Founded in 1994 by Adrian Dowding, we are based in Fordingbridge. The business is now owned and run by Rebecca Hester who worked with Adrian for 16 years before his retirement in 2017. We are proud to work as traditional estate agents, offering exceptional customer service and a caring approach to get the right result for our clients, with the least amount of stress.

We understand that selling your property is one of the biggest decisions you will ever make. We take time to understand your requirements and reasons for moving and then work with you to help you achieve them. Throughout the marketing and sale of your property you will be kept informed at every stage. Always contactable, excellent customer service is extremely important to us.

One of our key priorities is to keep in regular contact with you throughout the marketing and sales process. We will, as a matter of course, liaise with solicitors, mortgage brokers and other estate agents throughout the transaction, and provide you with regular progress reports so you are never left in the dark.

Moving can be stressful, whether you have moved many times or if this is your first. We are here to guide you through this sometimes complex process. In our office, you will not only find friendly and professional employees, but people that have a vast understanding of the local market.

We offer a friendly, high quality service with a nurturing, no-nonsense approach - something that resonates with our customers, who come back to us again and again.

We are an integral part of the local community with our office located centrally in the town. It is a hub for current clients and for past customers, who call in regularly for a catch up. You won’t find another estate agent with our approach and ethos. We are here to talk to you, to take the time to get to know you and help you move into the home you have always desired.

Whether you are looking to sell or buy, contact us for a free no obligation marketing appraisal or to discuss your requirements on 01425 655333. We promise honest advice and a personal service that is second to none.


The Area

The historic market town of Fordingbridge is situated on the banks of the Hampshire Avon, close to the New Forest National Park in an area of outstanding natural beauty. It has a diverse countryside from river valleys to chalk downland, and from forest and heathland to the undulating Dorset coastline.

The area offers a perfect mix of rural English beauty, yet is conveniently placed near excellent transport routes. London, Salisbury, Bournemouth, Southampton and Portsmouth are all easily accessible. The south coast is within easy reach, offering holiday resorts and sailing. There are ports at Southampton and Portsmouth for continental destinations, and airports at Bournemouth and Southampton for international destinations.

Fordingbridge and the surrounding area has a wide choice of education choices, with excellent schools in Fordingbridge, various village schools and the successful Burgate Secondary School & Sixth Form. There are also several schools – both public and grammar in the area and in nearby Salisbury.

There are lots of reasons to love this area, and we have many leisure opportunities available, including a number of local golf courses, fishing on rivers and lakes, walking, cycling and horse riding within the New Forest National Park. The south coast resorts of Poole, Lymington and Christchurch offer excellent sailing facilities. There is something for everyone – no matter your age, or your lifestyle.
