The Horton and Garton story

It was “thebrit-pop” summer of ’96 and John Horton knew nothing about property. He did know he owed his mum a lot of money after spending 18 months backpacking around Australia and India. One impromptu job interview later, he was snapped up by the property industry and has never looked back.

Fast forward two decades and John is still selling and letting houses. In 2008, after eleven years of living and working for two corporate agencies in West London he realised he could do things much better. He set out to create what would become one of Hammersmith’s most successful multi-award winning independent businesses. John’s reputation and that of his team precedes them and his is now the number one estate agency for both sales and lettings in W6 and W12.

The team boasts over a century of experience in West London property. The HG office front door doesn’t revolve; the majority of John’s colleagues have been at Horton and Garton for years. Sales Manager, Martin Clements has been with him since day one, Senior Manager, Ashley Clements has been at the helm since year one. John insists his team are all industry trained and qualified, live and work in the areas Horton and Garton represents so they can bring their unique perspective of being both a local resident and the local property professional.

He added to his ranks in April 2017, appointing experienced Chiswick Director, Paul Cooney to captain Horton and Garton’s new W4 office. Within our first year of business, Horton and Garton rocketed into the top four agencies in Chiswick for sales agreed and took home coveted British Property Awards for Best Agency in Chiswick, Best Agency in West London and Best Agency in London 2018 Paul was shortlisted for the prestigious Zoopla awards 2019 and Paul’s next purchase will be a trophy cabinet over a seaside retreat. Known for his ability to deftly match a buyer to their ideal property, often before the property has reached the open market, Paul has sold in excess of £300 million of Chiswick property.
