KMJ Property is family run Estate Agents in Tunbridge Wells, owned and run by us – David & Suzanne Johnson (the K, M & J are the initials of our three children, two of whom have recently joined us working for the business).
KMJ Property was established in 2008 and we provide a personal, professional and enthusiastic approach to selling properties throughout Tunbridge Wells and surrounding villages. David and Suzanne are both members of The Property Ombudsman Scheme and qualified with the NAEA.
We all live locally with our families and have good knowledge of the local area, including schools, transport, shops, facilities, walks and clubs. Katrina and Sarah both currently live in the Rusthall village, and are on hand to give recommendations for unmissable restaurants, pubs and events in the village.
Our in-house software is cloud based enabling us to access the information we require quickly and efficiently from anywhere with internet connection! Meaning that even if the office is closed and we are out and about, as long as we have a mobile phone signal, we can access the whole of our database via the mobile phone, laptop or tablet. We are contactable 7 days a week so even when our office is closed, phone messages and emails come through to our mobile. Estate agency isn’t just our work, it’s who we are, and we pride ourselves on good old fashioned customer service.
We have been known to receive an offer, put it forward, agree the offer and send the confirmations whilst cooking a family Sunday dinner.
At KMJ Property we feel that we are part of the community and involve ourselves in as many local events as possible and help to promote these events via advertising, word of mouth and twitter etc. You may spot us running a stall at the summer fete, being marshals for the Bonfire night or dressing our shop with lights and tinsel at Christmas.
In 2019 we started talking about evolving the business and in 2020 among the Covid19 crisis, we decided to spread our wings and develop the business outside of our core area. In 2021 we opened a new branch in Crowborough, and expanded our team meaning that we now have the ‘K’ and the ‘M’ in the office.
Meet Our Team
I started my own bakery business at the age of 21, the same year myself and my wonderful wife got married. I have now been in the property industry for over 20 years. My family and I live in Southborough with our two sons Marc and Jack. Our daughter moved out in 2017 and is now a homeowner in Rusthall. I may look familiar!? You may have seen me on the television, I have featured on Homes under the Hammer several times.
I originally trained as a bilingual secretary and worked for a local house building company, before joining David in his bakery business in 1997. I have also been in the property industry for over 20 years. I have lived in the Southborough/Tunbridge Wells area for most of my life. My passion is in progressing sales and having the all-important conversations with our clients, my favourite part of this business is calling clients to let them know they have completed on their property and handing over their keys!
The ‘K’ in KMJ! I have recently taken a career change to join the family business. My background includes Store Management, Healthcare and Emergency Services. In 2020 my partner and I brought our first home, in Rusthall. Watching the process unfold and the joy we felt when it completed gave me hunger and curiosity to follow in my parents’ footsteps.
The ‘M’ in KMJ! My enthusiasm in the property market has been within me from a young age, having grown up with my parents running the Estate Agency. I sold my first house alongside David, my dad, at the age of 16. My passion has grown over recent years as I have taken a more hands-on, full-time role within the family business.
Sarah moved back to the area from Sweden over 12 years ago and joined the team in 2008. Sarah works part-time carrying out viewings and liaising with applicants. Sarah has a good knowledge of local schools and Rusthall Village, where she lives.
Having grown up in Crowborough and its surrounding areas I have a great knowledge of the different areas in and around East Sussex. I have had a passion for property since a young age and I am looking forward to pursuing my career in Estate Agency with KMJ Property. In my spare time I enjoy going for countryside dog walks along the Ashdown Forest with my partner.
I have always been a home interiors enthusiast, having renovated two Victorian homes in Tunbridge Wells, I am now looking to extend and enjoy my Grade II listed cottage in East Sussex. I currently run an antiques and interiors business along with my Sister, mainly online which has allowed me to join KMJ Property to help on the viewings side of the business.
Although I may not be as athletic as I once was, if I may say so myself, I have certainly aged well. I am often seen on our company Instagram and Facebook Pages (@KMJPROPERTY). I tend to spend most of the day lounging around, and when I am not, I’m usually sitting on worktops (where I shouldn’t be) posing for David’s photos.
