Escape to the country, our story

Above video is less than one minute

We are Christine & Tony Coe, the founding owners of the relocation company that we launched in the 1980s.

When COVID hit, and as soon as the first lockdown started we saw the writing on the wall. So, much as we had loved living and working in London for over 30 years, we decided it was time to plan our own relocation away from the city.

In the circumstances, our 5-year plan became our 5-week plan!

The day we were allowed out of lockdown, we started physically viewing potential homes. Within a couple of months, we’d moved to The Cotswolds lock, stock and barrel.

After the move, we started People & Property – THE relocation podcast In our weekly show, we’ve been talking about how we started our relocation firm in Kensington.

We hope you enjoy listening to our story as much as we’re enjoying telling it. If you like it, please share it with your friends and colleagues.

The service we received is excellent. Honestly, I wouldn't know what I'd do if the Saunders 1865 team was not there to support me every step of the way.
