Competitive edge

Staves Estate Agents pride themselves on their local knowledge.


If you’re moving house, even moving to a new area, then local knowledge from your estate agent is hugely important. It’s something that Staves Estate Agents, a well established independently owned and family-run estate agency, pride themselves on. 



Staves opened on Bushey Wood Road in August last year serving the Dore and Totley postcodes (S17) as well as S7, S11 and surrounding areas. These suburbs are some of the most sought after areas in the city with great schools, amenities and frequent transport links to the centre – all major draws for potential buyers and something that has proved attractive to those not just in Sheffield but from further afield too.

Managing director of Staves Estate Agents, Matthew Staves, who has 24 years’ experience in the industry, grew up in the Dore and Totley area and now takes his children to the same schools he once attended.

“Strategically, this is a good location for us and complements our other branches,” Matthew said, who also operates branches in Woodseats, Gleadless and Dronfield. “This is a great place to live and there’s a huge demand for property here. We’ve had lots of enquiries from buyers looking to relocate from the south who, amongst other things, are drawn to the area’s close proximity to the Peak District.

“We pride ourselves on our local knowledge along with our hands-on pro-active approach towards selling and letting property, which we feel gives us a competitive edge over our competitors. Our passion and determination is matched only by our investment to leave no stone unturned with the extensive marketing and promotion of our properties.”

As part of their marketing strategy, Staves has recently introduced 360-degree walkthrough tours to their property listings allowing potential buyers to get a good feel for a property before organising a Covid-secure visit. They also use social media sites Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to extend their reach even further. 

“We’ve had good success since opening, with lots of interest and the majority of properties going for above asking price,” added Matt. “The demand is definitely there and this should only intensify in the coming months.”

Such is recent demand that Staves already has an extensive mailing list of buyers looking for properties in the S17 and S11 areas - if you’re in the market for a new property, it’s worth signing up to make sure you don’t miss out on any new properties that come available. Equally, if you’re looking to sell too, it’s great to know that Staves has buyers ready and waiting.

The Dore and Totley office, just off Abbeydale Road South and close to Tesco Express, is providing a full range of estate agency services in a Covid safe way. They are open six days a week and enjoy the benefit of three free parking spaces outside, which means dropping in has never been easier. Staves specialise in residential sales and lettings, as well as providing independent mortgage advice.
