Welcome to HouseHunter, our local property & lifestyle magazine... Welcome to the March 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. So far this year we have seen an unprecedented demand for properties to buy, heightened by the lower volume of properties coming to the market - nearly 12% less properties have come to the market since January compared to the same period last year. This is particularly evident in the city itself, where over 93% of the properties we’ve sold since the 1st of January have been sale agreed at or above their asking price. Therefore, there has never been a better time to sell. With this is mind, if you are considering selling, please do give one of our local teams a call. They’ll be happy to talk you through how the current market is providing some excellent opportunities for sellers. Want to become a high flyer? Cambridge Aero Club, based at Cambridge International Airport, will teach you how - turn to page 16 for details. If you’re looking to become a different sort of high flyer, we’re recruiting! Due to the increased volume dealt with by our Cambridge sales office, we are looking for Sales Negotiators to join the TG team see page 18 for more information. Alex


Residential Sales Ian Chapman, Senior Valuer Histon Office I have recently joined TuckerGardner, bringing over 20 years’ experience of the Cambridge property market to an already impressive team. I live in Over with my family and in my spare time I’m a Trustee of Over Community Centre, a keen golfer and accomplished skier.

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 Clare Adams, Property Manager Great Shelford Office I’ve worked in the Shelford office as a Property Manager since 2007. I moved to Cambridge 8 years ago and my job has provided the perfect way to get to know my way around the area. I live on the south side of the city and love how much there is to do from boxing classes to being a member of a brand new Womens Institute group.

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. In each office you will find experienced, friendly individuals who will be happy to help. Contact the teams on: CAMBRIDGE:
