Meet The Team
CARL TEMME (MNAEA)
Carl became an estate agent in 1995 and together with Steve English, founded Temme English in May 2010.
Carl is particularly proud of having established a successful business during challenging trading conditions and puts the success down to a combination of working with great people, undying enthusiasm and hard work. He cites the growing use of technology as the biggest and fastest moving change during his time in the industry.
He says that “meeting new and interesting people” is one of the most enjoyable aspects to his role and that estate agency is the “perfect career for him and that there is no way he would do anything else.”
He wouldn’t be drawn on the funniest or strangest things that have happened to him during his career other than to say “There have been a few but they will have to remain secret!”
Away from work, Carl enjoys time with his wife and their three young children, although the occasional round of golf is never far away!
Looking to the future, Carl is focused on making Temme English a respected name and the “agent of choice” throughout Essex.
STEVE ENGLISH (MNAEA)
Like Carl, Steve became an estate agent in 1995 on what was then called the Youth Training Scheme (YTS). He joined forces with Carl in 2010 and founded Temme English.
Steve recognises the importance of relationships with clients and customers and enjoys helping them during what can be a very tense and stressful time. He values the start to finish nature of the business which commences from the initial valuation right through to the day of completion and places great emphasis on guiding the transaction past any hurdles that may arise.
Steve believes that the levels of customer service have improved significantly during his time in the industry and that the internet provides the biggest change and opportunity for everyone.
Like Carl, Steve has the ambition of building Temme English into a leading estate agency business within the areas covered and is very proud of what they and the team have achieved to date having started from scratch in May 2010.
Away from work, Steve enjoys walking Tilly the dog and spending time with his wife Hayley and their children Rosie who was born in November 2013 and Stanley who a born in October 2017.
NATHAN PROCTOR (Lettings Director)
Nathan has been an estate agent for over Thirty years and joined Carl and Steve in 2012 to open their Colchester office.
Originally this office was based in Middleborough Colchester, but because of the success of the company, bigger premises were required, and we swiftly moved into Crouch Street Colchester which is a fantastic looking office in a very desirable location.
Nathan believes that the development and use of the internet is the biggest change he has seen during his career and is excited at the future possibilities for communication and marketing that the online world brings.
During his career, Nathan has experienced many situations but describes accompanying a viewing whilst the owners were still in bed as one of the most bizarre!
Away from work, Nathan is a family man and he enjoys spending time with his wife and three children. Playing golf is another passion and Thailand tops his list of “must visit” destinations.
Nathan’s ambitions are to successfully grow the company and create new opportunities for staff to develop and grow.
In January of 2019 Nathan became the Director of our Lettings department which so far has become an integral part of Temme English success and growth.
