Jerry Hamlyn-Eastell


During my school days, not only did I meet Toby, but after a week’s work experience at a local agency my lifelong career in property was born. Having caught the bug, I went on to broaden my experience with roles in agency, property development and a major housing association operating across London and the South East.

As one of four siblings, it is no surprise that I am never happier than when surrounded by people. Combined with my passion for property, it was inevitable that one day Hamlyn Smith would be created.

As a lifelong Brighton and Hove Albion supporter, my weekends are often spent at the Amex Stadium. Between watching the footy or playing golf, you’re most likely to find me enjoying everything our city has to offer with my wife Lucy or on uncle duties with Charlotte and Alfie.

Toby Smith


Having honed my craft at market-leading local and international property agencies, launching an estate agency felt like the natural next step. I have over 15 years’ experience working across property and financial services, and I could not be prouder to have co-founded Hamlyn Smith.

Born in Brighton, raised in Steyning and now living by Hove Park, I have a very close affinity to the local market and surrounding areas. From parks and pubs to five-a-side pitches, I like nothing more than building up a broader neighbourhood picture for my clients.

Never afraid of a challenge, Hamlyn Smith was established shortly after the arrival of my first son. Life outside of work centres around my family, our miniature Dachshund Frankie, the golf course and anywhere combining close friends, great food and cold beer.

Nush Bagiolo

Office Manager

For the last 15 years I have worked in management roles, looking after properties both in the UK and abroad. I have a passion for working with people; throughout my career I have worked in customer service based roles, so combined with my love of property and all things admin, when the opportunity arose to become office manager for Hamlyn Smith it felt like a perfect fit.

I have always been organised, both at work and in my home life; everything has a folder and I love a ‘To Do’ List. When I’m not in admin mode, I love nothing more than discovering a great local restaurant, getting stuck into a good book or chilling out with my husband and our rescue cat Pedro.

Erin Hamilton

Sales and Lettings Co-ordinator

I’ve been immersed in the Estate agency industry for over 3 years now and it’s something I truly love. Originally I worked within the lettings sector but have diversified over time into property management and sales too. I love helping people find their dream homes and, having grown up in Brighton, have a deep understanding of the local real estate market.

I am dedicated to providing exceptional service to our clients throughout the entire buying or renting process, so seeing these values reflected in Hamlyn Smith inspired me to become part of their team. My expertise, combined with my passion for helping others, make working in Estate Agency a natural fit.

In my free time, I love nothing more than meeting up with friends to explore Brighton’s most loved pubs and amusements.

Jaq Hamilton

Property Consultant

I love property and have always been intrigued by the diversity of homes available throughout our city, so assisting with property viewings at Hamlyn Smith is ideal for me. I really enjoy stepping into a new home for the first time and discovering the unique features and hidden gems it has to offer.

I’ve been living in Brighton & Hove for 30 years, and I still love the energy and buzz of the city. I am absolutely fascinated by our local architectural history and enjoy finding information about it.

When I’m not at Hamlyn Smith I work as a professional photographer. In my spare time, you can find me sailing along the Sussex coast or renovating my Victorian Hove property with my husband.
