Property Sales & Letting

As a family-run, local Estate Agent, we offer you the benefit of our extensive experience and local property knowledge. Our focus is on assisting you in making the right decision by giving you and your family our honest, straightforward advice.

We won’t pressure you with sales calls and we are not controlled by sales targets from head office like some of our corporate competitors. We are a traditional family firm that has been operating in Colchester since 1879, so we really do know the market.

We are very unique, being the only agents in Colchester who can offer a full service if you are in the unfortunate position of a family member or friend passing away. We can help take the pressure off by dealing with the probate valuation, clearance of the property and actioning any unwanted items, whilst selling the property.

So we truly can offer that personal touch, no matter your needs.

Residential Sales

We will support you every step of the way with targeted, effective, advertising mainly online and occasionally within the local press. We will also utilise our database of applicants who we know are ready to purchase and we will then provide prompt detailed feedback on viewings. We will keep you informed at every stage of the process, and you can be assured that everything is being taken care of professionally.

We pride ourselves on our customer service and it is this attention to detail that has seen the family business of Stanfords continue to thrive in the property and land business for almost 140 years.

The world of residential property sales has moved online largely & at Stanfords we have ensured our warm and traditional values have remained at the forefront of the business ever since our inception.  We offer a truly exceptional service to our clients and that is why they remain with us for generations.
