Foskett & Rodgers was formed in 2017 when we were initially based out of offices in Amersham. The long-term plan however was to wait for the right property to become available, in Chesham high street, where we have now put down our roots.
We feel it is important to have a high street presence, where potential landlords and tenants can easily drop in to meet with us and chat about their requirements.

Specialist Lettings Agent
I have been involved in the world of lettings for over fifteen years. My experience has not been gained through the traditional working with an agency route. In fact my first experience in 2003 was with a local authority where I was tasked with working with the street homeless in an inner London borough. It was a baptism of fire but very rewarding. I learnt a lot in my five years “on the streets”. It opened my eyes to a world hitherto unimagined by me.
From there I moved to another local authority. It was during my eight years there that I gained my formal qualification for lettings; the Level 3 NFOPP Technical Award in Residential Letting & Property Management. I was much more closely involved with the placement of tenants and learnt that the maintenance of tenant/landlord relationships was vital to a successful tenancy. I also became very conversant with how public money (Housing Benefit) and private enterprise (landlords) interlinked. It was whilst untangling some of the more tricky cases that I realised that there is almost always a solution to apparently tangled situations but it depends very much on the questions that are asked and how they are phrased to get the relevant information.
In the nearly three years that I have been away from the local authority I have run my own specialist lettings agency. This has involved straightforward lettings and supplying emergency accommodation for local authorities.
I very much enjoy all aspects of dealing with properties, whether it is dealing with tetchy tenants or landlords who are frustrated with trying to deal with local authorities or even just the fascinating day to day workings of the world of property lettings.
Specialist Lettings Agent
I have been doing Lettings and Property Management for what seems a lifetime but in fact it is around 22 years. I started with Property Management in Beaconsfield and soon went onto Lettings in Henley-on-Thames as a Branch Manager for several years.
I returned to Beaconsfield, as Branch Manager, for a few years and then moved to Great Missenden where I stayed for for 15 years! I did have a brief encounter in Chesham and this is when the idea was put to me to start our own business.
I hope this will be a great start to our success where I can continue to provide a good standard of service to all our Landlords but on a smaller scale where we can give the personal touch to all our clients.
I thoroughly enjoy trying to find the right person for the right property as this is the key point in letting a property!
