Sharon McCready

Sharon joined the Franklins team in August 2014. Sharons background is in customer services so her role is a natural progression as day to day duties involve interacting with tenants, landlords and contractors. “I thoroughly enjoy my job and the diversity of my working week, never a dull moment which is a very positive thing.

When I’m not in the office, I enjoy quality time with my family and friends. I dabble in a bit of gardening too and have been known to grow quite tasty vegetables! I also enjoy running but I’m very new to this so my first half marathon is a long way away yet!”
