Steven Govier, Managing director

My quote: If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not you’ll find an excuse.

What is your current role? My role, as founder of London Residential, is creating and delivering on the vision of London Residential. Looking to the future I am keen to expand the current number of offices and help further the careers of the team. My wish is to create a working environment that will allow the people we employ to flourish within the business; it’s important that everyone at London Residential contributes to the vision and enjoys the benefits of a successful company.

Background: I started off working for a small letting agency in a serviced office block in N1, in the late 90’s and became really interested in the industry. So much so that I formed London Residential with fellow director, Kirk Thompson, and never looked back! I love that every week in estate agency is a fresh challenge - people and property are what my business is all about.

These are a few of my favourite things: Challenges! I love a challenge, at work or at home, for me it’s an adventure! Some of my most satisfying achievements are watching others around me become successful. My lifestyle is fast-paced and fun and revolves around my family, my business, the gym and, last but not least, Arsenal FC. My ideal end to a good week is watching a film with those I care about, with a cold beer in hand. I love travelling and LA, Vegas and Ibiza are never too far away! I believe maintaining balance in life is key!
