All the best: Beth Robinson

We ask local personalities what are their most favourite things

BY KERRY McKITTRICK

The 56-year-old is a director and co-founder of estate agents Templeton & Robinson. She lives in Belfast with her husband, David.

MY BEST MOMENT

It was when Templeton Robinson won the Estate Agent of the Year at the property awards in Dublin five years ago. We were all over the moon and partied the night away. The problem was we all had to get up the next morning at 5am and get the train back to Belfast for work. We were not in a good way.

MY BEST WAY TO RELAX

I like the gym and spinning in particular. No one can contact me while I'm in there so I can switch off and really chill out.

MY BEST SONG

I'm choosing Brothers In Arms by Dire Straits. It reminds me of good times as a teenager when I had no responsibilities!

MY BEST JOB

I've only ever had one and I still love it. Being an estate agent is great because every deal is so different. I learn something new every week in this job, so it's never dull.

MY BEST ADVICE

I can't remember who gave it to me, but it is "if you don't have something nice to say about someone, don't say anything at all". That is a motto that I try to live my life by.

MY BEST GIFT

The sapphire and diamond ring that my husband gave me for my 50th birthday. I'd always wanted one and I still love it.

MY BEST ACHIEVEMENT

Opening the doors of Templeton Robinson in 1994. My only regret is that I didn't do it sooner.

MY BEST BUY

Our house. We moved in 23 years ago. Staying there actually goes against my own advice, because I've often said that estate agents should move home every five or six years so that they remember how hard it is to do and can empathise with their clients. However, we love the property too much to move.

MY BEST MOVIE

I really love all films and I go through phases of having to check out the latest releases in the cinema. I love Pretty Woman, though. It's the romance of the story that gets me. I've watched it so many times. It's a real feel-good movie.

MY BEST BOOK

My Animals And Other Family by Clare Balding. I finished it on holiday and it was a lovely read.
