Meet the Estate Agents behind Trigg & Co Isle of Wight

Keith Trigg

Managing Director

My first day in agency was the same time Margaret Thatcher was elected prime minister some 40 years ago, and I have loved every minute of it. My aim is to be the most recommended Estate Agent on the Isle of Wight, providing exceptional customer service, delivering results and bring fresh ideas to the Island property market. I look forward to Trigg & Co helping to make your move an enjoyable and positive experience.

Rhys Burtenshaw

Sales Branch Manager

I moved to the Island at a young age and grew up in Ventnor. After furthering my education on the mainland gaining a BA Hons Marketing Management and working in Estate agency in Southampton and Emsworth, I decided to return to the Island. I started with Trigg & Co on Day 1. Island property is hugely varied, and the fast paced, proactive approach that Trigg & Co has adopted means a day is certainly never boring. After 8 years in the industry, I still love the thrill of securing the next sale!

Julie Davies

Lettings Branch Manager

I have worked within the property industry for many years now, having lived and worked on the Mainland and in France before relocating to the Island over ten years ago. I favour the fast paced environment Lettings has to offer and enjoy helping clients overcome the challenges that the ever changing market can present. I have gained a wealth of experience during my career and enjoy passing my knowledge on to assist both Landlords and Tenants. Trigg & Co offer some unique products for landlords that no other Island agent can offer.

Simon Crates

Assistant Manager

I have worked in the estate agency industry for over 5 years and lived on the island my whole life – so I have a great understanding of the local market, Island homes and the great lifestyle it brings. I enjoy the challenges every day brings as it’s very rewarding helping all our clients achieve their dream home.

I’m always learning something new and get satisfaction from overcoming the various obstacles that sometimes inevitably arise in the buying and selling process.

Paul Harrop

My estate agency career started working for Keith over 10 years ago! My responsibility at Trigg & Co is to ensure that we market your home better than anyone else. With our Market Leading strategy with excellent customer service which is rated on Trustpilot as 5 star, I’m confident that we will achieve the best possible price for your home.

I grew up on the Island and live in Whitwell with my family, and I love the unique lifestyle the Isle of Wight offers. Its one of the most beautiful parts of the country and I’m proud to call it home.


Mark Smith

Sales Advisor

I was born and grew up on the Island so have great local knowledge, and couldn’t think of a better place to buy a home, be it a weekend retreat , first time buy or a family residence. I have worked in customer services for over 15 years and passionate about providing great client care. Working in the fast paced and proactive team at Trigg & Co means I am helping pair people with their perfect home all day long, there is nothing more rewarding than leaving at the end of the day knowing you have helped people find their dream home.

Debby Hallett

Branch Administrator

My first introduction into Estate Agency came in the early 1990’s, which I loved and although I then found my career moving into other areas, I have also worked within residential lettings and more recently, assisted my husband with a holiday rental agency on the Island.

Having lived on the Island all my life, I am extremely passionate of its hidden qualities and natural beauty and can fully relate to anyone wishing to move here, as it really is a lovely place to live! I love the property industry and working for Trigg & Co.


Elaine Gardner

Property Administrator

Having been born on the Isle of Wight, I moved away in the late 1980’s, but have recently moved back to the Island and I am enjoying my new life here. During my career on the mainland I worked for BWW, Mercedes Benz and in the Private Aviation and Luxury Yacht sector, developing a high standard of customer service along the way.

I very much enjoy working with people to find ‘the perfect rental property’ be it a first-time home for island residents or a family relocating to our beautiful Island.


Grace Barnes

Lettings Administrator

I first got the opportunity to work in Estate Agency back in 2012, which was when I first met Keith. Four years later, my life took a different path and after a few years away, I knew I wanted to return. 

I was born in Godshill and have lived on the Isle of Wight my whole life. I have a young daughter and I love taking her to explore all different areas of this beautiful Island.

I pride myself on being professional and approachable and I love helping people, whether it be finding them a house to call home, or helping to solve issues which inevitably arise working in this industry. I love a challenge and so this is why I love working where I do. 

Tom Venables

Professional Photographer

I was born and brought up on the Island and became passionate about photography at an early age. I studied FDA Action Photography where I developed skills in the various fields of photo journalism and after graduating, I went on to complete the final year of the BA (Hons) in Photography at Plymouth University where I developed a natural and technical style.

I joined Trigg & Co with a brief to have the best photography for any Island estate agent and to create virtual tours that would be a first on the Island.

Chris Treasure

Holiday Lettings Director

I have worked in the Holiday lettings market for many years, with independent local agencies and with large national companies. I grew up on the Island but moved away for work and was drawn back to the Isle of Wight 12 years ago, having worked predominantly in the West Country.

Previous roles in Event Management and Adventure Holidays offered great opportunities to travel and see some interesting parts of the world. I’ve always enjoyed working in the property market and believe that excellent customer service should be standard when dealing with people’s homes and their holidays. Being involved from the very beginning with Wight Holiday Lettings, I’m very excited about the future growth and journey for the company

Special Agent Trigg

Secret Position

Rarely seen in the office, but an essential part of the Trigg set-up nonetheless. Island based, travels incognito in an unbranded company car. May be in some way related to Keith Trigg but he keeps his past a closely guarded secret. Some say he is a direct descendant of Sherlock Holmes and has memorised the address and value of every property on the Island. All we know is he is called AGENT TRIGG.
