There are few more focused or determined sales directors than James.

Having started as a lettings negotiator he has worked developing an encyclopedic knowledge of the city that has, time and again, proven priceless to Arkade clients.

Personal

Carol McEntee

Carol McEntee

Director

Following many years of working as an independent estate and lettings agent with offices originally in Birmingham Centre then relocating to Longbridge in 2008, Carol is now delighted to now become part of this energetic, like minded and forward thinking team of professionals, Arkade Property.

Carol was born in Northfield but her family moved to Longbridge for her father's employment and Carol literarily 'slept to the sound of the hammers' of the Austin Rover works. Carol can still remember the devastation that followed with the closure of the once famous car plant. She is hugely proud of her roots and is honoured to be instrumental in helping a Phoenix rise from the ashes, watching the regeneration of this wonderful town has been her motivation to want to encourage new buyers moving into the area and to help old friends to find new homes to buy, sell or rent. With our new offices firmly located in the Innovation Centre, Longbridge it enables us to cover a wide range of areas both new and old, with over 2,000 planned new homes it is an exciting time for Longbridge Town and surrounding areas.

An interesting fact that people may not know about Carol is that upon leaving school she became one of the first female to become a journeyman as a Bookbinder and Print Finishers in Birmingham and served a four year apprenticeship with John Goodman & Sons, Cardigan Street and trained at Matthew Boulton College of Print. So, if you have any old novels you would like leather bound you know who to ask!

Personal

Carol is a proud mother of two wonderful daughters, Lauren and Taryn who with their partners and has four beautiful grandchildren, Mason, Albie, Josiah and Nuala who make life very interesting and fill any spare time she has. She also is lucky to have a wonderful Mum who at 86 years of age still keeps Carol on her toes.
