April Homes are property advisers covering Bury St Edmunds, Newmarket, Cambridge and surrounding villages.

Ask us what makes us different!

April Homes are an independent family-owned business, established in 2009, and part of Scourfield-Thomas & Associates – a financial advisers’ practice which has been providing advice on property matters since 1982. 

Having gained a great deal of experience working as estate agents, and combined with our parent company’s 37+ years of experience in the financial services – and wider property market, we have decided to shift our focus to become a consultancy business.

Looking for advice regarding your home or investment property? 

We will be able to provide advice and guidance on areas including, but not limited to:

• Property presentation,

• General sales issues,

• The role of third-party professionals – including mortgage advisors, conveyancing solicitors, and independent property surveyors.

We have always had a keen in interest in property, in Gareth’s case from a very early age – with a father who built his own family homes, and a grandfather who was in the building trade and later the clerk of works for a local authority.

We feel that we can offer a more impartial and unbiased service to you as independent property advisers, rather than estate agents.

Call us now on the numbers above. We can visit you at your property, where you can tell us your plans and how we can help. Alternatively please complete our contact form.

As independent property advisers covering Bury St Edmunds, Newmarket, Cambridge, and surrounding villages we are able to provide property advice and appraisals across Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, and Norfolk.

From our previous activities as an independent estate agency – we know how to help you get the best price on both the national and local property market.

My solicitor recommended April Homes to value my mother’s bungalow. As a result we placed the sale of the bungalow to them. We found them to be very attentive to detail and sales strategy.

After 6 weeks they found a buyer and fostered completion in another 6 weeks liaising continuously with solicitors, buyer and seller until the buyer had taken up residence in the bungalow.

They have the integrity to treat all their clients with respect and give appropriate advice at appropriate parts of their transactions.

Dear Gareth

I cannot thank you enough for all the hard work that you have done on my behalf. You are totally professional, doing everything possible to get the property sold. Almost like a pit bull, you get your teeth into your work and do not let go until everything is completed… …You are one in a million.

Kindest regards and many thanks

We recently bought our home in Thetford through April Homes. We found them to be attentive and helpful throughout the buying process and we would recommend them to others.

Thank you April Homes.

Having just sold our house through April Homes, I can honestly say that my wife and I found the service we received better than we’ve ever experienced elsewhere.
I’d used the agency once before and had dealt directly with Gareth throughout the process. I was delighted that he was able to handle this latest sale himself as I’d been so impressed with him the first time.
Gareth gives straight, honest answers to questions and, unlike other agencies I’ve dealt with, does not make promises he can’t keep. The advice he gave us proved to be sound in every respect, and we always had the impression that, for Gareth, his integrity comes before his profit! At all stages of the process Gareth was accessible and understanding – I’m sure that anxious house-sellers like us can be a little demanding at times, but Gareth was always prepared to take the time to talk things through and reassure us when we needed it. He also popped in and checked the heating was correctly set when the house was standing empty – not many agencies offer that level of service!

April Homes were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. As a first time buyer most things were new to me but Gareth and the team were extremely patient and helpful. Simple things like always returning calls and keeping me updated is why I will be using them in the future.

April Homes were recommended to me by my letting agent. I can honestly say that if it hadn’t been for Gareth being so vigilant and thorough in his dealings with clients, I would still have my house on the market !! We had difficult 3rd parties and Gareth diligently pursued estate agents and solicitors to enable me to reach a final successful sale !! Thank you Gareth for all your help and I would definitely recommend your services to anyone making enquiries

All the best for the future

Straight away with Gareth I realised there was something different with his estate agent than the others I had previously experienced, and that was his honesty.
He told me exactly how it was regarding the property I was viewing, which was comforting when making a big financial decision.
Not only this, he was more than accommodating with any requests or queries I had.
Great estate agent that you can honestly trust.
