Hi, I'm Matthew Cousins

I live in Crawley and have done all my life. I am an avid Arsenal fan, which may put some clients off! I have two beautiful daughters and a passion for selling houses, which I have been doing for over 17 years!

The day the excitement goes from selling a house and having another happy client is the day I retire from Estate Agency.

  • I have been told I like to deligate work to fellow colleagues
  • My family say I spend far too much time thinking about work
  • I made the unusual switch from being a mortgage broker to becoming an Estate Agent
  • I used to play football, but my knees have given up

Hi, I'm Natalie Wickenden

I live in Crawley with my husband and our 3 young children. 

I'm one of the newer members of the team joining in 2015. Prior to my time at Inspire I spent nearly 15 years working for a large airline in Project Management and Sales. 

I have always been really interested in Property (thanks to renovating various homes and becoming obsessed with property programmes on Maternity leave!!!) so I jumped at the chance to change my career, joined Inspire and channel my "inner Kirsty Allsopp"!!

With 3 young children my life is pretty hectic (work is definitely a break). I'm passionate about horse riding and have ridden and owned horses all my life, I love being outdoors in the fresh air.

Facts about me

  • My biggest ambition is to build my own home
  • I enjoy cooking and baking in my spare time
  • Natalie is a good name for me as I love to natter
  • I love a selfie and consider myself the most photogenic in the office!
