Meet the Team
  • Introduction

    When we first started trading over seventeen years ago we took empty premises on Mutley Plain and had to put photographs of our family's and friend's homes in the window because we had nothing to sell! Since then our team has steadily grown to include some of Plymouths most experienced and respected estate agents. We have chosen each individual especially to complement and enhance our ethos and levels of customer care.

    Ian Mitchell - Company Director
    Setting up Plymouth Homes just over 17 years ago as the Company Director, I have officially worked in the property industry now for 23 years! I began my journey into this trade by joining Halifax on a Graduate Recruitment Scheme, where I chose the Estate Agency division as I found it far more exciting and interesting than the banking side. 

    What is the best part of your job?
    I love the conversations with clients confirming that we have an agreed sale on their property and the excitement of buyers collecting the keys for their new home. I also enjoy working with a great team of dedicated professionals that are committed to our values (with a sense of humour that makes every day enjoyable). 

    What makes you good at your job?
    I care. It is really important to me that everything is done to the highest possible standard. I want our clients to be delighted with our service and our team to love working for Plymouth Homes. I am very proud to own a company with such a strong reputation. 

    What is your top tip for selling/letting your property?  
    De-cluttered homes that are well presented, clean and properly lit always get the best interest.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      definitely recommend them.
      We have been thoroughly impressed with the service from Plymouth Homes during the sale of our house. Their professionalism and dedication to the customer was evident throughout the process, as was their commitment to providing a high standard of service. We were particularly impressed with the initial marketing and photographs taken by Stuart, and the regular contact and updates from Paula, however all of the staff that we dealt with were helpful and friendly. We will definitely recommend them to anyone selling their house.
    • Seller Testimonial

      kept me informed at every stage
      I found Steve to be helpful and efficient. He kept me informed at every stage of the selling process via email, phone or in person when I visited the office. Stuart was friendly and approachable and particularly tolerant in the early stages, taking time to get the necessary photos of the property when the circumstances were less than ideal.
    • Seller Testimonial

      offer on the table within a month
      They were effective and showed my property to the right clients. I had an offer on the table within a month and they helped negotiate to get the amount I wanted.

    • Seller Testimonial

      recommend your company
      Steven was absolutely amazing. He helped and advised us with the selling process from start to finish and was incredibly patient and persistent with the buyers solicitors who were very slow and inept. We would recommend your company and Steven in particular without any hesitation. Well Done!!
    • Seller Testimonial

      cannot praise Plymouth Homes enough
      I cannot praise Plymouth Homes enough. What should have been an easy sale was much harder than anticipated and the staff stopped at nothing to reassure me every step of the way. Steven was absolutely fantastic in negotiating the process; Clive put my mind at rest when valuing the property and getting it to market, Paula was an absolute pleasure to chat to, and Rob was always a friendly face. Will not hesitate to use in the future!
    • Seller Testimonial

      professional and a delight to deal with
      These people were very professional and a delight to deal with. They did a great job for us achieving a higher price than suggested by other agents. Special mention for Rob and Steven the sales chaser. My wife and I have already recommended them to friends who are selling.
    • Seller Testimonial

      explained everything clearly and completely
      A very professional agent who explained everything clearly and completely. He understood our needs but also the needs of the market, ensuring our property was shown in its best profile.

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      personal and professional service
      Professional, polite and friendly. Staff at Plymouth Homes were more than happy to help and were quick to respond to my queries. Compared to previous Estate Agents I have used, I felt a more personal and professional service with Plymouth Homes....
    • Buyer Testimonial

      very helpful, friendly, thorough and professional
      Plymouth Homes Estate Agents were very helpful, friendly, thorough and professional in helping me find an appropriate property and during completing purchase of the property. They kept me up to date with any developments during this time.
    • Buyer Testimonial

      definitely be using Plymouth Homes next time
      Cannot recommend Plymouth Homes and Steven enough, they were our buyers agents and the sale of our property was far from smooth with miscommunications from solicitors down the chain.  Steven, especially, went above and beyond for us and ended  up being my go to man for the whole process!! With out his words advice and guidance I'm not sure we would have actually been moved in yet! He made the whole process and situation a lot easier and remained professional and level headed the whole time and can not thank him enough! We will definitely be using Plymouth Homes next time (although won't be for a while)!!
    • Buyer Testimonial

      went above and beyond
      11 years ago Plymouth Homes sold me a home as well as selling my previous property. This time they, again, have sold me a new home. I cannot fault the help I received from Rob keeping me informed about the property I was interested in purchasing in and especially Steven Albon in the help of securing and swiftly transacting my sale (which another estate agent was handling) and purchase. Steven went above and beyond facilitating the chain and keeping me informed of what was needed to move fast. We managed to line up the ducks and sort it in just under 4weeks (this is unusual but we were lucky to only have 3people in the chain). I'm over the moon and highly recommend them over Connells (agents selling my house).
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Very pleased with the service
      Very pleased with the service we received and would recommend these agents to friends and family. They made us feel welcome every time we went into their office.

      helpful, attentive and supportive
      The whole team at Plymouth Homes were helpful, attentive and supportive as we both went through the "First Time Buyer" journey.
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Amazing service from Plymouth Homes
      Amazing service from Plymouth Homes despite a difficult situation with other sellers.  Always kept informed. Cannot fault Steven in his service....
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Excellent service from start to finish
      Excellent service from start to finish. Very satisfied with the prompt responses to any questions I had and to Steven who was very knowledgeable.
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Brilliant service from Plymouth Homes
      Brilliant service from Plymouth Homes, no issues what so ever, very helpful and informative. Had to do hardly any chasing as Steven was always updating me! Couldn't have asked for a smoother better buy, would 100% recommend Plymouth Homes and definitely look to buy through them again....
    • Buyer Testimonial

      strong ethical base
      Plymouth Homes provided staunch support throughout a long and difficult house purchase. Staff are not only polite but they strive to make a sale or purchase as hassle-free and as pleasant as possible. This agent has a strong ethical base and cares about its customers. I shall be calling them when I want to sell my house....
