Why does Dockleys work in East London and Hertfordshire?
Most London estate agents cover just one area and a few postcodes. In the Home Counties, estate agents might have different offices spread across one county. Very few operate in both the city and the countryside, but I’ve been doing it for the last year and I’ve found it works brilliantly.
Trends in moving out of London
The area of London you live in during your twenties and early thirties usually dictates which area of the home counties you move to when the time comes for a slower pace of life. West Londoners go to Surrey, South Londoners go to Kent and people who have lived in East London usually end up in Hertfordshire or Essex.
It makes sense when you think about it. Great London and the Home Counties can seem overwhelming, so sticking as closely as you can to the area you know is bound to soften the impact of the move.
Understanding both areas
I know Hertfordshire, particularly Hoddesdon and Broxbourne, like the back of my hand. It was where I grew up and where my family still live. The beautiful River Lee flows from my old home to my new home and it’s no surprise that I’m happily selling properties at both ends of it.
I also know and love East London, having lived in Bow for over a decade. I know that East Londoners are the ideal market for Hertfordshire properties, through an agent who is both local to where they live now and local to where they’re moving to.
