    Established in 1997 Orchard has been involved in more than 3,000 successful property transactions.

     Originally starting out in financial services we have moved successfully into residential lettings and property management, and more recently sales. We now offer prospective and existing clients the full range of services from our Ickenham offices. All of our team have extensive local knowledge gained from many years living and working within the local borough and have forged excellent relationships with local solicitors, estate agents, property developers and contractors in the process.

  • paragraph

     Over the years we have embraced new technology utilising the ever popular internet portals including Rightmove (one of the few local agents to feature on all of "the big four"), together with a good following on Twitter, Facebook and our own interactive websites which achieve excellent Google rankings. This coupled with traditional methods such as local advertising, our prominent office location, highly visible and distinctive boards, extensive database of waiting clients and good old fashioned hard work will enable us to promote your property to the local, national and international market.

     As members of The Property Ombudsman and The Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) we follow strict codes of conduct and guidelines. We are renowned for excellent personal customer service and a strong company brand, and having grown our business solely on personal recommendations, we are happy to put our reputation on the line to achieve a successful outcome for you.

     Wherever possible all potential buyers will be pre-qualified by one of our team who will ensure that your valuable time isn't wasted by someone not in a position to buy or rent your property.

      All of our tenants are professional working people or companies, they are then carefully selected and professionally referenced checked at their own cost via an external company which will include credit, employment/accountant and previous managing agent/ landlord checks.

     If required we will accompany every viewing and most importantly of all we will feedback to you straight afterwards as well as providing detailed reports on a weekly basis of all activity concerning your property.

     Selling or letting your property doesn't end when you accept an offer, that is only just the beginning. We have learnt from our experience in the mortgage process that support in dealing with other estate agents, referencing agencies, contractors, solicitors and mortgage lenders will ultimately make the whole process less stressful and after all isn't that what you are paying us for?

     Choosing the right agent is essential if you want to achieve the best price for your property in the shortest possible time. You and your property are unique and we believe that by spending time getting to know you at the start of the process we will decide together on the best way to present and to market your property.
