We are able to offer an extensive and comprehensive range of property services in Sidmouth and the surrounding area.

We are also Sidmouths longest established Estate Agent. Harrison-Lavers was formed in 1978. Potbury's Estate Agents was established in the late 1890s and the two firms merged in 1985. Over the years we have built a reputation for providing a high level of professionalism and expertise, together with traditional values, excellent service and common courtesy. We are able to offer a wide range of property services and these include both residential and commercial sales and lettings. We have extensive experience in residential property management, as well as valuations that are carried out for all manner of purposes. Today Harrison-Lavers & Potbury's continue to provide a high standard of service to our clients. We are independent of any financial institution, bank or building society and we believe in personal service for the client concerned.

Although we are known for our traditional values, do not make the mistake that we are old- fashioned. We have embraced modern technology and use it to provide our clients with the best possible service. We occupy prominent and well-appointed offices in the town centre, with the Estate Agency and Letting Department on the ground floor of our building, together with our Professional and Management Departments on the two upper floors.

Mr and Mrs B

"To Jay and the team, We just wanted to say a massive thank you for all of your help with both sales. You've offered amazing advice and a much needed guiding hand throughout this process. We are very grateful indeed."

Mr and Mrs A

Thanks to all you and your colleagues did to get us in. I will remain impressed by your evident experience and contacts as we learned far more from you about our sale/purchase than we did from anyone else!! We will happily recommend Harrison-Lavers to anyone wishing to buy/sell.

Mr and Mrs J

"Thanks for all your practical and moral support in our happy move..."

Ms S

To all at Harrison Lavers, We got there in the end and I really cant thank you all enough for looking after me so well. You have ALL always gone that extra mile to make sure everything was OK and I really appreciated that so much. Thank you from my heart and I wish you all the very best as I say 'Goodbye to Sidmouth'.

Mrs L

Dear Mr Thorne I wanted to thank you for the excellent service provided by Mandy Lewis recently. She accompanied my husband and I on several viewings and was extremely helpful and friendly while maintaining her professionalism. Mandy was one of the best estate agents we met as she understands the importance of providing great customer service. She has also been a pleasure to deal with as her bubbly personality always shone through. Despite several disappointments Mandy continued to support us in our search, even providing advice about the Seaton market, and taking an interest in the property we have secured (STC) near Honiton - through another agent, alas! So many thanks again to Mandy. I would certainly recommend her and your estate agency to potential clients. Best wishes Mrs L

Mr G

Dear All, May I take this opportunity to say how impressed I have been with your companies work all the way through from valuation to completion, 5 star service. Kind Regards. Mr G

Mr and Mrs R

Completion took place today without any problems, so I just wanted to thank you and all the others involved at Harrison & Lavers for making the sale a stress-free experience.

Mr and Mrs M

"Dear Annette and Cath (and all the HL&P team - which actually manages to work together while the rest of the world is falling apart!). I can't express how grateful I am for all you achieved on this, almost unbearably, difficult sale! I hope you can now sleep more easily! Thank you!

Miss P

"Your pro-activeness has never gone unnoticed and you have been so supportive the whole way through. Thank you for your hard work. I will definitely recommend you to any friends who move!"

Mr and Mrs H

"Thank you very much for your help, patience and understanding. We really appreciated your guidance when things got a little stressful!"
