Discover what makes us one of the leading firms of Chartered Surveyors in East Anglia.
Our founding partners launched Morley Riches and Ablewhite in 2001. This consisted of Samantha Morley, Peter Riches, and Jon and Teresa Ablewhite. Peter Riches and Jon Ablewhite have worked together since 1986. Forming a new, independent company allowed us to share our knowledge and experience of the property industry and develop long-term, meaningful relationships with clients, making business a pleasure for both parties. These values set us apart from other organisations in our industry as we are more focussed on how we do things.
We started in Crouch Street, Colchester, and the next five years saw real growth for the business. We quickly started attracting more clients, and as a consequence, our team started to grow. In 2006, we moved, buying our own premises at Kings Court where we continue to operate from today. This was a defining moment for the business; achieving what we set out to do and doing it successfully.
Our core services now include commercial property agency, property management, valuation, landlord and tenant advice, building surveying and development consultancy.
The future development of the business is rooted in the next generation of Morley Riches & Ablewhite. We continuously invest time in the development of our younger staff to secure our legacy and ensure we continue to provide the expert, honest advice and practical guidance our customers need.
