As estate agents in Bury St Edmunds, Newmarket and Cambridge, we at April Homes understand that buying and selling a house can be one of the most stressful activities you’ll ever undertake. It also revolves around possibly the largest investment you are ever likely to make in your lifetime.

That’s why, unlike some recent entrants to the estate agency market, we focus not only on looking after our buyer and seller clients but also on ensuring that all our paperwork is clear and all our communication is jargon-free. We are also very transparent about our fee structure and contracts.

As a family-owned business which is run by the original founders, we have an impressive track record, boasting nine years of local market experience and knowledge, including full sales-progression skills. We also have close links with reputable third-party businesses such as solicitors and mortgage brokers.

As Gareth Scourfield-Thomas, founding partner of April Homes, explains, the company’s philosophy is to be open and honest at all times. ‘When you place your property with April Homes, or deal with us as a buyer, you’ll find that there are no hidden fees in our contracts and there are no hidden finance arrangements,’ says Gareth. ‘Our contracts are written in plain English and are fair and unambiguous. There are no lengthy tie-in periods, and we pride ourselves on our honesty and integrity.

‘We stick to our principles throughout every transaction, and we’re finding more and more that that generates repeat business further down the line. Several of our clients have now gone on either to move or expand their property portfolio and they invariably engage us to help them through to completion. It’s very gratifying to be trusted, and we take it as a reflection of our commitment to act in the best interests of our clients at all times.’
