Cally Miller is the office manager. Cally has a BA degree in Accountancy from the University of Birmingham and provides great attention to detail. She handles most of the correspondence to and from the office and looks after our daily emails but like everyone else at Mervyn Smith she chips in arranging and carrying out property viewings. Away from the office a lot of her personal life is actually spent sorting out the lives of her three daughters!
