Whitman & Co: Award-Winning Agent

Whitman & Co: Award-Winning Agent

Denise White

Planning to buy or sell? Whitman & Co are the local experts in the W4 property market

Over the last three years Rightmove has consistently ranked Whitman & Co as Chiswick’s best performing estate agent. The latest published figures reveal that in 2018 the Turnham Green Terrace team had agreed 106 sales compared to 31 by its closest local competitor.

In October those excellent results, together with other key factors such as customer service, marketing and property views, saw the agency awarded Gold status as the ‘Best Single Agent in West London’ in a guide compiled by the Property Academy, an organisation set up to improve standards in the property industry.

‘It was a lovely pat on the back for us and the way we work,’ says Senior Negotiator, Denise White. ‘It puts us in the top 0.5% of estate agents in the UK.’ Denise herself epitomises the Whitman’s ethos of focusing solely on the W4 market and employing staff who know the area like the back of their hand.

‘I moved to Chiswick from Wales in 1993 and the first thing I did was sign up with the Alfred Marks recruitment agency on the High Road. Through them I got a secretarial job at an estate agent and, after a while, I thought, I love dealing with people, I could do that job.

‘I became a negotiator at the Bushells office in Hammersmith and when my boss, Derek Fletcher, left to launch his own agency in Chiswick, I went with him.’

Denise moved to Whitman & Co last year. ‘I had been wanting to work part-time so I could spend more time with my daughter Emilly. Then, out of the blue, Chris (Chalmers, Sales Director) got in touch about a job share here. I didn’t hesitate – I was so pleased to join an independent agent with such a family atmosphere.

‘I’m passionate about what I do, I don’t believe in being pushy – you can’t convince someone to buy a property if they haven’t fallen in love with it – and I care about the people I deal with. That’s always been the Whitman way and it’s why buyers and sellers come back to us – we like to build a continuing relationship.’
