Originally specialising in mortgages and property finance, along with arranging appropriate insurance contracts, he expanded into property sales and lettings, before taking the next step into property management.

Richard’s knowledge of the property market has allowed him to adopt a ‘hands-on’ approach to the maintenance side of the business.  This includes utilising his contacts within the insurance industry to negotiate preferential block insurance rates for our clients, and using existing relationships with contractors in all areas to ensure maintenance issues can be dealt with appropriately.
