Closes at 6:00pm
66-68 St. Loyes Street, MK40 1EZ
Lane & Holmes, an estate agency established in 1985 by founding partners Andrew Willmer and Nick Kier, is probably Bedford’s leading estate agent dealing with the sale of quality homes in and around the Bedford area. 2002 saw the service offered by the original company enhanced with the formation of the Lane Group of companies networking the expertise of 12 offices in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire and Hertfordshire together with the Mayfair Office in central London firmly establishing the brand. Lane & Holmes were also founder members of Move with Us, a network of over 1,200 offices nationwide ensuring that Lane & Holmes offer the best local, county and national coverage. In 2007 Lane & Holmes launched Lane & Holmes Lettings the fastest growing lettings agency in Bedford serving North Bedfordshire and stretching across the A1 into Cambridgeshire in association with Whites Property Services to cover St Neots, Huntingdon and St Ives and the surrounding areas. Lane & Holmes have embraced the technological revolution and offer a fully computerised database linking all of our offices together, enabling property details to be distributed quickly and efficiently by email, text messaging and other more traditional methods. Lane & Holmes offer a free market appraisal for those intending to sell and we would invite you to contact us if you are considering a sale of your property.

5/5 Stars
Great Service. Made things easy in getting property on the market. The team were really friendly and a special thanks to Nik who 'hit it out of the park' in finding a perfect property for us. Even with the rather demanding list of expectations. Would definitely consider using them again in the future.... Read more

Lane and Holmes were wonderfully helpful and communicative from the point of instruction, arranging photographs and a brochure, conducting viewings, managing negotiations with each part of the chain and keeping the deal intact all the way to sale. Would highly recommend and will use again in future.... Read more

5/5 Stars
Lane and Holmes were extremely helpful in getting a very difficult chain through to exchange and completion. My daughter was at the bottom of the chain and wasn’t getting any help with the estate agent she was buying through so I advised her to talk to Lane and Holmes who were at the top of the chain. After 7 long months they got it through to exchange in little over a week. Thank you Ross and the team, for your help!!!... Read more

C Chapman

1/5 Stars
(Owner acted very quickly on this and was very apologetic and has assured us it was completely out of character. Would give 5 out of 5 for his attitude and would probably use again because of this) Viewed a property with Lane and Holmes and to be quite honest the agent dealing with it was a completely disinterested from the start. Made an offer on the property and was told in a very rude and condescending manner that it wasnt enough and we needed to carry on looking for another property. Far from professional Cathie ......

I wholly recommend Lanes & Holmes and am thoroughly impressed with the customer service that I have experienced. I feel fully supported and well advised through the emotionally-charged process of putting my house up for sale.

They actually did a lot of chasing and admin with regards to the solicitors and finalising details too, couldn't have done it without them. Glad i didn't!!!... Read more
