Welcome to Churchwood Stanley, the independent property agent for Essex and Suffolk (CO and IP postcodes) that puts you and your needs at the heart of everything that we do.

On average our sellers achieve 98.1% of asking prices with an average first time successful sale to completion rate in excess of 92% (source internal CRM system). We do that by drawing on years of experience in the property market, understanding your property goals and by creating engaging adverts centred around brilliant property photography on all major property websites such as Rightmove, Zoopla and OnTheMarket. There’s no one size fits all approach here, our service will be as unique as the people and property that we have the pleasure of representing.

What every seller at Churchwood Stanley can expect is for their property to be marketed to its fullest potential and for every opportunity (and hurdle!) to be personally managed by sales Director Darryl Stanley and his attentive team.

We won’t tie you into any lengthy unhelpful contract, we’ll stay focused on reviewing the property advert, providing you with constructive feedback, converting enquiries to viewings, viewings to sales and sales to a successful transaction. We won’t fail on this promise and this is why we don’t need to tie you in for an unsavoury amount of time. You’ll stay with us because you’ll want to.

Churchwood Stanley are also members of TEAM - a national network of independent estate agents where each office has every property available on the network (throughout the UK) available to sell. Each member agent even receives an incentive to promote your home to their home buyers which really does make sure the reach of our property adverts is beyond a single office or a ‘simply’ online presence. These offices extend throughout the UK and also along the A12 corridor into London. We see, on average, more than a third of our properties sold to the London / London suburban buyer which is quite significant. Our area is a commuting and retirement dream.

What really sets us apart though, is our people. Whether you need advice on, negotiating the best offer, making your home more appealing for sale, adding value, navigating the sales process or any other property related matter (and trust us the topic is broad!) our people have the skills and experience from thousands of property transactions to draw upon for your benefit.

We are fully compliant agents who adhere to Client Money Protection regulations, Property Ombudsman Services, Anti-money-laundering regulations, the Consumer Rights Act, Tenants Fees Act, General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Energy Performance Regulations and so much more.

So if you’re looking for an agent that is going to be on your side, that has a track record of success, makes brilliant adverts and has the skill and motivation to get you where you need to be then we are all ears and ready to help.
