    Company History
    image cannot be displayed

    As one of the longest established estate agencies in the local area, Osborn Humphreys have been at the forefront of property marketing & management in Shoreham, Steyning and the surrounding areas since 1968. Originally David Humphreys & Co opened in premises next door to the Post Office in Brunswick Road, Shoreham. Due to unprecedented success they rapidly outgrew the office and within 3 years the business moved to larger premises over the road at 32/34 Brunswick Road where they remain to this day. In 1973 the company expanded by opening a further office in Steyning and was situated adjacent to the Law Courts. The business quickly established a sizeable market share benefiting enormously from the two local offices working closely together.

    Our current Principal, Stuart Osborn, joined the Shoreham branch in 1976 and later went on to manage the Steyning office. In 1987 he was invited to join David as a partner in the business and the name was changed to Osborn Humphreys. Following David's retirement in 2002 Stuart moved the Steyning office to its current High Street location, 'Milestones', one of the oldest buildings in Steyning. A 'Wealden' house built circa 1480. In the summer of 2014, we re-located the office to 39 High Street, centrally situated adjacent to the Chequer Inn. A more spacious office, in a more prominent High Street position, providing greater window space and better accessibility.

    During this time we've witnessed many changes to the ways in which property is bought, sold, let and rented. We've always embraced new ways of marketing property and were, in fact, the first estate agent in the area to develop our own website. Thankfully some things simply don't change, such as our commitment and dedication to the individual requirements of all our clients and our desire to deliver an exceptional service.With a highly capable and focused team we are able to draw on our many years of local knowledge and property expertise. We handle the sale and letting of residential property in Steyning, Shoreham and the surrounding areas such as Upper Beeding, Southwick, Ashurst and Lancing.

    • Introduction

      For many years we have won new business and clients from recommendation and continue to do so... But don't take our word for it! Below are just some of the comments we've recently received from buyers and sellers.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      for the full asking price, we could not be happier
      "Now that our sale and purchase have completed we wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all the hard work that you and the staff at Osborn Humphreys Shoreham did to get us where we are today. As you know, we were under a time constraint to sell our property and you did just that in a little over a month, for the full asking price, we could not be happier. Your expert knowledge of the local property market, optimal valuation of our property, excellent photography, marketing materials and web exposure, along with the professional and punctual staff that carried out the viewings of our property made this all possible. The service was completed by your recommendation of an excellent conveyancer. We could not recommend your services more highly. Wishing you continued success for the future." - Mr & Mrs A. - Shoreham.
    • Seller Testimonial

      would not hesitate in using Osborn Humphreys again
      "We recently decided to ask Osborn Humphreys to help us sell our existing home and buy our new home. The service which was provided was extremely professional yet personal throughout. Working with the sales team of three in the Shoreham Office I was very reassured that the whole team took the time to visit the home we were selling to ensure they were very competent in showing potential buyers around our property. They also gave fantastic service in terms of responding to any query I had and always took the time to make sure I was kept aware of any developments in both the purchase and the sale. On top of this I found their realistic and practical attitude to the process refreshing. The distinct lack of 'sales pitch' was like a breath of fresh air and meant we were confident in how our home was placed to sell on the market as well as managing our expectations in negotiating the purchase of our new home. All in all I would not hesitate in using Osborn Humphreys again in any property transaction." - Mr & Mrs P. - Shoreham Beach
    • Seller Testimonial

      several offers on the table within a few weeks
      "Osborn Humphreys were very practical and professional in their handling of my recent sale. From the offset, they gave me a realistic assessment of the current market conditions and the likely values that I might achieve for the property. Once we decided on a valuation, they actively marketed the property to their client base, as they said they would, and had several offers on the table within a few weeks. They critically assessed the potential buyers with a view to finding the "right buyer" for our property and whilst we did not accept the highest offer, we were pleased with the advice that John from Osborn Humphreys gave us regarding the suitability of the buyers because ultimately we ended up with a smooth transaction at a fair price. During the whole process we were kept fully informed of the situation and at all times we felt that Osborn Humphreys were acting in our best interests as the seller, rather than just trying to get the sale through at any cost. I therefore fully endorse Osborn Humphrey's professionalism and service." - Mr J. - Shoreham Beach
    • Seller Testimonial

      I would not hesitate in recommending them
      "Osborn Humphreys initially struck me with their honest, friendly and down-to-earth manner. They sold our house easily (helped by their amazing photos!) and got a good price for it. They then provided much needed moral support and advice to help us finally move into the house of our dreams. John, Kate, Charlie and the rest of the staff at Osborn Humphreys deserve to do well in this competitive market. I would not hesitate in recommending them." - Mrs T. - Shoreham
    • Seller Testimonial

