Meet The Team

Alex Gray

Director


Alex’s experience in the Cambridge property market is pretty much unrivalled. Having started his career back when having a mobile phone was seen as being ahead of the curve, he has seen booms and busts and sold houses on almost every street in the City. Alex has run and been influential in the largest independent agencies in the City, meaning he is knowledgeable to a level that can only be described as annoyingly high.

Chris Toynbee

Director


We would describe Chris as a doer. It doesn’t matter what it is, he grabs hold of it, understands it and then gets it done (invariably much quicker than most and really quite well). He has immersed himself in all aspects of the market - buying, renovating, developing, selling and letting. Being very efficient meant that, despite having a decent sized property investment business, Chris had some spare time, so got a job too.

Anna Logan

Lettings Director


Anna is a dog person. Do we need say any more? OK, well when it comes to lettings you will not be in safer hands than Anna. She has held senior positions in the largest independent agencies in the City and is a literal fountain of knowledge when it comes to lettings legislation. Anna even has an ARLA PropertyMark tattoo (this last bit may or may not be true). Anna is also one of the most patient people you will ever meet, a minimum requirement for working with us.

Beth Kingsley

Property Consultant


Beth joined the team as we heard she could bake, though she is also pretty good at being an estate agent. Beth is a qualified member of Property NAEA and has worked in residential sales for over 5 years, gaining valuable experience in the Cambridge property market. Her love of property has been passed down to her by growing up around builders and developers and having been ‘forced’ to watch Grand Designs (we all know it’s because she secretly loves Kevin McCloud).

Harvey Simpkins

Property Consultant


Harvs, Harvo, Harvi five-0. These are just some of the names we call Harvey, whether he likes it or not (and we’re pretty sure he doesn’t). But what we do know is that you’ll like Harvey, everyone does. A calm head with an ability to cut to the chase when needed, he will provide our clients with support and guidance whether they are landlords, tenants, vendors, or buyers.

Ellyn Smith

Property Consultant


Ellyn gets things done. In an industry where progress and efficiency are so valuable, we’re delighted to have an expert in both of those areas as part of our team. Having started out managing a lettings portfolio for a major Cambridge College, Ellyn decided she had completed residential lettings and wanted another challenge. After starting out in sales administration, she worked her way up to senior negotiator, now with 10 years’ experience under her belt (even though she tells us she is still only 21).

Jamie Morris

Senior Property Consultant


We talk a lot about the value of experience in our industry, and Jamie is the personification of this, with 20 years of selling across Cambridge, Suffolk and Norfolk.
 At Gray & Toynbee, Jamie will continue to cement our sales presence and support us, tapping into his extensive experience, in expanding the business further. He’ll bring valuable insight and knowledge coupled with infectious, occasionally irritating, enthusiasm.

Lauren Blake

Director


After studying Film and TV production at Leeds University, Lauren decided she didn’t want to hang out with Hollywood stars and would rather be an estate agent, and the industry is a better place for it! Approaching her third decade in the industry, she is very well-known and respected in the local market. Having previously held directorship at one of the largest independent agencies in the city, Lauren adds a wealth of experience, knowledge, and skills to the team. Annoyingly, Lauren also likes to sing and dance, no matter the time of day and no matter how much we try to discourage it.

Angel Walton

Property Consultant


“I gym more so I can eat more” – a personal mantra of Angel’s we can all get behind. When not eating, or going to the gym, Angel will be supporting our sales services in our Waterbeach office. After 5 years as a Gunner in the Royal Artillery and then time working in the fitness industry, Angel wanted something exciting to do and property came calling. Friendly, calm and considered, she’ll provide a welcomed steady hand when needed.

David Broadbent

Property Manager


David loves a pun. Even if no one else does. And we usually don't. 
Enthusiastic and detail-orientated, David has spent over a decade in customer care and facilities management, providing our Landlords and Tenants with a safe pair of very experienced hands. When not managing properties David enjoys cooking a good meal and watching a bad film. Or maybe it's the other way around. We aren't sure.
