Andrew is arguably the most experienced estate agent in Pinner. He entered the profession in 1969 and qualified as a Surveyor four years later. Andrew is a Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors FRICS and is also a member of the Institute of Revenues, Rating and Valuation.IRRV(Hons) Forty five years on, Andrew still loves the buzz and the challenge of a vibrant estate agency office and helping people with their property matters, whether that is buying and selling homes or services for the commercial sector. He is very ‘hands on’ and handles many valuations and sales in Pinner personally. Andrew remains true to his conviction that a practice oriented towards service and professionalism is the only way forward. In January 2011, after 20 very successful years as Baker Pearce, he brought together all the disciplines of the property profession under one roof to offer a bespoke all-encompassing service to people in Pinner. He rebranded the business as Andrew Pearce Estate Agents & Chartered Surveyors for residential sales and lettings, together with an integral and thriving commercial property business spanning north-west London. Andrew’s industrious enthusiasm for the property market has never wavered. Promoted to manager at the age of 22, Andrew divided his time between work and rebuilding a derelict cottage in Harrow. In 1980 he married, moved to Pinner and was invited into partnership at Wrethams, the local family estate agents and surveyors with offices in Pinner, Rayners Lane and Harrow. Andrew negotiated the sale of this practice to The Prudential before forming Baker Pearce in 1990.
Joe has Pinner running through his veins. He went to Cannon Lane and Nower Hill schools and spent his childhood as a local scout, exploring the Pinner neighbourhood. He is immensely proud of the local history and Pinner in general, and loves showing it off to other people. For him, the best bit about being an estate agent is handing over the keys at the end of a transaction. I love seeing the joy on buyers’ faces and knowing that as soon as they walk out of our office they are going straight to their new home. I get to know my clients well and forge good relationships, so it’s very satisfying seeing it all come together from their first enquiry to helping them find their ideal home. Joe was introduced to buying and selling homes by his mother, herself an estate agent in Pinner, and decided to follow a similar path when he completed his education. He quickly discovered his gregarious nature was ideally suited to meeting and connecting with lots of different people. After five years learning his trade, he joined Andrew as senior sales negotiator for the Pinner office. In 2007 he was asked to open and run a new office, a challenge he relished. However, when the opportunity arose to return to the Pinner estate agent office some 18 months later, Joe leapt at the chance to return to his home base. I’m like a boomerang when it comes to Pinner, he jokes. Joe has always had an interest in IT and graphic design. He manages the agency’s systems and sets the standards for how property particulars are presented and marketed. He is a huge advocate of the Andrew Pearce brand values and fully supports the Customer Charter. When we say ‘nothing is too much trouble’ we mean it, says Joe. It’s the way we do business here.

With her professional background in law, Caroline continues to demonstrate her attention to detail when showing perspective buyers a property. Caroline says ‘ when I show a buyer or tenant a property I make sure I am fully aware of all of the properties details, for example when the property was last rewired and when was the heating changed etc’.
