Sewell & Gardner Estate Agents have just purchased a new office in Central Watford which is due to open in the Spring of 2014. After successfully building up their brand in Rickmansworth, Croxley Green and Chorleywood, Sewell & Gardner are ready to bring their distinctive levels of high quality and top customer service to the Watford market. The 2 men at the helm are Alex Sewell and Joe Rylett, both of whom are ex-Watford Boys. Alex, a pupil in the 1980s, lives in Watford with his wife (a teacher at Watford Girls Grammar) and 3 children, and Joe, a former pupil of Nascot Wood Junior School before attending Watford Boys in the 90’s, is a North Watford resident of with his wife and daughter. Alex & Joe’s friendship formed when they were both members of Fullerians Rugby Club and their camaraderie has developed into a trusting business relationship over the past 8 years working together at Sewell & Gardner. Their approach to Estate Agency is built on integrity and honesty and this has been installed in all the staff under their stewardship. Joe has been carefully progressing his career from sales negotiatior up to sales manager and he will leave the Rickmansworth office in good shape under the guiding hand of Kirsty Drabik, when he embarks on his new challenge as the manager of the Watford branch. Joe said “It is so exciting to have the opportunity to work in the town where I have lived for most of my childhood, where I attended school and where I now live with my family. My approach is simple, I treat people as I would like to be treated myself, and that ethos will continue to be my team philosophy in 2014.”

The new Sewell & Gardner branch will be situated just on the edge of ‘Intu’ shopping centre at the junction of Queens Road and when you drive around the ring road you will start to see the progress of the office refubishment on your left, adjacent to the YWCA building. Sewell & Gardner have been covering the Watford area for years from their Rickmansworth base, but feel that now is the time to establish a stronger presence and bring some fresh faces to the market with a fabulous new shop presence. Both Alex and Joe have experienced buying homes in Watford over the past few years, so they know what is missing and how to fill the gap. Alex said “I cannot wait for the chance to show people how it can be done and why our Sewell & Gardner brand has just been awarded the estate agent with the UK’s Best Customer Service, the UK’s Best Social Media for our community strategy and the best Small Sales Agent in the area, by The Times & Sunday Times newspapers (Dec 2013)”.
