In tough times, Becky Fatemi says her instinct is to push harder.
In recent years, Rokstone has performed more strongly than ever before – proof, Fatemi believes, that hard work, tenacity and going that extra mile leads to success. The fruits of Rokstone's labours are the multi-million pound prices the team secures: now, more than a decade since the firm's inception, Rokstone has completed more than £1.5 billion worth of sales.
Fatemi does it with an all-women team of staff from diverse backgrounds. ‘I'm the only woman of colour with a shop front in prime central London,' she says. Already something of a 'celebrity agent', Fatemi is set to star with Paul Kemsley in a new Channel 4 reality show about setting up a new prime property agency.
