What are the key trends you expect to see in Surrey in the coming months?
The market should remain firm with prices holding, which produces a steady demand for quality homes across the price ranges.

What excites you most about the area where you work?
I started my career in estate agency in 1979, and since then I have worked in all aspects across Surrey. The area is attractive, green and has a wide collection of property, offering a good choice of amenitiesas well as an ability to easily travel to London. Reigate, where our office is based, is situated at the foot of the beautiful North Downs. It is a historical town, which offers the suburban atmosphere of an established market town.


Are their bargains still to be found in Surrey?
There are always bargains to be found, providing buyers have vision. A property to focus on is one that has scope for improvement. Location is important and never choose the biggest house in the road. Finding a smaller house with extension potential in an area that is dominated by larger houses can enable you to get what you were looking for at a more affordable price. Remember, perfection seldom appears from thin air and so a compromise is often a way forward but, if you find a property that can be changed, you can create your own perfection at an affordable figure.


What would be your top tip for someone who is moving house?
When selling your home, we recommend you de-clutter to help your presentation. When it comes to buying, decide on your location,location, location and do your research.
