    Stevens & Carter is a well established independent residential & letting agency with two local offices, here in East Sussex, plus an associated Central London property showroom. We have not forgotten the true value of good customer service and our clients enjoy a quality of service almost unknown in today's lifestyle of on-going automation.

    However as a progressive business we have embraced the use of modern technology in all our offices, and recently substantial investment in new IT systems have again enabled us to raise our marketing profile. For those who prefer the traditional approach to both residential sales & lettings we have two local offices plus the use of a property showroom in London's Park Lane, a useful link to bringing outside area buyers to your home.

    Our experienced valuers have over a half a century of property expertise between them and are well versed in advising both new and existing clients accordingly. This is an important aspect of our business as in today's cost conscious times it is crucial that values are appraised accurately. Our commitment to our clients is to provide a high quality all encompassing service that gives a smooth transition from valuation until the removal van arrives to complete the process.

    The old saying "first impressions count" could not be more true than when your property is launched onto the market. Therefore it is important that your estate agent has all the right tools to ensure that your home is given the highest marketing profile and is capable of standing out from others being sold within your price band - your competition.

    At Stevens & Carter we will prepare a full specification of your home with numerous photographs to show it in it's best light, plus a detailed floor plan to give it that extra dimension. We ask that these property details are thoroughly checked by you prior to circulation as they are used on major web portals.

    On selected sites Virtual Tours and Large High Definition Images are employed to ensure maximum exposure to potential viewers, and to encourage appointments from home hunters.

    Stevens & Carter has a professional recognised status that is supported by our membership of the "Guild of Professional estate Agents" a unique feature we have within the BN27 post code area. This enables us to be represented in the lucrative London property market with the use of a prestigious marketing suite, situated in Park Lane. This feature ensures that all property on our register is promoted in the capital city a feature uniquely ours within this part of east Sussex.

    We are also experienced in using "open house" and "viewing days" to help sell your home, and recently this has produced good sale prices for our vendors.
