    Success From The Start

    "The business started from a modest beginning and we were determined to focus on all the aspects of Estate Agency we held dear - customer service, hands-on approach, value for money.

    We opened our office in Hessle in April 1999 and with a lot of hard work and determination it has grown. We have developed a highly successful Lettings Agency alongside the Property Sales Agency borne with the same ethos of highly professional personal service and our Landlords seem to like what we are doing.

    We were very proud to open our second office in Elloughton on January 2nd 2003. The response of the local community has been terrific, we often are thanked for the courteous and highly efficient service given to both vendors and purchasers". - Philip Bannister, Director

    Matthew Holmes - Branch Manager & Valuer
    Always having a keen interest in the property industry I decided against the University route and to just start my career from the bottom. I joined a local Estate Agent firm in 2007 as a trainee and learnt the foundations very quickly whilst enhancing my skills through level 2 and 3 NVQ in Residential Property Sales. After the retirement of once of the Senior Partners at the firm I then took up the responsibility of managing the full property stock. In 2011 I made the switch to Philip Bannister & Co to progress my career further in a more sales focused environment and I am now Branch Manager of our Elloughton office.

    I am the longest serving member of staff at Philip Bannister & Co. I met Phil when he came to value our house (and Yes he did Sell it). I started work in the Hessle Office and then moved to Elloughton Office on its opening. I am now in my 14th year with the company. I thoroughly enjoy all aspects of my sales consultant role and have met some wonderful people in the process. We are a friendly, skilled and happy team and it is nice to know that the values Mo and Phil hold dear are important to the team too. I look forward to seeing clients old and new in our offices.

    I am the newest member of the sales team at the Elloughton office but in the short time I have been here I have been made to feel very welcome and already feel part of the 'family'. I have been employed for a number of years in Estate Agency dealing with both Sales and Lettings, working previously for an Independent agent and more recently a Corporate company. In that time I have gained a wealth of experience and knowledge which I am keen to put into practise in my role as Sales Consultant and I am delighted to be working once again for a friendly, family run company.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      A team that go the extra mile
      From the moment Matthew stepped through the door to value my property I felt I was in safe and professional hands. The team at Bannisters in Elloughton are like an extended family, caring and always professional in all contact with me. All in all a great experience, really would recommend Bannisters, especially if you want a team with that difference who will go the extra mile.
    • Seller Testimonial

      A fantastic company
      What a fantastic company from valuation stage to contract stage. We were thrilled to sell within a few weeks, mainly due to an excellent advert put together including a video which really sold our property to the highest degree. Matthew was an excellent ambassador and gave us a lot of confidence. Communication throughout the process was second to none through Nan and Jude, they gave such a personal service even our buyers were very happy with their help throughout. So pleased we used Bannister and in my opinion they are head and shoulders above any other estate agent.
    • Seller Testimonial

      A pleasure to work with
      Just a note to thank everyone in the Elloughton office for their help with my sale recently. Nan and Jude, you have been a pleasure to work with, always friendly and professional. Your advice has been invaluable.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Sold almost overnight
      Matthew and his Team at Elloughton are amazing. Sold my house almost overnight for me with no hassle (for me) whatsoever. Professional to the core. Strong communication flow. Would highly recommend them to anyone. Special thanks to Jude Fischer.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Thanks for getting us though the finishing tape!!
      Hi Jennie and the team, A quick note to say thanks for all your hard work during the sale of our bungalow. It was a touch and go towards the end but thanks for getting us though the finishing tape!! You kept us in touch throughout and acted very professional! I would recommend your company without a second thought. Many Thanks Mark Hague - October 2015, West Hull (Vendor) 
    • Seller Testimonial

      Would not hesitate to recommend
      The staff at Bannisters could not have looked after us any better and they provided us with good quality viewers which resulted in a sale first time! Very friendly and Nan kept in touch through thick and thin and in a constantly changing world this is all you can ask for. Would not hesitate to recommend then to sell your property. Thank you again It has been great to get to know you all.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Stress free selling
      I was more than satisfied with the service I received from all at Philip Bannisters. Feedback from viewers was chased up and fed back to us promptly, and as well as dealing with our sale we also appreciated the advice given to any questions we had around our purchase.. I have sold one house before and it was a stressful experience dealing with our estate agent on that occasion, but not this time - Philip Bannisters made the process as stress free as it can be.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Highly recommended
      We recently sold our beautiful rural home to downsize to an equally interesting new build. The service we received during the sale process was second to none (unusual we thought for an estate agent)! From the beginning of the process to the very end, at which point a few difficulties arose, the Bannister team were excellent in every way easing us through with their knowledge of the market, experience, advice and utter professionalism throughout. They kept us well informed of the decisions of prospective buyers - even when the news was not as we hoped. Staff always rang at the times they had promised and when exchange of contract had taken place we knew within minutes. We can only praise their teamwork, easy and pleasant communication and their support through the ups and downs inevitable in the house selling process. In short they made it as stress free as possible. We highly recommend their service.
