    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.

    Callum Aslantepe - Sales Valuer
    Known as 'The Turkish Delight' by his former wrestling (yes, wrestling) team, Mummy's boy, Callum is the youngest member of the Wroughton office. When asked to write this bio, Callum referred to himself, as good looking (yawn), tenacious and fierce. Tenacious and fierce maybe but we will leave the 'good looking' part for you to decide... Callum grew up in Swindon and spent a lot of his childhood travelling back and forth to auditions in London for various adverts and TV appearances. When he landed himself the main role in an advert for SONY Playstation, he believed he would grow up to be the next Leonardo Di'Caprio acting alongside the likes of Margot Robbie. However, when he turned 21 he realised this dream may be slightly out of his reach and decided to join us here in the wonderful world of Estate Agency and trust us, he's never been happier! His last name means 'Lion' in Turkish, so we now understand where his fierceness and hunger for doing a good job comes from. With his passion, charm and eagerness to learn, we are sure it won't be long before he becomes 'King' of the jungle.

    April Coombes - Sales Negotiator
    From dancing on cruise ships to the wild and exciting world of estate agency, we know what you are all thinking... is there anything this girl can't do? The answer to your question is no, April really can do everything. Having grown up in Chiseldon, she knows a thing or two about the area and is definitely your girl if you need to know about the best gymnastics clubs, dance schools or the best places to walk, hike or camp.

If you're dealing with April, you're in luck as she's kind, understanding with absolutely the right amount of sass. Having worked her way to the top in the dance world, her work ethic is second to none so you can guarantee if she's told you she'll find you your next home, she really will! Intelligent, sophisticated and flexible in more ways than you could even imagine, April has gotten off to a great start and we are sure it won't be long before she's our star of the show.

    Alison Benfield - Sales Negotiator
    Thirty, flirty and thriving.... Not really, she's in her sixties but you would honestly NEVER know. Fun loving, enthusiastic and kind-hearted, Alison manages to win the hearts of almost everyone she deals with. She is our very own Katherine Jenkins and you'll always catch her singing, whether it is down the phone, in the loo or on a viewing... she's keeping everyone around her fully entertained. By day she helps to keep everyone organised in Wroughton and by night she does actually turn in to Katherine Jenkins and travels to Bath to sing in Bath Camerata... her angelic voice fills the room and travels so well that we can even hear it here in Swindon! Reliable, sophisticated, flexible (she can still get her leg over her head) and classy - Alison really is a woman of many talents!

    Cameron Harvey - Apprentice
    Cameron is a self-confessed, die-hard fan of his favourite football team Norwich City! He is 'football mad' and when he's not at work, you'll find him in the pub with his mates, watching (you guessed it) FOOTBALL on the big screens. After growing up in Norwich, Norfolk, Cam moved to Swindon when he was 15 and a few years later, landed himself a career at Richard James. He is attentive, integral and easygoing - all perfect traits for finding buyers their dream home. We also hear he makes a banging brew - his words not ours - so we'll have to let you know if he lives up to his claim.

      The whole team are down to earth
      Whilst I am writing I would also like to say that the team working in your Wroughton office, in particular Ross, Jo, Holly & Rob are superb, nothing is ever too much trouble, the whole team are down to earth and have such a welcoming attitude, it is a pleasure to work with them & they take the stress of marketing a property away in an instant. In my opinion Richard James are by far and away the best estate agents and I would not hesitate to recommend them.

      Brilliant, Personal, Honest service
      Brilliant, Personal, Honest service from Richard James. Can't possibly say thank you enough to Ross from the Wroughton Office. Without him I have no doubt that what was a very complex chain would never have completed. Ross intervened and negotiated with the various solicitors on a very regular basis, well beyond the remit of his job. His network of useful contacts in Wroughton was also extremely helpful. A very mature, well-measured and well executed service from Ross. Thank you again :-)

      Mr M
    • Seller Testimonial

      Very smooth process
      We have been very pleased with using Richard James in Wroughton to sell our home. Professional service from the outset, no surprises, very smooth process and to get a comment from one potential purchaser that the agents are the only ones they want to talk too is very reassuring! We've ended up with a deal we're happy with, in a time frame which suits all parties and even after fees, we're still better off compared to what cheaper online-only agents said we would achieve.

