    Naish Estate Agents & Solicitors are a dynamic and reputable family business selling property in York and its surrounding areas.

    As the name suggests, we are estate agents with a difference .

     Unlike most estate agents, we are also solicitors, which means we can sell property and then do the conveyancing in-house - a true All in One service for our customers.

    Both Harriet and James Naish offer honest advice and assistance in preparing your house for marketing.

    Each client is treated individually and marketing is tailored to your specific needs, unlike other agents who often offer a 'one size fits all' approach!

    Mortgage Advice

    We refer our customers to truly independent mortgage brokers, who'll happily meet you at home or at our offices. They are not employed by us and so will look after your interests, not ours!

    Nigel is probably York's most experienced residential Chartered Surveyor, having worked in estate agency for almost 50 years! Often and quite correctly referred to an "York's most honest Estate Agent", he is highly rated amongst fellow professionals for his vast experience and integrity. Nigel originally qualified as an auctioneer and spent the early part of his career at Jackson Stops & Staff, before taking up a partnership at Robinson & Morton in the mid 1970's. Since then, the business has changed its name a few times, ultimately becoming Naish Estate Agents & Solicitors in 2005, when his son James stepped up to the helm. Nigel specialises in residential agency, valuation and development.
