The team takes great pride to ensure that the key professional markers for the company are upheld at all times with due diligence, best advice, market knowledge and keen attention to detail always at the forefront.  Tim and his team are experts in their field of land search, acquisition and disposal and every time we engage their services we are always confident that our stringent criteria will be met.  A further plus of working with Searls Land is the extraordinary sense of humour and fun they bring to what can sometimes be challenging projects. "

efficient and pro-active.  They have a straightforward, no nonsense approach, and
our regular contact with their team has repeatedly shown that they have an excellent
knowledge of their patch and their clients’ requirements. 


Andrew Wilson, Group Land Director, Martin Grant Homes

"I have known and worked with Tim for a considerable number of years now and I have always found Tim and the rest of the Searls team good to work with, professional, straight forward and know how to get things done. "


Daniel Webber, Land Director, CALA Homes

"I have worked with Tim and his team since the inception of Searls. They are very personable, reliable and operate with a high level of integrity.  Above all they are passionate about what they do.  Their skills go well beyond land identification - they play an integral role in very quickly identifying, understanding and marrying the very often different requirements of the buyer and seller – not always an easy accomplishment.  They have consistently had a positive role in ensuring successful acquisitions that I have been able to achieve together with them, in recent years. "


Andrew Webb, Land Director, Shanly Homes

"We have this year for the first time utilised the services of Searls Land and purchased our first site through them at Leatherhead Road Ashtead. Unlike some agents we have found them to be very professional and giving us chapter and verse with finite details on potential development sites that they think would fit our portfolio. Tim , Dan and Adam of Searls are very straight talking when dealing as a go between parties and act speedily & efficiently to try and procure a deal . Once heads of terms are agreed they also assist with any queries up to exchange to help get the deal finalised. They have forwarded to us several other potential leads and we would not hesitate to recommend Searls Land to land vendors or purchasers. "


Derek Avery, Managing Director, Arthur Wait Ltd

"This is the first time that The Leander Group have worked with Dan and his formidable team and, without using an old cliché, we very much look forward to working with them in the future. Searls Land takes a very professional approach which is a breath of fresh air in these modern times and the way that they handled the disposal of the property was, to say the very least, exemplary. Tim and Dan run an experienced team and they have huge knowledge of the market in which they operate. This is so helpful to us and will be in the future. "


Anthony Braddon, Director, The Leander Group

"I have worked with Searls Land over many years and they have been instrumental in securing a number of land deals for Sunley.  Tim and his team have a wealth of contacts and experience, together with an excellent knowledge and understanding of the market at any particular point in time.  Tim’s good humour is also invaluable and I would highly recommend instructing Searls to assist with any land and planning issues. "


Richard Evans, Land & Planning Director, Sunley Group

"We have developed a close working relationship with the Searls team since their launch in 2010, and this relationship has become an important part of our business. Whether helping us to acquire an opportunity, or assisting with an existing project, we are always certain to receive a truly specialist, knowledgeable and trustworthy service, always with optimism and good humour. "


Ben Boyce, Managing Director, Ashill Group

"Highly recommended, Searls Land acted for us in relation to the sale of Leatherhead Social Club for redevelopment. From beginning to end of a sometimes problematic marketing and sale process we found Tim and Dan to be professional, diligent, polite and flexible. As trustees of the club, we have no hesitation in recommending their services. "

Mr Colin Shopland and Mr Frank Wilde, Trustees of Leatherhead Social Club, Leatherhead, Surrey

"As a developer we have been working with Searls Land for the past four years. We have found them to be proactive and responsive to the ever-changing needs of both the developer and vendors, they have assembled a good team of professionals both from within the organisation and externally, to provide the necessary highly skilled technical resources that are essential in the business. I have no hesitation in recommending them to any developer or land owner alike. "
