Emma Jarvis
Founder & director

Emma has been awarded the NFOPP Level 3 in The Sale of Residential Property.  She believes in combining powerful, up-to-date marketing methods with the traditional values of service and integrity that never go out of fashion.

Possessing a wealth of life experience –  including serving as a Corporal in The Royal Military Police, time spent as a Detective Constable in the Metropolitan Police and a stint running her own small business – property has always been an overriding interest.

She couples her professional acumen with an ability to empathise with her clients, having had the benefit of her own experience in buying and selling property.

In her spare time, Emma relishes a challenge – she’s been St Ives U13’s Rugby Coach/Manager for the past seven years, sits on both Senior and Youth Section committees as well as being the treasurer for Saints Boardriders ( St Ives Surf Club ).

Sarah Shearer
Founder & director

“ What I love about my job is meeting an applicant, getting to know them, discovering their likes and dislikes and then helping them find their perfect home.  It is the “this is it!” moment that is just priceless – when their faces light up and they’re so excited, planning how it will all look.”

Her professional qualifications include an NVQ Level 2 in Sales Residency and she’s proud of the business that Abode has won through word – of – mouth recommendations.

Resident in St Erth, she is active in both the local business and wider community, and keeps an eye on all the current and proposed developments in the area.

One of her favourite activities is walking her springer spaniel every morning in and around St Erth or down at the river mouth in Hayle.
