Before starting her career in estate agency in 2011, Helen spent nearly 19 years working as a legal secretary in Launceston, so feels she has a good understanding of how the conveyancing process works. Prior to D C Property, Helen worked for Mansbridge Balment for six years and in this time successfully passed her NAEA exams and two NVQ’s in the sale of residential property. Helen is married to Steve (our board man) and has two daughters Becky and Libby. In her spare time she is Treasurer for Lifton Sea Scouts and enjoys walking her two dogs, Miley and Ziva as well as spending as much time with her family as possible. She is well known in the office for her love of all things Disney and spontaneously bursting in to song at any moment.

Linda Symons -

Sales Consultant

Launceston born and bred, Linda has worked in sales and customer service roles for most of her working life, and is a real asset to the team. Having worked for HBH Woolacotts for many years and selling everything that goes in a house, she decided to start selling the house itself and joined Mansbridge Balment in 2014. Her successful sales record and passion for her job meant being part of D C Property was an obvious choice. Linda is now fully qualified under the NAEA after recently passing her Level 3 exams. Being a farmers daughter, Linda likes to spend her time outdoors and has recently taken up coastal walking. She also enjoys gardening, cooking and other arts and crafts projects.
