Staff Profiles

Mark Long

Mark Long

Owner and Director

In 2018 I celebrate 35 years as an Estate Agent, something that I am extremely proud of.

I am passionate about what I do and this energy is transmitted to my colleagues to ensure they provide the very best service to all our past and future clients. My mission statements are:
‘Every client should think that we are only dealing with them’
‘Our people are our most important asset and who make the difference to our business and our performance’
‘The best agents are those who never lose sight of being people focussed and keep the human contact. Despite how much easier technology has made our jobs you still cannot beat a phone call to inspire some action’

Sean Herdman-Low

Local Director Banbury Office

Sean has considerable estate agency experience having worked in both central London and Oxfordshire.

He believes that excellent customer service and listening are the cornerstones of good agency, and thrives to go the extra mile for clients. He enjoys nothing more than seeing a sale through from offer to completion, and exceeding expectations from both vendors and buyers.

Outside of work, Sean enjoys dining out, fitness and travelling.

Chris Rowntree

Chris Rowntree

Nick Churton MNAEA CIPS

Nick Churton MNAEA CIPS

Mayfair Office

After several years of provincial agency experience Nick Churton made the move to work in central London for Chestertons. After working for several years at Chestertons Nick became a partner of John H. James & Company, a thirty-six-office firm in central Hertfordshire. This was a challenging and rewarding position but three years later a most intriguing opportunity presented itself. Nick was chosen from hundreds of estate agent and publishing professionals to head Country Life magazine’s property advertising team. Working at Country Life – surely one of the UK’s great institutions - was a great experience, but by the mid-nineties it was time to embark on his most exciting and personally rewarding career move.
In 1995 Nick Churton founded Mayfair Office to provide national and international property marketing expertise to some of the finest local and regional independent estate agents in the UK. This allows clients to use the very best expertise to market their property in London.
