Meet the Team

Our Colchester Sales Team

John Price

John Price - Director

John has lived in Colchester for 25 years and has over 33 year’s agency experience. As one of the founders of the business John is still extremely passionate about property and looks after the sales progression process ensuring that your property moves to completion in the shortest time possible without fuss.

John has built up a good relationship with many solicitors and surveyors and is very meticulous in his work ensuring no stone remains unturned. This part of the sales process sometimes goes unnoticed but at Elms Price we see this as one of the key areas we invest time in ensuring all our clients are kept up to date every step of the way until the keys are handed over.

John is a keen car enthusiast and you can normally find him on his days off tinkering with his beloved TVR.


Andrew Mcloughlin

Andrew Mcloughlin - Director

Andrew has been with Elms Price for over 20 years now and also a director of the business. At the forefront of our sales team he will normally be the first person you come into contact with at Elms Price.

Andrew has over 27 year’s agency experience and learnt his trade at independent Edward Charles and then corporate giant Douglas Allen before joining Elms Price in 1994. Andrew enjoys the personal approach that working for an independent agency brings and has an extremely hard work ethic coupled with a friendly persona and somewhat unique memory.

Andrew is well thought of in the industry, his local knowledge is unrivalled and knack for matching applicants with the right property is invaluable whether you’re buying or selling through Elms Price.

When Andrew isn’t riding his vintage Lambretta he is normally found supporting his two sons at the side of a football pitch or listening to his impressive library of music.
