'New' Team at David Clark and Company, Ely

October 2019 saw the ‘new’ team at David Clark & Co estate agents taking shape in order to strongly finish a year characterised by concerns over Brexit, Stamp Duty, slow sales and a government ripped apart by leadership struggles.

This ‘Cabinet’ is made up of only strong members. 

David Clark, as an independent estate agent, has been in Ely for nearly 30 years and began his agency career here 40 years ago.

Barbara Harding has worked with David for over 20 years. She has an intimate knowledge of the area and is well known by the local conveyancing lawyers. Want your sale to go through? Put your trust in Barbara’s sale progression skills!

Aimee Wing has been with the firm for over two years. Currently the youngest team member but she has worked locally for 2 corporate estate agents and can now boast over 7 years experience, valuing and selling local homes.

Don Wheeler moved to David Clark and Co Lettings about a year ago and moved home from Suffolk to Sutton.  Mature and knowledgable, but with easy humour to handle the job of liaising with Landlords and tenants.

Our latest addition is someone returning to the firm after working for a well known ‘Country’ and upmarket homes agent in Cambridge for 15 years. Ashley Gwynn is most definitely a local having lived in Ely all his life. He had a 5-year spell with David at Clark & Stewart then spread his wings, but is now back with us. A great depth of experience that you should tap into to achieve the best price for your property.

Canvassing For Business

I can remember back in 1990/91 when I was with the forerunner of this firm (my god that's nearly 20 years ago!) that we were in the middle of a property market down turn that I personally believe was far worse than the current one. Osbornes Property Services as we were then called was suffering from a serious lack of income that also had a root in a serious lack of good saleable property to sell.

We were new, very professional, very keen, very hardworking and very keen to please but no one had heard of us. Our marketing budget was limited - we were skint to be truthful! What did we do? Well we set about making people aware of us by 'canvassing'. I wrote letters to other agents vendors, I dropped leaflets, we advertised as imaginatively as possible saying that even in that market we needed property for sale. Did it work? Yes to a degree and we certainly wound up some of the more established local estate agents who were not keen to lose instructions to newcomers like us.

£10k refit competition ??

I have just returned from hospital having had a procedure carried out on my foot/ankle that involves repairing a damaged tendon and realigning my foot by breaking my heel! While waiting to be called down to theatre I sat in my room checking e-mails - as you do when you want to take your mind off things.

There was an e-mail from Colin Clayton of Desk Centre Limited talking about a £10,000 office refit and all I had to do was create a blog post suggesting why my office should be the one to receive it! What an opportunity - here I am laid up for two weeks before I can mobilise on crutches and my office certainly would benefit from a revamp in 2013.

Like most surviving, small, independent estate agents we have done this by cutting costs, reducing premises and regrettably letting staff go. Our address used to be 20-22 Market Place but is now 20 Market Place only. We originally moved to No.20 from our first premises in Newnham Street in 1993- my then business par…
