Simon Tongue

Senior Sales Negotiator, Cobham

I’ve been in estate agency for 30+ years, much of which was spent running a successful sales office in Putney, before moving out into Surrey and working in the busy Dorking and Reigate markets before my first stint in Cobham and Oxshott. I was then offered a position in Kingswood where I stayed for four years but I missed Cobham and returned, joining GB in March 2021. I’m thrilled to be back in Cobham and with the fantastic team at GB!

I’ve always loved the fact that every day is different in estate agency. Helping people through the (sometimes challenging) process from the start all the way through to the finish remains hugely satisfying.

Tell us about you outside of work

I live with my family about half an hour away and enjoy the drive to and from the office through the country lanes.

What’s your favourite bit of a house?

One of my interests is classic cars, so I tend to get quite excited about garages!

Fun facts

I have a weakness for cherry tomatoes and already have a reputation in the office for this. I’m also a life-long supporter of Leeds United!

One thing you’ve taken from the last year

During the first lockdown last year, my son and I had something of a Time Team thing going on, when we looked for and discovered through some careful digging, the site of the original primary school local to us, which was demolished in the mid-60s and is now enveloped by woodland. The current headmaster then took this on, doing an illustrated talk to the rest of the school.
