Will Simons

The majority of my job is arranging viewings for properties, organising home valuations and providing mortgage advice and support for prospective buyers.

I studied English Literature at Oxford Brookes and graduated with a BA in English Literature in 2018. Among other reasons, the fact that I knew people already at the university who were having a great time had a big impact on my decision to study at Brookes.

There’s a great community spirit and everyone gets stuck in

The amazing friendships I made are one of the things I enjoyed the most about my time there. There’s a great community spirit and everyone gets stuck in. I’m still in touch with all of my close friends from university and we meet up whenever we can.

On the academic side, Dr Antonia Mackay and Professor Alex Goody were really helpful throughout my time at Oxford Brookes, and they’re a large part of the reason I’m where I am today.

I really love my current role at Housesimple and it’s great to be able to help people buying and selling their homes. It can be such a complicated but important process and I love that I can be a reassuring face, offering advice and assistance.
