26 years ago yesterday we opened the doors of our first office

12 Nov 2014

It’s been a couple of big days for Northfields.  Today is our CEO Richard Palfreeman’s birthday and yesterday was the 26th anniversary of the day he first opened the doors of Northfields. 


It seems rather apt that 26 years later, we’ve just opened the doors of our 6th West London office, in Acton. 

When Richard was telling us about that first day, we on the team were struck by just how young Richard would have been on that first day at Northfields and how determined he had to be to make such a success of this business.  With just one office, two people, and lots of big ideas, we’ve grown to become the leading estate agent in West London.

And that is mightily impressive, if we do say so ourselves.

We now have 6 offices with the addition of our newest office at 125 High Street, Acton covering Pitshanger, Northfields, Ealing Broadway, Shepherd’s Bush, Paddington and now Acton.  We have 58 members of staff and a bulging trophy cabinet with 32 awards.

But possibly what is even more impressive is just how many people we’ve been able to help find new homes or the number of landlords and sellers we’ve helped with one of their biggest investments – their property. 


Not only that, but with Richard’s leadership as one of the trustees on the board at The Log Cabin we’ve been able to raise money for local charities by donating a percentage of our fees and holding various fundraisers that really make a difference in our community. 

Here’s to the next 26 years of helping local people get the most from their homes, investments and community.
