Goadsby has been providing professional services across residential and commercial property markets since 1958 and has remained an independent company throughout this period.
We value our independence because this has given us the freedom to adapt to changing markets, but also to develop our services with the core objective of delivering the highest professional standards to clients and customers.
We have grown to become one of the leading independent estate agents in central Southern England and the largest covering Dorset, Hampshire and South Wiltshire.
Goadsby is one of the UK's top ranked property providers and with 24 residential sales offices, 15 letting departments and 3 commercial offices it is in a prime position to service all your property needs.
Goadsby was established in 1958 by the founding partners Mr Goadsby & Mr Harding with offices in St. Peters Road, Bournemouth that handled both residential and commercial property work.
The business grew to a clutch of branches in the Bournemouth and surrounding area and during the mid 1980’s, the business witnessed considerable expansion, with a number of strategic residential business acquisitions and cold starts. At this time the business also took the first real steps towards specialisation within our Commercial Agency and Professional Services disciplines at our Bournemouth Head Office.
The business incorporated in 1984 and a major management buy-out was completed in 1990.
Throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s, the Group continued to expand at all levels. Notably its residential branch network expanded considerably with offices to the north of Bournemouth upon the Dorset/Hampshire border and into South Wiltshire together with further expansion across South and West Dorset.
January 1st 2005 saw a major expansion of the Commercial business, with offices in Southampton and Winchester and a major rebrand took place during 2006.
Expansion since the rebrand has seen a further 5 offices in Hampshire which takes the group to 28 offices in Central Southern England and a total staff complement of over 300.
The Group has specialist teams covering all aspects of residential and commercial business. These include Residential Sales and Lettings, New Homes, Land and Mortgage Services, whilst through our commercial offices specialist departments include: Business Space, Retail, Hotels and Leisure, Investment Consultancy, Special Projects, Survey and Valuation, Building Consultancy, Town Planning, Property Management, Corporate and Public Sector Consultancy.
The Goadsby network extends across Central Southern England, its core residential activities spanning the three counties of Dorset, Hampshire and South Wiltshire from 25 residential branches. Its Commercial services are provided from 3 established offices in Bournemouth, Southampton and Winchester.
Our zone of influence radiates to key centres along the south coast, notably in delivering specialist-sector services such as Town Planning, Building Consultancy, Land and Development Consultancy, Survey and Valuation, Hotels and Leisure, Investment Consultancy, Property Management and also CAD Services.
Project-specific client work extends throughout Southern England and beyond. The Group has an employee base and critical mass which enables it to exert considerable influence over markets well beyond its core patch. Our Business Space, Retail and Professional Services teams rank amongst some of the largest in the UK.
