Hi, I’m Steve, the In House founder and owner. I am a graduate of The Goldman Sachs Small Business Programme and a true local of this area.

In 2007, after working as a regional director for the two largest estate agency chains in the UK, research and surveys told me that house sellers in this country wanted something better from an agent; Straight talking honest advice, coupled with clear, jargon-free, non-cliche marketing, to find the best buyer at the highest price and in a timescale to suit them, the seller……so In House was born.

Since then we’ve helped thousands of clients move on with their lives in every way, winning many national awards and hundreds of positive reviews along the way.

After establishing ourselves as Wallingford’s top selling agent, we opened a second branch in Didcot’s busy Orchard Centre which quickly gained market share and helped earn us a reputation as the fastest growing, most dynamic and recognisable agent in the area.

So how have we done it? Well, buyers love the way we make our properties look and sound, sellers love our honest, straight talking advice and pricing and our staff, who are all local and full-time, are passionate about property, people and the details of both.

Feel free to call any of the team on………

Didcot: 01235 355999

Wallingford: 01491 839999

Feel free to take virtual tour of our offices or even better pop in in person we would love to meet you.

We're here from valuation to the hand over keys. Whether you need a cleaner, solicitor, or just a chat, we will be what you need, when you need it. That's our promise to you.

Meet the team


Steve Puddifoot

Hi, I’m Steve. The only talent I openly boast about is recruitment. I have managed to attract this bunch of amazing professionals and they haven’t even tried to escape. I love golf (but it doesn’t love me back) I also like eating and drinking, exercise and motorbikes.


Philip Hamp
Manager, Wallingford

Hi, I’m Philip, I run the flagship Wallingford office and I am the company’s longest serving member! The reason I have stayed so long is that being privately owned and independent, the company has allowed me to get on with the important part of the job which is the people, not the box-ticking bureaucracy you can often get from a larger corporate.


Jamie Prescott
Manager, Orchard centre

Hi, I’m Jamie and I run the Orchard Centre office. A bit like my career, Didcot has grown quickly in the last six years. Both born and bred here, I really enjoy working with such a varied mix of first-time buyers, up-sizers, down-sizers and investment buyers. I play a lot of football where my 6’5” frame comes in handy in Goal.


Cat Cray
Systems Manager

Hi, I'm Cat and I am the company Systems Manager. Every successful company needs rules, regulations and systems so it's me that keeps it all compliant and running smoothly. The team all seem happy to follow the procedures I put in place, however I wonder if this is because I also make sure everyone is paid on time! I love ice skating and interior design. I'm also quite good at shopping!


Luke Crawshaw
Sales Agent

Hi, I'm Luke and I love working in the busy Orchard Centre office. The In House training programme has given me the confidence to identify just what buyers are looking for. I get a real buzz out of fitting the right house to the right buyer! I love cricket and am captain of my local team. It’s not easy to catch me out though as I have an encyclopaedic knowledge of all In House properties. I am still working on the jokes side of things!


Jonathan Pepper
In House Lettings Manager

Hi I’m Jon and I have been working in property management for most of my career. I am so pleased that I chose In House, being privately owned and independent allows me to tailor my time and service to landlords and tenants according to their individual needs, which they all seem to like. I sometimes wonder why, but at weekends I volunteer to run a local kids football team.


Diane Kruczko
Sales Agent

Hi I’m Diane. Working from the Wallingford office allows me to enjoy an interesting mix of town houses and country cottages. But it’s the people of both that I enjoy most. Having lived in these surrounding villages all of my life I am well equipped to help buyers with information about anything from the best walk over the Thames and up the clumps to when they are most likely to mark down the avocados in the Benson Co-op.
