Since 1990, Prospect Estate Agency has been successfully helping people buy, sell, let, or rent property across the Home Counties. Over three decades later, we are immensely proud to have maintained the very same ethos that we had when we first opened our doors – to always surpass customer expectations, be at the forefront of technology, and truly celebrate property. Only now, we have become the largest independent estate agency in Berkshire, Surrey, and Hampshire – and we’re here to stay!
Our vibrant green LED internal displays that are the Prospect trademark can now be seen in eleven key locations across the home counties. They really do stand out! We are also very proud of our connection with The Mayfair Office and their 350+ UK offices (not to mention the 100s of other offices across the rest of the world).
Our dedication to giving our customers only the very best service has won us several prestigious industry awards over the years, but no trophy or accolade compares to the hundreds of excellent customer reviews and recommendations that we receive on a daily basis. Nothing makes us happier than knowing that we have helped someone find their dream home and have turned what could have been a stressful process into a positive experience.

Way back in September 1990, two highly regarded local estate agents, Colin Wells and James May, embarked on a mission to build a property company that provided a ‘one stop shop’ and gave the ultimate home moving experience through excellent service, unbeatable knowledge, and valuable advice. Colin and James set upon changing the way Berkshire moved forever and Prospect was born.
Our first office was located in Bracknell and overlooked the iconic clock fountain in Charles Square (if you know, you know!). With a fresh approach and high quality service, we quickly became the talk of the town and were the only place to go for anyone considering a move in or around Bracknell. With recommendations flooding in and our client base growing daily, we needed to expand.
Fast forward to today and the clock fountain has gone, but Prospect is stronger than ever! In the past three decades, we have expanded dramatically, with nine further offices across Berkshire, Surrey, and Hampshire, over 12 departments, and over 140 members of staff – and counting! However much we increase in size, we still see our agency as one big family, and unlike many large agencies, you can still expect to bump into our founders Colin and James in any one of our front offices, catching up with staff and helping out with day to day tasks. Oh, and we still sit in prime position in the heart of Bracknell’s regenerated town centre, only now we are in a stunning Grade II listed building!
2021 was a big year for our expansion, having acquired two well-respected estate agencies in the local area: Castles, in Aldershot, and Wilkinsons, in Maidenhead. We are delighted to have welcomed both the Castles and Wilkinsons teams into the Prospect family and have enjoyed learning from their experiences and processes while sharing our own. Our acquisition of Castles also meant bringing Prospect’s vision to Aldershot – our eleventh location and an exciting new challenge for Prospect!
As we continue to expand and bring our vision to more offices and locations, our promise to you is that we will never compromise on the ethos that is the beating heart of our business – excellent customer service, state of the art technology, and a focus on celebrating property. That is what made Colin and James take the plunge in 1990, and it continues to be what drives us to succeed to this day.
It’s been said that all estate agents are the same and we suppose that just looking from the outside, this could seem the case. However, once you actually start interacting with estate agents, either High Street or Online, you really can notice the difference. Some care, most don’t.
We’re not like most agents. We’re not even like ‘some’ agents – we truly are different. All of our staff have an insatiable appetite to be the best and they truly care about our clients and communities – in fact, most of our staff grew up in the local area themselves, so you’ll receive expert advice from individuals with an unmatched knowledge and connection with the local community. Who better to help you find a home than the people who know the area inside and out?
Local knowledge aside, our employees are all part of our mission to offer an unparalleled level of service excellence in estate agency. This is a commitment from each and every one of our staff, from Trainee to Managing Director. It’s the Prospect Way.
Being the best doesn’t happen overnight; it takes hard-work, commitment, and lots of training. Our training and staff development is a true distinction amongst our competitors. Every member of staff who joins Prospect, whether Manager or Trainee, will spend a week in Prospect Academy.
Prospect Academy is an intensive training course covering everything property - from taking the perfect property photo to legislation and legal matters and of course, customer service. With constant developments in the property market, new legislation, and innovations we champion, Prospect Academy is our route to developing property experts in all fields of the industry.
Thanks to our intensive training programme, we can proudly say that each of our 12 departments are run by industry leaders in their field – and that is what makes us unique. With departments dedicated to transaction support, marketing, and move in support, you can rest assured that your move will be handled by experts at every single stage.

'Prospect' has recently helped me with selling my flat although my property was not the easiest to sell. 'Prospect' is represented by a team of enthusiastic, hardworking, professional, hardworking people who don't easily give up. I definitely recommend 'Prospect'.
I moved to Prospect from another Agency last year after a complete refurbishment of my flat ready to let and I am so glad I made the move! I am particularly impressed with Agnese and the way she is managing my property, very efficient, always cheerful and very helpful.
