Lettings Branch Manager Peter Lessels has always had a keen interest in property and this embarrassingly started with TV programmes such as Changing Rooms! Having started his career in 2007 with Foxtons, Peter was quickly promoted to a managerial role, spending 4 years specialising in the Surrey market focussing mainly on Guildford, Woking, Kingston and Weybridge. Peter joined Curchods in 2016 to manage the newly opened Walton Lettings Office and expand the branches portfolio and presence. Born and bred in Godalming where he has remained mainly throughout the course of his life, Peter enjoys his downtime, but having just been blessed with a newborn baby, quiet times are now non-existent!.
