Tom Selwood

Managing Director

Tom graduated with a degree in Economics from University of East Anglia prior to qualifying as a Chartered Accountant with PwC in 2003. With a wealth of experience in both mergers and acquisitions and commercial finance, he has worked all over the world leading complex negotiations on high value contracts and projects.


His vision for Principled Property Partners came about following his own experiences, and associated frustrations, when attempting to move house. With property transactions regularly being cited as the single most stressful experience a person will encounter, Tom is determined to provide a friendly, ethical and truly impartial service which, in addition to de-stressing matters, ensures value is protected at all times.


Tom is married with two children and enjoys kayaking, cycling and running. His chosen charity for PPP Giving is the Salvation Army, as he is a member of his local Salvation Army Church.

A commercial airline pilot for over 20 years, Rebecca (Bex) has always had a love of property and has an outstanding knowledge of the Surrey market.

Pragmatic yet caring, she has supported many individuals in their search for a new property and is keenly aware of the stresses involved in moving and just how crucial it is to have solid, impartial input in to the process in order to ‘get it right’.

Bex is married with two children and lives just outside Dorking. She enjoys music and being outside.

Her chosen charity for PPP Giving  is the International Justice Mission, a charity whose aim is to help end modern day slavery.


Chris Taylor

Strategy and Marketing Director

  • Grey LinkedIn Icon

Chris is a husband, father and an entrepreneur with an intense passion for inspiring business with a people centric purpose. With a range of experience across a variety of industries, primarily within the UK and US, Chris persistently pursues his ambition to encourage businesses to always give more value than they take.


Shared values and a want for ethical business practice made Tom’s vision for Principled Property Partners particularly aligned to this ambition.


Having experienced a lack of empathy and support for his mother from existing professional services when attempting to sell their family home at a young age, the need for a fair and people centric service was apparent. Years later, having seen first-hand within the property market the lack of a suitable means of ensuring fair value rather than ‘commission at all costs’, the need for a property transaction partner with a genuine desire to help and support others was obvious.

Chris has chosen National Association for Children of Alcoholics to support through our PPP Giving commitment.
