Branch Manager: Simon Dredge
1 Aldridge House Elms Road
I love managing the office here; I grew up in Hook as a child and have moved back to the village with my wife and son and really enjoy living in such a great community.
Simon Dredge Branch Manager
Simon is one of Mackenzie Smith’s longest serving agents having first joined the company back in 2007. His background in marketing, coupled with the fact he grew up in Hook, meant he was a valuable asset to the team from day one. Over the last decade, Simon has enjoyed building relationships with many in the local community and has earnt himself an excellent reputation for providing accurate valuations and attentive customer care.
If Simon isn’t in the office, you’ll find him on the slopes, with skiing being one of his favourite getaway activities. His love of extreme sport also extends to mountain biking and the annual 24 Hours of Le Mans race.
I always look to offer an honest and straight talking approach, advising clients on the current market conditions, whilst offering excellent customer service.
Kieran Egan Senior Client Manager
Senior Client Manager
Kieran first joined the property industry back in 2011, and he has since gone on to work at both independent and corporate agencies across Sandhurst, Farnborough and Camberley. Such varied experience means that Kieran has valued and sold everything from one-bedroom flats all the way through to country manors. Along with his knowledge of the local property market, Kieran also promises his clients an honest approach from day one.
Away from work, Kieran spends time with his wife Emily, their cat Louie and can, on occasion, be found on a golf course practising his swing. He’s also a passionate football fan, with Aston Villa being his team of choice.
For those looking for a more rural locality, our Hook office can offer a selection of individual and character properties in the surrounding countryside and up to the fringes of Basingstoke, including Old Basing, Newnham, South Warnborough, Odiham and Rotherwick.
The majority of Hook was built in the late eighties and early nineties, so the village is greatly populated by modern houses within estates which have always been in demand, but in particular the North side of the village has always been the preferred side of Hook. From here the village is easy to walk to and the open countryside to Rotherwick and beyond are also very close by.
Hook is unique in that, just a short stroll from the village centre and mainline station, almost every type of property can be found; apartments (new and old), retirement housing, family homes, character properties; it really does offer a diverse mix, all in walking distance.
The area also boasts a variety of family-friendly housing developments including the popular Holt Park, which provide good value for the growing family with countryside walks on the doorstep. The business parks are being regenerated; some buildings which used to be home to large businesses are now converted into apartments, offering affordable living just off Junction 5 of the M3.
The surrounding villages, such as Newnham, Odiham and Rotherwick are well-renowned for period properties and unique country homes, as well as benefitting from a rural location.
There is a selection of new build apartments in the centre of Hook, which do offer Help to Buy, making it an affordable place to start your journey on the property ladder, with prices starting at around £190,000. The average asking price is approximately £380,000 which would be for a 3 bedroom home, whilst the average detached property price reaches roughly £750,000, which does include the larger homes available in this countryside hotspot.
Lettings range from 1 bedroom flats in the centre of Hook, through to larger semi-rural family properties, with rent levels to suit all budgets. The monthly rent for a 1 bedroom flat averages at around £900 per month, while the rent for four bedroom homes averages at £1,700 per month.
The majority of buyers moving into Hook are young families and commuters. Hook provides excellent commuter links via the mainline train station that serves London Waterloo in just under an hour, along with the M3 and M4 motorways which are very easily accessible.
Many also choose Hook for the local schooling, which is superb. Hook infants and primary school is very popular and a short walk from where ever you live in the village. Robert May’s secondary school in Odiham, which serves Hook, benefits from excellent Ofsted results and is also a major decision factor for those choosing to live in Hook.
For further information about Hook and the surrounding area, or to enquire about buying, selling or renting, please contact our local office:
