We’re a breed of small(ish) estate agency, helping people find and enjoy their new home. Our watchword is honesty, so you’ll find a refreshing absence of estate agent-ese, over-the-top hype or the dreaded hidden fees. With us, your needs are always our top priority.
ONE MAN – ONE IDEA
Here’s Chris, our founder. He worked with major high street estate agency brands for over 30 years, amassing a wealth of local knowledge. Then he had an idea of doing things slightly differently. Where success is measured by the width of someone’s smile as much as by figures on a balance sheet. Thus, Hound & Porter was born.
Reigate has been our local neighbourhood for 20 years, and it’s an easy place to love. Great schools, fast London connections, boutique shopping, independent cafes, lovely restaurants and a real community feel all year round. Oh, and beautiful countryside right on your doorstep. Sounds good, doesn’t it?
OUR VISION –THE HOUND
Tenacious. Boundless energy. Always alert and always ready to head out on the hunt. That’s how we feel about finding your ideal place, or tracking down exactly the right people to move into yours. Yet we don’t get over-excited, yapping on and on about houses that deep down we know just aren’t right for you. We listen to exactly what you want, then keep on searching until we find it.
WITH YOU ALL THE WAY – THE PORTER
You want help from someone who’s more than just a commission-driven sales rep when you move house. You deserve the support of a team of people who handle everything with enthusiasm, knowing exactly what to do and who to speak to, no matter what you throw at them. Imagine us as your personal concierge, always on hand to get things done with a smile, and with the absolute minimum of fuss.

DECADES OF EXPERIENCE
You’d be hard pushed to find anyone with quite as much knowledge as Peter when it comes to property development. He originally trained as an architect, developing such an eye for detail that he can find inventive solutions that give buildings that little something extra. He has spent the last 30 years at one of the most respected property developers in the country, and now applies all that expertise at our boutique estate agency.
