John Francis Estate Agent has been serving the property needs of customers since 1873 and we sell more properties in the SA post code than any other agent. If you have a property to sell or let, or are looking for your next home, we have the experience and expertise to help. We have an extensive 19 strong branch network throughout West Wales, each conveniently located in town centres. All our branches are linked, enabling us to promote properties throughout the region. To sell or let your property for the best price, we advertise across the largest property websites in the UK- Rightmove and Zoopla where we reach thousands of potential buyers every day. Our staff are very often from the local community, so they understand the marketplace and can offer guidance specific to your personal needs. It is this market-leading level of service that keeps our customers coming back time and again. We also sell properties by auction and in 2020 averaged an 94% success rate, way above the national average and, with the Covid situation, are now holding Online Auctions. When choosing where to buy or sell, historic results are no guarantee of satisfaction, but they are the best indication on where you can place your trust!

Carmarthen area guide

Carmarthen office is situated in the centre of Carmarthen. The oldest town in Wales with its historical castle looking down over the Towy River famed for its Salmon/Sewin fishing across Europe. Four full time members of staff, with two part time members are based here. The office covers one of the largest areas and is one of three offices covering Carmarthenshire. Labelled as The Garden of Wales, as soon as you’ve visited or lived in the  area  it’s easy to see why.
A large area fronts onto Carmarthen Bay, the large beaches of Pembrey and Pendine (7 miles long), to the lesser equally beautiful Llansteffan and Ferryside. All are connected by a coastal path constructed for the enjoyment of all whilst walking or cycling.
Ancient castles look after our landscapes with lush green valleys below and rivers meandering through flowing to the sea.
Plenty of leisure activities include mountain biking and bike trails, horse riding, kayaking, white water rafting, gorge walking, the list is endless.  For the less energetic people there are many eateries in the area, too numerous to mention. Llandeilo town well known for its slow food rather than fast food outlets.
Attractions include the wetlands in Llanelli, Ffos Las horse racing course, National Botanical Gardens of Wales and Aberglasney Gardens to name but a few.
If you’re still unsure of where you want to live, then the Dyfed Powys Police area is the biggest in the country with the lowest crime rates also.

Hi, just to say that John Francis, Carmarthen is my favourite Estate Agent to deal with. All the staff take their lead from Neville who is fab. They are always helpful and smiley with a can do attitude with great senses of humour ( that is really needed when looking at houses. This is the second house I have purchased through that office. So a big thank you to all of the team.

Mr W

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to the team in John Francis Camarthen who helped us navigate through a very difficult sale and then purchase.The staff kept very level headed as we went through some difficult stages, giving reassurance and advice which was greatly needed. A big thankyou especially to Michelle and Neville who were very focussed and knowledgeable when we really didnt feel confident of anything. I know there were others who certainly did help us along the way too. We have dealt with many estate agents and can say from our experience that Camarthen has an Excellent team and we wish them all the best for the future. From all of us, diolch yn fawr iawn.


Dear Claire I am sure you are aware we have just completed on our property. I would like to say thank you so much for your advice and enthusiasm as if it hadn't been you I had first spoken to about selling my property we may not have even put it on the market! Many thanks again.

To Claire, Thanks for all your support & guidance in selling our property and buying another. It's been a long 2017!! But finally it's ours! Thanks very much!! You'll have to return to see the transformation. Regards.


As you are aware, our property had been marketed elsewhere prior to being placed with yourselves. If only we had done this earlier. You were so proactive, professional & efficient. We will definitely recommend you. Regards.


Many thanks to you Claire and the team for a successful sale on my property. I am particularly grateful that you pursued a couple who seemed to appreciate its 'magic'. King regards, P I.

Dear Mr Emanuel, We have recently completed the purchase of our property in Bronwydd Arms and would like to complement all the members of staff involved throughout the whole process. Michelle and Callum have been particularly helpful and we would like to express our sincere thanks to them for making the purchase process as smooth as possible. We are very pleased with our new property. Regards, M&G.B


Would like to take the time to say a huge thank you to Claire Rees in the Carmarthen branch for incredible customer service from the start of our journey with regard to purchasing our new home ... Claire was excellent at being informative, supportive and caring for our needs as new customers. She ensured we felt relaxed and confident at every stage and continues to be of great help. We had a very stress free purchase and proceeded to use John Francis to work for us to rent out our original property. First class effort from Claire. Thank you we will highly recommend. I would also like to add how Gareth in Countrywide was excellent in his role also great team effort from both.


To Michelle, I just want to thank you for your diligent work and the tremendous effort you put into selling and marketing my property. We have been in constant communication since February, you were always helpful, positive and professional which helped me a lot during a challenging time. Words cannot fully express my gratitude to you Michelle, thank you so much for being you, and for the massive role you played in achieving to sell my property. You are an asset to John Francis and I shall recommend the company to others in the future. Thank you so much Michelle once again, shall pop into the office one day. Kind regards.

All the team at John Francis, Thank you for all your help.


To Claire, Just a little note to say thank you for all your help, support and understanding regarding the selling of mum and dad's house. It has been a very stressful and heartbreaking few years but your help and advice during the whole process is very much appreciated. I would like to also thank you for keeping me informed and updated from start to finish as you made me feel completely involved at all times. Wishing you all the best for the future. Kind regards.

J & J W

Thank you so much to Neville and the whole team at John Francis, Carmarthen. You have all worked so hard with both our recent sale and purchase and we are grateful for your professionalism and hard work and humour to get us through it! Careful now - you are in danger of giving estate agents a good name!!!! Kindest regards. Diolch yn fawr.

J & J W

Dear Nerys, Thank you so much for all your help and wonderful assistance and professionalism in the sale and purchase of our properties. We appreciate so much your hard work and couldn't have done it without you. Hope we are not moving again in near future - but if we were, we would definitely use you and your team at John Francis. Hope you have some well earned time off soon. Kind regards.

S M & B OD

Barry and I would like to thank you for all your help and support with selling our property. Your advice and support was invaluable. Best wishes for 2017.

Mr J

To Michelle, Zoe, Claire, Hannah, I write to thank you for all your help and assistance in facilitating my move from Weybridge to Bancyfelin, for answering my queries when needed and to Zoe for giving up her own time on a Saturday to assist with selecting carpets. I am very pleased to be back, although I miss Weybridge and intend returning to visit from time to time. Since moving, just over two weeks ago, I have had some problems with B.T, which I hope are in the process of being resolved today and there are a number of minor snagging issues which need to be rectified. Apart from that, all appears fine. In the course of time, I hope to be back in touch again, if and when I come to selling the property and shall look forward to seeing you again. All best wishes.

T & S

Dear Wendy, We wanted to thank you for your help at the auction. We couldn't have bought the house without your kindness.


Neville and his team have been great. I have been in Wales since 1980 and the only estate agent I would use and recommend is John Francis. Well done all of you and many thanks SW
