    Experienced And Caring Professionals

    When we first opened, we felt it imperative to surround ourselves with the very best people. Our hand-picked team offer combined agency experience in excess of 60 years and are honest, professional, hard working, enthusiastic, determined, caring......we could go on.

    We offer a more personal service giving you the option to deal one on one with a specific staff member should this be your wish. You will also be provided with our mobile telephone numbers should you require any assistance and need to speak to us out of office hours.

    Appointing individuals with limited industry experience or local knowledge could cost you thousands of pounds, along with unwanted stress.

    Expert Knowledge

    All of our market appraisals are carried out by a senior member of staff to assess the current value of your property and discuss a marketing plan that works for your individual needs and time scales. Getting the price right for your home is an extremely important aspect of achieving a successful sale in a reasonable time frame.

    Pro-active Sales Tactics

    Here at Paul Mason Associates we don't just sit and wait for the phone to ring. Once instructions have been received to sell your property, we immediately telephone and e-mail all suitable applicants and circulate your property details to them. We will then endeavour to follow up potential buyers and keep you updated with any interest shown in the property.

    Open Seven Days a Week

    We understand that selling a house is not a 9am - 5pm process which is why we are one of only a handful of agents who are open seven days a week. We do not miss any opportunity to sell our clients properties.

    Professional Photography

    All of our senior members of staff have received professional training in photography which will make sure your home is shown at it's best in our marketing material.

    Feedback After Every Viewing

    We will provide honest feedback after every viewing, along with advice and recommendations if necessary, to help you achieve the maximum price for your property.

    Open Houses/Launch Day's

    We're one of the few local estate agents who make effective use of open houses and launch days. These are funded, organised and run by our team and often generate a high amount of interest in one day, which could potentially lead to offers in excess of the guide price.

    The Internet

    In today's world most people look for a home online and your property will be shown on www.rightmove.co.uk, www.onthemarket.com and our own website www.paulmasonassociates.co.uk. Many of our properties are displayed on Rightmove as Premium Listings. These are designed to stand out from normal listings and Rightmove's own statistics prove properties that are displayed in this way secure higher levels of enquiries from potential buyers.

    Accompanied Viewings

    We are happy to accompany all viewings as part of our bespoke service which we can tailor to suit your own needs or requirements. We are here to make the whole process as smooth as possible and having an experienced member of staff conduct the viewings can often help to do this.

    Qualify Your Buyer

    It is vitally important to make sure that your potential purchaser has been fully qualified in terms their ability to proceed. This could be checking that their mortgage has been agreed in principle, requesting proof of funding from 'cash buyers', checking that deposit monies are available or verifying the purchasers chain by speaking to agents or lawyers involved. If this is not done correctly it could potentially cost you time and money should the sale fall though.

    Regular Sales Progress

    We are experienced in the conveyancing process and we will regularly chase solicitors, brokers, buyers and the property chain to effect a smooth transaction, keeping you informed and updated every step of the way. Our experience and expertise helps us identify potential problems before they occur, making sure everything runs as smoothly as possible.

    Competitive Fees

    What's a reasonable fee for handling the sale of your home? There are agents who will charge lower fees than Paul Mason Associates, and others that will charge more. We always ensure that our commission rates are competitive yet still offer a quality service to our clients at a fair price.

    Unlike some agents we do not charge upfront fees to market your property. We work on a percentage of the sale price, meaning the more we achieve for your property the more we earn ourselves.


    We will always return your calls, messages and emails promptly. You will also be provided with our mobile telephone numbers should you require any assistance and need to speak to us out of office hours.

    EPC & Floor Plans

    We use selected and qualified Energy Assessors who can conduct the required Energy Performance Certificate for your home. They will also produce professionally drawn floorplans to use within our marketing material. We have carefully selected the right people because we know you will be comfortable with them in your home.

    Low Key Marketing

    As well as high profile property marketing, we offer a more discreet low ley service should this be required. This service is bespoke and tailored to your own individual needs. We are able to find the best buyers and secure the best prices whilst preserving confidentiality.

    Peace Of Mind

    We are members of The Property Ombudsman Scheme, an independent arbitration service, who are there to support you and give assistance in the unlikely event of a problem arising which we are unable to resolve to your satisfaction.


    Our aim is to be "The Agent of Choice" by providing exceptional customer service, honest advice and creative marketing. To ensure this is achieved Paul Mason will oversee the whole process and if there is any aspect you would like to discuss please do not hesitate to contact us.

