Gerard moved to Sheffield in 2010 to study at Sheffield Hallam University. Upon the conclusion of his course he began a career in hospitality management cumulating in the overseeing of a 5-star Ski Chalet in The French Alps. Having taken his career in hospitality as far as he’d wished to go, he took on his first role in the property sector on the other side of The Pennine’s working in and around Stockport where he progressed from sales negotiator to Trainee Valuer before returning to Sheffield. Having joined MorfittSmith in February of 2017 he has since progressed to a Valuer and is now flourishing, combining his fresh approach to the tried and tested methods of our Senior Valuer and Director, John Morfitt. When not in the office, he can be found involved in all things football, equally enjoying both playing and watching the game. As a Carlisle fan, he holds no bias towards the red or blue sides of the city. He also spends much of his time in The Peak District which he states is the closest he’s found to replicating the beauty of The Lake District in which he grew up.

Oliver joined MorfittSmith earlier in the year to bring our Marketing & Photography in-house. Whether it’s a new home for sale or a house we have been letting for years, he makes sure that each and every property at MorfittSmith looks its very best. Oliver trained as a professional photographer and had a studio for a number of years, before later attending University. Both during and following his studies, he worked in estate agency and lettings fostering his love of stunning architecture, later specialising in marketing and sales management. His passion for photography and beautiful buildings eventually brought him back to property and he joined us here at MorfittSmith bringing all of his experience together.

But when he isn’t behind a lens, he is also a prop-builder, cosplayer and marksman who enjoys parkour, tai chi for broad sword and ice skating.
