At Northfields we are very involved with our community and in particular with our nominated charity The Log Cabin which provides a place for children with disabilities or different needs to play and socialise. We raise money by holding events, raffling off prizes and we constantly collect money for The Log Cabin via the donate button on the sidebar of our blog. It’s the season of goodwill so if you feel so inclined, please donate now.
Estate agency is not about property. Not really. It is about people. Finding people the right home to suit their life and their needs. Then to support them through the sometimes stressful (although hopefully exciting) process of moving. And you need great people to do that. At Northfields we know that talent and attitude matter. We like to find people that care enought to be the best they can be. And we've been recognised by the Times/Sunday Times Estate Agency of the Year awards for our Training and Development. Because people matter.
