About the employer

As an independent agency, we have the flexibility to adopt whatever approach we feel is the greatest benefit to our clients. Without the constraints of corporate standardization, our values are more likely to reflect our own aspirations. If you were to analyses the approach we take to estate agency and business generally, you'd find us to be highly personable and empathetic to the needs of our clients, that we have time to listen with interest, and that we believe passionately in providing straight-talking, good advice that is responsibly realistic rather than insincerely flattering. Ultimately, it comes down to transparency and integrity, which are the cornerstones of our business. When combined with the passion we also have for results, the balance is a unique and enjoyable service of which we are extremely proud. It follows that when we employ new staff, they also mirror our values and quickly share the same sense of pride. Indeed, our very low staff turnover rate reflects a happy ship - something on which many of our clients have commented!
