    .......an Agent who when a contract was needed to be signed urgently, chartered a light aircraft to fly to Guernsey where Trustees needed to sign in person and then delivered papers back the following day in time for exchange

    ........an Agent who when builder and buyer fell out over a bath that had been installed the wrong way around arranged for a local plumber to take out the bath and move it by 180 degrees

    .......an Agent who worked through the Christmas holiday when contracts were exchanged on 21st Dec with completion on 3rd Jan but the seller's mother, the actual legal owner, had died just before exchange ! After long conversations with both parties' Solicitors at their homes whist all were wrapping Christmas presents a way forward was found and the day saved

    Most Agents will tell you that they promote excellent customer service.

    We simply say Agents should be judged by their deeds rather than words !

    We pride ourselves on going that extra mile and doing our very best not to be beaten by circumstances.

We know our area and market
  • paragraph

    We are committed to achieving a sale to suit your requirements and you will always receive a personal and professional service.

    We will discuss what type of marketing will work best. Perhaps an open day or informal tender or perhaps discreet marketing with our special HC confidential service.

     Whatever the means of sale we understand that attention to detail, excellent presentation and good communication are the key to providing an effective service to our clients.

    It's true; anyone can set up an estate agency but reputation is paramount and we believe that having roots dating back 90 years is evidence that we must be doing something right.

    We are Chartered Surveyors meeting their strict code of conduct and many of our staff are members of the National Association of Estate Agents having studied and passed their examinations.

    But we don't just rely on our experience and professionalism; you'll find us energetic and progressive in how we market your home.

    Presentation of your property is vital to achieving the best results and our sales details are designed to be informative and attractive both on paper and on line

    Many of our staff have undertaken photographic training in order to obtain the best results. You'll notice that we make sure our main photos have nice blue skies and we aim to "stage" a property during a photo shoot so that it looks its very best.

    Successful sales - satisfied customers

    We are always delighted when our customers take the time and trouble to express their sentiments and whilst we have a separate testimonial page these are a few comments we particularly like

    We can't thank you enough, you are a star and we love you. Mr G & Mrs J H

    I shall certainly be happy to recommend the services of Howard Cundey at any possible opportunity. Ms JB

    It is clear the other agent in the chain was far less versed with the vital role that (sales) progression has to play - it really doesn't just happen by itself. I think by the end of it L of Howard Cundey was doing both their jobs. P & S D

    Will miss talking and dealing with such a fantastic team. It was a pleasure working with U & Howard Cundey. (tweet from Mrs P)

    THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH ! I chose the very best in Howard Cundey! It is not just an Estate Agent. It is a group of the loveliest people, all with so many different skills

Where we cover.....
  • Paragraph

    image cannot be displayed

    East Grinstead is a major town amongst our network of offices. Its history dates back over many centuries and is witnessed by the fine timbered historic buildings in the High Street and the parish church that stands proudly on highest ground in the area.

    The town has much to offer with a wide range of local stores as well as many national retailers and also supermarkets catering for all daily needs.

    There is a good selection of both state and independent schools in the vicinity. Sporting and recreational facilities are catered for and the "Kings Centre" has an indoor swimming pool complex.

    Commuters are served by East Grinstead railway station which provides services to London whilst the M23 motorway can be accessed at Copthorne which then links to Gatwick Airport. East Grinstead is surrounded by open countryside and from parts of the town, Ashdown Forest can be seen in the distance.

What Clients have been kind enough to say about us

Testimonials from Sellers

  • Seller Testimonial

    input and professionalism was in different league


    I wanted to email, to express thanks to you personally for managing the whole sale process. The overall process was nothing at all like what we experienced in 2009 - and I dare say, had we instructed you at that time, we may well have sold a year earlier, despite the changing market.

    Why we allowed ourselves to be persuaded that someone else could do better, I don't know.

    We both felt that you did exactly what you said you would do, on the day that you said you would do it - and that makes such a difference. You gave good feedback in a timely manner, and managed our expectations very well.

    We were also very pleased with the efforts of Lynne and Dianne, and again, their input and professionalism was in a different league to that previously experienced.

    As you know, I had a high regard for Martin, for more than two decades, and the "Cundey tradition" of being best in the area seems to be continuing with the new generation of managers.

    We felt that we were dealing with personal advisers, rather than just Estate Agents - which is exactly how Martin used to work. Again, thank you for the excellent service, and please pass on our thanks to your team.

    Mr & Mrs L
