GP Weston

About Us

James

Founder

For me, an estate agency is all about ‘helping’ people. I enjoy the whole process from the listing of a new instruction right through to completion and handing over the keys. I am proud to say that I will always go above and beyond – I have even been known to mow client’s lawns to help show a house off to its very best!

I have been an agent for twenty years and in that time I have been involved in nearly a thousand transactions. With this experience I am adept at dealing with all challenges that inevitably face the housing market. This first-hand experience also allows me to guide homeowners and their buyers through to a mutually desired result.

Having grown up in the West Country I am thrilled to offer my family a slice of the good life and I am always looking forward to doing the same for the clients of GP Weston.

Jessica

Founder

Having worked in the London market for over fifteen years I am now enjoying using this experience to assist my West Country clients. On returning home to Dorset a decade ago, I have been acquiring both residential and commercial properties on behalf of clients. As a result, I know what buyers are looking for in rural properties and how best to make homes appealing.

I listen to my clients and understand their needs which subsequently puts me in the ideal position to achieve the very best possible terms for them. Whatever the brief, I provide an uncompromising level of service. Establishing strong relationships within my local community is key to both my work and family life and I am delighted to be able to achieve this combination at GP Weston.

Our Vision

To change the public’s perception of estate agency by moving away from a transactional service towards a long term, relationship based one through helpful and regular communication. By interacting solely with experienced professionals who make full use of the latest technology, the stress of selling one’s home is minimised. The aim is for all clients to happily recommend GP Weston to friends and family.

Why Choose GP Weston?

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.

By becoming trusted advisors in addition to being valued estate agents, GP Weston sees a massive opportunity for long-term relationship building. If you find a good solicitor, builder, mortgage advisor, or travel agent you reuse their services time and time again so why not the same with estate agents?

GP Weston uses the latest technology, from software programs to drones (as well as embracing social media) in order to present your property as well as it possibly can be, to the widest audience (or a privileged select few) in order to achieve your desired goals.

Testimonials

James was incredible from start to finish when trying to find our new home, going over and above in every single instance from when we first met to when he gave us the keys. We were on the buy side this time, but we will certainly use him in future for the sell-side also! Thank you so much for all your help James.

Good morning Jessica. YOU must take the credit for seeing the deal through. You acted at all times with great charm, patience and courtesy – and complete professionalism – and are a great credit to your employer. I — INSIST — you tell your boss I said that because I am always quick to complain when things are the other way and it is such a pleasure to be able to commend you for a super job. Great job Jess!”

James provided us with a very professional and personal service from valuation, to viewings, through to completion. He was honest but ambitious about what was feasible, using years of expertise and recent market data to determine a realistic valuation. He then conducted all the viewings himself. As small problems with the sale arose (as they do in all property sales), James committed to working with us to resolve quickly. He made himself readily available through the entire process; having a responsive single point of contact, at the end of the phone or a WhatsApp, really sets him apart from other agents. I would thoroughly recommend James - he sets an example that other agents should follow.
