Property specialists





For us it's not just about the buying and selling of bricks and mortar.

We recognise that houses are homes and homes are havens. Buying, selling or letting the right property, at the right price creates a win-win outcome for everybody involved, whether you're a buyer, vendor, landlord or tenant. We treat everybody equally and in a fair and professional manner.

Proud to say our awards are also stacking up.

In recognition of our outstanding service, we've been awarded three gold awards by the British Property Awards - top Estate Agent in Stevenage and the leading Estate Agent in the South East. And whilst shiny trophies are not everything, they certainly do symbolise how hard we will work for you.

Making your move happen

That's another of our plus points. We won't just stick a SOLD sign outside your property - we'll make sure that the process actually happens - and as quickly and efficiently as possible. Chances are that will involve dozens of behind-the-scenes phone calls to vendors, surveyors, solicitors, lenders and anybody else involved in the transaction. We like a challenge ... whether it's a chain of eight, survey complications or sitting tenants!

The Own Homes team

We are experienced, passionate, hard working and pay attention to every aspect of your property transaction. We really do run that extra mile to deliver an excellent service and make your involvement with us enjoyable. On top of that, we have first class diplomacy and negotiation skills to ensure we get the job done. Many of our clients are repeat business coming from good old-fashioned word of mouth referrals.

What our clients say

It's true ... we're not making any of this up. Here are a couple of quotes from our clients.

We contacted Own Homes on a Saturday morning after receiving a call to say the house we wanted was available for sale, we were give 2 weeks to sell our home. Martin from Own Homes was there immediately putting things in place and getting our house on the Market in quick time. Natasha & Laura were superb in keeping us up to date with the situation, booking in viewings and providing us feedback. Our house was sold in just 11 Days! Amazing work and we can’t thank them enough. We would highly recommend Own Homes Mr T Family, Stevenage
A very smooth and expedient sale that was in no doubt aided by the friendly, professional approach and attitude of Michael and his team, would definitely recommend Own Homes Mr F, Stevenage
A very professional hard working agency that has a strong theme of realism about the housing market and the likelihood of sale prospects and prices. I would highly recommend Miss A, Stevenage
Now that our mum’s house has been sold; I want to take the opportunity to thank you and your team for your professionalism and sensitivity throughout what could have been an otherwise very difficult time. My special thanks to them for always responding to my calls and for keeping things moving. Its always good to work with good people. Mr L
Just a note of thanks for all your help in the sale of our house. I am so glad I chose Own Homes to carry out the sale, for I feel any other agents would not have shown the sheer diligence and persistence together with extreme patience, all carried out with the upmost professionalism from you and your team. Many thanks Barry Wadsworth
