Welcome to McGovern & Co

McGovern & Co is a unique, independent Chelmsford based Estate Agent offering a bespoke and personal service like no other. 

Each client is treated as an individual and we strongly believe in operating under the mantra that we value people and property and in doing so keep that as our focus on a daily basis.

The business was co-founded by Brian McGovern who sadly passed away in March 2022. He had been selling property locally for over 30 years, was a Chelmsford resident since he was a child and therefore offered a wealth of experience and local knowledge. 

Brian was awarded a nomination for the Pride Of Essex Award and a Certificate of Recognition from the Mayor of Chelmsford with his charity work with Cool to be Kind (www.c2bk.co.uk), which he co-founded in 2015. 

Brian regularly featured in local and national media including BBC news, ITV news and Essex Live. He also had a regular slot on Chelmsford Community Radio discussing Chelmsford­ based topics including the local property market.

The team are dedicated to honouring the ethos on which the business was founded and recognise the part that Brian has played in giving the business the strong foundation that it operates on today.


Customer Testimonials

We cannot thank Trefor and Louise enough for handling the sale of our house. Their friendly and efficient attitude, and expert knowledge helped us through the whole process.

We were real people to them not just numbers in a book, and they were always available to discuss and explain the sales process and give updates.

We wish them every success. They certainly deserve it.

Gavin Ives & Rebecca Hastings – January 2023

We have sold two properties this year and Trefor Davies at McGovern & Co handled them both.
Although neither were straightforward and were in different sectors of the market, Trefor dealt with them very efficiently and both sales went very smoothly and at prices that were at the upper end of expectation.
A very professional and supportive approach.
Julian Hance – January 2023
