-This is one such day
-for Iestyn Leyshon...
-..from Lloyd Herbert & Jones,
-Iestyn is in a special house
-on the outskirts of Aberystwyth...
-..to measure up
-before he puts it on the market.
-Wow! Aberystwyth in all its glory.
-With breathtaking views
-of Cardigan Bay...
-..this six bedroom house has been
-renovated to a very high standard.
-Iestyn valued it
-at nearly 900,000...
-..making it one of the most
-expensive houses on his books.
-This is the Beverley Hills
-Mr and Mrs Morgan
-bought the house seven years ago.
-They've built an extension which
-includes the lounge, the kitchen...
-..and the mezzanine.
-The original house
-had four bedrooms.
-There's also an annexe

-..a lounge, a kitchen
-and a shower room...
-..plus it comes
-with six acres of land.

-This slate floor is lovely.
-This new extension
-has underfloor heating.
-It's a very sociable space.
-I love this.
-I'll enjoy having this on the books
-and you need a jewel in the crown.
-People will want to see the details
-although they won't buy it.
-Let's buy lottery tickets and
-maybe stand a chance of buying it.
-Let's hope Iestyn can attract
-a jackpot winner to this house...
-..or any sort of buyer,
-come to that.
-I'd expect it to sell to someone
-who's moved away from the area...
-..and wants come home
-to retire in Aberystwyth.
-Someone who's sold their
-semi-detached house in London...
-..for more than 900,000...
-..and who want this wonderful house.
-The university and the hospital
-also attract top professionals.
-Maybe a surgeon who moves
-to the area will want this house.
-It's a pleasure to sell a house in
-the Beverley Hills of Aberystwyth.
-Now I've got to find a film star
-to buy it!
-In Llangefni, Ruth Tottey has worked
-for Dafydd Hardy for over 20 years.
-Let's pop upstairs
-to have a look at those figures.
-That period is coming to an end
-because Ruth about to retire.
-Having spent years working as the
-manager of the Llangefni office...
-..it's time to hand over the reins
-to the new manager, Iwan Jones.
-You've gone through
-the appraisals and the instructions.
-Iwan's been with us for a few months
-as we carry out a handover.
-He's getting a feel for the office
-and the way it operates.
-Sales look pretty good.
-We need three more this week.
-How does Ruth feel
-about the next period of her life?
-The biggest thing for me is
-having to leave this amazing team.
-These girls are like family to me.
-But I know Iwan will do
-a fantastic job in Llangefni.
-The office doesn't worry me.
-I worry more about me!
-So you're happy.
-So you're happy.
-High five. All the best.
-High five. All the best.
-Ruth has one more thing to look
-forward to with her work family.
-I'm really excited because we're
-going to Chester Races for the day.
-A busload of us will go and
-the Prosecco will flow like a river.
-The Dafydd Hardy family
-knows how to party...
-..so I can't wait.
-Glyn Owens from Clough & Co...
-..sells houses and farms
-in the auction room.
-Today, Glyn is at Bron Parc,
-a 300 acre farm near Ruthin.
-He wants to view it before it goes
-under the hammer in a few weeks.
-Miss Bronwen Jones lived here.
-Very sadly, Miss Bronwen Jones
-passed away late last year...
-..and it's the family's wish
-for us to sell Bron Parc at auction.
-I'm here today
-to prepare the particulars.
-An empty house like this
-is always a sad sight.
-had farmed here for many years.
-I've worked here since 1986...
-..and the family had dealings
-with the company long before then.
-There's been a connection
-for many years...
-..and it makes this
-more personal for us.
-We do our best for everyone...
-..but we want to do even better
-for the late Miss Bronwen Jones.
-This room was cosy,
-thanks to this Rayburn.
-It was also used for cooking...
-..and to get that kettle boiling.
-Years ago, I'm sure
-those bars were used to hang meat.
-It's good to see them intact.
-You can see
-the whole town from here.
-Beyond that, you can see
-the glorious Clwydian Range.
-That's Moel Famau.
-It's a wonderful location.
-Whoever purchases this house
-may renovate this room...
-..but I'd expect them to keep
-that very attractive fireplace.
-This old farmhouse
-is in need of modernization...
-..so does Glyn expect it
-to attract a buyer at the auction?
-If so, for how much money?
-The guide price for this house...
