Tom has always had a strong desire to set up a real estate consultancy in his own image – based on passion, innovation and creativity. He’s driven by the fact that the buck stops with him and that his clients’ objectives are so aligned with his own. Tom has known his business partner, Philip Hunter, for over twenty-seven years and the trust between them is a key foundation for their business.
He is a specialist in the Thames Valley office market, acting for landlords, developers, investors and corporate occupiers. Tom prides himself on seeking innovative solutions to give his clients the edge in whatever they are trying to achieve.
Tom’s great escape from work are his wife and two kids, and family in Lincolnshire and Bath. He’s an outdoor person who loves skiing, Cornish holidays and long walks with his Spaniel.
Philip co-founded Hatch Real Estate in January 2021 with Tom Fletcher, who he previously worked with at Lambert Smith Hampton for 18 years.
He has worked as a commercial property agent in the Thames Valley for 20 years, building up a wealth of experience acting for a wide range of clients, including pension funds, property companies and private individuals.
His primary focus is on purchase, sale and leasing of industrial & logistics property, development land transactions across sectors, as well as sale and acquisition of investment opportunities.
Philip loves skiing with his wife and two young children, and fears that it isn’t long now until the little ones are outpacing him!
To help unwind, he enjoys walks with their Labrador (whatever the weather), or getting out on the road bike (mainly if good weather…).
Charlie joined Hatch in December 2021 after previously working with Tom and Philip at Lambert Smith Hampton. Charlie has worked in the Thames Valley office market for over 8 years, with experience along the M4 corridor from Chiswick to Newbury.

Aside from property, Charlie is a keen tennis player and active 1st team member for Reading’s Caversham Tennis Club. His other passions include fitness, wellbeing and traveling.
