Symonds Reading is the longest continuously run independent estate agency within the Worthing area, having been established in 1924 as Symonds & Co, and then Symonds Reading in 1972 when Barry Reading joined the partnership.
During the 1980's Jim Morl and Peter Webb joined as partners and opened their second office in Ferring. This soon established itself, embracing village life, which enabled Symonds Reading to offer comprehensive sales and lettings from Lancing to Ferring.
More recently in 2000 Ian Ward joined the partnership soon followed by Jo Ward. This dynamic husband and wife team took full control of the company in 2007 with Ian as sales director and Jo as financial director determined to maintain and grow the reputation of Symonds Reading. Their passion for the area, living locally and raising their family, and their commitment to the many charities locally have enhanced the strong community spirit of this family run estate agents.
Being referred to as 'Worthing's most ethical estate agent' reiterates the moral code of the Symonds Reading team' says Ian Ward. ' I am proud to say that our reputation has never been stronger. Our integrity and respect is recognised across the industry, our repeat business is a sign of our success and the results speak for themselves. Our staff are local, extremely knowledgeable, professional and kind. We welcome clients to come into our offices, have a coffee and chat with us. We then learn what you want from us and how we can make this happen for you. This is what makes us stand out from our competitors.
