Distinctive Homes
  • paragraph

    Our Distinctive Homes brand offers an extremely high level of service combined with extensive coverage, bespoke marketing and truly exceptional value.

    This brand is generally best suited to properties with a market value of over £600,000 or very individual, character properties located within the towns and villages across East Kent.

    We understand that distinctive homes often require a little more attention to ensure that they reach the right market and achieve their best possible price. For this reason we offer an extremely comprehensive marketing package for our Distinctive Homes clients which includes:

    • Professional photography
    • Detailed floor plans
    • High gloss professionally printed brochures
    • Regional and London advertising
    • National coverage through nearly 800 independent estate agents


    Unlike many agents, for new instructions, we include all of the above within our standard fee.

    Furthermore, as a member agent of the Guild of Professional Estate Agents, not only do we have access to motivated buyers from right across the UK, we are also able to display your property in a central London office, giving you direct access to the London market.

    In addition, our Distinctive Homes vendors can relax in the knowledge that one of our Company Directors will always be on hand to advise them throughout every stage of their move, right through until its successful completion.

    London Buyers

    In recent years there has been a dramatic increase in buyer migration to this area from London. This is due to our excellent road and rail links to the capital and the comparative value for money that property in East Kent offers.

    Therefore, to truly maximise your chances of selling, we know just how important it is that we reach these buyers.

    Through our central London office, situated in Park Lane, we are able to display all of our properties to discerning London buyers. This prestigious office has a full complement of staff and external touch screen televisions, enabling potential buyers to access all of the properties offered by Guild members, across the entire country.

    We also regularly advertise in the Living South Resident magazine which is a highly regarded lifestyle magazine, hand delivered to discerning households throughout the affluent south east London boroughs such as East and West Dulwich. This enjoys a regular readership in excess of 76,000, with over 80% of its readers either senior professionals or working within professional management. In addition, the Guilds own property magazine is produced regularly and gives our properties exposure into South London.

    Accompanied Viewings
    image cannot be displayed


    For some people, the thought of showing a complete stranger around their home can be a little daunting. For others it may be the pressures of work or a busy family life that makes accommodating viewers difficult. But, whatever the reason, at Foundation we are only too happy to help and firmly believe in accompanying our viewing appointments.

    Furthermore, we passionately believe that as a result of accompanying our viewings we are able to arrange considerably more sales, as this helps us to far better understand the requirements of our buyers.

    It means that someone with years of experience in dealing with both people and property will always be on hand to ease any concerns and overcome any objections that a buyer may have.

    But, if that property really doesn't suit that particular buyer, we are also in the right place at the right time to suggest alternatives that may be more appropriate. We know that we won't win them all - but sometimes just having us there can make all the difference!

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      you have been exemplary in every aspect.

      Mr C - Bethersden

      Dear Robert, I just wanted to write a quick note now that we have exchanged contracts and to thank you for your incredible service during the sale. I have bought and sold many houses, but the professional service from you and Foundation Property Services has been the best I have ever experienced. From preparing details, marketing, accompanying viewings, negotiating and chasing through to completion, you have been exemplary in every aspect. I would definitely use you again when I'm next selling a property and will wholeheartedly recommend you to others. Kind regards.

    • Seller Testimonial

      a thoroughly positive experience.

      Mr & Mrs P - Canterbury

      Dear Kelvin, This is a long overdue note to thank your entire team for outstanding service pre, during and post sale of Flat in Chantry Hall. The prospect of selling a property is exciting, the reality can often be fraught with frustration, disappointment, managed (or not) expectations, delays, near misses and expense. Gayle and I found working with Foundation to be a thoroughly positive experience. Not only did we feel everyone had an interest and worked hard to find a buyer, but one very simple skill set you apart - communication. We must have received three of four calls per week, sometimes with little more information than 'there's no information', but at no point did we feel like you'd given up, lost interest or 'gone quiet'. We felt part of the process throughout, the team's judgement was sound - alerting us to potential time-wasters as well as strong sales leads. So, very many thanks for an excellent job well done, congratulations for continuing to positively shift perception of Estate Agency (no mean feat) and keep doing what you all do - it's an excellent and strong team made up of complementary skills.

    • Seller Testimonial

      excellent friendly and kind people

      Mr M - Wingham

      Thanks, Excellent people, excellent friendly and kind people. My immense heartfelt gratitude and wish all of you the best life has to offer.

    • Seller Testimonial

      We rate this Estate Agents above all others

      Mr & Mrs M Whitstable

      We were very pleased that you marketed our 4 bedroom detached house in Whitstable and the quality of your work was outstanding. All the people in your office came to see our house so that when clients asked details about the house they could talk on the subject authoritatively. Indeed the brochure, PDF files on the internet and the excellent photos and plan show what an excellent professional organisation, Foundation Property Services are. The other thing we noted was that staff answered the telephone quickly, efficiently and were always polite. When someone said they would ring you back they always did! We rate this Estate Agents above all others and recommend the company to any who wish to market their property in Kent.

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      a beacon amongst estate agents.

      Mr & Mrs B - Boughton

      Steve and I wanted to send a heartfelt THANK YOU to you all for the friendly, professional and exceptional service you provided - a beacon amongst estate agents.

    • Buyer Testimonial

      we will certainly recommend you to others

      Mr D & Mrs L - Dunkirk

      Hello again Kelvin & team, Firstly can we just say a very big thank you to yourself and the "Foundation" team for all you have done to enable us to purchase Courtenay Rd. It really is appreciated and you have all been very helpful and pro active which we cannot say about our own estate agent. Hopefully we won't, but if we ever decide to move again you will be the first we call and we will certainly recommend you to others.

    • Buyer Testimonial

      you had made the effort.

      Mr B - Wingham

      Hi I have just got into my new property, so won't be needing any more property details, thanks. But if I could say that the service you gave me was the best in the emails you sent me, no other firm could really be bothered after a couple of emails. I wish I could have bought this house off your company as you had made the effort. If anyone ever asks me to recommend an estate agent, it will be yours.
