Why are you called Peter Joy?

The Agency is named after the founder, Peter Joy. A successful Estate Agent with a track record of excellence, Peter started Peter Joy in Stroud in 1997 after becoming disillusioned with corporate agency and its focus on revenue rather than the client. It was an immediate success and he expanded, joining forces with Philippa to open a second office in Nailsworth. Sadly, Peter died unexpectedly not long after this. The team here are proud to continue working in his name, to the same exacting, customer focused standards that Peter originally envisioned.

"Thanks for all you and your team’s hard work – it has been quite surreal that you found the perfect buyers for both houses in such a short time. You have of course spoilt me for any future sales, as this is now the standard that I will expect!"

Miss T - South Woodchester

"The service I received from the team at Peter Joy in Nailsworth was second to none. They marketed and handled the sale of my house with true professionalism and were always on the end of the phone if there was a question or a problem that needed dealing with. They also found me my new property...and have handled both ends of the business beautifully.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them with the highest regard"

Ms P - Horsley

"I can honestly say that selling through Peter Joy was a delight. Everyone I liaised with in the team were highly professional and competent. Your proactive approach was exactly what had been missing from our first agents."
