The Team At Philip Jarvis Estate Agent
  • Introduction

    Philip Jarvis BSc (Hons) MNAEA MARLA
    image cannot be displayed

    Philip studied Economics at Loughborough University and started working as an estate agent soon after completing his degree in 1993. He has worked in many areas of Kent and has been in the Lenham and surrounding areas for the last twenty years.

    In 2008, Philip started his own business in Lenham, using his 25 years worth of estate agency experience. The company has grown and now employs a team of seven staff who fully support him in the development of the company.

    What is important.... "Doing what you say you are going to do! There is nothing more frustrating than someone saying they are going to do something , whether it is providing a service or doing a job, and then failing to do so. I pride myself on getting the job done to the very best of my ability and looking at the bigger picture in terms of the customer service I provide. I encourage my staff to do the same."

    "My family are of course a priority for me and I enjoy spending as much time with them as possible."

    Hobbies - "I have always enjoyed running and love cross country running with my daughters at the weekends. The gym has also become a priority as I have got older which now even includes yoga classes and bootcamp too!"

    Faye has been working in the property industry for over fifteen years. She has a solid grounding in all roles within the business and has gained her experience across the region including Maidstone, Headcorn and Staplehurst to name but a few.

    What is important .... "I strongly believe in treating people as I would like to be treated myself. As the cliche goes, you must always put the customer first, and this remains our priority. I also believe successful businesses are made by the owners of the company rolling up their sleeves and leading from the front and this is what both Phil and I will always do. Outside of work, our family is clearly the most important thing. Our three children are our priority - the business is our fourth child!"

    Hobbies - "I love to do yoga in my spare time - good for body and soul! Other hobbies include bootcamp, art and driving...my children to various clubs mainly. I'm sure many other parents can empathise with this particular 'hobby'. Oh, and a good red wine while reading a superb autobiography."

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      ...personal service offered by your firm.

      Having now completed the sale of our Harrietsham property and purchase of a bungalow in Kingswood, I would like to express our appreciation of the very personal service offered by your firm. You have always been ready to offer your support and advice at what can be a very stressful time - Thankyou.

      You will recall that having initially placed the sale of the Harrietsham property with you, we subsequently decided to transfer the Agency to a larger 'chain' in the hope that this would result in an increased level of enquiries. This was not to be and we realised that the personal touch and level of commitment was not there. And so ,with some embarrassment, we returned to 'Philip Jarvis' a firm with personnel that treated us as friends and made great efforts in marketing - with the result that our property was sold. Thank you. - Mr & Mrs Amor

    • Seller Testimonial

      ...honest and reliable throughout.

      From the start I was made to feel that I could trust the sale of my property entirely to Phil and his team, they have been honest and reliable through out, which for a lady on her own is something that I value highly, and rare in the world of Estate Agents. The sale has come with lots of complications but this has never phased Phil, he has gone above and beyond what I expected, even ringing out of hours on a regular basis to update me, or just to make sure I was OK. Thank you Phil you have been fantastic and I would recommend you to anyone else that was thinking of moving, I couldn't have done this without you. - Ms Holbrook

    • Seller Testimonial

      ... we would not hesitate to recommend them ...

      While our chain was not a long one, it did have its share of challenges. It was when things got difficult that we truly appreciated how good Philip and his team are at their jobs. Of all the people involved, including solicitors, mortgage lenders and other estate agents, Philip and his team were the only people who left us feeling our property transaction was as important to them as it was to us.

      They did not only manage the transaction of the sale of our property, for which they were contracted, but also took an active role in chasing the progress of our purchase as well, an activity that they had no obligation to support. When we worried, they cared and throughout the process they continually provided both us and our buyers, with up to date information on the status of the entire chain. This information enabled everyone to maintain confidence that the transaction would complete, even when issues arose.

      We firmly believe that the skills of Philip and his team made a major contribution to completing a property chain that could of otherwise collapsed. They are professional, effective and a pleasure to deal with and we would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone considering selling their property. - Mr & Mrs Merryweather
