Why Choose Sewell & Gardner New Homes? 
  • paragraph

    With a dedicated Land & New Homes department, we understand and appreciate the work which goes into Land Acquisition and property development. The majority of local agents will sell new homes, however they don't always understand the entire process. At Sewell & Gardner, we can offer you a complete in-house service without having to source information from elsewhere.

    We have sold over 75 sites and schemes over the past 13 years, achieving a GDV of over £125 million. We can provide a tailor made service which works perfectly for you. We have worked with small, first time developers who need a full understanding of the process, to larger National developers who already have a sales team in place. We can work together with the sales team, or be your sales team. Ultimately, we want to ensure the site is stress free and highly successful. We are knowledgeable and confident in all levels of the market, from studio apartments to luxurious seven bedroom homes. We have experienced all different markets, from the hard recession years of 2007 and 2008, to the almost 10% increases in the market of 2014 & 2015.

Why Buy New?
  • paragraph

    New homes are designed to fit around you and your family's life. You will find well designed new build homes that are smart with space, offering flexible and happy living spaces. A new home is your freshly painted blank canvas. Some developers may offer you a choice on your new kitchen, bathrooms and flooring that you can personalise to your needs and taste. Even if the house is complete most builders will have had expert advice on those interior fittings which would have been selected from the latest ranges and will be of a high specification.

    Whether it's hot or always cold outside your new home will keep you happy all year round. Your lower heating bills should give you a warm glow too with the benefit of the latest heating systems, double glazed windows and installation methods used in new homes. New homes are now, on average, roughly 50% more cost efficient and 65% more energy efficient than Victorian ones and use 30% less water than older properties.* Purchasing a new home also gets rid of the stress of repairs and renovations. Everything in a new home has been built to last, from the foundations up. So even in five years' time, you shouldn't be spending your weekends doing those frustrating odd jobs. Most British house builders also provide purchasers with a 10-year structural warranty, which could be NHBC or BLP. Many of these developers also offer a separate cover for the first 2 years of residing in the property, which provides you with a guarantee should anything require repairing.

    Alex Sewell- Managing Director
    I was the last of the Sewell family to get involved in property and now I live and breathe it! In 2002 my brother called me and said he was opening an estate agency and did I want to come and run it, now nearly 16 years later I am running the 2012, 2013 & 2014 Sunday Times Best Small Estate Agency in the East of England. Quite an achievement I think! My business philosophies are to keep it simple, treat the customers like you would expect to be treated yourself and provide simple, professional and honest advice.

    Raj Khatri- Property Consultant
    Having spent a considerable sum of my adult life working within the property industry, I can safely say that what was once upon a time job has now become a passion. Prior to joining the Sewell & Gardner team in the Watford office, I was working for an independent agency based in North London. I have a firm belief that one reaps what they sow & I always give customers and clients alike an empathic service. I live in Watford with my wife and daughter and have an intimate knowledge of Watford and the surrounding areas. I was recently given the chance to move across to our thriving New Homes department and am relishing the opportunity to sell brand new developments in the surrounding area.

    Anna Barrett- Land Assistant
    I started working for Sewell & Gardner early in 2017, I started as a Property Consultant in our Rickmansworth sales team. Having gained vital experience in this role, I have recently moved over to the Land Department. Although similar in some aspects, it has been a challenge learning the way the Land Department functions but I am enjoying it very much. I have been able to use the communication and rapport building skills I have built in the sales department and use them when talking to developers about potential sites. In my short time within the department I have been involved in numerous site acquisitions and disposals with many more in the pipeline.

      I would wholeheartedly recommend their service
      I have been working with Sewell & Gardner estate agents for the last 5 years and have found them to be the most passionate agents I have had the pleasure of dealing with. This summer we have had another successful launch reserving all of the next phase of our Bushey development off plan, I have no doubt the successful sales rate is because of their enthusiasm for the work they do and the excellent rapport they have with their applicants. 

      The current site is the third site I have had the pleasure of marketing through Sewell & Gardner and would wholeheartedly recommend their services to others because they understand the difference in selling new build properties and are constantly searching for new land sites for us to acquire.

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      They are exceptional!
      I have moved house on a number of occasions and have been hugely impressed with the estate agents we have encountered along the way. However, special mention certainly needs to be made of Sewell Gardner. Where do I begin? They are exceptional! I was most impressed with the way they handled my recent purchase in terms of regular updates, answering my numerous questions, communicating with the solicitors, negotiating with the house builder and applying gentle pressure to expediate the transaction. I have never experienced customer service on this level and on top of that a lovely gift arrived from Sewell Gardner a few days after moving into our new home!

      Helpful and professional manner
      The kindness, consideration and helpfulness we received was so very much appreciated. I was always greeted with a happy, helpful and professional manner. Without Emily's persistence and dedication we are most certain we would not have been able to move in to our property on the date agreed by all members of the chain. We have never come across such a lovely, empathetic person in dealing with a house move before.

    • Buyer Testimonial

      They really stood out from the other agents
      Sewell & Gardner provided me with every help and advice that was needed to conclude our purchase. They really stood out from the other agents we have dealt with by always keeping in contact and reverting with answers to our questions without having to be prompted or chased. A very professional team no matter who I spoke to.
