Flashback to 1977
As Birmingham’s nightclubs were booming to the sound of the relatively new sound of Disco and the fashion in the streets was dominated by flairs, Robert Aston was setting out to establish an estate agency business in Moseley that would live beyond his own retirement. House prices are often commented on in today’s media, but what were the typical house prices back then?
The National Average UK House Price was £12,409 at the start of 1977 and had increased to £13,150 by the end of 1977. Just a few years later by the end of 1980 prices had almost doubled to £23,497!* An average family car would cost you that today!

"I want to thank you for all your efforts in this process and also for your efforts over the years in terms of rental of the flat. I felt comfortable leaving things in your hands and you have all been very professional and trust worthy. I would readily recommend the Robert Aston Company to anyone seeking such help"
