    • Landlord Testimonial

      They are without a doubt the best estate agent... 
      I have been using Hunters for a few years, mainly as a letting agent, but also buying houses through them from time to time.They are without a doubt the best estate/letting agent I have ever used. Their attention to detail, work ethic, communications and friendly nature in particular have made my experiences with them as easy and hassle free as possible. They have definitely saved me some stress over the years!All of the staff are on the ball, up to date with everything going on and always eager to help any way they can. Karen and Karl in particular, as well as all the lettings staff have been very helpful to me, showing me a great deal of respect and going above and beyond what one would reasonably expect, in order to give me the best experience possible.Based on my experiences of buying and letting with them I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to anyone who was looking to use any of the services they provide. They have certainly helped make my life easier! - Mr Bond

      Karl and Karen have been fantastic while I have been letting properties through them. The whole team are very friendly and helpful, but perhaps even more importantly, they get things sorted as quickly as possible. It's great to know they are a phone call away whenever I have property issues. - Mrs Smith

      First Class, personal and professional service from Hunters Darwen. Thank you all. - Mrs Jones
    • Tenant Testimonial

      Absolute diamonds...!
      Absolute diamonds! Had a very rough time with another well known local estate agent, came to Hunters and got a good, honest service (something of which is in very short supply). We had a very short window to find another property but they managed to turn it around smoothly and efficiently. They kept us involved and the communication was fantastic. Don't let how easy they make it look fool you, they work hard to ensure its the right fit for the person(s) wanting the property. A big thanks from new happy renters! - Mr Cox

    • paragraph

      Technology & Marketing
      Nobody does it better! Whilst we understand the huge importance of personal service and expert local knowledge is an essential part of our customer needs, we make sure that the latest technology is used to provide our customers the best marketing platform for their property. From professional photography, accurate floorplans, interactive window showing your property as a feature home 24/7 and now the exceptional 3D virtual tour facility, we ensure your property receives the best possible exposure.

      3D Virtual Tours. Using the latest cutting edge technology provided by Matterport we allow buyers & tenants the ability to immerse themselves.

      This is next generation immersive media for the property industry.

      Hunters Estate Agents and Letting Agents Darwen are excited to announce the introduction of the Matterport 3D Showcase, a completely new form of immersive 3D media that invites you to explore a place as if you were really there. This will give you a total sense of how a home fits together.

      We use the cutting edge technology to capture colour and depth and then use powerful cloud processing to quickly make immersive digital experiences out of real-world environments. Using the Dollhouse View and a Floor Plan view the 3D Showcase easily allow the viewer to navigate their way entirely through a property, using only their mouse, keyboard or finger on smartphones and tablets.

      Photo galleries, 360° panoramas, and fly-through videos can lack the perspective and feel that home buyers and sellers crave. The 3D Showcase uses the very latest technology to capture fully responsive property tours that work seamlessly on mobiles, tablets and computers with load times rendering very quickly.

      Interested in how our Matterport 3D Showcase will enhance your agency's marketing potential?