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      The stress of moving was just taken away
      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.

      Mr & Mrs F

      Excellent Service!
      Chelsea was fantastic, constantly chasing for updates and really driving the process forward. She not only did this for the house we were buying through Richard James , but for the entire chain. This really made things move quickly, without her i am sure the process would've been at least a month longer. Excellent Service!

      Mr I
    • Buyer Testimonial

      I will definitely use again
      An estate agent I will definitely use again for any future home purchase. Ensured that we were kept well informed. Jo was amazing in managing my nerves as a first time buyer. Definitely glad they were the estate agents. Thank you Jo for making a stressful process worth the effort.

      Ms B
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Always available when we needed them
      We recently sold and purchased through Richard James and have been thoroughly pleased with the service we have received from everyone. Richard, Ross and the teams in both the Old Town and Wroughton offices were very friendly and professional, always available when we needed them and made what was a very 'testing' time for us, a whole lot easier. The support we received from everyone was amazing. A huge thank you also to Jo Costin in the progressions team, my life line through the whole process. Jo was exceptionally compassionate, supportive and helpful

      Ms W

      Thank you Chelsea for being empathetic, kind and highly determined in helping us secure our first home.

      Ms C

      Updates at all times
      Having used Ross and his team to sell our investment property in Wichelstowe (of which he got us over the asking price) in 2015. We had the recent pleasure of dealing with him and his team to purchase our 'Forever Home' in Alexandra Park. He did a great job of getting the property through Swiftly, with updates at all times and even when there were slight hiccups in the chain. Ross acted quickly to get any issues resolved so we could move in the desired time frame for the chain. Thanks again.

      Ms D

      Nothing was too much trouble for these superstars
      Richard James have helped a few members of my family with house purchases in the Swindon area - in fact, I remember Richard James driving my father and I in his car to view the family home in which we spent many happy years - I was 7 years old at the time. It was fitting therefore, that the house my wife and I wanted to buy was a Richard James posting. There is a clear reason that Richard James do so well in the local area - and I believe it is largely due to the dedication and professionalism of their excellent staff. The purchase of our home (exchanged contracts yesterday) could not have gone smoother and the staff at Richard James were excellent from property viewings all the way up to exchange of contracts. I have nothing but praise for the entire team with a special mention to Callum Aslantepe who we first dealt with for viewings and sale negotiations and then a smooth transition over to Chelsea Parr who handled things after our offer was accepted. Both Callum and Chelsea were absolutely fantastic - always keeping me well informed on progress, always giving good advice - nothing was too much trouble for these 2 superstars. Many thanks Richard James, and many thanks Callum and Chelsea - you helped to make what should have been a stressful and turbulent couple of months into a smooth, and at times, dare I say, enjoyable experience! Hats off to you both!

      They would always be our number one choice
      We've used Richard James in the past for selling and buying, and they would always be our number one choice. They've a real friendly approach, listen to what you're looking for and wanting to achieve, and work damn hard to make it happen. I think Estate Agents have a tough job, buying and selling rarely goes without a hitch, but Richard James certainly help to get to you to the end with minimal stress and hassle. A shout out to Jess, who has been superb throughout our latest purchase, she is a real asset to the Wroughton branch. Well done all, highly recommended.

      Ms G

      The process was certainly made much easier by Ross
      We are continually told that moving house is the most stressful thing you'll ever do.. whilst this may be true, the process was certainly made much easier by Ross and his team. I was looking for a specific type of property so registered my requirements with them.. 6 months later; after a lot of hard-work, they found our perfect home! I know they then worked tirelessly to broker a deal that all parties were happy with. Without their professional expertise i don't think we would have found our forever family home.
