About Us

There are so many reasons to choose Hastings to sell or let your property and we'd love to tell  you in person but here are just a few reasons that make us a refreshing choice and  help set us apart from other Estate Agents.

Energy and dedication
As an independent, No sale-No fee agent, we take our job seriously. Recommendation- About 65% of our  business comes from repeat business, client referral and recommendations.

Bespoke, personal service
We work for you and you do not work for us! We offer a personal service that many Estate Agents can’t. Let us take the strain.

The owners of the business will be on hand to ensure that your expectations and goals are met from day 1 to completion!

We know the area
We’ve worked in the Tilehurst and West Reading area for many years and know the area better than anyone else.

We look forward to hearing from you soon to discuss how we can help and the many more benefits of using Hastings Estate Agents to sell or let your home.
