Keith Enevoldsen, FNAEA
Keith Enevoldsen was born in Guernsey and educated at Elizabeth College. Having originally worked for the Civil Service, he entered into Guernsey's property market as an Open Market negotiator in the eighties. After ten very successful years he found a fresh challenge in the world of retail finance - selling money! However, he missed the cut and thrust of the property market and joined Martel Maides in 2001 as a Local Market negotiator; becoming the department manager in 2003 and a Director of the Company in 2004. A fully qualified Fellow of the National Association of Estate Agents, Keith brings a formidable mix of enthusiasm, experience and professionalism which clients and applicants expect from Guernsey's leading property agency. Also a qualified Auctioneer, Keith can sometimes be found selling chattels and furniture on Thursday afternoons at our Auction Rooms. He tries to keep some spare time for boating, sea fishing and any competitive sport he can find!
With an honours degree in Fine Art, Richard’s early career path rather incongruously led him to a ten year stint in shellfish farming and through a period in property renovation before arriving at Martel Maides. He has been one of the island’s leading negotiators specialising in Open Market sales for over 25 years has been privileged to sell many of the Island’s finest homes - quite often, more than once! There's not much about the intracacies of the Open Market that he doesn't know. Richard is also a director of Martel Maides Auctions and a founding member of the Guernsey Property Forum.
Terry Gardiner, MRICS
Terry was born in London but was raised in the United Arab Emirates.

He qualified as a chartered surveyor at Cluttons in the West End and during his several years in London also worked with DTZ in their Curzon Street office. He has experience in both residential and commercial property and returned to Guernsey in 2008 to join Martel Maides Commercial.

Business Development Manager
Jason joined MMA in January 2016 as Business Development Manager, after 20 years working in the Finance Industry. He joined Baring Brothers London after graduating from Bournemouth University and spent the next 10 years working in various London based Banks, including S.G.Warburg, Merrill Lynch and Bank of New York. He returned to Guernsey in 2005 where he worked for HSBC Private Bank CI Ltd up until making the decision to make a complete career change to join MMA. His love of art, design and contemporary furniture, together with his experience gained in large financial institutions should hopefully drive the auction business expansion plans. Being a small team, he also gets involved with all aspects of the auction business, including time on the rostrum!
Auctioneers Assistant / Auctioneer
Even though Shaun has only worked at MMA for a relatively short time, he has always had a love of antiques and curiosities and is an avid collector of silver. Although a born and bred Guernseyman Shaun has travelled the world extensively and has had many varied jobs as a Tree Surgeon and Youth Worker to name but a few. With his trademark moustache and loud shirts and suits he can sometimes be seen sporting lovely bow tie. He helps MMA financially by being one of their best customers as he can’t resist buying in our auctions ! His tea and coffee making skills are legendary, so much so, that they appear to be only an annual occurrence. Outside MMA, he can be found herding cows, in his kitchen cooking up masterpieces, or enjoying the odd glass of wine. Shaun will soon be on the rostrum having recently got his auctioneers license, so look out for his unique style any time soon !
Andrew (Drew) Masterton was born and educated in Guernsey but as soon as he could he left the island to go travelling and expand his horizons. Drew has mainly worked stores and manual trades but did have a career break to become a fully qualified bomb disposal operative with Mines Awareness Trust in Kosovo. This may or may not come in handy at the Auction Rooms ! Drew has an avid interest in collecting books, vinyl and anything to do with military especially the German Occupation and Second World war, so working at MMA is his ideal job, plus his commute to work takes 103 seconds!
Tia De Carteret
Educated at Guernsey Grammar School, Tia developed a keen interest in Vintage clothing and fell into becoming a collector after being unable to resist Vintage finds in Charity shops, Markets and Brocantes.
Her main passion is for Fifties and Sixties clothing and Mid-Century Furniture but also with a love of Books, Art and History. Her job at Martel Maides Auctions is ideal and the perfect opportunity for Tia to broaden her knowledge.
Administrator, Martel Maides Auctions
Accounts Manager, Martel Maides Auctions
The ‘new kid on the block’ (although far from the youngest!) being MMA's latest recruit as their new ‘numbers man’. With a career that has included accountancy, money management, stock broking, and investment portfolio management it could be argued numbers are in his blood. That would be along with the odd glass of red wine or pint of ‘real ale’. When not working on spreadsheets he can frequently be found walking the picturesque L'Ancresse Common, often with a set of golf clubs in hand, which some would argue is one way to ruin a good walk. They've clearly seen him play!
