What are the key trends you expect to see in Surrey in 2011?
The general view (due to the effects of cuts, tax and VATincreases affecting consumer confidence) is that fewer properties will come on the market in 2011, resulting in a slight upward pressure on prices. Surrey may be no exception, but with fewer properties coming on the market, prices in Surrey (which historically bounce back quicker) should remain steady in 2011, with more desirable properties being snapped up even faster than usual.


Tell us what excites you most about the area where you work?
Epsom Downs is a beautiful rural area with stunning views, extending to the London skyline on clear days! The towns and villages around us offer an array of properties, from modern large luxurious homes to historic Victorian and Edwardian style properties. I am fortunate to have lived and worked in the area for over 25 years.


Are there any bargains still to be found in Surrey?
My view in business is that a good bargain is when both the buyer and seller are happy with the price agreed. Therefore, there are lots of bargains to be had in our area of Surrey as we aim to establish the right price for a property for which both the seller and purchaser get what they are looking for


And youre celebrating yourselves at the moment?
The franchise was recognised in the Estate Agency of the Year awards 2010 as being the best in the industry, winning the coveted gold award. Ellis and Co were especially delighted to win the gold award for their technology and online systems, at the same awards ceremony. This recognised the investment they have made in both their website at ellisandco.co.uk and also their back office technology, which is all aimed at making the house moving process as hassle free as possible for clients.
