Property Expert Carl Hemming is the driving force behind ginger, the boutique-style Estate Agency that’s played a major role in transforming the way homes are bought and sold in and around Balsall Common. Since launching Ginger at the beginning of 2016 with a refreshing new approach, Carl’s innovative Estate Agents and Property Consultancy coerced other agents in the area to review their approach to customer service and marketing.
Beyond his work, Carl is widely-known throughout Balsall Common as the face and voice of The Balsall Common Festival, the Balsall Common Lions community bonfire, both of which attract thousands of visitors each year. He is also known for his broadcasting work at Balsall Radio.
Carl moved to Balsall Common in 2008 and quickly immersed himself in community life, with a three-year stint as Chairman of Centre Stage, the local amateur dramatics group. Then, having acted as event MC for the Balsall Common Festival from the beginning, his role expanded dramatically in 2015, during the transformation of the event, when he accepted the role of Party in the Park Team Leader. Carl and his team put together an impressive timetable of live entertainment across multiple stages and arenas, in addition to managing a successful Balsall Finds the Voice competition, which runs throughout the summer each year.
Carl’s interests also include musical theatre, where he enjoys performing with local societies, plus motorsport, where he happens to be an established racing driver, with a background in Formula Ford racing. He has rubbed shoulders with many of today’s Formula 1 drivers and is also a qualified driver coach.
All that said, however, Carl’s main focus and full-time passion in life is the residential property market, as he explains:
Carl Hemming the Property Expert – Carl’s Journey
“I started out in the property industry 20 years ago, joining our family business which was founded in 1970, buying and selling residential properties throughout the UK.”
“Working closely with homeowners was a key part of the role and I desperately wanted to make every home-moving journey as smooth, timely and hassle-free as possible. Building relationships, understanding personal circumstances and all the lifestyle reasons for moving home has been central to our success.”
“The decision to create Ginger was driven initially by customers telling me I should take my skills into Estate Agency. If I was going to do this though, I felt it must be all about setting some new benchmarks for the industry. The upshot of those early conversations was months of planning and lots of hard work creating an exciting business model. The end result was Ginger and we’re incredibly proud of everything the brand stands for.”
