As the summer holiday season reluctantly comes to an end, the days get gradually shorter, and the inevitable return to normality sinks in, the housing market at least starts to see an increase in activity and an opportunity for people to try and move before the end of the year. Historically I have always enjoyed this late summer/early autumn season, and at Kennedys' we have been working hard to get ready for what I believe will be a busy period. With this in mind, I am delighted to welcome Yvonne Smiley to our lettings team, and we will shortly be announcing another new member to the team, so watch this space. We will imminently be launching a new homes site in Brockham, and I`m delighted to say that the Frith Park site has been selling well, with the long awaited apartments being released soon and a special “stamp duty” event occurring there later in September.
The year so far has seen us remain active in all sectors of the market, and in particular in our lettings business with a 15% increase in Landlords and 18% increase in rentals, whilst on the selling side our sales width has stretched from local cottages and apartments, to the sale of equestrian property in Headley, property in new areas such as Betchworth, Reigate and even as far as Merstham, and everything in between. We have definitely seen a market share increase in areas such as Epsom Downs and Banstead, and I am keen to continue our growth, brand and reputation across the whole area, from our offices in Walton on the Hill and Kingswood.

We bought our house through Kennedys' and found the experience a delight. Their hands on attitude and friendly support made what could have been a very stressful experience an enjoyable one.

From the first valuation appointment onwards to the last soothing phone call to our seller, you have set yourself apart from the rest of the field by a country mile.

I can't recommend Kennedys' enough. Their staff are friendly and efficient. Our house sold for the full asking price within the first week. What more could we ask for!
Sarah & Steve
We chose Kennedy's due to our first experience of popping into their office. Having talked to Peter and the team, we felt straight away that they would give us the personal touch we needed to sell our home. From the get go we were thrilled with the level of care we received from the whole team given our complex moving times and personal issues surrounding our move. We achieved 97% of our asking price withing three weeks and had several other interested parties including the sale that fell through. They really are experts in knowing and predicting the local trends in the housing market and we have no hesitation in recommending the team and their services.

A professional service from start to finish, Peter and his team make selling your house a stress free experience, thanks again.
Mr & Mrs A
Having set our hearts on a house Kennedys' were selling, we promptly put ours on the market which with their great market knowledge, brochure-ware and website, they sold for full asking price in a matter of days! The whole team, and especially Andy, managed our lengthy and complicated chain in a truly professional and friendly way, always happy to take my calls and offer support. Kennedys' really are true market leaders, set apart by their excellent service and friendly approach.
Mr & Mrs P
Thanks to all at Kennedy’s for guiding us through the purchase of our new home. We were pleased to have a prompt, informative viewing and we followed up with an offer. The negotiation took a few days. It was skillfully handled and concluded well for both parties. We were pleased with the after sale liaison which meant issues that arose were dealt with smoothly and we went through to completion in good time. Moving home is always a challenge, so having honest professional and personable agents was very helpful and most appreciated. We are happily settling into our new home.

If like me you thought all estate agents are the same, who “ talk the talk” fear not! When we first met Peter we were viewing a property he was selling, our house was on the market with another reputable agent and Peter asked us to give him an opportunity to sell through Kennedys'. Within three weeks of our initial conversation, he found us a buyer, who moved in 3 months later. Peter Kennedy and his team kept us informed of the progress of our sale throughout the process. We purchased our new home in Kingswood, which I wished was on sale through Kennedys. If you want to deal with a personable, genuine and honest Estate Agent, who can walk the walk, choose Kennedys'.
