Having always been interested in property, Rupert bought his first house when he was at University at the tender age of 19. Since then he has had a long career in property, firstly in Central London in 1989 and then the Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire area through the 1990s, primarily dealing with the Prime property market of St Georges Hill. Then for 20 years as Managing Director of his own successful independent Land and Estate Agency in Esher and Cobham which he eventually sold in 2016.

Passionate about developing and renovating their own houses, including a number of listed buildings, Rupert and his young family relocated to a farm deep in the Devon countryside in 2010 along with their horses, a Labrador and a Dachshund, a herd of Alpacas and an eclectic collection of classic cars. They then set about renovating the farm and its cottages over a period of 7 years, replacing a herd of Aberdeen Angus with a Wedding and Events venue.

Rupert has first hand experience of what it takes to relocate to the West Country, having developed the right contacts, extensive knowledge and a deep understanding of what is required to guide his clients when making the best possible decisions and when it comes to buying the right property in the competitive West Country marketplace.

When not outside walking his dogs, fixing something on the farm or on his boat in Salcombe, Rupert loves skiing, classic cars, shooting and sometimes the odd pint in some of the best pubs in the West Country!
