Beresfords are Essex’s largest family-owned independent estate agency and have been successfully operating for 50 years. Established in 1968 by RD and EG Beresford as an independent practice in Upminster. Our current Chairman and Managing Director Paul Beresford joined the original office in 1975, maintaining the same key values his parents instilled at its creation. As a constantly developing agency, we’ve combined traditional principles with innovative marketing techniques, bringing us to the forefront of property marketing. Beresfords’ success has been boosted by its loyal and enthusiastic employees. Thanks to our high staff retention rate, many of our team have been in the company for well over a decade. We now have over twenty Beresfords’ offices and departments throughout Essex and into Greater and Central London. We are very fortunate in being able to say that a large proportion of our business is from personal recommendations and repeat business. For some of our clients, we have sold their properties four or five times! They understand the importance of being greeted by a familiar face and having at their disposal someone who knows the local market inside out.
