We've just completed a website for Stibbard Property who are a multi-disciplinary commercial property surveying practice based in Ramsbury, just outside Marlborough.

Stibbard Property covers the Newbury, Cirencester, Trowbridge triangle, especially Marlborough and Hungerford, and provides a number of services including commercial sales, lettings, valuations, management, rent reviews, business rates appeals and general commercial property consultancy.

Just before the launch of the Stibbard Property website, I caught up with Andrew Stibbard to find out more about the business and the man at the helm.

  • What did you want to be when you were young?
    • I had a few things I wanted to be, a fireman, a butcher, a soldier, but dealing with property was always there as well, I regret not joining the army.
  • What is the best piece of advice you’ve been given?
    • Don’t try to understand women, you aren’t meant to!
  • What is the biggest mistake you’ve made in business?
    • I wouldn’t say I’ve made any major mistakes, but I’ve lost a bit of money on shares that I should have invested in property.
  • What do you like most about your job?
    • The variety, no day is different, and variety is the spice of life, also I really like helping my clients, it’s nice when you can sit back at the end of the day and know you’ve made them wealthier and made their life easier as a result.
  • What do you like least?
    • People not turning up to viewings and clients that can’t make their mind up:;drives me round the bend!
  • Who is your business hero?:
    • I can’t say I’ve ever really thought about it, I don’t look up to businessmen, it’s possibly a bit tenuous but probably Margaret Thatcher.
  • What piece of advice would you give to someone new to business?
    • Look after the bottom line and the top line will look after itself.
  • What is your personal ambition for life?
    • Raise a clutch of healthy and happy children and have a marvellous time!
