Welcome to Higson Homes - Estate & Letting Agents in Hull

Higson Homes are a team of qualified professionals, with a decade of experience in the property industry. Using our extensive network and innovative marketing technologies, we are able to bring sellers and landlords together with buyers and tenants respectively.

We cover up-market housing in sought-after residential areas suitable for professional individuals, couples, group sharing and families alike. We recognise that the estate agency has become woefully outdated; inefficient use of the internet and other marketing technologies, coupled with poor levels of service has left the Industry unable to provide the high standards that people expect and demand today.

Our name and reputation is only as good as our people - and we never forget this. It is our ability to listen to people's needs that enables us to provide the right answers. By building a relationship with each and every customer, we develop a clear understanding of their requirements and maintain a position of trust, essential when entering into a sale.
