Naish Estate Agents is a long established, independent family business offering estate agency and property management services. We’ve been operating in York and the surrounding areas as an estate agency, under a few name changes, for over 70 years and have years of experience in the property field. We’ve been located in our current building, next to York Minster, since 1976.

We are a small family business and you will always have access to a director, the business owner, as well as the friendly team members that support them. In case you were wondering, we spell it “Naish”, but pronounce it “Nash”!

From viewing to completion: we’ve got it covered

We pride ourselves on pro-active sales progression and look to monitor the entire transaction from the viewing stage right through to legal completion. What does that mean for you?

  • A quicker process: whether buying or selling, our company liaises with both sets of solicitors. A recent client’s sale was completed in just 10 days!
  • Fewer hitches: We push things along and chase up problems before you’re even aware there is an issue.
Taking the stress out of moving

Moving house is one of the most stressful things you can do. But here at Naish, we will look after you. Because we’re a small, independent team, everyone in the office will be involved in the buying or selling of your property. That means you’ll always have someone knowledgeable to deal with, whenever you call. We focus on you individually, taking time to understand your requirements and work with you to achieve the result you’re looking for.

Where we work

Based in a central location in York and our market covers York and surrounding villages – a 15 mile radius in North Yorkshire.

Sam is our Head of Residential Property Management. He provides invaluable service and advice to both our tenants and landlords. If you are considering letting a property or would like to know more, Sam is your man!

After graduating from the University of Leicester, Sam returned to his home county where he likes to spend his free time playing guitar, listening to records, and watching old films. When he’s not got his feet up at home, he’ll likely be halfway up a mountain or hiking in the Lakes, but most probably you can find him at one of York’s many great pubs, of which there are 365!!
