Our Team

Managing Director and Principal

GRAHAM FAULKNER

Graham joined Home Rental Services under Bob Jackson in 2003 as letting agent and property manager. In 2014 after 11 years with the firm Graham and his wife Heather made the decision to purchase the business on Bob’s retirement.

Graham has continued as the firm’s letting agent – a position which he regards as one of the most important in any rental business – and is also available to meet new and prospective owners to talk through the services and advice that Home Rental Services can offer.

Graham’s background is in farm ownership and business management, having held directorships in both the public and private sector.
