About Us


We are the Premier Independent Estate Agents with the performance that counts. Our 40 years of experience, enthusiasm and unrivalled local knowledge, has made us Number 1 agent for agreeing more home sales than any other agent in our area.  We have an excellent reputation for selling and letting all sizes and types of coastal and country homes. We will be passionate about your move and offer the highest level of service and care. 

Our successful, proven track record, and honest professional approach, is backed by realistic valuations and a comprehensive marketing package.  This includes advertising all our properties on the major property portals, including Rightmove, Primelocation and Zoopla and of course, our own website.  We only use professionally printed sales details which include colour photography and a floor plan and our viewings are always accompanied. We also handle commercial property and manage apartment blocks.

We are members of the National Association of Estate Agents and the Property Ombudsman Scheme and in our last online survey, we were a 100% recommended.  We had a rating of 10/10 for our professional approach, our knowledge and our friendly and helpful staff. 

We cover the coastal locations, from Lyme Regis, through Seaton and Beer to Sidmouth and all the villages and towns inland, including Honiton, Colyton and Axminster.  Our experienced and trained staff, led by our Managing Director Brian Wapshott, monitor all aspects of the sales transaction and we are always here to help. 

If you are thinking about selling or renting your home, then we would be delighted to give you a pre-sale assessment and explain our marketing package to you.  However, if you are about to purchase a new home, we will show you some of our superb range of properties for sale and explain the many advantages of living in our area of Devon.  We would love to hear from you.
