    Malcolm Danford - Great Dunmow

    5 Market Place Great Dunmow, Essex CM6 1AX

    When Malcolm and his wife Joan founded what is now the longest established independent Estate Agency in Great Dunmow in 1976 it was from a background of 12 years previous experience in local Estate Agency with membership of the National Association of Estate Agents since its inception, and they were keen to concentrate on sales of all types of residential property, across the whole price spectrum, in Great Dunmow and the surrounding villages, the areas from which they originate and have always lived. Over the years many rural country cottages and village homes have been successfully sold, as well as some prestigious developments of new homes, including the excellent Woodlands Park, under construction by Wickford Developments, on the Western edge of town with the A120 bypass affording swift access to the M11 Motorway and Stansted Airport and where the Sales Complex and furnished Show Homes attract a strong flow of visitor enquiry. A high level of personal service and extensive local knowledge combined with attention to detail continue to be the watchwords of the Partnership which has gone from strength to strength over the years, underwriting the Principal’s policy of retaining their independent status.
