This long-established and much respected firm of John Earle was founded in 1935 by John Reginald Earle who, until that time, had been the Stock Auctioneer at the Henley-in-Arden Stock and Produce Market.
In the 1950’s and 60’s his two sons, Tony and David, joined the practice, both of whom became Fellows of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. In 1980 the team was strengthened by the arrival of Peter Cornford, who is also a Fellow of the Institution of Chartered Surveyors and The National Estate Agents Association, and in 2000 he took over the reigns of the firm. Richard Abbey, also a Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and a Fellow of the Central Association of Agricultural Valuers, joined the practice as an Associate in 1995 and heads the Agricultural and Auctioneering Department. Tony Earle retired in 2000 and, sadly, passed away in the late summer of 2002. The business has retained its traditional, professional approach, considered to be very necessary in the volatile property environment of the early twenty-first century. With effect from 1st April 2007 Peter Cornford invited Richard Abbey to join him in partnership and now John Earle trades as a LLP – Registration No: OC326726.
