It’s always great to hear from old colleagues. This year, ludlowthompson have been lucky enough to welcome sales agents Gerard Murphy and Jonathan Adams back into the fold, after three years away.
Gerard has returned as Sales Manager of ludlowthompson’s Dulwich branch with Jonathan working alongside him.
Alexander Rawlinson, Managing Director at ludlowthompson, says: “Gerard and Jonathan are great additions to our sales force, and we are delighted to have them, and their valuable experience, back on our team.”
“ludlowthompson is constantly looking to expand - not only by taking on fresh new talent, but also attracting back those with more experience. Working with us in the residential property market is an engaging career path with abundant opportunities to progress.”

1. What experience do you have in the residential property market?
Jonathan Adams: I have been an agent in sales for around five years now, always in southwest and southeast London, and I was with ludlowthompson for my first two years.
Gerard Murphy: I have been in the sales side of the business for around six years, beginning my career at the ludlowthompson Oval branch as a sales negotiator for around two years, before moving to Acton for six months.
2. What have you been doing in the three years since you left ludlowthompson?
Jonathan Adams: I have been working at another agency in Kennington - I knew the area really well from my time at ludlowthompson in Oval.
Gerard Murphy: After leaving ludlowthompson, I worked as a sales negotiator in a southeast London branch of another agency for three and a half years, before deciding I wanted to return.
3. What made you return?
Jonathan Adams: I gained good experience working at another agency, but felt that there was limited potential for career advancement. A fresh challenge and the chance to progress in the property industry were the main factors for my return to ludlowthompson.
Gerard Murphy: ludlowthompson offers invaluable development opportunities, and I’ve always felt a fondness for the agency, as they gave me my first job after venturing to London.
4. How has ludlowthompson changed in the 3 years since you left?
Jonathan Adams: The ludlowthompson image has changed hugely - new website, fresh branding, modern offices and lots of new faces. But the core values remain the same: Maximum Performance, Maximum Communication and Maximum Trust.
Gerard Murphy: It’s been nice to see that a lot of familiar faces are still here, and I’m delighted to be in the newly rebranded and renovated Dulwich office – I’m happy to say that the same proactive ethos at ludlowthompson remains firmly in place. I am planning on managing the sales office well in order to double the success of 2017, and plan to take a big bite into the Dulwich market in preparation for an even bigger 2019.
Our head office based in Worcester also saw a member of staff return in autumn last year. Jordan Powell re-joined the team after only two months working within the automotive industry. Prior to this change Jordan worked at ludlowthompson for two years in our central telesales team, where he was promoted to senior telesales executive.
Jordan was grateful for the opportunity to come back to the company where he feels a sense of belonging, a place he says “offers a consistent and reliable working environment that benefits family life and helps make him feel grounded”. Jordan has settled back in nicely and is already looking for opportunities to progress within the company.
Gemma Heaton, Head of Property Services and line manager to Jordan says: “We were extremely pleased to welcome Jordan back and he has performed exceptionally since his return passing on his knowledge to support the whole team. It's like he never left”.
Gerard and Jonathan are great additions to our sales force, and we are delighted to have them, and their valuable experience, back on our team
