Franchise Director

Mark Heycock

Mark joined the Campbells team in June 2006 and has been a key member of the team ever since. Working the first few years in a rising market then throughout a tough recession, he very quickly gained a wealth of experience in the property business.

Your reputation proceeded you and it was not unfounded at all. From our first meeting, it was clear you listened to what we had to say, maintained a friendly but most professional approach.

Carole, BraunstonMay 2024

Great service, very professional but personal also. Mark held our hands through the whole process, which had a few bends along the way, but he kept the train rolling.

Debbie, DaventryMay 2024

Another 5 star performance from Campbells.They seem to find the right buyers for the right property that’s why we keep using them. Mark and the rest of the staff work hard to get the right people through the door and when the sale has been agreed they see it over the line. Always spot on.

Declan, DaventryMay 2024

We are first time buyers and Mark Haycock has been nothing short of brilliant in the entire process of purchasing our first home.

There were some frustrating delays on our own end, but he was always there to help and advise. Further to this, it didn't feel like we were on our own in the process, which was reassuring as first time buyers.

Matthew and Alice, DaventryMay 2024

The service throughout was excellent and Mark went the extra mile to ensure we got to our dream home. I would recommend Campbells any time.

Philip and Victoria, DaventryApril 2024

Mark Heycock and Campbells recently sold our parents’ property. I would use them again without hesitation. Mark was professional and highly efficient. He behaved with integrity always doing what he said he would promptly and with sensitivity.

Sue, Nether HeyfordApril 2024

Chelsea, DaventryApril 2024

Mark joined the Campbells team in June 2006 and has been a key member of the team ever since. Working the first few years in a rising market then throughout a tough recession, he very quickly gained a wealth of experience in the property business.

Mark served with the British Army for 27 years in a front-line infantry regiment. He travelled the world and spent many years in various trouble spots. He enjoyed it, but knew that as he got older, he would need to find something else to do as a career.

“After serving 27 years in the British Army with a front-line infantry regiment, being bounced around the world at short notice was interesting, exciting and very often an exhilarating way to spend the younger years of my life.

At the peak of my Army career I had reached the rank of Warrant Officer Class 1 and had spent many years in various trouble spots worldwide. I decided at the age of 43 it was time grow up and start working towards a new career.”

During that time, he’s enjoyed the heady days of a rising market and survived a tough recession, whilst all the time gaining invaluable experience. And just three months in, Mark was the first associate to join the new Campbells franchise model, which he now heads up.

So now, not only does he look after his clients, helping and supporting them every step of the way, but Mark is also responsible for the welfare of the team. A role which he thoroughly enjoys and is well-suited to.

“I often call on my experiences of negotiating and managing in the British Army within my day-to-day role, particularly when it comes to dealing with sellers and buyers who are going through a difficult negotiation or sales process, or when emotions are running high.

They’re also particularly helpful within the team, especially on Monday mornings.”

Within the team, one thing that you will soon notice about Mark is his ability to stay calm at all times no matter what – he never lets things escalate! He can shut down problems quickly, usually by taking a step back and gaining much needed perspective, before offering a measured and fair response. 

Whilst Mark gets a real buzz out of meeting and helping people, he really enjoys the challenge of getting a house on the market and seeing the results. It’s not just about the sale, it’s all about customers having as smooth an experience as they can from start to finish. By listening and understanding what the customer wants, Mark gives them the property journey that works for them. 

Campbells and especially Mark our agent has been fantastic from the start of selling the house to after completion. The whole team have been professional and courteous at all times and have kept us fully informed at every stage of the process. I would highly recommend them.

Vanessa, DaventryApril 2024

I am really happy to leave a five star review for Mark Heycock and his colleagues at Campbells. Throughout the process of selling a property in Daventry, Mark was informative, helpful, honest and never failed to return a call. If I ever have to sell another house, Mark and Campbells will be my first phone call.

Cliff, DaventryMarch 2024

We purchased our house through Campbells and was so impressed with the service, help and support we received from Mark. He was friendly and professional and always kept us updated and chased others when needed.

Jenny, DaventryFebruary 2024

Campbells definitely deserve 5 stars, would highly recommend. Very helpful all the way and very easy to communicate with. Mark Haycock dealt with my sale surprisingly quick and was readily available to contact anytime.

Darren, DaventryFebruary 2024

If you want to sell your house, go with Mark! He has a great understanding of the local market & was the most proactive estate agent we had.

Dom, BraunstonJanuary 2024

Mark was professional and helpful throughout. He took a personal interest in doing the best and giving good advice at every turn. I heartily recommend him as an agent set on selling a house.

Liz, WelfordJanuary 2024

Mark is very good at offering his customers a sense of security throughout their moving journey. From the valuation stage and up to completion, they know that they’ve got an amazing expert by their side who they can trust to do things properly.

Outside of work, Mark owns two spaniels Boris and Billy-Bob. They have an Instagram account which has really taken off – who knew that people would be so interested in what they get up to?

Mark is also a keen runner. Although coming to the sport later in life, he has completed all six world major marathons (London, New York, Chicago, Berlin, Boston and Tokyo), and another 26 to boot. Currently Mark is wondering whether he should make it to the 100 club, but until he decides, his latest challenge of running 12 marathons and 12 half marathons in 12 months, is keeping him focused.

People often ask Mark why he started running again at the age of 48, well that’s simple. It was a time of recession and he had a real dilemma. Should he buy a new suit, or lose weight so he wouldn’t need a new suit? Turns out maybe Mark didn’t make the right economic decision, as he currently goes through one pair of running shoes a month, so perhaps a suit would have been a lot cheaper in the long run! 

If you’ve met Mark, you probably know that it’s impossible to be around him and not laugh at least a few times during the conversation. A lot of our customers say that after having him as their agent during the sale of their property, they consider Mark a family friend who they keep going back to with their property queries as they know that they will be looked after properly.

Mark has dealt with the sale of hundreds of family homes around Daventry and the surrounding villages but has a particular interest in helping people sell properties in Braunston.

If you are thinking of moving, then talk to Mark – he will do his best to give you as much help as you need.

Mark helped us to sell on a property recently and he was brilliant throughout. My stereotypical view of estate agents has been shattered by his professionalism and honesty!

He looked after us during the entire process with excellent communication on schedules and updates. On top of all that he's a pretty personable chap!

Andy, Norton

Mark was very helpful throughout a long and difficult move - we as a family appreciate his support hugely.

Patricia, Braunston

Mark was very helpful, proactive and pragmatic throughout a very prolonged sale process and was key to unlocking issues and driving progress

Katie, Daventry

Mark has been awesome throughout the whole process.

Approachable, friendly and quick to answer any questions.

100% would use again if we are moving.

Frazer, Daventry

Mark has been absolutely brilliant in managing the whole process of my purchase, going the extra mile to ensure everything has remained on track and keeping me fully updated along the way.

Professional, responsive, honest and very attentive to my many queries, I really couldn't have asked for more help and support from an estate agent!
