    THE WEST COUNTRY IS STAGS COUNTRY

The office was opened in 1999 and has a flourishing estate agents team and an established lettings department. The Professional Services department can also be found here, giving expert advice on all planning, estate management and rural business issues, as well as carrying out professional valuations for probate, matrimonial disputes and inheritance tax to name but a few.

    Headed by Stags Partner, Ben Stephens, the office covers a wide geographical area ranging from the Padstow on the North Coast to Fowey on the South Coast and all points West!

      Great experience with Stags in Truro. Mel & Ben were on the ball with arranging viewings and answering any questions I had during the house selling process.

    • Seller Testimonial

      Truly amazing from start to finish.
      Ian, Wayne and Ben have been truly amazing from start to finish of marketing and quickly selling our property. They have been exceptional in communicating relevant information/changes to us and remained professional at all times. During the COVID lockdown it was still business as usual and this helped with any additional anxieties we felt regarding moving and completing on the sale. We have bought a number of properties and have never experienced service of this quality and to this extent. Thank you all.

      I could not praise the team at Stags enough.
      Stags recently completed the sale of our home. I could not praise the team at Stags enough for the way the sale was handled. We needed to sell quickly to be able to buy a house we desired, we have achieved this but not without the professionalism and commitment from all involved at Stags. A big thank you to Ben and his team for an excellent job done.
