A small insight into the staff at Vincent Real Estate

13 Aug 2015
  • Can you introduce yourself
    • Your name - Stewart Banks
    • Where you live in Spain – Benijofar, Costa Blanca
    • Where do you come from originally - Bridlington, Yorkshire
    • Role within the office – Operations Director, controlling the lead generation, marketing and business development at the front end of the business along with negotiation for the buyer and overseeing sales to completion
    • How long have you lived here – On the Costa Blanca since 2009 and prior to that Costa Del Sol since 2001 – 14 years in Spain in total
  • What attracted you to this area – When the property investment market crashed in 2008 I moved up to the Costa Blanca as property prices were much more realistic than those on the Costa Del Sol. My parents are living in the area so made sense to market properties on the Costa Blanca to clients whose budget was limited for the Costa Del Sol.
  • Where do you see yourself in 5 years - I would love to see myself retired on an island with no internet or mobile phone coverage !!!. The reality is more like developing the business alongside the next generation still driving the business forwards
  • What experience do you have in the industry – 14 years in the Real Estate industry from local resale property sales in Spain to property investment worldwide
  • What is your work background - Started my working life many years ago in the ‘rag trade’ as an engineer, gaining experience over the years to eventually manage the factory. Then moved between industries being the site Manufacturing and Operations Manager for a 24/7 site. Also studied part time during this period to achieve a BA Hons in Business Studies. Moved to Spain in 2001 where I applied my knowledge of business operations in to the Real Estate industry
  • What do you enjoy in your spare time – Keeping fit (gym and running 6 times a week) and participating in Obstacle Course Races eg Tough Mudder and Spartan Races. Always pushing myself
  • Do you have any pets Well my 22 year old son lives with me, and he is pretty much house trained!!!
  • Favorites
    • Favorite film Joint favourites Top Gun for the adrenaline and The Bucket List, Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson really make you think about getting everything out of life that you can
    • Favorite animal – German Shepherd
    • Favorite band/artist - Queen
    • Favorite sport - No real favourite, interests from Formula 1 to Rugby
  • And finally who would you say is your biggest inspiration in life - Brian Tracy on the sales guru side of life… but anyone that pushes their life to its limit and strives to do better inspires me. Members of the Armed forces who have returned with lost limbs and then compete in Para Olympics are a true inspiration.
