Thinking of Buying
  • paragraph

    We've been helping people buy for over 30 years

    We at Stevens are respected for our approachable, friendly yet professional manner - you will not get the hard sell, pushy agent approach here! We know how stressful buying a property can be and it is our aim to smooth this process for you.

    It's not all about hitting sales targets, we all live in the area and community and that is why we love being able to share our knowledge and passion for the area with you.

    Our friendly team understand that buying a house is both an exciting experience and a daunting one and too often an agents focus is solely on the seller, thus leaving the buyer to fend for themselves.

    We look at things differently and see you as a potential neighbour, rather than a potential buyer. Whether it's sound financial information you need or merely a recommendation for a good plumber, our advice is always current and always objective.

    So whether you are a first time buyer feeling a little out of your depth or a seasoned mover, you have our full attention and we aim to give you the best experience possible.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      Kept me informed throughout the sale
      Having made the decision to relocate I looked for a company with experience, good local knowledge, an accessible office and people with a positive attitude. Stevens ticked all boxes. The sales teams support, commitment, and attention to detail was second to none. My designated agent, Gary, especially made sure feedback and updates were regular and he would go above and beyond to ensure the best service was given, even altering time off to progress the situation. I was also offered useful local advice on removals, storage and if needed short term lets. A sometimes difficult and stressful process was efficiently handled resulting in a successful outcome. Mrs Anne B.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Thoroughly recommended
      Having moved on a number of occasions within the Henfield area and I have always valued the services provided by Stevens estate agents. Working with an agent who demonstrates professionalism, superior knowledge of the local property markets and excellent customer services are all qualities that I have become used to in working with Stevens estate agents. I have recommended Stevens estate agents to friends, family, and colleagues and would have no trouble doing so again in the future

      Mr R Slaughter
    • Seller Testimonial

      Great Work!
      "Thank you Gary for the work you put into our house sale. My wife and I know it turned quite complex in the downstream chain and it was due to Gary's perseverance that our sale completed. We were always impressed by Gary's knowledge and honesty and would happily use Stevens again." Mr H. Walker
    • Seller Testimonial

      Could not have asked for a better service.
      A brief email to express my thanks to you for all your help with the sale. I could not have asked for a better service especially as you have always responded quickly to queries that have arisen and dealt with everything in an efficient, personable and professional manner. If only all Estate Agents (and solicitors!) could be like you ! I hope the market picks up soon. Kind regards. Mike
    • Seller Testimonial

      Professional and Extremely Efficient
      Over the past 16 months I have brought three properties and sold two with Stevens estate agents and have found them to be kind, professional and extremely efficient. I would definitely use them again and recommend them to my friends. Mrs Julia H.
    • Seller Testimonial

    • Seller Testimonial

      Very Good at Keeping us Informed
      My wife and I decided to put our house on the market in March of 2017. Kevin had previously visited, and given us a valuation for a sale price, together with advice on what range to seriously consider offers. I had bought the property in 2000, when Stevens were the agents, and I knew that Stevens had a better handle on the market than any other of the agents in the area. Gary took the main responsibility for the sale. During the "For Sale" period, he was very good at keeping us informed of developments, always got back to us with any queries, and was successful in gaining a buyer. We moved into our new home in October, and are extremely happy with our home. Well done Gary, Kevin and all the team at Stevens. Mr G. P-B
    • Seller Testimonial

      your communication was excellent
      Tina and I just wanted to drop you a note to say many thanks for all your hard work and efforts in selling our property. When I first met you, you realised that I had had a very poor experience with a previous Estate Agent and assured me that this experience would not be repeated through Stevens... You were right, the process was smooth, your communication was excellent and you took point on all matters to bring us through to a successful exchange. I regret not coming to you (Stevens) in the first instance and would certainly not make that mistake again. I will certainly be recommending Stevens going forward as the whole end to end experience has been actually quite painless. Many Thanks again Best Wishes JB & T

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      Kept in Regular contact
      Having recently [Oct'17] purchased our property via Stevens Estate Agents, we were really pleased with the service throughout the entire process. During our property search, Gary made a great effort selling in the features of prospective properties as opposed to just letting us in to look around. Once the purchase got underway Gary and Carolynne kept in regular communication with all parties and really got things moving when responses from solicitors had slowed down. They kept the sale on track and we are very happy with our new home. Thank you Stevens. Sam C.
    • Buyer Testimonial

      You went the extra mile!

       I would just like to thank the team for your patience & persistence in finally getting my sale & purchase through. You went 'the extra mile' & more for both myself & my 'chain' & without your huge efforts, it would all have ended in tears! In the event, we are all safely settled in our respective new homes & looking forward to 'first Christmas'. Well done!!

      Ms E Taylor

    • Buyer Testimonial

      Your help and kindness

      Just to say thank you ... The move was all made so much easier for us by your help and kindness throughout the whole process. We are missing our chats and visits so when we are sorted I hope you will come and have a cup of coffee and see us finally installed.

      Your customer service has been outstanding

      I just wanted to write a little note to say a big 'Thank you' for all your help with buying ..., without all your extra help the sale would have never gone through.

      Having moved over 7 times in the last 10 years, I have dealt with many Estate Agents and you were by far the best and certainly went the 'extra mile'

      Your customer service has been outstanding so thank you once again.
