All About People

Our main focus is people and most importantly listening to them in order to form a clear understanding of their needs, which we recognise may evolve and change as their search progresses.

We work at a level of engagement that is appropriate to your needs. If you are ‘just browsing’ or doing market research on the area, then you may initially prefer to just receive email alerts and monthly newsletters. However, if the search is more urgent or your requirement is more specific, then it is imperative that you become a member of our Coastal and Country Club in order to be contacted about ‘off market’ properties and receive priority alerts about new instructions before they reach the broader market.

Viewings are usually carried out by representatives of Phillips and Stubbs who have an informed knowledge of the property and its location.

Local Team

All of our sales and letting team live locally and have a wealth of knowledge about Rye and the surrounding coastal and country areas. Many of our customers are looking for a lifestyle change, often to either live by the sea or in a quiet village away. To get a flavour of what is on offer in and around Rye visit our local area section where you can explore further. Meet the team


As a member of the Coastal and Country Club you will automatically receive buyer alerts with priority VIP invitations to see SOME OF the houses before they appear on the main property portals such as Rightmove and On the Market. In doing so we give you the fast track opportunity to potentially secure a house that matches your criteria before the broader market is even aware it is available for sale. If we do not have anything that matches your criteria we will find you one through our Home Finder service. Become a member

Home Finder Service

We appreciate that a high proportion of our buyers are London based or indeed, come from further afield. Whilst having a clear idea about what they wish to achieve from a property purchase, often buyers may only have a vague knowledge of the local market and a general awareness of the area. Whether you are looking for a home in a specific school catchment area or a property fronting a beach, we will try and find the right house for you, even if it is not on the market yet. More

Phillips and Stubbs are members of The National Association of Estate Agents, The Association of Residential Letting Agents and The Property Ombudsmen Scheme and follow strict Codes of Practice approved by the Trading Standards Institute, thereby demonstrating our commitment to high customer service and consumer protection.
