Christopher Shaw Residential was founded in 2007 with an aim to offer an innovative range of estate agency and property services in Bournemouth and Poole.

The company founder, was Christopher Shaw himself, a local estate agent who decided to go it alone in the middle of major downturn in the property market, and whose aim was to improve, with the implemation of technology, the estate agency service that was being offered in the local area.

This aim has continued to this day and we are constantly striving to be at the forefront in our use of modern prop-tech advances, which benefits both our staff, and more importantly our customers.


We believe that people are the key to our business, and whilst supported by state of the art prop-tech we know that it is important for there to be great staff to help run it. We have a driven and focused team that want the best for their clients.

Each staff member has a complete dedication, experience and knowledge within their role and have been handpicked to run the departments mirroring the passion that the owner has for the business.

Location, Location, Location

Our Bournemouth town centre office is situated between the main high street and Richmond Hill which is the home of some of Bournemouth’s largest employers (Nationwide and Vitality).

All of our staff are based here, from the front-end negotiators, to the back end property management and finance.

We believe this central location puts us in a prime position to be able to showcase your property and ensure that we offer you another route to getting your property in front of quality tenants other than just through online property portals. It also means we well positioned to serve the entire area across Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch.


In 2018, the company expanded by merging with another local lettings agency, as the company continued to open itself up to new ideas, and thinking ahead of the game.

This helped put the company in its strongest ever position, and following the merger the company was able to affiliate itself with ARLA Propertymark, the industry’s gold standard in terms of codes of practice, and client money protection.

The company offers a complete spectrum of property services – lettings, property management and sales. Our investment in technology enables us to offer the service of a large scale estate agency but with an owner managed office, which enables us to offer a personal and bespoke service.

We are here to be your local property partners, and our office is always open for chat, or a coffee, and welcome any opportunity to assist you and your property requirements.
