Having moved from Leicestershire to this area some 30 years ago, she can speak with boundless knowledge of Herefordshire and its surrounding areas.

Treacle joined our team in January 2011 and comes with a classic pedigree but is not formally qualified. Working 4 days a week and occasional weekends, she greets customers, consults avidly at biscuit time and generally helps boost staff morale. Treacle accompanies Tom on valuations and viewings and is always pleased to meet new friends, both 2 and 4 legged. Hobbies include pheasants, regular walks and she is a keen swimmer. Likes wood burners, less keen on cats and bicycles.
Molly’s love of water, mud, hedges and anything furred or feathered means she cant help Richard on all valuations and viewings but she is always on hand at most appointments if needed. When not running aimlessly in search of “something” she likes to relax in the window seat of the office to keep an eye out for potential vendors and generous buyers! Everyone calling in to see us will be greeted with an exceptionally waggy tail and her favourite pheasant toy.
