Why Goodchild?

When you instruct an estate agent, it is ultimately about selling your property.

Whether the estate agent will optimise your selling price, and make what can be a complex process as seamless as possible for you, are the key distinguishing factors.

Founded based upon 25 successful years in the industry, but with a clean slate in the 2020s allowing us to embrace the best that technology can offer, gives us the platform to shine. This is why you won’t get a better estate agency service anywhere else in Bristol.

Broad experience covering every scenario

We are one of the very few property consultancies in Bristol, the South West even, who can offer expert advice on all aspects of property: residential, commercial, auction, investment and land, new home sales, retirement property moves as well as letting and property management.

This means our holistic approach will help you find the right path.

Winning marketing strategies

Frankly, some properties virtually sell themselves, whilst others require a more nuanced approach. In either case, we will add value to your sale, by choosing the correct strategy to sell your home. We cannot overstate how important this is for achieving the best value for you, and it is something you only get with experience.

Senior representation throughout

One pitfall of many an estate agency is that your initial interactions are with an experienced senior, someone who can talk the talk and walk the walk; but then as the selling process progresses you find it is less experienced staff who take a lead. They are still learning the industry and sadly will miss opportunities from time to time.

At Goodchild, James manages the process throughout, ensuring that every customer benefits from all of his experience, all of the time.

Expert marketing resources

We understand that high quality marketing is paramount, so we employ and work with some of the very best marketing people, designers and photographers in the industry. This ensures we are at the cutting edge of marketing, as well as of experience.

A glossy website and slick PR look the part, but they need to be backed up by solid professionalism.

Part of the community

We help people move into the community they aspire to, but we also play our part in building those communities through volunteering and charity work. From leading community events to raising money for worthy causes and sponsoring children’s sports teams, it is important that we give back and help everyone thrive.

Embracing technology where it adds value

We believe traditional values and service go a long way in any business, and therefore old-school courtesies and connection are central to our service. But we also recognise the powerful impact technology can make in any profession, and estate agency is no exception.

Therefore, we pick out the best that technology has to offer to make your experience of selling a house through Goodchild even better.

Sustainability matters

Every business and individual needs to play their part in looking after our planet, and by choosing Goodchild Estate Agents you are choosing a company which is dedicated to this cause. From partnering with Ecologi to plant trees, to running a 90% paperless office, and hybrid/electric only fleet, we take every effort to keep our carbon footprint to a minimum while we serve you.


We’re not a franchise or corporate firm, and personal trust is at the heart of our service. Reputation is everything to us. Being a proudly independent firm you have our absolute assurance that we’ll never sacrifice our principles for a short-term gain, and you’ll always find us honest and frank with our advice. Simply, we rely on recommendation to grow our business.
