Hortons is a property agency created for the modern world.
Adam Horton started his career in property as an apprentice aged just 17, and progressed quickly at a traditional high street estate agency. A few years later in 2013, Adam set up his first estate agency business. The goal was to provide a local and more modern way to sell your home.
Today, in its simplest form, Hortons is a property agency that specialises in marketing, selling and letting homes. We’ve torn up the rule book and have built an agency fit for the modern world with professional, experienced agents at its core. Clients work with their own personal agent, known as a Partner, to ensure they get a high level of service and the very best advice. Partners are backed by Hortons’ industry leading support and marketing teams, meaning clients’ homes reach the widest audience possible.
Who we are
We believe that technology and creativity should go hand in hand to simplify the way people move home.
To be the most contemporary and people-centred property agency on earth.
Creativity is at the heart of everything that we do; in our approach to marketing, leadership, problem solving and company culture. For us to continue to be a leader in the industry it is important for us to keep evolving with new ideas – there is no such thing as a bad idea.
Relationships are precious and so is growth. Nurturing relates not only to the business but also our community; supporting personal development can help us become the best version of ourselves both inside and outside of work.
Ambition is a key part to our success. We believe that dreaming big ultimately leads to big success. It is important to strive and challenge ourselves everyday, which is only possible with the right mindset. Ambition leads to innovation.
Take the steps that nobody else has taken before. Keep moving forward. Hortons is built on taking risks and leading the industry’s revolution by making the first move. We look to be progressive not only as a business but as individuals too.
The most important value of all. We believe in equal opportunities for all, no matter what gender, race or background you come from. The Hortons environment is one that is diverse, inclusive and above all, equal.
Being conscious of our actions, their consequences and how they make people feel is a big thing to us. We need to be conscious of how our actions affect people, and also the effect that our business has on things such as the environment and the wider community. Acting with integrity builds trust and creates a working environment where teamwork prospers.
Honesty allows us to develop, learn and be better in the future. It is not there to catch people out, it is there to highlight where we need help. We can overcome problems together before they become too big, and also build strong relationships with one another.
