Situated on the A6 mid-way between Bedford and Kettering, Rushden is the fifth largest town in East Northamptonshire.

When the adjoining town of Higham Ferrers is included, the population is estimated at around 36,000. From its farming and 19th Century industrial roots, today’s Rushden is benefiting from a local regeneration project that is focussing on the town’s High Street alongside many new investment initiatives highlighted by the national ‘North Londonshire’ awareness generating campaign. Plans are in place for a £40m retail and leisure facility that will include shops, hotels a leisure centre and marina on the River Nene.

Recognising that such a large residential area had relatively little representation from quality Estate Agents, in early 2010 Andrew Simpson teamed up with local property expert Mark Weekley to open Simpson & Weekley. With the same offering of client commitment, unprecedented knowledge and access to the No.1 marketing network, within six months Simpson & Weekley became the local market leader.

With Rushden-Higham and Irchester's developing interests and attractive property prices, 2014 has seen the area become a draw for first-time-buyers and cash buying ex-renters, who are taking advantage of the many new mortgage products available. There has also been a large number of, ‘empty-nesters’ who are taking the opportunity to free up some of their equity by down-sizing.

With the future looking very positive you can rest assured that whether you’re looking to Buy, Sell, Let or Rent, Simpson & Weekley are your key to success in Rushden, Higham and Irchester.

Alison Thomas

Branch Administrator

I have been working in estate agency within both sales and lettings for approx. 27 years. I contacted Mark about joining Simpson and Weekley as I have known Mark for a number of years after previously working with him within another estate agents office. I have a very busy home life with 4 children all going in different directions at the same time, which is why I enjoy being within the Rushden office making sure the admin side runs smoothly and keep everyone happy.

Nicola Jane

Lettings Manager

I joined Simpson & Weekley when we first opened in 2010 and set up the Lettings Department. I am extremely passionate about my job and strive to give all of my clients the best possible service. Having lived in Rushden all my life, I find local knowledge is paramount to being able to achieve this.

I have worked for Simpson and Weekley for 4 years now within sales and lettings, but have approx 9 years experience within the industry. My current role is now a Lettings Administrator at Simpson & Weekley. I enjoy my role assisting the Lettings department but also love that I get to help in all areas of the office using past experience as a negotiator. I am married and have two young children who keep me busy, but I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.

Nikki Ross

Trainee Sales Negotiator

After working for 13 years in the hair and beauty industry, I felt it was time for a change. I decided that after following the process of house buying throughout my own purchase, this line of work would appeal to me. I have now been doing the role for 8 months and have learnt so much and I am really enjoying the job and love the people I work with in the office. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, and running around after my 2 children!
