We are also able to provide in-house Planning advice.
Tom’s first career was in classical music where he was part of the management team of a regional chamber orchestra, but took up his career as an estate agent in London in 1989. Having worked for Chestertons and Strutt & Parker, selling homes in Kensington and Mayfair, Tom relocated to Warwickshire in 2001 to work for Knight Frank and subsequently opened an office for Savills in Stratford upon Avon. Outside work, Tom enjoys singing in his local chamber choir as well as in a small eight part close harmony group raising money for charity.
