A strong ethos

At Philip Bannister, the customer really does come first.

We’re committed to doing business in the right way – looking after everyone that comes through our doors, treating them honestly and with respect, and providing a service that we would want to use ourselves.

A rich history

Property is in the DNA of the Bannister family – we’ve been helping local people to buy, sell and rent homes in East Yorkshire since the 1960s.

The current agency has been running since 1998, when Philip and Mo Bannister set out to build on the family legacy with the launch of an independent estate agency. From humble beginnings, the agency grew quickly, opening new offices in 1999 and 2003.

Today, the business combines unrivalled expertise with the latest technology, operating two networked offices and a dedicated online portal to support it’s ever growing customer-base.

We work hard to maintain the highest levels of customer service – and we’ve been recognised by The British Property Awards as The Best Local Agent in both 2017 and 2018.

The British Property Awards is a leading, independently judged awards that assesses every estate agent in a local area against a set of 25 criteria. It’s completely free to enter and wholly impartial – making it the most trusted acclaim in the industry.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Bannisters especially Sue and Jennie for their tireless efforts in selling my property above. The sale had its unforeseen difficulties but during this whole unfortunate process Sue & Jennie acted professionally working very hard to achieve a satisfactory conclusion. Excellent service and would recommend them time and time again.
