Introducing our team…


Simon Ware, MNAEA MARLA, Director

I have worked in the business for nearly 30 years and I have a vast knowledge of the Taunton property market. I am a member of both the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA) and the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA). I love being an independent agent which gives me the freedom to provide the best service possible and to adjust quickly to ever changing market conditions. Another passion of mine is raising professional standards within the industry, which is still, believe it or not, unregulated. Estate agents handle probably your biggest asset, so why wouldn't you place it in the hands of an agent that is not only qualified, but a member of a redress scheme. I am both. I am a father to two boys and a girl which keeps me busy outside of work and like most men, I enjoy watching football and motor racing.

Nicola Ware, FCCA MARLA, Director

I have worked within the industry for nearly ten years and I pride myself on my attention to detail and service I offer to my landlord and tenant clients alike. I am a qualified accountant which is probably where I gained my methodical approach to my business, leaving no stone unturned, which is essential in todays litigous world. I work closely with my tight knit team to provide a professional and reliable service, which is tailormade to each and every landlord on our books, of which they run into the hundreds. As well as my FCCA qualification (Fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants), I am a member of The Association of Residential Letting Agents (MARLA) and The Property Ombudsman for your piece of mind. I am a mother to three children and a dog.

Martin Jacobs

Martin Jacobs, Senior Sales Negotiator

With over 20 years experience in the Residential Sales & Lettings market's all within the Somerset area, I offer a wealth of experience and knowledge to both vendors and purchasers. I have lived within the Somerset area all of my life and I am now based in Street with my wife, four daughters, three cats and a very large man cave! Even after all this time in the industry, there is nothing better than matching people to the right properties and agreeing sales/purchases for clients, meeting new vendors and purchasers every day which always keeps the job interesting and varied. "I am very happy to be part of the Ware & Co ethos and look forward to being part of their continued success locally".

Zoe Male

Zoe Male, Administrator

After working in the healthcare sector for many years, I wanted a change. Therefore, I started working for Ware and Company in February 2018. I am responsible for tenancy applications from when tenants apply for a property through to move-in day. I am also responsible for booking property visits for current tenants and helping with general enquiries by phone, email, and face to face. After renting a property with my Partner recently, I understand the process and how tenants may be feeling during the application period, which is important. I look forward to a long and rewarding career at Ware and Company. I have a busy social life, visiting friends and family in different locations and have previously ran a half-marathon for a charity, which I aim to do again.
