How Chris Differs From Other Chelmsford Estate Agents?
When choosing me to be your personal Chelmsford estate agent, you will receive my full attention to suit all your needs. Where your typical high street estate agency will only care about transactions and leads, I don’t get paid until your property has been sold, and because I only ever work with a few clients at any one time, I will keep you updated on a regular basis and be your one point of contact throughout the process, be it from marketing your property, overlooking the viewings or finding the right tenant for your property.
My aim is to be available to you throughout the whole process, right up to handing you the keys on that happy day.
I got into estate agency through my love for people, property and being busy, and I have loved every minute of it. Being an independent estate agent allows me to work how I want and keep to the traditional values of customer service.
My extensive knowledge of the local area. the latest properties coming onto the market and current market trends allow me to offer my customers expert property advice whenever they need it.
So why not let me help you on your journey of selling or finding that new home and keeping it as stress-free as possible?

What people say about Chris Allen
“Chris Allen recently came to value my property after we had work completed. I was so impressed with the research Chris had done before his visit. The house is quite unusual, old but with a new extension. Chris was able to assess the value realistically and is clearly very knowledgeable about the market. I would not hesitate to call on Chris w…
Your Local Independent Estate Agents.
To be honest, when it comes to picking the right estate agents to sell your Chelmsford property, you shouldn’t expect anything less than a professional and local estate agent who knows the current market and has their finger on the pulse when it comes to understanding property prices and trends within the community.
I work closely with my clients, taking phone calls any day of the week and strive to deliver the best property sales service possible.
Picking The Right Chelmsford Estate Agents.
Believe it or not, it’s not all about price when choosing the right estate agent to sell or rent your Chelmsford property. Do they have extensive knowledge of the local area, do you consider them to be a local property expert, have they had recent success in sales or lettings near your location, do they offer a free valuation?
These are just a few of the questions you should be asking yourself when choosing the right estate agent to help with the sell or rental of your property.
When you work with me, you can expect exceptional results, hard work and a person who will value you and your needs.
Chelmsford is a vibrant up and coming city that is continuing to grow, with a railway line straight into London within 30 minutes, making that commute to work a little bit easier. But if you’re not much of a commuter, then Chelmsford has the hustle and bustle of a city, whilst also having the quietness of the countryside on the outskirts of the main town so that you can enjoy the nearby nature, wildlife and peaceful walks. Why choose when you can have it all!
Chelmsford also has two Park & Ride facilities, both based on the outskirts of Chelmsford City, to help ease the congestion of this forever-growing city.
There are lots of other great things to do here too, with 2 cinemas, and plenty of restaurants – including Zenxi, Olio, Cosy Club, Pizza Express, Wagamama’s, Turtle Bay and Las Iguanas. There are also tons of bars, such as The Wine Cellar, Bootmaker, The Ale House, Bar & Beyond and The Railway Tavern, to name but a few.
Fun Things to do.
Plenty is always happening in Chelmsford, such as a day at the races, or the local theatre, which hosts concerts, plays, talks, and musicals for all the family to enjoy.
The Chelmsford Cathedral sits in the heart of the city and also offers events such as lunchtime and evening concerts. It also offers beautiful architecture and provides some fantastic artwork.
If you are into sport, Chelmsford Cricket Team play at the Essex County Cricket Club. Other sports to enjoy include football, hockey and if you’re into horses, check out Chelmsford Equestrian Centre.
The Riverside Leisure Centre offers an ice rink, swimming and other facilities and is also situated in the heart of Chelmsford.
Local Schools & Shops.
There are many Schools in Chelmsford for this growing city, including the Chelmsford Girls High School, New Hall School and King Edward School for Boys, as well as lots of good, infant, junior and comprehensive schools.
With Chelmsford growing and expanding quickly, it now offers Anglian Ruskin University and Writtle University College, where students from around the country come to study.

From the Chelmsford Market to Higher-end shops in the recently built Bond Street, plus there are two indoor shopping centres – High Chelmer and The Meadows with all you’re high street favourites.
Attractions in Chelmsford.