-..will be 320,000 - 370,000.
-I expect it to attract
-huge interest due to its location.
-Farms like this
-rarely come on the market...
-..and I strongly believe Bron Parc
-will attract many bidders.
-With a guide price of over 300,000
-and in need of renovation...
-..will someone be willing
-to breathe new life into Bron Parc?
-As one of Lloyd Herbert & Jones
-..there's no doubt Iestyn
-treats his staff really well.
-Are you doing any work today?
-Sell, sell, sell!
-Have we received any offers?
-Does someone want to buy a house?
-One of them is his daughter
-who has a summer job in the office.
-I can say anything I like to her.
-She never listens though!
-When Iestyn isn't being ignored
-by his daughter at work...
-..he likes nothing more
-than spending time with his son.
-This is Trystan Leyshon, my son.
-We've been away this weekend
-doing some racing, haven't we?
-Yes - motocross.
-It doesn't take long for Iestyn
-to revert back to estate agent mode.
-We converted this van to carry
-two bikes and all the kit we need.
-There's a double bed
-over the bike stand...
-..plus I have a kitchen
-and a lounge area.
-Come and take a look.
-I'm trying to sell you a house!
-This is the living area and this
-seat turns into a single bed for me.
-He gets the double bed on top.
-There's a toilet here.
-Let me tell you about this.
-This is my kitchen unit.
-When we cross the Severn Bridge...
-..we'd normally have to pay
-the commercial rate for this van...
-..but not if it contains a kitchen
-and you've converted it.
-This is my kitchen.
-There's a sink and a hob in here.
-I hope I get away with the same
-charge as a car to cross the bridge.
-I'm a miser!
-It was cheaper to add a kitchen than
-pay the commercial vehicle rate.
-Selling is in Iestyn's blood...
-..even on his day off.
-Being an estate agent...
-..can mean being part of
-an exciting, money-spinning project.
-One man who loves ambitious projects
-is Dafydd Hardy.
-Bryn Mel was built in 1889
-by the owners of the Titanic.
-This 39 bedroom manor home
-was bought by a businessman...
-..and work is underway
-to convert it into apartments.
-Dafydd is keen to start marketing
-the new Bryn Mel properties.
-This old building,
-last used as a care home...
-..is being converted
-into ten apartments.
-It's in a lovely location,
-above the Menai Strait...
-..with views of Snowdonia.
-This is an important instruction for
-us because we have an office nearby.
-We can take care of what will be
-a very popular development.
-What we have here is a bedroom
-with an en suite.
-There's a bathroom here too.
-is of a very high standard.
-Coming through here,
-we have another bedroom.
-This is a very luxurious lounge.
-I really like this Velux balcony.
-to let you enjoy a perfect view...
-..of the bridge
-out there, in the distance.
-The bottom opens
-to create a balcony.
-I think it would make
-a great bachelor pad.
-The owner is converting
-this property with real empathy.
-He has a feel for the building.
-He's kept a lot of the
-original features on the exterior...
-he's modernized the interior.
-There's a contemporary feel to it
-and that's what people want today.
-People want to live in
-an old building but in a modern way.
-The Bryn Mel project
-promises to be popular.
-What are Dafydd's plans for it?
-Well start to market it
-in the Spring of 2017...
-..and I'm confident we'll sell
-them all by the end of the year.
-That's my hope for this development.
-We'll also work with out client
-to find a new project for him...
-..once this is finished.
-I don't know
-where he gets his energy.
-It's auction day in Ruthin and
-the time has come to sell Bron Parc.
-The auction room is jam-packed.
-a 300 acre farm near Ruthin...
-..is an ideal place
-for a young family.
-If I may have your attention.
-Bron Parc, Llanfwrog, Ruthin,
-is in a wonderful location...
-..with views of the town
-and the glorious Clwydian Range.
-Any offers for Lot One - Bron Parc?
-200,000 I'm bid.
-Glyn has started
-below the guide price of 320,000...
-..but it soon rises.
-310,000 I'm bid.
-As the price creeps towards
-the guide price, the bids slow down.
-340. Do I hear 350 quickly?
-Glyn's perseverance pays off
-as the bids exceed the guide price.
-385. New bidder in. 390. 400.
-The bids climb
-30,000 above the guide price.
-Can Glyn push the price even higher?
-495. 500,000 I'm bid.
