Emma Redley

I began my career in the property industry in 2003, starting as a sales negotiator for a corporate agent in Northampton. I fell in love with the industry and worked across both corporate and independent estate agents across Northamptonshire, Leicestershire, Staffordshire & Shropshire, in roles from negotiator, to valuer, to management. I found my true passion lay in the post sales process, and after being Sales Progression manager for an independent agent with five branches, I joined a MuveFirst Conveyancing as a Business Development Manager, working with estate agents & mortgage brokers. I was privileged enough to attend a Women in Residential Property event on mental health & wellbeing and the importance of it in the workplace, and it really hit a note within me that more needs to be done to allow this kind of support to reach more women locally to myself. I am incredibly excited and passionate about creating a safe forum for women to voice their feelings, concerns and ambitions in an arena where they will be heard and supported.

Samantha Burrows

I began my legal career in Litigation as a paralegal and after a couple of years, took the opportunity to make a move over to property  and have been working in Property law now for over 20 years!   I started with newbuild, move over to residential conveyancing and then back to new build.

Over the years I have worked for small high street firms to large corporate firms and have enjoyed each experience thoroughly as it brings another layer to the bits about the job I enjoy.  I love working with people and seeing them through their journey to owning their home.  First time buyers always bring me joy and seeing them take that step on to the housing ladder and the excitement in brings for them really makes it worthwhile.

I now do less on hands conveyancing (although still have a few files to keep my hand in) and now oversee our Apprenticeship Team at Aconveyancing.   I currently oversee 9 apprentices working through their legal qualification via the apprenticeship scheme and seeing them grow and development brings me joy each day.  I am so proud of them all.  I am incredibly passionate about mental health and wellbeing in the work place.  Being responsible for young people in our profession is a huge responsibility and as this profession can be a tough one,  ensuring that women feel seen and heard and being able to voice their feelings, concerns and thrive in a high pressured environment is of paramount importance to me.
