Christina Campbell: Welcome to the Team!


We are thrilled to introduce you to our newest recruit, Christina Campbell!

Christina will be working in our Newcastle office as a Lettings Administrator; she will be assisting our property managements and lettings teams with their responsibilities.

Christina originates from the North East and outside of work she is involved with a brass band, playing the trombone and is also a trustee of the Alice Ruggles Trust, fantastic charity that raises awareness of coercive control and stalking to bring about lasting change in order to protect victims.

Five Minutes with Donna Cheney…

We asked our Regional Operations Manager, Donna, a few questions so that you could get to know her a little bit better.

How did you get into the letting industry?

I worked in recruitment for about 9 months after I graduated university in Newcastle, and was recruiting for a national property company.  They called me and offered me a Lettings Negotiators job as they were impressed with my recruiting work!

What is it that you love most about your job and working in a letting agency?

I love the pace of lettings.  It is a very fast paced industry, and highly time pressured, but I thrive in that environment and enjoy seeing quick results from our work.  In my current position I love working with the people that I do – I enjoy coaching and developing people to be the best that they can and achieve what they want to in their careers.

Three people you’d love to have dinner with?

Brian Cox as I am fascinated by space and astronomy

Hugh Jackman as I find him very pleasant to look at!

Michelle Obama as I think she is a highly intelligent woman with a great deal to offer the world

Guilty pleasure?

I am afraid I am a bit of a Keeping up With the Kardashians fan…  a bit of mindless entertainment on a Sunday evening!

What’s your passion outside of lettings?

I love the outdoors and am lucky to live so close to the coast and the beautiful Northumberland countryside and love walking.

Students Get Festive with Christmas Baubles

Westfield School, Gosforth recently enjoyed a fun filled day of festivities creating Christmas baubles for residential letting and property management company, GFW Letting.

As part of a special Christmas competition, 92 schoolgirls, aged between 3 and 11 years old, were each asked to design a bauble which would be used as part of the Christmas decorations at the GFW Letting, Kenton office. A winner from each class was chosen by the GFW Letting team and awarded tickets to visit Seven Stories, National Centre for Children’s Books in Newcastle. Each student who took part was also given a chocolate treat as a thank you for their time and effort in designing the baubles.

Stacey Wann, Property Manager at GFW Letting, said: “It’s been an absolute pleasure to work with the students at Westfield School. The girls produced some fantastic baubles showcasing their imagination and artistic talent. The baubles are currently taking pride of place in our front window at our Kenton office – bringing some festive joy and colour to the premises and surroundings.”

Susan Hann, Nursery teacher at Westfield School in Gosforth, said: “It was nice to be approached by GFW Letting and get the children involved in an art activity with a festive theme. The bauble designs were brilliant and I am pleased all of them have been put on display at the GFW Letting office. The winners were delighted with their prizes and are looking forward to visiting Seven Stories with their families.”
