Andy Marshall

“Where has time gone? I have been selling and letting properties for 35 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 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”. Andy has lived locally for the past 35 years, he loves spending time with his wife Jackie, they have 2 teenage daughters. Enjoys sailing and has just started to learn how to play golf.
