Manager and Owner of J. R. Hopper & Co ( Property Services) Ltd

Since November 1997 I have managed the day to day running of the Company, Personnel,  Marketing, Customer Service as well as my portfolio of clients. I  love to look after the special ones!  Always willing to spend time chatting to customers, to help them make that move from one home to another.

Joseph Hopper, founder of the company was my Great Grandfather.  I was brought up in the family business..

I returned part time to the family business in 1994 when I returned to “My Dales”, with Brian and our two boys. In 1997 after the death of my father and in the depths of the last recession, we took the opportunity of taking a Market place office in Leyburn and opening the property business.  We have since expanded this to three more offices and  our team keeps growing.

Brought up in the Yorkshire Dales on the family farm just outside Hawes. My parents Jean (Hopper) & Billy Lambert seemed to turn all work in to play or was it the other way round ? From being very small I would help at the family Auction Sales,  un-packing and labelling goods as they arrived and holding item up for sale, as my nieces do now.

Educated at Bainbridge Primary, the Wensleydale School, York College of Art & Technology, & Leicester Polytechnic.

In my “spare” time I also run my own business “Liz Lambert Ceramics” as Potter & Artist, producing hand thrown and decorated pottery. and have exhibited with the Northern Potters, nationally and internationally and selling to craft outlets across Great Britain, as well as teaching pottery classes.

Oh , and I do a bit of gardening!!
