About Me

With a combined 40 years of estate agency experience between both London and here in South East Northumberland, Laura and I have worked in a competitive environment during the highs and lows of the housing market since the late 90s.

I started my career in London with a leading independent firm, swiftly progressing to senior management level across both independent and corporate firms at regional and national level. I’ve been incredibly fortunate over the years to have worked with some award-winning agents who’ve gone on to achieve great things (Laura included) Most recently, I’ve been heavily involved in the mentoring, coaching and training of self-employed business owners, whom themselves have opted to grow a relationship led business rather than transactional.

Laura started here career here in 1999 at a small independent firm in Newcastle before moving onto an agency in Cramlington. It was following that role when she moved back into Bedlington in 2002, managing and valuing in a few of the local firms before she decided to have a sabbatical. That year out turned into a decade and after a stint in the Caribbean she moved to London where we met. Here she worked for one of the largest as a live-in nanny, she returned to estate agency, working for the largest independent in London (where we met). Laura was recognized both as the top negotiator and valuer across the business during her 4 years there. She then went on to become a self-employed agent for a national online/hybrid business, taking responsibility for a major South London territory. It took her no time to amass a substantial following of loyal clients and build a business based on referral & recommendation.

What people say about Alistair Harper

We’ve just completed our sale and purchase through Ali and Laura and we couldn’t recommend them enough.

THE EASIEST AND MOST PLEASANT EXPERIENCE SELLING A PROPERTY – CAROLINE (BEDLINGTON)

EXP who are they ? Well we almost fell foul of going through the same old rigmarole of which one of the local agents do we choose to sell our house and then spend all our energy chasing after them day after day. Then, we met Alistair through a chance viewing on a property we were interested in buying. The rest is history. He has raised the bar s…

Well where do I start! From the set up of the personal whatsapp group before Alistair even left our house, I knew he was going to be different… a truly modern and personal twist on your standard estate agent.

… A TRULY MODERN AND PERSONAL TWIST ON YOUR STANDARD ESTATE AGENT – JOANNE

I thought I needed a good estate agent to sell my house quickly(which they did, twice!). Little did I know what I really needed a good estate agent for was when things go wrong!

“IF I EVER SELL AGAIN YOU ARE DEFINITELY MY 1ST AND ONLY CHOICE” – JANICE

I recently purchased a house through Alistair and Laura. Although most of the conversations I needed to have as the buyer were with my solicitor I regularly heard from Alistair and Laura, offering advice, asking if they could help with anything and just generally checking in. I really appreciated this, it was daunting buying an older house by my…

Alistair operates with integrity and I have received a premium quality service throughout the whole process. I haven’t encountered another estate agent that takes the same time and care.

BREATH OF FRESH AIR

Laura was absolutely first class from valuation through to getting an offer accepted.

She always provided excellent advice and support and answered any queries immediately – even on a Sunday! Also, once we pu…

I am writing to put on record my positive feedback regarding Laura Watson your local property expert for the Bromley Area.

LAURA WATSON ESTATE AGENTS – JOHN NICHOLAS-BRIGGS

Laura Watson was my agent for the second time in little over a year. I have been an executor of 2 estates and have had a house to sell on each occasion.

LAURA WATSON – NICHOLAS PRITCHARD

I have had a really good experience with Laura Watson. She has always answered the phone unless she on a viewing. She always called me back.

I would like to thank them both very much for…

HOUSE SALE – SALLY HARRISON-BAKER

We were sceptical of using an online agent as I have only ever used traditional Estate Agents. We had four valuations, which were all around the same price. Estate Agents have a certain swagger but we cannot rate our agent Laura Watson highly enough, she was professional, friendly and went way beyond our expectations. She seems to work 24 hours …

BEST SERVICE EVER..THANK YOU LAURA WATSON. – CHRIS WILCOCKS

ALISTAIR HARPER – SARAH HURN

We have just sold our flat through Purplebricks and should be moving into our new home soon. Our agent Laura Watson has been absolutely amazing! At first it all looked a bit daunting doing this ourselves but Laura was always there to help and give advice when needed. We can’t thank her enough for everything she has done for us.

Ali Harper helped to manage expectations as well as pursue a fair pricing of our property, one which I’m very happy with. He represented our position clearly to the buyers as well as advising on what he felt were the realistic prospects in the current slightly confused and uncertain market. I was selling amid the acrimony of a marital separati…

HE GETS MY VOTE – GRAEME MARTIN

Laura Watson was a fantastic consultant, she helped guide us from start to finish. It was a very stress-free transaction and we had constant updates and communication from Laura. We would highly recommend using purple bricks and if you can use Laura I would definitely recommend! Post-sale support was also a great help too.

A friend made a recommendation after selling and now I also recommend the same after selling. Alistair Harper was my local expert, he really looked after me and had my back every step of the way.
