As a firm we pride ourselves on our honest and traditional approach to estate agency. Our enthusiastic team work hard to provide clients with a highly professional and personal service based on the core traditional values of a family run business, as well as looking to offer a proactive modern day approach to estate agency.

Our team of local experts are committed to providing a personal and professional service tailored to meet client’s requirements taking advantage of our strong personal affinity to the town and the surrounding area.

Our reputation and professionalism has won us the coveted membership of The Guild of Property Professional status for the area. As an experienced local agent delivering a great service, we share The Guild’s core values of knowledge, integrity and results.

Our connection means we work alongside over 800 other independent agents across the network meaning that buyers and sellers looking to move out of the area can be referred to fellow Guild members creating a proactive network aimed to maximise our client’s exposure. The Guild of Property Professionals enable us to use the Park Lane, London office showing our properties in their window and having a knowledgeable member of staff within the office itself.

‘Whilst writing, I would just like to say how very impressed I have been of Arkwright’s presentation and professionalism in everything you have done for me, especially compared with other Estate Agents I have been in contact with. I noticed the way you introduce yourselves to clients and make sure you familiarise yourselves with the homes you present to prospective clients. I would have no hesitation of in recommending Arkwright’s to anyone who might ask me. Thank you.!’
