Introducing our team…

Rebecca Howland

Rebecca Howland, Managing Director

Rebecca is founder and managing director of Howland Jones residential lettings and sales and has over 17 years of experience in the lettings industry. More recently, Rebecca and husband Jon have successfully created a residential sales side to the business, selling investment properties for existing clients as well as properties for new sales clients. Rebecca ensures the company continually strives to achieve excellence across every discipline; with a client satisfaction orientated background, delivering remarkable service is always close to her heart. "My passion for Italian cooking is generally appreciated by my husband, son and daughter, although honesty always pays. In my "spare time" I play a number of instruments including the piano, cello and flute. Maybe I'll make it onto BGT yet. Other than that, I spend time with my adorable dog Brian (who you'll usually meet if you come to our offices), cat and four hens. Fresh eggs make amazing pasta!"

Jon  Howland

Jon Howland, Sales Director

Jon is a joint owner of the business with Rebecca and is focused on building the property sales arm of Howland Jones. Jon's vision for performance growth is based on delivering "customer delight". "My passion (or labour of love) is gardening, where I can switch off and get some lawn therapy. My other occasional passion is driving fast cars - very fast; a rare treat. When I can't indulge myself in fast cars, then golf makes do - if I can ever find the time for it."

Allison Lucas

Allison Lucas, Director of Lettings

Allison oversees the entire letting process and deals directly with our tenants and landlords throughout the tenacy process, from initial enquiry to closing inspection. "Music is my passion, live or otherwise; old or new. The ability to lose myself in a song helps me to stay sane - well as sane as I can ever be!"

If you have any queries with your rent or our fees, Fiona will help you. Fiona deals with all accounting for the company and runs a very tight ship with a hard earned average of less than 1% (regularly 0%) rent arrears at all times. "I am a huge fan of rugby, supporting my home team South Africa. With a great love for the outdoors and "sun" (think I moved to the wrong country!) I enjoy the traditional South African braai (bbq) and socialising with friends".

Carla Sabin

Carla Sabin, Senior Lettings Administrator

Carla is our Senior Lettings Administrator and oversees the referencing and Opening Inspection process, as well as supporting Rebecca Howland with client introductions. "Originally from Wales, I moved to Swadlincote 15 years ago with my husband. We share our home with our 10 year old daughter, two cats and a rabbit. I love to cook and especially enjoy teaching my daughter how to prepare a good home cooked meal. I enjoy glass painting and my friends and family will often get a hand painted item as a gift."

Contact Carla Sabin

"We rented a 2 bed flat through Howland Jones for 3 and a half years and from the start to the end of our time, the service from Howland Jones was brilliant. Quick to get us in to the flat, always promptly met our expectations when we required assistance with repairs, contract renewals etc. I give them the highest recommendation, and probably would of tried to stay in another one of their properties if I had not relocated overseas!"
