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.
