Moving people since 1840

This may be the first time you have come across us, but we have been helping people move home since 1840

Our story

It all started back in 1840, when local landowner John German set up the business in Ashby de la Zouch, sharing his extensive property knowledge with friends and neighbours.

Fast forward to today, we are now one of the most well-known and trusted estate agents in the Midlands, selling, letting and valuing homes and land across the region. We remain independently owned and put our heart and soul into everything we do. Our number one goal is to provide outstanding service and value to the people who matter most, you, our customers.
