    Why use M and M

    Moving home is one of the biggest decisions you make and as an independent, local agency we offer a flexible, personal service to suit you which many larger companies can not, and a proven track record that newer agents in the town do not. Our professional skilled sales team are committed to ensuring you achieve the best possible sale price for your property as swiftly, and as straightforwardly, as possible.

    We are a totally independent estate agent run and staffed by conscientious, experienced people with excellent local knowledge, who are dedicated to selling your home, and will be able to guide you through every aspect of your sale. With a lettings office set up in 1986 and the sales office established in 1995, we have been moving people in and around Leighton Buzzard for almost thirty years.

    Estate Agency is a largely unregulated industry, but here at M&M we are licensed by the National Association of Estate Agents and are members of The Property Ombudsman Scheme, ensuring that we are totally professional, honest and accountable at all times.


    And remember ......we are the only agent to give £200 cash back on the day of completion! (see t's and c's)

      Dear Andy,

      Thank you very much for all your help over this property. We both thought your professionalism at the viewing stage and your extra work in the investigations you did could not be faulted.

      no hesitation recommending you

      Dear Kate

      Just a quick note to thank you for your help and assistance during the sale of my property. I think many people are quick to complain when things go wrong but slow to give credit when it is due. Your professionalism was much appreciated and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to friends and family.

    • Seller Testimonial

      Credit to the industry!

      Dear Mike

      I am delighted to write to you to say a big thank you for the hard work undertaken by your staff in the sale of my property.

      Andy spent a lot of time with me initially to ensure the best opportunities were promoted fully in order to sell my flat. He was very personable, knowledgeable and gave me excellent advice which proved to be spot on; especially when remarketing my flat.

      Justine conducted all the viewings and clearly her personality and professional manner ensured the initial buyer, and a potential three more the second time around!

      Kate spent a lot of her time enquiring and chasing, and keeping the momentum going in the final sale.

      I came to M & M as a result of your reputation in the area, and Andy, Justine & Kate are a credit to the industry and to your company.

      Yours sincerely

      Mr F

      Generous Support

      Dear Mr Ryan

      I just wanted to say thank you for your very generous support of our recent school Christmas fair. The donation of advertising space on your for sale boards was very kind and I am sure in part contributed to making our school fair the most successful yet. It was wonderful to see M and M properties supporting a local school. We hope to work with you again when embarking on future fundraising opportunities.

      Dear Kate

      Please pass on my heartfelt thanks to Justine too. It's been a considerably stressful two years, and the mortgage decline just felt like the end of the world. Thanks for helping me to see that it really wasn't. Thanks also for helping to sort things out, whether we get the mortgage or not, at least I now know that there are some people in your profession that do a very good job... I'll tell all my friends!
