Welcome to Elizabeth Gaughan Homes


I started on the property ladder at 18 years old, and I was then hooked on the property developer life. Alongside developing, my skills grew in Architectural & Interior design, and I embarked on a world of gaining as much knowledge and experience in my passion for property. I was employed in one of the biggest Estate agents at only 20 years old and progressed to area manager covering the Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire region. Coming from a predominantly sales background, I instilled into my staff the importance of qualifying potential buyers, to reduce the stress of unnecessary viewings on vendors and buyers. 
As I grew my property portfolio, I had a great understanding of how staging a property and providing the vital space individuals and families needed was crucial on gaining a sale. The selling process for property owners can be stressful, heartbreaking, and one of the happiest times of their life. I would spend many weekends spring cleaning my house, cutting the lawn, and as a mother of three hiding their toys and sending them to the park with the dog on viewing days. It takes over your life, and in my 28 years of being involved in property, and my most recent purchase in 2021, the process has not changed. 
I could never find an agent that could tick all the boxes. I would eventually be paying for a service that was my property wording, my own photography, and I would carry out all viewings just to obtain a sale. 

As my children grew up. My career progressed and I worked at Chief executive level for one of the largest property management companies, covering Nottinghamshire, the north west, Scotland and Ireland. I was learning from the best in all aspects of property law within these countries. I then became their buyer for the company, buying residential and commercial property, understanding and studying the legal packs and then bidding at auctions.
I then went back into new houses as a Commercial Director for new build developers Swallow Hill homes in Nottingham. I was in my element designing new build architectural plans, floor layouts, promoting the business from website design, company branding, the decider in the interior specifications and finish, head of Health and safety, conveyancing, the list was endless. As a business and management specialist and qualified construction site manager, I helped grow the company and staff into achieving high end specifications and finish.

As an Interior designer, I have worked across the uk designing and staging show houses, and project managing on construction sites. I worked in London and surrounding areas learning constantly from some of the industry’s best new home developers and designers.
The world of photography was changing, but leaving the estate agency service behind. A buyer should be able to view a property from the comfort of their own home. And vendors should be able to sell their home without the process effecting their health and mental wellbeing.
I am passionate at providing my clients with a one to one experience from valuation through to completion. I have worked at every level in estate agency, and experienced every stage as a buyer and vendor. With a proven and trusted reputation, and an Associate for the National Association of Estate Agents (ANAEA) my clients will receive the same bespoke service from start to finish. From a first time buyer needing guidance, to families and individuals finding their forever home.
