    Mortgages - Residential Commercial/Private & Investment

    One of our objectives at David & Co is to make the process of searching and applying for a mortgage simpler.

    For many of us applying for a mortgage can be a daunting and frustrating experience; particularly in the current economic climate where mortgages are ever harder to obtain and are now considered to be the most difficult part of the house buying process!

    Therefore receiving advice to help you choose the right mortgage is probably one of the most important decisions you will need to make when buying a new property.

    A mortgage is often one of the largest financial commitments that you will undertake, so choosing the right one requires careful consideration.

    We work in partnership with Iain Carter from My Mortgage Company, they are our 'in house' independent mortgage advisers who will search the whole market and use software which provides access to lenders across the UK, resulting in impartial advice and delivery of competitive rates.

    Whether you are seeking a mortgage for your new home or investment property, or simply wish to review your existing mortgage to determine its competitiveness, My Mortgage Company offer the experience and resources to help you find the one that best matches your needs and circumstances.

David is very well known in the area and has long standing associations with many clients and values repeat business very highly as recognition of a service well received.

    David Coleby - Partner
    David is married and lives just outside Brighton, he has worked in the Brighton & Hove area for some 35 years covering most parts of the city, managing offices for local independent firms as well as large corporate groups before starting his own firm with David Whittle at Fiveways some 10 years ago. He is far better suited to the independent estate agency where its more about the people and he prefers the chance to build relationships whilst being friendly and professional. He really appreciates it when feedback like this is sent in as it means the client has gone away happy. 'The main reason we decided to put our house on the market with them was their gentle professional approach. They weren't pushy and really understood our needs and the market in the area. David & Co assisted in the negotiations and made it possible to buy and sell at the prices we needed to be able to make the move. Even though the moving experience had its predictable hold-ups, David & Co, were very good in keeping us informed and spent a lot of time and effort in keeping us up to date with proceedings. I could happily recommend them to anyone' One of the best feelings is when you hand over the keys and know no you have helped in making the clients dream come true. Outside of work travel is always top of the list with the annual pilgrimage to the 24hr Le Mans race a firm favourite.

      Calm and efficient service 
      I am very pleased with the service provided by David and Co; throughout the process from valuation to handing over the keys to the purchaser David was both thoughtful and efficient. Selling during lockdown was not easy but David and Co ensured that the process was as stress free as it could be. David was very good at keeping me informed of developments and responded to my queries promptly. I was very pleased I chose an independent Estate Agency . 2021

      helpful and cheerful throughout the long process
      David & Co's personal touch made the process of moving so much easier. Their expert knowledge of the Fiveways area, lovingly photographed property details and slickly organized open day got us an excellent price at a very competitive fee. David Whittle was open, helpful and cheerful throughout the long process - chasing solicitors, estate agents and owners both up and down the chain to ensure that everything moved as quickly as possible and we were all kept fully informed. I cannot recommend them highly enough and wish that all Estate Agents were more like them.

      David was incredibly supportive and understanding
      My sale took a long time through 3 lock downs thanks to Covid. Through it all David was incredibly supportive and understanding. The firm is very professional. They give excellent value and their work is of great quality. They kept me involved throughout and helped the chain hold together through some difficult circumstances. Would highly recommend these estate agents. Thank you.

      They are easy to deal with, direct & helpful
      Over the years we have sold a number of properties through David & Co and they have become our go-to estate agents. They are easy to deal with, direct, helpful and have always been very active on our behalf. They have sometimes been more active than our solicitors in gaining information about the progress of sales up and down the chain, of highlighting problems and then attempting to deal with them. I have nothing but praise for their efforts to see our sales through to completion. They have also been very helpful in giving advice about what we might do, if anything, to make our property more saleable (including doing nothing!). I highly recommend them

      David's were nice, decent people
      I highly recommend David & Co who were fantastic through the sale and purchase of our new house. In what can sometimes be a pushy trade, you really felt like both David's were nice, decent people who like getting to know their customers and help them out in any way possible. This was all done in a calm, reassuring and professional manner. I wouldn't hesistate to use them again when we next move.

