Awarded Best Estate Agency in the UK at the International Property Awards for the past two years


The UK's Best Estate Agency

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 give 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 Charles Square in the balconies over-looking the iconic clock fountain, which prior to the redevelopment was the heart of Bracknell Town Centre. 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 2018, have opened a further 8 iconic offices across Berkshire and Surrey, whilst even relocating our Bracknell Office to a stunning Grade II listed building in the heart of the new Town Centre. We are also excited to be opening our 10th office in Farnborough imminently, our first office in Hampshire!

Positioned in key locations across the counties, all of our offices really do stand out! Our vibrant green LED internal displays draw the eye to our offices both day and night. 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).

Despite our growing network of offices, our desire will always remain the same as it did when Colin and James first dreamt of Prospect. We want to be the best, not the biggest.

"Since first opening our doors back in 1990, our aim was to always exceed customer expectations, through honesty, integrity and professionalism. The desire remains today and continues to be fundamental in everything we do now and in the future"- Colin Wells & James May, Founders of Prospect


Not every estate agent is the same

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.

As we said above, we’re not most agents. We don’t fall in the ‘some’ category either – we truly are different. We truly care. Customer satisfaction is the bloodline of our business, the ‘why’ for everything we do.

Our mission is to offer an unparalleled level of service excellence in estate agency. This is a commitment from each and every one of our staff, Trainee to Managing Director. It’s the Prospect Way.

All of our staff have an insatiable appetite to be the best and they really do care about our clients and communities, so naturally they go over and beyond. Being the best 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 a photo to legislation and legal matters and of course, customer service. The Academy is a highly successful staff development programme.

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. We have devoted literally thousands of pounds and hundreds of hours to training our staff, creating new services and ultimately ensuring our staff are able to offer the best possible service and advice to our customers.
