Our Team

Julie Spayne,

Julie Spayne

Julie has over twenty five years of experience in lettings and management and has owned and run Devon Rose with her husband Nick since 2007. Julie began her property career in Plymouth working for smaller independent companies before moving to London to hold senior positions in major London property firms, the last of which was running a prestigious 1,500 unit national portfolio for one of the UK’s leading companies. Julie is a fellow of the Association of Residential Lettings Agents (ARLA) and has a Certificate in Residential Lettings Management so you’ll be hard pressed to find anyone in Devon who knows more about the property industry! Passionate, fair-minded and thoroughly professional Julie loves her work and looks forward to meeting you - landlord or tenant. In her spare time Julie is never more than a few feet away from her Kindle and if she’s not reading she’s most likely in the kitchen baking with her granddaughter.

Nick Spayne,

Nick has worked in lettings and management since he and Julie bought Devon Rose in 2007, after he left the Royal Navy. Nick joined the navy as a teenager and served over thirty years of service, leaving as a Lieutenant Commander. He visited every continent in the world and was proud to have served in many hot spots including the Falklands, Adriatic and Gulf Wars. He has added to the many transferable skills and abilities from his time in the forces by becoming a Member of ARLA and qualified Domestic Energy Assessor and more recently a qualified Retrofit Assessor. This involves advising on measures to improve energy efficiency in properties. Away from work Nick is a keen jogger, swimmer, cyclist and a convert to SUP boards.
