For us, being independent means so much more than not being part of a high-street chain. It means being part of a network of similarly like-minded and independent property professionals (surveyors, mortgage and insurance brokers, solicitors) - voluntarily. It also gives us the freedom to think outside the box: the freedom to create a completely virtuous property circle. Our knowledge of, experience in, and commitment to each of our services enriches and amplifies all the others. It's no exaggeration to say that, whatever your local property interests, we can cater for them.
We officially opened our doors for business on 10th October 1983, at 51 The Mall, Ealing. Thirty years later, we still operate from that same shop-front, although we now have other offices as well: in Acton, Greenford, Northfields and Sherborne.
In the early years, Rolfe East comprised two young and ambitious estate agents with a passion for communication and a commitment to sales. That passion and commitment remain to this day, but they now apply to a much broader range of services including lettings, property management, new homes, and commercial sales and lettings. Our growth and development demonstrates just how long-standing we are.
Both of our founders went to school in Ealing, our third director Jon Hadfield has clocked up 23 years in Ealing. Many of our staff are similarly long-serving. This - and the thousands of people we've served in the local community over the years - demonstrates just how local we are.
