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 on occasions 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 try to find you one through our Home Finder Service.
If you are thinking of selling a house in our area, we recommend that you join the Coastal and Country Club.
You will get privileged access to monthly market activities, showing the pulse of the market by way of comparable
properties that have sold, the current level of activity we are experiencing and the type of current demand.
When the time comes for you to sell, you will be better placed to take the right decision, to ensure you
receive the best possible outcome. You will also be given a dedicated vendor liaison agent to ensure regular
For Home Owners
If you have no immediate plans to move but live locally, there are benefits to being a member: As well as
being your home your property may be your most important asset and as such in receiving the regular reports
which keep you in touch with the local market, we offer an ongoing annual valuation service to ensure you
know exactly where you stand at any one time in a constantly changing scenario. For all our members we also
offer a key retention service for ease of access, for example, for tradesmen of your choice to visit in your
absence. As well as this we offer a postal delivery facility whereby small packages can be delivered to our
Rye office for collection by you at a later time or date.
Home Finder Service
We recognise that a high proportion of our buyers are London based or indeed, come from further afield. Whilst
usually having a clear idea about what they wish to achieve from the property investment it is often the
case that many people only have a superficial knowledge of the local market and a very general awareness
of the area. We work hard to understand what our buyers want to achieve from their property investment, whatever
their walk of life. Accordingly, whether you are looking, for example, for a home in a specific school catchment
area, a beach front property, a house in Rye Citadel or something very individual, we will try to find the
right house for you, even if it’s not on the open market yet.
Phillips and Stubbs was formed in 1992. Our archive files exist and stretch right back to that time and over the
ensuing years through the sheer volume of sales and valuations we have acquired invaluable, unrivalled local
market intelligence and made connections right across the communities on a business and personal level. As
a result, by way of our bespoke Home Finder Service, available free of charge to Coastal & Country Club Members
only, we are able to go deep in the search for individual properties that we know might suit a specific buyer’s
requirements in terms of location, budget, architectural style and so on. A particular owner may, of course,
not wish to sell at that moment but sometimes they will and it is through creating these opportunities that
many ‘off market’ sales are achieved.
