We are the longest established firm of Surveyors, Valuers and Estate Agents in Sidmouth. Potbury’s started letting and then selling houses in the late 1890s.
Although we are known for our traditional values, do not make the mistake that we are old- fashioned. We have embraced modern technology and use it to provide our clients with the best possible service. We occupy prominent and well appointed offices in the town centre, with the Estate Agency and Letting Department on the ground floor of our building, together with our Professional and Management Departments on the two upper floors.
Our Estate Agency Department enjoys a high profile carrying out work in a professional manner. This Department is run by two of the Directors, Jay Thorne Cert REA FNAEA and Michael Lavers FNAEA. Jay moved here in 1982 and Michael was born in Sidmouth. All the main Estate Agency staff are local people and the combined experience of the Estate Agency team is over one hundred years. We believe that we can offer the most experienced Estate Agency, Commercial, Lettings and Valuation advice in the area.
Our residential lettings Department is run by Bobby Marshall. Bobby was also born and educated in Sidmouth and has been with the firm since leaving Sidmouth College. This department is very active and has expanded considerably under his careful guidance. It offers a full range of letting and management services, not only in Sidmouth, but throughout the East Devon area.
Our Professional Department is run by Malcolm Williams FRICS, who is also a Director of the firm and a Chartered Surveyor. He has a wealth of experience in Sidmouth and East Devon, having worked in the area for over forty years. This department deals with both residential and commercial property and is able to provide professional valuations for probate and other tax purposes, together with rent reviews and general advice. This department covers not only the Sidmouth area but the whole of East Devon and beyond. In addition Malcolm is the retained agent for Clinton Devon Estates, one of the largest landed estates within the South West of England. He acts for a significant number of other major clients throughout the area.
The Property and Management Department is registered and known under the name of Hillsdon Management and this is run by Director, Spencer Jarrett, who was also raised and educated in Sidmouth. Hillsdon Management offers a range of full property management services and currently has a portfolio of over 1000 properties throughout Sidmouth, East Devon, West Dorset and Somerset.
