• Commercial Estate Agents & Property Management

Our Team

David Nolan - Director
Dave has been with Kays since leaving college back in 1982 working his way through all departments and becoming sales manager in 1990. Then in 2017 as the saying goes "he liked it that much he bought the company" when the original owner decide to retire. Dave deals with the property sales and commercial lettings providing an honest, friendly, approachable service to all his clients.

Outside of work his passion for playing amateur football and cricket has long come to an end replaced with more sedate dog walks in the lakes, cooking, red wine and socialising with friends.

RIP Charlie - The office dog
We lost Charlie suddenly on Boxing Day 2023. He joined the firm in 2017 having previously worked from home. He could often be seen wandering the office in search of dog biscuits from the girls. When he's wasn't working he loved to take longs walks and had a passion for tennis balls. He's now loving live chasing tennis balls in the sky. RIP Charlie 20/12/2012 - 26/12/23
Clemmie - The office dog
Clemmie joined the firm in 2022 as a puppy and apprentice to Charlie. She has no clearly defined role yet as she can't sit still (other than for the photograph) for longer than 5 seconds. She spends most of her time bounding round the office and previously annoying Charlie.

When she's not working Clemmie loves bounding round the house.
