Selling your home
  • paragraph

    The Swindon property market is busy, buzzing and very competitive, so standing out from the crowd is important - and we've been doing that for over 20 years.

    We've got great teams at all of our branches in Old Town, Highworth, Wroughton, North Swindon,, 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.

    Alex Hornby - Managing Director
    When we think of Alex, there are four p's that spring to mind.... Passionate, persistent, particular and patient. His persistency and passion for estate agency is what has got him here today and if you ask the man himself, he will tell you he dreamed of being an estate agent since he were in nappies. As weird as that is for us to picture, we are thankful for his persistency and passion as Richard James honestly wouldn't be what it is today if it wasn't for the four P's that Alex consistently brings to the table. Although at his tender age of 31, he is already sporting a wonderful head of silver locks and supporting one seriously beautiful family, his mind is still that of an excited child in a toy store, but when we say toys, we aren't talking about Lego, we are talking about Cars.... SPORTS cars, really really expensive ones. Luckily he gets just as excited about cars as he does about houses and the enthusiasm in his ways will honestly get you excited too!

    Alex Brown - Branch Manager
    What did you want to be when you were younger? An astronaut? A super hero? Well since the age of 7 Alex has wanted to be an estate agent. After an agent in a sports car valued his parent's house he wanted to be 'that guy'. He loves Estate Agency and working for Richard James and he is always working late helping clients. He will happily talk about property and the market all day much to his girlfriends disappointment. He has been an estate agent for 21 years and doesn't plan on doing anything else. 'Having joined the busy team at Richard James I Love the people I work with and I feel proud to work here, we are a genuine team and all support each other.' Apart from spending all his time at the office Alex's number one job is being a dad to a 'mini me' 5 year old son who loves cars just as much as he does and being a supportive partner to his amazing girlfriend. He loves being a Family Man more than anything in the world. Alex is a motivated, hard working, very meticulous and fussy individual, but most importantly he takes pride in his work. However when he does get to relax his favourite place in the world is the French Riveria and he hopes to retire out there one day. In his spare time he likes to walk along the beach, cooking Italian food, cars and spending time in the gym (bit of a gym freak).

      We love that we can pop into branch any time
      "We have been so impressed with the service provided by Richard James from the start of our selling process right up until the point of exchange. All of the staff are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We love that we can pop into branch any time for any questions or even just a chat. Emma and Nikki were particularly helpful and supportive, with Emma showing us around the house we then went on to purchase.During our sale and purchase, we were provided with a Sales Progressor. Chelsea was our designated sales progressor and she was efficient, proactive and communicative throughout. We received regular email and telephone updates from Chelsea and she helped to bridge the gap between us and our own, our buyers' and our sellers' solicitors. Chelsea was really professional but also personable, even when there were complications with our sale. We cannot recommend Richard James highly enough. We would recommend them to our family and friends and, if we were ever to go through another house move then we would definitely go straight to Richard James.Thank you to all the staff involved with our sale and purchase."

We mostly dealt with Alex, Nikki and Chelsea who were all professional and friendly and were responsive to email and phone calls. Our sale did take a long time due to issues with the chain, but Chelsea and Nikki were proactive with chasing solicitors and keeping us informed of any progress. I would recommend Richard James Estate agents to anyone."

      we would not hesitate to recommend Richard James
      "Big thanks to All at the Royal Wootton Bassett office in particular Alex Brown and Ellis (even helped us on moving day when we had a delay with our removals) were very effective in selling our family home, we got £12,000 over our guide price and moved with 6 weeks of putting it on the market. They really understood the value in our home and in turn got the right buyers around. We also purchased through their Wroughton office too! The whole experience although stressful at times was managed very well and we kept informed of the ups and downs of the transaction. we would not hesitate to recommend Richard James to any of our family, friends or indeed anyone looking for the job to be done! Well done and thank you!"

      The agents were very knowledgeable and friendly
      "Fantastic estate agent, as buyers from outside the area they took the time to line up back to back viewings, maximising our limited time. The agents were very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Emma conducted the viewings and we would highly recommend Richard James to everyone who is looking to buy or sell a property in the area."

    • Buyer Testimonial

      We were amazed, grateful and happy
      "In October 2018 I contacted all agents in Royal Wootton Bassett. Guess who rang me in less than 24 hours? Guess who kept asking me how we were doing with the search every week, although they did not have what we wanted? Guess who kept asking how we are progressing with the purchase, although it was not through them? Yes, lovely Emma from Richard James!! We wanted to buy from this agency so bad that when things turned the other way, we pulled out and went straight to Emma, who had exactly what we needed at that time. Emma was so supportive, as well as Nikki! They both are very professorial, ready to help even when they are out of office. We were amazed, grateful and happy to find Richard James and, of course, our new home! I should tell you about Chelsea, our sales progressor, and she really is :) Chelsea would chase solicitors, sellers, brokers, and so promptly, I did not have to remind her! Chelsea knows her job and does it extremely well! Soon we will be moving to our new home! Big thanks to Richard James, Emma, Nikki and Chelsea! We wish you to succeed on property market and be number 1, as you are to us!!!"
