The firm is now owned by Andrew Crossley, grandson of Geoffrey Crossley who founded the company in 1926. He is confident that Crossley's will maintain their position as the leading family firm of independent Rochdale Estate Agents and Chartered Surveyors. The company was run by my grandfather and father with emphasis on a professional and personal service from a family firm, and these are still the basic foundations underlying all our business relationships.
Andrew's father, Keith Crossley, is still employed by the company as a consultant Chartered Surveyor.
The company is now in its 85th year of trading and looks forward to the challenges of the new century.
As a Chartered Surveyor, Andrew carries out mortgage valuations for Building Societies and Banks. He will also provide RICS Home Buyers' Valuations or Building Surveys for anyone who is thinking of purchasing a property. Andrew has established Crossley Commercial which has evolved into one of the towns leading specialists in commercial and industrial premises. He will give advice on property and business sales, development opportunities, rent reviews and commercial management. Please telephone him for an informal chat to discuss your requirements.
