Places of interest

We offer a full range of services across our three branches (strategically located in Bitterne, Woolston and Shirley) covering sales and lettings, land and new homes, mortgage and financial advice as well as surveys and professional valuations. The Field Palmer approach is very hands on because we understand that our customers want to see results and to be kept informed of any developments. This activity and responsiveness is one of the many advantages of working with a smaller, dedicated, local agency team. At the same time we have all of the affiliations you would expect to see in a larger organisation, including being members of the Ombudsman, the NAEA, RICS and the Tenancy Deposit Scheme.

    Broadband availability and predicted speed: obtained from Ofcom on January 5, 2022

    Broadband speed is measured in megabits per second, with the number returned showing how fast the connection is. Each reading is based on the highest predicted speed of any major broadband network for services that deliver the download speeds. The following are the different readings that we may display:

    Basic: Up to 30 Mbit/s
    Super-fast: Between 30 Mbit/s and 300 Mbit/s
    Ultra-fast: Over 300 Mbit/s

    The data is updated three times a year. The checker results are predictions and should not be regarded as guaranteed. For more information, see:

    Mobile phone signal availability and predicted strength: obtained from Ofcom on January 5, 2022

    Mobile signal predictions are provided by the four UK mobile network operators: EE, O2, Three and Vodafone. Predictions can vary significantly from the coverage you may actually experience as a result of local factors (especially terrain). Ofcom has tested the actual coverage provided in various locations around the UK to help ensure that these predictions are reasonable. The values shown against a property can be broken down as follows:

    Clear: No bars, no signal predicted
    Red: One bar, reliable signal unlikely
    Amber: Two bars, may experience problems with connectivity
    Green: Three bars, likely to have good coverage and receive a data rate to support basic web services
    Enhanced: Full bars, likely to have good coverage indoors and to receive an enhanced data rate to support multimedia services
