About “A Country Agent”

Rupert Devonshire is “A Country Agent

Rupert Devonshire developed his passion for property when he was just a child, always seeing the potential in run down homes and barns ripe for conversion.

Growing up in rural England he was exposed to some of the most wonderful country property and the scenery in which they sat. Studying a property related degree Rupert went on to begin his career as a country estate agent in a rural property practice, then later went on to become a Chartered Surveyor rising to the position of Partner and Head of Residential Sales.

He has won several awards over the years for his quality of service and he has made many contributions to local, regional and national press including market commentary for the BBC, and most recently in The Times newspaper.

His popular blog has been republished by the Country Squire Magazine and The Times newspaper in recent years and has a loyal following, described as “laugh out loud funny“, “superb” and a “cross between James Herriot & Doc Martin, but with more tweed and some beautiful houses!

If you have read any of his tales, you will appreciate that Rupert Devonshire is probably not his real name…