      Complete professionals
      Complete professionals, calm, knowledgeable and personable. We have now met so many estate agents and none have impressed us as much. We learnt more about what to prepare for, in selling our house, in our first half hour with David, than from all the other agents who sought our custom. We found it very difficult to find a new home, and at no point did David push us to make a purchase, on the contrary advised us and reassured us that we must put our interests first. This contrasted with the assertive attitude of the agents we were trying to buy through.

      Five Stars!
      Five Stars! Delighted with the service provided by David to sell my house. He explained in great detail prices achieved for similar properties in the area before recommending a selling price for my home. He kept me fully updated with feedback from viewings and I achieved a great offer in just a few days, despite the challenging property market at the moment. David made selling my house a pretty quick, easy and low stress experience. I would certainly recommend!

      They were so helpful
      David & Co sold my house and They were so helpful. I ended up in hospital just before Exchange and was still there for completion, so my daughter had to handle everything for me. She was helped by David all the way. They made sure we didn't have any extra worries at this stressful time with their friendly attitude. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

      Extremely helpful and courteous
      We have always had very positive experiences with David & Co. Having recently sold our house, we have also sold and bought properties with them in the past. Both David's are extremely helpful and courteous and work well together as a team. Unlike other estate agents that we have experienced, their interest in each individual customer does not waiver along with fluctuations in the housing market, but remains consistent and sincere without pressure tactics. We would highly recommend their services, whether buying or selling a home.

      Can't recommend them highly enough
      David and Co were recommended to us by the Mortgage Studio. David Coleby was fantastic, going above and beyond what was expected of him. Excellent communication throughout. It was a particularly complicated chain and David helped us thorough it, even when others below us in the chain dropped out. We can't recommend them highly enough. 10/10. Don't go with a well-known High Street agent, go with someone with intimate knowledge of the local micro-market.

      Highly recommended
      We recently sold our house with David & Co's help. We initially chose them because we preferred their affable and pragmatic approach to the pushy salesmanship of some other agents. They were patient and helpful with us and our buyers and I've no doubt that their approach helped us to complete our sale. Highly recommended.

      I doubt the sale would've completed without him
      I have recently sold my house in Hollingbury through David and Co. The service that I received throughout the process was exceptional and I would highly recommend them. The sale was fraught with complications, but David did everything he could to resolve these as they arose and kept me constantly informed throughout. I doubt that the sale would have completed without him consistently going the extra mile.

      Thank you so much for all your hard work
      Dear David, Thank you so much for all your hard work on my behalf recently when I sold my house. It was most unfortunate that the people whose house I wanted to buy had decided to manage with an online estate agent only. They may have saved themselves a proper fee, but they got no service at all and I am so grateful to you for being willing to pick up some of the slack caused by this. I really don't know how I would have got the keys at all without your help! I know you made so many calls to solicitors, agents and others in the chain trying to get everything coordinated, and you kept me fully informed of everything that was going on. Your cheerfulness and support were incredibly welcome throughout the whole painful experience. I can't imagine ever moving again, but if I do I will certainly come to you first, and will be more than happy to recommend you to anyone else. Thank you.

      Considerate and  helpful
      I have just sold my house through David & Co and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them to others. My house had tenants in at the start of the sales process and I was wanting to minimise disruption to them whilst at the same time progressing the sale. Throughout the sales process, David & Co have been sensitive, tactful and diplomatic with negotiations between myself, the buyers and the tenants. I have found David & Co to be friendly, open and with a great local knowledge. They provided particularly helpful advice at the start of the process ( I was keen for a 'quick sale' and they recommended I appoint a solicitor/conveyancer prior to the house being officially on the market, in order to be ready as and when an offer came in). It certainly saved time. All phone calls and emails have been responded to promptly. They have gone out of their way to be considerate and helpful (even to the extent of making a special trip to the house to ensure fridge/freezer doors were left open once the tenants had vacated the house). I was kept updated at all times and wish I could have the benefit of their exemplary service were I to be buying in the Fiveways area again, however I am now out of area.

