Founder & Director
Nigel established the Company in 1992 when he saw an opportunity to share his extensive knowledge of building and property development with Sedbergh property owners. Transforming the company into being recognisably different in this market is his ambition and expanding into new areas.
Nigel is a firm believer in ‘personal development’ and is happy to offer opportunities to those who can ‘bring something to the table’ and extend themselves in serving our clients. He was brought up in the local family business (D.T.Close) and from an early age learned to appreciate the customer service ethos and understand how most clients really value that commitment above most other factors.
Out of work he loves nothing more than a good game of squash but is equally interested in his children and grandchildren as well as extended family holidays to compensate for his business activities.
Matt joined us in November 2018 as our General Manger charged with the daily running of Cobble Country and the future development of the business. Matt comes to us with a wealth of experience in the property industry both residential and commercial. Matts focus is ensuring that Cobble Country provides both buyers and sellers with an exceptional level of service adding value to their buying or selling experience going above and beyond your typical high street estate agency and providing unmatched local knowledge. Out of work Matt is a keen mountain and road biker, having taken part it some challenging organised events, he is dad to two young boys and loves spending time with them.
Sue joined Cobble Country in 2015 with over 3 years estate agency experience in the area and has since then progressed to her present position of Lettings Manager.
As a key member of the team she uses her local knowledge, organisational skills, interest in both people and property to assist with providing a friendly, honest professional service. Out of work she is involved within the local community, enjoys travelling and walking.
