Stephen and Tony Browne created Stephenson Browne in 1999 and has subsequently overseen the Company expansion over the last 20 plus years from a single sales office in Alsager to become the leading Independent Estate and Letting Agent in South Cheshire and North Staffs. Stephen has great experience in both Residential Sales and Lettings having worked extensively in both fields within the Company. Having a foundation and track record spanning many years Stephen can offer knowledgeable, helpful and strategic advice in all matters property related.

Having worked his way up the ranks at the countries largest estate agency chain to board of management level, Tony decided to go it alone in 1999 with fellow colleague Stephen Bird. Together they created Stephenson Browne and grew into the areas most recognised brand in both sales and lettings. Now focused on acquisition and growth Tonys role involves further business opportunities and fine tuning whilst overseeing the sales branches at all four locations.

I'm Craig and people often refer to me as the one with the hair who wears odds socks, have to stand out don’t you! It may be hard to believe however I was tasked with taking over the big man’s shoes (Tony Browne) in 2015 and took over the realms in Alsager. Having continued the branches strong success in the area, I opened the Crewe office in 2018, establishing them as the number one agent in Crewe within two very interesting years! I was honoured to be made the Sales Director for the company in 2020, must be doing something right I guess. I love property and am often told that my passion/enthusiasm comes across in a very positive light to our clients. I’ve been in the industry for over 15 years and am used to delivering a consistent level of high standards. Right now, as well as overseeing the company’s sales branches, I am very excited to be working on opening our new office which is coming soon in Congleton. I’m fortunate to be responsible for the running of a very hard working team of Estate Agents across the board and wherever you are looking to sell or buy, I really do believe you are in the safest of hands with ourselves, an award-winning team who look forward to aiding your property requirements!


Hello everybody, I’m Jade, the branch manager of the incredible team in Newcastle under Lyme. I’ve been fascinated by the property market since the ripe young age of 15 when I was asked to choose a profession and company for work experience. I chose a local independent agency and quickly wrapped my head around the selling and buying procedure, which resulted in me being re-employed as the Saturday girl and here I am almost 15 years later! Being an estate agent isn’t just a ‘job’ to me – it’s a passion and love hold close to my heart and I pride myself on excelling in, wherever possible.

I am supported by an outstanding team (although we are more like family) who all share my same love and desire to provide an exceptional service to all we meet. We work together fantastically well and (in my own words) all make up part of a very well-oiled machine. We’re always excited to welcome new customers whilst not forgetting to keep our current clients, keeping them updated each step of the way – they become more like friends!


Hello! I’m Matt and I look after the day-to-day running of Stephenson Browne’s flagship office in Alsager.

I’ve been working in the industry for just short of 10 years and in that time I have worked for both independent agents and also a larger corporate firm and I am very grateful to be part of such a wonderful team here in Alsager.

I love my job, meeting clients both old and new and back in 2016 I won the national ESTAS, ‘People’s choice’ award presented me by the one and only Phil Spencer for my commitment to the industry from both client feedback and reviews. In my spare time when we’re not busy selling houses I’m either on the golf course looking for my ball, keeping the neighbours on their toes with my drums or spending time with my partner Lindsey and Lola the cat.

'Being passionate about what you do and enjoying your job is what drives me to work hard and leads to success’.

As a self professed, workaholic, Sarah is Manager of our Alsager and Newcastle Lettings branches. She has worked in the industry for 14 years and joined Stephenson Browne almost 4 years ago.

The industry requires lots of knowledge in compliance and housing legislation, and Sarah is qualified at Level 3 and Level 4 in Residential Lettings and Management. Supported by two great teams, each focus on providing a positive experience for our clients.


Hi, I'm Jenny and head up the lettings team here at Crewe. To say I love property is a bit of an understatement… I REALLY love property…. But not as much as Chocolate! Having worked in senior retail management previously, I switched to property within an Independent Agent 16 years ago and have never looked back. From part-time Sales Negotiator to Lettings Branch Manager now, I have spent time between sales and lettings both with independent and corporate agents but now remain where my passion lies. Truly independent! Truly Lettings!

My team…. As there is no I in team I guess you should know more about who makes it all happen. Leading the way in accounts is Louisa who has held the purse strings for over 10 years and also acts as deputy manager. Emma is our long-serving powerhouse property manager who looks after property maintenance, inspections (with James) and refurbs with Alison. There lies our gas safe and renewal Co-Ordinator and not forgetting Poppy who is our number one go getting tenant finder and move in Co-Ordinator.

So as you can see, a place for everything and everything in its place. A tight-knit team running a tight-knit ship!


Hi, I’m Alannah, I grew up in Sandbach and still live here, so to be based in a branch in my home town is fantastic, I love this area and property and have an excellent understanding of the local property market.

I left university in 2013 and one month later I landed a job in estate agency and I haven’t looked back since! I started off for one of the leading corporate agents however I always wanted to work for an independent agent and so in 2015 when I started for Stephenson Browne that’s when the fun began! Working for an independent agent allows close contact with our client’s day in, day out and here in Sandbach we are known for our excellent customer service, and it is certainly what we pride ourselves on.

My team has a wealth of knowledge and over 30 years of experience between us- Alison, Cathy, Emma or June are always available at the end of the phone or in branch to offer friendly and honest advice.

Alison and Emma are our full-time negotiators, Alison is our longest-serving member of staff and is known for getting difficult sales across the line! Emma is welcoming and professional and always keen to negotiate a deal! Cathy is my right arm helping to organise everything in the office such as the property listings and June is our fantastic viewing rep who is always on hand for any questions our viewers might have. We all look forward to helping you with your property needs.

I have worked in Estate Agency for over 30 years, both in Sales and Lettings and for the last 20 of those years working for Stephenson Browne.

I have found my niche in Lettings but can assist on any property related matters. I head up the Stephenson Browne Lettings office in Sandbach along with my small but very enthusiastic team of Jo Lloyd and Jenny Moors.

Jo, our Lettings Administrator, has been with Stephenson Browne for almost 10 years and knows the Lettings industry inside out. She is always at the end of the phone to answer any queries with a smile!

Jenny, our Property Portfolio Manager, is very hands on and deals with all rental related maintenance issues, applications and inventories, again a valued member of the team.

Stephenson Browne Lettings are an integrated part of the Sandbach community and welcome all Landlords and Tenants warmly to our office, whether for advice or just a general chat and a cup of coffee.

We know that you will agree that you have chosen the right Agent to deal with your property matters.

Social Media

Hi! I am Oliver , and my role within Stephenson Browne is that of Social Media and IT Consultant, so what this means is that I work away in the background on all things IT related. But more importantly I also run the Social Media pages so we can be found on all the major Social Media channels. I am well known within the company for the shirts that I wear as I am not a fan of the plain shirt and firmly you believe you can’t beat a bit of colour and something to make you standout from the crowd and this is the mentality I have with my work and aim to make us stand out from the crowd and show what we have to offer and how we can help you no matter your property needs. I love to get involved in our local communities so if you have a Social Media opportunity for us feel free to send it across to myself
