health issues of all this will be here for some time to come. “And so now, as spring arrives and we all get to

come outside again, I wanted people to see positive, uplifting messages about sunshine and ice creams and unicorns, just to give them a bit of a lift.” T omas Connolly Estate Agents is the fastest

growing estate agent in Milton Keynes, boasting a team now numbering over 30, working from its offi ces in T e Hub and assisting clients with all aspects of buying and selling properties, managing and letting properties and advising on overseas purchases.

As an owner-led firm, Joe and his business

partner and fellow Managing Director Neal Butler were determined, throughout lockdown and furloughs, to continue their ethos of responding professionally and promptly to clients’ queries, questions and property management concerns. Capitalising on that continuation of service

throughout the pandemic, once the sales team were back to full strength by the summer of last year, they were keen to get back to the task of building on the successes of the lettings team during lockdown. Doubling their sales targets in July and August was the kickstart they needed, and the company has continued to fl ourish ever since.

Now, the attention is turning to the task of bringing some of that energy to a wider audience, and one that may not feel as positive, for a whole host of reasons. “A lot of the stuff I do in my life is about dealing

with people, and if I can somehow make someone feel happy about themselves, or better about what’s going on around them, then I’m happy, too,” said Joe.

“Thomas Connolly is my company and I’m

delighted with the success we have had, but this time I just wanted it to be about what I believe in. I want to be surrounded by good, authentic people in my business and outside of it, and there is a such a thing as karma – you do something good, you get something good in return. “So hopefully the messages we’re putting

out there, that aren’t about selling your house or getting you on our books, but are about how you feel, how we can help you to feel happy, are far more important to people at the moment. If they bring a smile to someone’s face, or help them feel stronger in themselves and about what they are doing, that’s all I want to do.”
