Hello there, my name is Ryan Toms, founder of Arthur Grace Residential, and I’m excited to bring you our first Arthur Grace Residential blog post. It’s my aim to blog regularly in order to bring you industry news and updates, information and recommendations from within our local area, our top tips for buying, selling and letting a property, and also posts about Arthur Grace Residential to enable you to get to know us better.
So let’s begin with a little more about us. How and why did Arthur Grace Residential come about? Well, quite simply, I have a love for connecting people with property. For me there is no greater reward than finding that next home for someone; seeing the excitement of them visualising themselves living in a property, then going on to plan room layouts, décor colours and finally moving in. It is such an exciting process.
I started my career in property sector back in 2003, and during that time I worked for a well-respected independent estate agency as well as a premium corporate estate agency, working in and around The Chalfonts and Chiltern area. After all that time, it became inevitable that my next step would be to set up my own property agency servicing The Chalfonts and surrounding areas. So in December 2019, Arthur Grace Residential was born, proudly named after my children. My family are my greatest motivation and it is only fitting for it to be named after Arthur, 8 months and Grace, 3. (I know if I have a third, that may cause some problems, but what a great problem to have!)
To ensure there is no lack of exposure to our clients, we have teamed up with Keller Williams, the largest worldwide property agency network, providing us with the latest software, unrivalled network of likeminded agents, professional marketing and first class training. This allows us to offer the benefits of both an independent and corporate estate agency but with a completely cohesive and personal service each person wishes to have.
My primary focus is you and to build long term relationships with my clients. Being a homeowner, landlord and investor myself, I have personally worked with a number of agents, and I’ve had an entirely different experience each time, so it’s paramount to me that a strong relationship is built with each of my clients, enabling me to continue providing a consistent experience for them whenever my services may be required, whether that be next year, in 5 years or in 20 years’ time.
Moving to a new home can be stressful, it is likely to be a person’s greatest financial commitment and asset, however it really doesn’t need to be this way. One of my key learnings over the years is that clear and regular communication is key to a successful outcome. My theory is that a 9 to 5 working ethos simply adds a barrier, which in today’s world is not viable or indeed, helpful. My aim is to remove this 9 to 5 barrier entirely and be here for you 7 days a week, whenever you need me. The process of buying and selling a home should be exciting, filled with a sense of adventure and most importantly, provide a happy experience.
