Having spent years working for some of the leading corporate and independent agencies in the country James and Jessica both grew up in Somerset and Dorset before carving out successful careers in the London property market. Fast forward by 20 years, and now both founders of GP Weston have returned home to the South West to give their children the same childhoods that they so enjoyed themselves.
Having gained more than enough confidence and experience (along with more than a little disillusionment in the current way in which some estate agents operate) James and Jessica wanted to set up GP Weston to cast aside corporate red tape and targets. GP Weston brings fresh enthusiasm to the West Country property market.
Having earned their stripes for some of the biggest corporate agencies in the country James and Jessica saw first-hand how the pressure of targets can incentivise the wrong sort of behaviour. Overvaluing, cross-selling of other services, and poorly put together deals, do not do the homeowner any favours.
