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 offers lettings, property management and sales.

Our investment in technology enables us to offer the service of a large-scale estate agency but with a more flexible outlook which enables us to offer a personal and bespoke service.


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 owners have 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 and valuers, to back-end property management and finance.

We believe our 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 buyers or tenants other than just through online property portals. It also means we are 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. 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 letting industry’s gold standard in terms of codes of practice, and client money protection.

Since then, we are proud to have attained several industry accreditations which help us ensure that our service is the best it can possibly be. We are also members of NAEA Propertymark which means we meet higher industry standards than the law demands and strictly adhere to their regulations, ensuring that we only provide a first-class service and offer you the best possible advice. We are also members of the Property Redress Scheme who provide impartial ruling on complaints. Please click here for more information. Click here for further information.

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.
