Adrian Dunford | Principal

Adrian’s passion for property saw him purchasing his first home at the age of just 18, catapulting him into a market that would, over the years, become his lifeblood. His first taste of agency life started in Parkstone, where he ran an estate agency that quickly grew to three offices. With a keen interest in finance, he became an Independent Financial Advisor for over 25 years, but it seems the pull of property was hard to resist; in 2008 Adrian took over the helm of Tailor Made, taking his family’s business into a new and exciting era. Born and bred in the local area, Adrian’s intimate knowledge of Sandbanks and beyond is second to none; this, coupled with his detailed property knowledge and financial prowess, makes Adrian an incredibly astute and agile property expert.
