Philip Christie – Managing Director
Philip has spent well over 20 years in estate agency, commencing back in 1981 with a family-run business in his native Kent and then with a national corporate chain before branching off into other property-related business areas. In 2004 Philip returned to front-line estate agency and set up Surehomes Estate Agents in Abergavenny before rebranding to Christie Residential in 2014. With the core values of providing straightforward, honest advice allied to integrity, Philip and his team are passionate about helping people navigate the onerous task of moving home with the minimum of fuss. Whilst sport, music & good food all feature in Philip’s life away from work, they are all very much second place in the pecking order behind spending quality time with his teenage daughter Megan and grown-up son, Jordan.
