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!

Mr & Mrs L

Thank you so so much for everything with the purchase of our new home. You have been AMAZING the last few months with chasing solicitors, the vendors etc and I genuinely don’t think we would have been in yet had it not been for your help along the way. I can’t thank you enough.

N A

Hello to all of you, I really appreciate you helping me out each time I contract with John Francis. They are very friendly and very helpful, thank you very much.

N & R

Hi Louise & Helen, a huge thank you for everything you have done. We do appreciate all your hand work. Best Wishes

Having contacted multiple estate agents around placing my property on the market during lockdown in June of this year, I was impressed with the response and communication of John Francis during this pandemic, particularly from Nicola. Nicola gave me confidence from the first conversation we had that she would have no issues selling the property, given the situation at the time. And to her word, the property was on the market within 24 hours and sold for the full asking price very soon after. I would recommend Nicola and her team to anyone and would not hesitate to use John Francis again to purchase or sell properties in the future.

Mr J

I am extremely pleased with the service I received from Louise and her team in the Sketty branch. After having a considerable amount of difficulty selling our property and encountering all manner of issues. The team came to the rescue by placing the property in auction. With the auction being online and the estate agent not having held a remote based auction previously, I was naturally sceptical on how it would go. Louise maintained weekly contact with me providing timely updates on progress and the level of interest in the property from the time of advertising through to the successful sale, which was so reassuring and helped me stay positive. The team did an excellent job of marketing the property to obtain a high level of interest, which paid off during the auction, as it proved to be a very competitive bidding process, helping achieve significantly more than the guide price. In future I will be recommending the services of John Francis and more so of the auction process. Thank you all so much.

Hi, thank you to all the staff in John Francis Sketty for your support and help, especially Maha Dawood for her extraordinary effort since September 2018 to now. God bless you all and keep up the good work.

Alice, Excellent service for the whole period of marketing and through to sale. Attended viewings by staff with good local knowledge, and always kept up to date of developments, thanks

The housing market has been particularly challenging over the last two years with much uncertainty. John Francis have stepped up to the challenge of marketing and selling our house during this period, which is a testament to their professionalism, persistence and understanding of the market. A big thank you for your help.

BJ

Many thanks to John Francis Sketty for selling my house. Their skillful negotiating managed to increase the offer price by about 15%, which was an excellent result. Thanks again to Louise, Shannon and Ryan.

B.S

I am writing this letter to praise the excellence of your employee Shannon. We viewed two properties in Cockett on the same day with her in March. I cannot express enough her proffessionalism and poitness. She was extremely knowledgeable and efficient in communication. It was a comforting experience considereing our apprehension as first time buyers. Should we sell in the future and Shannon is still working with you we would defintely seek your company to do business with.BS

Dear Sir/Madam, I’d like to say a big “thank you” to Andy Richards and his team at the John Francis, Sketty office for the successful sale of my property in Swansea, and for the kindness and support given through unforeseen circumstances. I would highly recommend their services to anyone venturing into the housing market. HH

I would just like to say a big thank you for selling my property recently. I was impressed at how quickly the sale took place and the time taken by all staff to keep me in the picture regarding everything leading up to the sale. All the staff I dealt with were extremely helpful and very professional. I would recommend John Francis to all my friends and relatives. Thanks once again.

P & K P

Dear All, Apologies for the lateness of this e-mail, myself and K have just returned from a holiday in Egypt. We just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for your professional service in the marketing and eventual sale of our property. We thought that the whole process was very straightforward, your evaluation was spot on and the viewers were given a fair and accurate viewing of the property. We thought that the communication process was particularly good as all of your team were equipped to deal with any of our concerns. We will certainly be using you again. Thanks again.

J G

Dear Andy, We wish to thank you and your staff, especially James, for all your help in securing the sale of our property in Sketty Park. We were very pleased that the business was completed within a period of 3 months. When No 19 was on the market a few years ago it took much longer and so we were uncertain about a time scale for ours and were delighted that the business was reasonably straightforward. We would be grateful if you would also thank Bill for his guidance and valuation of the property. He was relaxed and took nothing for granted as far as the market was concerned and had no desire to depend on historic sales of other houses in the area but preferred to depend upon his own experience.

A & J T

Dear James, At last we are connected to the internet and I can send this to you. Our thanks to the whole team at the Sketty branch for the efficient, courteous and professional way in which you dealt with our recent house sale. The speed with which serious buyers were introduced and a sale concluded at a good price was most impressive. With all good wishes for Christmas and the New Year.

I would just like to inform you that I have been extremely impressed by Sian Worrall, Sales Negotiator who has been involved in the selling of my house in Sketty. As I have been living and working away, and there have been issues in the sale, Sian has gone the extra mile and helped me immensely to get everything sorted out. Sian is always pleasant, professional and as stated above, extremely helpful. She is an asset to your company and a pleasure to deal with. Kind Regards

Mr E C

I was very impressed with the team at John Francis Sketty Office. I applied via the under one roof application which entitled me to a reduced fee, so I thought it would be a case of minimal fee, minimal work. This was not the case as all the team were helpful, hard working and diligent in conducting viewings and finding a purchaser. They were a pleasure to deal with and I would recommend their services in the future.
