Our Team

Richard Stafford MRICS, RICS Registered Valuer

Richard has been living in this part of Kent since 1979 and working in the Ashford property market since 1985. Having studied at Southampton he joined Geering & Colyer in the Ashford office, transferring to Colyer Commercial in 1991 following a Management Buy Out, leaving in 2007 to join Taylor Riley.
Over the years Richard has dealt with all aspects of the commercial property market; initially doing numerous bank valuations throughout the county before transferring to a more active agency role in recent years, winning several EGi awards for being the most active agent in Kent.
Richard also runs the bulk of the property management portfolio in the company, providing numerous clients with a hands-on, proactive management service; whilst he does some professional work in terms of rent review and lease renewals, the bulk of this is related to the management portfolio. He is fairly active on the planning front, frequently dealing with finding alternative uses for redundant agricultural premises and general
change of use applications.
Richard has taken an active role in professional life in Ashford, having been a former Chairman of Ashford Chamber of Commerce (1998-2000) and still remaining active on at least one of their committees since.
When not working Richard enjoys life in his home village, trying to keep a 1972 Land Rover on the road to repeat trips to the deserts of Iceland and Morocco. Closer to home he tries to find time to fish, shoot and enjoy family life.
