An independent and boutique estate agency, specialising in selling and letting residential properties across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and South Oxfordshire, and in the identification of land for residential development. 

Founded in 1947 and currently celebrating its 75th anniversary, the business is a long-established and experienced estate agency, specialising in sales and lettings across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, and South Oxfordshire, as well as the identification of land for residential development. Bringing a wealth of local knowledge to the market, the business has a network of three offices in Maidenhead, Thame and Cookham, which cover highly sought-after areas with high quality and high value property, alongside excellent schooling, transport links, health care and employment. Offering a personalised service, they “strive to combine integrity and energy with experience and expertise”.

The business has a number of features that differentiate it from local competitors, including:

  • Strategically located and interlinked offices;
  • Situated in towns with high quality and high value property;
  • Excellent commuter access to the City, London, as well as good motorways access;

The estate agency benefits from a large active client base and an extensive pool of potential purchasers (in excess of 2500 at any one time), and enquiries from London are increasing every year due to strong demographics.
