Meet The Team
“Where has time gone? I have been selling and letting properties for 34 years. Estate agency is certainly in my blood; my late father David Marshall was a founding partner of Marshall Shepherd and Redman a very successful firm of estate agents in Ware and Hertford. Dad gave me my introduction to the business, you could say a baptism of fire! We decided that once I had learnt the basics I would head off to the world of corporate estate agency”.
Having worked for 2 years with Connells, Bairstow Eves and 5 years with John H James and Company prior to them being bought out by GA Property Services. “Corporate estate agency is not as flexible or enjoyable as independent firms. I spent 15 years from 1990 to 2005 as a founding partner of Mather Marshall, another leading independent Hertfordshire estate agents. The time came to do things completely on my own and in 2006 I launched Marshalls. Through sheer hard work and determination, we quickly expanded and now have a team of 11 people selling and letting properties in the business with over 100 years of combined knowledge, we are all based in one office. We continually invest in technology and training and our ethos is to exceed your expectations”.

“I am writing to express my gratitude to you and your team for all your hard work in the sale of our property. Although the sale was relatively straightforward, I am aware that a great deal of work goes in order to achieve the desired result. I was impressed at the speed in which a buyer was found and very pleased that the asking price was achieved, again to the skill of negotiators. I was kept fully informed throughout the process and am grateful...”Thank you
