Welcome to Hudson Property

Thank you very much for visiting our web site. If you're trying to choose an estate agent from the multitude of high street and online estate agents out there, then I'm confident that you've come to the right place.

The way people sell and let property is evolving at an incredible place, and we are constantly reviewing our service, pricing and technology to stay current and competitive.

 

The 'Holy Grail'

However, the core principles of estate agency have changed little. The 'holy grail' for any seller is surely to achieve the best possible price quickly with as little stress as possible.

Whilst no estate agent can guarantee to provide that, I like to think that we at Hudson Property often come close to achieving that, as our customer reviews hopefully confirm.

Many of our customers come to us through personal recommendation, or because they have used our services before, and we have an excellent reputation for not only our professionalism, helpfulness, and friendliness, but also for getting the job done properly and effectively.

When it comes to negotiation, we have over the years demonstrated that it is possible to take great care of prospective buyers and tenants, whilst still ensuring that we achieve the best possible outcome for our clients, the sellers and landlords.

 

Experience, Experience, Experience

I am extremely proud of my team, who are highly experienced and professional. We all have a background in property and legal services, with me being the least experienced with only 18 years' experience under my belt!

Since the recession of 2008 and subsequent economic clump, on average 30% to 40% of sales nationwide fall through each year between offer acceptance and legal completion. However, our fall through rate is typically about 10%, which we believe is due to the extensive legal knowledge and experience within our team, and our skills in diplomacy and problem-solving.

 

Local family history: from trawling for fish to trawling for houses

The Hudson family never seems to stray far from Hessle and west Hull. Oliver's father, Richard Hudson, a retired partner with PricewaterhouseCoopers in Hull, was the youngest of four brothers who grew up on Barrow Lane in Hessle with their parents, Charles and Anne. Charles played regularly for Hessle Rugby Club until the age of 22 when he contracted septicaemia which ended his sporting days, but he never lost his passion for sport and later became a Director of both Hull FC and Hull City. Charles was a local trawler owner and went on to become President of the British Trawlers Federation and Chairman of Seven Seas Limited. Oliver's great grandfather, Captain Charles Hudson, was born in 1878 and was lost at sea in 1931 during the Fastnet Ocean Yacht Race, which is recorded on a memorial in All Saints Church, Hessle.
