Welcome to
1st Call

Based in the centre of Southend for over 15 years 1st Call are one of the most established Estate and Letting agents in the town.

With over 100 years of joint experience our managers and directors have been at the forefront of local property and have seen every type of housing market since 1989.

Our job is simple, provide a great service and support you through a really important process.

We know how stressful moving home can be and by cutting through the old fashioned estate agent attitude and replacing it with something that everyone can relate to we are able to connect with buyers, sellers, landlords and tenants everyday and develop meaningful relationships so the process of buying or letting a home is simplified.

It’s not always straightforward but we are driven by our constant stream of 5 star reviews from satisfied customers and long term clients. We have many managed and let only landlords who have been with us since 2007 and these have been the cornerstone of our business.

We are proud winners of multiple awards from ESTAS Essex & Kent Landlord Agent of the Year, to Southend’s Best New Business.
