    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.

    Living within the hustle and bustle of Old Town, Josh is the Richard James socialite and the life and soul of the party.Ambitious, Charming and determined, Josh considers himself to be the next Wolf of Wall Street, working hard, earning lots of money and surrounded by beautiful women... this may be a bit too ambitious if you ask us and the closest he's getting to Wall Street is Wood Street.Josh is a die-hard Spurs fan and always has been and if he's not working on a Saturday, you'll find him in a local pub supporting his favourite team. Loyal, tenacious and committed, Josh puts the same amount of passion in to Spurs as he does his work and you can always rely on him to provide great results and a great service- It's just a shame his driving isn't as good as his sales pitch!Josh is the Harry Kane of the estate agency world- he made his debut with Richard James in 2012 and it wasn't long before he made it in to the first team becoming one of the most successful negotiators we've ever had the pleasure of working with.

    Grace Harmer-Woodage  - Trainee Sales Negotiator
    I would like to make an appeal on behalf of the Grace Harmer-Woodage fund, which is primarily focused on keeping me in Prosecco, Chinese food and the odd holiday to the Maldives every now and then. I understand that there are much worthier causes out there, but consider this if you will. Wouldn't it make you feel so much better to know that I'm happily sunning myself in some far flung exotic destination, boosting their tourism business and therefore the local economy; helping Prosecco wine growers stay in business (poor things must be struggling) and supporting local restaurants, building the community here in Swindon? Doesn't that sound like the right thing to do?

    Ellis- Rose Wigley - Lettings Negotiator
    We thought she was a bit bonkers conkers when she told us that fifty shades of grey was one of her favourite things. Seeing our look of horror, she hastily added that she meant the colour grey, not the pants film. Phew! Collective sigh of relief heaved. Yes, Ellis-Rose's favourite colour is grey (not rose?) bang on trend for interior decoration, whether or not you choose Elephant's Breath, Smoked Trout, Mouse's Back, Dusky Chalk, Ebony Mist, Slate, Mink, Purbeck Stone, French Gray, ...yes, we could go on but that would be more boring than watching paint dry.

    Natasha Heffron - Lettings Negotiator
    Natasha is a team player and very driven, she has a wealth of experience having previously worked in agencies in London but has settled well to her role in Swindon. Unfortunately, receiving parking tickets, along with her terrible parking has followed her! When not working you can either find her watching some rugby, playing lacrosse or drinking gin preferably in the garden on a hot sunny day. When we asked her friends how they would describe her the results were interesting...Flirty, Funny, Ditsy (always falling over) but ultimately loyal which we would agree with too! Consistently told she is like a real life Bridget Jones we're constantly on the lookout for her Mr Darcy or would she prefer a Daniel Cleaver?

    Janet Lorains - Sales Progressor
    It doesn't matter whether you've had the best holiday ever or the worst week at work - there is only ever one place you want to go at the end of the day... home! People travel far and wide to see every corner of the globe but they always wind up in the same place because, let's face it, there's no place like home. Having moved home numerous times both within the UK and overseas with the RAF I am well accustomed to the stress and all the pressure.So when you move home and once the sign goes up "Whoooo Hoo " we say it is now my role begins to help.My plan is to turn this nerve racking experience into a smooth transaction.I have to be a counsellor , a great listener and negotiator all in one, liaising with solicitors , vendors , purchasers each one eager to complete the process as painless and as smoothly as possible providing updates to all.Hopefully having been a Project manager , Relationship Manger an Legal assistant I have the skills to ensure a successful completion . I look forward to assisting you.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      The stress of moving was just taken away
      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.

      A breath of Fresh air
      Mr and Mrs G

      When Richard James Estate Agents started in 1991, I felt that a breath of fresh air had been injected into what had become a stale marketplace, from their smart offices to the colourful for sale/to let boards - myself an avid follower of the property market having our own property portfolio, it was easy to see that other agents in the town needed to look to their laurels. Over time, the for sale/to let boards began to 'take over' different areas of Swindon and surroundings. The staff in all the office's are keen and hungry and the managers always reliable and conscientious, no need to worry that your sale, purchase or letting will not be handled in an entirely professional manner. Richard James have handled many of our sales and lettings and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
