Ami Hayward – Director Sales/Lettings

Early in my career, I joined a company in North London as a Senior Sales & Letting Negotiator, and was rewarded with the role of Office Manager after 6 months. A few years on, I had reached my full potential within this company, just at the time I was given the opportunity to set up my own Lettings business within an already existing Estate Agency. After having four beautiful children & taking a bit of a back-seat for a few years I decided I wanted to own my business, run it my own way. My main aim in my new business is to redefine how Estate Agency is perceived I can be free to stop the hard sell attitude of people that I hand pick to work for Abel. We are here to serve the local community when they need to move in or around this wonderful historic town. I am genuinely excited to have Abel of Hertford and for the changes it brings to this industry. I want to make it a company that my kids are proud of!

I have both enjoyed and embraced the rewarding challenge of managing a growing Lettings and Property Management Team for over 10 years in Essex and Hertfordshire. Throughout my time as Lettings and Property Manager I have learned the key to a successful relationship between Estate Agent, Landlord and Tenant: mutual respect and communication. I have worked hard to improve the reputation of Estate Agents for our area, and this effort is reflected in our team winning Gold at the Estate Agent of the Year Awards 2018 for Lettings (as voted by tenants) in the South East (Essex and Kent). To receive such as a prestigious award is testament to the ability and dedication of our team.

I have enjoyed developing myself as a well-respected Estate Agent following almost 30 years of experience gained working for both corporate and independent estate agencies in and around Essex and Hertfordshire. I learned from experience exactly what ensures a successful transaction and remain committed to offering a fair and polished service. Historically, agents have earned themselves a poor reputation therefore I have, in turn worked with persistent tenacity to maintain a level of professionalism that has proven to achieve successful results again and again. I remain committed to restoring the faith and improving the reputation of estate agents.

Coming from a family of estate agents, I have always had a passion for the property market. I have been in the real estate industry since 2010 where I started my career in Wanstead. After learning the business, I decided to move abroad to Dubai at the age of 20, where I enjoyed just over 2 years in the same industry which was an amazing life experience. Other than my stint in Dubai, I have always lived in Broxbourne but I love Hertford and that’s why it was an easy choice where I wanted to work. I am very pleased to be a part of the team at Abel Of Hertford and I look forward to progressing my career here.

I started my lettings adventure in June 2014 with a large sized corporate agent and have not looked back since. Starting out as a trainee Negotiator I was unsure of how I would take to estate agency, however I have loved every part of the property industry. Following a successful period it was clear that I had chosen the right career path to follow. Having seen the Corporate side of the lettings industry, I was keen to see how independent companies worked. Having heard the buzz around Hertford about a brand new agent opening right in the town centre, I knew this was where I wanted to be and further my knowledge of the lettings industry.

I left school in 2011 and knew that Property was the market that held my interest. I had been working as a Saturday girl in a local estate agent’s with the ambition to pursue this as a full time role when I had the opportunity. I embarked on an NVQ Lettings & Property Management course whilst securing a full time junior position and was delighted to graduate shortly after. My confidence has grown naturally over the years in agency and I still look forward to walking into the office every morning to continue to develop my relationships with both tenants and vendors.

I have been in Estate Agency for 37 years, starting off as a sale negotiator and within 18 months was promoted to branch manager of the company I served for over 10 years. After this venture, I decided to run my own company in Walthamstow and successfully ran 14 branches over the East & North of London. I eventually retired in 2015, however didn’t last long as being inactive wasn’t for me. I joined Abel of Hertford to be their sales progressor, chasing the sales and ensuring they run smoothly. I enjoy swimming and spending quality time with my friends and family in my spare time.
