What are
my property
search fees?

As an independent property search consultant, I can afford to keep my fees lower than many other buying agents.

How much does a
buying agent cost?

Work with me for a fair price. Many of my clients find they save the value of my fee in the savings made on the negotiated property price. You will also save the cost associated with travel and time away from work and home, and avoid the risk and expense of buying the wrong house.

Property search
fee guidelines

Every project is unique which means that providing a one-size fits all fee isn’t realistic. To help you plan your budget, here is a breakdown of my fees.

I can support you with far more than simply finding the perfect home. Book my tailored range of one-off services including area tours, negotiation support, property suitability reviews and refurbishment support.

  • Professional second opinions. I can visit a property on your behalf to provide a view on its desirability and suitability for your needs.

Bob and Louisa, Farnham

We were looking for a fairly specific type of property with land and potential. Sam was very well connected in the local area and helped us understand the on-costs of buying such a property. She also guided us in many other areas of the house sale and purchase process, saving us time and money.


Ellen and Rupert, Wimbledon

Sam’s support in finding a house has been invaluable to us. For all the properties we looked at with her we were always the first to view and many were completely off-market. She is the perfect partner to help find your dream home.


Claire and Mick, Geneva

An international relocation at very short notice! Sam managed the impossible task – finding us a lovely rental in a great location. Sam’s hard work, responsiveness, persistence, local knowledge and calm approach were absolutely key. She has also been on hand for us through the transition. Sam is an absolute pleasure to work with, we recommend her wholeheartedly and will be using her for our onward purchase!


James Webster, Hamptons Estate Agent

Sam is a pleasure to work with and stands out amongst the many Search Agents out there.
Extremely proactive, understands her clients’ needs and wants and doesn’t miss an opportunity. If you are looking for straight talking advice and some of the stress taken out of the process of buying a home, along with finding the needle in the haystack then have a conversation with Sam!


Amanda and Greg, Farnham

Sam is fantastic! I was initially sceptical of using a Search Agent to find a property, but it has been an excellent decision. She has great knowledge of the local market, agents and prices and has found us a great house, well within budget. Her deep market awareness gave us the confidence to leave houses that were unsuitable either due to location, timings or price, subsequently dealing with the Agent to ensure an easy transaction when we found the right property


Katie and Jonny, London

Sam was an absolute delight to work with. We’d never even thought of using a property buying agent before this move and now we wonder how anyone gets through a move without one! We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sam to anyone.


Emily and Kit, Farnham

Given the current housing climate we would not have stood a chance at finding our house without Sam. Her charisma and unrelenting energy, and dedication to the cause is something to be reckoned with. We could not be more pleased with the experience Sam has delivered and would highly recommend working with her.


Tracey and Paul, Hindhead

Working with Sam really added credibility to our position when viewing and bidding on properties. She always went above and beyond to ensure that she got us through the door first to view properties on and off market. With the property market being so volatile we really felt that having her experience to guide us during the bidding and negotiation process ultimately ensured that we got the house we wanted at the best price. We really couldn’t recommend her services enough.


Jess and Jonny, Los Angeles

From day one we knew we were in safe hands. We gave Sam a tough brief as a family of five with a long list of wants. Incredibly Sam found us a property off-market that ticked every one of the boxes at the bottom end of our budget. We wouldn’t hesitate to work with Sam again or recommend her.


David Carter, House Partnership Estate Agent

We very much enjoy working with Sam … She has a good understanding of what her clients may be looking for and is happy to explore ideas to find the right property. The work does not stop once the house is found, and Sam shows a good understanding of the legal process and can help get the transaction through. It has been a pleasure to work with her.


Lucy and Iain, Malvern

Sam has been instrumental in guiding and counselling us through the unfamiliar world of house buying. She has always provided us with a clear and balanced perspective, ensured she understood the whole picture and has been an incredibly reassuring presence when we have needed to make big decisions. With her help we have secured a property which will be a superb investment and fantastic family home and we absolutely would not have reached this point without her expertise.


Rachel and Mark, Ewshot

After a year of our own unsuccessful search we appointed Sam. She immediately got exactly what we were looking for off-market. She gave incredibly helpful advice throughout the search, offer and negotiation and absolutely found us our dream house. We would definitely recommend her to anyone having trouble finding their perfect property!
