About us

A local estate agent like no other

Hamptons has been matching people with property that’s right for them, locally, nationally and internationally, since 1869. We were pioneers, setting standards that few of our rivals could match. And this hasn’t changed since. Today, 150 years after we first set up home in Pall Mall, with 15 decades of finding property and looking after people under our belt, our clients now consider us to be their ‘home experts

Hamptons Estate Agents Established 1869

What makes us different

If there’s one thing we’ve learnt over the years it’s the collective power of our network. So once you talk to your local branch you enjoy the best of all worlds; with people working for you who know their local area inside out, plus the support of a 90-strong network with all their knowledge and contacts. And our branches constantly talk to one another, sharing information and working together to help you with your move.

And we’ll keep you updated, so you always know how your sale or let is progressing. You’ll receive detailed feedback after viewings, plus we’ll call at least once a week with an update. Whatever happens, you’ll know exactly what’s going on.

Our people

Our people are our most valuable asset, so we choose new recruits very carefully. We like to take our time, hiring people we feel sure you’ll be happy to deal with. Our culture attracts experienced professionals, but no matter how many years’ service they have under their belt, they’re thoroughly trained the Hamptons’ way. And, we continue training staff throughout their careers, so our employees are always learning. With our impressive training and culture the majority of our staff stay at Hamptons for many years.

We realise that whether you’re selling or letting, you’re making a hugely important decision, you need people that are switched on and up to date with all the latest changes in regulations and the legal process. You need people you can trust.

And people do trust us. Every year we sell or let over 15,000 properties and help over 120,000 buyers and tenants in their search for a new home. And not just in the UK, globally we market more than £41 billion worth of property.

Our values

We are best when we act together, working seamlessly on behalf of our customers. We think beyond our own business areas and offices, communicating openly, ever alive to opportunity.
We are forever keen to learn. We listen, read and observe. We ask questions. It’s how we improve and it’s part of what makes us experts. Experts never stop learning.
We treat customers as we would wish to be treated. We recognise that customers are not a generic group but individuals with needs and anxieties. Putting ourselves in their place is the key to great service.
We seek to improve and ask, ‘Is there a better way?’ We are willing to react fast, be proactive, spot and act on an opportunity, embrace change and innovate. Our ability to do this is key to our success.
We create honest relationships with each other and with our customers. We own our own actions. We are appreciative and encouraging of colleagues, listening and being receptive to ideas.
