesses for thirteen years, most recently The Vale of Glamorgan Brewery, James felt it was time to pursue a long standing ambition of his in estate agency and so joined the Peter Alan team.

“Having been brought up in Penarth, attending St. Cyres Comprehensive, I simply couldn’t pass up the opportunity to work for Peter Alan in Penarth.”“I pride myself on being a great communicator and listener. After spending 18 years in Penarth, I have a great knowledge of the area. I believe I have a great work ethic and always work with the highest integrity. Hopefully all of these skills enables me to be a great negotiator in Penarth.”

“I was extremely lucky to grow up in ‘the-flat-roofed’ house in St. Cyres Rd and would love to go back there one day. The garden was HUGE and had many a great party!”

Cardiff Devils fan and keen traveller James knows how to make the most of his days off. 

“I love to surf, I tend to go to The Gower and Porthcawl and when I can, I also enjoy snowboarding in the Alps.  An ideal weekend would be visiting country pubs, tasting the local beers and long walks with the dogs & family.  One of my favourite local walks would have to be along Penarth Pier… you can’t beat eating chips and ice cream overlooking the channel!”

“At Peter Alan Penarth we do everything we can for our customers – Buying a home should be an enjoyable experience and I aim to make it one for everyone that walks through our doors!”

Finn – Sales Negotiator 

Finn recently started with Peter Alan and his professionalism, kindness and focus on customer care, helps buyers and sellers get the results they want. 

“I live locally but if I could pick anywhere I would love to live at The Twyncyn, Dinas Powys. They are beautiful houses with great views and large plots of land”

When not in the office Finn enjoys spending time with his dogs, girlfriend and family.

“One of my favourite places to go in the area is “The Salmon Leaps”, you can about 2.5 hours just walking along in muddy woods alongside a lovely river”

Nicola – Sales Negotiator 

Sales Negotiator Nicola has excellent communication skills and she has a passion for building strong relationships with her clients to help them find their ideal home.

“Penarth is a great town, with so much to do.  My dream would be to live at the Pier or the Marina, I’d love to be close to the water.”

Arsenal supporter Nicola loves to spend her spare time with the family, cooking and relaxing with a glass or two of red wine.
