Our Team

Shane Cuddington, Director
34 years experience

Shane Cuddington


Since 1989 I have been selling houses for the Hastings public, working for two local estate agencies. I successfully managed one of those agencies for nearly a decade and after helping to make that office one of the most well-known and successful agencies in Hastings, I decided to open PCM. I am passionate about the industry and my beloved hometown of Hastings, where I have lived my entire life, having brought up my two children who like myself have attended local schools. To say my roots are deep in the town would be an understatement. My role as a director of PCM is the main valuer. Over 30 years of selling houses in Hastings I don't think there is a street in the town where I have not either sold or valued a property. I have always believed that a successful valuer should have both local knowledge and experience of selling all property types. They must also, more importantly, understand the individual client’s needs. This is truly where my strengths lie. As a client it will be of great reassurance to know that your home will be valued by one of the founders of PCM. Both myself and Blake believe that our clients are the most important people in our business. I believe in the highest standards of client care, feedback, and most importantly honesty. I look forward to valuing your home, and dealing with you for many years to come.

Since 1998 I have been an estate agent. I also, like Shane, worked for two local estate agencies in Hastings. One of which after successfully helping to move many people I was made a partner. However, I always felt that I wanted to open my own estate agency setting standards of my own. PCM is allowing me to follow my ambition. My role as a director in PCM is to look after all the clients that are looking for a property to buy. I have fulfilled this role for the past 26 years and specialise in this field. I have an ability to match people to a property. I also like my co-founder believe in working very hard and conscientiously for my clients, to enable them to find the perfect home to live in. Over the last 26 years I don't believe there has been another estate agent that has successfully found homes for as many clients as myself. I am 100% office based making sure that we are always delivering the incredibly high standards we expect at PCM by being involved in every aspect of the day to day running of the branch. I get great enjoyment and job satisfaction from handing over keys to my clients on the day of completion knowing that they are happy with the home that I have found them. Outside of the business I take great pride in my young family with my wife and two children and also participating in many local based sports including running, obstacle course racing, boxing and making a contribution to local charities wherever possible also.
