In our latest ‘Meet…’ Q&As, we spoke to Tom Storey, Director of Horton & Storey estate agents Shirley. Our ‘Meet…’ articles are just one of the ways in which we make it easier for our customers to get to know the team they’re trusting with the sale or purchase of their home.
At Horton & Storey, we want to provide a personable and relatable approach to serving our clients and believe that a good, independent estate agent is there to serve and be part of the local community.
The rapport and transparency we provide are there to reassure you of our understanding of the true importance of the home to the those that live in it. Below, Tom tells us more about his life outside the world of property.
