Our Managing Director, Sally Knights formed the company in 2004 as a letting’s only agency and in 2015 the Sales department was opened. Sally spent the 1990’s and the early 2000’s working for a well-known National Estate Agency and has witnessed the many changes in the industry to what it is today. Long gone are the days of waiting for the “Property Weekly” supplement to be published on a Thursday to see the new properties available to buy & let.
Although technology has moved on a huge amount, the principles of selling & letting properties are still very much the same as they were 20 years ago, and we still firmly believe that people sell & rent houses, not computers. Our people have a real passion for property and firmly believe that speaking to people and the personal approach is what many clients still desire. Where’s the fun in listing a property on one of the online portals and waiting for the phone to ring?
We love our community we are heavily involved in fundraising for local causes. Our main charity is Cynthia Spencer Hospice. We run regular events throughout the year to raise much needed funds for the Hospice, our biggest event so far was November 2018 "Relax for Cynthia" Retro 80's ball & we raised almost £9000.
Check out our community page for more details, you can also follow us on Facebook.
