Own Homes was established in 2008 and is the brainchild of founders Stephen Harris and Michael Notschild. They are as passionate about property as they were on day one. Over the past decade they’ve built up a strong and successful team of property specialists, who live and breathe “bricks and mortar”. What they don’t know about the world of property is just not worth knowing.

Each and every member of the Own Homes team is dedicated to making sure that its valued clients can achieve their property aspiration, whether that is moving to a bigger, more modern home or downsizing after their children have left home.

Own Homes knows Stevenage – and really knows everything that’s going on, property wise, in Stevenage and the wider Hertfordshire region. It has two offices in the heart of the old town – one dedicated to sales and the other lettings.

All Own Homes agents are knowledgeable, dedicated and hardworking. They are committed to working with clients at every step of the buying, selling or letting process. The very first stop in this process is listening, to your needs and wants. Then, they roll their sleeves up and make it happen.

Here at Own Homes, we understand that each Property and sale is individual and therefore tailor Our service to suit your specific requirements -Stephen Harris, director, Own Homes.

The property market flourishes thanks to great marketing and this is an area that Own Homes puts a lot of effort into, using a range of styles to ensure that your property is presented in the best possible light and that the right information reaches the right people. This is how property magic happens – for both sales and lettings.

We are passionate in all we do and pride ourselves on delivering the highest level of service. Selling and letting a property can be a stressful time, which is why we go the extra mile to make your involvement with us as enjoyable as possible

Michael Notschild, director, Own Homes.
