About Cantell & Co

Cantell & Co was established with one aim in mind; to put the client at the centre of our business.

We have built our agency with values that are underpinned by integrity. We chose a keystone as our logo because it embodies our structural honesty.

We are a privately owned estate agency and deliver a professional service but in a personal way.

While our experiences reflect decades of real, local knowledge and an in-depth understanding of the broader sector, it is our passion for people and property that motivates us.

We listen. We never presume.

David Cantell


We established Cantell & Co in 2013 to do things differently. Having worked for larger companies for over 10 years I want to concentrate on delivering a meticulous, honest and professional service. Living and working in Richmond gives me a unique insight into the local market and buyers benefit from my ability to prioritize the borough over other areas. My experience in central London has proved invaluable since many of my previous clients now consider Richmond one of their best options. We work with experienced, like-minded property professionals whose values of trust and dedication lead to a service with an holistic approach. As one of the few privately-owned estate agents in Richmond I see many clients prefer to deal with a small, agile business rather than the multi-branch model. Three years after opening our office, I am gratified by how well our fresh approach resonates with buyers and sellers.

Setting up Cantell & Co with David has been a truly rewarding experience. We believe that we are changing the way that agency is practised and perceived. Our genuine passion for people and property means we always give our best advice regardless of financial gain. Our business is built on trust and enduring relationships. We act with sincerity and transparency. Many of our clients become our friends; a clear indication of our endeavours. Being voted Best Customer Experience within 3 years of opening was a great accolade and the reviews on allagents.com are a pleasure to read. We have lived in Richmond for the last 10 years and establishing our business has given us the opportunity to immerse ourselves in the community. Our care and commitment for Richmond permeates both our personal and professional lives.

We are small and agile; fast to adapt to our clients’ needs and swift to spot where support is most needed. These are the credentials of a modern service.

We regard your sale as our priority and we will always deliver our best advice. Our bottom line is important to us but is not our top priority.

We know that close, solid relationships constructed with fairness are the key to supporting buyers and sellers during what is often the most important transaction of their lives.

We believe that your estate agent should be a local one. We have lived in Richmond for more than 10 years and we know the area right down to the day on which the bins are collected. We can even recommend a great restaurant for that moment when the movers have left and you are too exhausted to cook. Our team live here and are accountable. We have excellent relationships with solicitors, mortgage brokers and surveyors. We do not accept referral fees, so a recommendation from us is exactly that.

Above all, we practice what we preach.
