Our People

The single reason we are so successful is our staff

The success of our business relies on employing staff who are at the top of their game. At every level, we strive to field a team that our clients will find approachable, friendly and easy to work with. In an industry sector where a high turnover of staff isn’t unusual, we are proud to have an exceptional record for retaining our employees. Our staff have found little appeal in moving on, preferring to remain within the Burns & Webber and Curchods family - over 40% of our staff have been with us for more than 5 years whilst 20% have been employed by the company for more than 10 years, of which some 15 individuals have been with us over 20 years.

Andrew Dewar
Joint Senior Partner

Founder and Joint Senior Partner Andrew Dewar has spent more than 40 years as a professional in the Surrey property market and has been instrumental in creating the company we are today. Andrew’s career has seen him help thousands of people move home and his innate human understanding has enabled him to create and shape the outstanding customer experience we provide. Andrew’s passion for recruiting, training and retaining the very best people means he is still as active in the business today as he was on day one but is now focused on staff training and development.


John Slatter
Joint Senior Partner

Chairman and Joint Senior Partner John Slatter has been respected in the property industry for over 45 years. Although today, the day-to-day business is vested in the hands of our Managing Director and some 200 staff, John’s appetite for the business never to wanes and he is always available to help and advise across the whole spectrum of residential property matters – we just can’t keep him away!


Dan Dewar
Regional Sales Director

Dan is very proud to have worked his way up through the company, having started as a Trainee Negotiator in the 1990’s. A move to senior management at a group level has meant that Dan is able to implement some of the best practice he developed running the Farnham Branch on a wider scale and help the already successful offices within his region continue to grow and outperform the competition.




Adam Lockett
Head of Lettings

Adam has a proven track record of success throughout a career that spans more than 15 years working in the London and Surrey lettings market. In previous roles, Adam has worked for both a large corporate agent, as well as developing two other prestigious letting agencies to become market leaders in their chosen areas. Adam joined the company in January 2020 and is responsible for all aspects of the lettings division with a key focus on ensuring he and his team deliver the highest levels of service for both our landlords and tenants.
