About us

Whilst we maybe best known for selling houses of all types in all price ranges, we do in fact offer a wide range of other professional and property-related services, the quality of which is without parallel in the region.

Our history

The company was first formed in 1990 by the late Henry Adams, who had previously been a partner of another local independent firm, and who had worked alongside many of the farmers in the area for many years. Henry conducted livestock auctions in Chichester as long ago as the 1960’s, and brought with him a huge wealth of experience. Pictured are the details of the first property we ever sold. Now with a network of offices across Sussex and into Hampshire and Surrey, we have grown into one of the leading multi discipline firms of estate agents and chartered surveyors in the region.

Our people

As an independent company with active Partners we feel the same connection to the business as we imagine you do with your home. We’ve invested in Henry Adams to make it the best it can be, building it into a well-known, trusted and respected local brand.

With a broad network of 14 offices across Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire, our coverage is the widest in the region. Step inside any of these offices and you’ll find teams of people with high levels of local knowledge.


All our brochures in one place, find the one that’s right for you. Whether it’s Residential Sales, Buy-to-Let or Commercial, they’re all here. Once you’ve had a flick through them, why not head over to one of our sales or lettings pages.

Our communities

Community means much more to us than just knowing the local housing market. Our support for a number of local charities and schools sees Henry Adams people involved at the very heart.

Professional conduct

Our reputation as one of the most respected estate agencies in the region has been achieved by the superior quality of service we provide to our clients. We observe strict codes of conduct throughout our operation and our industry accreditations and membership of these respected professional bodies is a testament to this ethic.


We work to ensure you never miss a potential buyer – even if they’re outside the region – and look for niche and targeted marketing routes to promote your property to the biggest possible audience.

We have an affiliation with The London Office, a long-established agency that specialises in bringing London buyers and provincial sellers together. Henry Adams is the only local estate agent you’ll find at The London Office’s annual Move To The Country Show.

With seven Henry Adams offices in coastal locations, we understand the waterside property market well. We can advertise coastal homes to a national audience through our exclusive link to Waterside Properties, the UK’s leading agency for marine, coastal, riverside and waterfront homes. You will also find us exclusively at the London and Southampton Boat Shows.


We are always looking for motivated and enthusiastic new staff to join our dynamic teams and pursue a varied and rewarding career.

Henry Adams provides training and support encouraging staff to progress within the company.

Our staff take pride in working for Henry Adams and stay with us, enjoying the team spirit and rewards that a successful career with us can bring.
