Darby & Liffen is a family run business and was established in 1964 by co-founders the late Stephen Thomas Darby and Mr Bert Clifford Liffen. The emergence of the new millennium and Paul and Owen Darby the third generation of the Darby family deeply rooted in the business, seemed that the time was appropriate to re-branding our corporate identity, thereby, reflecting the quality service we offer.
Darby & Liffen specialise in all aspects of the property business be it Selling, Buying, Letting or Renting. Owen Darby Company Director is well versed with market trends and together with his local knowledge, is able to provide without obligation FREE sale and rental valuations reflecting any given market conditions.
Paul Darby is a Project Manager at a well-known Investment bank in the City of London and has retained his interest with Darby & Liffen. Paul is the company secretary and advisor to the company. David Darby the former Managing Director familiar to many past clients no longer plays an active role due to ill health. Amy Darby the present Managing Director has amassed over 35 years of experience as an estate agent and is knowledgeable in most aspects of the business and oversees both the sales and rental departments.
Our offices are ideally located with stress free parking that makes Bells Road, Gorleston a pleasant and easy shopping area. Our modern eye-catching window displays get your property photographs not just seen but noticed.
Darby & Liffen are up to date with the necessary modern technology. We not only have our own user-friendly web site but also use traditional methods to promote your property such as advertising in the local press, on property websites, window displays, leaflet drops; we also operate a local and national mailing list.
Our very competitive sole agency rates represent good value for money by securing the best possible price for the vendor; and this is achieved by providing a current market valuation and together with excellent negotiating skills we possess. Our experienced staff, are on hand to give advice and offer ongoing support in particular to first time buyers throughout the transactions.
In recent times, however, there has been a shift in attitudes with people purchasing property with a view to letting. This has become a popular source of investment rather than saving by traditional methods such as stocks and shares, pensions or building society savings accounts. Our Property Management Department can provide useful advice to potential landlords.
Our continued success stems from the fact that we focus on customer care (unique these days), and offer a professional yet approachable and friendly service. Our new offices are very comfortable, pleasant and inviting to all clients.
Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all our customers past and present for their custom and their loyalty and very much look forward to welcoming new customers whether it be buying, selling or letting.
