Howard Independent Estate Agents branch

203 Whiteladies Road Bristol BS8 2XT

Howard. His name is above the door for a reason - Howard Davis is the man at the centre of this independent Bristol agency. A member of both the National Associations of Estate and Letting Agents and the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors - he’s one of the longest serving and best-known property experts in the area. He’ll even proudly tell you that he’s now selling and letting properties for the children of his original clients.

Howard got started in the property and financial sector in the mid-eighties, successfully running several corporate operations, but always with his heart rooted in a service that is local, personal and independent. He believes that people do business with people and that trust and reputation are key. Not only has he sold, let and managed thousands of homes across the region in the last thirty years, he’s a long-standing media commentator on issues facing both property owners and the industry.

Howard is a recent name change for the business, something he’s been working towards for several years and is very proud of. With the same independent local team (people rarely leave) managing hundreds of local clients’ sales and lettings portfolios, he knows he can offer the gold standard, trusted and flexible service that people want and need from a local agency.

When he’s not at his desk, you might find Howard running a Bristol Half Marathon for charity or enjoying an eclectic gig somewhere in the city (don’t get him started on music). You may also spot him cycling the lanes of Stanton Drew and Chew Valley where he was born, playing a noisy game of tennis in Redland or enjoying a quiet night in a Bristol eaterie with mates and his family. Howard loves this city and the people who live here. If you see him make sure you say hello.

Howard Independent Estate Agents area guide

Being a fully independent Sales, Lettings and Property Management agent means that we are not constrained to a strict radius, suburb or area. We love Bristol, all of it.

Whether you’re looking to swap the fast paced City Centre hustle and bustle, for Bishopstons mile upon mile of relaxed cafe culture. If you’re looking to Redland for its fantastic school catchment areas, or Sneyd Park for its vast green spaces and beautiful gardens. We are your local property and area experts, and have vast knowledge of all things Bristol.

With our office situated in the heart of Clifton on the famous Whiteladies Road, naturally we gravitate towards Central and North West districts of the city. This includes Harbourside, City Centre, Clifton, Redland, Cotham, Stoke Bishop, Sneyd Park, Bishopston, St Andrews, Westbury Park, Henleaze, Abbotts Leigh, Leighwoods, Hotwells, Kingsdown, Cliftonwood…and beyond. Whatever your situation, property or location, we are on hand to help.

My dealings with Howard and his team has been nothing but positive. They rented my flat with ease and made sure everything ran smoothly. It was a team effort headed up by Chris who was excellent.

A superb local property agent in Clifton who I have had the pleasure in working with over the last few years.

I would highly recommend their services to any landlord or tenant.