      We knew immediately who we would ask to sell our house for us, since they had been so helpful when we bought the property - even though at that time they were acting for our vendors. David C & David W, are both extremely good communicators, so you are never left in the dark, which is so important during what I can be stressful and anxious period. They are passionate about what they do, have expert knowledge about the local area, and are up-front and straight-talking. The service is personal, warm and professional.

Whilst no move is straightforward, David smoothed the move over, ensuring all the items needed to get the move complete were attended to.

      Everything you could hope for in an estate agent

      I sold my house recently through David & Co. The two Davids are everything you could hope for in an estate agent - knowledgeable, helpful, responsive and honest. They know the local housing market inside out and are happy to share useful tips and local contacts. Buying and selling houses would be a far pleasanter, less stressful experience if there were more businesses like this one! Thanks again for your help in selling my house.

      David and Co are by far the best and most reliable estate agents we have dealt with. We bought and sold through them and they are honest, reliable and trustworthy which is a rarity. We cannot recommend highly enough. They keep in regular contact without being intrusive and will go out of their way to ensure that they deal with a lot of the stresses of your house move negotations. We will only ever use and recommend them in future.

Unlike other estate agents (who shall remain nameless!) David, one of the partners there, remained in constant contact, giving us regular updates. Nothing was too much trouble for them, they were always at the end of the phone to answer any questions, and when asked something they would give honest, reliable information and give us realistic time scales. I will certainly be recommending David & Co to anyone who needs a reliable and honest estate agent who will always have time to talk you through things. Thank you, and if we ever move again (hopefully for not some time!) we will be using you again

      good communication going throughout the process

      Thank you and the team for helping to expertly negotiate selling on my behalf. I am pleased to say that in choosing David and co, I did not have to suffer any superfluous marketing spiel nor inexperienced agents in selling my property. Throughout, I was able to relax in the knowledge that you are experts at negotiating on sellers behalf and in finding prospective buyers. This is particularly true in my case since I am no longer living in the area and relied on you entirely for viewings, and even helping with gas/ elec readings! I think your popularity as an estate agent stems from your area knowledge, your ability to be honest, upfront and realistic with both parties and in keeping good communication going throughout the process. I would thoroughly recommend any of my friends to either purchase or sell a property via yourselves since I believe you are one of the few and far between experts in the area which actually help ease the stress of buying and selling homes with a no- nonsense approach. I wish you all the very best for the future and thank you for all your help!

      Communication from David was excellent throughout

      We would highly recommend David and Co to buyers and sellers alike. David Whittle dealt with the sale of our flat, which sold immediately and for the full asking price after our flat open day and priced our flat fairly and did not promise something that could not be achieved. Communication from David was excellent throughout the entire process, when it came to us finding a house David was of great assistance. Although we did not buy through David & Co, David was always willing to take the time to advise on our purchase. David was excellent when it came to chasing up both our sale and purchase and the speed with which we completed was most definitely down to his efforts. When it came to our sale and purchase David proved to be honest, caring and incredibly knowledgeable. David & Co are the only estate agents we would care to use in the future and will from now on always be recommending them to family and friends

      They're extremely approachable, friendly

      We originally purchased our property through David and Co back in 2012. We were so impressed as buyers, we decided to sell the property with them four years later. Their local knowledge, market insights and professionalism is second to none! They're extremely approachable, friendly, remarkably efficient and reliable; always responding to our calls/emails swiftly. Where we hit a few minor conveyancing hold-ups, David Coleby was very proactive in managing the relationship with our buyer, sensitively nurturing the sale along nicely. We would highly recommend David and Co. They're undoubtedly one of, if not, the best estate agent in Brighton! Once again, thank you very much for everything. Stuart and Kirsty.

