Helping you with your move – not just a sale!

Finding your home:

Le Corbusier said, “The home should be the treasure chest of living.” We believe that your home should be a special place. A place where you can relax, enjoy, entertain and shut out the rest of the world. We will find the perfect home for you.

We know the area well, having lived and worked in the Hertford for most of our lives. We have a large property portfolio to ensure we find that special place you are looking for. Every client is different and as such we will design a bespoke package for you to service your requirements.

Statistics show that buying and selling your home is one of the most stressful experiences families go through. We will ensure that pressure is taken from you. Our expertise will make, what can be a worrying experience, a seamless process. We will help iron out the problems as they occur and will manage your sale or purchase for complete peace of mind.


Your brochure will be bespoke. We will find the unique selling features and best aspects of your property, ensuring that right from the initial stages of the process, we start to promote your home to potential buyers. The quality of photography is our shop window. We draw in potential purchasers with beautiful images of your home. Our sales team all visit your property prior to its launch. We therefore are able to talk to purchasers about your home. We pride ourselves on a first class promotion. We will manage viewings for you at any time convenient to you and potential buyers. Our service puts you first. We aim to ensure the best possible sales price for you and will go the extra mile to ensure satisfaction.


A vital ingredient for success is good communication and our company prides itself on our availability, accessibility and 24hour care. We proactively approach our job of getting your property SOLD!  We will call YOU the buyer the moment we think we have found the house of your dreams and when we act for you, as our client, you can rest assured that your property is being marketed effectively.

At SIMPLYHOMES we recognise you need to be kept informed at all times. After a viewing you will hear from us with viewer feedback. If after two weeks, your property hasn’t sold, we will review your marketing strategy with you, develop a further plan and will ensure we progress towards the result your property deserves.
