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 18 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
  • I am the smallest Estate Agent you will ever meet

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!

Hi, I'm Rhianna Bartlett

I currently live in Crawley, and always have done. I previously worked for a clothes store in Crawley and have a passion for fashion.  I have recently passed my driving test so watch out for this girl racer! My hobby is horse riding and I own several horses along with my 3 sisters. If they are not at the stables they like to make their way down to the NEXT store down the road so if you see some horses queuing up outside, do let me know as they seem to think they can venture there without permission. I love going on holiday and traveling is definitely on my to do list so if I’m not working, at the stables or collecting my horses from their travels, I’m usually searching where I am going to explore next!

Facts about me

  • I am the newest and now the youngest member of the team
  • I have an unusual middle name
  • I am known by my friends as a typical 'blonde' (I don't agree!)
  • I was a dancer since I was 4 years old till the age of 15.
