  • paragraph

    Based in the Heart of Hertford
    At Simply Homes, we want to create a tailor-made, individual marketing strategy that exactly suits each Client's requirements.

    We set out to show how individual and attractive every one of our properties for sale is and we always achieve success with the result our Client needs.

    Just take a look at the photography of our presentations to see how well your property could be seen by potential buyers.

    We give accurate and comprehensive valuations that genuinely reflect the current market trends.

    After all, what's the point of giving an inflated valuation only to see it not sell and reduce the price at a later date?

    Ben Shaw - Director
    image cannot be displayed

    Having been at Simply Homes since it's inception in 2010 I am overjoyed to have achieved my dream of taking over ownership of the business which I am so passionate about.

    I have been applying my ideas and changes since the takeover back in June 2018 and I am glad to say that we have taken the business to the next level. I live only 3 miles from my office, with my wife, young daughter and son.

    With my wealth of knowledge of the local area and a wide spectrum of experience within the property market I base my sales success on providing accurate valuations, focussed energetic marketing, and great customer service to vendors and purchasers.

    The result ....... Guaranteed sales! My passion for photography and eye for detail makes your property stand out above the rest. My expertise covers all aspects including lifestyle, twilight, and aerial shots, ensuring I, alongside my camera man, capture your home in every light and show it to it's absolute best potential.

    Committed to selling your property for the best price, I am willing to go above and beyond to achieve that for you, and will always make myself available, delivering regular updates and a personal service from start to finish.

    George Marks
    George is the latest addition to the Simply Homes team, and we are incredibly excited to get him up to speed with the high standards expected at Simply Homes. Having lived in Hertford his whole life, starting his education at Duncombe School, then moving onto Richard Hale, George is a true 'Hertford Boy' and incredibly passionate about the Town.

    He began his career in teaching, taking on the role of PE teacher at a local Hertford Primary school and then moving onto Sales in Recruitment. He is still incredibly passionate about his physical fitness and attends the gym regularly, making the rest of us feel guilty first thing in the morning after he arrives to the office having already completed a hard workout!

    George is a bright, hard working and above all else, conscientious young man with an incredible drive, we expect that his most recent years and experience in the employment sector will transfer over to a long and fruitful career in the property market, resulting in many, many sales for our vendors.

    Lauren Shaw
    I started my estate agent journey at Simply Homes in 2013 as a Saturday member of the team, using the extra money to buy our first home, alongside my full-time job in fashion buying. I worked as a fashion buyer for eight years using my creative flair dealing with and building relationships with suppliers all over the world. I left when I became a Mum and have worked 2/3 days a week at Simply Homes since. In June 2018 my husband, Ben, and I took over the business. Using my creativity, I look after the marketing side of the business; Creating new branding to take Simply Homes forward as a company. Having moved house four times in four years, I have a good understanding of the process and having lived in Hertford all my life I have excellent local knowledge.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      kept us updated throughout
      Brilliant estate agent - sold our property which had been on the market for a while (with a different agent) within a few weeks had a good amount of viewings and several offers. Ben was brilliant - very easy to communicate with and kept us updated throughout the sale process. Have just completed on our sale now and would definitely use Simply Homes again in the future (not that we are planning to move any time soon!). Would highly recommend.
    • Seller Testimonial

      AND YES IT DID SELL IN 3 WEEKS.
      We had Simply Homes sell our house, we thought it would take ages, when we agreed to using Simply Homes from the 5 agents we had come to give us a valuation, we were told it would take just 3 weeks there about to sell. I have bought and sold many houses over the last 40 years, but have not had such good service as I have with Simply Homes. Ben was great with the sale, good communication with all parties involved and friendly with it. AND YES IT DID SELL IN 3 WEEKS. Well done great team work all of you, should I ever move again I would definitely go back to them. Thanks all of you Rose and Stephanie
