Why move to Hertford?

Hertford is a historic yet vibrant market town, just 19 miles north of London in the east Hertfordshire countryside.  It is an attractive place to live, with a maze of medieval streets, the remains of a Norman castle, walks along the river Lea and plenty of green space.

With a population of around 30,000, Hertford is a world away from the frenetic pace of city life, yet London is easily reached by train, making it very popular with commuters.

There are many picturesque villages around Hertford, offering the perfect balance between access to the town and the welcome of a rural community.  Many have a rich history, having been recorded in the Domesday Book and offer a good choice of characterful property.

If you are looking for an estate agent in Hertford, please pop into our office on Maidenhead Street.  We are both a lettings agent and sales agent for the Hertford area, and will be happy to help you.

 

 

A short history

Hertford sits in a valley where the rivers Rib, Beane and Mimram meet the river Lea.  It was named after the ancient place where deer once crossed the river, and the town's emblem is a stag or hart.

Settlements existed here in Saxon times, but the town grew following the Norman Conquest, when a castle was built.  Hertford Castle was a Royal Palace for over 300 years and is where Queen Elizabeth I spent much of her childhood.  The castle stood until the 17th Century when it fell into disrepair.  Hertford Castle Gatehouse now stands on the original site and is a popular venue for weddings and events.

The Victorian era saw much building as transport links to London improved.  The McMullens brewery was founded in 1827 by Peter McMullen and has been brewing beer since then using water from the chalk aquifer 140ft below the town.

Intriguingly, there have been tales throughout history of a secret network of tunnels beneath Hertford, said to be in use by members of the Knights Templar.  Claims have been made that treasures of immense importance are hidden beneath the streets.  History records that a number of the Templars were imprisoned in Hertford Castle, as shown in the stained glass window in St Andrew’s Church, so perhaps there may be some truth in the stories told.

 

Property

Much of the town centre is a conservation area.  Throughout Hertford, there is a wide mix of properties, from modern town houses and pretty riverside terraced cottages, to middle range family houses and detached homes with extensive grounds.

Family houses are available in the Fordwich area, with more extensive properties along private roads in High Molewood and Great Molewood.  Bengeo to the north and the area around Folly Island are always in high demand.

If you are interested in putting your house on the market, our Sales Agents will be pleased to arrange a home valuation.  Those looking to purchase property in Hertford can discuss their needs with our local experts and arrange viewings at suitable properties.  Alternatively, if you are a Landlord considering letting your property, or you are looking to rent within the Hertford area, our Lettings Agents are on hand to support you.

Friendly, professional, helpful and good communication

I am currently looking to purchase a property in the Hertford area and have been dealing with Joe Sharman in the Hertford Branch. So far, I have found him to be very friendly, while at the same time maintaining a professional demeanour.

He has communicated well throughout our dealings, confirmed appointment times well in advance, been flexible by moving appointments slightly to suit me and always been waiting at the property to be viewed when I arrive.

He is patient and helpful, always offering to answer any questions and I would be happy to recommend anyone to deal with him.

I haven't yet purchased a property but I have every confidence in Joe and will be keeping in touch with him in the hope that we will secure the perfect property for me!

Response from Kings Group

Good Afternoon,

Outstanding as Estate Agents and Conveyancing Solicitors

We had to sell Mum & Dads house in Hertford and chose Kings Estate Agents and also used their Conveyancing service.
The team in Hertford was outstanding – from taking a stunning set of photos to guiding us through the process. They knew the market extremely well and the house sold just three hours after the photos were taken.
Harsal at Kings Conveyancing took over and worked in conjunction with the branch from then to completion. Like the team in Hertford the Conveyancing team were outstanding, they were supportive with the vast array of forms that have to be completed. They kept us up to date by phone, text and email and we were also able to follow the process through using Kings eWay online system. This was particularly useful as both executors of my parents’ estate could follow the process.
I would recommend Kings as both an estate agent and also for their legal expertise – their knowledge and overall support and care made them an excellent choice and I will use them again when the need arises.

They were helpful and supportive and often went out of their way to help us who are virtually computer novices and who have never bought or sold a house before. I cannot say it was entirely stress free but their calm and professional attitude certainly helped.

I received good experience buying from them and when I went to sell my property, they helped me sell it for the full asking price, within 5 days of placing it on the market. The whole process from valuing to getting people along to see the house was very good. Patrick was very good in helping me with the negotiations to reach the desired price.

I was dealing with Reece Mayes from the Hertford office who is a really genuine, pleasant, proactive and knowledgeable young man. He was an absolute pleasure to deal with and is a real asset to the company. Although we have decided to no longer look for a property in Hertford, I look forward to popping in to see him next time we’re in town. I’m sure that if we continued our property search there, he would have become a friend, such a delightful person.

Response from Kings Group

Hi there,So sorry for the delay in getting back to you.
Wow, what an amazing review. I'm sure Reece will be delighted to hear your feedback.
It would be great to hear from you so please feel free to pop in
We look forward to catching up

Brodie has been nothing but helpful from the start of our experience with Kings. We have had a fairly long process and most recently, Brodie has been amazing at chasing things up every single day for us (without us asking her to!), which is much appreciated when we seem to be getting limited updates elsewhere! She has been super kind and helpful and I am so thankful to her for it. Fab customer service :-)

First Time Buyers

Reece is lovely. Knowledgable on the houses we viewed. Got back to us if we had any questions or problems. Myself and my boyfriend are first time buyers and we didn’t know much about buying a property but we felt at ease with Reece. I would recommend Kings as an estate Agent when buying a property.
