Estate agents Taylor Tofts are celebrating their tenth anniversary in Uckfield and looking forward to the future as the town proves popular with home buyers.
Partners Richard Taylor and Chris Tofts say new buyers and potential buyers tell them Uckfield is attractive, the people are friendly and the town has all the amenities they need, including good schools and a railway station.
Mr Taylor said all the schools have good Ofsted reports and the community technology college was highly regarded. “Now it has got a 3G pitch which is a brilliant facility, a big investment.”
Mr Tofts said it was good to see an active Chamber of Commerce helping to make the most of events such as the Tour of Britain cycle race when bunting was put up to give a festive feel to the place.
“There are lots of events going on throughout the year, including the carnival and the festival. They contribute to the community spirit and make Uckfield different,” said Mr Tofts.
He added that regeneration of the town currently being planned would make it one of the major small towns in the county. “It is a strong town anyway but with that it will be even better.”
The two said they chose Uckfield because the town was central in the county making it accessible to buyers and sellers from throughout the county, and from London where they have an office in Mayfair run by full-time staff who are actively involved in the promotion of the business.
They have known each other for more than 20 years and are good friends. They work well together and say they are lucky that their families are equally enthusiastic about the business because they continue working into the evenings after office hours.
Seven days a week
Mr Tofts said: “We are open seven days a week and are contactable each day until 8pm. Everybody buying or selling their home deals directly with either Richard or myself from the point of instruction to completion.”
Mr Taylor added: “We have a passion for our business and genuinely believe that no other agent can offer a truly bespoke service like that offered by our dedicated and highly experienced team.”
