Adrian Thomas (Member of FNAEA)

Adrian Thomas (Member of FNAEA)

Rickmansworth Partner

Born in SW London, Adrian went to grammar school, thereafter meeting Mike Trend, who was a director of a large chain of estate agents in North West London and a regular at Adrian's beloved Auntie's Pub in Mortlake. Michael introduced him to the profession in 1972, where he opened three offices for 'Clifford and Clifford' during his time there.
Eventually he became Mike Trend’s partner forming 'Trend and Thomas' in 1984, where he successfully practiced for 25 years.
His son went to the Royal Academy of Art and is now a special effects animator, whilst his daughter, who lives in Rickmansworth, maintains his bloodline with two grandsons!
He has had an extraordinary total of 12 business and residential addresses over the years in Rickmansworth, (which must be some kind of record!) and, not surprisingly, as a ‘reasonably’ popular chap, has an incredible network of friends and business acquaintances. He has now settled down in the wilds of Chalfont St Giles!
He has now established a stunning period office in partnership with his old friend Tony Bennett, the MD at Grosvenor’s, utilising his unparelled experience and professionalism anchored by his being a Fellow of the National association of Estate Agents for 27 years.
Adrian enjoys design, art and entertaining. Having played football, he mostly watches sport now, except for the occasional stretch on the rowing machine!

Carmen Cianciaruso

Carmen Cianciaruso

Rickmansworth PA

A successful team Coordinator, Sales driven, I worked in Trend and Thomas with Adrian in 1999 from whence I have made many friends in the area, especially, as you would imagine being Italian, I have nurtured through my close links to the restaurant and fashion worlds!
I then spent 18 years in the Airline Industry and only recently decided to take on this new challenge.
I reside in Chorleywood and was born in Rome, where I studied Languages; I then undertook a Ba Honours in Marketing and Management in London.
I have a proven record of achieving and exceeding allocated sales targets and delivering high level of customer service, (by managing a team of 10 sales agents) and through direct sales. Relationship management has been essential in my success with both internal and external customers.
One of the most important things that I’ve learnt in my working experience is that a great way to foster loyal customers is to “under promise and over deliver” and by doing this I hope I will bring my value to an already successful business, namely Grosvenor Estates, where I enjoy the property business, meeting people, organising Adrian and look forward to a long term career!
