About Henry Adams estate agents

We’re one of the region’s favourite estate agents – and so much more

We’re proud to be known as our region’s favourite estate agent – but there’s so much more to Henry Adams than being experts in property sales and lettings. We’ve got a long, rich heritage, the finest teams in the industry and a superb range of professional and property-related services that our customers continue to trust when they need sound, specialist advice.

A rich heritage that speaks volumes about us

We owe it all to the late Henry Adams who formed the company in 1990 having been a partner of a local, independent firm of agents. He’d spent many years working alongside farmers in the area and had conducted livestock auctions in Chichester since the 60s.

His experience in property, surveying and auctioneering within our rural communities served him well. It ensured the Henry Adams name would become synonymous with expert property services and grow into the leading multidisciplinary firm of estate agents and chartered surveyors it is today. Pictured are the details of the first property we ever sold.

Our people

Everyone here at Henry Adams cares deeply about making a difference, especially when it comes to matching people with a property we know they’ll love – and that’s the passion that’s made Henry Adams one of the most trusted estate agent in our region.

We’re independent too, which means the advice we offer is always impartial and based only on what’s best for you. You’ll find this professional approach at each of our 16 branches where our friendly teams of specialists have all the local knowledge you need to help you make your next step the right one.

Why not visit us and see why doing things differently really does make life easier.

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.