      Nothing was to much trouble
      Late August 2015. I decided to put my four bed family home on the market, due to relocation. I invited 3 agents to appraise my home and give a realistic valuation. The first from a chain Asked me to value the property as in her words it's difficult with the market in the Preston park area. How much would I like to place it on the market for ??? The second David and co David, appraised and valued the property, he was informative, knowledgeable of the local market conditions. I was initially surprised at the valuation and indeed queried what I thought was a high valuation. The third valued my home £60,000 Under the achieved completion price! With David & Co. I went with David & Co They were great nothing was to much trouble, they contacted me on a daily basis almost, kept me calm throughout the sale and up to speed. From instructing David & Co to completion in a chain took 10 weeks. Brilliant. I have and would recommend the David's wholeheartedly to friends and work colleagues, without hesitation. Thanx again Kevin

      Their service was friendly and professional
      Selling my flat through David and Co. was very straight forward. Following an open day I had accepted an offer very close to the asking price within a few days. Their service was friendly and professional with excellent communication throughout.

      David & Co's professionalism shone through
      I cannot recommend David and Co more highly than I will do here. We recently successfully sold our house on Cleveland Rd in Brighton with David and Co. within three weeks of putting it on the market. We decided to use David and Co after interviews and valuations from a range of the local estate agents, because they had the expertise, great knowledge of the area and a wide client database, without the smarm of your usual estate agent. David was not pushy, especially when we were unsure whether to go ahead and in fact we waited a further six months before we finally did put the house on the market. I was very impressed and grateful for the high number of viewings which were all accompanied by David, who again, used his knowledge of the area to help the potential buyers (often from London). We had already fallen in love with another house which was on the market with a different estate agent, and the difference in professionalism between the two estate agents was vast. As you can imagine, we were desperate to get a quick sale so that we could offer on our desired house and my partner and I had a few wobbles in the 21 days. David and Co. were always on hand for counselling, reassurance and another date for a viewing! First impressions really do count for the seller and the buyer. David and Co's down to earth professionalism shone through for me, in particular the way they are estate agents without being estate agents - if you see what I mean. I would recommend their services wholeheartedly. Thanks again David and Co - we love our new house!

      would I recommend David & Co? YES!!!
      After having contacted a few local National Estate Agents to sell my late Mothers House, and not being to happy with the take it or leave it attitude, my Wife suggested that I try David & Co as they were a local independent Estate Agent - I was so glad that I took her advice. I dealt with David Coleby from the outset and he was very helpful, understanding and had lots of good advice to give, if he was not available I was soon left in no doubt that the company as a whole are very professional as any member of staff was able to help or get David to call me as soon as he was available. The sale was a bit protracted due to complications with the purchaser but all these were overcome by some very sound advice. Bottom line would I recommend David & Co? A very resounding YES!!! Thanks very much once again to all of you at David & Co.

      helpful, friendly and efficient
      We recently sold, and purchased, a property through David and Co and have nothing but good things to say.

They certainly buck the stereotype - these guys are top notch!
    • Seller Testimonial

      Thank you so much
      'David Whittle sold me my house 15 years ago, and I had no doubt that I would use him the next time I moved. I was not disappointed, as his calm professionalism made my house sale as easy as these things can be. He, and David Coleby, kept me fully informed at every stage, and worked hard on my behalf. I always felt like they had my back and were working for me. Reasonably priced, realistic, friendly, hard-working and honest. What more do you want?! Thank you so much
    • Seller Testimonial

      Amazingly friendly, honest and helpful
      In all honesty, we have never had such an amazingly friendly, honest and helpful Estate Agency. Both yourself and David are courteous, kind, honest, helpful and hard working on our behalf. David Whittle often engaged with our solicitors on our behalf in order to save us the hassle. The valuation on our house was spot-on and the proof was the fact we sold two/three times over whilst trying to find a house to buy. We couldn't have been happier with your service and wish you all the very best.
    • Seller Testimonial

      I could happily recommend them
      We bought and sold via David and Co. The main reason we decided to put our house on the market with them was their gentle professional approach. They weren't pushy and really understood our needs and the market in the area. They patiently showed us properties that realistically matched our needs. We have several viewings of our property in the first 10 days and sold within 2 weeks. They were happy to show us the property we eventually bought, several times. David and Co assisted in the negotiations and made it possible to buy and sell at the prices we needed to be able to make the move. Even though the moving experience had its predictable hold-ups, David and Co, were very good in keeping us informed and spent a lot of time and effort in keeping us up to date with proceedings. I could happily recommend them to anyone, whether buying or selling.

      the single best estate agent that we've dealt with
      David & Co are the single best estate agent that we've dealt with in Brighton. They are normal people, down to earth, fast, friendly and professional. We became actively put off properties that were with other agents once we met, and realised how great, David & Co are - we were happy to ultimately find a house that they were the agents on and we cannot recommend them enough.

