Welcome to HouseHunter, our local property & lifestyle magazine... Welcome to the December edition of our HouseHunter magazine. You will find a selection of some of the properties available, both for sale and to let, across our network of local offices. We are getting into the Christmas spirit already at TuckerGardner, which started with our Histon office once again supporting Operation Christmas Child, by being a drop-off point for the shoeboxes full of childrens’ toys and gifts. We are always glad to receive them and never cease to be amazed by the generosity and festive goodwill of the local community with nearly 300 boxes received by the end of November. As mentioned in the last issue, our Ely office is supporting the Ely foodbank with their work in providing Christmas Hampers to foodbank clients over the festive season. They have been asking for donations of traditional, non-perishable, Christmas fayre to be dropped into our branch on the Market Square in Ely. So far they have filled 7 large boxes to the brim with Christmassy treats and with the other offices lending their support there should be more to come. All that’s left is to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Alex, John & Simon


Residential Sales Jan Gannon, Office Manager Histon Office I have worked in Estate Agency since the mid 80’s, joining TG in 2002. I’ve spent the last 11 years building a solid reputation in Histon – where I live. I have a strong desire to change the generally poor opinion of Agents by providing a service second to none. In my free time I enjoy playing table tennis, darts and reading (mainly autobiographies).

TuckerGardner teams care. We listen to each client’s needs and focus solely on what’s best for you. We have a buddy system in place to make sure that there’s always someone in the office to help. We don’t trap sellers in a lengthy agency contract or pressure any of our team to meet internal sales targets, because we don’t actually have any. We treat each sale and person as unique to make it easier (even enjoyable) for you to sell or buy your home. Contact the teams on:

Residential Lettings Alex Preston, Property Manager Cambridge Office I have been working as a Property Manager in the Cambridge Office for seven years now, during which time I have grown to know and love Cambridge and the surrounding area. No two days are the same here and I love the variety in my role!

All of our lettings teams work on the core principle of mutual respect and of trying to do our very best by landlords and tenants alike. The landlord is our client so we must endeavour to look after their interests, recognising that we are custodians of their property and of their money. By the same token, we also have a duty of care to our tenant customers and we must always remember, and respect, the fact that the property is their home for the duration of the tenancy.
