From period cottages to new build, we offer a wide portfolio of properties for sale and to let in both town and village locations.

    Why are you called Peter Joy?

    The Agency is named after the founder, Peter Joy. A successful Estate Agent with a track record of excellence, Peter started Peter Joy in Stroud in 1997 after becoming disillusioned with corporate agency and its focus on revenue rather than the client. It was an immediate success and he expanded, joining forces with Philippa to open a second office in Nailsworth. Sadly, Peter died unexpectedly not long after this. The team here are proud to continue working in his name, to the same exacting, customer focused standards that Peter originally envisioned.

    Peter Joy offer a broad selection of homes available in the local area. If you are relocating due to work, need more space with your growing family or just fancy a change, we will help you find your perfect home.

    No two tenants are the same and at Peter Joy we see our tenants as people with individual requirements. We listen to the details of what you are looking for in a property and then the search begins. Our staff use their local knowledge and work with you to help find your new home.

    Lettings can be confusing and that's why at Peter Joy we have kept our paper work and pricing structure clear and transparent. We are always upfront with all costs and unlike other agents there are no hidden charges or fees that can pop up through the tenancy.

    Our experienced staff have all been on the other side of the lettings desk at some point. We know securing a property, applying for referencing and moving in can be stressful, that is why we will answer any questions you may have about your application. If needed we can also help you complete your application/referencing forms and even advise you on how to set up your standing order.

    All of our properties provide detailed photographs and descriptions to help you in your choice.
