    Jeffrey Downton - Director and Progressor
    "I first started my career as an estate agent back in 1989 where I quickly learnt every aspect of the trade. I quickly began to excel in frontline residential property sales and lettings and to enhance my understanding of the industry I became fully qualified as a mortgage advisor. In just a few years I was appointed as branch manager of a large corporate agency in Hastings which under my guidance went on to become the most successful corporate estate agent in the local area. Selling property has been a huge part of my life and so it made sense to me to start a business in an industry where I was guaranteed a high level of job satisfaction. As well as being a Director at Smart Property my other main role is to successfully progress every sale that we agree. I am in constant contact with buyers, sellers, solicitors, freeholders, mortgage lenders and surveyors to ensure that all of my clients moving experiences are as stress free as possible."

        Dr Broody

        "Buying and selling property is not without its stresses, as we all know, so a welcoming and efficient estate agents can make a great deal of difference. Smart were gracious, accommodating, thorough, and always ready to listen. Indeed, on a number of occasions they went above and beyond the call of duty to answer queries and put my mind at rest. I felt I had a whole team on my side working to expedite matters and ensure the process was as trouble-free as possible. Not only were they knowledgeable and professional but managed to combine this with a friendly and personable service. I required advice a number of times and they were unfailing in their attention and took the time to tailor advice to my specific situation. Altogether an exemplary approach and I have no hesitation in recommending them."
