Richard Addington, MRICS
Richard began his estate agency career in Devon in 1989 when he joined the Jackson-Stops Exeter office. He had earlier trained at the Royal Agricultural College and has a background in rural life.

For the last 30 years, Richard has been involved with the sale of some of Devon’s most high profile and high quality rural and waterside properties. Amongst his portfolio of successful sales are an island, a palace, farms and landed estates, Listed country houses, old rectories, thatched cottages and holiday cottage complexes.

“Choosing Richard Addington and Jackson-Stops Exeter to sell our home was the best decision we made. Their insight and advice were invaluable, they thoroughly understood our requirements and we are immensely grateful to them all for making a potentially stressful exercise as simple and pleasurable as possible.”

Richard commented: “My experience ensures that our clients receive an outstanding service backed by sound and professional advice from beginning end. My practical knowledge firstly gives me an excellent understanding of the prime West Country property market and the influences on it and secondly equips me to anticipate any difficulties that might arise during the course of a sale to ensure a successful conclusion”.

Michael Clark, MRICS
An Exmoor boy, Michael has over 30 years’ experience in the property market, with 23 years specialising in the sale of country property around Devon.

Michael attended the Royal Agricultural College, Cirencester, where he completed his professional qualifications whilst working in land agency in Devon, near his home on the edge of Exmoor. He began his career in rural in 1987 with Savills’ residential estate agency in Banbury, Oxfordshire. He joined Jackson-Stops at the Chipping Campden office in 1993. In 1995 he jumped at the opportunity to return to Devon, moving down to the Exeter office.

“The whole team is so lovely. Emma and Mike also came to see our property in order to understand our position and requirements and to allow the team to vet potential purchasers for us. As a result, the viewing exercise turned out to be a pleasant experience every time and, in fact, they accurately predicted which viewers would make an offer!

Michael commented: “Having been involved in rural residential estate agency for over 30 years, my experience is put to good use for clients wishing to move to Devon or within Devon. There’s no substitute for ‘on the ground’ knowledge and they benefit from my thorough understanding of the Devon property market and its market conditions.

“I have dealt with everyone imaginable scenario when it comes to buying and selling Devon property so feel very well placed to steer my clients through the process of buying or selling a property.”
