Jo Jarrett (Groves) NAEA (BA Hons)

Jo has a true passion for property, having over 25 years of experience in the sales and lettings sector. Having successfully gained her degree in 2006, at the tender age of 23 Jo received her first managerial role in a large corporate agency. Jo then went on to successfully manage numerous agencies within the Yorkshire region and in 2018 decided to follow her passion and set up on her own. Her agency went on to create a bespoke and ‘multi-award-winning’ agency that is BPS today. Since then the team has expanded and now covers both the North and East Yorkshire regions where Jo has lived and worked over the last 18 years and where she has brought up her two children. Jo’s relentless drive and innovative approach to the industry ensures each and every one of her clients receive an unrivalled customer experience.

Professional Photographer

Matt Hillier

‘I am a professional freelance property photographer, based in Ryedale. I am self-taught, and pride myself on focusing on natural light and spaces within properties. I love the contrast of cosy old cottages and modern minimalist homes, and with every property being so different, no day is ever the same. It’s fascinating meeting so many different people too, and quite often their enthusiastic pets!’
