Greetings to you all from the tail end of 2017!  We hope that you had an excellent Christmas and, like us here at Move Forward, are enjoying these few days before the world really wakes up again! 

2017 was another good year for us and we had some very interesting projects to work on and have sourced some super houses for quite a few happy clients. 

What we particularly like about the work we do – is that no two days are the same – on a Monday we could be vetting houses in order to present clients with a shortlist to view – our instructions encompass sourcing a wide range of property. from large country estates to terraced cottages and retirement bungalows and everything in between! 

Tuesday could see us meeting on site with clients, architects and builders to discuss an extension or the remodelling of an existing house. Wednesday we could be showing a client the selection of houses we have sourced for them and helping and advising them with regards to options and potential. 

Thursday, we possibly are meeting with our landscapers and gardeners to get updated on progress of a project we are working with them, This could involve the installation of an outside kitchen with entertaining space, a terrace or pool or most recently, the planning of a Knot Garden.

On a Friday, you will generally find us dropping in on all our contractors who are currently carrying out work for us and our clients – we will have with us an insulated box of freshly made Bacon Butties (with a choice of sauces!) and time for a general catch up on how their week has gone. 

Clients are updated with a written report on a weekly basis – even if we have met with them during that week.  This provides them with a record of progress and is an opportunity for us to focus their minds on any decisions we need them to make! 

We are looking forward now to 2018 – when we already have a number of projects in the pipeline.

One being a large extension and reconfiguration of the house of a client in Henley on Thames – meetings with Architects, Bespoke Kitchen Makers, Builders, Landscapers etc – kick off in mid-January.  We also have the gradual refurbishment of a super house which is set high on the Chiltern Escarpment – with extensive gorgeous grounds – but still retaining the feel of  a family home.   

We have also received the heads up on a number of properties of various sizes, prices and locations, due to come to the market in 2018 – as always we hear about these prior to them hitting the open market – so if you are looking to move to our area –  from the Chilterns to the Cotswolds (and all the lovely places in between!) in 2018 – do get in touch as soon as poss – as often we are told about houses that will not be available until much later in the year – so it is never to soon to register your interest.

Why not get in touch with us for an informal – no commitment – chat and find out what we could do to perhaps help you realise your property dream in 2018?  We have a well earned reputation for being friendly and knowledgeable and ‘telling it how it is’ – so you know that when you deal with us, you will always get an honest, independent and informed view to your property questions and conundrums.

Check out our website and then email Jo Furness on

We can then fix a mutually convenient time for an informal meeting with Jo and we are confident that Move forward will be able to help you

Move Forward into 2018……and beyond………..! 

Turn your can’t into cans and your dreams into plans!
