Speak to Mark Forsyth-Forrest about this property
I started Seccombes 34 years ago along with Philip Seccombe. I now own and run the Shipston-on-Stour agency independently. Having lived in the area all my life, I know the area inside out and likewise the property market too.
I learnt my trade with the Stratford office of Knight Frank back in the 90s before taking the step into running my own agency. I pride myself on going the extra mile, working as hard as possible for my clients, and always keeping them informed of progress. Communication is key with estate agents!
