A Growing Agency


Weybridge & Sunninghill's Premier Agency

Already offering the best residential management and letting service to landlords and tenants in Weybridge and the surrounding areas in Surrey, APW has now considerably extended its geographical coverage by acquiring EHM - Expat Home Minders.

Valerie Shaw, Founder EHM, said, "I am delighted that APW has chosen Expat Home Minders (EHM) for its expansion into Berkshire. The two firms offer very high standards of care and service to their landlords and tenants and have built excellent reputations in their respective areas. I am confident that APW will successfully build on the business I have created. EHM is the premier residential management and letting agency serving the sought-after areas of Ascot, Wentworth, Virginia Water, Sunningdale, Sunninghlll and Englefield Green. The combination of our knowledge and expertise in the local market to complement APW's existing strengths is a real tour de force."

The acquisition of EHM, together with APW’s own outstanding performance, means that the value of APW Management Limited’s client property portfolio now exceeds £250 million.

Val Ware, Co Founder and Financial Director APW, said "This is a major result for us. We have purchased a first class operation that Valerie Shaw has built over the past 13 years. EHM will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of AFW Management Limited allowing us to offer an even bigger and better service. We are proud of the service we offer all of our clients, whether independent landlords or institutions, requiring a dedicated team to manage their properties. With EHM now on board, we can ensure that the very best areas in Surrey and Berkshire receive the very best service from APW and EHM."

Susan Annesley. Co Founder and Legal Director APW, said "APW’s and EHM's histories are very similar. Both were formed with very clear aims in mind - to offer the very best service to clients; to have the best selection of available properties and to understand and meet clients’ requirements 100%."

"We founded APW, and Val Shaw founded EHM, after personal experience of letting our own homes in the UK, whilst living and working overseas. Our success has resulted from our ability to identify the shortcomings of many letting agents and the importance of learning and meeting client's needs in full. The acquisition of Expat Home Minders (EHM) is a natural progression for APW which we are confident will further strengthen our position in the market place."
