I have over 20 years of experience in the property industry both here the USA & in Spain. I have built a portfolio of properties both here and abroad. My aim at Seekers is to provide an excellent service for all our clients and the company enjoys an enviable reputation in North Kent for both Sales and Rentals, with the majority of our business coming from referrals. Training is at heart of the service we provide and all customer facing staff are either ARLA trained or working towards their qualification.
Outside of work I enjoy time with my family, walking Pixie (see her in meet the team) and overseas travel. My hobbies include playing Bridge and learning Golf.

Carly SandsTenancy Portfolio Manager
I am well into my second decade working with Seekers, which is great as it means I know most of our Landlords and many of our tenants personally. I have always had a passion for customer service, attention to detail and I enjoy talking to clients. A major part of my role is to ensure with all the new changes in legislation our Landlords are compliant and protected.
Amber MullaneTenancy Portfolio Manager
I joined Seekers in 2019 as a Sales and Lettings Negotiator. However, after coming back from maternity leave I became a Tenancy Portfolio Manager, which means I’ve been lucky enough to gain experience in a wide range of fields here. I love managing tenancies, solving the problems that arise and being able to build up a good rapport with landlords and tenants alike. I graduated from the University of Kent in 2016 with a joint Honours Degree in History and Religious Studies, and was actually a teacher before making the switch to property! In my free time I enjoy going on walks and park trips with my two little girls and making their hair bows.
Tara QasemTenancy Portfolio Manager
Although I am new to Seekers I come with transferable skills and experience within the housing sector. At my time in my previous job I dealt with tenancy agreements, setting up new tenants and existing tenants on the in house program. I also contributed to the yearly rent increases and tenants arrears. In addition to dealing with the tenancies, I dealt with maintenance and repair issues.
I am excited to be part of the Seekers team and looking forward to building a rapport with the landlords and tenants and help them with any queries they have.

My background is marketing within the industry, I joined Seekers Homes as I wanted to help clients rent and purchase their homes. I love meeting different people and helping them find their dream home. My previous experience as a marketing manager with a specialist buy to let lender and mortgage broker means I enjoy finding property investors a property with a great Yield.
I have both rented and purchased my own properties so I understand the process from both sides which enables me to empathise with the buyers and tenants.
