John Francis has been serving the property needs of customers since 1873. 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 digitally linked enabling us to promote properties throughout the region. But that’s just the start. To sell or let your property for the best price, we advertise across the largest property websites in the UK, Rightmove, Zoopla and OnTheMarket where we reach thousands of potential buyers every day. Through our association with John D Wood & Co. we also have direct links to the important London market, enabling us to reach potential investors both in the UK and internationally. Our staff are very often from the local community, so they understand the marketplace and can offer guidance specific to your personal needs. It’s this market-leading level of service that keeps our customers coming back time and again. We also sell properties by auction and in 2019 averaged an 80% success rate, regularly achieving £12 million in annual sales value and with the Covid situation are now holding Online Auctions. Our March 2020 room auction resulted in a 100% success rate. When choosing where to buy or sell at auction, historic results are no guarantee of satisfaction, but they are the best indication on where you can place your trust!

Commercial West area guide


Narberth is a popular market town located in the heart of Pembrokeshire. The town itself is appreciated for its sense of individuality, boasting a range of boutiques and shops appealing to those of a more artistic nature, coupled with a strong emphasis on independent, local business. Recently voted as one of the 10 best places to live in Wales by The Sunday Times (as part of their ‘Best Places to Live in Britain’ guide), it’s not hard to see why when you consider the delightful Edwardian and Georgian buildings which have been converted to provide a range of amenities including award winning cafes, pubs and restaurants, plus clothes shops, antique shops and a music shop.

Other town attractions include a museum, Narberth Castle and also the Queens Hall which hosts a number of events including music, comedy evenings and more.

The nearby towns and villages in the areas that we cover are predominantly rural and semi-rural and they benefit from the facilities in Narberth whilst being away from the hustle and bustle of busy town life. Many of these locations boast countryside views and in some you can see the picturesque Preseli Mountains, which are beautiful to look at and approximately 12 miles from Narberth.

The main A40 road is an essential link between these locations and the larger towns of Haverfordwest, Carmarthen and Cardigan, with their wider selection of shops and supermarkets. From Narberth, Haverfordwest is only approximately 11 miles away, Carmarthen approximately 20 miles and likewise Cardigan approximately 20 miles also.

The Pembrokeshire coastline is a big attraction to the County, especially for families, and from Narberth the coastal towns of Tenby, Saundersfoot and Amroth are all within 10 miles. With families also in mind, there are a wide range of excellent local Infant, Primary, Secondary and Private Schools.
