About Us

Welcome to Graves Son & Pilcher

Our success and longevity reflect our passion for excellence and meticulous personalised care of our clients needs.

Our Residential Sales and Letting Department is led by Partner, Andy Lees.

Andy’s success is built on his core values of professionalism, transparency and client–centred service.



"Thank-you for your warm help aiding us to move home. It has been nothing short of a pleasure dealing with you. You have been on time for every appointment, really friendly and have followed up on everything I have asked about. The only shame is that we are not going to see you any more! Good luck with your qualifications and study."

Mr Scott


"We currently rent a flat via GSP. Unlike many other companies, GSP remains the Manager of the property and we have been given the Property Manager as our main point of contact. From the first viewing to the management of intangibles, through to the signing of the lease and collecting the keys GSP has always responded quickly and professionally thus giving both tenants and landlords a positive experience."

"Could you please pass my very best wishes and thanks onto to the staff at Graves Son, particularly Paul. In the 7 years plus we were renting Upper Rock Gardens we have been extremely impressed and appreciative of the professionalism and standard of customer service we received. We always highly recommend the company to friends and family as a result."

Kind regards,


“I would recommend Graves Son Pilcher to anyone who is looking to rent. Not only was I impressed by all their help and guidance, the staff went over and above to make the process of rental for me and my young daughter run as smoothly as possible, they had a very friendly and personal approach! Thank you”

As a first time buyer, Graves, Son and Pilcher have been friendly and helpful throughout the process and quick to respond to all my questions. If all estate agents were like this, they certainly wouldn't have a bad reputation! I would highly recommend them.

We had had mediocre experiences with estate agents in the past and did not have high expectations. However instantly we took a like to the non-pushy friendly approach from Michael and Georgina who seemed to actually understand what we were looking for within our budget. We actually went to see a flat other than the one we had found with them on the internet and on their suggestion fell in love with it. The agents were professional, honest and friendly during the negotiation process with the landlady and we felt everything was handled very fairly. We cannot recommend them enough.  The service was far more personal than other "big chain" estate agencies and we would use them again without hesitation. AS and JB

The idea of moving house is daunting, the thought alone causes stress. Georgina has made the entire experience a comfortable one; no question was unanswered, no task was too troublesome. I would definitely recommend Graves, Son & Pilcher to others. Thank you again, I'm certain I will be back for my next move!
