East of Exe estate agents move to their own new home


A leading Exeter estate agent has made a move of its own into new Exeter city centre premises to house its growing team.

Previously located in Southernhay West, the company – which specialises in property sales and lettings in Exeter, East Devon and Teignbridge – have become the first tenants at the prestigious number 1 Barnfield Crescent address.

East of Exe was founded in 2010 by Ian Garcia and Chris Taylor, with its first office in Topsham. The firm has enjoyed steady growth over the past eight years, opening its city centre branch in 2013 and its sister agency, West of Exe, in Exminster in 2017.

In its new location, East of Exe will run a hot-desking workspace for both sales and lettings teams across the company. With a dedicated receptionist and newly-refurbished meeting rooms, the company’s new ‘des res’ will allow the team to offer a more flexible service for sales and lettings to customers in a prime, city centre location.

The bright and spacious offices will also provide private meeting space for customers to discuss their property needs with the agents.

Ian Garcia, Founder and Director of East of Exe, said: “The East of Exe family has grown over the past eight years and so has our offering to our customers. This is the perfect time for the Exeter office to move and to change the dynamic of how we operate as a company.

“We love being in the heart of Exeter, so keeping a central location was essential. We’re excited about moving; the new space oozes character with its Georgian façade, while inside the offices the space is spacious and welcoming.”

Ian added: “Having this hot-desking space will mean our team can work more flexibly to suit customers’ needs and we can offer an enhanced service to both new and existing customers.”

Offering unrivalled coverage for sales and lettings in Exeter and on both sides of the River Exe, East of Exe and West of Exe pride themselves on offering a highly personalised service and genuine insider knowledge of the local property scene.

Stuart Hoddinott, owner of Offices at Number1said: “We are really pleased to have East of Exe as our first tenants in this amazing new office space in the centre of Exeter. We already feel they are part of our family and look forward to growing with them in the future.”
