Richard Pratt - Sales Director, Aylesbury Office 
With over 35 years experience (32 in Aylesbury) since leaving Aylesbury Grammar school in 1987 I think it’s fair to say that Richard has learnt a thing or two about the local property market. His passion for the job is unquestionable with a reputation built on personal recommendations. 
Richard’s experience has led him to identify a definite gap in the market for a more personal and bespoke approach to buying and selling a home with that, a deep burning ambition to exceed expectations at the same time delivering an unrivalled level of customer service. 
A keen sports fan and fitness fanatic Richard is happiest in the ‘middle of nowhere’ walking his beloved dogs Molly, Poppy and Ted. 
Whether buying or selling, Richard will handle the transaction from start to finish. You can trust in him that he will get the deal done.
