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.
We had a fantastic experience with the members of Robert Cooney. We were always able to contact someone and the manner of most of the staff was friendly and informative.
The only thing I feel that could be improved is more viewing slots. Sometimes we couldn’t view the properties we had shortlisted for a good few days due to busy diary’s. I understand this does happen but it is the only matter that could be improved. Perhaps more diary slots and for longer for 2nd viewings would be helpful.
Adam and Lucie are fabulous estate agents. They have been wonderful during the whole process.

The team at Robert Cooney are fantastic, it doesn’t matter who picks up the phone they are always up to speed with what’s happening with regard to viewings, offers and sales progress. They take time to understand your needs as a buyer and unlike some agents don’t bombard you with all properties on their books.
I have used Robert Cooney for both the sales of my properties and to buy and I honestly cannot recommend them highly enough.
Mr and Mrs J James
We were looking to buy a house in the Taunton area since November 2018 and registered with all the agents in Taunton. By far the best have been Robert Cooney. Friendly, very professional, listened to us, understood what we were looking for, and were always pro active. We always felt that they were doing their utmost to help us. Highly recommended.
Mr Mrs Carrigan
Robert Cooney sold our house in 6 viewings. We would like to thank Stuart for finding a buyer for us so quickly and Sarah for going above and beyond to progress the sale and onward purchase. We would definitely recommend Robert Cooney.
