About Us


Giles Newby

I am  Giles Newby (FNAEA). I have over 34 years experience in residential estate agency  in the home counties  , specialising in the sale and letting of all types of homes from flats to country houses. As a director of my  own estate agency I am  a multiple National Award winning estate agent ( including being voted one of  the ” Top 10 Estate Agencies in The Country” ,and “Best Estate Agent in The South East”) ,  and have  been selling and renting homes continuously since 1979, and offering house doctoring and home investment advice, across the UK  throughout my career.

In addition to winning awards  , The National Association Of Property Professionals have also awarded me  a Fellowship of The National Association ( FNAEA) , in recognition of my  professionalism in day to day dealings with corporate and private clients, local and national house builders, building societies, solicitors, surveyors ,valuers, architects and relocation agents.

Originally only operating in the affluent London commuter areas of the Home Counties, my expertise was often sought by high profile clients, celebrities and TV production companies. However I  now provide a UK  nationwide  House Doctor Makeover and Investment Advice service  accessible to all property owners, with any type or style of property .

I CAN GET YOUR HOUSE SOLD OR RENTED QUICKER. With a proven track record of budget makeovers, home presentation and homestaging as well as advising on sizeable investment projects I have widespread knowledge of exactly what buyers and tenants will be looking for from your property , and therefore know what will get your home sold or rented quicker and what  adds sale and rental value. With a good eye for interior (and garden) design, layout and presentation, I  will always provide frank, honest and “to the point” advice , without being as  rude as they are on TV !!

In 2008 , I was resident House Doctor in the BBC TV programme “BBC HOMES LIVE” co presenting a number of programmes and  property related articles with presenters Matt Allwright and Beverley Turner

NOT JUST TRADITIONAL HOUSEDOCTOR ADVICE …..As a practicing estate agent you will get the benefit of any relevant marketing advice within my  visit too….. for example ……Have you chosen the right agent, have you instructed too many agents, has the agent marketed thoroughly, have the written brochure and internet details highlighted the most saleable aspects of your home?

My  house doctoring and investment advice will ignore emotionally driven issues, and settle many a disagreement within the household too, and is given purely with added value, saleability and rentability in mind. Prepare for some innovative, interesting and often very surprising advice!

My portfolio of clients includes both those with limited budgets and those willing to spend sizeable sums. My advice is equally suitable to smaller homes as it is larger property, and I  ensure my  advice adds value to all.


I would like to think I am considered by most as  a very personable and approachable “people person” and that my professional and detailed advice is given in a very friendly, relaxed, concise and informal manner, ensuring my  clients thoroughly enjoy this interesting exercise, whilst both making them, and saving them money.
