    Mr Nicholas (Nick) Tatham MARLA MNAEA
    I am a fully qualified and fully regulated estate agent with over 10 years of local experience in and around the South Wales Area and have also regularly conducted business external from Cardiff and Wales through some of my portfolio management service which I offer. This allows myself to give my clients a rich and in-depth understanding of the UK property market, especially when advising on Buy to Let.

    I have previously been under the tutorship of Mr Phillip Grimson FNAEA of Mansells Estate Agents in Rhiwbina Village for 6 years. I've continued to learn the sales industry side of the business and hold Mr Grimson in the highest regard, and have a strong grasp on both the Probate market and helped me shape my speciality towards Buy to Let and Investments

    I have fantastic family support and help and advice from my trusted contractors, along with recently passing my estate agency exams to take steps to becoming a fully regulated agent.I am always here to help my past, present and future clients.
