New Forest Search
"We decided to use a property search agent for a number of reasons , primarily we live in Scotland and wanted to purchase in the New Forest . We needed someone who new the area and would view properties on our behalf , we needed all viewings to be to houses that fulfilled our criteria. Alice immediately understood what we were looking for and all the houses she showed us were suitable . She has an amazing knowledge of the area and was completely honest about areas and houses . She found us a fantastic house, negotiated on our behalf and liaised with the conveyancing solicitor , making a complex purchase stress free for us. Alice made the whole process very smooth and kept us fully updated . She also has a wealth of knowledge of the area and will help you find anyone or anything you need ! Alice offers so much more than just finding you the perfect home."

"Catherine could not have been more helpful at every stage of the process of our move out of London, from narrowing down the area of the search with her expert knowledge of villages, commuting and the inside scoop on schools, to setting us up with all the best possible contacts in terms of solicitors, surveyors and local builders. Having someone not just to help us to find a property in the first place but also to bounce ideas off and, most importantly, manage the buying process behind the scenes, has made what could have been a very stressful process so much easier, allowing us to concentrate on the exciting parts. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Hutton Bubear – and indeed have done so many times already!"
“Thank you Hutton Bubear. You helped in advising on our London sale, pointing us in the right direction for the best mortgage advice and, most importantly, secured us a wonderful home in the country. Visiting places on our behalf and giving great advice at the critical moments. Alice and the team were fantastic - a great all-round service throughout"

“As experienced property investors we originally didn’t think the service of a buying agent would be something we really needed, however, having known Mark for several years we trusted that he and his business partner Charlie would open doors where others would struggle. They understood our brief and uncovered “off-market” opportunities, assessing all the pros and cons, that they would present in a swift and professional manner. We are not only delighted with what we have bought but also feel the service, and calm manner in which all areas of the process were dealt with, reflects the experience, far reaching network and diligence that Mark and the Hutton Bubear team offer. We look forward to working with Hutton Bubear again and can’t recommend them highly enough”

"Alice and Catherine made our house-buying journey a much less stressful process from start to finish: from our first meeting with maps strewn all over the floor to their opening the door of our new house in celebratory fashion! We were both novices when it came to buying our house, and Alice and Catherine helped us throughout, finding us the house in the first place, and then guiding us through the process, with helpful tips and advice, useful contacts, and calming us down at the appropriate moments! Would thoroughly recommend Hutton Bubear"
"Without Charles’s civility, tact, efficiency, and determination I am absolutely convinced our transaction would not have gone through. He could not have handled the plethora of challenges better. The fact that he seems to have an encyclopaedic knowledge of every property in Prime Central London provided huge confidence"
"We had been looking (unsuccessfully) for a very specific type of house, in a very specific and small area of Hampshire for a long time. Suddenly the clock was ticking and we HAD to find somewhere. We decided to use a Buying Agent and chose Hutton Bubear. We doubted whether they could find our dream home, in the dream location in under 8 weeks but we thought we would give them a go. They absolutely succeeded! They clearly understood our brief and found us a property off market that ticked ALL the boxes on our list meaning we did not have to compromise on anything, and we were able to complete in the time frame we needed to. They also handled so many aspects of the purchase which was a huge help when trying to move house and look after two young children at the same time in a matter of weeks. We can’t thank them enough, and have already recommended these two professional and helpful ladies to a friend in a similar predicament to us"

"My dear Catherine seeing your smiling face this morning , and so knowing the house was at last ours was wonderful. It was a hard road but so worthwhile as I know I am going to enjoy living there surrounded by so many friends. I can’t thank you enough for all your hard work and the difficulties surmounted and my goodness there were enough of those! So thank you so very much and another thank you for the champagne which I feel you ought to come and share!"
"People say that buying a house is the most stressful event in life - coupling that with living several thousand miles away and buying in an area I did not know, meant I put if off for a number of years. That was until I heard about Alice and Catherine of Hutton Bubear. The girls spent days researching suitable areas in London, hand selecting properties for me to see and scheduling viewings around when I would be back in the country. I had expected to have to fly back several times over multiple months but all it took was two days before I found 'the one'. Alice and Catherine arranged for me to meet with mortgage brokers and lawyers. During one property visit they even organised for a local builder to accompany us. Due to their prior experience of working in property in London they were quick to spot the down sides and /or the highlights of the property - from both a rental and buying perspective - meaning I was able to buy a property that would be easy to rent in the short term but also a home in the long run.
I highly recommend Hutton Bubear - what I thought would be a stressful process turned out to be extremely easy and, dare I say it, fun! I am looking forward to taking the next step on the property ladder in the safe hands of Hutton Bubear"

"We couldn’t write more highly about Hutton Bubear! From the moment we first met Hutton Bubear they took over and when they say they’ll take care of everything....they really do. What’s more they’re a reassuring presence through, what is often, a stressful process. Likeable, knowledgeable, patient, tolerant, astute they’re the real deal and when our transaction closed, we gladly paid them every penny of their fee. What ever you pay using them you will get back and more in the long run"
"Mark did an amazing job finding me my house in Notting Hill, showing patience from the outset to ensure we uncovered the perfect home. From sourcing off-market opportunities to comprehensive market intelligence throughout, I was in extremely safe hands from the start, and wouldn’t have found this house without his access to opportunities others just don’t have. I am over the moon with the service, which continues long after completion, and of course the result. Thank you!"
