15 Questions with… Lauren Brown

Lauren has only been with Platinum Properties a short time and was recruited as part of the Modern Apprenticeship Scheme, a scheme which Maria has widely supported having initially begun her career in the same fashion and believing very much that modern apprenticeships are the way forward for young people to gain practical experience, widening their skills base and gain a recognised qualification at the same time.

From the moment she joined Platinum Properties Lauren has been really keen and eager to progress and has thrown herself into her training with gusto.

There is something very refreshing about Lauren and her approach, her sunny personality and the fact that she is so polite and quiet, but so honest. Lauren also hides a very quick wit underneath. She is settling well into the team with lots more training to come once things return to a bit more normality!
