Our Office

Putterills Estate Agents Hitchin specialise in houses for sale and property to rent within the Hitchin area of Hertfordshire including the small surrounding towns, villages and suburbs.

We have been serving the Hitchin area with professional estate agency and letting agency services for over 20 years and would very much look forward to working with you in order to successfully facilitate and complete the sale of your house, property or home and can even help you let your property.

The Area

The historic medieval market town of Hitchin, dating back over some 1000 years and originally built up around the River Hiz, is a truly charming place to live with a population of about 30,000. Hitchin has retained its market town feel and has many fine Tudor and Georgian buildings, particularly around the historic town centre, together with the beautiful St Mary's Church.

Famous for its traditional open market which is the largest in the Home Counties, open every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday. Hitchin has many high quality boutiques and independent shops including some larger chain stores. Its vibrant social scene accounts for the large numbers of pubs, cafés and some of the area’s finest restaurants; it also has two theatres - The Queen Mother Theatre and The Market Theatre - while cinemas and other attractions can be found in nearby towns.

During the summer, Hitchin is host to the Hitchin Festival including the Rhythms of the World concert which attracts over 20,000 visitors to our small town. Many of the acts at ROTW are from Hitchin or the surrounding towns which gives Hitchin a very active music scene. Further tourist attractions include Hitchin Museum and Hitchin British Schools Museum.

Hitchin is surrounded by many popular smaller towns and villages including: Ashwell, Baldock, Fairfield Park, Gosmore, Great Wymondley, Great Offley, Henlow, Ickleford, Letchworth, Little Wymondley, Lower Stondon, Pirton, Preston, St Ippolyts, Shefford, Shillington, Stotfold, Weston and Willian.

Thank you for all your help and assistance in selling my property. From the very start, we felt reassured and confident you would put our interests first and help us secure a buyer. Losing both parents within 11 months and then trying to deal with a house sale is quite a daunting time and only made better by the support of others, like yourself. You and your team were professional, reassuring and effective. Your advice was informative and the end result was a real help with closure for us. Once again, thank you. We would not hesitate to recommend Putterills.

Marilyn, Pete & Mike - Oct 2018

May I say, I have never met a more engaging, intelligence and genuine estate agent such as Nick Wellington before. I have sold and bought a lot of houses and Nick is really very special.
We had a lot of agents knocking down at our door when we first came to market and Nick was the only one who thought of dropping off a handwritten note through our letterbox. I was so impressed by this personal touch that I called him immediately. I really have a great deal of respect for him and I felt very safe in his hands. Nick is very knowledgeable and a class act. This is just what one wants when selling a home.
I think Nick is a real credit to Putterills and they are very lucky to have someone of that calibre in their organisation. Nick has also got a great bunch of people on his team and they all pull together and give the best impression and have a strong work ethic.

Lynette - June 2018

Excellent professional service. Putterills achieved a sale very quickly and helped progress things to a satisfactory conclusion, coping efficiently with problems arising elsewhere in the chain. Would highly recommend the Hitchin team.

Geoff S - Jan 2018

Helen from Hitchin has been fantastic and has had to deal with a lot! She was brilliant at keeping us informed. Just to say thank you so much for all your help with such a difficult end to our buying/selling process. Couldn't fault the service, it was better than expected. Thank you, it was very much appreciated.

Caroline Danby - Dec 17

Helen Badcock kept us up to date on all aspects of our sale from start to finish. Putterills in Hitchin could not do enough for you. If we were not sure about anything regarding our sale, they would investigate our query.

Denis & Celia - Oct 2017

We are so glad that we used Putterills to sell our house for us. We were very impressed with ALL the staff at Hitchin, notably Henry, Helen and Sharon. They have done a brilliant job all the way through, from start to finish. They always came back to me when I asked about something that needed an answer. We were given regular updates and feedback and we both feel that we couldn’t have asked for more. We found them to be very reassuring. Having worked in the estate agency business for over 21 years until 2011, I know all the potential pitfalls.

Val & Alan - Oct 2017

All the staff at Putterills in Hitchin helped dealing with stumbling blocks prior to exchange, particularly Helen. Henry was also very balanced in his advice which gave us confidence in the team.
The house was sold really quickly and they couldn't have been more helpful and efficient in helping to resolve queries and facilitate exchange.

J Willis - Sept 2017

Helen Badcock kept herself closely involved in what turned out to be a lengthy sales process. She was willing to chase other parties, cheerful and optimistic throughout.
Henry Canning was very professional and approachable, including in relations to a prospective purchase.

Rob Carter - Aug 2017

I was very impressed with the Hitchin branch, who I found very helpful and professional, particularly thanking Helen for her persistence.

Wendy B - June 2017

Putterills were the sellers’ agent for my recent house purchase. The service offered to me throughout the whole experience was exemplary, the management of this sale was just fantastic and every question/concern arising was dealt with professionalism and empathy. I have no hesitation in absolutely recommending this branch of Putterills with the greatest accolade, thank you so much for everything.
