Southgate Estates

Southgate Estates, formerly SaleBoards, was set up in 2007 with an aim to be very different; our Mission is to act with complete integrity throughout our entire business, always putting our client’s needs first and delivering the highest levels of customer service. 

Our non-pushy approach to selling properties in Exeter and surrounding areas includes a free valuation, all carried out in an informal, relaxed manner.  We also pride ourselves on providing the very highest standards, not only in our ethics, but in our approach to marketing.  As members of Zoopla, Rightmove and OnTheMarket and listing properties in the local press, we ensure your property is seen by as many house-hunters as possible. We set our terms to be open and fair, offer extremely competitive fees and strive to offer the highest standards from the time we first speak to a client to the minute their property completes. Since opening, we have contributed to the charity, Amigos, where our contributions have paid for the building of an accommodation block for 16 girls and a guest B&B on the Kira Farm Training Centre in Uganda.

If you are thinking of selling, why not drop into our office to meet the team and see just how different we are to other agencies.  (Why not try us out with a quick enquiry too.  Potential clients are very welcome to ‘mystery shop’ us, but please don’t take this too far as we don’t want waste everyone’s time by booking viewings, etc.  Last time we were professionally mystery shopped, we achieved the highest score the magazine had ever awarded!*)

Please get in touch if you have any questions.
