Welcome to Walkers....
  • paragraph

    'Walkers | People & Property' is the result of a lifelong family passion for the property industry; whether it's buying, selling, investing or renovating, we live, breathe and love property. Martin, Gillian and Adam Walker - together with a professional team - combine to operate one of the most thorough, professional and well respected Property Agencies in the County.

    Through over 30 years of experience, we have gained a deep understanding of the moving process on a personal level, which guarantees our clients results beyond compare. Most importantly, it is our hobby to help people move. Handing over the keys to excited buyers, for us, is the single most enjoyable part of the transaction process.

    "Estate Agency turned on its head"; "totally refreshing"; "we didn't expect moving home to be so enjoyable...". These are some of our favourite client comments that capture the ethos of our Company. We are different; not for the sake of it, but because we believe there is a better way. For example, we don't request long sole agency contracts; we feel our clients' loyalty should be earned and not signed for. Our service will always meet our clients' expectations and we like to show our confidence through this approach.

    Our popular Discreet Marketing Service makes us truly different. This gives our clients the option to market their home without any public advertising and at no extra cost. Only our best buyers are contacted and they will pay substantial premiums to purchase a property 'off market'. Our clients are equally happy to move home without the neighbours knowing and without their homes being broadcast over the Internet! It's a real win win... We of course offer a traditional and very comprehensive Full Marketing service, and very often we combine the two services to great effect...

    We are a one-office outfit by design, covering a 15-mile radius around Ingatestone. Our wide catchment area and commuter-belt location draws buyers from all over Essex, London, the rest of the UK and, increasingly, foreign investment buyers, particularly for properties near Crossrail stations. If a potential client seeks a company with multiple offices, we aren't that company and never wish to be. We are popular for exactly that reason.

    To make your next move a rewarding one, please call or visit us for an informal discussion. All our services are offered without obligation, in total confidence, and with the greatest of pleasure.

Our Professional Team
  • Introduction

    Adam Walker MNAEA - Director
    image cannot be displayed
    Adam began his property career at a young age, not only through taking an interest in his parents' pursuits in the property market, but by independently covering Open Days at the age of 14, then negotiating his first sale at 16, which involved keeping together a long chain of sales. After achieving A-Levels in Business, Economics and Spanish at Anglo European School, Ingatestone, Adam quickly moved into the family business, keen to establish his own client base and to build upon the highly regarded and established name.  
    After many years of successful operation and having marketed properties between £100,000 & £6million during that time - and regularly between £1m & £3m - Adam took over the running of the Company in 2010 and, together with the help of his professional team, now secures an average of 75% of instructions each year through recommendation or repeat business. The Company has also grown through relationships with New Homes Developers and Part Exchange Companies, all of whom recognise the effectiveness of an independent and driven Agency.  

    Adam lives in the village of Ingatestone and has a passion for cars, trips to Europe and the world of food and wine. Adam is also a keen golfer with a single-figure handicap, however as the business grows, it leaves little time for golf, although Squash has started to fill the sporting gaps.

    John Sayers - Sales Manager
    Well known in the local property market and thoroughly respected by all his associates, John continues to enjoy a long and successful career in the Essex property market having joined Walkers in 2011. 

    John lives and has operated as an agent in and around Brentwood for over forty years and enjoys an unparalleled knowledge of the local area and property market. They say never to trust an estate agent, but very few people in life command the trust and respect deserved by John.

    As a true family man, with three children and five treasured grandchildren, working within the Walker family business was a natural choice for John.  For many years, John managed a Sunday League football team in Brentwood, taking them through promotion after promotion, and his passion for football and sport continues today.

      Testimonials
      image cannot be displayed

      The provision of a quality and personal service often leads to some very kind words...

      "I used Walkers for the sale and purchase of a property. They were excellent in bringing all parties together, managing the transaction and facilitating the completion of the deal. I recommend them highly and will use them again, if the opportunity arose." Miss C.G. January 3, 2012

      Top qualities: Great Results, Personable Staff, High Integrity

      ---------------------------------

      "Adam sold our house recently when we were in a long chain. If you want an estate agent who proactively drives everyone in your chain, works hard to overcome barriers, keeps you informed, is easy to get in touch with (even out of hours), AND gets the deal done, then I highly recommend him." Mr E.G. December 23, 2011

      Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, On Time

      ----------------------------------

      "To The House Hero, Adam,

      Thank you so much for your help, support, patience and humour!

      From Mrs A & Family"

      ----------------------------------

      "The reputation, integrity and all round business acumen of estate agents is much maligned, often rightly so, however, I must put on record that my dealings with Walkers over the past couple of years have disproved that widely held sentiment by some way.

      The assistance given by your lettings department was simple, non fussy and quietly reassuring to someone who is living two and a half thousand miles away. The efforts of your sales team has always been thorough, diligent and highly professional whilst beset by a very staccato and difficult property market. In short, I have been delighted all round by your efforts and would have no reservations about recommending you to anyone be they landlord, property seller or buyer.

      Now that the sale of my property has been concluded it will be disappointing not to be in regular contact with Adam and the team, therefore, I take this opportunity of wishing you all a continued success in your business pursuits." Mr B. W.

      ---------------------------------

      "Adam, for the second time in less than a year I find myself putting pen to paper in praise of your Company.

      Too often expressions such as: '..go the extra mile..' or '..give added value..' have become meaningless platitudes which sadly detract from praise of genuine service.

      Over the past eight or so years we have gone full circle together and have arrived back where we started! As you know I have used your company to buy, let, sell and now buy a property once more. The care and attention give by you to each of these transactions has been nothing short of exemplary.

      Conducting business, especially property business, from over two thousand miles away is never easy and I have needed a lot of help and guidance, even to the point on some occasions of having my 'hand held' and your expertise and willingness to help has been invaluable.

      May I take this opportunity of expressing my deep gratitude for all that you have done and of wishing you and everyone else associated with the company continued success." Mr B. W.

      ----------------------------------

      "Thank you for everything! You're the best. Please come and see us in our new home."

      ----------------------------------

      "I would like to thank you for your most efficient service and advice concerning my two properties. I was most impressed and will not hesitate to recommend you to others or to use your services myself should I decide to place one or other of the properties on the market."

      ----------------------------------

      "Just wanted you to know how grateful we both are. Thank you for all you have done on helping us sell our property, it was a pleasure doing business with you."
