Steve McCullough, originally from Northern Ireland, has lived in Bournemouth since 1988. His 15 year career in financial services began with Abbey Life. After working in the city he set up a recruitment agency providing specialist contractors to all the major finance companies in the UK. He sold that business in order to spend more time in Bournemouth with his children Alex and Claudia and bought Clarkes in 2003.

Steve is a homeowner and a landlord and is very knowledgeable and passionate about the housing Market. He believes the Estate Agency industry should be regulated and is determined to see Clarkes set the standard giving estate agents a better name.
