Hunters Estate Agents and Letting Agents Consett, County Durham is part of one of the UK’s fastest growing independent estate agency groups. Once at the very heart of the British steel industry, the town has undergone an intense programme of regeneration and today is a popular residential area for professionals commuting to Newcastle upon Tyne, Durham and Hexham, as well as families looking to settle in the nearby picturesque villages of the Derwent Valley.

Graeme Dimmick, Franchisee of Hunters Estate Agents and Letting Agents Consett, founded The Better Home Company in 2007, a thriving lettings agency which managed a portfolio of over 300 properties in the local area. In taking the opportunity to join the Hunters network, Graeme and his team will now offer a full sales and lettings service with the same enthusiasm and service levels, and combine existing skills and local knowledge with the Hunters brand.

“I have always eagerly followed the expansion of the Hunters network, and now seemed like the right time to join as a franchisee, as we look to expand our services to include sales. It is an exciting time for the Consett property market, as residential developers continue to regenerate steelworks sites, and with the support that Hunters are able to provide in key areas of marketing, technology, training and communication, we hope to see our well-established team become market leaders in the local vicinity. I am keen to expand our team, property portfolio and reach in the coming years by opening another office in Durham.”

Hunters Estate Agents and Letting Agents Consett are able to offer a late-night service on a Thursday for sellers and purchasers that may not be able to fit in appointment in during the day, but due to demand spaces book up quickly!

Local area guide

Situated in the North East of County Durham, Consett is perched beautifully on the edge of the Pennines. Consett has a strong industrial background, having supplied steel for both Blackpool Tower and Britain’s most famous nuclear submarines. 

The beautiful countryside close by is fantastic for weekend walks, and the Derwent Reservoir is a lovely place to visit. There is also the Beamish Museum, which is very popular and not far away at all, and just a 20 minute drive away you will find the historic city of Durham and it’s stunning cathedral. 

The area is currently undergoing regeneration, with a new retail park being built and stores such as Starbucks, Tiger Bills, Tesco, Brantano, B&Q and Pets at Home having recently opened their doors. 

Consett has a flea market on a Thursday and a general market every Friday and Saturday, so there is lots of things to see and do, and some great food options around. There is also a local music and beer festival every May that is great fun and very popular. 

There are some great places to live in Consett, including the city centre, Medomsley, Shotley Bridge, Blackill and Leadgate, so get in touch now if you are considering a move to the area.
