Hi I’m Angela Westgarth, founder of The Personal Property Shop in Bishop’s Stortford and general property nut.

With a reputation on par with the likes of traffic wardens and bankers, it’s time that we raised the bar… by quite a lot. I’m your local property market expert, keeping a close eye on local house prices, what’s selling and what’s not and so I know the Bishop’s Stortford area (and beyond) like the back of my hand.

We were thrilled with the professional handling of our sale, after not being able to sell our house for about a year, Angela and her team stepped in with a totally fresh approach and sold our house for us in a few months. We were pleased with the updates through out the conveyancing process which helped us to keep calm and prepare to move when the time came. We would highly recommend the team at The Personal Property shop to anyone we know who is thinking of selling their house. Thanks again Angela and team.

Mr and Mrs Harvey

Many thanks for your Personal and Professional handling of the sale of our property. We would not hesitate to recommend you to anybody we hear may be thinking of moving. In fact we have already been singing your praises to all of our friends.

Dear Angela

This is written with heartfelt thanks for selling my mother’s bungalow.

You were professional, considerate, helpful, thorough, very approachable, always contactable quite unlike any estate agent I have worked with before.

What I particularly liked is the way you chased both the solicitors involved so that any mistakes they made were very quickly put right simply because you were on their case – I LOVED IT! This meant that we completed on time, in fact just 9 weeks from the date of the very first viewing!

The people who bought the bungalow thought you were wonderful too.

You have rewritten the description of what being an estate agent means and certainly do not fall into the old category. You truly understand the stress involved in buying and selling and I look forward to using your services again knowing that it will be as near to a stress free event as you can possibly make it.

Thank you Angela, The Personal Property Shop and you, are amazing and I have no hesitation in recommending you to absolutely everyone!

Best wishes