-Bidding stands at 130,000 higher
-than the guide price...
-..and the price keeps on rising.
-595. 600. 600 for lot number one.
-Will the bids exceed 600,000?
-635,000 for the first time.
-635,000 for the second time.
-for the third and last time.
-Thank you, Mr Jones. 635,000.
-and the family will be happy too.
-Having said that, it's a great farm.
-I'm delighted to say
-it was bought by a young family.
-Let's hope the family
-can move in very soon...
-..and enjoy Bron Parc,
-as did its previous owners.
-It's the day
-of Ruth's retirement party.
-Where better to celebrate
-than Chester Races?
-Dafydd Hardy is determined
-to give Ruth a great send-off...
-..and he has booked a private box
-for Ruth and her colleagues.
-Ruth, the star of the show, is given
-a warm welcome upon her arrival.
-We've all come together
-and we're celebrating.
-These people are amazing.
-They know how to throw a party.
-Ruth is leaving
-and I'm gutted actually.
-Iwan has a difficult job,
-taking over from her...
-..because Ruth has been a real
-mother hen through everything.
-She takes the girls under her wing
-and she teaches us.
-She started at the bottom
-and worked her way to the top...
-..and she likes bringing people
-through the ranks, which is lovely.
-She knows what it's like
-and that's fantastic.
-more than Ruth's retirement.
-Here we are at the races!
-The crew hopes to strike it lucky
-with the horses...
-..no-one more so than Sophie.
-I'm going to put a bet down
-on Baker Street and hope it wins...
-..to pay for tomorrow's food shop.
-I need to win money.
-Joke or not, Sophie's clearly hoping
-her luck's in today.
-Sophie's horse didn't finish first.
-Better luck next time, Sophie.
-In Ruthin, after Bron Parc sold at
-auction for a remarkable 635,000...
-..Glyn has the pleasure of handing
-over the keys to the new owners.
-The big day has arrived.
-Are you looking forward to it?
-What's the first step?
-will take a look at it tomorrow...
-..and we'll take it from there.
-I'm glad you bought it,
-as a young Welsh-speaking family.
-Good luck in your new venture.
-Thank you very much.
-I can't wait to call by
-when you've finished it...
-..to have a cup of tea
-or an orange juice.
-You'll be very welcome.
-All the best.
-All the best.
-We travelled to Ruthin every day
-and we looked across at this place.
-We said if it ever came
-on the market, we'd like to buy it.
-It's the ideal place
-for us to start, as a family.
-We always act
-on the vendor's behalf...
-..but it's lovely to see
-a local, young family here.
-The late Bronwen Jones
-would have been delighted...
-..to see a family here too.
-Job's a good 'un.
-In Chester, Dafydd wants to
-bid farewell to Ruth in style.
-We're here today to celebrate Ruth.
-What a fantastic, glamorous lady.
-and fantastic with her staff.
-and let's drink to Ruth.
-Oggy, oggy, oggy.
-Oggy, oggy, oggy.
-Oi, oi, oi!
-They're the best people
-in the world.
-Do you see this little heart?
-The Dafydd Hardy family
-fills my heart.
-Ruth has been with us
-for 20 years...
-..and she's a key member
-of the company.
-She will be sorely missed,
-without a doubt.
-I feel quite sad to be
-leaving this family to be honest...
-..but I do feel
-it may be time for me to slow down.
-It's the end of an era for Ruth,
-as an estate agent...
-..but she'll always be a member
-of the Dafydd Hardy family.
-While there's a housing market,
-there will be estate agents.
-What are our estate agents' hopes
-for the future?
-We're looking at different areas.
-We cover Swansea and Llanelli.
-We've gone into
-Carmarthen and Cardiff.
-We'll keep doing what we're doing.
-We've got to look at technology
-and possibly create virtual offices.
-With a virtual office,
-you have people out in the field...
-..but they're not necessarily
-working from an office.
-I love my job,
-so I want to carry on.
-My hopes for the future is
-for Clough to continue to thrive.
-We have young men
-within the company...
-..and I hope they can
-take the company forward.
-I've only been there since February
-and I learn ten things a day.
-It's a lot to take in.
-It's a lot
-but I'm getting there I think.
-You've got to carry on.
-You may sell ten houses one day...
-..but you've got to
-do the same thing again tomorrow.
-This business never stops.
