Nick Wooldridge joined Stacks in 2004. Since then he has secured a variety of different homes, as well as development land, for clients in locations across the Thames Valley. Nick’s background in property began when he and his wife, Sarah, started building a modest property investment portfolio and renovating houses.  Then came the opportunity with Stacks for Nick to combine his inter-personal skills with his property expertise and business background, and put all this experience to the benefit of clients and help them find and secure the best homes for their requirements.

Prior to this, Nick spent eight years in corporate life working predominantly with international businesses in Europe and USA.  Before this Nick spent nearly 15 years in the British Army, as an infantry office and helicopter pilot. Nick grew up in London, and he and his family have lived and worked in various parts of UK, as well as abroad.  Nick has been settled in Maidenhead since 1985, and so has a thorough personal knowledge of the Thames Valley area. Sarah runs her own interior design business, which offers additional help to clients moving into their new home.


Rachel Johnston

The Buckinghamshire and East Oxfordshire Regional Director, Rachel Johnston, has been with Stacks for more than seven years, after a lifetime of problem-solving in a variety of roles. Rachel was actually a Stacks client first, as she was too busy to devote the necessary time to her own househunt and enrolled Stacks to help move her family back to her childhood region. She appreciated the service so much, she “bought the company” (= area’s franchise!) and has since lived and worked in the region, providing honest guidance and 360° support for her clients.

“This Chiltern line corridor has such a variety of property that there is something for everyone, whether you are moving out from London for the family, downsizing to a thriving market town once the kids have left, or seeking a peaceful country retreat to live and work from, Buckinghamshire and East Oxfordshire has the environment for you” says Rachel.

“We pride ourselves on the excellent customer service that we provide.  When we are working for you, we will ensure that we get you the best deal that we can, negotiating with estate agents and vendors and ultimately reducing your stress levels!  Let us do the hard work for you, whilst you focus on living your life.

How We Do It

“You showed fantastic attention to detail, anticipated all eventualities, and provided timely and practical help and guidance every step of the way.  Above all, you supported me in making my own considered decisions, and I am so grateful to you for all your help in getting me to where I am now!”

“We firmly believe that without Rachel and her skilled negotiation we would not have secured the property.”

“We felt they genuinely wanted to help.”

“Stacks’ performance on this assignment has been absolutely outstanding and more than met my expectations. Her understanding of the brief and the ‘after-find’ service set a standard of professionalism that I have not met before.”

“It is not often that one is pleased to part with money but I can truthfully say that I am on this occasion. You have earned every penny of this cheque and what is more, you have done it with great courtesy and good humour. It has been very pleasant working with you. You really did take most of the stress out of our house hunting.”

“Encouraging me to think creatively about what could work for me.”

“Finding a plot not yet on the market and persuading the developer to enter into an exclusive contract with me to build to my specification.

“I was impressed by the efficient, kind and courteous service provided by Stacks”

“Stacks were a tremendous help and we would never have found our home without them. She is a lovely person with a great sense of humour which was essential during some of our tricky negotiations

“You gave a much-valued ‘younger’ perspective on our situation, which was a real asset”

“We found the service extremely helpful and professional at all times”

“I have been delighted with the service I have received from Stacks and will not hesitate to recommend Stacks in the future.”
