“We are an independently owned and run Estate and Letting Agent that opened in the summer of 2009 in the rural village of Lyminge in the Elham Valley. In May 2012 with just under 3 years under our belts we incorporated into our company Philip A Chapman, the oldest established Estate Agent in the historic coastal town of Hythe.
Company director and owner Bill Laing heads up the Sales Department and has over 12 years of local experience of the industry, having worked extensively throughout East Kent running a variety of different estate and letting agents before setting up Laing Bennett. He is also a local having been born and brought up in Lyminge along with his fellow director and brother Robert Laing who heads up the Lettings side of the business. Ian Bennett is the financial director of the company and overseas management of the Lettings accounts and the day-to-day running of the company.
From our bases in Lyminge and Hythe our team of property professionals aim to provide an unrivalled personalised service for the local community.
We strive to make selling or letting your home as stress and hassle free as possible, by tailoring our services to each individual client's situation.
Before opening the Lyminge office it was clear that the Elham Valley was poorly served by Letting Agents with landlords having no choice but to use a Folkestone or Canterbury agent. Since the launch of our Lettings Department both landlords and tenants have benefited from a locally based service. With a high demand for property in the area we have been swiftly letting property to waiting tenants. With the incorporation of the Philip A Chapman lettings portfolio we are able to cover a wider area and benefit more landlords and tenants from our approach and services.
Community is also important to the company and we support many local events and charities throughout the year. For example, we assist the Lyminge Association by having the Christmas tree and lights outside our Lyminge office. We also act as the box office for the local dramatic society and for other shows and concerts.
Our offices in Lyminge and Hythe both have long traditions of being estate agencies and it is our pleasure to carry that forward into the future.”
