Our Story

After 10 years of working in the London Property market Andrew had a bit of a culture shock when he sold his agency and relocated to his wife Kathryn’s home town of Derby to raise their young family. The pace of Derby estate agency was very different and whilst there were positives too there just wasn’t the same energy and drive to deliver great results for client’s.

Nearly 2 years later in mid 2016 with their second son Archie on the brink of being born Andrew and Kathryn decided it was finally time to create an estate agency that could combine the best of the Derby market with the hunger and drive of the London market. And just like that AKS was born just a couple of months after Archie!

No-one had heard of us and we had a grand total of zero properties to sell but we slowly picked up our first few clients. We focussed 100% on delivering the best possible result and moving experience for every customer. The more we looked after people the more recommendations we received and our business started to grow.

In 2018 we over doubled the number of properties sold in 2017 and then increased this again in 2019 by another 50%. This has been achieved not by advertising or promoting ourselves but by keeping our focus on putting our customers needs first.

Our motivation isn’t to be the biggest estate agent but to continually improve and work hard to be the best. Whatever the future holds, whether we sell 20 properties or 200 our priority is to ensure that we achieve the very best price and moving experience for every one of the sellers that entrust us with the sale of their property.

Thanks for taking the time to read about us. We’d love you to get in contact so we can find out more about you!

Thank you AKS Residential for making the selling of our beautiful, family home so stress free. From start to finish you were a pleasure to deal with and so helpful. You’re advice was second to none and it seemed like the whole process was pretty seamless. They say that selling your home and moving is one of the most stressful things you will do but AKS seriously took that stress away. Andrew and Ben (and the rest of the office team) delivered a service that was far beyond expectation. I now look at other ‘for sale’ boards and wonder “why are you not using AKS Residential”. I can not recommend them highly enough. We had a quick deadline for the completion of our sale and purchase and they did everything in their power to make sure we achieved it and we were able to move onto our next chapter. Thank you guys. You are truly awesome and shine out in the property market. Good luck to all of you for your future success, you really deserve it.
