Sandoe's Chartered Surveyors - Westbury
Smallbrook House, Edward Street, Westbury, BA13 3BQ
Sandoes have been providing property services in Westbury for very many years and in 1968 Sandoe & Sandoe commenced trading in Maristow Street.
Sandoes is a family business, which has its roots in the West of England and a history in the property sector that spans 5 generations and over 160 years from when William David Sandoe moved from Cornwall to Watford in Hertfordshire to become the Borough Surveyor.
He later returned to the west in Malvern, Worcestershire having acquired a local auctioneering and estate agency business, before moving to Gloucester where he and his son, William, traded as Sandoe & Son, operating an estate agency and auctioneering business running from the city’s fruit and vegetable market for several decades.
William’s grandsons, Roy and Philip, along with guidance from Uncle George Sandoe, took over the business of Welch & Co. in Frome, Somerset changing the name to Sandoe & Sandoe a couple of years later and expanded to 5 offices before the business, along with many others at that time, was acquired by the corporates in the late 1980’s.Philip stayed on for a couple of years but yearned to become master of his own domain once more and recommenced trading on his own as Philip Sandoe Chartered Surveyors taking the then unwanted management business with him.
He was joined a few months later by his son, Julian, who had been working as a commercial surveyor in Birmingham and the West Midlands for some years, with Julian assuming control of the firm on Philip’s death a couple of years later. A move from the Town Hall to newly refurbished Grade II listed premises in Edward Street in 2000 (adjacent to Morrisons Supermarket) was cause for the trading name of the firm to be abbreviated simply to Sandoes Chartered Surveyors.
