About Shouler & Son

Auctioneers, Valuers, Land & Estate Agents with 170 years experience

An uncertain future for the farming industry in the 1840s, with mechanisation beginning to change old practices, was the climate in which William Shouler, then aged 21, announced that he was setting up business as Auctioneer and Appraiser in Woburn Sands. Three years later he left the area and established himself in his wife's home town of Melton Mowbray.

His great great great grandson Ben Shouler has been a partner since 2008 and today his duties include management of new and established clients as well as auctioneering and valuing of all effects that pass through the firms Auction Room in Melton Mowbray.

Working from Melton Mowbray, the partners & staff each work in a particular field of expertise whilst retaining a wide general knowledge across the profession.

"I just wanted to touch base with you, to say how delighted David is with the house in Oakham. It already looks lovely, immaculate, and he’s more settled (already), than I’ve ever seen him. Thank you for making the whole process so easy and uncomplicated. I have worked in estate agency and your customer care and service has made me realise why I loved it!"
