Our Services and Fees
Birkmyre Property Consultants are a specialist, independent estate agency handling the sale, rental and management of all types and styles of property from studio flats to large country houses and commercial properties across Berkshire and Wiltshire.

Since opening our office in 2009, we have provided customers with the highest level of service across residential and commercial disciplines. With strong connections to London buyers, we have become a residential sales leader and a first choice option for buyers and sellers requiring a genuinely bespoke service.
