About George and Emma, Property Finders in North Oxfordshire, North Cotswolds and Warwickshire

George and Emma live just outside Shipston-on-Stour, South Warwickshire, in the heart of the country they are covering for Stacks Property Search. George is a countryman, having been brought up in the wilds of Northumberland, and Emma grew up near Stratford-upon-Avon. When the opportunity arose to take on the renovation of her grandmother’s house in 2006 they jumped at the chance to move, and have been happily settled there ever since.

Having moved some 12 times or the past 30 years they have heaps of experience. They have renovated, built from scratch (for themselves and as a small-time developer), and have taken on complete makeover projects.  George comments “I am well-acquainted with the challenges of moving whether it is 5 miles or 5,000.  I can bring a great deal of empathy as well as expertise and experience to this property purchase role.”

He continues “This is a fantastic area of the country; it is wonderfully accessible with great road networks, easy access to international airports and train services whether to London Marylebone or Paddington, Birmingham and the north, or to the south and south west.”

George has been with Stacks Property Search since 2011 and Emma joined him in 2019 having previously worked as a residential lettings manager locally for the past decade.
