About Us

Visitors to the office will be greeted by Sandra Ross, who has been with the company since 1987, Jonathan Swain who has over twenty years experience in the local area and Mick Goodrum (Director), who has overseen our lettings and management wing since its launch in 1990. Our workforce share an in-depth knowledge of the coastal area of West Sussex we serve – the highly desirable Aldwick Bay and Craigweil estates, the beautiful surrounding villages and beyond. Since 1987 we have gained a reputation for selling individual and unique properties. The specialized methods employed in marketing these character properties has proven to be equally successful when used on more orthodox family homes.


High quality colour sales brochures, superior local knowledge, accompanied viewings, local, national and worldwide advertising via rightmove.co.uk and onthemarket.com accompanied with today’s social media sites including facebook and twitter, free market appraisals, an excellent letting service and competitive commission rates have been the cornerstones of our success.
