Meet the Team

Steven Andrea

Steven Andrea FNAEA & MARLA

Owner & Managing Director
Since starting his career in estate agency over 10 years ago, Steven quickly realised that he has found his perfect job. His love for the industry propelled his career through the ranks of some of the largest estate agency groups in the UK, becoming an area manager for Central and North London. The world of corporate estate agency always frustrated Steven. He saw a lack of caring on a daily basis towards customers. Staff were put under unnecessary pressure, with little support and no resources. The industry needed to change. Clients and staff deserved better. So, Steven created Fuchsia Homes.
Outside of the office, Steven offers his wealth of experience supporting and mentoring start-ups. He is also a very active member of the Ruislip Manor Chamber of Commerce and loves helping small business owners grow and expand. Steven has held a motorsport license for over 5 years and on weekends, you’ll often find him doing some sort of racing, whether it be karting or cars.

Cathy Carasco

Office Manager

Having worked within the property industry and with housing associations for the last 20 years, Cathy brings a wealth of property experience to the office. Without Cathy, our Ruislip Manor office would not operate as smoothly as is does. Cathy is also the head of Fuchsia in the Community. If you are local charity, sports team, school, etc looking for sponsorship, Cathy is the person to speak to.


Laraine Taratooty

Lettings Consultant
Laraine brings to the office years of experience in customer service working for an industry leading UK retail company. Having bought, sold and rented many properties over the years, Laraine specialises with working with first time tenants and buyers to guide them through and help them move into their new home as smoothly as possible.

Oliver Ashton

Sales Consultant

Before starting at Fuchsia Homes, I worked in Central London and gained experience in sales, through selling wine to investors. Although I enjoyed it, when I started to think about my long term prospects and how I was spending the vital early stages of my career, I realised I needed a change. I needed to find a job that I felt comfortable with and could be passionate about. Discovering the apprenticeship scheme Steven was offering, was a breath of fresh air. I fell in love with being a property consultant very quickly and now look forward to working hard and earning my progression through the company.

Outside the office, I love venturing into new activities with friends and organising excursions to big events such as music festivals. I am first aid trained, from my experience working as a lifeguard. I am also a self-styled wine aficionado, as such in my spare time I keep myself involved with my father’s work/business, organising big wine award ceremonies across the world. To relax I like nothing better than to take Cooper and Bella (my 2 doggies) for a nice Sunday walk.

Adam Simmons

Sales Consultant

I have worked in property for the past 6 years. I have
been on the front line involved in the construction of properties. I also
worked on the other side of things behind the scenes, managing and running my
own business consisting of painters, decorators and handymen. I decided within
the last year to brush off the dust, take off the steel toecaps and slip into a
suit and shoes. I have found that consulting and selling people their dream
homes is what I really enjoy the most. My prior knowledge from previous roles
had given me a solid foundation for this job. Having being offered the amazing
opportunity to finally start a professional career with Steven and fuchsia
homes has been incredible. In previous companies I have always worked to
achieve and succeed above and beyond the average person. I aim to give
excellent client care to make a statement to set myself and the company I work
for, apart from all the other companies out there.

In my free time I love to keep fit by training in the gym or doing some form of
physical exercise at least 5 days a week. 



Resident Dog

Murphy is our part time office dog. At the young age of two Murphy has mastered the skills of lounging around the office and greeting anyone who comes into the office. In Murphy’s free time he enjoys going out for walks in Ruislip Manor and playing on the beach and in the water at Ruislip Lido.
