We opened our office here in 2016 broadening our reach across the most desirable areas of Surrey. Our dedicated team are here to help find your perfect home or to find you the perfect tenant.

Rupert Briggs

Hi, my name is Rupert and I’m the owner and Director of The Personal Agent Ltd. Richard and I launched The Personal Agent in 2004 with a vision of it being a very different kind of agency. Having worked for local estate agents, we knew what the market was looking for – a personal service tailored to the needs of those who trust us with their properties, one that genuinely listens, adapts, and consistently delivers on its promises. I am passionate about ensuring that each and every landlord and vendor we work with only ever receives the very best in service, marketing and cutting-edge innovations to ensure that they achieve their property goals and we live up to their expectations.

Nina Griffiths

Hello, my name is Nina and I am the Company Administrator for our Epsom, Banstead and Stoneleigh offices. I work directly alongside the Sales Team to produce high quality brochures, and deal with all other aspects of administration. I previously worked in the Lettings industry, but have been working in Administration for 15 years. I have a passion for seeing things through and pride myself on my work. I also enjoy working across different areas as there are so many different types and styles of property. I look forward to assisting you and ensuring your property is presented in the best possible way to secure a buyer for your home.

Richard Digance

Hello, my name is Richard, and I am one of the founding directors of The Personal Agent. I have been valuing homes within the area since 2001 and during this time have been responsible for all new business development and market appraisals within our flagship Epsom branch. I proudly head the team in our thriving Epsom office and bring my wealth of experience to ensure we achieve the best results for our clients.

Richard Humphrey

Hello, my name is Richard Humphrey, and I am the Associate Director based in the Epsom office. Having been in the industry for around 30 years I have estate agency in my blood and couldn’t imagine doing anything else. For me it is all about doing the best for our clients and it is hugely rewarding when I see my team deliver the highest service and receive the praise they deserve. It also makes it easier for us to differentiate ourselves as much of our business comes from reviews and recommendations.

Gareth Osgood


Hello, my name is Gareth and I am the Senior Valuer in our ever- growing Epsom office.

My journey through the property industry began over two decades ago at a large corporate estate agency but as time has gone on, I’ve actively sought out an independent agency that knows what great customer service looks like which has brought me to where I am today.

I’ve been a local resident for over ten years and really enjoy being part of the thriving local community. Most importantly I’m one of those lucky people who loves my job and I truly believe this comes across when I meet clients to chat with them about all things property.

Chris Shaw

My Name is Chris, a 10-year veteran of the property market, and Sales Manager of the Epsom branch. I have a passion for property and believe that being an estate agent is far more than just negotiating the right deal. I know from a decade of working with landlords and vendors, tenants and buyers, that estate agency is all about building trust and living up to expectations so that trust evolves into long-lasting client relationships. I know it sounds a little clichéd, but one of the most rewarding things for me in my job is that after all our hard work I can hand someone the keys to their new home and hear them saying, “I can’t believe we’re here”. I live in the local area with my family and can’t recommend a better place to live.

Ray Steward


Hi, my name is Ray. Having previously worked in the property market I returned to the industry and joined the Epsom team in 2022. Although the industry has changed dramatically in recent years I like to believe it is still underpinned by the high standards and integrity that the best agents offer. There is no better feeling than matching the perfect home with the right buyer and helping both the vendor and purchaser through the process. One of the great things about working for The Personal Agent is the comradery and teamwork that not only makes every working day more enjoyable but is also essential to providing our clients the best possible service and expertise.
