    Welcome to Chequers...founded by Stephen Halstead in 1992, the team at Chequers has combined experience of over 125 years of the property market.

    Since opening, Chequers has been highly successful in selling a wide range of property from first time purchases to executive country homes. As an independent company we are able to react immediately to current market trends and pass this advice straight onto our clients. This has held us in good stead throughout the boom and bust markets of recent years.

    All Chequers staff offer a genuinely warm, friendly and professional approach during what can be a very stressful time, whether buying or selling. All agents are not the same. Our unique 'non-typical' agency approach combined with good honest advice together with up to date technology and expertise means we can tailor the service we provide to suit your needs. Whether you are looking to sell or purchase we know we can help.

    Whilst we favour a sharp fresh image to attract potential purchasers we still maintain many of the old fashioned values which have also proved successful time and time again in an ever changing market place.

    Conveyancing
    image cannot be displayed
    At Chequers, over our 27 years in business we have established good relationships with local solicitors who are efficient and whose customer service is in line with our own standards. You are looked after and they will keep you updated on the transaction from initial instruction all the way through to completion. As with anything in life there can be issues that arise with your sale/purchase and this is where having a local solicitor that we work well with is vital. You can visit and discuss any arising situation and that personal touch is there. It is always easy to be led by cost and going for the cheapest option i.e. online companies may seem good, but you just have a team to deal with and can't visit them and therefore lose that personal touch. The solicitors we recommend are local and available for you to visit whenever required. Please feel free to contact us for a free cost of moving and details of the solicitors we recommend.

    Surveys

    In most cases pending your property purchase you will have a mortgage valuation set up by your mortgage lender. However, in some cases, depending on the age and condition of a property, you may want an independent surveyor's report on the property you are purchasing. Whilst a little more expensive in some instances it is money well spent.

    Chequers have had a great working relationship with Creswell Associates set up by Tim Dunkley M.F.R.I.C.S over 11 years ago. With over 27 years experience surveying in the Basingstoke and surrounding Hampshire you are employing a quality surveyor with great knowledge and attention to detail. For details and a quote for a Homebuyers or more in-depth full structural survey please contact us on 01256 810018 and we will get Tim to contact you.

    Auctions

    Our marketing is extremely proactive and in most cases very effective. However in some cases your timescales/situation or type of property may benefit from being put to auction. This is a superb way of achieving the optimum price but you know once the hammer has fallen a sale is agreed and guaranteed.

    We have a number of high profile auction houses we are in touch with and will be more than happy to assist should an auction be the way forward for you.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      Outstanding............Simply the best!
      We were so pleased we chose Chequers to sell our house. Their service and advice was first class throughout the entire process. We highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for an estate agent. Simply the best!
    • Seller Testimonial

      all staff helpful and courteous throughout
      I am very pleased with the professional service received and would recommend Chequers going forward. Al staff were helpful and courteous throughout. I would not hesitate to use them again in the future.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Very happy to recommend Chequers to anyone
      Chequers were recommended to us after we'd had issues trying to sell our house through Purple Bricks. Our friends who had used them for two house sales and were full of praise for their quick and efficient service. Chequers completely lived up to their billing; the house sold within two weeks and two viewings and they were a pleasure to deal with throughout. I'm writing this review from the comfort of my new house and very happy to recommend Chequers to anyone.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Good old Fashioned customer service 
      We've dealt with a few agents in Basingstoke, Gascgoine Pees being by far the worst and Chequers being by far the best. We have both bought and sold with them, different houses, 6 years apart but the staff hadn't changed. When we bought with them they were instrumental in keeping a tricky chain together communicating daily up and down the chain. With selling they were very thorough and professional and dealt with some tricky buyers who were at times taking the Mick. I can't recommend them highly enough. With other agents you get a slick bloke some to value your property and then the admin staff in a central office managing the sale. With Chequers the sale is seen through from start to finish by the same staff. Always answer the phone and reply to emails - top marks
    • Seller Testimonial

      Highly recommendable
      I bought a flat through chequers and the service was amazing, so friendly and helpful, there were a few problems with the sale ( nothing to do with chequers ) and the staff were so quick to update me, I was also trying to sell a property at the same time and so wished I had used chequers instead, I have no problem in telling people how great they are and how they treat you so well
    • Seller Testimonial

      Above and beyond
      Chequers and the team were great in our buying and selling of property's in particular Mark. When we were looking we viewed property's from a number of major estate agents and the service I can honestly say was nowhere near the standard of Chequers. From start to finish our sale and purchase was handled with competence and professionalism. There were obstacles of coarse but these were all resolved quickly, communication from Mark and the team was second to none. We thank you all so much.
    • Seller Testimonial

Simply Fantastic!!!!
    • Buyer Testimonial

      the team was excellent
      I was a first time buyer and Mark and his team was excellent. He was punctual in calling me back when promised and competent in getting the job done. I would recommend him to anyone
    • Buyer Testimonial

      first class grown up service highly recommend them
      had viewed approx. 10 properties and dealt with about 5 different agencies which provided less than mediocre service. I was massively disappointed with a shocking disinterest agents were showing during open days in a property they were supposed to be selling and somehow promoting but also to me as a potential buyer . Lack of basic information, professionalism, customer focus approach well forgotten. Until, thankfully, I met Steven and Mark who both appeared to me as a breath of fresh air from the minute I met them! Professional, respectful, patient. The purchase went smoothly, they kept me informed and updated on a regular basis. First class grown-up service. I would highly recommend Mark and Steven and would definitely use them again.
    • Buyer Testimonial

      restored my faith in estate agents..brilliant
      Steve and his team at Chequers were brilliant. They made us feel special and looked after from start to finish. They have restored my faith in estate agents. We can't recommend them highly enough
    • Buyer Testimonial

      professional & well organised estate agents
      A professional, well organised estate agents. That kept me informed every stage of the buying process. Lisa & team really put both parties as a priority and I felt safe that I was buying and have bought a great property. Thanks so much!
