Meet The Team

Marc Cox

Marc began his career in the property market by working for Fox and Sons estate agents in 1990 and then at GA Property Services – where he stayed until 2003 – when he was approached by the late Glenn Mishon to become a part of Mishon Mackay.

After successfully running the Portslade and Hove offices, Marc was promoted to Sales Director in 2007 where he was responsible for the running of the seven branches along with valuations, property sales, marketing strategies as well as the day to day running of the sales business. Then, in 2010 Marc was made a partner at Mishon Mackay; it’s still one his proudest moments.

In 2019 – after 30 years of selling homes in the Brighton and Hove area – Marc, his wife Tammy and Father Tony decided the time was right to form their own agency. In doing so, Marc has drawn on all the knowledge he gained and all the contacts he made over years of working for both independent and corporate firms, and the result is Cox & Co – a different kind of estate agent that delivers the level of professionalism you expect from a big agency with the kind of personal touch you only get with a small one.

Marc is married to teacher Tammy and they have two daughters Louise and Chloe.

He’s a local lad and has lived in Hove since moving down to Brighton from Wimbledon in 1978. He attended Aldrington, Somerhill and Cardinal Newman Schools. He is a bad golfer and – for his sins – an enthusiastic Seagulls’ supporter, which makes him an incurable optimist.

Tony Cox

Tony was born and raised in Fulham, London but his ties to Brighton and Hove go all the way back to holidays spent here with his grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins while he was still at school.

Today, Tony – 51 years married to wife Georgina – and his family have lived in Hove for nearly 40 years. “Estate agency isn’t just about property,” says Tony. “It’s about people, and it’s great to be working locally in Hove and helping Marc to run the business – although sometimes I have to bite my tongue and remember who’s the boss!”

Tony began his career in the early 1960s, working in an estate agents opposite Harrods in London. After a while, he transitioned into property management and later investment/development when he worked with London-based property companies like Taylor Woodrow (co-incidentally the company that developed Churchill Square in Brighton).

During this time, he qualified as a chartered surveyor, worked in London and Lewes before joining a Chichester-based construction and development firm where he remained for 30 years, rising all the way up to Land and Property Director for the entire firm. These days he’s returned to his estate agency roots in his adopted home town of Hove, working alongside his son Marc.

Josh Pennycott

Josh’s passion is helping people move home, and he loves nothing more than the look on people’s faces when he’s helped them find their new family home.

Josh has been in the property business since 2016, previously at Mishon Mackay, where Marc Cox initially brought him into the business. Marc first noticed Josh when he was working at The Dyke Golf Club. Marc spotted him dealing with some of the senior members on a cold, wet, windy morning, telling them they couldn’t play golf due to the fog and was super impressed by his polite and calm attitude, a handy attribute in what would become his future career.

In the last seven years, Josh has become successful in all aspects of estate agency. He loves helping people buy and sell homes by understanding their needs and delivering the best outcome for his customers.

Josh is an avid fitness enthusiast and enjoys playing golf, tennis and going to the gym.

He believes that maintaining a healthy work-life balance is essential for success, and this is one of the main reasons he has decided to join back up with Marc, at Cox & Co, on their quest to become the best customer service-driven Estate Agency in the Brighton & Hove Area.

Sarah Madonna

Sarah lives in Portslade and has two adult children. Loves the changes she’s seeing in the areas around her doorstep.

She’s happy her daughter has also recently seen the positives of this area and has relocated from London to start her family beside the sea. Now she’s secretly working on her son (don’t tell him)!

Having lived in Brighton in the 70’s and 80’ she moved to Essex and Suffolk for over 30 years, now she’s back in Portslade and wonders why she left it so long.

Her previous career was as a head buyer for an international wholesale company dealing with all things interiors which was sparked by her passion for the home. Having bought, sold and improved many properties throughout her life she is very experienced in the property market at a personal level and understands it can feel challenging at times, she’s always happy to listen.

She’s very excited to join Cox and Co combining her genuine interest in property and a busy, upbeat work environment. Loving life.
