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.
Before finding her true vocation in property, Claire’s career path took her through a number of different customer facing roles both on and off the island. Having joined Martel Maides in 1999 and worked through various departments, she is now rapidly establishing a reputation in residential sales for unrivalled customer service and has successfully found homes for an ever increasing number of very satisfied clients.
Local Market Sales Consultant
Following his education at Elizabeth College, Stuart’s professional path has centred around various service orientated businesses. His early career involved to a role within a highly regarded local recruitment firm, where his sales and client relation skills were honed. This facilitated a position within one of the islands longest standing estate agencies where Stuart undertook all aspects of property sales and management and it was this experience that led the to creation of his own small property sales company. Some time away from the sector within the family business clarified his desire to return to property and he has been with Martel Maides since 2016.
