For those that live locally, you have hopefully noticed the increasing number of our "for sale" and "to let" boards going up over the last two years and more importantly, the high proportion that are being changed to "sold" and "let by". With a business model that focuses on proactivity in selling and letting property, by encouraging a "pick up the phone and sell" culture within our sales and lettings teams, we have experienced exponential growth in East and West Molesey, Claygate, Hinchley Wood, Esher and Walton On Thames, and are proud to report that our list of happy sellers and landlords keeps on growing!
Here is our latest video advert highlighting some of the statistics taken from the past year:
Many experts predict either a slow in growth or in some cases (particularly in South West & Central London), a drop in property values. Surrey has always been resilient in turbulent property markets and we fully expect this trend to continue.
As we focus on the South West London buyer that is looking to increase space in search of better value for money than what is offered by the London market, and looking to settle their family here and secure a place in one of Surrey's renowned primary and/or secondary schools, we have noticed that areas such as East Molesey, Hinchley Wood, Claygate, Walton On Thames, Hersham and Esher are still increasing in popularity thus creating a temporary boom within the local market, allowing sellers to hold firm on asking prices and achieve the result they are looking for.
There will inevitably be periods of uncertainty as we progress towards our exit from the EU. This will require some additonal proactivity from estate agents to secure fewer proceedable buyers, but we see no evidence of property values in the local area decreasing, however the chances of property values moving upward are very low.
This is still very good news for those looking to upsize and we would recommend that anyone looking to move this year do so sooner rather than later whilst activity and interest from buyers remains high.
If you are considering moving this year and would like an up to date valuation of your property, please call 0208 396 6717 or complete our valuation request form and a member of our team will contact you to arrange a free, no obligation appointment.
You may have recently received a letter from us, offering a reduced commission rate in response to an influx of buyers and tenants registering for property in Surrey. More specifically, buyers and tenants migrating from South West London.
With demand remaining high, we have decided to extend our reduced commission promotional offer until the 12th December 20116
If you are considering selling or letting your property please contact our headquarters on 020 8396 6717 to speak to a member of our residential team.
ALL VALUATIONS ARE PROVIDED FREE OF CHARGE AND WITHOUT OBLIGATION.

The Princess Alice hospice hold a special place in my heart, as I’m sure they do for so many other members of the community. For 30 years they have been there to support people with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses. Just this year my family and I found ourselves calling upon this fantastic organisation, whose compassion and care was second to none as we faced such a difficult and challenging time.
So as soon as I found out about the Towpath Trundle, safe in the knowledge that I could give something back I strapped on my walking shoes (which those who know me can tell you, isn’t something I do lightly!) and accompanied by my Mum and our two dogs we began the 23rd annual 8 mile walk!
We were absolutely blessed by the weather with blue skies shining on us for the duration.
Despite having grown up in Walton, it is easy to forget the beauty that surrounds us, walking along the river helped me to remember what a beautiful area it is and just how lucky I am to have spent my life here. Helped along by some ice creams we found ourselves enjoying our walk, especially the tranquillity of the river and the wildlife that comes with it.
Along our trundle it was so lovely to see so many committed people taking part, as we walked we managed to find Wally and also bumped into a few fairies!
After two hours we reached the finish line, we triumphantly collected our medals and treated ourselves to a slice of cake and settled down on the grass to enjoy the company of those who had also taken part. It was so fantastic to be surrounded by so many charitable people in our own community, but also to see just how many lives the Princess Alice Hospice had touched and made a difference to.
