Meet the Team

Jason K Scales

Managing Director
Jason was employed by his father as a 17-year-old office junior back in 1991 and 30 years later he is now the proud owner of Vikings. He has stood the test of time and embraces changes in the industry with a passion and desire for his business to thrive. His 30 years of experience in sales and lettings – and expertise and knowledge of the local market – are invaluable to sellers, buyers and landlords alike. A specialist in property investment, Jason is only too pleased to advise landlords and developers on how to get the very best out of their investment. Jason’s friendly, personable and common-sense approach to estate agency helps make his clients feel they are in safe hands when dealing with every aspect of the property industry. As Jason says: ‘The Vikings Way’ is about putting you, the customer, first. Listening to your needs and, most importantly, dedicating time to you to ensure you get the very best service you and your property deserve, a mantra Jason aims to maintain for the next 30 years…

Helen Bloomfield

Sales & Office Manager

Helen was Jason’s first appointment when he took over the business in 2018. Helen is everything that epitomises The Vikings Way. She is front of house and her customer care is second to none – the number of gifts she receives from buyers and sellers is testament to that! With a background in estate agency and the public sector industry, Helen always makes time for her clients making them feel reassured and comfortable. Her infectious personality, honest valuation style, clever negotiating skills and persistent sales progression are what make Helen an invaluable asset to VIKINGS and all its clients.

Jamie Scales

Senior Property Consultant

Jamie, Jason’s younger brother, re-joined the family business in 2020 after two years working elsewhere in the industry – a useful exercise, which has proved invaluable. Having previously worked for the family since 2006 he has now come back with a fresh perspective and new ideas in moving the business forward, namely, his expertise in social media marketing – a must for any modern-day estate agent, seller and landlord. As Jamie says, “It certainly was an eye opener leaving the family fold and experiencing how other agents operate. I can honestly say I am glad to be back in the family business. I like the transparency and traditional values that Vikings has always maintained. I hope I have now added that extra ingredient by introducing innovative social media marketing ideas to the business, which will help to keep us at the forefront of the local property market. Jamie is highly regarded in both sales and lettings, so rest assured that his knowledge will serve you well in whichever service you require.
