    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!

He has enjoyed working in numerous towns and villages across Kent, from The Weald to Ashford and Canterbury then up to Rochester and Faversham, working his way quickly to branch manager. In 2006 he won an annual award for the most profitable branch (in the Kent, Sussex and Essex region) whilst working for what was then the largest national estate agency in the country, an achievement he is most proud of to this day.

At home he enjoys spending time with his wife, children and three dogs, along with mountain biking and playing tennis at the local club. He says he would like to think he can still use his skateboard, but in reality the fear of broken bones ensures that it sadly gathers dust in the shed!

    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

      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.
