John Francis Estate Agents have 20 Residential Offices, 5 Lettings Departments and hold 5 auctions per year.  Our specialised Commercial Department which is based in Narberth, covers west Carmarthenshire including Carmarthen town itself, Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion. 
For a sole agency fee therefore all our clients have the benefit of 20 offices offering their property to potential buyers. These facilities are possible by the use of modern technology linking all our offices together to work as one. Our terms are usually on a no sale/no fee basis and we offer a free market appraisal by well trained staff who have expert local knowledge.
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! Our average success rate in 2017 was 83% being well above the national average.
Our 5 Lettings Departments cover the whole of the City of Swansea, the Gower and Swansea Valley, east Carmarthenshire including Llanelli and Ammanford as well as Carmarthen and  Pembrokeshire. Information on all properties in this department are available throughout our group of offices.

Lampeter area guide


It is widely accepted that rugby was introduced to Wales by the Rev. Professor Rowland Williams, who became Vice-Principal of St David’s College in 1850 and who’d played Rugby Football as a student at Kings College, Cambridge. The Welsh Rugby Union recognises Lampeter’s importance to the birth of rugby in Wales, and articles in the University’s archives mention playing rugby at

Lampeter in the 1850s.

The monument is situated on the university Campus between the Library and Canterbury Building.

Lampeter branch case studies


Dear Sirs, My wife and I feel that we must put in writing the experience we had with dealing with your John Francis office in Lampeter, Ceredigion, Mid-Wales in selling our house, more importantly with dealing with one of your employees namely Tracy Davies. We are frequently told that one should complain and make one's feelings known if you feel you have been let down with the service provided by any company or indeed individuals representing that company. We are rarely told to pass on our feelings if one has received an excellent experience and to this point we intend to. Our sale was unbelievably difficult and very, very stressful, quite apart from personal family problems which instigated our sale in the first instance. We could not have chosen a more difficult time to sell with the general market as it was, is and followed on with the Brexit fallout. It took over 3 years to complete, having and losing committed buyers who assured us this was the place of their dreams only to be let down for various reasons at the last minute, thus spending valuable time and money in a wasted exercise. Quite frankly if it wasn't for Tracy we would have given up, she held everything together, she kept our spirits up, she kept us up to speed on everything, she responded quickly and efficiently with every query that was thrown at her from either side. Her understanding of the agency business was exemplary. One serious problem we encountered along the way was one of a boundary issue which, before we had even consulted with our solicitor, Tracy explained the "adverse possession" procedure which as we had been there for over 12 years we would get, even if it meant, unfortunately, further time and money. Again, good advice but more importantly proving to be accurate and putting our minds at rest. We count ourselves very lucky to have had Tracy as our contact throughout our ordeal and as you can see we have nothing but admiration for her, she is a credit to your profession. We hope you will make her aware of our thoughts and praises. Because of her we would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending John Francis to any potential client in the future. Yours sincerely, Mr KJ S.


Lucy Just wanted to say thank you for all your help and patience. You’ve been a star, it’s been very much appreciated. Thanks again


Dear Eryl, Thank you very much and your colleagues at the Lampeter Office for dealing with the sale of our property. I was extremely impressed with your professional, efficient and friendly manner of conducting business which made the whole process easy and stress free for myself. The price achieved at auction far exceeded what I thought was possible for a property that had so many challenges. This was clearly the result of your fantastic efforts and dedication and I would happily recommend your company to others. With very best wishes to you all.


Dear Eryl and Team Thank you for all your work you and the team have put in. I hope I can use John Francis in the future and I will be passing my recommendation on to others. Kind regards.

I would like to take the opportunity to thank you and the team for a totally pleasant time during purchase of my property. Your attitude has been friendly and professional throughout and has put me at ease through a naturally difficult time. I am not sure whether John Francis can actually be awarded an OBE (Overly Brilliant Estate Agent) but you surely deserve one. Kind regards. 15/08/16
