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!

Having met Rachel via John Francis of Pontardawe, who has shown me several properties, always with great charm, professionalism and extreme patience with all of my queries re properties which I viewed through this agency, no matter how trivial or how important these queries might be, and been responded to with great patience by Rachel, I can only confirm that, what could and often is, a very stressful time when seeking to buy a new home, was made instead into a very positive and delightful experience with Rachel’s extremely courteous, considerate and very kind attitude helping me so much in making the right decision in this, one of the most important purchases that anyone can ever make in their lifetime and for these reasons alone which are so rare to find in the property business, I am wholeheartedly recommending Rachel as being one of the best agents that anyone could ever wish for, when taking the enormous step in buying their new home or selling their current one, an agent that anyone would be privileged to have to represent them when buyng or selling their property, Rachel having a heart of gold whilst also keeping the best interests of her clients as a priority at all times while giving total and complete reassurance and attention to the buying needs of prospective and actual purchasers at all times. A 5 gold star rating in every respect!

I just wanted to take some time out to express my sincere thanks to Karen and her team as she was absolutely outstanding in providing both a highly professional and thoroughly transparent customer journey in the recent sale of my property. I knew very quickly that Karen could be relied upon to give very honest feedback and her rapport building was second to none. However, her biggest attribute was always knowing exactly what stage the house selling process was at and she would drop everything at short notice to provide an exceptional customer experience. Whenever I spoke to Karen she always portrayed a very bubbly and infectious personality (and as a mortgage advisor myself) I would love to work for someone with Karen honesty, integrity, wonderful sense of humour and highly professional ethos. Please pass on my sincere gratitude to Karen and her team.

Good Afternoon, a huge thank you to the whole Pontardawe team for all their efforts in my sons house purchase. You kept us updated throughout a very sought after home and stressful counter offers. Brilliant communication, liaising and empathy. This was our sons second purchase in 2 months with John Francis. The initial one was via Morriston just as it closed. Nicola Rattenbury took ownership of the transaction and the experience was equally as professional. Hope for the hat-trick with you in Spring! Da Iawn & Diolch
