Press release June 2018

Henry Rowe, Director at Kevin Henry Estate Agents, announces retirement

Kevin Henry Estate Agents, part of Sharman Quinney, announces that director Henry Rowe will be retiring from his role in September 2018.  Henry’s decision to retire will bring to a close a long and prosperous career of 30 years at the helm of Kevin Henry, one which has seen the company grow into the most successful estate agency business in the Saffron Walden area.

Estate agency has always been in Henry’s DNA, being the son of the late Ted Rowe, former senior partner of Watsons Estate Agents and, in 1988, Henry formed Kevin Henry with Kevin Moll.  With dedication to great service and results, a passion for the trade and a love and extensive knowledge of the local area, the business thrived. Under their tenure, the business has gone from strength to strength and Henry’s retirement comes almost 30 years to the day that Kevin Henry commenced trading, and two years since becoming part of Sharman Quinney.  The acquisition by Sharman Quinney was a progressive move, making Kevin Henry part of a stronger, larger group, giving them access to an unrivalled depth of experience and allowing the business to flourish further. Although retiring, Henry’s connection with the company continues in the form of a part-time consultancy role, with Kevin Moll still director alongside a 16-strong team to ensure consistency for customers and the same level of service.


“It has been an exciting and very rewarding 30 years and I am delighted to leave the company in such good health,” says Henry Rowe.  “I wish my long term business partner, Kevin Moll, branch manager Sue Johns, and the rest of the Kevin Henry team, ably supported by Sharman Quinney, much success for the future.  I am pleased that I have been offered the opportunity to continue my association with Kevin Henry as a consultant, and I look forward to keeping in touch with valued clients over the coming years.”

“On behalf of everyone at Kevin Henry and Sharman Quinney, I would like to commend Henry on his fantastic career and outstanding contribution and wish him a long and happy retirement,” says Mike Sharman, managing director at Sharman Quinney.  “Henry’s years of dedication to the company have seen it grow into one of the best agents in the region, consistently selling more houses each year than any other local agent in the Saffron Walden area. The Kevin Henry name has a reputation for excellence, and it is our intention to capitalise on this and its market leading credentials.”
