Simon Powell has joined the team with 25 years experience in the area and is a Member of the National Association of Estate Agents (MNAEA.

    The area we cover contains some of the most evocative countryside in the South West.  Our area is well known for its educational facilities, with an excellent range of private and state schools and first class communications. The A303 lies only six miles to the north of Shaftesbury giving access to London via the M3. For the rail user there are mainline railway stations at Tisbury and Gillingham for London Waterloo, and Castle Cary and Frome for London Paddington.

    All our properties are linked within the same property database. The key to our success has been personal Director level service, high quality marketing and presentation, combined with both local knowledge and national connections.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      Thank you so much Jackson Stops in Shaftesbury, for the wonderful service in selling my house in three weeks, from valuation to offer received. From first contact, the team was extremely efficient and highly professional, but always charming, friendly and reassuring. Their brochure was splendid and their unmistakable experience was evident in the sensible advice, accurate assessment of prospective buyers and patience in dealing with my qualms and queries. All the people in the office, both on the phone and in person were most charming too, and those who handled the viewings were well prepared, considerate and knowledgeable. I would recommend the team without hesitation.
    • Seller Testimonial

      "James and his team in Shaftesbury are the "go to" quality agent in the North Dorset area. It was an easy choice for us because Jackson Stops had done an excellent job for us with a previous, difficult sale in Hampshire. The partnership model fosters a deal-making collaboration, supported by a national brand, but you feel like the entire office is providing a personalised service, with full attention to the getting the job done."
    • Seller Testimonial

      "I wish I had approached Jackson Stops in Shaftesbury about selling my cottage earlier than I did. Why? On my first visit, as on many more occasions, I could not have been more impressed by all the staff, for showing great interest in my property and me the owner.  It was always a pleasure to enter the door of Jackson Stops. Without exception, from the reception to James and Simon, all the staff members were efficient, helpful and so cheerful.  Everyone could not have been more friendly, honest and competent.  As a result of team work a sale was achieved, which turned my world around.  I will always be grateful for the advice, support, professionalism and encouragement I received either by phone or an office visit.  I have no doubts in recommending Jackson-Stops and Staff Shaftesbury to future sellers"
    • Seller Testimonial

      "The Jackson-Stops and Staff team were superb from start to finish.  They absolutely hit the right balance of professionalism and friendliness and were at all times helpful and quick to address any issues along the way.  Last minute hiccups with the sale were handled competently and swiftly and made the whole experience a pleasure.  Good customer service is relatively unusual, and truly excellent service is a rare find so thank you to the team and I thoroughly recommend JSS"
