    Selling Your Property The Intelligent Way
    image cannot be displayed
    Burkmars estate agents has been selling property exclusively within the Lymington property market since 1993. Over the years we have gained unrivaled market knowledge and experience focused specifically on Lymington and the surrounding areas of Millford-On-Sea, Sway, Everton and Barton-On-Sea.

    And we do everything in our power to ensure your property is exposed to the widest pool of potential buyers, so you get the best result when selling your greatest asset.

    We make it our business to understand the Lymington property market in-depth by closely analysing 'supply and demand' metrics, as well as market changes and trends, both locally and nationally. More specifically, we're in tune with the London property market, as we understand that local market conditions can be impacted by activity in the City and this ensures that all opportunities to find the best buyer are maximised.

    We always work hard to appreciate every detail of your home and its specific appeal to the right buyer, so we know the best way to present your property to the market. Our dynamic website has been designed to showcase your property in its best light and our live web chat allows buyers to contact us in an easy way, any time of the day. And, of course, we are linked to the major property portals, to ensure maximum exposure.

    Our intimate knowledge of the Lymington, Milford-On-Sea, Sway, Everton and Barton-On-Sea property markets, and its properties, means we have close relationships with the local community. As a result we have a large number of repeat customers who come back to us time and again. Indeed, our extensive database of contacts means we often know the best buyer before marketing has even started.

    In addition to providing regular updates and feedback at times that suit you, we have also created an intuitive 'property performance hub' for our sellers, with 24/7 access, providing real-time information on market engagement with your property (pulling data from Rightmove and our website).

    Trusted To Work Tirelessly For You
    image cannot be displayed
    Burkmars has always remained true to its traditional values of offering an excellent service from beginning to end. 
     

    The market has moved on since we first opened our doors on Lymington High Street in 1993 and that means our customers' needs and requirements have also evolved. The delivery of our service is tailored to meet your requirements and preferred choice of communication.

    However you choose to work with us, we can always be trusted to work closely and consistently throughout the whole process, from start to finish.

    We will start by providing an honest and true valuation of your property, based on our experience and knowledge of the area and current market conditions and this has enabled us to achieve, on average, 97% of the asking price (based on all properties sold in 2018).

    On instruction, we produce high quality photography and particulars which we will distribute to potential buyers immediately, along with a follow-up phone call to introduce the property and encourage a viewing.

    We're not just here to get the job done as quickly as possible (although we can do that if a fast turnaround is your priority) - more importantly, we're here to ensure you get the best return, aligned to your goals and aspirations for your move. We have an in-depth knowledge of the conveyancing process and work just as hard once an offer has been accepted to support the sale all the way through to completion. Ultimately, we want you to feel confident that the process will be as smooth and hassle-free as possible.

    The advice and marketing we offer is based on genuine experience and knowledge and is why our customers keep coming back to us.

    They 'trust' our 'intelligent' approach.

Since then, Michael has been responsible for the sale of 100s of properties, with over £250m worth of Lymington property sold in the last 10 years alone. His experience and diplomacy with all stakeholders throughout the property chain gives Michael a huge advantage in getting properties sold at the best price, and in the shortest possible time frames. Despite his determination, Michael is well known for being supportive, sympathetic and discrete, particularly during sensitive transactions, and will always go the extra mile for his clients to ensure he achieves their desired outcomes.Born and raised in Lymington and the New Forest, including attending local Durlston Court school, Michael is now a resident across the county border in Mudeford.

Following a successful spell at a well-known estate agency in Southbourne, Hugh returned to his Lymington roots, where as a resident, his clients can benefit from his invaluable wealth of local knowledge. Coming from a family of property-obsessed estate agents in the area, Hugh is rapidly making a name for himself in the Lymington property market and firmly giving his family a run for their money with his approachable personality, enthusiasm and determination to provide the best service. Hugh loves the variety that comes with being an estate agent, in which no two days are the same and there's always an opportunity to meet new and interesting people. As a qualified football coach, Hugh remains involved in supporting and playing in the local community; representing several local teams and continuing to coach when needed. As an active sportsman, he can regularly be found on the golf course or tennis courts.

    Steven Forster - Sales Manager
    Following several years of working in insurance and construction, Steven started his estate agency career in 2002, working initially in New Milton & Highcliffe, and then moving to Christchurch, where he honed his estate agency expertise with a reputable agent for over 15 years. Steven took a two and half-year career break to travel the world and mark-off some of his bucket-list, with a few highlights including a trek to Everest Basecamp, travelling the Atacama Desert, making the most of his advanced scuba diving qualifications all over the world including the Galapagos islands and Indonesia, hiking in the Andes and campervanning around New Zealand for four months, before returning to the luxuries of Lymington and joining the Burkmars team in 2020. With many years experience working in estate agency, selling every type of property, from studio flats to waterside homes to large family estates, Steven brings a wealth of knowledge of the conveyancing process and works tirelessly to ensure sales are expertly negotiated for the best market value and successfully pushed through to completion; eliminating the associated stress that often comes with moving. Steven, a Lymington resident since the age of 8 and currently living on Lymington's popular high street, is a keen Southampton FC supporter. He also plays for the local Lymington Town Veterans team, and when he's not enjoying a stroll around Lymington's sea wall, Steven makes the most of the local area's watering holes, with The Chequers Inn and The Angel being firm favourites.
