The Only Agent In Derby To Offer The Complete Moving Experience...

If you’re looking for a proper estate agent with local, experienced and well-trained staff who can negotiate the best price for your property and guide you expertly through the selling process right up to completion day – you’ve come to the right place…

We’re a Derby-born, independent, family-run estate agency (read more about our story here) and since we launched in 2003 we’ve become the town’s number one selling and nationally recognised estate agency. Our focus on providing top-notch service, delivered by a professional, knowledgeable and friendly team of over 50 agents, has helped us to build a fantastic reputation for getting great results and has also seen us win some outstanding industry awards over the years. This is estate agency done properly and if you have a property to sell, here are just some of the reasons why we’re different

Independent Derby Business

We're 100% based in Derby so when you, or a potential buyer, call us - you're speaking to someone local who knows you and your property. You won't be getting frustrated having to speak to a different person every time who's sitting in a call-centre hundreds of miles away.

Complete Moving Experience

Whatever you need during the selling process, the chances are it's a service we provide or we can recommend a Hannells preferred partner at an exclusive rate so that you can be sure at all times you're in capable hands and for a great price too!

No Lengthy Contracts

We were the first agent in Derby to introduce a "no tie-in" policy. We're so confident in the service that we provide that if you're not completely satisfied, you can withdraw your property at any time during the marketing stages without receiving a financial penalty. Not every agent has the same level of confidence.

Best Marketing In Town

We go the extra mile when it comes to marketing our properties to make sure we get the very best price. We offer wide-angle lens photography, professionally enhanced images, drone photography, virtual walkthroughs, floorplans and we're Derby's most viewed agency across social media with house previews and presenter led video tours.

Your Local Agent

We don't believe in one central office that serves a huge area. It's clear from our success that local branches, with local people that deal with the local area delivers superior results and enables us to provide a much better service. That's why wherever you are in Derby, you're never far from a Hannells branch. You can find your nearest one HERE.

Fully Regulated & Licensed

We voluntarily sign up to industry governing bodies such as NAEA and The Property Ombudsman to give our customers peace of mind that they're dealing with a professional and qualified estate agency that values it's responsibilities. You'd be surprised by the number of local agencies that aren't fulfilling their legal obligations. We choose not to be one of them.

No Sale No Fee

Up-front payments have become quite common in estate agency over the years - but it takes away any incentive to get your property sold. We're advocates of doing it the right way so if we can't find a buyer at a price you're happy to accept, you don't pay us a penny.*

Multi Award-Winning

For a family-run, Derby based business, we have a pretty impressive trophy cabinet that is chocked full of nationally acclaimed, highly coveted estate agency awards - and it continues to grow year on year. All thanks to our commitment to excellent service, brilliant marketing and superior results! You can see our collection HERE.
