How much is my property worth?
Our valuation process starts here in the office. We use a number of online agency resources, along with our own archive of sold properties, to fully research your property and gather recent comparable properties. Partners of Chantries, Anthony Brown and Chris Dean, will then come to meet with you at your home and present this research to you, along with their appraisal of your property. They will offer an in-depth strategy along with honest advice on value and how best to market your property to achieve the best possible results... Request a Valuation.
Local team, Local knowledge
All of our team live in Guildford and have worked locally for a combined 65 years. We know Guildford like the back of our hands, and having extensive knowledge of the local area and market enables us to get outstanding results for our clients. Knowledge of the various micro-markets that makeup the Guildford property scene gives us a deeper understanding and allows us to make those all-important connections that go beyond conventional estate agency. Despite all the advances in technology, this business is still very much a people business and local knowledge is often the difference between success and failure. Local Areas
By offering local sellers and buyers the opportunity to sign up to this specialised service, we are collecting priceless information about off-market properties and motivated, good quality buyers. We have a database of local properties which are not yet on the open market which we can “match” to local buyers who chose not to be bombarded by most estate agents who simply send buyers everything in their price range. Our local knowledge allows us to identify the key requirements of those who have specific search criteria, whether it be a certain school catchment, development potential or the ideal low maintenance downsize.
By offering prospective home owners incentives to register with Chantries, including access to “discreetly marketed” properties and priority viewings for new instructions, we are able to work closely with good-quality buyers who prefer to remain nameless and unbothered by most estate agents whilst looking remotely online. The importance of this is that we can engage with them, understand their needs, advise them and actively sell the benefits of a particular property as opposed to simply waiting passively for Rightmove to deliver enquiries.

Our beautiful office in Mill Lane, Guildford, occupies a convenient position with plenty of footfall, just off the High Street, ensuring your property will get noticed. Within its Georgian walls, it has a contemporary feel which reflects our modern approach. We have an inviting seating area in the front office as well as a more private meeting room, allowing you to discuss business and property-related matters in a relaxed yet professional environment.
Guildford is a destination of choice for people moving out of London and often the starting point for their property search. Many looking in the wider Guildford area will start their search in the town centre, as quite often people are simply too ‘time-poor’ to travel around the outlying villages to register with local estate agents there. In so doing, this makes other agents increasingly irrelevant whilst boosting our own profile as a regional property hub. In addition, we open 6 days a week and carry out viewings outside of our typical opening hours, meaning we take full advantage of any opportunity to market your property.
Contemporary marketing is essential to our business. From branding to advertising, from how our office looks to the bespoke brochures we produce using floor plans, professional photography, drone shots and aerial images, as well as through our online presence and the use of social media platforms, we are committed to constantly evolving our marketing approach to ensure your property is shown to maximum advantage. The benefits are greater awareness and better results for both our clients and us.
Along with a substantial, recent investment in our website, our social media presence and listings on the relevant portals, we have a strong online presence. With over 80% of all property searches beginning online, presence is hugely important when it comes to marketing but in an already overcrowded market there is, in our view, a need to go even further in order to differentiate your property. Chantries.net continues to develop to become a valuable resource for anyone looking to buy or rent property by providing additional information about individual houses and the locality.
Working in partnership with you
We like to look at our relationship with our clients as a partnership. We are all invested in a successful outcome, and the importance of focusing and working together is vital in getting the best result for our client. Like any relationship, communication is essential in understanding what each party wants to achieve. Any estate agent would want the opportunity to market your property on your behalf and at the outset you will probably see plenty of enthusiasm but often the activity can tail off if there is no early result. Not every property sells within the first few weeks of course, but from the outset we agree a marketing strategy with you that has regular reviews built-in to ensure your property remains firmly at the forefront of our minds. As an independent firm with a ‘can-do’ attitude and a business built on professionalism and extensive local knowledge, we understand it is the quality of service we offer to clients that determines our success. We are therefore particularly proud of the repeat business and recommendations we get from satisfied clients. Testimonials.
