The group of ‘Gatehouse’ Companies started in 1988, with our first small UK Estate Agency office in a little known town of Kimbolton in Cambridgeshire.
We began business at the start of a property recession that lasted for several years. Through application and supply of a very personal service, our reputation grew as a business that was innovative and successful. When we purchased the site that we have our Bedford office at, we acquired a small rental property portfolio of just 35 properties. Since that moment, we have grown to an operation that manages around 300 rental properties in Kempston, Bedford, St Neots, Huntingdon and Godmanchester.
Gatehouse Estates Property Management always has a selection of properties to rent.
By the time we had opened our sixth office, we were approached by a client with a chateau to sell in France. Our approach had always been to innovate and we marketed the Chateau with great success, when much larger ‘International Estate Agents’ turned the business away. What followed was more requests from the Caribbean, Portugal and Spain for us to apply our marketing to those areas. With that, Gatehouse International was formed and now sells properties overseas in 13 countries.
Gatehouse International now has over 7000 properties for sale. As International estate agents,we offer new and resale villas, townhouses, apartments, brand new developments as well as plots and ruins. Gatehouse International has offices in Europe including the UK and Portugal. We offer everything from permanent homes, holiday homes, golf and leisure retreats, business opportunities to purely investment purchases including off plan deals. Call 01480 434290 for advice on buying abroad, gaining a mortgage overseas or help in selling.
With the web becoming such a dominant marketing tool in the property industry, we sold our UK sales operation in 2007 and now concentrate on our UK property management, International Property sales and will shortly be launching a web site where individuals can advertise their own properties, anywhere in the World, for a very small one-off advert fee. There won’t be any additional charges whatsoever.
We believe in the web so much that we have our own full time IT professionals and manage over 40 web sites.
