Simpson & Partners

When I set up Simpson & Partners, I did so with the intention of bringing together the very best local property Sales and Lettings talent to create an Estate Agency service that would set the standard that all others in the area would be judged by. To set up a client-focused service that proved not all estate agents were the same. Coming from working for a successful national chain of Estate Agents, I soon recognised the strengths and weaknesses of a national chain's offering. On the positive side there was the marketing network. On the negative, there was a lack of regional focus and true local knowledge. By teaming up with colleagues and career contacts already established in our area, we opened the doors to our first office in Kettering back in 1998. Word soon spread and the market reacted positively to our offering. Shortly afterwards we opened up in Thrapston and just after that in Burton Latimer. The rest, as they say, is history.
