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


Telephone: 020 8655 4710

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 35 years, 32 of them at Streets Ahead.

Jola Bamigbola

Senior Manager

Telephone: 020 8683 8100

Jola has risen through the ranks and notched up 15 years at Streets Ahead. It will be no exaggeration that Jola enjoys an almost cult following due to his superb customer service and everyone knows Jola in Crystal Palace. With a love of fine-dining, Jola has an eye for subtle detail and is reputedly Streets Ahead’s best dressed man. 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.

Joanna Nilsson

Senior Consultant

Telephone: 020 8676 2163

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.

After successfully completing his apprenticeship with Streets Ahead, he worked in several offices ensuring he was an expert in all of the borough.

Dwayne’s experience across the whole sector in residential sales and in particular new homes has made him the expert to go to.
