Welcome to Country Properties Estate Agents and Letting Agents Hatfield


Thank you for looking at our page. We would like to introduce ourselves; we are Linda and Zoe a mother and daughter team who opened Country Properties, Hatfield, in January 2007 with the intention of offering excellent customer service and always acting in our clients’ best interest to secure the best possible sales or rental price.  We pride ourselves on customer service with a ‘do as you say’ attitude which sounds simple but for most agents it goes amiss!

We have been thrilled by the amount of repeat business we have and excellent reviews we have received confirming we are ‘doing as we say!’ – Both of which are really appreciated.  With our team of very able staff we offer full Sales and Lettings services for all types of properties throughout the AL10 and AL9 postcodes together with surrounding villages.

To us; whether you are selling or letting a Studio or Mansion we assure you of a warm welcome and professional service to ensure your objective is met – to Sell or Let your property for the best price in the smoothest manner! We value our clients and work towards building lasting relationships.

We can offer advice on all aspects of selling or letting your home and visiting us is easy as we are a short walk away from Hatfield train station, situated in a Georgian Style Parade, the office is in a very prominent position being probably one of the first things you will see as you drive in to the Old Town of Hatfield and there is a handy car park adjacent to the office with free parking for up to 2 hours. 

To experience a unique service with staff who care about your needs and are enthusiastic about your property please contact us for a FREE market Appraisal for Sales or rentals.

Having spoken to about 50 agents over the past 4 months, I can safely say Tim and the team at Country Properties are head and shoulders above the rest. Extremely knowledgeable, honest, not pushy, and consultative. If thinking of buying/selling in the area use with confidence.

Mr Ollie J

I must praise Zoe for the excellent customer service she provided us with when we moved to Hatfield. She helped us find the right property in a nice neighbourhood for our budget. I would highly recommend country properties Hatfield to any one.

Mr Sadiq U

We bought our house through Country Properties and subsequently let it out and sold it successfully with their help. We can strongly recommend all aspects of their services. Everyone in the office is a pleasure to deal with, and their professional expertise is impressive
