Be moved by our service...

In 1987, we opened our first office in Bracknell with nothing but a typewriter and rolodex. Fast forward to today and we’re one of the largest and most respected property groups in south east England. 

In 2016 we joined forces with our sister company Leaders, and since then more respected brands have joined forces with us so now we have a combined UK network of over 215 estate and letting agencies! 

Whether you are interested in buying, selling, renting, town planning, surveying or mortgage advice, we provide our customers with a full range of property services. And by keeping all of our services under one roof you will always have direct access to expert advice from professionals, no matter what your requirements are.

Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG)

At Romans, Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) are responsibilities we take very seriously. As part of the Leaders Romans Group, we want to be transparent to our clients about the way we do things as a company.


One of the key areas that we are heavily invested in is sustainability and our impact on the environment. We have pledged to be carbon neutral by 2030. To achieve this, we have made many changes across the business with more to come. These include:

  • Using recycled for sale and for let boards
  • Planting trees for every property sold or let - check out our latest trees report here
  • Transferring our offices onto renewable energy
  • Encouraging remote working where feasible
  • Going paperless where possible
  • Implementing a zero to landfill strategy.

Our staff are at the heart of everything we do. We work hard to ensure they feel supported, providing wellbeing webinars, meditation sessions, mental health first aiders, and an employee assistance programme.

It’s of the utmost importance to us that equality, diversity, and inclusion are at the forefront of everyone’s minds. We have an internal training course on this which all staff have to take. We want to ensure our people all have the same opportunities, are treated fairly, and feel safe enough to speak up if they witness or experience discrimination.

At Romans, we want our staff to feel like they aren’t just “in a job”, but that they can enjoy a long-term career. We have an extensive list of in-house training courses, and we also provide career frameworks so it’s clear what is required of an individual to be promoted to the next level.

Achievements and promotions are celebrated all year round, including our quarterly awards ceremonies and announcements in our CEO’s weekly newsletter.

Not only do we aim to help and support each other, but also the wider community. Many of our agency branches support charities local to them, and at Head Office we make a large local food bank donation every year. Our chosen charity is MacMillan Cancer Support, and teams across the business are fundraising in different ways to raise as much money as possible.



Governance is a vital part of the day to day running of Romans. To ensure business isn’t disrupted, we have continuity plans in place so that our service to clients is never affected. We have a proactive approach to risk management, always checking for potential risks and heavily investing in cyber security.

We take the management of our customers data very seriously and protect it via robust data protection policies. We have a strong data protection team in place headed up by our own in-house Data Protection Officer.

Regulations in the property industry are ever-changing. We proactively keep on top of these, not only to ensure we can prepare but to make sure we can help our clients prepare and be compliant too.
