Longer Opening Hours

We appreciate more than others, the demands of living and working in Chester. This is why at Carman Friend we offer more accessible hours, including viewings not only on the weekend, but into the evening too. Sami and Gareth also appreciate their clients may need them at times where most estate agents are closed, you have their mobile numbers and personal emails, and they are always open!

Personal Touch

From start to finish you will have one contact that will know all there is to know about your property and your selling/buying position. As a private and independently owned company, Gareth and Sami pride themselves on a high quality and personal service.

Local Knowledge

Having covered the local market for over 35 years combined, we have a unique insight into the property market through the sheer volume of properties we have dealt with over the years! We carry out numerous valuations every month, giving client’s unparalleled knowledge of property values across Chester and the surrounding villages.

We ensure that we generate the enquiries that in most cases lead to the 1st viewing, you can’t beat getting to know your buyers and being able to introduce them to your property. It is just as important to know them as it is to know you! The Carman Friend Way of 1 – 1 contact allows for truly constructive feedback from the person that met the viewer. The personal touch! Intentionally different!
