We are only as good as our people, so let us introduce you to our two partners, whose personalities give Compass its direction
Don’t let the fact that Dave Mills played football for Brighton and the Tulsa Roughnecks, plus a range of semi-professional teams put you off; he’s quite harmless really! With a background in corporate finance and fully qualified, Dave gains his greatest satisfaction from enabling young couples, who never thought they would be able to afford a mortgage, to embark on their first steps up the property ladder.
A veteran of two Brighton Marathons, Simon has proven his financial endurance too. Like Dave, he has a background in the corporate world of finance and is also fully qualified. His proudest professional moment? He cites the example of a young lady, who had been turned down for a mortgage more than once, but whom Simon helped and who is now paying less on her own home than she had been in rent.
Since joining Compass in November 2017 with decades of property experience behind her, Nicky has taken over the administration, data input and operational support roles at the company, allowing Dave and Simon to do what they do best, only better and faster. In her spare time, Nicky enhances her creative and deductive skills respectively through painting and sudoku.
