For over 90 years Snellers has been successfully selling and letting property in the Richmond and Kingston boroughs. Our teams of local experts handle the sales or lettings of over 2,000 each year and continuously focus on delivering a great service for our clients and customers.

‘The market isn’t showing any signs of slowing down,’ says Gary Oliver at Snellers. ‘We are witnessing record sales numbers and we anticipate similar levels of activity through to the end of the year. Within the last few years we have seen buyers choosing the Richmond and Kingston boroughs over other areas closer to central London as they provide better value for money and many people no longer need to commute into the city on a daily basis. Families in particular choose this area due to the impressive schools, young professional couples are also looking to buy here with a key requirement being a home office or space to build one. If you’re thinking of bringing your property to the market, it’s important to instruct a highly skilled and experienced professional agent to ensure you achieve the best possible price and take the stress out of selling your home. In order for buyers to secure their dream home we are advising them to make sure they are in a strong position with finances and solicitors in place and if you have a property to sell, get it on the market and don’t wait. One of the most impressive properties we have been involved with selling includes a Georgian mews house in Bushy Park. Once the former Royal stables for King George III, this property dates back to the mid 1700s and received editorial coverage in The Sunday Times. As we head into the last few months of the year, we expect the market to remain strong and we are focused on ensuring those looking to move before the Christmas break do so.’

‘We are witnessing a huge demand for large family houses from corporate tenants and professional families relocating to Hampton so the market is extremely busy at the moment,’ says Sophie Yeates from Snellers. In recent years we’ve seen a slight change in the tenants looking to secure a property through us, there have been lots more professional families relocating from central London who are drawn to the excellent local schools and the Royal Parks on offer in the Richmond borough. In order to secure the best possible tenant at the best possible price, we are advising landlords to ensure their property is in a good condition and is well maintained. This will help stand out against the competition, tenants will always pay a premium for a good quality property. The market is moving incredibly fast and so tenants need to be prepared to put their best foot forward and proceed quickly. A few of the most popular locations in Hampton Hill include St. James Road, this is a premium road with impressive large houses. Other highly desirable areas include roads near the high street for local amenities and the large green open spaces of Bushy Park. We have been achieving record prices and we expect the demand to continue for the foreseeable future. There has never been a better time to be a landlord.’
