Pontardawe branch

9 High Street Pontardawe SA8 4HU

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 is 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 is 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!

I would like to thank you for your assistance during my time of purchasing my first home. As being a first time buyer I had no idea how the procedure went, the team guided me along and were very helpful with any questions I had. They were always reassuring that everything was on the right track. I would have been lost without your support. Thank you.


Thank you all at John Francis, I can honestly say you have provided the most hands on and professional service that I have ever had from an estate agent, so a big thank you. Happy New year and thank you again.

J & S

Hi Girls, Just a quick note to say a massive thank you for the professional and personal approach we had from yourselves to allow us to purchase our dream house in Trebanos. We were impressed with the no-fuss attitude and quick turnaround of any information that we needed and would definitely recommend you to anyone looking to purchase a property in the area.

L & D South

A massive thank you for being professional, being positive, polite, honest and on the ball. You have sold houses for myself and D and for D and C. Your knowledge with your buyers is second to none and I have dealt with many Estate Agents in the past years and you are one, if not, the best. I run a very large consumer company which I also own. If I had one of you for every 10 employees I have (and they are good) then I would have been a very rich man. Keep doing what you do . . . you are amazing!

T & R

To everyone at John Francis, Thank you so much for your continued effort during the most stressful six months of my life! We got there in the end! Thanks again.


Hi James, Thanks for the help you and the team have given on this sale. I have to say it’s been the most professional service I’ve ever received from and estate agents! My mother has been in contact with someone in your office to accept the offer, but please accept this as formal notification. I’m hoping to appoint a solicitor today. Kind regards.


Hi Rebecca, Thank you very much for dealing with this so promptly. You expertise and efficiency at John Francis Pontardawe has been second to none. Thank you Karen, Avril and Rebecca x

Mr N & Mrs N Rees

Hi All We would just like to thank you all for the support and providing the viewings on our property. You did exactly what you promised getting people through the door. The rest is down to the one who wants the buy. Your ongoing support was positive and reassuring. We will pass on recommendations for you. Thank you again in supporting us to move on hopefully to better things. Kindest regards.


I would like to thank all the team at Pontardawe branch for a great experience for the sale of our property.
