Treleaven Developments Ltd are celebrating 10 years of highly successful trading in Truro since April 2004.
Initially trading as Goundrypearce, the company now trades as Goundrys Estate Agents and is owned by Husband and Wife team Andy and Karen Goundry, who met when the couple were both working for a local independent firm of agents (Tremaynes), based in River Street, Truro way back in 1986.
The Holding Company name is derived from Karens maiden name, and has a long Cornish history primarily in the farming sector. “Despite my unusual surname, when it came to choosing a name for the company Goundry appeared in a great number of existing company names as it is a much more common surname in the north east of England”, said Andy.
Having originally started in the Old Chapel Business centre in Greenbottom, Goundrys moved into their current Lemon Street premises in August 2005 and have recently refurbished the premises to bring them up to date.
Having acquired the long established Lee and Co agency in St Agnes in 2009 the sales side of the operation covers from Hayle and Carbis Bay in the west, to Falmouth and Helston in the South, Newquay to the north and St Austell to the east. Indeed we have successfully market property in each of these towns in recent months.
In 2007 the lettings side of the business was opened and has been further expanded following the acquisition of the long established and extremely reputable Orchard Cottages lettings business earlier this year. “This brings our managed portfolio of property to over 250 properties” says Karen” and is a part of the business that has grown year on year since 2007, and continues to do so”
Although we are celebrating 10 years of successful Independent Estate Agency as Goundrys, not only has Andy got 28 years experience in the market place, he is one of the most qualified agents trading locally. Having qualified with a Bsc Degree, Andy also has a certificate in residential estate agency, Domestic Energy Assessor and CMap mortgage advice qualifications attained over his varied career. He has been Chairman of the Cornwall branch of the National Association of Estate Agents Cornwall branch in the past, as well operating in the local community as the current chairman of Truro Running Club.
Karen Hall, who has been Sales Manager with Goundrys since 2005, having also previously worked with Andy, boasts 30 years experience in the local marketplace and with the 15 years boasted by Charlie Moon who manages the St Agnes sales office and the 38 years offered by Linda Spellman in the lettings office, Goundrys believe you will have to look long and hard to find a more experienced overall team in the County.
“At Goundrys we believe as a company we should support the community as much as possible. To this end we continue to sponsor the Truro Half marathon along with other running events in the county, St Day Football Club, St Agnes Victorian Fayre and St Agnes carnival and the village playgroup.”
To celebrate this landmark 10th anniversary Goundrys are offering £1000 off their standard sales commission for New Instructions received up to the end of May 2015.
