Whites Estate Agents are Celebrating 35 years of Glenda

27th April 2023

Leading Salisbury Estate Agent Whites are excited to celebrate Glenda Privett, who has worked at Whites Estate Agents for an impressive 35 years.

Not many people can boast such longevity and loyalty to one company.

Glenda joined Whites in 1988, just before her 21st birthday, as an Office Junior, reporting to the then Managing Director Trevor Shepherd. She remembers then that the office in Castle Street, Salisbury had just five people.

Glenda recollects: "The office had a friendly feel where everyone helped with everything. I also worked on Saturday mornings, as we had no separate Saturday staff then".

She then became Trevors PA, where she typed surveys and valuations, before moving to the Sales department, where she was Sales Secretary for James Butcher and Ashley Miller.

When in 1993, Trevor's son Marcus joined the company as joint Head of Lettings, it wasn't long before Glenda stepped across to become his PA in a position she has remained in today, alongside her other office management duties. Times have changed, though, and although still in the same office, the company now boasts a 20-strong team, with 600 plus landlords, Let Only Landlords and a successful sales team becoming arguably Salisbury's leading Sales and Letting Agent.

Glenda says. "I am proud to have seen and been part of the team which has seen Whites grow and evolve into the busy, thriving, and award-winning estate agent it is today."

Marcus adds," Working alongside Glenda for the past thirty years and seeing her grow in both knowledge and confidence has been a pleasure. I want to thank her personally for her hard work, dedication, and loyalty. She is such a crucial part of our Whites family and helps us to be the thriving independent estate agent we are today."

Outside work, Glenda and her husband Steve are both keen members of their local air rifle shooting club, Southampton Buccaneers Field Target Shooting Club, based near Romsey.

In 2014 she was voted the most improved shooter in the region.

Glenda is also interested in photography and loves taking pictures of nature, including her grandchildren and Jack Russell Alfie.
