About Rural View
Rural View is a niche estate agency providing a highly experienced, professional and personal residential property service. We specialise in selling, letting and managing country, village and market town property from our offices in South Wiltshire, covering Wiltshire, Dorset, Somerset and Hampshire.
We have established a proud reputation for offering a diverse choice of homes for sale and rent, from dream country cottages to family houses, farmhouses with land and new builds. Sellers, buyers, landlords and tenants have been enthusiastically complimentary about our good honest advice, regular communication, prompt feedback and individual attention as a well as our friendly and efficient approach – all of which really makes the difference to the property moving experience.
We see ourselves as a boutique style of firm offering a more personal, hands-on approach than that usually given by the larger, faceless corporate companies. We may be small, but that means we care more and in this digital age Rural View has as wide a global reach as the big boys!
Rural View is known for producing superior marketing material including well written meaningful text, professionally taken photographs, good quality floor plans and prominent advertising.
We are absolutely committed to doing the very best for our clients and customers and our ethos is to treat them how we would want to be treated ourselves. This has led to many of our instructions being as a result of personal recommendations – a most satisfactory means of gaining new business.
Not only are we seen as the local property experts but having been based in the area for many years, we are very knowledgeable about our patch and are more than happy to chat about the nearest school, pub, shop, railway station, cricket club and much more.
If you are looking to buy, sell, rent or let a property or have one that needs to be managed, whether it’s a thatched cottage, a bungalow or old Georgian rectory, do get in touch – we are here to help!
