Choose philip martin
Imagine an agent who is incentivised to achieve the highest possible price for you. An agent who doesn’t ask for upfront fees or charge for 'extras' such as accompanied viewings or photography. With Philip Martin there is no fee to pay until after the sale has safely gone to exchange of contracts. We’ve been helping our clients with all of their property needs for over 30 years so we know what it takes to sell property. Buying or selling a property can be one of the most important transactions most of us will ever undertake and that’s why it makes sense to ensure you have the best possible people at your service.
Philip started the business in 1986 with just a handful of properties on his books and has since handled thousands of property transactions across the county for many people. Now with three offices, four partners and twelve members of staff Philip Martin is an established name in the property industry throughout Cornwall and we are determined to continue our success in selling and letting property whilst providing a professional service to all of our clients and customers.

As an independent Cornish firm we recognise the importance of customer care to potential buyers and to our vendors. The main ethos of the firm is to provide a professional and high quality service to our clients.
The world's largest relocation company (Cartus plc) have selected Philip Martin as the "best local independent agent" in Truro and St Mawes and engaged us as their local representative of the Relocation Agent Network. Each member has been carefully selected by the network as owner run, dedicated to customer service and as having expert knowledge of the local housing market. This nationwide network of agents each receive pre-qualified relocating buyers from all around the country, often with cash or employer backing, looking to move swiftly.
Our Truro office is situated in the City centre in a prominent position opposite the Cathedral itself and enjoys a high level of pedestrian traffic. Our St. Mawes office is overlooking the sea in one of the busiest parts of the village.
We aim to advertise all clients' properties prominently in the local and regional press and currently utilise The West Briton, The Cornwall Property Paper and Western Morning News. We utilise titles such as Cornwall Life, The Times, The Telegraph, Country Life, Cornwall Living and Farmers Weekly. We advertise on Rightmove, OnTheMarket.com and we are also present in the world of social media including Facebook and Twitter.
We also have an extensive mailing list and individual properties are sent to prospective purchasers on a daily basis. We give great weight to the importance of high quality sales particulars often incorporating floor plans and ordnance survey extracts.
Once a buyer has been found and a sale has been agreed we then work between all parties inlcuding the buyer and seller, both solicitors, mortgage companies and surveyors in order to keep the sale together and help move it safely to exchange of contracts and completion. This is a vital aspect of the process which is often over looked by sellers when instructing an estate agent.
The firm has four partners headed up by Senior Partner Philip Martin together with Steven Jenkin, James Harvey and Sean Johnston. All four partners come from Cornish families and three share a similar agricultural background. Philip Martin and Steven Jenkin are both members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.
"I would very much like to thank Philip Martin Estate Agents for recently selling our home near Redruth but in particular, Lauren Symons for her hard work and tenacity in her role as agent. for myself and my husband, Philip. We truly appreciated her professional attitude which was maintained at all times, together with an accessible demeanour which, when dealing with buyers and sellers who may be under a great deal of stress, is not always achievable. Philip and I truly appreciated Lauren's approachable and professional behaviour throughout the process of selling our house. Thank you."
