Payne & Co. Estate Agents

Selling your home.

You've come to the right place

The first stage in selling a property is to obtain a valuation. We offer a free valuation service if you are selling a property in Oxted or the surrounding area, backed up by generations of unrivalled knowledge. We can give you realistic advice about the property market and how to achieve the best sale price.


Payne & Co. is an independent, well-respected and trusted local estate agency with long-standing ties to the community and unrivalled knowledge and experience in selling houses in Oxted and the surrounding areas. We have helped generations of local families buy and sell properties and have sold some properties many times over!

We pride ourselves in providing a personal and proactive service, focused on achieving the best results possible for our clients. We recognise that a ‘one size fits all’ method is not the approach to adopt, particularly in a region where there is so much variety of local housing stock. Each client is therefore allocated a specific company director (with the valuable support of our experienced sales team) who will devise a tailored sales strategy and implement the marketing campaign.

We are frequently approached by home sellers who have received poor valuation and marketing advice, and consequently they are unable to sell their home. Often the relationship with their existing estate agent has irreparably broken down because of the loss of trust. In this situation, Payne & Co. can step in to identify why a sale has not yet been agreed and form a plan of action to make the sale happen.

Payne & Co. only operates on a ‘no sale, no fee’ basis. Standard within all our marketing packages is the use of web, social media, newspaper and shop window advertising, together with professional photography and accompanied viewings. Aerial drone video footage and virtual property tours can also be arranged to showcase the property if we believe this will genuinely improve the marketing campaign.

Unlike most of our competitors, once a sale is agreed, we do not pass the file to a Sales Progressor who is unfamiliar with both the client and the property. Instead the same company director will remain responsible for the smooth running of the transaction from start to finish.

Often Payne & Co. is instructed by an Executor acting for the estate of a deceased friend or family member, to provide a valuation of a property, that is then used in obtaining a Grant of Probate. All enquiries of this nature will always be handled sensitively.

As times change and new methods of advertising are adopted, there remains one constant: Selling a property is a talking business and engaging with our buyers face to face is something we would never wish to lose. We believe our high street office is key to building relationships with our clients who can call in at any time. Our prominently positioned office in Oxted, the home of Payne & Co. for 80 years, continues to enjoy daily visits from old and new applicants as they register to become home buyers.

We look forward to meeting you.
