About Us


Established in 1977 by our Senior Partner, Brian Start, we are an independent family run firm of estate agents dealing in the sale and rental of residential and commercial property in and around the Newquay area. We also deal with Property Management, New Homes Development and Auctioneering.

Situated in central Newquay and run by four members of the Start family with a wealth of local experience, we pride ourselves on our `no nonsense` approach to property transactions and aim to sell or rent your home with the minimum of fuss at the maximum price and for a reasonable fee.

Our offices can be found at 25 Cliff Road, Newquay (opposite Newquay Railway Station) and we are open between the hours of 9am and 5.30pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 1pm on Saturdays. Our team are always on hand to deal with your property enquiry and viewings or private appointments can easily be arranged out of hours, if required.
