The First ncz Certified Silver Estate Agency in Our Area
Arden Estates are proud to announce that we have now achieved NCZ silver certification, signifying that all of the scope 1, 2 and 3 organisational emissions of our business have been assessed, reported on and offset. This process enables us to set our carbon footprint baseline and create a targeted approach to carbon reduction, and as all currently unavoidable emissions have been officially and verifiably offset, establishes Arden Estates as a carbon neutral business. This completes the first phase of our comprehensive four phase carbon management programme.
The Arden Story
Every great story starts with a humble beginning, and Arden Estates is no different.
In 2010, while the UK was gripped by a credit crunch that saw slow property sales, our Founder, Jon Whitehead saw a niche in the property market for an estate agency that did things a little differently.
While others were focused on making quick sales, Arden wanted to deliver a high-quality service that made time to match potential buyers with their ideal property.
This approach meant that not only did the early days of Arden Estates see a flourishing start, but it also meant that there was a buzz around the new business that attracted vendors, buyers – and a business partner.

Customer Care Above All Else…
By the middle of 2010, James Cope joined Jon on his mission to be the premier estate agency in Redditch.
Fast-forward 12 years and Arden Estates still lives by its initial ethos to put customer care above everything else. We now have six branches located throughout the West Midlands, with a team of over 50 people working together to make Arden Estates the most approachable and innovative company in the area.
What Makes Arden Estates Different?
A Property Revolution
If founding an estate agency during a credit crunch taught us anything, it’s resilience and innovation. The revolutionary process and strategies we have developed mean that your property is more likely to find a suitable buyer more quickly.
You’re In Control
We are confident in our methods. In fact, we are so confident that we don’t need to tie you into a long-term contract to keep your property on our books; you won’t pay us until your property sells. And if you feel like waiting a while or changing agency, we just ask for 28 days’ written notice.
We Know Property
Our knowledge of property is extensive. Jon & James spent their career understanding the property market and our success is testament to this. From understanding the psychology of buyers through to creative and effective property marketing, our sellers always know they’re in good hands.
House of Arden
Did you know that we have a dedicated team that stages empty or part empty properties? What started as a rejected idea (luckily our employee Sarah doesn’t give up easily!)… has become the feather in the cap of Arden Estates. Over 100 homes have benefited from increased appeal that led to a sale at an increased value – all thanks to the interior styling that House of Arden provides.
There’s Nothing To Lose With Arden Estates
Listing your property with us costs you nothing until your sale completes. And even then, our fees are incredibly competitive (around 1% plus VAT) so you can reap the rewards of your property sale.
Our risk-free guarantee means that there are no upfront fees, we cover all of the initial marketing expenses. You only pay once your house sale is done and dusted.
Why Property Will Always Be Our Passion
To us, property is more than just bricks and mortar. It’s the love someone pours into their home. It’s the future that someone is looking towards. It’s the hope and excitement a new home provides.
We do more than list houses on a website.
We find out why you want to sell and what you want to achieve. And then we work as hard as possible to match your property to a buyer – because there is no satisfaction like being part of the start of a new future for both a seller and a buyer. It’s a privilege we have enjoyed over 5600 times.
Why Choose Arden Estates?
1: You’re More Than Your Property
You are more than your property to us. We care about your circumstances and your needs. Want a discreet sale? No problem. Need viewings that suit your family or work life? Just let us know. We see you as an individual, not just a house to be sold.
2: Updates That Keep You In The Picture
Selling your home is a big deal. We make sure you are kept up to date with how your home is doing on the market, any feedback potential buyers may have and ideas we have for keeping your listing fresh.
3: Honest Guidance
We pride ourselves on being straight-talking and completely honest. If we think your property could do better with some TLC, we’ll tell you. If we think your ideal price might be a bit high, we’ll explain why we think it might hinder your sale. Our advice is free and given with your best outcome in mind.
4: A Revolutionary Approach
Why don’t we have long-term contracts that tie you in? Because we don’t need them. Our approach to property sales may be unorthodox, but we prefer our clients to feel totally confident in their choice of estate agent – and if that confidence wanes, they can give us notice to leave. You can enjoy our services risk-free.
