What we are about


"Our aim is to bring back the personal touch to the lettings market and make it our business to get to know you and your property personally."


We are the only “Stand Alone” independent Lettings agent in Winchester. With so many estate agents, lettings is seen as the poor relation BUT here at
Purdie and Swan we focus ONLY on Lettings and we are proud and passionate of the service that we offer. We have clients who will be happy to support this should you require some further reassurance.

Our aim is to bring back the personal touch to the local Lettings market and we genuinely have both our Landlords and Tenants interests as our ultimate concern and the people you see below are the individuals you will actually deal with. We pride ourselves on our high levels of communication which is vital to ensure a smooth let from start to finish for both Tenant and Landlord.

A Purdie & Swan property is advertised on all the established, national property portals - Rightmove, Zoopla & Primelocation,
ensuring you the best exposure for your property to the largest marketplace possible as well as our own website and in our office window which is situated in a prominent location in the city centre.
