Sandersons in Canterbury, Kent

Our marketing approach in Canterbury is excellent and we are determined to showcase your home to the most extensive selection of buyers possible. We can generate a market-leading number of enquires, increasing the chance of a sale and helping you achieve the best possible price. The added value we bring is reflected in the reviews left by our clients.

Canterbury is very popular with young families. One of the main reasons it appeals to that particular demographic is that it is comparatively cheap when looking west. Also, London is relatively close with High Speed 1 trains from Canterbury West getting you to St. Pancras in 56 minutes and the area has easy access to Maidstone, Ashford, Dover and of course the Thanet and Folkestone coast. 

Home to Canterbury Cathedral, a World Heritage Site founded in 597 AD. Currently home to Archbishop Justin Welby, the leader of the Church of England. The Cathedral is a hugely popular destination with one million visitors a year.

Canterbury is also home to many cultural destinations. Including the Marlow Theatre which was redeveloped to an exceptional standard in 2011 and the St Lawrence Ground, home to Kent County Cricket Club. The favourite Canterbury Tales brings Chaucer's famous tales to life, and escape rooms are an exciting mission to try.

Visit Canterbury is a useful website for new or existing residents to find out about things to do, places to eat and the latest events on in and around the city. 

Canterbury is home to three universities, the University for the Creative Arts, Canterbury Christ Church University and the University of Kent. The city is also home to many public, selective and non-selective schools which all offer a high level of achievement.

Some of the most famous people to have grown up or resided in Canterbury include Orlando Bloom, cricketer David Gower, as well as alumni including Alan Davies and Ellie Goulding.

As an estate agent in Canterbury, we are proud to operate in this beautiful historic and diverse city, which offers homes and flats for each and every family or couple.

I'm happy to say that I've always been impressed with Sanderson's service. It's without question thorough and professional and the staff always go that bit further than just 'good'. My recent dealings with Karen Makes have been outstanding. Thank you!

As a key part of the Sales team, Antonia Costa demonstrated excellent negotiation skills in the sale of our property. She kept us constantly updated with the progress of our sale and her communication skills and sensitivity were very much appreciated.

I would highly recommend the Sanderson's Team. They are a close-knit professional unit, and in Antonia they have a first-rate team member. Thank you very much, Antonia.

Supportive, helpful, caring

From the moment Heidi showed me the house, she was professional, helpful and supportive. She was in constant contact with me and made the whole process a joy. I now have a place to call home and Heidi made everything run smoothly: I cannot thank her enough. I cannot recommend Sandersons enough!

Truly fantastic from start to finish - total professionals

Sandersons have been trustworthy, professional, available and reliable; they have completely delivered in their commitment to selling my home. I have no hesitation in recommending their services, and if I ever move home again I know I will be choosing Sandersons to get me on my way.

Heidi is a gem in your organisation

I have dealt with Heidi for each sale of our 4 houses. She has been at all times extremely professional, understands her customers needs, has kept me in the loop at all times and has a knack of keeping the buyers focused so it has meant sales of all 4 houses within a couple of days of being advertised. She should be recommended for a big bonus given her achievements with our portfolio of properties.

Kellie was brilliant

This was an interesting and at times a stressful purchase. Kellie George was brilliant throughout she is very knowledgable and did all she could to get this through. From the start the purchase was never easy. The property had been listed as residential but was still infact commercial. The vendor was selling the property with a garage en-bloc which turned out was rented from the council. Then we discovered they had done work to the property without listed building consent. So what could have been a quick process turned out to take a little longer. Although we had these issues Kellie kept us updated and did her best to help where she could. Thank you Kellie, 5 star service.

Amazing Service & Straight Forward Talking

This was my second time of house purchasing/selling and this was by far a much more positive experience. Throughout the process Kellie George provided us with timely, useful and straight forward guidance and updates. She developed a good rapport with our solicitor which made the conveyancing process far more efficient.

Kellie was keen to provide an outstanding service from the outset and she most certainly delivered; carefully managing ours and the other vendors expectations along the way.

I would most certainly deal with Kellie, Chris and the team at Sandersons in the future, should we decide to buy/sell another house in the area.

Fantastic Service from Start to Finish

This was my first experience using Sandersons after a recommendation from a friend. I am so glad we took the advice as the service has been fantastic from beginning to end. We were always kept informed of any issues and viewings and offered advice. I have to say the online selling schedule was much more professional also compared to another competitor we used before Sandersons. All in all a great service and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone. I know I’ll be using them again, if and when required.

We are so happy in our new home and I must say, Heidi Rocks and Kellie George (of Canterbury branch) made the entire process easy and safe for us! They have always been available whenever we needed; shared our concerns during such a naturally stressful and anxious process; and smoothly led us to the completion. Thank you so very much for all your help and efforts, it has been a pleasure to work with you! We would highly recommend you and your team to anyone!

Excellent and friendly service

Sandersons have been most helpful and supportive since we began using their service in 2015. They have always responded quickly to questions or concerns and have been very efficient in carrying out the visits to the property and sending reports. We have been particularly impressed with Jemma Simmonds who was incredibly helpful when we were dealing with damage to our flat and an insurance claim. She kept both ourselves and the tenants informed throughout the process and was always professional in her communication both on the telephone and in writing.

Wish I'd come to them first

I went through two previous estate agents first in Canterbury who were both beyond dreadful, turned up late (or not at all), and did no research on the property they were apparently trying to sell. Sandersons was number 3 on the list but I wish I had used them first. They were professional, always turned up on time, and learned about the place beforehand. Communication was good and no chasing was required. I would certainly use again. Buyer was secured within a few months.

Thank You!

I cannot thank the team at Sandersons enough for all their help. Things got a bit tricky with our chain and I am sure without all the hard work they put in (in particular Kelly who did so much chasing for us) we would not now be in our new family home that we absolutely love. I cannot recommend them highly enough to anyone thinking of moving in the future!

Exceptional and Excellent

Sandersons have been superb in helping my wife and I acquire one of their properties for sale, This involves Sandersons selling two properties for us, from the start they have been exceptional and excellent. They are a highly motivated team and dealing with them has proven a rewarding experience. in the midst of various pressures and deadlines they have been caring and very supportive and have injected warmth and humour and their optimism has been a blessing. Quite simply, they are the best .

If you are looking for a thoroughly professional, friendly and interactive firm of estate agents, then Sandersons in Canterbury are to ones to choose. After the sale of our property unexpectedly fell through at the very last moment they were very supportive and understanding. Within a short time another buyer was found and this time the sale went to completion. At all times Neil Brown kept us fully up to date with how things were progressing with the sale process. In addition he was clearly in regular contact with our buyer and our solicitor. This careful attention to the task ensured that all queries and glitches were dealt with promptly and efficiently. We originally chose Sandersons because we were impressed by the way in which Alex Budd conducted himself when he visited us for the initial viewing. We would recommend them without hesitation.
