Talented showman swaps the stage for real estate

Justin Wilman has swapped life on the high wires and the stage to help match people with their dream homes.

The 29-year-old actor and musician started his career in the Royal Marines Band Service, and then went on to star in Cirque du Soleil, George’s Marvellous Medicine, Sister Act, The Witches and Calamity Jane. But the arrival of his baby son River and the need to be around more, prompted a fresh career as a Lettings Consultant.

Vicky Bibiris, a Partner at Justin’s new workplace Location Location estate agency, said: “We’re thrilled to welcome Justin to the team – we’re hoping he’ll make the office more musical! He’s a natural fit – a big personality and a hard-worker and he’s off to a great start.

“We invest constantly in staff training so when we recruit we’re not afraid to look beyond this industry to find staff who really stand out.”

Justin added: “As an actor I was on tour constantly and I got to the point where I needed more stability – my son is four-months-old, and I wanted to be home more. I think this is a job I’ll be good at – I’ve had lots of training and it feels like a good match for my personality.”

Among the instruments Justin plays are violin, saxophone, ethnic flutes and the clarinet and he’s sung as part of the ensemble in musical theatre.

In Cirque du Soleil he used to fly above the crowds on a high-wire playing the Indian flute.  He played George’s father in a UK tour of George’s Marvellous Medicine and Bruno’s dad in the Witches.

Justin’s wife Lucy is a singer with the Kings Cross Hot Club. Justin added: “I’m loving the job and really enjoying learning from our Lettings Manager Adam Wetenhall. I’ll still get to follow my passion for jazz music some evenings and at the weekend and will be performing gigs from time to time.”
