Richard Harding

Richard has over 10 years of experience in selling houses and advising clients about their real estate assets. He has worked in and around Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Wiltshire and North Hampshire, initially with a small independent firm then latterly as a partner within a leading national firm. During this time he has sold some of the best houses in the area. Richard has also gained a post graduate qualification with The College of Estate Management, which underpins and broadens his knowledge of all aspects of real estate, in particular development, planning and valuation. Richard lives in Streatley with his wife Laura and two daughters Jemima and Beatrice.


James Theunissen

After his education at Douai Abbey, James spent five years as a cricketer in the UK and the southern hemisphere. Playing sport at a high level has given James a drive to succeed, as well as an understanding of how to be a real team player. For the last 12 years James has worked at two leading national estate agencies. Specialising in developments and seeing the potential in houses, James has had much success over the years helping his clients maximise the value of their homes. Well trusted, he is often the first port of call for a number of developers. James lives in Bucklebury village with his wife Sarah and two daughters Amelia and Charlotte.


Louisa Walker

Spanning two continents, from the bustle of Central London’s streets to the rolling plains of
South Africa, Louisa has over 23 years of experience in the property market.

She started out back in 1996, working in Residential Sales in the Putney, London SW15 area. From there, she progressed to Belgravia, London SW1, where she managed her office,
covering exclusive properties from Sloane Square to Soho.

A move to South Africa saw her develop her skills and experiences from life on a Kalahari game reserve, to working in Residential Sales and Corporate Rentals in the Northern Suburbs of Johannesburg and beyond to the farms across the Cradle of Humankind, a World Heritage Site.

A graduate in Modern Languages having lived and studied abroad, including at the Sorbonne in Paris, as well as work experiences across Europe, Louisa can comfortably converse in French, Spanish and Afrikaans.

Now back in the UK with her family, she brings with her a wealth of knowledge and a passion for people and their specific property  requirements. She has a particular love for the Cotswolds, where she now lives with her husband Peter and their son Tommy near Chipping Campden.
