With a dedicated, experienced and inspirational management team focused on getting things done, exceptionally well, the business is in good hands. We're forward-thinking and forward looking, sharing what we know to ensure that what we promise, we deliver on. When you first come into a Richard James office, to buy, sell or rent, you'll be greeted by people who actually care about what you want and care about how to make the process as quick, hassle-free and as financially satisfying as it can be. We don't just talk about doing those things, they are embedded in everything we do and the way we do it - expertly and efficiently. A can-do attitude and team belief that anything is possible are part of our DNA. You may, after careful consideration, not choose us to be your agent the first time you visit us. There can be lots of reasons, completely outside our control that might impact upon your decision and you know what? We're okay with that. Because we know you'll remember us, you'll remember how good we made you feel, you'll feel you can trust us and you'll come back next time. Building those kinds of relationships builds our business.

    Having recently moved to Royal Wootton Bassett in the Summer of 2015, our recently refurbished office on the High Street is the first choice for local potential buyers, sellers, landlords and tenants in the Royal Wootton Bassett area. As well as Royal Wootton Bassett itself, we also focus on key locations such as Broad Town, Lyneham, Hook, Bushton and the surrounding villages.

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.

    Alex Hornby - 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 dreamt of being an estate agent since he was 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! When not at home with his family or at work helping to get people moved, you'll find him in Vegas on the back of a moped with a pair of aviator sunglasses, thinking of 10001 ideas to try and the make the house buying and selling process that little bit easier. This forward thinking, silver fox (to be) comes with everything you need to fulfil your house move successfully. Make the most out of him before he goes all Top Gear on us and drives off into the distance in some sort of super car.

    Alex Brown - Sales Valuer
    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).

    Ellis Smith - Sales Negotiator
    Ellis was lucky enough to have started his journey in our very first Richard James office in Wroughton. A cheeky chappy with good local knowledge, he took to the southern villages so well that he was quickly stolen by our West Swindon office to go and work his magic over there. Having grown up and gone to school in the town, Ellis gets homesick at the thought of leaving Swindon. Being a father to some tropical fish and a tortoise would give anyone a serious case of homesickness though, right?Well presented, courteous and always happy to help, Ellis has a contagious smile which will help brighten up any stressful house move and his polite and reassuring ways will help you feel more at ease.As a valuable member of our team, we are glad he gets homesick because it means he's not going anywhere, anytime soon

    Nikki Campbell - Sales Negotiator 
    A familiar face to many of the residents of Lydiard and Wootton Bassett, Nikki's local knowledge never ceases to amaze us. A self confessed Rightmove addict and suspected curtain twitcher Nikki spends her spare time trawling through pictures of every house within a 5 mile radius of her own lovely home in Lydiard. A friend of ours for many years, we eventually convinced Nikki that stalking the neighbours wasn't healthy and that her time could be better spent actually working in the property market. We were delighted when she finally agreed to come and join our our team It's not just the fact that she seems to know about pretty much every house that has come to the market in the last 10 years that makes Nikki so good at what she does. An earlier career as an air stewardess with British airways means she knows a thing or two about customer service and nothing is ever too much trouble for her. Some habits are hard to break and are actively encouraged. "Coffee, Tea, and Biscuits" are still offered to her clients on a regular basis and she will always check your seat belt is on if she's driving you to a property. Sometimes we think she still has her head in the clouds but she denies it. If however, she starts pointing out emergency exits on we'd appreciate a discreet call to our HR department where this matter can be dealt with sympathetically. A firm favourite with clients, and always eager help Nikki loves working in Bassett and seeing friends old and new. If you're passing stop by and say hello. You can be assured of a warm reception.

    Barrie Brocks - Sales Negotiator
    Barrie's quite new to Richard James although he has been helping people with their property shopping in Swindon for over 30 years. A relic of the 80's, he learned his trade when measuring sticks and black&white photographs were cutting edge. "Way before the Interweb even existed", he reminds us....(and we smile politely)Grandad, as he's known to his younger colleagues, is arguably the most experienced agent in the company and hasn't looked back since we swapped his typewriter for a laptop. A man with a fountain of knowledge and a new lease of life, Barrie hasn't stopped smiling since he joined us. He's like a dog with a bone... dependable, eager to please and very, very well trained.