    Paul Mason - Director
    Having started my career over twenty years ago as an office junior, I quickly worked my way up to management within the industry for independent and corporate estate agents. I have negotiated sales on residential properties, development land and new homes sites during this time for private individuals, as well as some of the leaders in the new home industry. My focus and goal was to start up my own estate agency business, which was realised in 2008 and to use the experience in both corporate and independent estate agents to provide a successful combination of both types of businesses. Paul Mason Associates was created to provide clients with a personal, efficient, professional service which has been continued by a dedicated and expanding team in all areas of the property sector. Outside of my working life I am a family man with a 13 year son Alfie, who I enjoy watching play football at the weekends and taking him to watch his favourite team Tottenham Hotspurs. My other interests including cooking, dining out and socialising.

    Sam Dadd - Assistant Manager
    I have been working in the residential property industry for the last four years, having worked for a local independent Estate Agent. I live in the Maldon area and have a vast knowledge of the surrounding areas and villages. I take pride in my customer service levels and feel it is important to keep in close contact with Vendors and Purchasers alike. I enjoy photography, which I feel is an asset to selling any property these days. Since joining Paul Mason Associates I work mainly from our Latchingdon Office due to my vast knowledge of the area. 

    In my spare time I have a keen interest in cars and have been known to change them regularly. I also like vintage cars and have two of my own that I enjoy doing work on.

    Brooke Esson - Property Administrator
    I have recently joined the team at Paul Mason Associates and could not have made a better decision. I have a passion for houses and I am keen to progress my career in the industry. My favourite part of the job is accompanying viewings, especially when it pays off and people feel they have found their perfect home. I previously worked with horses and have my own. I like to ride outside of work, take my dog on long walks, paint canvases and take photos. I also love to socialise with my friends and family.

    Jan Dearing - Property Administrator
    I was fortunate to meet Paul Mason on a visit to the Hatfield Peverel Office many years ago and now enjoy working with this very friendly team. There is a very good work ethic here and we strive to provide a professional, helpful and courteous service to all our clients whether buying or selling. My background does give me a full understanding of the process of buying and selling properties from all aspects. My own career has spanned over a number of years, (quite a few) the earliest being with a local Building Society then followed by work at an Estate Agent and then a Solicitor. This has given me the opportunity of understanding all aspects the property business including conveyancing. After having my children, I started helping in our local village school with IT, and helped to develop and grow both their IT skills and my own while setting up a computer suite, which back in those days was something new to schools, needless to say not any longer! . With my children going off to University I found myself back at work in Estate Agency, I seem to have the knack of finding myself working in the property field and cannot get away from it, but it is something I do enjoy. I worked for both John D Wood and Jackson-Stops & Staff for over a 15 years, working in sales and marketing of period and country properties in the Essex and Suffolk area. 

    I tried retirement but found that I could not settle to the quiet life. I do like to keep busy and in my spare time I enjoy socialising with an extremely close group of friends and family. Recently I have taken up the joy of an allotment, this is a new learning process and at the moment, quite fun, even if it does mean finding new muscles. There is always something new to learn in life I am sure it never stops.

    Judith Burl - Property Administrator
    Following a very varied career crossing several industries I had the pleasure of joining the team at Paul Mason Associates in 2016. My strong work ethic and a desire to always provide a professional and courteous service is wholly satisfied in working within this company who strive to do the very best for all parties involved within the sale of a property. Having owned my own business for many years, which was the cause of having worked in various industries, I have always found that one of my driving forces is the customer. I consider myself a people person and therefore interaction with people on a day to day basis for me is a must. I have in the past run open days for Builders with new sites to promote and have also worked in site offices on very large building projects. On a personal basis I spent 11 years singing with Boreham Ladies choir and the same 11 years assisting as a support team member for the Blue Falcon Gymnastic display team. Both of these interests had to be put on hold whilst I spent two years as a Landlady of a local public house, a 24/7 job if ever there was one. So nowadays I am taking it a little more easily in my private time. I love to swim, read, walk and organise family gatherings for which I love to do the catering.

Jan, Judith and Sam kept us up to date on every stage of the purchase, chased queries and were so brilliantly proactive they turned a 3 month potential chain into a much shorter time frame. Professional, courteous and proactive I would highly recommend them.
