A rare breed of estate agent
Our Sales and Lettings department is managed by Andy Lees. As a second-generation Partner, Andy has helped Graves Son & Pilcher build a reputation for professionalism and superior service. Guiding each client through the sales process from instruction to completion, he guarantees results.
Believing in quality over quantity, we choose to work with a smaller register of properties than other local agents. It is not about the highest valuation or the lowest commission; we focus instead on securing the best possible price for our seller and finding the perfect home for our buyer.
We attribute our strong sales to Andy’s knowledge of the local housing market and his expert advice on how best to promote your property. Always keeping you informed and providing honest feedback after viewings, Andy’s friendly and proactive approach is a refreshing change from your typical agent.
Location counts and the Graves Son & Pilcher offices occupy a coveted position where the Old Steyne meets East Street, providing maximum exposure for your property. We deal with all types of residence from Regency seafront mansions to terraced houses in the North Laine and flats in managed blocks.
We provide clients with a comprehensive appraisal including an accurate valuation based on current market conditions. Having been established since 1897, Graves Son & Pilcher are regarded as local experts. We appreciate that your home is likely to be your most valuable asset and we promote it using property portals, local press, our own website and window displays. We make the selling process as stress-free as possible.Browse properties
