    Collinson Hall is an independent, long established company that is dedicated to selling properties for the best possible price and offering a professional, committed service.

  • paragraph

    The company is wholly owned by Steve Walker who is also Managing Director and an enthusiastic St Albans resident and advocate.

    Steven bought Collinsons back to life in 1989 after the former version was bought-up in the corporate buy-outs of the late 1980's. At this time the company was based in Holywell Hill.

    In 1992 a second office was opened in Chiswell Green (where it remains) serving the residential sales and lettings needs of the Chiswell Green, Park Street and Bricket Wood communities.

    In 1999 Collinsons moved to Victoria Street sharing the premises with Halls Estate Agents. There was a clear synergy between the companies with Collinsons focussing on residential sales and Halls focussing on residential lettings, commercial and professional work.

    Through working closely together there evolved a point at which it made sense to bring them together and Collinson Hall was formed in 2007.

    The company continues to thrive in the face of much competition and looks forward to working with clients new and old for many years to come.

    How much does a valuation cost ?



    The good news is that we are more than happy to offer our opinion on the value of your property free of any charge or obligation.....

    ..... We (or any valuer) will need to visit the property to properly assess its value. There are too many variables for there to be any real accuracy with an online valuation and we often find that owners are keen to hear about our tailored marketing proposals and how to get the most from the property.

    If you would like to speak to someone about a visit please call us on 01727 843222

    What can I expect from a valuation?


    When asked to give a "valuation" we will offer you our opinion of the likely figure you should expect to achieve should the property be put to the market.We will also discuss with you our recommended approach to marketing your property. This being tailored to your personal circumstances & timescale.
    Although commonly referred to as "valuations", the term is misleading. More accurately they should be termed "market appraisals" - but maybe this is a bit too "agent-speak".

      Unlike other local estate agents

      We are extremely pleased we chose Rod and the team at Collinson Hall to sell our house. From start to finish they went out of their way to make sure everything went smoothly and were always available to give updates and answer our questions. Unlike other local estate agents, they were at all times very professional, yet also friendly and approachable - we knew we could trust them to get the best possible outcome for us. Not only did they make the whole process very straightforward, they helped to secure a great deal with our perfect buyers - all in all we can't recommend them enough.

      would happily use Collinson Hall

      I found that Richard and Karen at Collinson Hall were always responsive to my requests for information and general help regarding progression of the property purchase. It was great having someone to call who I had confidence they would deliver in a timely manner. I would happily use Collinson Hall again. Many thanks.

      knowledgeable and professional

      Dear Steven, We have exchanged on our house today and wanted to make it top priority to get in contact with you personally and let you know how delighted we have been with the level of service and expertise from your team in St Albans, with a special Thank You going to David Chadwick. We had initially marketed our house last May with another St Albans agent, however, after numerous second and third viewings the deal was never actually clinched, so we withdrew our house from the market a few months later, feeling very disillusioned by the whole process. We then got in contact with Collinson Hall after friend had recommended your agency. We met with David and he suggested an appropriate marketing plan. He also recommended some very clever updates to make to our home, in order that it be seen in the best light. We immediately felt very confident with our decision to appoint Collinson Hall and David quickly demonstrated that he was knowledgeable, professional and had a great understanding of the market place. Whilst we appreciate this probably comes across as a smooth and swift transaction, we feel that this is purely down to the incredible service delivery and sales strategy at Collinson Hall. David has remained in constant contact with us throughout this whole process and has always returned calls, been contactable at any hour and responded to emails sent out of hours and at weekends. We were promised a weekly update after we accepted the offer in early January and that is exactly what has been delivered, right up until the last few days where there have been last minute legal issues causing everyone concern. David took the bull by the horns today and ensured that all parties were kept fully informed and the exchange came within our deadline, to secure a rental property. It has been refreshing to work with such a credible agency, who are quite clearly top of their game. We would have no hesitation in recommending Collinson Hall and would be grateful if you could pass on our thanks to David and the rest of the team.


      Mr & Mrs V, St Albans

    • Seller Testimonial

      professional, efficient and extremely helpful

      Just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help with the sale of our house. From day one you were professional, efficient and extremely helpful. We felt completely confident in your hands through the whole sales process as your expertise, experience and impressive local knowledge put us at ease. It was quite a lengthy process in the end due to delays with our purchase and you and your colleagues kept us sane through several fraught situations. Nothing was too much trouble. We only wish customer service was this good everywhere! Many thanks again.

       All the best, L & J.

    • Seller Testimonial

      fantastic service

      As we draw close to completion date we just felt that we wanted to write and thank you all very much indeed for the fantastic service we have received from you since we put our property on the market. Not only has your service always been extremely professional, but also you have combined this with a warm, friendly atmosphere whether on the telephone or when entering your office. Your realistic initial valuation of our house also resulted in us achieving a sale at the upper end of your estimated figure, which has to be a good result! The regular feedbacks following each viewing were much appreciated and we cannot imagine how anyone could possibly have better service from an estate agent. Thank you once again for all you have done to enable us to achieve a quick sale at a good figure and we wish all of you the very best for the future.

      E.M., Chiswell Green

    • Seller Testimonial

      going the extra mile

      Dear Rene,

      A very big thank you to you and your team who have been so supportive in the selling of our family home which has been in the family for 58 years. Big big thank you to Lisa and Yvonne, who always replied to emails in a very polite manner and with such ruthless efficiency. I really think the service you supply is a second to none - service with values not often seen in many services these days. Thank you for going the extra mile, just wish I had some more properties to sell as it's been a pleasure dealing with you. Keep up the great work. With kindest regards, A & N x

    • Seller Testimonial

      couldn't have been handled better

      We wanted to thank both of you for your work but also your approach to the sale of C. Avenue. We really feel it couldn't have been handled better by any other agent and will recommend you when we get the opportunity. It was interesting how important the matter of trust was. It must be really difficult to maintain the trust of both vendor and client when they have different agendas - but you seem to be able to do this. It must be the years of experience.
