One of the founder members of Chantries, Anthony is a hugely experienced estate agent having joined the industry in 1996. Born and raised in Merrow, where he now lives with his wife and two children, he has a deep knowledge of all types and styles of property throughout the Guildford area. Anthony is jointly responsible for market analysis and the overall direction, business development and management of the company. He works in close conjunction with his partners on new marketing initiatives and PR but retains a high profile presence in Guildford operating very much at the sharp end of the business on a day-to- day basis. Outside interests include golf, cooking and reading.
With 26 years experience in estate agency, there isn’t much Chris doesn’t know about selling houses. He began his career in Cornwall where he was raised, before moving to Guildford in 1998. Having lived and worked here for the last 19 years, he has an in-depth knowledge of the area; invaluable when matching people to property. Chris has also developed our specialist ’property match’ service, which has produced some outstanding results over the last five years by exposing some highly individual and unique properties to serious local buyers. Outside interests include keeping fit, playing golf and spending snatched weekends off back in Cornwall.
Gavin’s estate agency career started in Guildford in 2006 when he joined Gascoigne-Pees as a junior negotiator. He soon progressed within the company to assistant manager of the Guildford office and was regularly awarded the accolade of top salesperson.
Having lived in Guildford for 20 years, Gavin was keen to come back to the area after working in Weybridge for the past 5 years, where he was dealing with a cross-section of the market, including selling properties on the prestigious St Georges Hill private estate. Gavin joined Chantries at the beginning of the year to help grow our sales team and brings with him a wealth of knowledge of both the property market and the local area.
Outside of work, Gavin is a keen golfer and likes to keep fit at a local gym.
Heading up the rental department, Andy began his lettings career in Claygate in 2003, after spending his formative years as a football coach, working for Adidas. Here, Andy helped to establish the rental department for Grosvenor Billingshurst estate agents where he spent 12 happy years helping to grow the business. Having subsequently worked in the frenetic south west London market for two years, Andy joined the expanding lettings department at Chantries in 2017 where his experience and ARLA qualification have been invaluable, given the ever changing legal landscape in the industry. Andy brought with him a strong work ethic and an eye for detail, as well as a ready sense of humour, finely honed in part because he is a long-suffering Spurs fan. Outside of work, Andy is kept busy by his three children and loves running, rugby, food and wine.
