Thomas Morris was established in 1991 at a small office in Eaton Ford, a suburb of St Neots in Cambridgeshire.
Within 2 years the company had opened a second office branch in the market town of Ramsey where they quickly established themselves as the area's leading agent.
1996 saw them amalgamate with Homequest, a respected estate agent with offices in both Huntingdon and St Ives. The company now had four strategically located branches in Old Huntingdonshire and re-located the St Neots operation to arguably the most prominent position in the town.
After a brief period of consolidation, the company made its first move out of Cambridgeshire and set up a new office in Biggleswade, Bedfordshire during 1998. It was in this year that they acquired an agency in Sawtry, a village to the north of Huntingdon.
A year later the partnership bought two offices from Halifax Property Services. One in St Ives, which they converted to a 'mortgage shop' (mortgages and other Financial Services are available through our association with Partners Financial) and the other in Royston, Hertfordshire. This remains their most southerly branch providing access to numerous buyers to the benefit of all offices.

In 2000 the company was nominated as one of the top six estate agents in the UK and were also awarded the 'Rising Star' accolade in recognition of their progressive approach to estate agency. In March 2001, Mid Anglia Surveyors was established offering clients a range of survey facilities across the region.
At the end of 2001, Thomas Morris achieved the ultimate accolade for any estate agent - by winning the much coveted Cendant Cup and the title of “Best independent estate agent in the UK”.

2002 saw the company nominated for the "Employer of the Year" award. In addition they were awarded the "Top Referral Agent" award and the national "P.R. and Marketing Award" from the Homesale Network.
During 2003, T.M. Training and Development was established to provide specialist training to other estate agents throughout the country. During the past seven years, the company has provided training and consultancy support to hundreds of the industry's leading players.
The year culminated in yet another national award - this time for the Fine & Country department which specialises in the marketing of prestigious and unusual homes and is based at Park Lane, London.