      Their professional service was simply faultless
      "As a solicitor in private practice I have dealt with many Estate Agents. Few, if any, could match the expertise shown by Osborn Humphreys in their handling of my sale in Shoreham. Their professional service was simply faultless." - Mr C. - Shoreham
    • Seller Testimonial

      their service was excellent at all times
      "Osborn Humphreys sold our late mother's house in Shoreham. Their marketing material was very well presented; their service was excellent at all times, with all viewings accompanied, and nothing was too much trouble for their team. We are confident that they obtained the best possible price for the property. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services." - Mr B. - Orkney Islands
    • Seller Testimonial

      three asking price offers in one day!
      "Osborn Humphreys were professional throughout. Kate, Charlie and John were all great communicators, keeping us up to date and informed. The service provided for the sale of our flat was excellent, organising block viewings and achieving three asking price offers in one day! We have also dealt with the lettings team who were equally as helpful and professional. We will definitely use Osborn Humphreys again and would always recommend to others." - Mr & Mrs B. - Shoreham
    • Seller Testimonial

      excellent service at all levels
      "Having let and sold property through Osborn Humphreys, I have been extremely happy with their service and professionalism. From initial viewings to tenant selection and management, the friendly team have always ensured the property is well looked after and provided excellent service at all levels. Marketing materials and activities were excellent, ensuring a quick and hassle free sale." - Mr P. - New York
    • Seller Testimonial

      reliable, professional and above all friendly
      "Osborn Humphreys were great throughout the whole process. The team were excellent communicators, keeping us informed at all times. They provided great advice on complicated matters for our purchase property and liaised well between solicitors when required. They were reliable, professional and above all friendly. We would definitely recommend them. Keep up the great work!" - Mr & Mrs J. - Shoreham
    • Seller Testimonial

      realistic valuation and extensive knowledge
      "Osborn Humphreys were our Estate Agents of choice due to their popularity, friendly non pressured approach; realistic valuation and extensive knowledge of the local housing market. There was no hard sell, unrealistic claims or initial over pricing. Unfortunately, due to a series of unforeseen events, our initially straightforward sale & onward purchase became a lengthy & complex procedure. John & his team remained patient and highly positive throughout the process. Offering us professional guidance & support, essential in keeping us focused on a positive outcome. Professional confidence & advice was demonstrated by all staff. We were also very appreciative of the genuine emotional support shown to us during an extremely traumatic time. John & his team certainly exceeded our expectations and remained consistent throughout the process. We'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Osborn Humphreys for all efforts in making our situation a success. We did get there in the end! We certainly would not hesitate recommending Osborn Humphreys to anyone." - Mr & Mrs W. - Shoreham.
    • Seller Testimonial

      In less than 10 days we had an offer
      "I would like to give my thanks to the staff of Osborn Humphreys for all their sterling work in the sale of my house and the purchase of another. Looking to downsize we had very specific requirements and over a period of time Osborn Humphreys would contact us with property details they felt might be suitable. When one that looked to be ideal came onto the market we were able to view it within days of it being advertised. Once viewed we requested a valuation of our property which was carried out the same day. In less than 10 days we had an offer and the Estate Agency staff assisted our negotiation to agree a sale price for our property and a purchase price for the other. Support through the period up to contracts being exchanged was excellent, and continued to be so through to completion with regular updates of progress. The whole experience was rapid, painless, and professionally carried out. We cannot recommend Osborn Humphreys more highly." - Mr & Mrs S. - Shoreham.
    • Seller Testimonial

      We would strongly recommend Osborn Humphreys
      "John and his team looked after the sale of our house in Shoreham courteously, effectively & professionally. We would strongly recommend Osborn Humphreys to anyone who is considering selling" - Mr & Mrs C. - Albourne.
    • Seller Testimonial

      going the extra mile with an out of hours email
      "Thank you for your hard work, skill and professionalism in selling our house. You kept me calm in choppy waters, which is no mean feat, and if it wasn't for you going the extra mile with an out of hours email, we would simply have bought the wrong house! What an enormous impact you have had." - Miss S. - Shoreham.

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      extremely helpful and responsive
      "The team at Osborn Humphreys were extremely helpful and responsive through out the whole process. Their willingness to liaise between solicitors and get involved when necessary ensured that the sale went through smoothly and within the deadline." - Mr B. & Ms T. - Shoreham Beach.
    • Buyer Testimonial

      attention to us as buyers was second to none
      "We could be accused of being serial movers as we have achieved twice the national average for moving home, however this move to Shoreham is definitely the last one. Osborn Humphreys' attention to us as buyers was second to none, we found them to be very professional, very friendly and very efficient. If we were to move again, (which we won't), we would want to find an estate agent as good and brilliant as Osborn Humphreys were for us this time, we highly recommend them!" - Mr & Mrs F. - Shoreham.
