Meet the Team
Richard Ladd (MNAEA)
Roost Estate Agents was launched in July 2020 by local Estate Agent Richard Ladd. Learning his trade originally in Manchester and Edinburgh, working in the cities and in Estate Agency now for over 13 years, has opened his mind into different ways a traditional Estate Agents can operate and sell your home. Richard has his Level 3 PropertyMark Qualification in Residential Sales, which coupled with his genuine interest in all things property related, gives him a wealth of experience and knowledge in this sector.
