    After more than a decade in New Street we have opened our doors to bigger and brighter offices in bustling Castlegate. 

    It is the first in a planned series of changes that promises to make this a ground-breaking year for RM English, York. 

    For not only are they growing their York business - and adding young and enthusiastic new staff to the team - but they are simultaneously expanding their London operation to market Yorkshire properties directly to buyers in the capital.

    The Directors, John Burley and Sandra Mapplebeck says: "This is going to be a very exciting time for us and our customers, old and new, as we take a series of steps to expand our brand. "The move to Castlegate gives us a good base for that expansion. 

    We will have considerably more front of office space to display our properties in attractive surroundings in a busy area of the city with a lot of footfall. 

      "We also have a new-look team with some very bright young people joining to help make the changes. "And we plan to capitalize on the popularity of Yorkshire with southern buyers by providing a shop window for our properties directly through The London Office."

    These moves are only the first in a series of brand-expanding plans for the year ahead and which will include at least two further major new ventures. 

    John and Sandra add: Whilst there are lots of changes, some things definitely won't change. We will very much be retaining those special touches that make R M English York that bit different from other agents. 

    "We will still be taking on the challenge of those unique, different, charming, characterful and outright quirky properties for which we have become so well known. 

    "And we will still be providing that very individual, personal, service to our clients which have people coming back to us time and again. "We will never forget that it is lifestyle and life changes that motivate people into moving house - whether it is family flying the nest or new family arrivals - and will always be there to help people with those lifestyle and life changes. 

    "For all our exciting new ventures we will ensure those core values which make R M English, York so very special will always remain." 

    We also have specialist departments dealing with New Homes, Land and Commercial Property. 

    We offer marketing advice, valuation and consultancy advice in these areas too. 

    Our experienced team is here to provide advice, whether you are buying or selling. Call us on 01904 697 900

Selling With Style
  • paragraph

    Bored of the same old brochures?
    image cannot be displayed


    As you will know, most Estate Agents use the same old boring brochures whilst advertising your property. Why not advertise your property with real style and advertise it the RM English way.

    Here we like to market your property in a different way. We don't focus on the usual room by room description; the write up section of the brochure contains well written paragraphs with a difference. The brochure tells more of a story about your home to entice people through your door. RM English want to sell your home and our proven methods showcase your property in a very desirable way.

    Photography - Don't settle for less

    What is the first thing you look at when you decide to move house? That's right, it's the pictures.

    At RM English we realise how important the photography is whilst advertising your property. The only way to showcase your home to others is by using a professional photographer and not any old person with an iPhone as others have been known to do.

    Our professional pictures alongside our talented story telling is an ideal way to show off your home!

We want you to be our advert!
  • Introduction

    image cannot be displayed

    Anywhere you go, if you are not sure what to do, you can ask for help and advice.

    This is particularly true of services such as ours, so when the decision to buy or sell your home is such an important one, people will pay even more attention to their family, friends and other customers who have used particular services or agencies. They will have something to say, whether positive or negative, and this feedback then makes a difference to the decisions that are made.

    At RM English, we want every customer, not just to be satisfied with their service, but to be able to say "I would recommend RM English because they were great for me!". We believe this is the best advertising that we can offer, because to recommend us, it means that we are trusted and we have done a job worthy of being recommended.

    Below you can see a few of the positive comments that happy clients have left for us. We hope that in future, we can add you as another happy customer!
