I have lived in and loved Cornwall most of my life and now have the pleasure of being married to a Falmouth girl and bringing my son up in this beautiful county. I was Educated at Truro school and Warwick university. Having previously worked for 25 years in corporate estate agency I have gained a comprehensive knowledge of both residential and commercial properties.

I am driven by a passion to provide a good old fashioned estate agency service where the emphasis is on the client and "going the extra mile" to ensure the smoothest possible move. For me there is no greater satisfaction than seeing my clients move on and handing them the keys to their dream home.

PAULA HAUGHTON - Executive Director/Business Owner

I moved to Cornwall in 1987, initially coming to Falmouth for a short holiday. I fell in love with the County and decided not to leave!

I have a wealth of experience marketing and selling all types of property throughout Cornwall. My love of dealing with houses began back in 1989 with Peter De Savary alongside Falmouth's new colourful harbour development at Port Pendennis. I went on to work for a large corporate agency, starting as assistant negotiator, rising into management. Consistently, for approaching 30 years I have proven myself to be among the top performing estate agents in the South West.

It is hard to believe that it has been 8 fast paced years since opening our own company. It is an absolute pleasure to work with my Co directors and our dynamic team every single day. Together, with all our hard work and enthusiasm, Lewis Haughton Wills has developed and expanded into one of Cornwall's top performing Estate agencies.

I thoroughly enjoy being part of Lewis Haughton Wills, and have over 30 years' experience in the local property market working from a small independent to a large corporate agent.

LYNN ELSON - New Homes & Development Coordinator/Senior PA

I have lived in Falmouth for over 20 years having moved into the area with my young family to live by the sea. I saw my family grow up in the area and fast found Falmouth to become home.
Before I had my family, I gained much experience by working in administration roles for both Estate Agents and Solicitors (mainly in conveyancing) in West Sussex and Somerset. Over the years whilst living in the Falmouth area I started and ran my own business for 10 years, followed by a further 8 years with Cornwall Council working for the Cornwall Adult Education Service. My two roles were teaching ITEC qualification courses to young adults, and more majorly as an Administration Officer dealing with the running of the Falmouth Adult Education Hub and all that it entailed.

I have now come full circle back to Estate Agency having joined Lewis Haughton Wills Administration Team four years ago. I have mainly worked with the Sales Team but have also assisted the Lettings Team in busy periods, so am happy to adapt myself where needed.
I thoroughly enjoy working for this dynamic, fast moving Company and look forward to whatever the future brings.

I enjoy the challenge my role brings and no two days are the same within the office, which keeps the job extremely interesting and enjoyable.

In my free time I enjoy swimming, and discovering new places in Cornwall. Originally from Essex it is lovely to get out in the countryside and discover more of this beautiful county.

Over the year friendships have blossomed within the organisation and I am so extremely proud to have been accepted into this hardworking, professional, friendly and diverse work family.
