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!

Sketty Reviews


Mr H J

Good afternoon, my name is Mr H J and I've just moved from Sketty to Carmarthenshire and I want to say that I was so impressed by, and grateful to the Sketty team for their efforts on my behalf over the past six months or so. A superb presentation package was made of my old property, which at one point made the top 10 most viewed houses on Zoopla. Every viewing was on time and conducted so well and I always received feedback, usually on the day. In addition the staff were there for me throughout the selling process and no matter what the problem, Louise, Emma, Jacqui and Helen were wonderful to me in resolving the issues that arose. I had a good experience with John Francis over 12 years ago and this time round I don't think I could have found anyone better to sell my property. Well done Sketty. My thanks too to the Carmarthen branch for their help in the process. I would certainly recommend John Francis to anyone that needs an agent. Top marks. Regards.

To the staff at John Francis Sketty, we cannot thank you enough for the hard work and professionalism you showed to secure the sale of our property. The transaction did not run smoothly, through no fault of your own, but you persisted in talking to all the parties involved and bringing about a successful conclusion.You remained approachable when we were becoming frustrated with the legal process and, especially you Louise, offered sound advice on how to proceed. We firmly believe we were only able to reach completion because of your efforts and assistance.

Mr A M

I would like to highly thank the professionalism of Jacqui and Louise that I experienced during my property sale. Jacqui is an excellent negotiator and represents seller interests well. Louise has amazing interpersonal skills which enables a rapid closure of deals. She at the same time comes across as an honest person, I trust to both sellers and buyers. She also engaged well with the solicitor for the completion on time. Hence, an overall amazing experience of selling with John Francis Sketty branch. Wishing you all the best.

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.

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.
