Meet the Team

Paul Shinerock - Managing Director & Partner

In 1957 at the age of two, Paul moved to Purley with his parents and three siblings. His father, a keen developer, built many homes including their own residence in the area over the many decades which sparked Paul's keen interest in property.

In his early twenties after having purchased his first home in 1977 Paul decided it was time to sell, however as opposed to hiring a property conveyancer Paul went it alone, utilising the skills and knowledge he amassed through his father, carrying out all of the conveyancing and legal work himself, this gave Paul his first taste of selling property, subsequently he has never looked back since.

In the years following, Paul met a local estate agent named Joanne who later became his wife and partner at Shinerocks.

Together, Joanne, Paul and the excellent team, offer a wealth of experience and local knowledge of the property market, providing an unrivaled, personalised estate agency service.


Jo Shinerock - Director & Partner

Jo started her career in property by chance. Working on a temporary contract for an estate agent in the surveying department, where she was quickly offered a full time position.

Having bought and sold many properties herself, Jo built a clear and veracious understanding of the issues involved in the buying and selling process, not just from the actions involved but the complexities on a personal level.

By 1995, Paul and Jo opened ShineRocks, at a time when most estate agents were corporate entities, offering a standardised service with an emphasis on meeting targets. Paul and Jo wanted to offer their clients a personalised service with open, transparent advice based on years of experience in Purley and the surrounding areas.

Since its foundation, Shinerocks have continued to push their ethos, providing a service unlike any other.


Claire Marshall - Operations Manager

Claire originally trained in Hotel Management and had a long successful career in London with Intercontinental Hotels.

Having had two children, Claire looked for a complete change in her career. A daughter of an Architect, Claire had a passion for Architecture and Interior Design from a very young age. Estate agency was therefore an obvious career path for her to take, combining her passion with her transferable skills, and this was reflected in her first estate agency interview where she was offered a position on the spot.

Claire has enjoyed working at Shinerocks over many years and in various roles. In 2021 she was promoted to her current position of Operations Manager, assisting the Directors and the sales team in all aspects of sales and the day to day running of the business.


Nathaniel Dunkley - Sales Valuer

Having embarked on his successful Estate Agency journey almost a decade ago, Nathaniel, an avid football fan has always been excited by goals! Sales is more than just the personal reward when it comes down to selling homes for him, it is his passion.

Nathaniel believes that estate agencies handle the most valuable purchases we make being homes for our families or even investments. Therefore, in selling properties, Nathaniel always takes care to do the best for vendors and buyers alike with a proven track record and testimonials to match.

Alongside his career, Nathaniel enjoys travelling and appreciates being a Surrey resident taking advantage of the many countryside walks. With a wealth of local knowledge, Nathaniel would be delighted to help you with any and all of your property needs.

Mrs H-W

Having tried a couple estate agents to sell our house, with no result, we tried ShineRocks. Paul Shinerock was realistic in his valuation, which others had not been and we had a number of viewings. A Christmas present was accepting a very good offer. Unfortunately, the buyer dragged his heels and then at the point of exchange decided to...

Mr P

A great service offered by both Paul and Claire. Sometimes the best thing an agent can do is to convince you to accept an offer and to encourage you to pay more to get the house of your dreams.

Hi Caire, Can you say a massive 'thank you' to Paul for coming to see me. He really gave me some things to think about that had just not crossed my mind.

Dear Paul We are at last beginning to see some order in our new home and have time to catch breath. The move was challenging to say the least as we were downsizing dramatically and had too much to fit in prior to having an extension to create two more rooms and allow us to convert an existing one into a utility room. We would like to take...
