It’s a case of 400 up for Richard Oldaker and James Wiggins, after the Martin & Co Aldershot owners added a further 159 managed properties to their burgeoning portfolio.
The experienced duo are close to marking a decade in charge of the Aldershot branch, having cold started the business in 2009.
For Richard, the acquisition of Chilli Residential in 2018 marked a significant personal milestone, having started his property career 20 years earlier at the age of just 17 and purchased his first property before he was 20.
“We were approached by one of the directors of Chilli,” says Richard, “as James and I used to work with him before we started Martin & Co Aldershot. “They were in talks with other companies about a purchase but our reputation and high level of service stood out. They knew we would retain their clients and keep them happy.”
