Kivell Country Property offers a bespoke service for clients selling country properties.  Every transaction is treated individually and your contact is always directly with an experienced member of the team.

Market Appraisal and marketing advice

We don’t just take instructions to sell your property but advise you on how to maximise its sale price before it goes on the market.  Sales can be arranged by private treaty, sealed tender or public auction.  Timing, presentation and targeting different markets are crucial ways to add value and will be explored as part of our valuation process.  We pride ourselves on identifying opportunities often missed by clients and other agents.

Sales Particulars

The sales particulars we produce will not only describe your property factually but will also help to sell it.  Whether producing a brochure or internet details we start by considering what will most appeal to the best target markets for your property.  Experienced photographers, designers, floor planners and mappers will produce marketing material that will generate the right enquiries.

National, regional and local advertising

We will agree an advertising programme with you based on our knowledge of the publications that work best for the potential buyers of your individual property.  We have considerable experience of advertising within all the key national, regional and local publications.  The key to successful advertising is getting the right message to the right buyer at the right time.  We can offer you extensive guidance to ensure that advertising resources are used effectively.

The Internet

Buyers are increasingly using the internet to do their initial search for property.  At D. R. Kivell Country Property we offer a worldwide internet presence via our own website, Zoopla.co.uk, primelocation.com and rightmove.co.uk. A high percentage of users register for further services, including emailed alerts about property which is fresh to the market.  With D. R. Kivell Country Property your property will receive genuine worldwide exposure.

London Office

We have a representative office in Park Lane, London as we are members of The Guild of Property Professionals.  This provides effective central London marketing backed up by a well located property showroom, internet website guildproperty.co.uk, a quality property magazine and a network of over 600 quality agents across the country.


Encouraging publications to feature your property as editorial can be a powerful way of generating enquiries for your property.  We have a comprehensive network of contacts with property editors and journalists nationally and locally.  We know how to match the content and style of articles to appeal to the interests of individual media, maximising publication opportunities.

Effective Client Feedback & Reporting

The sale of your property is as important to us as it is to you.  We understand that clients want regular, clear updates.  At D. R. Kivell Country Property we will keep you advised at every stage.  Most importantly, you will have direct access to the senior team member you have dealt with throughout the transaction.
