Let us find your perfect Surrey home

Searching for your perfect home is time-consuming. It can feel like you're out of the loop, or one step behind other buyers. Let Surrey HomeSearch take that stress away.

As specialist property search and home buying agents, Surrey HomeSearch will use our local knowledge and property finding expertise to identify your perfect home. And once we've found it, Surrey HomeSearch will negotiate with the estate agent on your behalf, taking all of the stress out of the home-searching and relocation process.

Property Search Agent Catherine from Surrey HomeSearch

Catherine grew up in a family of Estate Agents but her own property career began with Property Development in London in 2009. Following a move to Surrey with her own young family in 2015, Catherine began to help clients wishing to move out of London to find their perfect property and later joined the Surrey HomeSearch team in 2019. With extensive knowledge of the local property market, Catherine prides herself on her fastidious research and connections within the market. Catherine will quickly understand your property requirements and preferences to help you find the perfect home and always brings a calm head to what could otherwise be a stressful situation.

When she's not touring the Surrey Villages for the perfect home for clients, Catherine enjoys getting out into the countryside with her family, running by the river and has recently dipped her toes into the world of Peloton! Having carried out several building projects over the years, Catherine is not shy of working hard for the perfect property and where others see a run-down barn, Catherine sees.... a project!

Property Search Agent Helen from Surrey HomeSearch

Helen Smith, Partner

Helen was born and raised in Surrey and really does know all of the hidden gems! Helen spent a few years living in South West London and this is where her property career began - 17 years ago - working in both Estate Agency and Property Development. Helen returned to Surrey with her family, which is where her career as a Search Agent began. Helen enjoys sharing her extensive knowledge of the area, and loves showing off all that Surrey has to offer! Helen thrives on working closely with clients, helping them along the way from the very beginning of their search to the point of exchange and loves getting to know each and every client and their individual requirements. Helen has a great deal of experience in negotiating and acquiring numerous properties of all sizes, and enjoys working to get the best deal possible for our clients.

In her free time, Helen enjoys socialising with friends, walking her dog in the beautiful countryside that Surrey has to offer, and visiting the gym (when she has the time!).

What we can offer your property search

Expert local knowledge

We have excellent knowledge of the Surrey property market and will easily identify the locations that are preferable to you. We have a vast wealth of local contacts in Surrey which gives us access to properties that are being discretely marketed or are not yet on-the-market.

Saving you time and effort

As your Home Buying Agent, we will carry out all initial property searches and a full locality audit on your behalf. Our aim is to present you with a shortlist of properties that tick all of your boxes, saving you hours of time and unnecessary viewings. As your dedicated Surrey home finder we can provide live video viewings if necessary so that you can explore the property as if you were there. Once we have a shortlist, we will liaise with the seller's agents and ensure a schedule of viewings that works for you.

Getting the best price

As buying agents, we work for you, the buyer. Not the vendor. Once we have found your perfect home, we will negotiate the best price for you. We are confident that we will be able to negotiate the price of your perfect home down - meaning our services will actually save you money.

Surrey HomeSearch: What People Say

When attempting to relocate from SW London to Surrey, after a year of fruitlessly searching, we considered using a buying agent. Having never used one before, after some research and phone calls with prospective agents, Surrey HomeSearch were the outstanding candidate in terms of fees and the rapport we had with them. Immediately, they set to work in finding us our dream house and sent us a list of potentials on the same day, followed by a week of previews on our behalf, providing video tours and expert opinion. In truth, we didn't know exactly what we were looking for, and after a local tour with Helen, we built a much clearer picture of the area and the house we wanted. Helen presented new properties, almost on a daily basis, many of which were off-market / pre-market on account of her excellent relationships with local vendors, developers and agents. In short, I cannot say enough positive words about our experience with SHS, from initial meeting, until after completion. If you are considering using a buying agent, these guys are EXCELLENT! Mr and Mrs B, moving from London

We came to Surrey HomeSearch with a ridiculous list of wishes, having been searching ourselves online for 6 months to no avail, and within a couple of weeks they had found us an absolutely perfect, pre-market property which ticked every single box. As we were living in the USA at the time, having the help of Catherine and Helen was invaluable; they made multiple visits to the property, took measurements and met with contractors for us, sent copious photos and videos, and offered some welcome hand-holding when needed. It was a tricky purchase with some serious renegotiations required mid-process, and Catherine was on hand throughout to offer advice and assistance, including over the Christmas period when we were tearing our hair out! She appears to have an endless supply of patience, and a happy combination of imagination and practicality such that almost any problem can be solved. I simply cannot recommend Surrey Homesearch highly enough and without their help I don’t believe we would be about to move into our fantastic new home. Thank you so very much for putting up with us and making our relocation dreams come true; you must come and visit the donkeys!. D and M, moving from New York

Thank you Helen! Your advice has always been spot on and the service you provided exemplary. Mr and Mrs T, moving from the UK

Catherine, Helen, it's been brilliant working with you both. Thank you so much for your efforts, we can’t wait to explore our new place. V and C, moving from Singapore

Catherine and Helen provided a superb service for us which was at all times professional, responsive, efficient and enjoyable. We appreciated their patience with us, their flexibility, the speed with which they identified the pluses and minuses of any particular property or area for our needs and their excellent communication skills. We always had the feeling that we were working with people that we could trust, rely upon and be influenced by. This made our very complicated property search seem much easier (to us at least!) We would thoroughly recommend Surrey HomeSearch. Their work is reasonably priced and of uniformly high quality. They are also very nice people to be with! The housing market can be a confusing and competitive place, especially if you are looking from afar. Catherine and Helen will help to solve your problem, as they have helped to solve ours. Mr and Mrs M, moving from Scotland

I would highly recommend Catherine at Surrey HomeSearch as a Property Search Agent. She liaised with agents on our behalf and probably understood our wish list and the type of property that we were looking for better than us! I only attended two viewings in person before Catherine found us the property of our dreams. Thank you. Mrs D, moving from within Surrey
