About Richard Godsell

A Name Built On Reputation And Trust

Richard Godsell Estate Agents and Auctioneers were established in 1928 and are one of the longest established independently run Estate Agents and Auctioneers in the area. We have local offices in Christchurch and Southbourne, all occupying prominent High Street locations as well as an associated office in Knightsbridge.

Richard Godsell are a proud member of “The Knightsbridge Office”. This unique platform provide us with the ability to bring London and Home County buyers to the local market. The relocation of London based buyers seeking lifestyle changes and retirement opportunities has been an important factor in the local property landscape for many years and one that Richard Godsell have been keen to embrace and capitalise upon through our strong London connections and marketing focus.

Another area that sets Richard Godsell apart from the competition is our extremely successful Auction Department. With Auctions held every other month in London we provide local expertise with national coverage and offer a marketing opportunity that few of our competitors are able to offer.

For added peace of mind and accountability, each of our offices benefit from the expertise of an office based Director. Whilst our Sales teams are all made up of local people handpicked for their local knowledge and customer service, all of whom benefit from at least 10 years’ industry experience. This is a particularly important factor when sales involve complex chains and a steady hand from an experienced corner can make the difference between success and failure.

All of our properties are extensively marketed through a raft of platforms. In addition to the benefit of prime High Street Offices, we make use of the major property portals including Rightmove, On The Market, Zoopla and of course Richard Godsell.com. We feature a selection of local and national property publications and of course, are able to promote through our associated London Offices in Knightsbridge and Park Lane. In acknowledgement of the importance of the London buyer, we also undertake regular London based property exhibitions.

In addition to offering the services of Property Marketing through conventional private treaty, Informal Tender or Public Auction, we have a dedicated Lettings and Property Management Department which is headed up by Stuart Mason & David Midgley who have 40 years industry experience between them. Many of our investment buyers ultimately use our Lettings and Property Management Service to find professional tenants for their investments.
