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 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.

    Alex Hudson - Sales Valuer
    If Alex was a DJ he'd be Tony Blackburn. Our very own silver fox, with a smooth line in patter, he likes to think of himself as the housewife's favourite. Well informed, well groomed and well smooth (debatable), he's one of the easiest going people you'll ever meet, Alex has been working at RJ since 2001 and knows his job inside out. Professional and reassuring, he's listed more homes for us than anyone else.

    Gareth Wyn Thomas - Sales Negotiator
    Gareth likes to think of himself as an international 'agent'. In reality he's moved 75 miles east from Cardiff. He also considers himself to be a bit of a fashion connoisseur, although some of us beg to differ! Extremely proud of his heritage, he's been known to recite Welsh hymns in his sleep, which stands him in good stead to build great rapport with our 'international' purchasers! He is a great conversationalist and his local knowledge is amazing for someone so 'international'.

    Jake Bunce - Sales Negotiator/Valuer
    We would describe Jake similarly to how we would describe a lavish, five bedroom, Victorian townhouse...beautifully maintained and immaculately presented with a wealth of charm and character. Having grown up in a lovely little village outside of Swindon, Jake couldn't wait to start work in the hustle and bustle of Old Town which was somewhat different to the views of open fields and the Avebury Stones that he's used to. Being the youngest member of the Old Town office, Jake has bought plenty of sass, positivity and energy to this top performing team, always making sure his customer service is nothing short of absolutely fabulous.

    Georgia Wyatt - Sales Negotiator
    As a sweet and innocent little girl, Georgia always pictured herself becoming a Princess, owning a pair of glass slippers and travelling around in a pumpkin. However, having lived in Swindon her entire life, she soon realised that this dream of hers may be a little far fetched and she settled for a job with us here at Richard James. When she was taken on full-time, she gave the boys in East Swindon a run for their money and soon gained the Princess status she had always dreamed of, the only difference is she swapped the pumpkin for a Ford Fiesta. Luckily for the clients who have the pleasure of dealing with Princess G, her caring ways and drive to help people move means she's very good at making dreams come true. She may be the youngest member of our team but this princess will soon become our Queen.

    Kelly joined our Old Town office as a Sales Negotiator in January 2020 and has been thriving ever since. She enjoys spending time with her family outside of work, especially her puppy dog Ruby!

    Lisa Child - Administrator 
    Lisa has been working for Richard James in our Old Town Office for 14 years now and she is still going strong! There is never a dull day with Lisa, she is always happy and laughing and if you know her, you will know that boring is not a word in her vocabulary. In her spare time you will usually find Lisa packing for her next luxury holiday somewhere hot or socialising with friends while sipping a cocktail or glass (bottle) of champagne with some good food. To balance all the craziness, Lisa also enjoys Zumba, Yoga and going to the gym.

    Sadie Collick - Sales Negotiator
    Sadie has recently joined us here at Richard James and it's clear to see already that she's got a bright future ahead of her. Considering she's got a red belt in kickboxing (and only a couple away from being a black belt), this means Sadie is highly competitive, and won't give in until she's found the perfect house for you. Sadie has worked her way up, from selling pasties to hopefully selling people their dream homes. Outside of work, Sadie loves any sort of water activities and attempts to force all of her friends to go surfing and camping with her. This is probably where she gets her exploration side from, as she loves travelling and seeing new places; whilst also staying fit and healthy at the gym. Sadie is definitely one to watch, and we already know she's a force to be reckoned with.

    Ellis- Rose Wigley - Lettings Manager
    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.

    Jade Wilkes - Sales Progressor
    If you happen to chat to Jade during the next few months while you are buying or selling your property, she comes with a Health Warning. She is insanely happy. She will be smiling. A lot. Like all the time. A) Because she's very happy in her work but B) - which probably should be A) she is getting married. Aaah.  Having spent last year wedding planning , thinking about THE BIG DAY, the dress, the shoes, the bubbly, then the honeymoon on Santorini (what, couldn't persuade him to go to Disneyworld, Jade?) and is this year now just being blissfully, happily married for, well, ever. Service with a smile, always.

    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.

    Laura Woolley - Sales Progressor
    Laura works as one of our fantastic Sales Progressors - perfect for her bubbly personality! She'll look after your sale from the time the offer is agreed to the time you hand over your keys. When she's not at work, you'll find Laura spending time with her family or most frequently, adding to her famous shoe collection... We're waiting on photographic evidence, but a girl can never have too many shoes, right? Not for much longer though, as this expecting mummy-to-be will have a tiny bundle of joy to care for (oops, did we mean buy a miniature shoe collection for).

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      The stress of moving was just taken away
      Mr & Mrs F - Old Town

      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.
    • Seller Testimonial

      A breath of fresh air
      Mr and Mrs G - Old Town

      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.
