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!

Mr P H

Hello, Thank you all very much for seeing through the sale of our house successfully. All very smooth and efficient, and we got a good price for the house (which always helps, obviously)! Very best wishes.


Thank you for all the help and support your staff gave me . Your staff went above and beyond. I'm very grateful I would give you 10 stars. I'm very happy in my new home . And when I've decorated it be nice if I can show you guys what I achieve. Thank you once again . Stay safe

Mr & Mrs D

Karen was amazing, so helpful unlike all the other estate agents. Thanks again.


Dear Kate & team, thank you so much for your support in securing the property.Please pass on my thanks to the sellers. They left the property immaculate. You made the whole experience a positive experience. Thank you again.


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.
