Our experience with Country Properties has been excellent! They are very responsive and professional. And they really understand the local market. They valued our house perfectly and even predicted the type of buyer we would attract - they were spot on. I highly recommend getting in touch with Jamie, Steph and the team if you're considering selling your house

E Methvan

Initially I used another (online) agent for selling my period property. This was a very disappointing experience. The house was marketed for 4 months with a low number of viewings. I then signed with Country Properties in Shefford. I found CP to be traditional estate agency at its best, day and night versus the previous agent. Professional and friendly service, high rate of interest generated. The property received an acceptable offer quickly and the CP team followed through on their promise to actively manage the sale process (communications with chain and solicitors) with regular updates.

M Foster

We first purchased a buy to let property from Jamie and the sales team. He was so attentive and kept us up to date every step of the way. We then asked Debbie and the lettings team to let our property. Within 24hours of instructing Country Properties we were given a couple of good options for tenants. Extremely reliable and professional both sales and lettings. I cannot recommend Country Properties enough. As our first buy to let we were offered so much help and information. Nothing was too much to ask! Great agency


The team at Country Properties were fantastic during the process of our sale & purchase. Steph & Jamie worked very hard to keep it all on track, despite multiple delays cropping up. Communication was excellent & we were kept well informed at each stage. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Country Properties.
