“At Aylesford our professionals’ combined expertise spans more years than we dare count. Importantly, it’s also available under one roof. Couple this with our exceptionally wide connections, and we can achieve results that others can’t.

Our tight-knit group is a natural home for confidential instructions. And no chain can rival the sheer concentration of expertise we bring together under one roof. We are one team working with a single purpose: For the benefit of our clients.

Buyers and tenants who register with Aylesford tend to be like-minded: they are looking for a certain quality and standard of property. They are also driven by value, rather than the narrower criterion of price alone.

Good property therefore finds a highly receptive audience through Aylesford. In addition, your sale or rental receives the full armoury of digital marketing techniques.

As well as being listed on this site, all of our properties are automatically uploaded to the leading online property portals, including Rightmove and OnTheMarket. These are proven and effective in taking properties to a worldwide audience. Indeed, around 50% of our total sales come from international buyers.

We are also leading tacticians in PR. Our properties are regularly featured by broadsheets and upmarket magazines in their property pages, and this translates directly into hits on our website and enquiries on the phone.”

Andrew Langton, Chairman

“In a single year we may sell more than £450m of the highest quality property. We believe our independence is instrumental in achieving excellent results for our clients.

We have no inter-branch politics or fiefdoms. Nor do our sellers and buyers find themselves handed from one branch to another. We are the single point of contact whether it’s Chelsea or Mayfair, Belgravia or Battersea.

Indeed, in the last 50 years we have sold more than £20 billion worth of very fine property.”

Catherine Cockcroft, Director, London Lettings

“Yesterday, I showed a corporate tenant eighteen different London properties.

Today, we’re processing a 3-year lease on a beautiful home at £20,000 a week. And all the while my team is supervising refurbishments, attending to fixes and inspections, checking bank references and a myriad of other detail.

That’s why I claim - well I would, wouldn’t I? - that residential letting is the truly sharp end of the property business. We not only enable the initial match between a property and a high-quality tenant. We then nurture that relationship, seven days a week.

In a typical year, we collect in excess of £20m in rent. And I’m proud that we have worked continuously with many landlords, relocation agents and corporate tenants since the 1980s."

Numa Heathcote, International Negotiator

“Aylesford was one of the first agencies to venture abroad, back in the 1970s. Since then we have made firm friends and created alliances in some of the world’s most desirable locations.

This gives us an inside track on some very well-kept secrets. So whether you’re looking for a chalet in Gstaad, a palazzo in Rome, a mooring in the Caribbean or an estate in Marrakech, we sell, rent and hunt down exquisite property in breathtaking locations.

Importantly, we can also guide you every inch of the way, including navigating the very different legal systems around the world.”
