Just a few of the reasons why Crompton Estates is the best property partner for you.
1. Independent agency
As an independent agency we have no outside influence, so we can do things differently. We’re not part of a big chain, so we have a local focus, and we only deal with residential property. This independence means we can create bespoke marketing strategies tailored to your needs, rather than conforming to a corporate template. This personalised approach, combined with eye-catching marketing and sophisticated technology, guarantees your property will get noticed. And because our overheads are lower than some of our more traditional competitors, we can offer you very competitive fees.
2. Local expertise
We live, work and have raised families in London and the South East, and know the area like the back of our hand. Our extensive and personal knowledge of the local property market gives us the edge, allowing our experienced negotiators to agree the best possible price in the shortest possible time. Ours is a local businesses run by local people, who, quite simply, love their patch.
3. Experienced staff
We were established in 2007, but our directors have an average of more than 20 years’ experience. We have qualified and trained staff who work to The Property Ombudsman Scheme codes of conduct. That means that when we offer advice, it is well considered. And our staff is not paid on a commission basis, so we look for the best tenant for the property, not the first, and every one of us will look after your interests (not just one person looking after their own).

4. Strong brand
Our service is also our marketing. Crompton Estates has built a strong reputation for customer service and hands-on management and because of this we receive a huge number of referrals and recommendations. Our tenants and clients are also incredibly loyal. We have tenants and buyers on our books who look exclusively with Crompton Estates when looking for new property or home. Word-of-mouth and repeat business is what we're all about, and a lot of these will pay a premium in the knowledge that they will get an excellent service.
5. Award-winning agency
Our outstanding service across sales, lettings and property management come as standard at Crompton, so we’re very proud that they’ve earned us some top awards. Crompton Estates is the winner of 7 awards at the "Estate Agent of the Year Awards", including best in London and best in the UK.

7. Speed to market
The heads of all our property disciplines work together under one roof which means the person you are dealing directly with has immediate access to expert advice in specific areas. This means we don't waste valuable time – we can have your property fully marketed online within 48 hours of photographing your property.
8. Attention to detail
We'll pick out the details that make your property particularly appealing to tenants or buyers. Of course, we'll cover off all the practical things like the size of the bedrooms and the wonderful little garden out back. But we'll also tell them the little details which only a local would know, like where to get the best coffee on the way to work, the fabulous bakery with the amazing selection of artisan breads and where to find that open space for a morning jog (or leisurely walk). We'll include this sort of information in the marketing materials we produce for you.
9. Buyer database
We have lots of registered buyers and know their preferences, so there’s a potential market for your property from day one. As long-term specialists in the area we have strong relationships with those building property portfolios and know who is looking for the house or flat you are selling.
10. Customer service
We do the hard work for you, from managing viewings to liaising with solicitors, and we keep you updated in a friendly and active manner. Selling can be a complicated and frustrating process - it's just the way things are when you're dealing with lots of people and their most valuable asset. We'll be there with you from start to finish, from managing viewings to sorting out complicated chains. And our agents will give you honest advice on all the little niggly things, like the best local tradesmen to fix those small jobs around the house.
