Locate in Kent

28 November 2016

Richard Stafford, one of the most highly respected figures in Kent’s commercial property sector has launched his own business in Ashford called Stafford Perkins Chartered Surveyors.

Richard has worked in commercial property in Kent for the past 30 years, first with Geering & Colyer, then Colyer Commercial and, for the past decade, as a Director with Ashford-based Taylor Riley Stafford. He has also been recognised both in Kent and nationally for his achievements, such as being credited as the top deal maker in Kent from 2012 to 2015 by commercial property magazine Estates Gazette.

Speaking of his decision to launch Stafford Perkins, Richard says: “The time was right for me to set out my own vision of what a modern commercial property consultancy should be. My established clients have responded very positively and I’m looking forward to delivering a highly personalised service which is tailored to their own individual needs.

“There was never a doubt that I would choose Ashford as the home of my new business. It’s a dynamic and fast growing town that is ideally suited to my own aspirations to expand my services to clients both old and new,” adds Richard.

After working in Kent since 1985, Richard has experience in lettings, valuations, real estate development, property management, rent reviews and lease renewals, land acquisition and contract negotiations. Richard also has particular expertise in working with agricultural and rural business clients, assisting landowners to maximise their business interests across rural Ashford, Romney Marsh and surrounding districts.

A strong interest in planning also allows Richard to advise on local planning matters and make planning applications for basic change of use on behalf of clients.

Stafford Perkins is a letting agent for the first phase of the Commercial Quarter in Ashford, a multi-million-pound town centre office and retail scheme from Kent-based property development company Quinn Estates.

Congratulating Richard on his new venture, Director Mark Quinn says: “Having known him for more than 20 years, I’ve been happy to instruct Richard to market the Commercial Quarter scheme in Ashford along with other properties. Richard impresses with his in-depth knowledge and professionalism and I wish Stafford Perkins nothing but success in the future.”
