Independently minded estate and lettings agency.

Yaxley homes was founded in 2010 on the belief that estate agents could do a lot better.

We’ve been working in the industry for a long time and we’re frustrated that most agencies are just so ordinary, like their houses. These places were in need of a new lick of paint, had a bit of rising damp in the basement too.

So we decided to build our own home.

This new home wasn’t made of sticks or straw. It was founded on a deep rooted,

decade long knowledge of property, from the very bricks and mortar of the town centre to its outer reaches, by a team of savy

individuals who loved the town and loved

helping people invest, move and live all over the UK.

A team of quick thinkers and good listeners who did that rare thing. Treat customers like people instead of transactions. Because they knew great service wasn’t just about experience and expertise.

We had one Philosophy, to keep the promises we made. We then opened the doors.
