So after a few weeks away at our flagship head office in Cambridge city centre learning the TG ropes, I am pleased to say I am finally now in more familiar surroundings. I grew up in Saffron Walden and still live here so it’s great to be back, plus my commute is back down to a sensible 3 minute walk!
They say good things come to those who wait, and I really think they do because after 13 years in the Saffron Walden property market I have been given the opportunity I desperately wanted – my own office – and I’m really lucky to be joined by some great people: Jon Daniels our Negotiator, Carol Willis our Administrator and Harvey Steere our Lettings Manager, all who live locally.
Our new office is a lovely Grade II Listed property right on the High Street with a fantastic window right by the traffic lights. Part of our commitment to Saffron Walden is a thorough refurbishment and investment programme to restore the lovely old shop in the right way. This is taking a while and rather than delay opening, we decided to ‘go into rented accommodation’, so we are currently in temporary space just around the corner. The Estate Agent in me would describe our temporary office as cosy, deceptively spacious or well-planned rather than small! The most important thing is that it allows us to do our job, we have our phones, an extensive database, local knowledge and a bucket full of determination to get the best results for our clients, plus we are lucky to have our network of local offices looking out for us.
We have got off to a great start, with a number of exciting instructions including some fantastic new developments launching early ’16.
If you are in town and want to say hello we are just opposite the Mocha and any local will tell you it has legendary status – particularly their milkshakes. So do pop in and we can have a coffee (or milkshake) and we will be happy to chat through any property related matters you have.
