estate agents



We understand that in most instances when selling your property we are actually selling your home and all that it means to you. We also understand that moving can seem complicated, confusing and stressful.

We have very high levels of experience in our teams and it is rare that we come across situations that we have not dealt with successfully on many previous occasions. We really do know what we are doing! We know how to achieve the best results, we deliver the best service that we can, and most importantly we want to look after you and help matters to run as smoothly as possible.

Experience counts. We are proud of the levels of business that we carry out through recommendation. We are often instructed to act as a direct recommendation from previous buyers and sellers. We also have many previous customers and who would be happy to talk to you about the service that they have received from us.

We do not charge any ‘up front’ fees and there are no hidden fees. We charge just one fee that is paid by your Solicitors from the proceeds of your sale once you have moved.

We operate on a ‘no sale, no fee’ basis. There are no charges to remove your property from the market if you change your mind or circumstances change.


Buying a property is a huge commitment as we all know and the biggest investment many of us make. Getting it right is so important. We can help you in your search, make all arrangements and of course draw on our knowledge and experience to advise you carefully. We will manage your purchase right through to you moving in, making matters as smooth as possible. Make our experience count for you. We can help you in so many ways, not just helping in your search for a new home.

We recommend from a small panel of trusted Solicitors that we have worked with for several years. We can, of course, arrange quotes for you. Choosing the right legal help cannot be left to chance.

We can offer you the services of an Independent Financial Advisor to help organise a great mortgage. The advise is free to all our customers.

We can also help you arrange a survey on a purchase if you wish; we work closely with a very experienced local companies and quotes can be organised for you.

For Landlords

We understand what it takes to make sure that a let is successful. The quality of Tenant is of course key and we take great care before we recommend anyone to our Landlords. We build strong relationships with our Landlords and Tenants which helps in keeping matters running smoothly. We look after properties carefully with regular inspections and reports as well as only using highly recommended local trades people to carry out works. You and your property will be looked after locally by highly experienced staff. We will tailor our service to suit you but in general there are three levels of service to choose from; full management, rent collection and tenant find. We detail all matters regarding our service and charges in writing in our Service Agreement so that it is clear what our responsibilities are and all the costs involved. All matters will be totally transparent.

Michael was wonderful to deal with. This was a tricky sale, a deceased estate being sold from across the world.

Fantastic managing agent. I rent out a property and Nicholls keep me informed every step of the way. I usually deal with Tony but have found all staff to be helpful. Would recommend. Ms C Wright 15/07/2023
We sold and purchased through Nicholls who were nothing short of excellent in the service they provided to us, despite a tricky purchase that took some time to complete. The team's communication was always timely, clear, and honest. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Nicholls to prospective sellers/purchasers. We've bought and sold through them on two separate occasions and always walked away impressed with our overall experience. Mr A Opitz 23/06/2023
I would Like to say a big thank you to Nicholls Residential Estate agents for selling our house and helping us understand all the ins and outs of the selling procedure. Simon, John, Alan and Ian were all Professional and very friendly. I would highly recommend them if you are selling your property. Cheers guys. Mr D Cole 23/06/2023
We have used Nicholls for both buying, selling and renting out our property. They went above and beyond to assist us with the sale of our rented property especially when we were having issues with the tenants and notice periods. Even though they weren’t managing the tenancy for us they helped with liaising with the tenants through this unfortunate and stressful process. Communication with them was slick and regular so we always knew where we were throughout the sale. We highly recommend them! Mr M Fallon 13/06/2023
Thank you very much for all your help, especially Simon, Alan and all your team who were just excellent throughout the sale process. I can't believe how quickly my house sold. Brilliant and efficient service. Bought my property through you originally, and you were brilliant then. Nice to know you can rely on and trust Nicholls. Mr J Ing 03/06/2023
I just wanted to say how grateful I am to the Nicholls team (especially Paul and Jacqueline), for steering us through the sale of our house. Having never done it before, I didn't know what to expect, and you explained every step clearly (and patiently!). The communication with us was excellent and the house viewings were carried out respectfully. Thank you for all your support! Ms S Rowland 25/04/2023
Legends. I feel the word says it all! We appreciate all your collective efforts and support with guidance on our house sale. Best wishes. Mr S Lai 16/03/2023
Thank you for your excellent service. Miss S Herbert 14/03/2023
I asked NR to manage the sale of my property as I had such a positive experience with them when I bought it and the represented the vendor. I am very glad I did. They combine this with professionalism and a great deal of experience. I think the combination is very reassuring to buyers and reduced my stress levels as a seller. I sold from a distance and NR did a lot of extra legwork, all at no extra cost, as I couldn't visit very often. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Mr P Westmore 03/03/2023
Really great time of estate agents. John was really pleasant to deal with. As a first-time buyer we would really recommend this agency to others whether buying, selling or renting. 10 out of 10 service. Mr A Najak 27/02/2023
I would like to thank you and your agency for the level of professionalism provided to us during the tenancy time. Mr H Kannuna 13/04/2022
Thank you for all your help and we were very pleased with how the sale of our property went, a good start to 2022 and hopefully a better year for us all. We would certainly recommend your company in future to any prospective client. Mr C Dance 19/01/2022
