About Homes Estate Agents Grayshott
The Homes Estate Agents Grayshott office is the latest addition to our branch network and, since it opened in March 2017, it’s gone from a standing start to being the local agent of choice. Before we moved in, it was a neglected and empty Victorian ex-pharmacy building and after a 12 week extensive make-over project, it’s now fully restored and looking resplendent in the heart of the village. In addition to property sales in the Grayshott area, this office also looks after the residential sales for our Liphook branch, which now solely acts as Homes’ Regional Lettings hub. Spearheading the team in Grayshott is Regional Manager, Ben Moore who has over 16 year’s estate agency experience, 8 of which have been with Homes Estate Agents. Driven by a desire to provide the very best customer expereince the whole team is focussed on making Homes Grayshott & Liphook the ‘go to’ agent for the area.
Ben is supported in the office by Sales Manager, Tom Cann and Senior Client Advisor, Sally Sanders (our longest serving Homes team member), plus Client Advisor, Leo Sergiou. Our team is also supported, on a part-time basis, by Niki Fisher and Jenni Seeliger, both local ladies. Also on hand in Grayshott are Ellie Kavanagh and Hannah Ross, our dedicated Sales Progressors, whose role is critical in keeping on top of all sales transactions to ensure they progress, as smoothly as possible, through to completion.
Grayshott is a fabulously well-kept secret, tucked just off the A3, with so many very special places to visit within walking distance, which makes it a very desirable place to call home.
So call into our ‘home’ and meet the team here – you won’t be disappointed!

Having grown up in one of the oldest wine regions of South Africa, Jenni pursued her interest in winemaking at university and gained experience in the wine trade in London. Following the arrival of her first child she took a break to raise her family and moved to the English countryside. She now lives in Liphook with her husband and young family, enjoying the great outdoors and travelling. Jenni joined the Homes team at the beginning of 2019 and conducts viewings across the Grayshott and Liphook area, as well as generally assisting customers’ needs within the offices.
Ellie joined the team in 2019, working within the Grayshott and Liphook areas. With over 10 years previous estate agency experience, representing some well-known firms in and around the local area, she’s formally qualified in residential agency sales and thrives in a busy environment where a first class customer experience is expected. Ellie has moved from a pure sales role to a new position in our Sales Progression team, working with sellers and buyers to keep the whole sales process as stress free and smooth as possible. Having already moved house many times locally, Ellie is definitely able to provide sound advice to buyers and sellers from a personal as well as professional experience!
Hannah joined the Sales progression team in 2018 from a ‘front-line’ role in the busy NHS, where the fast-paced environment provided her with great communications skills and an organised and calm approach. Her role here at Homes is to be the initial contact with clients and solicitors – where selling or buying, thus ensuring a smooth start to any sale or purchase. She is proving to be a great asset to the team!
Small in size maybe, but Grayshott is big in character and soul! The area is one of the most relaxing places to live, surrounded by National Trust sites of outstanding natural beauty including Waggoners Wells, Ludshott Common, The Devil’s Punchbowl, Gibbet Hill and the Hindhead Commons with amazing views over the Surrey Hills. Several of these areas have been designated as Sites of Special Scientific Interest or Special Protection Areas.
The village boasts a wide variety of shops, restaurants, a great local pub – the “Fox and Pelican“, the local farm shop and restaurant at “Applegarth” is a must for regular visits and the world famous “Grayshott Pottery” is perfect for stunning ceramics and a great day out. Amazingly, all of these attractions are within easy walking distance of each other!
Turning briefly to its history, the earliest reference to Grayshott is in Winchester Bishopric records as Gravesetta (1185) and Graveschete (1200). In 1533 it was called Graveshotte, and the named changed to its current spelling probably in the 18th century. The shott suffix in local names refers to springs flowing from the sandstone rock strata.
As a measure of its popularity, beauty and general amenities, Grayshott has won numerous awards over the years. Since the Millennium alone, it has been crowned Hampshire Village of the Year three times, Best Village for Business in the Community in Southern England twice and the Champion of Champions of Hampshire Communities. You would not be wrong in saying that it certainly punches above its weight!
