Former Reading player and manager Mick Gooding has launched a new estate agency in the town.
Gooding - a pundit at his old club’s games for BBC Radio Berkshire - has worked for numerous agencies around Reading over the past 20 years.
Now Gooding - who played nearly 400 games for Reading between 1989 and 1997 and went on to become a manager - has told local media that now is the right time to set up a new venture of his own.
“Our goal as a business is to care more than anyone else about delivering the best estate agency experience for our clients.
"By going the extra mile and exceeding our customers’ expectations, we hope to become one of the most well-respected and trusted agents in the area.
"Our strength as an estate agency is our comprehensive knowledge of the local area, years of property experience and traditional values of honesty and reliability.
"From your first thoughts of moving to picking up the keys to your new home, we will support you through every step of the process.”
