You could never accuse me of standing still in business! Since being propelled skywards from a metaphorical ejector seat in 2015, I’ve had to learn new things. Old dogs aren’t supposed to be able to do that – but this one has had to.

Get Pro Copy was set up four years ago as a B2B writing service, but morphed into a channel for GCSE marking, educational consultancy, web design and social media marketing. Anything really to pay an expensive addition – to gadgets and tech.

Now a new direction has been taken with Nest in Norfolk.


A year ago, someone locally phoned me as I’d been recommended to them to sell their property through a previous client of Farrell Walton. I politely explained I didn’t do that any longer, but recommended another agency locally who I admire and respect.

Thought little of it until another former client whose house we sold in Caister, rang me, asking to value his property. Again I explained I didn’t do that and passed on the company I’d recommended before.

Hindsight though is a wonderful thing and I realised in a Homer Simpson epiphany that if two people could find me online and chat with me about property selling, I was a bit daft to have jacked Farrell Walton in after 9 months.

Cue, brainwave.

I knew one estate agency (in Essex) who I’d worked with for four years – designing his websites, writing his property stories and connecting with on Facebook and What’s App.

I seized the day and asked Nick without delay whether he’d allow me to set up Nest in Norfolk under the successful umbrella of Nest in Essex.

Because Nick runs the company well with his team, and we get on, he didn’t have to toddle off to directors to seek approval. Like me, he is a good judge of propositions and as I was rising from my knees after the what’s app proposal he said yes.

The rest, as they say, is history.

What this doesn’t mean though is that Get Pro Copy Ltd collects dust like Miss Havisham’s cake in the corner. The future is bright for both businesses.

But – if you want engaging copywriting, affordable web design, social media marketing or a house valuing for sale or rent in Norfolk or Suffolk, contact me.

Nest in Norfolk has a full team supporting me at the Rayleigh HQ, properties are professionally photographed by Matthew Clarke and they are marketed on Rightmove, On the Market, Nest in Norfolk and Nest in Essex’s websites and active social media channels.

There’s no upfront fees, no sale no fee and zero week contracts – if you want try one of the many good estate agents in Great Yarmouth, Gorleston, Lowestoft, that’s fine.

I know I’m biased though and I would say try us as there’s zero risk and I think you’ll find we are different.

Usual CTA – mobile number is 07462923476 – if you want to discuss websites or property.
