A note from Francis Long, director, Hanslips

“I have been in or around the world of property all my life. I worked as an estate agent in Notting Hill, Knightsbridge and Fulham from 1990-1997, indispensable experience for any buyer’s agent. Francis Long Homesearch was founded in 1998 and began its focus in London. In 2002 we expanded the operation to include the country. This now stretches from the beaches of Dorset across to the orchards of Kent and up to the rolling hills of the north Cotswolds.”

We only act for buyers. Some buyer’s agents also act for sellers (albeit operating under a different name), creating a clear conflict of interest – since any such agent would prefer you to buy a property they also happen to be selling. We are completely independent; there is no conflict of interest. We are free to pursue all avenues of enquiry in our clients’ interests.
