The Grantley Way
Whether you wish to discreetly market your property or are looking for maximum exposure, the success of your chosen approach requires one fundamental and carefully considered element – an estate agent that cares about what is best for you and your needs. This tailored approach has always been hard to find on the high street, until now!
"Someone asked me the other day, ‘What makes you different from all of the other agents and why should we use you?’ I love this question, for me it is an easy answer:
Everything we do, we believe in challenging the status quo. We believe in thinking differently. We believe that every home is as individual and unique as the owner, and as such, no property brochure or photography shoot is ever the same.
We believe that specific and individual marketing is paramount when showcasing your home. We tailor everything to focus on your needs as a client and how best to promote your home in the most effective and inspirational way that we can.
Each and every client deserves to be treated as an individual and we work to your pace and with your ambitions at the forefront of everything we do. Oh, and by the way - we love what we do."

Our Marketing Tools

Property videography is now proven to generate more enquiries than any other form of marketing - it is one of the most powerful tools for attracting people to your home.

We supply detailed floorplans, land plans and professionally individually designed brochures in digital and print format. These are unique to your home and never the same!
Harnessing the power of social media, we create bespoke advertising campaigns targeted at tailored audiences to give your property maximum exposure.
Individual property micro site, as well as use of property listing websites such as Rightmove, Prime Location, Zoopla and LonRes (a London based, agent only portal).
Home staging, project management, proven communication channels as well as a detailed marketing plan.
We offer discreet property buying and selling services, ensuring you have full control over the visibility of your property, and relying on our expert market knowledge and customer contacts so your property is bought or sold in a confidential manner.
The Marketing Team
David has been an agent since 1997, and throughout his 24-year career in property he has had the privilege of working for a number of industry-leading property agencies in Prime Central London, South West London, Surrey and Hampshire. Since joining Grantley in 2016, David has been instrumental in evolving the company's brand, introducing a more tailored approach to property marketing and overseeing the development of Grantley’s web and social media strategies. David is utterly client focussed and nothing is ever too much trouble - if a house needs staging for a photo shoot or a garden needs attention to capture that all-important shot, it is not uncommon for David to roll his sleeves up and get stuck in!
David prides himself on ensuring every client’s home is marketed in the best possible way. Through this diligent approach he enables owners from Country Estates to Ultra modern eco houses to achieve their goals. He prides himself on a passionate knowledge of listed buildings and the more quirky country houses that the area is known for. Living next to Merrow Downs, the perfect place for David’s love for the great outdoors, he is a keen mountaineer and can often be found trail running around the Surrey Hills in preparation for his next adventure. David is the very proud father of a very active 9 year old boy and a grown up daughter who is now training to be a teacher. He lives life to the full and hates sitting still for more than 5 minutes!
Head of Lettings
Born in Sydney, Mark made England his home back in 2003 and now enjoys the Surrey Hills and south/mid Wales, either mountain biking or walking with his young family. Having lived and worked in Guildford heading up a premium lettings business since 2006, he joined Grantley in 2015 and is passionate about working with the Lettings, Finding and Management Team to elevate the business to a new level. Mark has never completely gotten over the heartbreak of losing the 2003 Rugby World Cup on home turf to the English, a fact that he is regularly reminded of.
Shonda has worked in the Haslemere office since 1997 and has over 28 years letting experience in and around the area, having visited, shown, or valued just about every house in the town and surrounding villages. Shonda thrives on business development, investment landlord acquisition, property lettings and management and has a wealth of local knowledge and contacts, which proves invaluable in the business. Shonda has two boys which keeps her busy and enjoys running, cycling and paddle boarding.
Branch Manager - Godalming
Having successfully worked for several of the large ‘prime’ estate agents in the area, as many people who have been through the process of buying, selling, or trading in property know, the process lacks clarity, certainty, and trust. When clients are selling their largest asset, they need to trust the person who is handling the transaction on their behalf. When this is achieved, a sale and purchase can be far less stressful, more enjoyable and the exciting experience that it should be. The flexibility of working for Grantley, a highly regarded independent agent, allows Edward the time to understand his clients, build genuine relationships, and therefore tailor the process to their exact needs. When Edward isn’t in the office, he enjoys keeping fit and can be found running through the Surrey Hills or exploring the area with his young family. Living locally in Witley, Edward is passionate about the area and is part of the juniors coaching team at Guildford Rugby Club.
Sarah has been based in the Haslemere office for over 17 years, having previously worked in the travel industry. This time has enabled Sarah to build a wealth of property management experience, dealing with all aspects of new business and ongoing client relationships. Sarah has a passion for interior design and refurbishment and is often asked to coordinate refurbishment projects on her clients' behalf, and as a landlord herself, Sarah can empathise with the requirements of both landlords and tenants. When not at work Sarah is a keen golfer, enjoys entertaining with friends and family and of course a glass of chilled sauvignon!
Lisa joined Grantley in January 2021 following the merger with her own lettings business, LP Lettings, which she set up and ran for almost 9 years. Lisa started her lettings journey in Knightsbridge some 27 years ago and has amassed a huge number of clients and contacts throughout Surrey and prime central London. This varied experience in all aspects of letting and management, as well as the same customer-focussed approach as the rest of the team at Grantley, is proving invaluable to her clients. Living in Thursley, Lisa is often out on the common enjoying long walks with her dog and spending time with her family.
