    I have worked in estate agency all my life (a long time) and have managed offices for one of the large corporate agencies in York and the East riding.Most satisfying was opening a York office in New St, 17 years ago. The subsequent success of this was based on a really high standard of personal service, attracting the more unusual properties and developing a particular niche in the villages around York.I now spend most of my time providing research and advice to developers and selling residential land, from single plots to multiple acreages. Working with a team of architects and planners to optimise the potential of a site is a very satisfying experience.

I have worked in all three branches of the company which has allowed me to gain extensive knowledge of the villages, market towns and city itself.

    Ally Horncastle BSc(Hons) 
    Having graduated with a Property degree from the Royal Agricultural University in Cirencester, I decided to leave my Yorkshire roots and relocate to the South West. I spent the following 3 years in Cheltenham working in a lettings department working my way up to Property Manager. I always knew I wanted to settle back up north and in early 2016 I made the move back to Yorkshire. I recently joined RM English as part of the Sales team in their York branch. My previous experience in lettings has given me a great basis with which to multitask, negotiate and create long lasting client relationships. Outside of work I enjoy running and country pursuits. York is a great city for running especially along the Foss in the Summer months but I always look forward to heading back home to the Wolds for a weekend in the country, log fires and a good brew.

Outside of work, I am currently training for an Ironman triathlon to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust. Pushing myself to the limits is what I do best.

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      I will be recommending them to everyone I know
      Louise and the team at RM English are brill!! From the outset they were confident that they could sell my house for the price I wanted. And they delivered what they promised not only remarkably quick, but way above my expectations. I'm not moving house (well not anytime soon) after finding my dream home through RM English, but if we were going to, RM English would be top of our list. Instead I will be recommending them to everyone I know!

      Mrs B - York
    • Buyer Testimonial

      excellent, helpful and always prompt and courteous

      We have just purchased a house marketed by RM English in York. Buying a house is stressful enough at the best of times and on top of that we were doing this from our current home in Singapore!

      One of the key things in reducing the stress level was the excellent, helpful and always prompt and courteous communication from Julie and her colleagues that was a great help at every step of the process.

      Mr and Mrs G - Singapore and York

    • Buyer Testimonial

      Mr and Mrs L - Upper Poppleton

    • Buyer Testimonial

      We appreciate everything that you did...

      Thank you for all your help & support with our move. We appreciate everything that you did to make our moving experience so easy. We are now settled and waiting on the arrival of our new baby, many thanks again.

      Mr and Mrs W - Strensall

    • Buyer Testimonial

      Nothing was a problem to them...

      I dealt with RM English over a number of months regarding the purchase of a property. There were many complications along the way and at one point the sale seemed to fall through as the vendors were unsure about the sale.

      RM English managed to pull the situation round and helped us through every step of the way throughout numerous difficulties. Nothing was a problem to them, and I can honestly say I enjoyed working with every member of the team - I found them friendly, helpful, courteous, and genuinely bothered about a good outcome for all parties.

      I wouldn't hesitate to recommend RM English to anyone looking to buy or sell a property

      Mr H - Green Hammerton

    • Buyer Testimonial

      Excellent service throughout.
      Recently purchased my new house through RM English, Louise and Rebecca especially were excellent from viewing / negotiating and through to completing the purchase. At times they helped keep the chain intact when it could have failed further down the line. Excellent service throughout.
