Henry Sherwood founded the Buying Agents in 2008 as a property buying agency. Initially, the company represented a handful of private clients who valued anonymity, best advice and outstanding service. This solid foundation soon saw it grow organically from repeat business and referrals.
Today, The Buying Agents still operates in precisely the same way. We inspire confidence and trust by maintaining discretion, service and satisfaction at the heart of everything we do.
Our success is principally down to building lasting relationships with our clients, their families, and advisers.
We have an enviable reputation throughout the property industry as one of the country’s leading buying agents.
“TRYING TO FORECAST HOUSE PRICES IS AN ART, RATHER THAN A SCIENCE. WE ASK THE EXPERTS WHICH INDICATORS THEY USE.
