Ashtons is an independent Estate Agency practice, founded over 30 years ago. The group now provides first class estate agency services in Harpenden, Welwyn Garden City and St.Albans. Ashtons strive to cater for specific needs, nothing is classed as standard nor left to chance. All employees undergo a six-week bespoke training programme when joining Ashtons. This includes a one-to-one induction with their head of people, as well as structured personal training with their line manager. The programme includes a heavy focus on the company culture and ambition, notably understanding their ambition of being the number one sales and lettings agent in Hertfordshire. Three core principles are in place at Ashtons for this ambition to become a reality: always be first, create extraordinary relationships and to never be forgotten. Employees strive to meet these principles everyday. As well as regular company team nights out to reward strong performance, Ashtons also gift fully paid special days out to popular sporting events on an ad-hoc prize-draw basis. The most popular unique event is the 'Annual Anniversary Dinner' which is hosted by the managing director, for all employees who have completed ten or more years' service. To give something back to the local community, all members of the team are entitled to two fully-paid days off work a year to volunteer with local charities, help out their local school or to fund-raise for personal charitable ventures.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
