Having opened the doors of his eponymously named estate agency in October 2010, well known Tauntonian Robert Cooney has with the help of his dedicated team, grown the business to rapidly become one of the market leading professional estate agents in the locality. In that time, the team has grown to 11 people with probably the most wide ranging, interesting and varied property portfolio in the area. This, together with the organic growth that has been seen in the lettings and management side of the business, has meant the addition of a dedicated Lettings office in the town’s historic Hammet Street to service the additional demand that has resulted.
Robert Cooney is a lifelong resident of the town who has over thirty eight years’ experience in the profession locally. Having trained with what was then WRJ Greenslade & Co, he became qualified and went on to run the Taunton branch of a large multi disciplined West Country firm until its acquisition by Lloyds Bank. Throughout several mergers and acquisitions, Robert became Managing Director of Alder King, controlling 21 branches from Bristol in the North, down to the South Coast, whilst still based and living in Taunton.
Not wishing to ‘niche’ in any particular market segment, Robert Cooney markets properties right across the price spectrum and operates both Residential Sales and Lettings businesses. In addition, Robert advises landowners on development potential, often securing options to purchase, produces Gross Development Valuations, appraisals and feasibility studies for developers large and small.
Robert comments, “As principal of the business, I understand the need to focus on providing excellent property presentation and maximum exposure to channel traffic to your property. I have a superb team working alongside me, with a pro-active approach and a balance of integrity, skill, efficiency and care to offer both buyer and seller alike.
No gimmicks. No glib promises. Just great customer service, coupled with professional advice and a real desire to get the best price possible in the shortest period of time with the least amount of hassle for you.
They were handling the sale of our dream home and we bought it.
Mr C Wheeler & Mrs Lorna Wheeler
From our initial contact, through to the successful sale and completion of our property, we found all the staff at Robert Cooney to be extremely professional and courteous.
In the past we have sold properties using several local estate agents. In comparison the service we received through Robert Cooney exceeds all others. The ethos of Robert Cooney is to get the best price for your property by not over valuing purely to win custom and pay attention to detail. All the staff at Robert Cooney worked tirelessly on our behalf and within a relatively short time frame successfully sold our property.
The entire process of selling was made less stressful simply because of the professional nature of all the staff. From valuation and arranging viewings to contact with office staff on the telephone; everyone at Robert Cooney was working on our behalf.
We are now settled and very happy in our new home. However, should the time come when we are in a position to sell, we would definitely rely upon the professional services of Robert Cooney and would not even consider going else where.
From our personal experience, we cannot recommend the service of Robert Cooney highly enough.

Very attentive and happy to help me as a buyer, and good at making the process go smoothly. On the whole they were excellent at phoning me back and replying to emails. Charlie was my rep and I couldn’t fault his genuine and friendly manner and helpfulness. The only thing I would have appreciated is more after-care in the first few days and weeks of having the house.
Mr C Barrington
Set a realistic selling price and achieved it. The process through to completion was well managed and I was kept up to speed, despite their being a lengthy chain.
