Bespoke Property Search

Whatever the market, the best is always in demand….

About Colin Mackenzie Property Search

We offer over fifty years’ experience of the country house market across the south east particularly in both Kent and Sussex and have been finding houses for our clients for the past twenty.

Being property search agents in the local area we know the best commuting routes, the hidden villages, the best schools – as well as the key people in the main selling agencies.

We are well known ‘on the ground’ having established excellent contacts with all the leading estate agents in the area – and have a love of buildings and what makes them tick; we are probably the only professionally qualified independent property search agency in the area.

What we do

We ensure that our clients get the best possible value. Having established just what they do – and do not – want from their property purchase, we make sure we leave no stone unturned in tracking down the right property.

As established property search agents in Kent and Sussex we know our areas intimately and we save wasted journeys by screening out the unsuitable, checking out the right properties and working with our clients right through the whole transaction.

Our service is not confined to the search and acquisition of the best houses – we can help with a multitude of ownership issues.

We can advise on or negotiate the purchase of a house that you have found yourself, other relocation issues (eg commercial property search), on maximising asset return,  planning issues (policy for extensions or additions), before bringing in specialists, and undertake regular market analysis

We offer a wealth of experience across the whole of the South East.

We know and have bought properties for clients in Kent, East Sussex, West Sussex, Surrey and into Hampshire; in towns, villages and open countryside.

We know where the most suitable local schools are (click here for a full list), how best to commute, which parts of the countryside are protected, what the major changes in planning policy are likely to be, where the main air routes are, etc..

Each area has its own nuances and agency coverage – whether local or from London – it is our job to know where to look and who to contact.

  • Thank you for all your support, particularly over the last three months as you helped wrestle our purchase to the ground…

    We have really enjoyed working with you. You have provided boundless energy and enthusiasm and have been a great source of advice. House buying is such a complicated and stressful process. Your experience and balance has been invaluable and I am not sure we would have managed t without you. We will recommend you unreservedly to family and friends.

    Mr & Mrs JR, East Sussex
