"The name Wilkins Vardy has been a recognised brand in Chesterfield since doors first opened in 1970, becoming one of the most trusted and well respected businesses in the region. Whilst growing up in Chesterfield, Wilkins Vardy was always the ‘go to’ agency for any of my friends and family. Little did I know that in years to come, I would be responsible for managing this fantastic business."

"Professionalism, consideration and knowledge have been at the forefront everything I have done in my working life, and these are values that have always been clear to see at Wilkins Vardy.

Whilst the industry of estate agency is moving at a quicker pace than ever before, with huge advances in technology and marketing, these core values are still at the very heart of everything we deliver on a day to day basis. Moving home can be the most stressful of times, but we excel in providing guidance and care when it is needed most. "

 

" Whilst the tools we have at our disposal get more and more sophisticated, we still operate on similar principles than those which were set in 1970, to give a personal and professional service at all times.

I am extremely proud of our heritage, and feel that our three branches offer unparalleled service in the local market. Our team of experienced and professional staff, featured below, are here to help you achieve your goals and fulfil your dreams.”
