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.
The service and professionalism was absolutely spot on from start to finish. With a knowledgeable and insightful market appraisal by Rob at the start, and on through the entire selling process expertly aided by Gail and Sarah, we were extremely happy with the whole experience. We would unhesitatingly recommend Cooneys Estate Agents to anyone with confidence.
Very professional and friendly. Tilly and William are major assets to the company.
Professional service and really polite staff. Kept well informed and very impressed as a buyer looking at 450k property. Dealt with Gail.Only reason not 4 stars is sometimes the office is a bit slow to respond but very professional non the less.
It’s very hard to explain in words how incredible the team and customer experience is at Robert Cooney. We’ve bought and sold properties with them throughout the pandemic and would never use another estate agent around. Communication and attention to detail is nothing short of exceptional and Gail was out of this world with knowledge and enthusiasm from sale through to completion of the process. We wouldn’t recommend another estate agent to use – these guys are the best in Somerset and beyond!
Brilliant friendly support. Great professional service from a local team who understand that buying and selling a house is at once an emotional experience and a major financial transaction, and they help with both aspects. Excellent recommendations for surveyor and solicitor meant it went through in record time, by Christmas! Thanks.
Chris, Gail and Sarah at Robert Cooney's provided an incredible service and helped me sell my home within 7 weeks. The support day-to-day was very reassuring and kept us on track. I will be using them again next time around! Thanks to you all and merry Christmas!
One of the struggles of overseas nurse is finding the right place where you can call home. I finally got the place I've been eyeing on for months!. All thanks to RC.Highly recommended with superb assistance!Kudos to Anisha Barber!

Although I ended up getting a property through another estate agents, RC were probably the easiest and most personable letting agents to deal with in town. Thanks especially to Anisha for going above and beyond to accommodate viewings around my work schedule.
The whole team at Robert Cooneys have been wonderful throughout the entire process. We were immediately put at ease by their professionalism on the first visit and they knew all the questions to ask to make the exchange of contracts smoother.They were always friendly and returned calls quickly and were happy to answer any and all enquiries.During the actual sale process they kept us informed at all times of what was happening and we were particularly impressed with their progression team, who kept on top of us, our buyers and both sets of solicitors to ensure as smooth a process as possible.All in all they were wonderful and we would recommend them, and indeed have already, to anyone who is looking to sell their property.
Brilliant service and extremely friendly. Big thanks to Gail
