Award-winning estate agent

Philippa Sole

CEO & Founder

Over the years, I have been fortunate enough to expand my business organically, selecting specialist team members who complement each other, while expanding our reach into Talbot Woods and Land & New Homes. I have been working in the local area as an estate agent since I graduated from Bournemouth University in 1999 with a bachelor’s degree in Land-Based Enterprise. I’m certified by the Guild of Letting Agents and regulated by the Property Ombudsman.

Throughout this time, I’ve been responsible for listing and negotiating a significant number of high-profile transactions in the BH13 And BH14 postcodes whilst working at the international firm, Savills, and at local independent agents, Mays and Berkeleys.


Jacqui Harper

Sales Consultant

Jacqui brings a wealth of knowledge, having worked in the area’s property market for more than 20 years with well-known firms such as Mays (where Jacqui & Pippa first worked together), Hearnes in Bournemouth and 15 years with Savills in Canford Cliffs. Whilst being highly regarded in BH13, Jacqui was instrumental in securing Savills as market leader in Talbot Woods, and has subsequently put Philippa Sole firmly into the leafy suburb. Jacqui’s extensive knowledge, her little black book as valuable as the Magna Carta, and her professional and utterly charming manner makes Jacqui our very own Joanna Lumley.


Jo Jacklin

Sales Negotiator

Jo originally worked for Philippa Sole in the early days when operating as a start-up from Pippa's home office; before she re-joined us as a full time Negotiator in Spring 2023. Jo began her career in property over 15 years ago and has since worked extensively in both the residential and commercial property sectors. Her northern friendliness makes Jo fantastic at building a close rapport with clients and being able to perfectly match clients and properties.


Rebecca Brown

Head of Marketing

Rebecca has extensive experience in Brand Marketing and Promotional Partnerships working for the likes of Merlin Entertainments, The Guardian and Telegraph Media Groups, before setting up independently and working with select clients within the Travel and Property markets. Rebecca ensures Pippa’s vision and ambitions are reflected in all marketing communications, but most importantly that Philippa Sole’s client liaisons and community engagement is always a 5-star service and remains at the top of Philippa Sole’s agenda.


Sue Lehan

PA & Administrator

Sue is one of the most experienced Administrators in the Dorset property market having spent more than 30 years with Berkeleys, where she was PA to three Directors and worked alongside Pippa for 6 years. When Pippa left Berkeleys in 2016 to set up Philippa Sole Estate Agency, she quietly whispered in Sue’s ear planting the seed for her to join when the time was right. On the fifth anniversary of Philippa Sole Estate Agency, Pippa got her wish and brought Sue on board grateful for her “extensive knowledge and depth of understanding within the industry, and for her calm demeanour and proficient support”.


Rita Foglietta

Sales & Lettings Administrator

Rita joined Philippa Sole early in 2022 bringing her Italian glamour to the team. Rita provides support for both the Sales and Lettings side of the business due to her extensive personal experience of buying, selling, and letting multiple properties of her own over the years. In her previous corporate life, Rita spent 20 years in Sales Directorship roles within the publishing & exhibition sector of Bauer Media, Emma’s Diary of Life Cycle Marketing and Bounty baby shows.
