Foundation Estate Agents
  • paragraph

    Foundation Estate Agents are an Independent Estate Agency whose ethos is to offer exceptional customer service, extremely high quality marketing and true value for money. The company was founded in 2007 and has steadily grown, enjoying an excellent reputation for selling quality homes across East Kent.

    We are committed to delivering the very highest standards of service and believe very firmly in traditional values, such as always calling you when we say we will and making sure our clients are kept completely up to date.

    Our office is located just off the Brenley junction at Boughton-under-Blean. This give us excellent access to Faversham, Canterbury, Whitstable and the rest of East Kent via the A2, A299 and M2 and allows us to cover an incredibly large geographical area. As a result our experienced team has both an outstanding market knowledge of East Kent and a huge range of good quality buyers, whom we can approach regarding your property.

    We believe very strongly in supporting the local communities which we work within. For many years now we have made a donations to local schools and have so far donated in excess of £47,000. Schools often form the centre of a village or town community and by supporting them we feel we are helping to support local communities across East Kent.

    London Buyers

    In recent years there has been a dramatic increase in buyer migration to this area from London. This is due to our excellent road and rail links to the capital and the comparative value for money that property in East Kent offers.

    Therefore, to truly maximise your chances of selling, we know just how important it is that we reach these buyers.

    Through our central London office, situated in Park Lane, we are able to display all of our properties to discerning London buyers. This prestigious office has a full complement of staff and external touch screen televisions, enabling potential buyers to access all of the properties offered by Guild members, across the entire country.

    We also regularly advertise in the Living South Resident magazine which is a highly regarded lifestyle magazine, hand delivered to discerning households throughout the affluent south east London boroughs such as East and West Dulwich. This enjoys a regular readership in excess of 76,000, with over 80% of its readers either senior professionals or working within professional management. In addition, the Guilds own property magazine is produced regularly and gives our properties exposure into South London.

    Accompanied Viewings
    image cannot be displayed


    For some people, the thought of showing a complete stranger around their home can be a little daunting. For others it may be the pressures of work or a busy family life that makes accommodating viewers difficult. But, whatever the reason, at Foundation we are only too happy to help and firmly believe in accompanying our viewing appointments.

    Furthermore, we passionately believe that as a result of accompanying our viewings we are able to arrange considerably more sales, as this helps us to far better understand the requirements of our buyers.

    It means that someone with years of experience in dealing with both people and property will always be on hand to ease any concerns and overcome any objections that a buyer may have.

    But, if that property really doesn't suit that particular buyer, we are also in the right place at the right time to suggest alternatives that may be more appropriate. We know that we won't win them all - but sometimes just having us there can make all the difference!

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      a beacon amongst estate agents

      Mr & Mrs B - Boughton

      Steve and I wanted to send a heartfelt THANK YOU to you all for the friendly, professional and exceptional service you provided - a beacon amongst estate agents. We will continue to recommend you to everyone we know.

    • Seller Testimonial

      you operate an unusually high quality service

      Mrs B - St Nicholas-At-Wade

      Dear Kelvin & Jason, Many thanks for all you did to sell our house in St. Nicholas. As we so nearly bought a house with you as well initially you were the only experience I had of working with estate agents. Once I started looking elsewhere I soon came to realise that your service was so much better than the others. You were the only ones to take us around the properties, and the only ones to follow up each visit. You were also very understanding when we changed our minds about the property in Staplestreet, and at all times stood back and just let us make up our own minds. You remained helpful right up until the moving day, and now I learn you have donated some of the profits to the local primary school. Basically I am a very satisfied customer, I think you operate an unusually high quality service and of course I will recommend you to anyone I know who is thinking of moving.

    • Seller Testimonial

      you have triumphed where others before you failed

      Ms S - Ickham

      It's sold! Congratulations - you have triumphed where others before you failed!! Really to say thank you very much for all your efforts and patience - not only with the purchaser, but also with the Vendors. It was a pleasure to do business with you. With best wishes.

      you have all been very helpful and pro active

      Mr L & Mrs G - Dunkirk

      Firstly can we just say a very big thank you to yourself and the "Foundation" team for all you have done to enable us to purchase Courtenay Rd. It really is appreciated and you have all been very helpful and pro active which we cannot say about our own estate agent. Hopefully we won't, but if we ever decide to move again you will be the first we call and we will certainly recommend you to others.
