Our Background

One of the stranger anomalies of the UK residential property market is that it is usually only the seller in any given transaction that is professionally represented. Garrington was originally established in 1996, by TV celebrity Phil Spencer, to redress this situation by providing professional, independent assistance to individual and corporate buyers and investors. Thus ensuring that they make favourable and well informed purchasing decisions.

Since inception Garrington has sourced, negotiated and secured thousands of properties on behalf of its clients, acquiring private residences, second homes, or properties for rental or investment.

A common misconception is that Garrington is in competition with estate agents, but there is a clear divide; estate agents represent vendors and Garrington represent purchasers. Estate agents value the efficiency Garrington bring to the buying process, and appreciate that our clients are highly committed purchasers. In simple terms, a client with representation is taken more seriously.

Efficiency, along with Garrington’s reputation and considerable access to information, gives clients buying power far in excess of that of the individual or an unrepresented applicant. Through objectivity and a professional approach, Garrington is committed to setting the standard of advice and process for the residential purchasing industry to follow.

Looking for the right property in a big city is very different from searching in rural areas. Each environment presents different challenges, and Garrington is experienced at meeting them all.

Garrington offers a new level of professionalism and efficiency in the field of property search and acquisition.
