Products & Services


If you are thinking of selling then your first step should be to get an accurate valuation of your property. At Bardens we carry out many valuations every week so we have the local knowledge of property prices in your area. We pride ourselves in offering a full estate agency service with many extras, at a fee that is significantly below the chain estate agents in Royal Tunbridge Wells. We charge an estate agency sales fee of just 0. 6% incl VAT (Sole Agency Basis) , which not only includes professional photography, detailed floorplans and an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) , but also includes a property video tour. Our approach will make your property stand out, helping you attract a buyer who is able to pay the best price for your home given your individual circumstances and the overall market environment. We also find that the video tours reduce the number of unnecessary viewings as buyers are much better informed about your home before they arrange to see it.


The team at Bardens Estates Royal Tunbridge Wells has many years of experience letting and managing property. This has given us a very different approach to lettings than our competitors. We understand that when tenants pay high admin/reference/check-in/deposit fees at the start of their tenancy, they are put under financial pressure which can lead to problems and even missed rent payments further down the line. We have therefore structured our business so that we are not only able to offer a great deal to our landlord clients, but we are also charge ZERO admin/renewal fees to our tenants.


At Bardens we understand that starting a new tenancy can be very expensive. Most Royal Tunbridge Wells letting agents make tenants pay an administration fee, a check in or check out fee (or both) , a fee for referencing and there are often other costs to pay too. At Bardens we have a completely different approach and have cut these up-front costs to ZERO so that our tenants can focus on paying the rent, the deposit and their moving costs.

Customer Testimonials

We have rented before through other agents but Bardens have outweighed them tenfold right from the get go. From the moment we got a call from Bardens we felt relaxed and comfortable, they made the entire process easier than we could ever had imagined. Our agent was kind and caring and had all the answers to our questions right there and then. The fact that there are no, I repeat NO Tenancy fees had worked out wonders for us as well, there is nothing worse than being told you have to pay various astronomical charges for pieces of paperwork you didn't even know existed.

All of the stresses and complications that may arise with new renting were entirely handled by our agent Steve who kept us more than informed at every stage of our experience right up to the day we moved in. He himself is also personally contactable at any moment to deal with all our queries and act as the perfect go between for us and our landlord. We are more than pleased with the service we have received from Bardens estates and Steve himself who went above and beyond the duty of care, (We would happily have him over for a cuppa and a chat anytime!).

We hope to continue our happy and healthy relationship with Bardens for the foreseeable future. Thank you!

Bardens is a trusted name in sales and lettings around Tunbridge Wells. For the accidental landlords, serial landlords or institutional landlords, Steve offers a high quality lettings service this is very good value for money. Aside from this, Bardens also offer a highly competitive service when it comes to selling properties.

I have involved Steve on a number of sales and lettings transactions so far and have no hesitation in recommending his quality of service.

I've just sold my 2 bed property in TW with Bardens and had such a great experience I feel the need to share! I worked with Steve and he has been very professional and nice to work with, keeping me updated and making the whole process run smoothly. They offer a really good price and very committed service. If I had another property to sell in the area I would definitely use them.