      David & Co were brilliant
      David & Co were brilliant when we bought our first home in July 19. After issues with our first solicitor, they were the only ones who made themselfs available to answer questions and communicate what was going on. Further more they rescued the situation by putting us in touch with a fantastic new solicitor who got whole situation resolved very quickly and with very little stress. They always responded to an email or a phone call within an hour. We would recommend them to friends and family.

      we feel that they held the chain together
      I can't sing the praises of David (and David!) highly enough. We have recently bought through them and, even though they weren't acting for us, we feel that they held the chain together with their experience, professionalism, patience and proactivity. In a much maligned industry, sometimes perhaps fairly, we found David (and David!) to be the exception to the rule. On reflection, I just wish we'd sold with them too.

      You definitely would not get a better service
      We purchased our property through David & Co. At all times both Davids were helpful and accommodating with any questions and advice we required. We had a lot of trouble selling our house through another agent and David W, was always available to give advice and recommend some good services and trades people which helped us with our sale. If buying or selling again. I would not hesitate to use David & Co. You definitely would not get a better service anywhere else.

We would not hesitate to use them again.

      so patient. No hard sell
      We can't speak highly enough of David & Co. David Coleby was extremely helpful, so knowledgeable about the area, so patient. No hard sell, and lots of hugely useful support. As out-of-towners he really helped us get our bearings and gave us valuable local knowledge plus a recommendation for a great solicitor too. Thanks to him the whole process of finding a house and buying it went smoothly. So good to find a small independent firm rather than a chain estate agents.David &Co. Thank you!

      open, honest and transparent
      David Coleby acted as the estate agent for the property we bought. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending David (and his company) to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Brighton area; he acted with absolute integrity during the entire process, was always open, honest and transparent in his dealings and offered advice that was always incredibly helpful. David was also entirely honest and trustworthy, efficient and readily contactable. He was also a great person to deal with on a personal level and I can't recommend his services enough

      professional throughout

      David was the first estate agent I came across that wasn't pushy and telling me I had to be quick as 40 other people were looking. He was professional throughout the whole time. He would call me if they were problems on the other side and did all he could to make sure the sale went through as quickly as possible. Even even gave a lift back into Brighton

We've also sought their opinion on a number of house and flat questions over the years and they've always been generous with their time and expertise

      'David and Co were a pleasure to work

      'David and Co were a pleasure to work with from the moment we were introduced to the property to the day we exchanged. They were extremely professional and dedicated to working in the best interests of all parties. Unlike some of the bigger estate agents we have dealt with, they were honest, easy to communicate with, and took the stress out of the whole process

      they always responded to my calls promptly

      We bought through David and Co in early 2016. From the start I was impressed with both David's in terms of knowledge and breadth of experience in the area. As exchange got closer they always responded to my calls promptly, were honest in their responses (even if it meant telling me something I did not want to hear), remained calm, and cared for the whole chain of people in a way that I felt went beyond the call of duty. I would have no hesitation selling through them when the time comes - and I would recommend them wholeheartedly to my friends. They may not have the glitz of some other agents - but they more than make up for it with depth of experience and an old fashioned personal touch with I personally value highly in an expensive and stressful process.

      "David and Co are a pleasure to work with. They are prompt in their response, considerate and always calm in those last few days that can be stressful. I would thoroughly recommend them.

      We truly would not go anywhere else
      We have both bought and sold homes with David & Co and would recommend above any other estate agents we have worked with in the past. David provided excellent advice and has continued to do so when we have had need to call on him. Not only have David & Co provided an excellent service for buying and selling, both are tremendously nice to work with and skilful at smoothing troubled waters when the need arises. We truly would not go anywhere else should we move again and have recommended David & Co to several people without hesitation.
