 It's all in the name....

 

Did you know that this April marked our 10th anniversary?  We opened back in April 2007 and a question I have been asked constantly over the 10 years is where does the company name come from?  Well, the name Conway and Laker comes from my father and my late father in law whom sadly passed away later in 2007. 

 

Paul Laker, my late father in law worked very hard all of his life.  He always had a dream of having his name above a premise on the High Street.  Unfortunately this dream never materialised as he became very ill in 2006 and subsequently passed away in 2007.  So I thought what better homage to pay to someone to use his name along with my own father’s name someone who had also been a great inspiration to me throughout my life.

 

I have been very privileged to sell so many beautiful homes in Highworth and the surrounding Villages for the last 10 years and have met some wonderful individuals from all walks of life.  The majority of our business is from repeat business and recommendations.  I think as an Estate Agent my highest honour is when someone recommends me to a family member or friend.  That really inspires me as an Agent to go the extra mile for vendors and purchasers. 

 

I love my job and that probably comes across when people meet me, my enthusiasm for selling property is almost still as high as it always was when it all began for me in the early 1990’s.  I have worked for independent agents and corporate agents and they all have their strengths and weaknesses.  But when you engage with an owner or director of an Estate Agency and it belongs to them there is something more, in my experience, it means more, the passion and motivation is higher.

At Conway & Laker we offer a traditional estate agency service combined with all the latest technology.  The most important thing to us is the service we provide, this is a powerful tool and is something that all agents should offer, but do not always.  I pride myself on keeping people informed and our family business is all about the service!!
