What Samantha says:

“I joined Martin Tolhurst Solicitors in April 2000 as a Conveyancer and am now based within the firm’s Longfield office. My career in conveyancing began in 1992, when I started as a Trainee; it was through hard work and determination that I became a Conveyancer.   I have always had a passion for property and conveyancing was an easy choice of career for me.

During my time here I have come across many varied transactions with different needs, some very complex and I enjoy finding ways to help to solve any challenges which arise throughout the process. 

I feel I work well under pressure and pride myself on my abilities to meet tight deadlines.  I aim to be the calm voice to my clients and reassure them during what can be one of the most stressful times in their lives. I am approachable and friendly and always try to find a solution to challenges with the minimum of stress.

I have a strong emphasis on client care, I like to ensure that my clients are well looked after and always feel welcome to return to me again, should they require my services in the future.     

Outside of the office I love to bake and spend time with my two children who keep me very busy. I have recently found a new love of running, I aim to run three times a week and participate in ‘boot camp’. I have also completed my first ‘mud’ run which was brilliant fun and looking forward to seeing how far I can push myself in terms of distance running in the future.”

A child psychologist, I have always wanted to help children with difficulties and try and make a difference in their lives.
