“Simply the best experience we have ever had with any agent. Great knowledge of the market and area, not only that but they know how to get the job done. Well done Paul & his team in Watford.”

Watford Office

The Proffitt & Holt Watford estate agency office is now located at the top of The Parade on the High Street and is one of the town’s longest established firms serving the Watford area since 1939. The office offers residential sales, lettings and property management and is also the base for our associated financial services company, The Mortgage Advice Bureau.

The sales and lettings departments deal with property throughout Watford and the surrounding areas, including Cassiobury and Nascot Wood, Croxley Green, Garston, North and West Watford and Oxhey. There is a diverse choice of property in the area, such as purpose-built flats, modern developments of starter and family homes, Victorian cottages and larger family homes dating back to the 1930s.

Watford has a thriving town centre with the excellent Intu and Charter Place shopping centres, both offering well-known High Street stores and individual independent shops, as well as popular restaurants and coffee shops. The town also provides an excellent range of amenities and sporting facilities and is home to a Championship football club and Premier League rugby club, Saracens.

The town is ideally located for the commuter with Watford mainline station providing a fast and regular service to London Euston and the Metropolitan Line Underground station providing access to Baker Street and The City. There are also excellent links to the national motorway network with junction 5 of the M1 and junction 19 of the M25 approximately 1.5 miles from the town centre.

Paul is a career Estate Agent working in the industry for over 25 years.

Russell Cairns
Head of Property Management

Russell joined the industry in 1994 straight from school, initially working for an independent firm in Ruislip & Pinner. He focussed on lettings from his early days in estate agency, and have witnessed a huge increase in Buy-to Let investment over the years, with portfolios of property ballooning. He joined Proffitt & Holt in 2008 as Lettings Manager bringing many years of knowledge and experience with him. Having lived in Northwood for many years, and now living in Rickmansworth, Watford, Berkhamsted and the surrounding villages are very familiar territory. Outside of work, alongside encouraging his son on the football field and attending an abundance of children's parties he is invited to, he is a keen motor racing fan and likes the occasional game of golf where time allows.

 

John Armstrong

Originally at one of the largest corporate estate agents in the country, John went on to work for several local independent agents in Tring, Berkhamsted and Croxley Green before coming to Proffitt & Holt. In 2009 he moved across to the lettings side of the business to become manager at our Watford branch .John lives locally and enjoys cycling, going to the gym, drumming

  Irfan Raja
Senior Negotiator

Irfan graduated in Law in 2010 and after trying a number of different jobs developed a strong interest in property.  This lead him to take a position with a leading rural Hertfordshire estate agent, where he received an excellent grounding in the industry and whilst there, set a number of sales records for the company. However, after two years he wanted a more challenging environment with a bigger firm and a busier office, so moved to the Watford office of Proffitt & Holt in 2013. He has excellent communication skills and a very easy going and personable nature which helps smooth the sales process. Outside of the office, he enjoys keeping active by boxing and visiting the gym.  He is also passionate about travelling and hopes to see as much as possible of the world.
