Selling any property asset can be stressful, and when it comes to the sale of country houses, farms and estates, particularly those that have been in the family for many generations, such feelings are often magnified.

Appointing an agency you can truly trust makes such a difference at this important time.


By structuring the transaction with careful thought and planning, both ourselves and the purchaser were able to benefit and as a result came away with a win/win all round.
From the first visit you were realistic, yet enthusiastic and extremely efficient in all aspects of photography and brochures. Very importantly you put my mind at rest and judged your approach perfectly
Nothing seemed too much trouble. You were willing to listen to my moans and groans, you were unfailingly polite and I would have no hesitation in recommending you – which I have, in fact, already done.

When you decide to sell a country house, a farm or an estate, the reassurance that comes from instructing a respected firm counts for everything.

You want to be happy dealing with the individual on the end of the phone, secure in the knowledge that they have the necessary skills and expertise to achieve the best possible outcome for you and your asset. You want a team that you can trust will go that extra mile for you – in the professionalism of their marketing, in the quality of their communications, and in the hours that they spend finding the right buyer for your property.

That is precisely why our clients put their trust in us. And it’s why they continue to do so, time and time again, often recommending us to family and friends. It’s the reason why 80% of our business is from repeat customers. And it’s why our first ever estate-owning client is still with us after more than 160 years.

OUR SPECIALIST SERVICES

If you’re selling a large country estate or farm, it’s critically important to promote it beyond local networks to buyers in London and overseas. This is where our specialist London Country Department plays such an important role, assisting in the sale of high-value homes and estates. The team acts as a communications link between our country offices and our London buyers and international investors.

Carter Jonas is one of the UK’s busiest agencies in this field, matching tenants to land and land to tenants all over the country. Much of the 1,300,000 acres we manage is tenanted, so we have a great deal of experience working with tenant farmers. We can advise on all kinds of tenancies, leading farmers through legal U-bends and bringing a shrewd eye to agricultural opportunities.

Property is valued for a purpose. A Carter Jonas valuation report will help you achieve that purpose whether your asset is a building or land, residential or commercial, or for sale, purchase, development or tax.

Our offices across the country are linked by teams of RICS-registered valuers, who are ready and able to support your valuation needs, wherever you and your property assets are located. As such, our capabilities are always local and, with more than 70 valuers, we have an expert for every kind of property and valuation need. The different purposes for a valuation often require different approaches and varied skill sets. We acknowledge and respond to those differences and will commit exactly the right resources to produce the valuation you need. Our service is personal and individually tailored. A partner heads up each of our valuation teams, and every team member has proven expertise.

The combined effect is worth so much more than just procedural efficiency and numerical accuracy. A Carter Jonas valuation report adds value to the whole proposition. 

We act for many high-profile individuals who value the advice and discretion that our buying service provides. With our ears close to the ground, we often buy off-market and keep a sharp eye on the purchase right up to completion.

During the transaction we can call on the expertise of our architecture, planning or development teams, and in the longer term, if you are looking for a team to manage the property for you, we could do that also. Whatever route we follow, it is always conducted with the sole aim of achieving the best possible outcome for you.
