Meet the team

Bob Hay

Managing Director

Telephone: 020 8655 1300

Bob knows a thing or two about loyalty, being a Manchester Utd season ticket holder and having a daughter and son, Hollie and Lewis, who both work for Streets Ahead. Bob’s children and grand-children, Lilly and Livia, are the apples of his eye and his memorable moments include his daughter’s wedding two years ago. There is nothing that Bob likes more than being alone in the kitchen on Sunday and making a roast for the family (well maybe cheering at Old Trafford when Man United are winning!)

Gary O’Hare

Director

Telephone: 020 8655 4710
Email: gary.ohare@streetsahead.info

Gary’s most memorable moment is Streets Ahead winning a best estate agent award for the first time and is thrilled to bits that Streets Ahead have gone on to win 30 national awards since. Gary has vast experience having worked in the property sector for over 30 years, 26 of them at Streets Ahead. His interests are diverse, from gym/boxing and buying/selling fine art.

Being the managing director of one of the most recognised and well respected estate agents in the UK gives Kevin the perfect pedigree to move the Streets Ahead New Homes department forward and he is regularly asked to speak at national events.
Kevin is a family man, Chelsea supporter and is known for his dry sense of humour.

Patrick Donnelly

Land & New Homes Director

Telephone: 020 8655 4783
Email: patrick.donnelly@streetsahead.info

Patrick has been an estate agent in Croydon and the surrounding area for over 30 years and what Patrick doesn’t know about property isn’t worth knowing. Patrick is a fountain of knowledge to all the Streets Ahead family as his experience cannot be replaced. Patrick is a devout family man and loves taking the family on international holidays. Patrick knows a thing or two about football and what he doesn’t know about horse racing probably isn’t worth knowing about. Patrick counts his daughter’s graduation among his best memories.

Local Information

Restaurants:

restaurants_purley
For a small town on the edge of London, Purley is hugely cosmopolitan. Las Fuentes is an authentic Spanish tapas bar, great for groups and family, and so popular people can be seen queuing outside it. Buenos Aires offers a flavour of South America with its exquisite steak-based meals, offering cuts from Pampas grass-fed cattle, cooked on a parrilla (Argentine barbecue).

Another Argentine-influenced eaterie is Speroni, owned by Crystal Palace FC goalkeeper Julian Speroni. The Eagles’ legend’s restaurant has the tagline “Fusion Food. Traditional Meets Modern” and offers such dishes as Chicken Speroni (bacon wrapped and stuffed with spinach, Brie and mushroom).

Crossing the street (and continents) will bring you to Dan Thai which offers authentic Thai food such as Gang Mas Sa Mun and Pad Prik Khing curries.

Dexter Burger (which uses 100% grass-fed beef) has brought Soho dining to the edge of London and offers a new concept in food –high quality fast dining – as well as furniture, using old school chairs and tables built from scaffolding boards.

If you prefer something lighter, then Purley has some lovely little independent coffee shops. Lupita opens for breakfast and lunch, serving delights such as stuffed peppers and gluten-free almond cake while Café Blue offers an alternative to Costa (in the town and in Tesco) by offering fresh food such as lasagne and burgers.
