Katy Tsigarides (née Bryant)


i have worked in estate agency for many years now and have always had a passion for property and a strong belief in good customer service. in 2009 we formed masonbryant and i am so proud of how far we have come. every day is so different in this industry and i relish the challenges that it can bring myself and my team, we all have one common goal which is to help our clients move home in the best way possible. i spent many years of my early working career working in the city of london, this gave me a true work ethic and i believe the experience to run my own business, as well as a deep understanding of marketing and customer first philosophy.

i am very passionate about every part of my business and the local area, but when i am not working i love to spend time with my family, friends and my fur-babies! my husband sof and i love formula one, travel and socialising – when masonbryant allows!

my business career has always been strongly within sales and marketing. whilst i am a director at masonbryant sales, along with my wife katy, i am more of a silent partner. i currently hold a senior business manager role within a communication company. my strengths are my marketing skills and my ability to understand and manage a team. whilst i can’t be with masonbryant daily, i strive to bring my experience to the team whenever we are together. i play a large part in the marketing, business running and the promotion of the business. while i have my own career as mentioned, i will always support the excellent team here at masonbryant and enjoy the times and days i am at the office helping our clients, sellers and buyers.

when i’m not focusing on work, i then share the f1 bug with my wife. after that my pleasures are my family, home time, our fur- babies and, if time allows, the odd round of golf and a holiday!

having spent 23 years of my career in london i was excited to move back to the eastbourne area when my daughter was born. i’ve always been proud of my hometown and it’s great to be near to family and the sea.

my time spent in london was predominantly in finance, although i did work in advertising and publishing for the early part of my career which, when i moved to chicago for 3 years, inspired me to study and i subsequently completed an associate degree in advertising & design.

i’ve always had a passion for property so i was delighted to join the masonbryant family in 2021. i truly believe home is where the heart so i enjoy being a part of our customers property journey and am passionate about supporting our clients every step of the way.

my interests include travel, cooking and keeping fit. i love discovering new cultures, architecture, and cuisines and when keeping fit i particularly enjoy running, yoga and cycling the local area. i have also found a recent interest in upcycling, so if it’s not shabby chic yet it might soon be!

i have been in the industry for over a decade and started out as a trainee at the age of 17. i have spent the majority of my career working in eastbourne and surrounding areas of sussex, as well as living and working in dubai.

having been local for most of my life i have good knowledge of property, schools and amenities. i have also had the privilege of buying and selling my own homes over the years, allowing me to empathise with the pressures clients may experience when undertaking similar transactions. understanding, clear communication and proactivity is key.  

i am thrilled to now be a part of the masonbryant team who collectively embrace the same enthusiasm and values towards the industry as myself, seeking excellence, care and honesty.

i love everything about travel, food and adventure, but since becoming a mum my greatest joy revolves around the precious time i spend with my family and the odd evenings i get to enjoy a glass of wine with friends.
