Nigel grew up in the Cotswolds, on a family farm, working for his father, who was a well-known land agent. Nigel moved to Devon in 1976, acquiring a partnership in estate agency Rickeard Green and Michelmore, eventually owning the business and developing it into seven offices in Devon and Cornwall. On selling the business in 1999 Nigel set up Recoco, fulfilling a long held passion for acting for individuals looking for special properties.

Although his intention was initially to work alone, Nigel’s regular liaison with respected and talented key contacts within the property world led him to seize the opportunity to develop the business by bringing these people on board as colleagues to further better the service to his clients.

Father to a daughter and a son, Nigel enjoys writing and authors a number of columns on Property Search for leading publications. He is regarded as both a regional and national property expert.

Nigel still gets a real buzz after 45 years in the business when he finds the right property for clients and hears them say: “I love it!” Knowing he has been instrumental in getting them there makes the job worthwhile.
