    10 Years and Counting

    Sapphire Homes have enjoyed a successful level of growth in both the Estate Agent and Letting Agent industry in the Wigan and surrounding areas since we first opened our doors in May 2005. Our story has been one of success achieved through hard work, dedication and a determination. We first started the journey at a small office with only Ella Bristow, Daniel Bristow and Paul Bristow completing the staff but in the 10 year period that team has more than doubled along with two office moves within the 10 year period to allow continual and sustainable growth.

    Our brand new town centre office premises are a signal to our competitors that we are here to stay as well as allowing us to meet and exceed our clients growing expectations. Our new premises at 80 Market Street, Wigan, WN1 1HX is in a prominent location with one of the largest windows in the town centre ensuring our brand, properties and coverage is as extensive as all of our other channels of marketing.

    In the past ten years we have established ourselves as one of the area's leading letting agents who initially specialised in property management agents but given are continued expansion and growth we are now making significant steps into the sales market due to our competitive pricing and excellent service and becoming a recognised Wigan estate agent achieving phenomenal results for our vendors.

    The Bristow family are all born and raised in the Wigan area and this excellent local knowledge and commitment to customer service all helps our growing reputation as a trusted estate and letting agent. We are a very friendly company and understand that moving home can be a daunting prospect and we provide dedicated support and advice every step of the way to ensure your move runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible.

    We thrive on providing an exceptional level of quality service and a large proportion of our new business is generated from recommendations and repeat business. Whether you are buying, selling, renting or looking to invest in property we are your trusted local property expert.

Selling Your Home
  • paragraph

    Selling Made Easy-Free Valuation. No Sale. No Fee
    If you are thinking of selling your home the first step is a marketing valuation. Many agents will say these are free - but if the property is then not placed FOR SALE with that agent then they will then send you an invoice for the valuation. At Sapphire Homes, these are completely free of charge with no obligation to go ahead with the sale should our services not sound appealing to you. A member of our team would be delighted to visit your property and advise you on the sale value of your property and answer any questions you may have in order to make the sale of your home as stress free as possible. At Sapphire Homes we pride ourselves on customer service and should you not be happy with what we offer - you are entitled to serve a 28 day notice period should you wish to place your property on the market with an alternative agent. We are confident of performing against any other agent and if you want invaluable, independent advice, then please do not not hesitate to give a member of our team a call now. Our independent and extensive expertise allows us to make sure the advice we offer is always right for you.

    Buying and Selling The Easy Way
    Just a snippet of some of the positive comments we get from our vendors and purchasers and what helps to drive our success and business forward. 

Testimonials from Sellers

  • Seller Testimonial

    Cheaper Than Online Estate Agents - Huge Savings!
    'Having been quoted over £3000 fee's from another agent and having little interest / no success I switched my property to Sapphire Homes after giving the other agent the notice period. Within a four month period, my house was sold at full asking price - and for a fee of £750 + VAT. As you can imagine - I was more than impressed with the price and service - and have since made the most of the £50.00 introduction service and sent two friends to Sapphire Homes - who are also happy with the service they are receiving.'

Testimonials from Buyers

  • Buyer Testimonial

    Buying Property Made Easy
    'Being First Time buyers it was quite a daunting prospect of finding our first home - and Sapphire Homes helped and guided us through the process with ease. Through liaising with the financial body and the solicitors and keeping us fully up to date it made purchasing our first home really easy. Don't think we will be moving for a number of years but when we do I would not hesitate in using Sapphire Homes to market our home.'
