The brief

Years after helping a client find the perfect country house, Richard found himself at the start of a completely new search – for the very same client. They now needed to be closer to Bath and ideally they wanted to build their own home. The perfect plot for a new, contemporary home was soon found off market and subsequently bought.

The outcome

Time passed and before work had even begun, the family realised that what they actually needed was a house in the centre of Bath. Fortunately, Richard was working with another client at the time who he knew would be interested in buying the plot; an introduction was made and an off market deal was quickly concluded. This enabled the new search to begin – for a two storey house in a quiet location with a large garden plus views of Bath and ample parking. Within three weeks, Richard had found the perfect match. It wasn’t on the open market and even when he discovered that the owner of the property couldn’t find anywhere suitable to move to, Richard stepped in to help her find a new house too. Within a week, the chain was complete and contracts were exchanged on all three properties four weeks later.


“When we decided to move closer to Bath, we contacted Richard to get him to help us in our quest. He had a thorough understanding of our brief and our desires and demands were fully met. We wanted to find a contemporary house with potential to develop. Richard came through for us, with a property that was not even on the market.

Last year we decided to make another move, this time into the centre of Bath. A large house that would have potential to model and redesign to our tastes and requirements, preferably with views and in a quiet location – so not too many demands there then!

Richard took on our brief with understanding and eagerness to meet our expectations. Within three weeks of appointing him he had found something not on the market that fitted all of our requirements. Yet again we have to thank him for taking us and our demands on and fulfilling our hopes. Why would we ever want to go back to the stresses and disappointments of house hunting on our own when using Richard can make life so smooth and stress free?”
