Bear Estate Agents were born in 2014, and their name originated from the birthmark one of its directors. Our aim as estate agents has been and is to solely reduce the amount of money a vendor has to typically pay a high street estate agent when they sell their property.

We've seen house price rises of double digits over the past decade and in doing so Estate Agents have seen their percentage rake in more and more revenue without doing anything extra to sell a property. In fact selling a house has become easier and easier thanks to online portals such as Rightmove and Zoopla. Potential buyers are now able to select the criteria of their desired home that they are looking for without leaving the house and decide on a property in minutes. That leaves the traditional estate agent with less and less to actually do - so why should they receive more money for less work?

We have grown our business over the past two years, to become the #1 selling Estate Agents in the Southend on Sea postcode. Our aim is to become the #1 Estate Agents across Essex and beyond.

Our rate of 795 inc VAT and 1295 inc VAT after completion is extremely competitive when compared to traditional estate agents.

A big thank you to everyone at Bear, to Rob who was so personable and professional with property marketing at the beginning of my journey, the guys in the office that dealt with sales progression, though to Sydney, who chased all parties like a little terrier to get my sale and purchase through. We completed at such a difficult time due to COVID, but got there and I’m very happily settled in my new home. Even the removals guys came recommended by Rob and they were so great to deal with and very professional on the day. Thanks again team Bear, I’d recommend you happily to anyone.

Bear have been brilliant. A good valuation, excellent advice on pricing and sale advert (which was well photographed and put together). The team were friendly, professional, proactive and committed to getting a sale. I completed on 28th May and can't thank them enough. Sydney was great and maintained regular contact with me throughout sales progression - she kept in touch with all parties, and ensured progress was maintained. She also kept in touch with me throughout the Covid19 lockdown restrictions - and as soon as they were relaxed I was able to complete within a few days. A big thank you to the Bear team.

Sold our Flat with Bear a month ago- amazing experience from the moment I rang to book a Valuation and Frankie gave us so much advice- such a lovely guy, to when Kyle came to value it through to the day of completion. Kyle is a genuine, friendly and helpful guy who works so hard for his business. Sydney, Progress Chaser was wonderful- such an efficient, lovely girl- who was on top of everything for us. I’d have no hesitation in recommending Bear to anyone and will do so. We will use Bear in the future when we are looking for a new property or selling. Thank you Team Bear- you’re all amazing!

Customer Testimonials

Excellent friendly and professional service, our house sold within hours. We had the pleasure of dealing with Kyle throughout our house sale process and despite the number of delays from the solicitors side Kyle continuously chased the relevant parties and made the process a lot less stressful. I would definitely recommend. Thank you Kyle and the team at Bear we certainly could not have done it without you!


I've sold 2 flats through Bear now and cannot recommend them highly enough.
Kyle, Bear's Sales Director has in my opinion gone above and beyond in supporting me throughout the process when issues and difficulties due to buyers arose. One property accepted an offer within 24 hours of being on the market.
The photos taken were fabulous and I had regular viewings throughout.
You will not get a more competitive rate in the area and will get a top service. There is no other estate agents I would consider using from now on.


We have just sold our house with Bear Estate Agents who were brilliant throughout the whole process. Before going on the market officially our house details were posted on a 'Coming Soon' part of their website to generate interest. On the first weekend, Bear had organised for 5 lots of people to view our house, one of whom who did go on to make an offer. They kept us informed throughout, even chasing our solicitor at one point. Kyle and the team were always friendly and professional. The photos taken of our house were of good quality. Overall, they provide an excellent service for a very reasonable cost. Thank you to all at Bear!


I would just like to thank Kyle, Alfie and the rest of the team at Bear. Nothing was ever too much trouble. You dealt with my house sale in a very professional manner and never made me feel nervous throughout the whole sale process. You promised and you delivered. True excellence. I cannot sing your praises high enough. Thank you again


Bear have been brilliant. They put up with my unrealistic expectations and sold my house in under 6 weeks. All the staff are friendly, professional and helpful but special thanks to Sydney for putting up with me and for pushing the sale through. Would recommend whether you are selling or buying and I would definitely use them again.


I cannot recommend bear enough- second time using them and wouldn't use anyone else. Sydney has been absolutely amazing throughout the whole process- being the link for the whole chain- the one person who knows what's going on! She has made the whole process a lot more bearable! Thank you so much!


Would absolutely recommend Bear they were superb throughout a particularly troublesome sale and purchase. Great communication at all times and very professional. All the staff are extremely helpful but special mention to Sydney who worked tirelessly to push things through.


Extremely friendly and professional company. Always willing to take a phone call and provide updates on the sale. Would strongly recommend Bear.


Great experience with Bear from the first phone call to exchange. Wayne, Frank and Helen have been great and completely changed our minds about estate agents.

From the first phone call to the last congratulating us on exchange they have been a great help especially in dealing with some frustrating situations.

Bear have sold our property and sold us our new property. Would not hesitate to recommend Bear or go to them in the future if we find ourselves in the same position.


Sydney was brilliant keep me up to date at all stages of the process. She also kept everything simple so I understood what was going on. Thank you so much
