Julian Rich ASSOCIATE NORTH EAST

Having lived in North Lincolnshire and now residing in Harrogate, Julian is a former Lincoln Cathedral chorister and former scholar of St Peters School, York. With University qualifications in both Construction and Rural Estate Management, he has spent all of his working life in the property industry.

Julian joined Garrington after working for 14 years in property development and investment where he was involved in numerous property transactions and developed over 100 homes in North Yorkshire resulting in his deep understanding of the local market.

Julian has quite a record within this development field having either renovated, built, converted, or refurbished more than £20m of property and successfully obtained planning permission for more than 150 homes. These ranged from one-off houses to Listed buildings including The Old Palace at Ripon, new build houses such as Littlecroft at Markington and 16-18 Regent Parade in Harrogate, barn conversions such as Manor Farm at Tollerton and the refurbishment of several Duchy Houses in central Harrogate

Julian now focuses on the prime market where his background and extensive knowledge enables him to give his clients the best advice for sourcing and acquiring property across the region.

Utilising his past experience in property development, Julian not only understands the local market from a buyer’s perspective but also has a great understanding of the negotiation process enabling him to secure the best deal for his clients.

When he is not sourcing properties for clients, Julian is a keen hockey player for Harrogate, enjoys sailing and boating and has a passion for walking his Cocker Spaniel, Barnaby in and around the Yorkshire Dales.

Amy Marshall Client Search Manager

Growing up in Somerset, Amy has always shown a keen interest in all things bricks and mortar. Curiosity resulted in a very hands-on approach to her parents’ property investment and development business throughout her school years. A career in property was a sure-fire for Amy: Starting with working for a commercial construction company in Bristol before taking some time outside of the UK to live and work in Spain. On returning to England, Amy moved to London to begin a career in the residential property market. Her initial role was as a lettings negotiator for a successful South West London estate agent. In time she migrated into residential sales, further broadening her knowledge of the property industry and London.

Amy now supports Nicholas with the day to day operations of the London business.
