Property Search

Lodestone Property is a new kind of estate agents. We have created a modern, successful estate agency with a focus on providing a quality, personal service to our clients selling and letting property in Bruton, Wells, Castle Cary, Frome and the surrounding areas.

Lodestone Property estate agency was set up in September 2016 by Cathy Morris-Adams and Sue Macey who wanted to create a new type of estate agency which responded to the more immediate needs of the world we live in today without compromising the quality of service provided by a traditional local estate agent. Between them they have lived in Somerset for over 50 years. They feel that they can provide a better service for their clients through connecting and building on their already extensive network and vast local knowledge, rather than sitting at a desk waiting for the phone to ring. 

Lodestone Property estate agents are based in Bruton and Wells, Somerset. We cover buying, selling and renting residential property in Bruton, Wells and the local areas including postcodes BA4, BA5, BA6, BA7, BA9, BA10 and BA11.

We have an team of mature and locally selected viewing staff who with their knowledge of the immediate area, can give the viewer a positive and informative experience, which at the same time benefits the vendors who receive regular, detailed feedback.
