We do. 100s of properties are added everyday - these are some of the ways Austin Gray can make your property stand out from the crowd;


    PREMIUM LISTING

    Your property grabs more attention with larger images, a bigger listing and more pictures on display.


    FEATURED PROPERTY

    Your property listing appears at the top of the search results page and again as a standard listing - twice the visibility!

    Scrolling through Rightmove you'll notice that many agents aren't making the most of what Rightmove has to offer and as a result, aren't offering you the best possible service. We believe that in such a competitive market it is vital that your agent offers you the best tools available to help you sell your home. The premium service we provide at Austin Gray gives you that opportunity.

    Graham Farthing, Residential Partner

    Graham has been the Residential Partner at Austin Gray for 11 years, having only worked for two other high profile independent agents during his 28 year career in Estate Agency.

    " I love my work ! there is nothing more satisfying than being able to help a client move forward in their life no matter what the reason or circumstance. I would like to think that I have experienced most situations in my work, although now and again something happens that I have not encountered before which keeps me on my toes ! "

    " I am very passionate about the business we are in, and the service that we all provide to both our buyers and sellers. We hear all too often people complaining about how they have been treated by an agent, which is frustrating because not all agents are the same. We will always treat people as we would expect to be treated ourselves "

    Sharon Randle

    Sharon has worked at Austin Gray for 8 years, having previously worked at another local independent for a number of years. She brings with her, her own distinctive style and personality, which is loved by all those who come into contact with her.

    " My day consists of liaising with our buyers and sellers, in all aspects of their move. What I particularly like is the building of a rapport with buyers, by getting to know what they are really looking for, and matching them to their new home. I really enjoy the time that I spend with clients whilst out on viewings, in an informal and relaxed atmosphere."

    "The best part of working for a local agent is that so much of our work comes from people who have previously bought through us, or have been recommended to us "

    Zach Funnell, Negotiator

    After leaving full time education I very quickly identified the industry I wished to work in due to my passion for property and interest in meeting new people.

    Firstly working within a lettings environment where I enjoyed the day to day challenges and targets that had to be met and helping people find a home, this lead me to my next challenge as a negotiator with Austin Gray. The transition to residential sales has been both interesting and stimulating and I am looking forward to a future in the property business working with an experienced, dynamic and proactive team.

    I joined Austin Gray having spent 7 years working for another local independent agent within the City. I have my own individual style and a particular eye for detail and customer service. It is an absolute pleasure to have joined a professional, diverse, dynamic and friendly team which has enabled me to maintain the high standards and smooth running of the office.

    Job satisfaction is important and the experience, skill sets and new ideas I have brought to Austin Gray have all been welcomed and embraced by my colleagues.

    Wendy Daykin

    A yearning to live by the sea has taken me from Islington to Brighton, where I have lived with my family and mini Dachshund, Lego for the past 5 years, because of my passion for houses I have reinvented my skill base to work in the Estate Agency world, and I love it.

    There is nothing more satisfying than helping people find their dream home. Previously in London for over 20 years I worked for some of the biggest brands on the high street and in the corporate world. Whether styling a meticulous studio shoot, where the devil is in the detail to organising street castings and finding locations for a short film.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      Graham has been the one steady hand throughout
      'Graham has been the one steady hand throughout the whole moving process - he was more than happy to step in to help out and provide sage advice on anything. He had made the whole process more bearable than what could have been a very stressful experience. Furthermore, he was able to provide me with a more reflective sale price with confidence and sold at the asking price. Highly recommend him to anyone for a honest and efficient service.' Owen 29th Oct 2016
    • Seller Testimonial

      They were fantastically supportive
      Austin Gray are true experts in their field. They promptly organised an open day for the sale of our house on a Saturday and we had secured an offer for the full asking price by the following Monday. They were fantastically supportive and competently managed mine and the Buyer's expectations with open and honest communication. Graham's grounded advice and realistic approach enabled us to attract the right buyers and to sell our house for the right price. I would definitely recommend them to anyone selling or looking to buy in the Seven Dials area. Jo MAY 2016
    • Seller Testimonial

      we had no hesitation in asking Austin Gray
      "When we decided to sell our property, we had no hesitation in asking Austin Gray to market it as we had bought the house through them and at the time had been very impressed with the service we had received. Once again, we found Austin Gray to be both professional and efficient in the handling of the sale. Graham Farthing went above and beyond what we would have expected from an agent in terms of the service he provided and it is this level of commitment from both him and his staff that make Austin Gray stand out from other agencies. Thank you Graham and team." Stephanie August 2015
    • Seller Testimonial

