Meet our Team

John Burgoyne - Partner

John has been an estate agent for all of his 30 year career. Having worked within the corporate side of the business for many years, he decided to start his own independent estate agency and provide an exceptional customer service to clients and applicants alike. In 2009, Burgoynes won the coveted award of ‘Estate Agent of The Year, South West Region’ voted for by our clients, both sellers and buyers. This was a very proud moment for the company and cemented our position as a ‘client focused’ estate agent in Exeter. Since then we continue to grow from strength to strength concentrating on selling homes and focusing on developing new marketing tools to enhance our service through Rightmove and most recently with ‘Devon Live’ a new local website for news and property. John’s two loves of his life are his family and his singing, if it be performing at the Northcott Theatre and Barnfield Theatre in musicals or as a soloist for local male voice choirs.

Lyn Burgoyne - Partner

Having worked for nearly 24 years in the police service, Lyn decided in 2007 to join the family company and has never looked back. With managerial and communication skills gained from her previous employment, she has developed new abilities in marketing. 10 years on, John and Lyn are in agreement that service is paramount and value our clients highly. “We are advocates for providing an excellent service to both seller and buyer, updating them at all stages of their sale and purchase. This is proven by our No 1 status out of 122 agents on Zoopla ( figures provided by ZPG) for keeping sales and chains together”. Lyn is also a well known performer and director of musicals and pantomimes in the Exeter and East Devon area and her love of the theatre has now rubbed off on John and Lyn’s 13 year old daughter, Darcey, who has already performed in a number of pantomimes and dance shows, locally.

Sharon Jeens - Saturday Negotiator

Sharon is a very experienced sales negotiator with both sales and lettings, benefitting the team greatly. Sharon tends to work on Saturdays but can always be called upon to help the team when needed. Sharon enjoys life to the full and especially loves to walk her dog, Flo and  meet up with her numerous friends for a coffee, another of her passions.
