I sell houses. That is my job and I do it very well. My colleagues and I know our area well and are confident that we can value a property accurately enough to be able to sell it. We know the market.

That being the case, I am often surprised at the stipulations other agents insist on. Some, for instance, require a seller to sign over sole selling rights for up to sixteen weeks. Sixteen weeks! What does that say about the agent’s confidence in their ability to sell a property?


Think you know Gloucester? I bet there is at least one thing here that you did not know:

1. Roman Retirement Home. Gloucester was founded as a market town by the Romans but by 97AD it was an established colonia. This was an area where retired soldiers could settle and farm. Gloucester’s Roman name was Colonia Nervia Glevensium or Glevum for short.


I am pleased to confirm that we sponsored Kellie Hull, a member of the England U21 Nets team, which competed in the World Championships in Wellington, New Zealand last month.


Clowns have been having a hard time in the press recently but they are not all bad. In fact I am pleased to say that some of them are busy bringing fun and laughter into the lives of children who might not normally experience the joy of a real live circus!


I was very pleased to receive this letter from the Parents and Teachers Association of Elmbridge Primary.

We were one of the many who were happy to make a donation for their recent fundraising Summer Fayre. I firmly believe that we are part of the local community and we are happy to support local causes whenever we can.

Covid -19 Lockdown Update

We hope you are all staying well and safe in these very confusing times.

We are very pleased to say that with the impending second lockdown restrictions we are able to stay open and can fully function.  It just goes to show how important to the Government and the economy the residential property market is.

It is not yet confirmed as to whether our branches will be open to the public, but we can be contacted by telephone or email. 

In Summary this means

  • Buyers, sellers and tenants will continue to be able to move.
  • Removal firms, although busy are able to operate.
  • We can arrange valuations and do viewings on properties (subject to strict PPE being in place)
  • Surveyors and valuers for mortgage purposes will continue to work.

In the meantime, we will continue to follow the covid-19 safety guidelines:

  • Face coverings to be worn on all viewings.
  • Hand sanistiser to be used before entering a property.
  • Avoid touching any surfaces.
  • Viewing time is limited to 15 minutes inside the property.
  • No more than two households inside the property at any one time. This includes the agent accompanying.
  • No children permitted at viewings unless they are young enough to be carried. (Children are likely to touch surfaces).

This is good news for the property market and we will keep you updated as soon as there are any further developments.
