A makeover and new name for Guildford estate agents

Author: Michael Ginsberg

Meldrum Salter Edgley joined the Romans Group in May and the team have been celebrating the agency’s new look this week, as the eye-catching ‘for sale’ boards are erected, alongside the new office fascia revealing the agency’s new name, Romans.

Meldrum Salter Edgley (MSE) already delivered an extensive range of services in Guildford, including sales, lettings, and surveying, and thanks to the new partnership with Romans they can now offer clients expert mortgage advice, a property auctions sales room, planning expertise, and access to some of the most renowned new homes developments in the area.

Michael Ginsberg and Peter Tappin, previous owners of Meldrum Salter Edgley, have worked in Guildford since 1993, and they are both enjoying their new roles. Michael is now Head of Professional Services based in the Shalford branch in Anchor House alongside the property managers, surveyors and commercial agents, and Peter is the Land and New Homes Manager based in the Guildford branch on the High Street.

“Joining Romans offers our clients an abundance of benefits, and I could not be happier with the decision we made to merge with the established property company” says Michael.

Peter adds: “The property exposure we can now provide our sellers and landlords with is remarkable, from the award-winning website romans.co.uk, which is visited by over 94,000 people every month, to the extensive email campaigns and extra newspaper and magazine advertising.”

The makeover of the High Street branch creates a welcoming, modern environment; ideal for talking to the knowledgeable agents about the Guildford property market over a coffee. Plus, the team of experienced lettings agents have returned to the High Street branch, so they are ideally located to offer first-class investment advice in the centre of town.

James Boyden, Residential Sales Manager, comments on the Guildford property market: “We’ve experienced a rise in demand from buyers across Guildford and the surrounding areas, demonstrating the continued popularity of the area among investors, commuters and families. This sustained level of demand has ensured that property values have continued to increase year on year.”

With increased demand from tenants the average rent in Guildford has risen to over £1,500pcm, which is more than twice the UK average when excluding London (home.co.uk). Commercially aware experienced and first time investors alike, recognise these steady yields and the consistent capital growth as sound reasons for investing in the town.

“Demand from tenants is as strong as ever as we enter the winter months” says Iain Martin, Residential Lettings Manager, “commuters continue to be attracted to Guildford as the value for money is considerably better when compared to neighbouring towns and the London suburbs.”

Romans, incorporating MSE, has a full range of fantastic properties available to buy including modern apartments and spacious family homes, as well as numerous properties to rent in Guildford across all price ranges.

“We’re not predicting the market to slow down anytime soon so please feel welcome to come down to see the office transformation and find out more about the new services now available from Romans, incorporating MSE” adds Iain.
