Harry Gladwin has joined The Buying Solution’s country team to run the firm’s Cotswolds region, while Country Head Jonathan Bramwell steps up to take on “a more active role” in the management of the company, with the title Head of TBS.
Qualified Chartered Surveyor Gladwin has moved to the buying side from parent company Knight Frank’s Oxford office, where he has been selling cottages, country houses and farms for the past decade or so. He counts himself as a Cotswold local, as his family has farmed land just outside of Chipping Campden since the early 18th century and he still lives in the ‘hood.
Bramwell’s been with TBS for about six years, having started out as a selling agent with Savills in Bath before setting up that firm’s buying agency arm in 2000 – which became Prime Purchase in 2002. After a quick year running Savills’ country house sales division from London, Bramwell joined Knight Frank’s acquisitions offering The Buying Solution in 2011, heading up the country team.
Jonathan Bramwell, Head of TBS: “This is a very exciting appointment for TBS. Harry has an outstanding knowledge of his patch after his many years as being one of the most successful selling agents, particularly in the area we now find that is the most sought after in the Cotswolds, which is the countryside to the north of the A40 between Oxford, Banbury and Cheltenham. He can now use his wide range of professional and personal contacts to add even further to TBS’s offering in this region which unquestionably makes us the strongest buying agents in this patch.”
Harry Gladwin: “I’m excited to switch my skills to the buying side where I’ll be able to use my comprehensive market knowledge to source the right property for my clients. I’m passionate about the Cotswolds and the countryside. Growing up locally with extensive family and professional connections across the region will undoubtedly help create the off-market opportunities that are crucial to this side of the business. Added to this, I’m also able to draw upon Jonathan’s experience and track record as the leading buying agent in the region since 2000. He will continue to work closely with me as he also lives in the region.”
