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.

Very helpful!

Bought a house through Sandersons in Canterbury. Really thoughtful team who had no issue with any enquiry that I made. They were very supportive and pushed through the purchase for us, even when getting the keys at 10 to 5!

Special mentions have to go to Ali and Antonia who were both brilliant.

Fantastic Service

I have been very happy to recommend Sandersons to other people already, even though my sale is not quite complete. I received excellent service right from the first contact by telephone. The Team have been efficient, enthusiastic and helped with me the process. I hit it off with Heidi from the start and she makes you feel at ease. She is hardworking and wants to get the job done in the best possible way.

First time solo renting and such amazing support!!!

I was looking for my first flat to rent by myself and thankfully found one I loved. Lettie and Anita were so incredibly helpful - I found that with their help the process went very smoothly in comparison to how I thought it would go and I’m so excited to move into my flat. Times like this are extremely stressful for everyone but they didn’t let that impact the way they supported me in finding the best flat and offering advice to make sure I am comfortable. Thank you so much to the both of you :)

Exceptional renting agent

Sandersons have been my renting agents for the past year. I have nothing but praise for their services. I have full peace of mind that my house is in very capable hands and that they are in close contact with my tenants to ensure that they are also well looked after. It’s a perfect partnership. Their level of communication before any works are carried out is of the highest level. Payment is prompt and transparent. If you are considering letting a house I would honestly look nowhere else.

Professional, quick to communicate and accommodating

Very friendly staff who are able to provide all our needs, both getting back to us very quickly and professionally. They were also happy to fit our needs and negotiated on our behalf with the landlord. Definitely recommend Sandersons.

Move made easy through difficult times

We put our house up for sale in Chartham, Canterbury just before Christmas 2019 when we first met Chris Murphy. After enquiring of our needs and obtaining details we then met their professional photographer and later still three wonderful ladies - Kellie George, Antonia Costa and Heidi. Later still we were introduced to Alexandra (Ali) Groen. After several views, an offer was made and accepted in mid-January. Throughout this the above ladies kept us updated and accompanied the prospective buyers, in particular Antonia. They were continuously contacting us to update re potential visits and feedback.

By chance SANDERSONS were also the agents for the house we bought and my wife and I cannot thank them enough for the help they provided from start to finish. Well done all of you and would not hesitate in recommending you to other potential buyers and vendors.

Great service, efficient and helpful staff and always quick to respond: a great team!

We have had a brilliant time at Orient Place with Sandersons UK, it will always be special to us as our first home and where we raised our daughter for her first 3 years. However, it is time to move on to a bigger place, as we are expecting our next child so just need some more room.

Sandersons UK also have a brilliant problem reporting system which goes straight to their maintenance team and the problem will be solved from there.

Can I just say thank you for everything you and your team at Sandersons have done over the years for us, always responding fast and efficiently to any problems or queries and always being there to look after us. Thank you!

Excellent Service

The team at Canterbury managed my sale and purchase with a high degree of professionalism, efficiency and excellent communication. They offered great advice and were very supportive throughout the whole process.

In particular Heidi, Kellie and Antonia were instrumental in getting the sale over the line. They proactively worked with agents and solicitors down the chain. They kept me updated, were approachable, personable and always willing to help.

I would highly recommend Sandersons to others.

Would definitely recommend and use again

We are extremely pleased with our decision to use Sandersons, Canterbury branch to sell our property. From the outset Heidi was extremely friendly when she valued our house and the guidance brochure they gave us on selling a house through them was very informative and miles better than anything the competitors supplied us with. Selling our house was made very easy with all members of the team working together to find us a buyer quickly and making sure communication was always clear and if we had any queries they would endeavour to answer swiftly. They have been brilliant and we would definitely use them again in the future.

Fantastic

We had our home on the market with a different agent (not naming them) but the experience was awful.

SO when we decided to re-market, we looked for a personal touch.

We’ve certainly had that!

Was extremely impressed when we decided to go with Sandersons, other agents made the time to come and see our home to give a honest view and opinion to people interested in looking around.

We’ve had prompt replies to emails and someone is always there to help!

Fantastic estate agent!

We have sold and brought with Sandersons over the last few years and I honestly cannot recommend them enough!

We dealt with Heidi, Kellie, Antonia and Chris, they were all very helpful and professional and sold our property quickly.

Everytime we rang there was always someone to help and the feedback was brilliant when we had anyone looking around the house!

Thank you Sandersons, as always a pleasure to deal with you.

If we sell again we wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Excellent and Professional Service

I needed to move into a property in Canterbury within a very short time frame. Robin and his team viewed the properties with me, introduced me to the landlord and drew up the tenancy contract within less than 3 days. Their houses were all clean and their advice helped me secure a good location at an affordable price - Keep up the good work!

House Sale.

The sale of my house was a bit complex at first to say the least.

This was no fault of Sandersons's, they were able to sought the problems out and kept the sale running smoothly, I would definitely recommend and use Sanderson's again.

A big Thankyou to all at Sanderson's.

My property is my pension so before choosing Sandersons I researched my choices thoroughly. I'm happy to say that it was the right choice. The staff are excellent and always professional and helpful. They're great at finding good tenants and ensuring my property is looked after. My tenants have always been great and my property has never been vacant. I can thoroughly recommend Sandersons, with no reservations.

Property Management - Karen Noakes

Sandersons has been looking after a number of properties for us for some years now and we are very lucky to have Karen Noakes as our property manager. I am impressed by how Karen has come to know the properties in great detail. She is addressing a wide range of issues for us from simple maintenance works to quite complicated legal issues advising us and supporting us well in all these areas. It is a great personal service and wonderful for us to have one person as contact for all matters. I know she is supported in this by a great property management team who are equally up to date with our properties as when Karen is not available there is always someone else who quickly understands the issue whatever it may be. Many thanks!!

Office Efficiency

I have had very good service from Sandersons in general. The staff are friendly and co-operative but for me the stand-out member of staff is Nancy Hills who, as office manager, is highly efficient and is always accurate and reliable in her work. When I need back-up information regarding our tenants she always has this at her fingertips and responds quickly.

Many thanks
