Natasha Smith

Natasha Smith

Partner

Natasha or ‘Tash’ as she is usually known is the latest addition to our team, bringing over 20
years sales experience. Tash cut her teeth in sales, selling long haul travel holidays, before
discovering the property industry.
In the intervening years she accepted a position as a negotiator within an independent estate
agency. Tash soon realised that her drive and enthusiasm for property was a path she wanted
to pursue and in 2010 her ‘go get it’ attitude saw her open her own estate agency.
After five busy and successful years Tash had built a business with an excellent reputation for
providing a friendly and professional service, which made it ideal for Chapplins to
incorporate Tash and her business into their Bordon office.
Outside work Tash spends most of her time with her family, she says her two teenage
children keep her busy and working hard! In her spare time she enjoys cycling and socialising
with friends and family.
