Firm’s fam­ily val­ues are se­cret to suc­cess

Harefield Gazette - - UXBRIDGE PROPERTY -

IN THE world of es­tate agency, it’s not of­ten that you come across a sin­gle branch fam­ily-run firm. But R Whit­ley & Co is ex­actly that – an es­tate agency opened by Ron­ald Whit­ley in West Dray­ton just be­fore the out­break of the Sec­ond World War and to this day re­main­ing in­de­pen­dently owned and run by Ron­ald’s sons and grand­sons.

Paul, Stephen, Chris, Richard and Jonathan man­age the var­i­ous spe­cialisms across res­i­den­tial and com­mer­cial sales and let­tings as well as prop­erty man­age­ment with the help of a fan­tas­tic team of ded­i­cated and ex­pe­ri­enced staff.

Tak­ing the fam­ily-run theme to the next level are Richard and Jonathan (pic­tured), who head up the firm’s suc­cess­ful res­i­den­tial sales depart­ment. Richard, 30, has been work­ing at the firm for more than 12 years and dur­ing this time has built up a wealth of lo­cal mar­ket ex­pe­ri­ence. Jonathan, 34, has worked in the West Dray­ton mar­ket for more than five years, hav­ing also gained a breadth of ex­pe­ri­ence else­where in the prop­erty in­dus­try in­clud­ing prop­erty man­age­ment and as a res­i­den­tial sales ne­go­tia­tor at a high street cor­po­rate chain of es­tate agents.

The broth­ers pas­sion­ately be­lieve that their com­bined ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence cou­pled with their fam­ily-run ap­proach and unique sib­ling re­la­tion­ship pro­vides their clients with a level of cus­tomer care, ded­i­ca­tion and pas­sion that other agents just can’t of­fer.

Com­ment­ing on their unique firm’s ap­proach, Richard ex­plained: “Our fam­ily val­ues are an in­te­gral part of the way our busi­ness is run. Hon­esty and in­tegrity are in­grained in ev­ery­thing we do and we strongly be­lieve that if we put our clients first, look­ing after their ab­so­lute best in­ter­ests, the rest will fol­low nat­u­rally”.

Jonathan added: “Hav­ing worked else­where and ex­pe­ri­enced how other firms op­er­ate, I can hon­estly say that the ap­proach of our fam­ily-run firm is such that each client is treated like a mem­ber of the fam­ily.They come first and I think this is the se­cret to our longevity and why we are still here after nearly 79 years”.

Jonathan and Richard work closely with their expert sales con­sul­tants, Mark Groves and Ben Gun­ton who as a team value, mar­ket, ne­go­ti­ate and progress sales dili­gently to sat­is­fac­tory com­ple­tion. And they have plenty of happy clients who have left more than 70 five-star re­views on the es­tate agency re­views web­site rat­er­a­gent.co.uk – ab­so­lutely worth a look if you are in the mar­ket for sell­ing your home.
