Ian Godfrey started in estate agency way back in 1977, working for Bairstow Eves in Barnet, selling starter homes for the princely sum of £15,000 and upwards. A luxury family home cost about £30,000 at the time!
Later he worked for Potters selling much more luxurious homes in Totteridge and Mill Hill. He went into business opening Real Estates in Edgware and finally joined Druce & Co in Central London in 1983, where he progressed and joined their board of management as a director, until finally venturing out on his own together with Jonathan Barr, forming Godfrey & Barr in 1991 in Hampstead Garden Suburb and later Mill Hill.
The rest as they say 'is history'! Over 30 years of selling prestige homes in Hampstead Garden Suburb, Mill Hill and surrounds, Ian is one of the most experienced (and indeed now one of the oldest) estate agents around! Working through more than one recession, interest rates topping 15% and the general 'pitts and troughs' of the property market including a covid pandemic, Ian has seen it all!
He is married, with children and grandchildren, lives in the countryside and likes to take it easy these days, but only when he's not working! He has absolutely no interest in football whatsoever! He loves golf, photography, anything Apple, adores eating out, travelling and his gorgeous grandchildren, with whom he spends as much free time as possible.
