Area Insights

Paton & Co community insights on where you live, or might like to live…

At Paton & Co we want to share our personal area knowledge with potential buyers. We know this enables buyers to see not just the property we are selling but also the home and lifestyle that could be theirs.

We research and understand every location we sell in, but no one understands an area better than the person already living there, so we’ll take the time to discuss the location with our vendors when bringing their property to market. This way, we can add local homeowner insights to our own area insights.

Discover everything from walks and attractions, to restaurants, shops and local suppliers. We also try to share local events and recommendations for tradesmen and professional services from Paton & Co customers past and present. It is our intention that these pages will be constantly changing and evolving to ensure we provide information that we think is useful and relevant.
