A big welcome to local property expert, Michelle Hendrie

I am delighted to announce that former estate agent, Michelle Hendrie, has joined my buying agency, Property Acquisitions, to help meet phenomenal demand from local country house buyers seeking village homes in and around the Midhurst, Petworth and Chichester area.

Living in East Dean, Michelle joins from Jackson-Stops Midhurst, where she has spent the last fifteen years selling prime country houses in and around the South Downs National Park. Combined with a passion for matching buyers to specific properties, Michelle brings a lot of off-market knowledge and expertise to Property Acquisitions and the residents of The Valley – especially at a time when many locals are struggling to find their next home nearby due to immense competition from other purchasers.

Aware of where the off-market houses are for sale long before the general public find out, Michelle is already very busy working with buyers keen to stamp their ground in West Sussex’ golden villages, with her clientele ranging from downsizers and upsizers to families and weekenders. In her spare time, Michelle can be found enjoying local walks, dining at the Star & Garter or The Partridge, gardening, enjoying plays at Chichester Festival Theatre and going to Goodwood horseracing.

It is a very exciting time for Michelle to be joining the business, and already she has proved invaluable in helping me cater to demand. I have always admired her passion and professional expertise for many years, and I am confident she will be a huge success at Property Acquisitions.

Michelle said: “Buyer demand continues to outweigh properties for sale tremendously across West Sussex, and purchasers have quickly realised that buying agents are the key to finding the good country houses that nobody else knows about, removing the competition for them hugely. I couldn’t be joining Jennie at a more exciting time and look forward to working with local homeowners in their quest for their next country home.”
