    Alan Hawkins Estate Agents is a family owned and run independent Estate Agency operating from our dedicated Royal Wootton Bassett High Street office, where we have been successfully selling residential property since our launch in 1998.

  • paragraph

    Alan himself, had vast experience in the local market before his passing in 2015 having, since 1983, managed two estate agent offices in the town, furthermore, before arriving in Royal Wootton Bassett had built up over 10 years' experience in Swindon. Alan remains in our hearts and souls every single day and this gives us the continued passion, drive and desire to continue being the town's leading agent. Our newly re-designed company logo, incorporating the poppy, has been designed with Alan in mind and our deep roots within the town.

  • paragraph

    The family team is made up by Janet, Alan's wife and four sons being co-directors. The team is further complimented by the support of Velda and Margaret in the sales team and Geraldine and Katy in the lettings.

    Paul joined in 2002, having been in a sales related environment for the previous 10 years, and more latterly Chris Hawkins who joined in 2014 having spent previous years in retail management.

    Stephen and Kevin both jointly run from the same High Street premises, our Residential Lettings Department, launched in the summer of 2005 and growing in strength year on year.

    As a family and close knit business, our clients are guaranteed service consistency on a personal basis without the concerns of staff turnover or having to deal with staff with whom they are unfamiliar. Similarly, our commitment to our customers is paramount in every way, where honesty and trust is an integral part of our service.

    Steve Hawkins (Director Lettings)
    I was born in Royal Wootton Bassett before moving to Swindon for the majority of my life. Having left School I went straight into an engineering apprenticeship for Lister Petter, before working for a Mortgage broker firm. From here I joined Nationwide Building Society and was a Mortgage Underwriter for 10 years. Alan Hawkins Estate Agents expanded in 2005, lead initially by myself, to incorporate a residential lettings side of the business. Since then we have grown from strength to strength, dominating the rental market within our market town and surrounding villages. When i'm not at work, I like to fit my time around my family. To wind down I like to get out and run, play competitive golf and squash and get out on the mountain bike on the Ridgeway and at the bike parks around Wales

    Testimonials from Landlords

    • Landlord Testimonial

      A breath of fresh air
      K.Fletcher.........
      A breath of fresh air in comparison with previous experiences with other estate agents! It was great to experience the personal touch provided by this professional, family-run estate agent. Kevin provided an honest and informative viewing. There was no pressure to make a decision about the property, but he ensured that the process ran quickly and smoothly once a decision had been made. He followed through on all action points, responded promptly to all email queries and even supplied advice and a touch of humour on 'above and beyond' situations such as recommending a local TV engineer! Friendly, patient and not in the least patronising or pushy. The emergency number system works well, too. I can't recommend Alan Hawkins Estate Agents highly enough and would definitely rent a property from them again.
    • Landlord Testimonial

      They know their stuff,
      100% recommend!
      D.King......
      Steve and Kevin are the perfect combination of friendly, supportive and professional. They know their stuff, they did what they said they would do (unlike other agents in the past), they really did make a change of Tenants run smoothy. Thanks guys. 100% recommend and will definitely use again.

      Our property has never been vacant
      A Creighton....
      Landlords, living overseas - Stephen provides very good communication and ensures we always receive rent on time. In 7 years with Alan Hawkins, our property has never been vacant for more than a week or two, and I'm sure we owe that largely to their team.
