“All of us at The Personal Agent are so proud to have won the Best Overall Business in Epsom & Ewell Award. It means so much to us. We launched our business 12 years ago with no money in a small room in a serviced office above McDonalds and through hard work, belief, many great members of our team and the support of the local community, we are proof that anything is achievable if you put your mind to it.

Thank you so much to everybody again.”

Rupert Briggs – The Personal Agent
