Michael Keilthy - DIRECTOR

I have worked in the industry since 1989 mainly in the city of Brighton and Hove. I have worked for both corporate and independent businesses and have gained great knowledge of our fantastic local area and varied properties types.

What drives me is being a property professional, giving the best advice to all clients, building the best estate agency in the area and providing a first-class service to all customers.

I enjoy spending as much time as possible in the garden and being a massive fan of the Sussex countryside, I love long walks with my wonderful wife and four children.


Ryan Alderson - SENIOR Negotiator

I had been working in the industry since 2016, prior to joining Stanfords, in lettings and sales both of which have been a great learning experience.

What I love most about the job is that you can change not just one person’s life but so many when you show them the property, the purchaser falls in love with it and hopefully makes their future that much brighter. From the moment you arrange the viewing to the moment you hand over the keys, it is such an exhilarating journey.

In this day and age you see such a variety of properties, ranging from modern contemporary new builds to traditional periodic buildings. I enjoy meeting new buyers and showing them around. You never know what the turn of a key can bring…



I was given the opportunity to work for Stanford’s in May 2021 and have loved every minute of it. I work with a great team who are always there to help and teach me along the way. Having already worked within the property industry I have broad range of knowledge and always willing to learn as it comes.

I love meeting with new clients and interacting with people and taking pride in helping them find their forever home, it’s so rewarding.

In my spare time I love going to music festivals, travelling and socialising with my friends.


Kirsty Stanley ARLA - Property Manager

I have been working in property management since January 2013, I completed my ARLA qualifications in February 2016 whilst working for a corporate company. I have always wanted to work for an independent company which is why my recent move to join the team at Stanford’s was the perfect decision for me.

I feel like working in property management gives you a sense of achievement, which encourages and motivates me to work hard every day.

In my spare time I like to spend time with family and friends, I also love travelling to new places and exploring different countries.