      Austin Gray earned their fee several times over!
      I would thoroughly recommend Austin Gray. Having dealt with our recent sale and purchase, Graham and the team kept the chain moving almost single-handedly, going above and beyond what we expected from an estate agent. The chain had several ups and downs but an early reassurance that I didn't need to worry until Graham said I had something to worry about was absolutely true, and although I tried to have a worry on a couple of occasions it really wasn't necessary as all the hurdles were professionally navigated and we successfully completed on an unmoveable deadline. Communication was excellent and at all stages I knew exactly where we were and what would happen next. Another person in the chain commented that they had paid their estate agent an awful lot to show three sets of people round their flat; I can say wholeheartedly that Austin Gray earned their fee several times over! Best wishes Shona January 2015
    • Seller Testimonial

      We would definitely use this agency again
      We were extremely happy with all aspects of Austin Grays professionalism and attention to detail throughout the sale of our home. The continuity of feedback and handling of both buyers and sellers requirements was first rate. We would definitely use this agency again and believe we benefitted from them being an independent who have great local knowledge and matched potential buyers of the property perfectly. Best wishes Chris and Louise  FERUARY 2015
    • Seller Testimonial

      total confidence in their ability 
      In December 2015, Austin Gray managed on my behalf the complicated sale off an investment property. For personal reasons I was unable to provide them with any support but they quietly and efficiently guided the whole process through to a successful completion. I have had seven years' experience with Austin Gray during which time I have bought and sold a number of properties through their Estate Agent office. I have maintained this relationship because I have total confidence in their ability to provide a consistent, professional approach from the initial marketing through to conveyance. If, like me, you seek a business minded, efficient agency to work on your behalf and to achieve the best results possible in today's market, then I recommend Austin Gray. They will always provide you with a complete, professional and caring service. Lilian Whelan 31/12/15
    • Seller Testimonial

      if only my firm had more properties to sell
      Dear Nicky Thank you for your letter of 21st October. I would have no hesitation in providing a testimonial for Austin Gray - it has been a real pleasure working with you all from start to finish. Your firm was able to provide a RICS valuation of the property for the charities, your colleagues were able to take care of all aspects of the property which we might ordinarily have handled ourselves had we been more local - including sourcing, instructing and supervising cleaners and house clearers and your firm was able to keep me and the 6 charities informed of progress in a most helpful manner. There were a couple of moments where there was the potential for things to become tricky but your helpful, thorough communication always kept things on track. If only my firm had more properties to sell in Brighton... With kind regards David Lunn Associate Solicitor - Private Client Department TWM Solicitors LLP 30th October 2015

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      They didn't waste our time with unsuitable buyers
      Austin Gray made the whole process of buying and selling straightforward. They have clear and sensible guidance at each stage and it went forward pretty much without any problems. The team for our sale treated our home and time with respect and got on the job with super-quick efficiency. We had 4 strong offers within one day of being on the market. They didn't waste our time with unsuitable buyers. Graham worked tirelessly for the two transactions to go smoothly. In particular, managing 3 sets of solicitors - and always with a smile. In short, a highly professional, experienced team who were a pleasure to deal with. Kay 20th Sept 2016
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Hope we have more chance to do business
      Dear Nicky, Thanks very much for your kindly letter for the completion. Yes, it is so blessed and appreciated for your great recommendation of this property. And it is really very helpful of you and feel so thankful for all your assistance for the research and checking of the property, as I am in oversea. Without your great help, I am afraid that the transaction would not be so smooth. And thanks again very much and wish you have much more prosperous business! And hope we have more chance to do business. With best regards! Winnie Li may 2016
    • Buyer Testimonial

      I would have no hesitation recommending the team
      We purchased our property through Austin Gray in May 2016. From the initial meeting, Graham and the team were great with us. The team were knowledgeable on the area and the property's features and potential. We received sound advice during the offer process to secure the house. During exchange and completion, Graham and the team updated us regularly on the status of the sale and were highly responsive to our questions throughout. I would have no hesitation recommending the team to a seller or buyer. Thank you! Chris and Katie May 2016
    • Buyer Testimonial

      you are by far the best I have dealt with
      Dear All I have recently completed the purchase of a property with your agency. I would like to thank you all and particularly Sharon Randle, for the help and professionalism. I have been looking for the right property for nearly two years. I have met several different estate agents and you are by far the best I have dealt with. I will definitely be recommended you. Best wishes Cristina Fumagalli June 2016
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Sharon and Graham went to great lengths
      Many thanks for the support from your team during the purchase of our flat. In particular, Sharon and Graham went to great lengths to sort out issues that arose with the minimum of delay, but everybody was always helpful and responsive to our queries. We would recommend Austin Gray and will certainly be using your services if we decide to move again. Best Regards David & Carole Cook
