A 23-year career in the Royal Air Force taught Gary the importance of values such as honesty, integrity, trust and respect; values he brought to a new business in the property sector (a sector which is still partly unregulated). As a long-standing landlord and tenant he also understands the needs of his clients and, with the backing of one of the most respected brands in the business, he set out to take a different approach to lettings and estate agency in the Northwood way. Four years later and the Company is the fifth largest agent in the area. However, his proudest achievement is the customer loyalty he and his team have earned among landlords, tenants and vendors alike.

The estate agency side of the business really gained momentum with the arrival of Anita in September 2015. Anita is a very experienced valuer and sales negotiator. Compliance remains at the forefront of all that she does giving both sellers and buyers the assurance they are in safe hands. Anita will tailor her service to the needs of her vendor, offering a wide range of sales packages.

Anitas greatest gift is to match properties to her prospective buyers and she is extremely proactive in marketing her sales portfolio. So confident are we in her ability to secure an acceptable offer, well halve our sales fee if we havent found you a buyer within 90 days.* (*…
