Simon Goldin : Having come from a family of Estate Agents that have worked in the Brighton and Hove area for the past 60 years, it was a business Simon was destined to go into. He started his career in Estate Agency in 1983 as a Saturday Assistant for a large corporate firm of estate agents in Brighton. At the age of 20 he was made the youngest Manager of their Head Office. Then, after 20 years with the same company, he felt that the personal friendly service had been compromised and decided to join forces with his partner and open their own company where they could offer the level of service that they wanted to provide – hence Goldin Lemcke Estate Agents was formed.
Simon is living in Hove and is married with two children.
