    You can be assured of a warm greeting, often by Paddy himself (our part-time resident cavachon) at our, centrally located, Highworth branch.

    Situated midway down the High Street, we are privileged to work from a charmingly unique, four storey, period building, sensitively restored, modernised and refurbished by our branch manager, Grant O'Donoghue, alongside Richard himself.

    Our welcoming team, ably led by Grant's wealth of experience in estate agency, can be relied upon to support you throughout your property transactions.

    Do call in to say 'Hello', share a freshly brewed coffee and sit a while on our comfortable sofa. Feel free to peruse the professional brochures of our currently available, attractive properties whilst people watching from our prime view of Highworth life.

    So, for all property enquiries do pop in. We shall endeavour to make your visit worthwhile.

Selling your home
  • paragraph

    • The Wiltshire property market is busy, buzzing and very competitive, so standing out from the crowd is important - and we've being that for 20 years.

      We've got great teams at all of our branches in Old Town, Highworth, Wroughton, Town Centre, West Swindon, East Swindon, Royal Wootton Bassett and Faringdon. They know their local markets inside out and that knowledge really is power. Insight and involvement in the communities we serve puts us right where we need to be - in the know, ahead of everyone else. Our extended network of property and people gives you more choice in what you're looking for and provides a better spread of buyers for your home.

      We work for you. You and your home. You and your new home. You and Richard James. It's all about the perfect fit.

    The market moves fast... we move faster
    • Your home has to be seen in the right places by the right people at the right time - and at the right price. Valuations are always bang on the money because a key part of our sales service is ensuring you get what you want for your property. You're a one-off and so is your home. Detailed local market knowledge and recent sale prices are guides, but we understand exactly what it is about your home that makes it special, highlighting its unique features to appeal to the right buyers.

      We've also got more tech than you can shake a stick at. All our valuers and negotiators have the latest mobile devices and iPads all linked to our operating system, to our website and global property portals, so when we're out and about we have instant access to the market and to everyone buying and selling at the tap of a finger. We can arrange viewings instantly and we'll always aim to do that around you.

      Contact your local branch for more information today.

    Grant O'Donoghue - Branch Manager
    Something that Grant never tires of talking about is the fact that he used to work in London. "South Kensington in fact" he proudly tells anyone he thinks might be interested in (fairy) stories of sales to oligarchs and aristocrats from around the globe.And maybe these stories are actually true. (If a little embellished) because when it comes to selling high value homes he really does know his stuff.But life has changed for Grant, who recently moved to the beautiful village of Bishopstone, and is embracing country life with enthusiasm. A tweed jacket and shotgun have replaced the suit and tie, and his motorbike has been swapped for a horse. If you do spot anyone riding awkwardly around the village it's probably him.

    • Seller Testimonial

      We will certainly be recommending yourselves
      Mr B 

      Thanks for all your help, we are gradually beginning to settle in. We will certainly be recommending yourselves to anyone else thinking about moving locally.

      Clearly knowing their current home seekers wishes
      Mr & Mrs F

      The service we received from Richard James was outstanding, really helpful all the way through and all staff were brilliant. As you know we have a young family and we basically out grew our previous home and were thinking ahead to school placements, so we needed to move up the property ladder, with more living space downstairs, detached and decided on this area of Old Town. After Josh had taken us around several properties, we found our dream home, but then had the issue of selling our house at the time. The great service continued, as your staff took a lot of time understanding our home and then used this experience to help sell it, clearly knowing their current home seekers wishes (Ross Sutton). When a buyer was found we were helped all the way in negotiations and then ultimately in finalising everything. The stress of moving was just taken away during the whole process and that was down to the whole team at Richard James.

      We really appreciated the honest approach
      Mr and Mrs J

      Hi to all at Highworth,  thank you so much for all of your fantastic service that we received before, during and after our move. We really appreciated the honest approach and the time, effort and communication that we received which was all excellent. Everyone in our chain commented on the excellence of Avril and that, without her perseverance, we really wouldn't have exchanged and completed before Christmas.

      Thanks again

      Grant was strategic, bold and quick
      Miss M

      Grant was strategic, bold and quick, key attributes for a fast moving market. A safe pair of hands for your most important asset sale, I can say that as a customer and as an ex estate agent myself.

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      You really went above and beyond
      Miss F & Mr H

      Just wanted to say a HUGE thanks for all your hard work in helping us move into Eastrop before Christmas. It wouldn't have all come together without you - you really went above and beyond. Wishing you a very happy 2014 - we won't hesitate to recommend you.
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Thank you for the exceptional service
      Mr and Mrs C

      Dear Avril and Grant, I am writing to thank you for the exceptional service that you provided when my husband and I recently purchased in Ashbury. I really don't think the sale would have proceeded if Avril had not stepped in and liaised with all of the relevant parties.  If in the future we decide to move on we would have no hesitation in appointing you as our sole agent. 

      Once again many thanks for everything.

      Sympathetic, generous with their time and prompt
      Mr and Mrs F

      Thanks very much indeed, both for your time and the information. As promised, a few words you may like to use... Having viewed and entered into negotiations on several properties in the Vale of the White Horse we ended up dealing with nearly all of the estate agents in the area. In our opinion Grant and the team at Richard James offered by far the superior service from a buyer's perspective. Sympathetic, generous with their time and above all prompt, we were so impressed that if we were to find ourselves marketing the property again in the immediate future we would not hesitate to return to Richard James.
