Our approach to agency is made unique by the needs, wants and circumstances of a growing section of the market looking to buy, rent, sell and let properties.

These requirements come from a section of society branded as retirees albeit at varying ages and for many different reasons. This sector has influenced the way that we look to market and advertise properties in order to achieve the greatest exposure, to a captive audience and to do it efficiently. Experience has taught us that to label every retiree as looking for the same thing is foolish and incorrect however, there is a commonality in the required features that the vast majority are looking for and this commonality has steered us towards particular property types and developments.
