Introducing our team…


Simon Ware, MNAEA MARLA, Director

Simon has worked in the business for over 25 years and has a vast knowledge of the Taunton property market. He is a member of both the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA) and the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA). He loves being an independent agent which gives him the freedom to provide the best service possible and to adjust quickly to ever changing market conditions. Another passion of his is raising professional standards within the industry, which is still, believe it or not, unregulated. Estate agents handle probably your biggest asset, so why wouldn't you place it in the hands of an agent that is not only qualified, but a member of a redress scheme. Simon is both. He is a father to two boys and a girl which keeps him busy outside of work and like most men, enjoys watching football and motor racing.

Nicola Ware, FCCA MARLA, Director

I joined the firm in 2009 when Simon and I took over. I previously worked as an accountant in Bristol and Taunton and when the opportunity arose to join the company, I took it with both hands. I pride myself on my attention to detail and relish the opportunity to take the company from strength to strength. I am a member of ARLA (MARLA) and I am a fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (FCCA). I have a busy social life and enjoy spending time with my three children and our dog.
