Durbins Estate Agents are an independently owned and run Estate Agents with over 45 years experience of selling properties in South-East Wales. Established in 1975, we’ve helped thousands of people find their ideal home.
Our team is comprised of local people who know and love the areas in which we work, providing not just industry knowledge and expertise but also that personal touch that can help you find a home that's right for you and your family.
We're trained and skilled in valuing homes, which surprisingly isn't always a given in the industry today. That means we won't just tell you what you want to hear to get you signing on that dotted line - we'll tell you honestly and reliably what your property is worth, so that you can move forward knowing that you'll get the right price at the right time, with a swift and simple experience.
We offer both buyers and sellers a highly professional service based on traditional values and local knowledge, coupled with modern marketing techniques (more on those on our Sell page). We never forget that our clients are our priority; we listen to you and keep you informed throughout every step of your move.
If you'd like to pop in and see us, we're prominently situated on the main road in Tonteg. We're a small but mighty team that offer extensive experience and vast local knowledge, and we'd love to chat about how we can help you with your property. Give us a call on 01443 204 240.

A massive thank you to Karen and Matthew for helping me with buying my house. As an estate agent myself I have to say the service I received was of the highest level I’ve ever experienced. Would highly recommend for anyone looking to buy or sell a property.John O
Karen and Matthew were phenomenal with our house sale & purchase. They were efficient, incredibly quick at responding to queries and delivered on everything they said to us. I couldn't recommend them enough, in a time of incredible uncertainty they were a shining light of reassurance at all hours of the day! Thank you both for helping with such a stressful few weeks! Hoping we don't ever have to move again but should that be the case we know exactly who will be dealing with our property.Josh T
Absolutely fantastic and friendly service throughout our search for a new home, definitely the best local agent around.Dennis M
Needed to sell our house quickly to get the house we've always wanted. Phoned Karen in the morning and it was sold in the evening for full asking price. I've used Karen and Matthew several times for both sale and purchase and wouldn't use anybody else.Kevin R
I really don't know where to start.. they have been outstanding. Nothing have been too much trouble for Karen & Matthew. Kept us up to date with everything. These are really the best around. We really can't thank them enough. If you're looking to buy or sell Karen & Matthew are the ones to go to. We will be back.Chris G
Matthew and Karen at Durbins were fantastic throughout the process of purchasing through them. Despite us buying through them, and not selling, their work rate, dedication and communication was excellent. Without their hard work we may well not have completed by the date that all parties had agreed to. I would without a doubt recommend them to anyone thinking of marketing a property, as the dedication they give to the process overall is second to none.Craig L
