As is common amongst the more experienced Kimmitt and Roberts crew, Marion trained at Charles Bell, first working with Bill over twenty years ago. As manager of the Peterlee branch, her extensive experience allows her to run a highly efficient and extremely successful office, along with her young but remarkably accomplished team. Marion has sold houses in Sunderland and Houghton before being appointed by Halifax as their manager in Peterlee in the mid 1990s. She joined Kimmitt and Roberts in 2003 to run the newly opened Peterlee branch. Neither Marion nor Kimmitt and Roberts looked back. In 2015, Marion’s property knowledge, business acumen and experience were formally recognised when she was awarded the highly prized “Assoc RICS” designation in becoming an Associate of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors – very rare in Estate Agency. She is also an Associate of The Guild of Property Professionals. Marion is professional, thorough and extremely determined yet has retained an essential sense of humor. As anyone who as ever worked with Marion will tell you, there is only one Marion Barrett!
