You may have lots of questions - below are some that we are frequently asked. If you have others, please do contact us and we will be happy to provide more information.

/ Why choose a property search agent?

Working with a property search agent has many advantages particularly if you are moving to a new area. Property finders search for property on your behalf, using local knowledge and contacts to find your ideal home in your chosen area. Unlike estate agents, they work for you, the buyer, whereas estate agents work for the seller.  Usually property finders have good contacts in their area making sure they are aware of new properties coming on to the market before they get there. Property search agents save time and money. They do the leg work, finding suitable properties for you to view without you having to scour estate agents and make disappointing journeys to unsuitable homes. A buying agent will know their area well, providing knowledge on services, community, schools and commuting etc. 

/ Are you affiliated to an estate agent?

No, Property Turner is not affiliated with any estate agents.  We have good relationships with local estate agents but we work solely for the buyer and are completely independent home finders. 

/ Which areas do you cover?

We are based in Kent and search for property in Sevenoaks, Cranbrook, and Ashford areas.  We also search for rural properties in the surrounding villages and farmland as well as coastal property searches in the Rye and Romney Marsh areas.

/ Do you sell property?

Property Turner does not sell property, we offer completely independent property searches in Kent and act only for our clients, the buyers.

/ What types of property do you search for?

Property Turner will primarily search for properties based in Kent.  We will look for farms, cottages, estates, barns, houses, equestrian properties, character buildings, properties for extension, redevelopment, restoration. Old, new, historic, listed, modern homes in the rural areas of Kent, or in the towns of Kent, predominently searching for property in Cranbrook, Sevenoaks, and Ashford areas.  We also look for second homes or holiday homes and include Rye and Romney Marsh in our property searches.
