Allsop: the firm, the services and the people who work here

Allsop is an independent property consultancy with a market-leading reputation for high quality service and integrity.  To many people we are best-known as the UK’s largest and most successful property auction house but our reach is considerably wider.

We have the people, the skills, the experience and the drive to maximise value for our clients in any given market and like to do business in our own distinctive Allsop style – open, friendly and honest. Clients appreciate this, which is why so many stay with us over the long term.

In an unpredictable world, Allsop remains a reassuringly constant source of market knowledge, insight and expertise.

Diversity and inclusion

We understand that in order to remain a leading property consultancy we need to recruit and retain the best talent.  Supporting diversity forms a key part of this strategy, ensuring we have the correct minds and skill sets to meet and exceed our varying and evolving clients’ needs and expectations.

As such we understand the importance and need to ensure our people, and our clients, feel welcomed, comfortable and valued in working for us or with us no matter their race, faith, educational background, gender, sexuality, disability, neurodiversity.

We believe that by embracing diversity and creating an inclusive culture for all, our people feel comfortable in being authentic which ensures we have a happy and motivated workforce.  This inclusive and motivated environment is paramount to delivering an excellent service to our clients which is why we continue to invest in our people.

Our charity work

Giving something back – it’s fundamental to the Allsop culture

When Pat Allsop died in 1992 and left his estate to the firm his father had founded, his partners decided to establish a charitable trust in his name, the proceeds of which were – and continue to be – used for education and the relief of poverty.

Corporate social responsibility and supporting good causes has, therefore, always been part of the Allsop culture but our charity work it’s not just about signing cheques. Whether it’s getting involved in sponsored jumps, bike rides and triathlons or providing auctioneers for fund raising events, we try to help where we can.

Over the winter months the Graduates at Allsop take part in the Westminster Churches’ Winter Night Shelter at Hinde Street Methodist Church. From November to March, the project provides overnight accommodation, dinner and breakfast for street homeless guests and the graduates enable the smooth running of the project. Their involvement includes making dinner, chatting to guests, clearing up and occasionally sleeping over.

Allsop is also a Foundation Partner of LandAid, the property industry’s leading charity, which gives the disadvantaged opportunities to reach their potential. Given the chance there’s nothing some of us like better than a bit of ‘get your hands dirty’ volunteering too.
