Meet the team


Richard Halliwell

Richard Halliwell has enjoyed a first class career as an estate agent. Previously working for a leading Surrey agency, Gascoinge-Pees, part of the Countrywide Group, for 17 years before setting up Halliwell Marks, Richard worked his way up from trainee negotiator to regional manager, looking after 11 offices across Surrey. He was named top regional manager for London and the South East three years running, as well as most improved branch in 2006 out of the whole of Countrywide's 1200 offices.

In 2013, Richard set up Halliwell Marks in Reigate, using the wealth of experience he developed throughout his career, as well as his detailed knowledge of the housing market in Surrey and Reigate in particular. Richard believes passionately that estate agents can deliver an exceptional service, and has proven that Halliwell Marks can deliver this to Reigate and the surrounding area.

Brought up in Buckland, Richard moved back to Reigate in 2005 and now lives in East Road, just off Nutley Lane, with his wife, Beth, daughter Anna, and Doris, the Airedale Terrier.


David Barrett

Having left the RAF, David joined Gascoinge Pees in 1980, managing several offices successfully throughout his career. He had a brief stint working for Seymours in Guildford, before joining the Halliwell Marks team in 2019. David's experience of over 40 years in the industry is invaluable in helping us achieve our aim of being the best estate agent in the area.

David lives in Dorking with his wife Rita, and two teenage sons.


Rachel Bourke

Rachel moved to Reigate in 2013 where she lives happily with her husband Simon and two sons. She joined Halliwell Marks in 2015 and has gained a wealth of experience in all aspects of the business. Rachel continues to offer able support to all of Halliwell Marks' valuable clients.

Rachel previously worked for 8 years in customer-facing roles at The Law Society and the Quality Conveyancing Scheme, and prior to this in administration at a barristers' chambers in Grays Inn Court and a solicitors' firm near Sloane Square.

Thank you ! We are now living in the home which was on the market with Halliwell Marks. With good advice and support from Richard and colleagues, we all got there in the end. We first viewed the house with Rachel, who is so knowledgeable, and helpful and was really happy for us when she handed us the keys.
Anne and Andrew, May 2019
Excellent Service & Excellent Results. After using another agency who promised the earth but did not deliver, we instructed Richard and the team at Halliwell Marks to sell several properties we had within a portfolio and were very impressed by the professionalism and speed that Halliwell Marks found buyers and got the sales through to completion."

We are happy to recommend Halliwell Marks. We would urge your prospective clients to make the change from their current agents to your firm, as we did. I am just sorry that we persevered with our initial agent for so long. In contract to their performance, we have nothing we can criticise about the way you and your team have handled the marketing, viewings, offer negotiations and subsequent follow up. You sold our house for us in 3 weeks, whereas Hamptons had it on their books for more than 20 weeks. Faultless, Perfect, Highly Professional, Very Friendly, and Successful all fully describe how we feel about you and your team."
