What we do

We’re known for our honest and informative approach to sales. A blend of common sense, decades of experience and innovative marketing makes for a unique service.


Founded by family in 1991, we are proof that not all agents are the same! Proudly independent and still family run, our focus on every client aims to produce outstanding results – and it works. People use us again and again.


We believe in honesty and credibility and that our service should be personal, friendly and flexible. We listen to, understand and cater to your individual needs.


We embrace innovation in our industry – in the ’90s we helped pioneer property websites. Today we’re the first in our area to showcase all properties on through-glass interactive touchscreens inside and outside our office.


Our valuation and sales archives stretch way back to 1970 and we’re the longest serving agent on Northcote Road. No-one knows the area’s properties quite like we do.


Statistics consistently show us to have one of the highest conversion rates of house listings into sales. This speaks volumes for the focused approach and hard work put in by our experienced team on every property we handle.


Our success has not just been with property – most importantly it has been with people. We’re one of the most recommended agents in the area – and we’re proud of it.


“Thoroughly professional, lovely people, a pleasure to deal with. Would thoroughly recommend John Thorogood to anyone selling a house in that area. “Independent” speaks volumes, thank you. I really don’t think you could improve, just keep doing what you are doing. It seems you have a great team there.”

Our growing portfolio is a testament to our refreshing style. A richer understanding of your property, extensive area knowledge and proper understanding of tenants’ needs means better advice all round.


Our team handle both lettings and sales – a refreshing approach offering a seamless and well-rounded service to those considering both options or switching between. It enables us to give better advice all round.


We don’t believe that one size should fit all. That’s why we offer fee structures, service packages, contract terms and marketing strategies that can be tailored to suit you and your property.


Our reputation for professionalism and transparency means we attract corporate tenants, relocation agencies and local clients. We engage only with the most suitable, qualifying and referencing them for you.


Our team has over 50 years combined local estate agency experience and a wealth of contacts. No-one knows the area between and around the commons and its properties quite like we do.


Our growing portfolio is testament to our style and we handle everything from small flats to large family houses. By listening to our tenants’ needs we’re able to better match people to your property – whatever its size.


We use online portals, print advertising and social media channels to market your property to a wide audience. Our high-profile office showcases all properties 24/7 on through-glass interactive touchscreens.


“I really liked the personal and honest approach of their team; they try to find what works for the clients and don’t give the standard pitch every time like other agents do. Brilliant team who communicate with each other and are all aware of what’s happening with the properties.”

Monica – Landlord, Broomwood Road, Between the Commons

Request a Valuation

Valuing property isn’t a science, so you won’t find us offering inaccurate “instant” estimates at the press of a button.

Instead Austin Thorogood will draw on his 30 years of local market knowledge to provide you with an expert, bespoke valuation of your property.

He can visit you at your home or carry out a ‘virtual’ valuation via Zoom or Facetime.

All valuations are free and without obligation…

“I was given an excellent valuation for my property between the commons which exceeded my expectations. Austin demonstrated an in-depth knowledge of the market in the area and the valuation proved correct.”