Chelmsford City Museum
If you are new to Chelmsford, then I would strongly recommend visiting the Museum which is in Oaklands Park off Moulsham Street. Here to can learn about all of Chelmsford’s past from the ice age to the present day, there is plenty to see and do for all ages. There is also a café called the Hive where you can enjoy a lovely lunch, I would also recommend taking a picnic on a nice day to eat in the park. There is also a shop selling gifts, entry to the museum is free.
Chelmsford City Theatres
There are 2 Theatres both located next to each other in Fairfield Road, one is the Civic Theatre which seats 505 people and the other one is the Cramphorn theatre which seats 165 people. There is a real mix of entertainment throughout the year catering for all ages, and I would highly recommend the Christmas Jazz night where you can enjoy some great music with a bottle of wine.
Riverside Leisure Centre
The Riverside Leisure is in the middle of the city on Victoria Road, there is certainly a lot to do here for all the family including a 10 lane 25-meter pool with a flume also which is great fun.
There is also a 130-station gym with free weights, screens for your entertainment whilst you work out and the gym is fully air conditioned. Plus, you can get help with your fitness and nutrition from one of the members of staff.
If you are into ice skating, then you can spend some family time on the ice which is one of my favourite activities at the leisure centre.
There is also a soft play area for children to enjoy and a creche along with a café to get refreshments.
Essex County Cricket Club
The Essex County Cricket Club is in the city centre along the River Can and can be accessed from New Writtle Street. You can have a great day out watching the Eagles play in all types of competitions and I especially enjoy watching the 20/20 matches under the flood lights, there is always a great atmosphere.
Just slightly outside of the city centre is Hylands House which was built in 1730 and I would recommend taking a tour. Throughout the year there is many activities going on from exhibitions, food markets, flower shows and music festivals. There is also a great adventure park for children to enjoy. One of my favourite events is the dogs show as I do love my four-legged friends. Also, you will find a book shop and a café on the site.
Please not that there is a discount for parking if you are a Chelmsford resident.
Chelmsford City Racecourse
Located just north of Chelmsford City on the A131 is the racecourse, there is plenty going on all year round here including evening races which are very enjoyable especially if you are having a bit of luck, the restaurants and bars are very enjoyable so take some friends and family and have a great evening. Also during the year are music festivals which have a huge range of artists. There is also a beer festival which takes place serving some of the best German beer. I am sure that if you are living in Chelmsford you can’t afford to miss out on a night out here.
Jump Street is located on Richmond Road in Dukes Park Estate, now this is the place to take the family if you are feeling super energetic! There is a lot of fun to be had, now apart from the trampolines there is also a climb wall and a soft play area as well as a host of games that you can enjoy like Dodge Ball and Toxic Wipeout. This is also a great place to treat your children to their own private party with their friends. There is also a café onsite.
Chelmsford Escape Rooms
Located at Moulsham Mill near to the Army & Navy roundabout. The escape rooms are great fun, and I would highly recommend booking a couple of sessions with some friends. I can’t go into too much detail as I am sworn to secrecy, but it honestly is brilliant.
Located on Beehive Lane is Lathcoates Farm, this is a great place to take the family and they host lots of events throughout the year including my favourite one which is the strawberry picking. They also have some of the best apples that you can possibly find that are grown in their own orchard. Be sure to visit the Bee Shed coffee house for an afternoon tea. There is also some farm animals to go and see too, along with a well-stocked shop.
Chelmsford Canoe Club
The Canoe Club is in the heart of the city right next to the river Chelmer and almost at the point where it meets the river can. Now there’s no better way to see the city than from its lovely rivers. The club has a policy where you will have to undertake a trial session then after this you can become a member and join in with the many events that they have going on all year around. Great fun and a good way to keep fit.
Why Chris Partners With eXp?
For those of you that don’t know. eXp is an American estate agency model that landing in the UK in 2018 and now boast an impressive network of professional property experts throughout the UK.
I partnered with them because it works. They allow me to run me own estate agency business but without all the expensive overheads, meaning I can be competitive with market rates whilst delivering excellent customer service and results to my clients. I don’t need to be selling 20+ properties to survive and am more than comfortable selling just 2-3 a month. So, as a result, I can give my customers and their properties my complete attention and focus on giving the service that I want to provide to the community of Chelmsford.
To be honest, I would never want to go back to the normal estate agents standard of working and although I now work on my own for my business, I am surrounded by a specialist team of property and marketing experts who are here to help me and my property portfolio
