About Recoco

After running and selling a chain of regional estate agencies, Nigel Bishop (pictured top left) founded Recoco (an abbreviation of Relocation Coast & Country) in 1999.

Recognising the difficulties inherent in making large property purchases in coastal and country locations, Recoco’s aim is to provide a highly personal property finding and buying service which guides buyers throughout the whole property buying process with local property experts who work solely on your behalf.

What Is A Property Search Agent?

Estate agents work for the vendor. Buying agents work for the buyer, guiding the process from identifying the right location and property to handling sensitive negotiations. It’s about working with someone who will look after your best property interests.

Since then, Nigel has helped dozens of clients buy millions of pounds worth of property across the South West. In his own words he is besotted with property and relishes the challenge of making the right match between each client and their ideal property.

Recoco’s aim is to provide a highly personal property finding and buying service which guides buyers throughout the whole property buying process with local property experts who work solely on your behalf.


Nigel has been featured in the Saturday property section of The Daily Telegraph, Traditional Homes & Interiors Magazine, Exeter Living, Devon Life (Pure Education Magazine) and Heritage magazine.

Our Team

Recoco has since extended to cover new locations with a small hand picked team of exceptional property professionals – each with impressive backgrounds and experience in property buying at the higher end of the market.

Recoco is bringing its unique and personal buying service to some of the most beautiful places to live in Britain.

Property Search Agents - The Benefits

Fewer Wasted Journeys

Many clients contact us when their own searches have proven fruitless or expensive.

In Cornwall, particularly, distance is a major consideration in the property finding process.

Time & Money

Property searching can take a great deal of time, energy and money if you don’t already live in Cornwall, or the South West and know the local area.

A property search agent can help you identify the right property and location quickly, and help you make what perhaps is amongst the largest financial decisions you’ll ever make.

Local Buying Experts

Buying in an unfamiliar location can be a minefield. With local experts on your side, you’ll be armed with inside knowledge to make the best purchase choices for you and your family.

The Best Property Always Goes Fast

It’s a misconception that a generally slower property market means it’s easier to buy the right property. In fact, the best property sells fast in almost any market, and holds its value better too. We can help you make those distinctions and conduct negotations on your behalf to achieve the right price.

As buying agents, we expect to find you the very finest property matching your requirements and budget.

Experienced, Objective Negotiators

When you find a home you want to purchase, the negotiation stage is key.

An impartial, detached and experienced negotiator can make a significant difference to final purchase price you pay.

Off Market Property

In the current climate, where some sellers are reluctant to put their property on the Cornwall property market, it’s invaluable to use someone who has the right contacts and can put you in touch with properties that are not yet advertised for sale.

This is particularly true at the much higher end of the market.
