We are delighted to celebrate the opening of our 29th branch in Chepstow, specialising in both Peter Alan and pa black.

Due to the demand and breadth of quality homes in the Monmouthshire area we felt we needed to expand.  Chepstow is an area we do cover through our Monmouth branch, but until now we didn’t have a solid focus in.

Pete Burrows has been chosen to head up the Chepstow branch as Branch Manager.  Pete is currently Branch Manager of our Cwmbran office, and is excited for the challenge ahead. “I’m extremely excited. Taking a branch from a cold start, and the challenge of growing our presence in the area is something I can’t wait to get started on,” enthuses Pete.

“The branch will serve the whole community, from first time buyers to those clients with properties suited to our pa black brand.  It is a great time in Chepstow, there has been an increase of people from Bristol looking to move to the area due to the property boom there, the possible changes to the rail system, as well as it being incredibly beautiful and boasting a fantastic community full of history.

Before working at Peter Alan I was a consultant for Barclays Wealth, and so had over ten years’ experience of carrying out property valuations.  Working in estate agency had always been of interest me, and when my son was born it seemed the perfect time to take the leap.  My job at Barclays required me to travel all over the country, which is not great when you have a young family.

I managed to secure interviews for a number of estate agents, including Peter Alan; their history and recognisable brand made it my preferred choice, and thankfully they offered me a role as a Negotiator in Newport. I’ve worked hard during my time with Peter Alan to reach the position of Branch Manager, and I’m now really looking forward to making the move to Chepstow.”

Pete is an avid fundraiser and runner, which, he told us, is another attraction of working in Chepstow.  One of the main charities he supports is St. David’s Hospice Care, due to the assistance it has provided his friends and family over the years.  At the moment he is training for the St. David’s Newport Half, and the Pontypool Half Marathon, as well as The Severn Bridge Marathon.  He will also be looking to support our charity of the year 2 Wish Upon A Star over the coming months.

Please call in and visit Pete and the rest of the team at 1a Bank Street, they will be able to assist and support you with all your property needs and requirements or contact them online
