Adrian Thomas has practiced in Rickmansworth since 1984, having originally founded Trend and Thomas and being a director there for 25 years. Now he has now formed a partnership with Anthony Bennett, managing director of Grosvenor Estates of Croxley, a successful, extensive practice in New Road, which was also was established a 1984.
On hearing that Adrian had sold the property portfolio he handled from his Thomas Brown partnership in the interim, (based from premises on the corner of Church Street and Bury Lane across the road from his new office), Anthony thought it would be an excellent idea to meet with him to establish whether he could extend his interest into Rickmansworth and the surrounds, duly involving Adrian.
At this time Adrian was advising a long-term friend and investing Client in acquiring 27 Church Street, formerly the home of, restaurants, wine bars and originally housing Tames the stationers. Together they were planning the conversion of this exceptional Grade II listing building into two ‘cottage offices.' Adrian was in the process of negotiations with the, now, freeholder to open an estate agency to the ground floor of one of the units.
The result of this preamble was ‘Mr. Croxley meets Mr. Ricky’ with 60 years of practice between them in the Three Rivers District, no less!
This time round Adrian Thomas has his full name above the door, as opposed to just his surname, which ‘adorn’ no less than three other premises around the town, but now ‘@ Grosvenor’ heralding a formidable partnership encompassed by Tony’s agency.
Innovative to say the least, namely a specialized practice dealing with residential and commercial sales and lettings and Land development, backed up by Grosvenor Estate Agents as ‘Head Office.'
‘Adrian Thomas @ Grosvenor’ offers a unique personalised agency in which, you the Client is dealt with the personal attention of Adrian and his PA Carmen Cianciaruso, whom has worked with Adrian before over the 20 years of their acquaintance and shares his views on just how Clients should be served.

In addition to dealing with their old clients and acquaintances, which after 40 years of experience in the business you can imagine how many there are, they are eager to impress new customers at the lowest 'bespoke' fee structures that can be negotiated individually, to suit your pocket.
Having been a Fellow of the National Association of Estate Agents since the 1980s,' where he has not had a single complaint lodged against him in all this time, Adrian knows that he can fill a niche market, the like of which is not catered for by the conventional estate agents in the area.

Tony and Adrian's new office is very different too, having been restored under the listed building authority, boasting a wealth of exposed beams yet being highly specified to conventional standards and decorated to create a special atmosphere in this 16th Century premises.

This is how it used to be, before the boom of the 80's, when the 'Cowboys' rode into the business, leaving the profession with a dubious representation.
