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

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.

Jola enjoys the fast pace of basketball and his most memorable moments are centered on his son and daughter.

Patrick Donnelly

Land & New Homes Director

Telephone: 020 8655 4783

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.

Michael Ansong

Sales Consultant

Telephone: 020 8683 8101
