About Us

In 1945 Mr O'Donnell and Mr Hawthorn opened their first Estate Agency office in Hornchurch near to the Old Bus Station in Hornchurch Road.

O'Donnell & Hawthorn Estate Agents were born.

Business prospered as Rainham and Hornchurch found its feet after nearly six years of war. Mr O'Donnell was kept busy as returning soldiers flooded back into society and Britain returned to peacetime and normality.

After a few years Mr Hawthorn left the partnership and Mr O'Donnell moved the rapidly expanding practice of O'Donnell & Hawthorn Estate Agents to new larger premises at 14 Broadway, Rainham.

O'Donnell & Hawthorn Estate Agents, through hard work and good customer care, became Rainham's leading Estate Agency selling more property in the area than any other estate agency.

O'Donnell & Hawthorn Estate Agency's expansion continued until 1999 when PATTERSON HAWKE Estate Agents of Hornchurch acquired O'Donnell & Hawthorn and the two successful practices merged to form PATTERSON HAWTHORN Estate Agents.

In May 2002, PATTERSON HAWTHORN opened their first Thurrock Office at 105 Daiglen Drive, South Ockendon, RM15 5EH, subsequently, under the management of Kevin Terry this branch quickly came to dominate the local area of South Ockendon and Aveley invariably selling more properties than other local estate agencies.

In order to better deal with the expanding business PATTERSON HAWTHORN was incorporated in March 2007 to form PATTERSON HAWTHORN Ltd. The following year the newly formed company, having outgrown it's cramped premises near the clock tower in Rainham, acquired a new larger premises and soon moved to their present location at 22 Upminster Road South, Rainham, RM13 9YX

Through careful management and hard work from a dedicated staff, PATTERSON HAWTHORN sailed through the choppy waters of the 2008 downturn.

In 2010, Nigel Patterson's daughter, Nicola joined PATTERSON HAWTHORN Ltd after forging her own success in the estate agency business and quickly became PATTERSON HAWTHORN's most successful Valuer breaking all previous records and today Manages the company's Rainham Office. Under the management of Nicola Patterson, PATTERSON HAWTHORN Rainham have maintained the tradition of being Rainham's leading Estate Agency with consistently more properties sold and for sale annually than any other estate agency branch office.

Kevin Terry after dependable and record breaking success levels became PATTERSON HAWTHORN's Senior Manager, and together with Nicola Patterson they form the management team that is the company's backbone.
