Selling and letting the very best homes in our very own special way...

Our Story


Hello, I’m Sara Smith.

I’m the founder and proud owner of Smith & Co. Estates, wife to Matt, mother to two gorgeous girls, homeowner, self-builder, landlord and local business owner.

“Property has always been a part of me. It stems from my upbringing; I lived and breathed it.”

People and property are my passion, my obsession!  Growing up surrounded by house renovations, new builds and developments, certainly shapes your interests.  I’m also genuinely interested in, (obsessed with), people. I want to know every detail, all about them, their lives, their friends and family. Understanding people’s stories makes you more passionate about helping them in their journey and I feel genuinely privileged to share in this experience.

At Smith & Co, we recognise that unique homes need a unique approach to marketing.  Whilst standard type marketing strategies can be sufficient to sell houses in streets where the homes are mostly similar, marketing unique homes can be more challenging.

Often, it takes just one buyer to fall in love with your home and pay (almost) whatever is asked.  Finding that buyer takes time and specialist marketing skills.  And that’s where we come in.

At Smith & Co. we understand that every unique home deserves a bespoke team of talented individuals working tirelessly to achieve that all important sale.

Our small, synergetic team, are true representatives for the shared vision of Smith & Co, each member bringing enthusiasm and compassion to the group. No matter who answers the phone to your enquiry, you can be assured of a warm greeting and exceptional service.

Whether you’re thinking of selling, currently selling or struggling to sell – we’d be delighted to hear from you.  A free Home Consultation with me will help you get a plan in place.  Just call us on 01623 392352 or drop us a line at – we’re here to help.

We’re excited to hear from you!

Warm regards


  • “I was very impressed by the service at Smith & Co from my first meeting with them. They were enthusiastic and professional in arranging to let my house, and I found them to be proactive and thorough in everything they did. They were able to arrange for my house to be completely refurbished, and this was done in an effortless and stress-free manner. My house now looks fantastic, was let very quickly, and I am very grateful to Sara and the team for their kind and patient approach”

  • “Used to find my tenants myself but used Smith & Co after a referral from a friend. Fast and effortless service. Found me 2 amazing tenants who loved my house as their home. Never had a property empty for more than 4 days since using Smith & Co. Highly recommended *****”

    Mr & Mrs F – Landlords
  • "My house had been on the market with a well known local estate agent for about 4 months. I was very dissatisfied with their service. Luckily a friend recommended Smith & Co. Sara came to see me very promptly have already checked out my house on Rightmove etc. She immediately gave me some excellent advice as to how to make the property more appealing. Her valuation was fair and realistic. More than this she was friendly, caring and patient. I have now moved and throughout the whole process, never altered my opinion. Sara, and all the staff, are excellent. The company is unlike any other estate agent I have ever dealt with and I recommend them to everyone. Thank you all so much. Carole"

The process for my tenants has been equally trouble free. The tenants Smith and Co have found for me have been fantastic.
