John Freeman of The One Stop Property Shop is a Multi Skilled tradesman with more than 33 years of experience within the construction industry helping Homeowners and Business owners with all their property needs.
Before starting a Property Maintenance Refurbishment company, I was an Electrical Mechanical Engineer, carrying out large electrical installations, predominantly within the Manufacturing & Industrial sectors, providing power distribution systems for major plant & machinery, from sheet metal fabrication plants, timber mills, & car plants to newspaper presses, printing factories, & food processing plants.
The variety of work these days is most enjoyable, from complete refurbishment of entire properties to refreshing a kitchen or bathroom, I carry out 99% of the work by myself with the greatest attention to detail, I am a TrustMark Approved Tradesman for Electrical, Plumbing, Carpentry, Joinery & General Building.
Whilst works projects are generally booked well in advance, I still find time to fit in the smaller jobs, like hanging pictures (some of which are collectors’ items), TV’s, curtain rails, Blinds, shelving, flat pack furniture, and much much more, hence the name, The One Stop Property Shop.
The reason I would like to join the Brentwood Chamber of Commerce is I believe I have a lot to offer its members by way of quality advice, and workmanship both in their homes and workplaces.
The Rotary Club of Brentwood was established in 1932 and is a Registered Charity (No 1061479). The Rotary Organisation worldwide has over 1.2 million members.
Our Club raises funds through various projects during the year such as Christmas Collections (Santa and Sleigh); a Concert, monthly Quizzes, a Charity Golf Day, to name some.
The funds are used to arrange events such as trips to Legoland and the Pantomime for children with special needs, a day-out to the coast for elderly people. Funds are also used to help street kids in Uganda and disadvantaged school pupils in Uganda – the Uganda projects we do in conjunction with our sister Rotary Club in Denmark and a Uganda Rotary Club in Kampala. Funds are also streamed to help many other charitiess such as St Francis and Little Havens Hospices, Shelter Box etc etc.
Our Club tries very hard to work with organisation and schools in the local community.
The OBJECT OF ROTARY is: to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis for worthy enterprise and, in particular, to encourage and foster:
1/. The development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
2/. High ethical standards in business and professions; the recognition of all useful occupations; and the dignifying of each Rotarian’s occupations an opportunity to serve society;
3/.The application of ideal of service in each Rotarian’s personal, business and community life;
4/. The advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peace through world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.
Reasons for joining the Chamber
- Make some new contacts which might result in new members or ‘Friends of Rotary’ (people who help us with our projects but are not members)
- Provide a forum for us to advertise our forthcoming events
- Better awareness of what is going on in Brentwood which might help the Club in progressing some of its activities

Thomas Oliver is a Financial Services company based in Goffs Oak, Herts though I work in Shenfield.
I joined the team there as a self-employed adviser in 2018 and have been offering mortgage and protection advice to a wide range of clients in Brentwood and other areas of Essex and north London. Previously I was an adviser based in Enfield Town.
Everyone is an individual and I approach them and their circumstances that way. No advice is ever the same as each is tailored to the clients needs. I deal with all aspects of mortgages and protection needs and I treat everyone the way I want to be treated so service is a main part of my role.
I provide no obligation meetings at the clients convenience so after work and at their home, if they wish.
