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 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.

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.

“My husband and I went to Robert Cooney after having used a couple of other national estate agent chains with no results to speak of. The national chains did not offer the customer service, experience, and performance we expected for what we were paying. After switching to Robert Cooney it was a world of difference. We truly felt like they had our best interests at heart throughout the entire process. Moreover, throughout the process they were responsive, polite, friendly, and professional. You could tell that Robert Cooney didn’t have a high turnover of staff like the national chains do.
With the national chains it seemed like many viewings were not capitalized on since an inexperienced and uninformed member of staff would be given the task and thus an opportunity was wasted. With Robert Cooney even Robert Cooney himself took the time to show our house to prospective clients and this made all the difference. It is important to remember that when you are selling a house, the estate agent is your representative. If you want to be represented in a responsive, polite, friendly, and professional way then choose Robert Cooney.
We would unreservedly recommend Robert Cooney to our friends and family.”
