Home town joy for new manager at Langport estate agent

A LANGPORT resident has taken on a new role in his hometown – helping other people join him.

Estate agent Chris Watts is the new residential manager at the Langport office of long-established property firm Greenslade Taylor Hunt.

But Chris is no stranger to the town, which he has called home for the past seven years.

“It has everything you need. It’s a busy and vibrant place with lovely river walks,” he said. “It felt like a lovely place from the moment I started looking for a home here.”

Initially working in property management, Chris made the switch to estate agency in a bid to pursue his love of housing and engaging with people.

“I love the satisfaction of finding the right person for the house,” said Chris, who has worked in a variety of rural and town settings, valuing all types of property.

He prides himself on his attention to detail and providing the highest level of customer service.

Away from work Chris enjoys pottering in the garden, enjoying dog walks in the Somerset countryside and sport.

Presently the property market in Langport is on the up, with plenty of people looking for homes, particularly at the £400,000 plus bracket.

Meanwhile, GTH’s Langport office is on track to record one of its best sales months.

Among recent sales was the 18th century Windmill Farm, at Pibsbury, near Langport.

It was bought at a GTH auction as a wreck 14 years ago, with the vendors spending 12 months restoring the property to its former glory.

And Chris feels there is plenty of pent-up demand in the market with people keen to move at all stages of their property journeys.

First-time buyers have been constrained by mortgage and cost of living challenges.

However, more people are putting these concerns aside and taking their next steps along the property ladder.

To contact Chris at GTH Langport, call 01458 250589, or call into the office at The Shopping Parade.
