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, 28 of them at Streets Ahead. His interests are diverse, from gym/boxing and buying/selling fine art.

George Potter

Lettings Manager

Telephone: 020 8253 1605
Email: george.potter@streetsahead.info

George joined Streets Ahead in 2014 coming from a corporate estate agent and having worked for Streets Ahead in the past, it was the personal touch that he confessed he missed. George who is just about to move himself appreciates the anxieties of our customers and is always on hand with the benefit of his experience. George runs a successful lettings team out of our flagship Croydon High Street branch. Football-fan and gym-goer George used the backdrop of Central Park, New York, for the biggest moment of his life so far – getting engaged.

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.

Joanna Nilsson

Senior Sales Consultant

Telephone: 020 8676 2163
Email: joanna.nilsson@streetsahead.info

Joanna is in her second term with Streets Ahead after starting in 2005 rising through the ranks to management briefly taking time out with the family and in the corporate world of estate agency but quickly returning as providing tailored customer service is her passion and forte. Joanna has estate agency flowing through her veins by her own admission having started her career with Foxtons estate agents and worked her way up to selling their prestige properties. Joanna is an active family mum and by her own admission likes to do all her own cooking and baking.

Danny Poulton-Midani

Senior Branch Manager

Telephone: 020 8253 1612
Email: danny.midani@streetsahead.info

Danny is an extremely experienced Estate Agent, having worked in the Croydon area since 1990 and risen through the ranks of a well-known corporate brand which eventually resulted in senior management, heading up a busy office. Danny is unquestionably a multi tasked Estate Agent, having also run a hybrid Estate Agency brand. By his own admission, Danny is well travelled and globe-trotting holidays are a definitely a passion. Out of work hours, Danny is a keep fit fanatic and gym goer and is an avid theatre goer.

Email: zoe.pennington@streetsahead.info

Family comes first for Zoe who loves nothing more than spending time with her loved ones on holiday. Zoe’s favourite holiday destination is Lanzarote which she knows and loves well but visited Miami in 2018 which she also thoroughly enjoyed. Zoe joined us in January 2014 and 4 years in, this keen runner is certainly going far in the industry.

Myles Blair

Telephone: 020 8253 1602
Email: Myles.blair@streetsahead.info

Myles is in his second year with Streets Ahead and is already bringing huge enthusiasm and energy to his team.

He has clearly found his niche in property and out of work you can find Myles either playing Fifa or at the Gym

Local Information

Restaurants:

restaurants_central-croydon
Croydon’s hugely-popular Restaurant Quarter in South End, has an amazing array of eateries inspired by cultures from home and across the globe, which even the fussiest of eaters would be hard-pressed to complain about.

One of the most renowned restaurants of British fare is Michelin-listed Albert’s Table which offers fine dishes such as broth of wild rabbit and Herdwick Hogget (lamb). Nearby, the Croydon Steak House, opened in 1967, pledges “a steak as big as you like”. Galicia offers Spanish tapas and Khyber’s menu features classical Indian dishes with a contemporary twist.

For Italian food lovers, Ponte Nuovo pledges a touch of Milan glamour with its cool bright interior while Beijing Cottage’s menu features Peking and Cantonese cuisine from delicious duck to luscious lobster.

A short walk south to the end of the restaurant quarter, you’ll find Bagatti’s, a popular Italian that’s been in the area for 25 years, serving up the likes of antipasti and bruschetta, cuttlefish and raw beef.

Just a few doors away is Malcolm John’s Michelin-listed Brasserie Vacherin, a French bistro with moules marineres (mussels in white wine and shallot sauce), smoked duck and lamb brochette on its menu. The stylish Txt Bar offers contemporary bar food such as platters, pulled pork burgers and halloumi wraps.

In the heart of central Croydon, at the Clocktower Café, you’ll find the perfect place to combine culture, coffee (or Fairtrade Tea) and cake. This eaterie is based in the Croydon Clocktower, home to Croydon museum, library and David Lean cinema.

Yet, if you fancy something stronger, just next door is The Spread Eagle ale and pie house (with plenty of other dishes on the menu if pie isn’t your thing), set in a former bank and presided over by a golden eagle statue.

Another venue that combines culture and food is Matthew’s Yard, which has an art gallery and studios, with Hoodoo’s serving tea and coffee, and BRGR & Beer offering home-made organic beef burgers and craft beers. And if you want something swift and al fresco, why not try out Surrey Street Market’s food to go stalls. The market is something of an institution in Croydon, dating back to 1237 and is well supported by locals.
