Our estate agency office in Godalming opened as the first Burns & Webber office in 1986 and specialises in residential properties for sale in Godalming and the surrounding villages, with properties for sale throughout GU3, GU7 and GU8. It is managed by Charlie Simpson.
Charlie comments; Having lived and worked locally all my life, my career in estate agency begun when I started working for a small independent firm based in Farnham. Throughout my career I have worked in a number of different towns within Surrey, but have truly found my home in beautiful Godalming. I have now worked at Burns & Webber for several years and believe we are very well placed to sell homes, in all different price ranges, due to our highly experienced team who have extensive knowledge of the local property market and who are dedicated to providing an exceptional standard of service. During my spare time I very much enjoy cooking quality food, listening to music, playing football and spending time with my family and friends.
You can find links to all the properties we have for sale in these locations at the bottom of this page.
We have recently purchased our first home and to say we are happy is an understatement. Burns and Webber have been professional throughout the process, going the extra mile in organising the multiple viewings we needed to feel comfortable to proceed. Negotiations were not always easy, but Karl maintained control of the process and we ended up completing with a happy outcome for all parties in the onward chain. Thank you for all your help, we will be very happy in our lovely new home!
The team at Burns and Webber were professional and friendly and Karl made huge efforts to help us get to the finish line selling our property. Would definitely recommend - thank you for the great service.
Thoroughly recommend Burns & Webber. Made our house sale a very pleasurable experience
Having been an agent and used many agents it was a breath of fresh air to deal with such a professional agent. We need more agents like this to improve the reputation! Joanne was outstanding to deal with and went above and beyond for us. She was a big part of our special move. A huge thank you.
Burns and Webber (Karl and Charlie) steered us through a quick sale and purchase with professionalism and calmness. We felt we were kept well informed at each step in the process. Thank you.
Having viewed several properties with several agents in Godalming my wife and I agreed that Burns and Webber were the best agents by some margin. As well as the flawless 'basic' admin tasks of confirming appointments promptly, arriving on time and performing follow up calls we were impressed by the service beyond this. In particular the local knowledge and non-pushy sales practices led to an overall feeling of people knowing what they were talking about and also understood what a big decision and commitment buying a house is. Thanks to Joanne and the team.
Excellent, efficient service from first marketing to completion. I was able to leave the B&W team to get on with things in the full knowledge that they were doing all that was necessary to move the process along. I am more than happy to recommend them without hesitation; they will not let you down.
Our move was complicated with the sale of 2 houses and the purchase of another. We had bad luck with a buyer pulling out late in the process and another buyer in the chain who gave misinformation to their agent, leading to delays and stress. The whole process was pretty stressful and it demonstrated the importance of having an honest and professional agent working for you. Joanne was proactive, understanding and communicated well with us throughout. We have discovered that the house-buying process can still be tainted by some less than scrupulous estate agents and buyers. For this reason it really is worth choosing your agent carefully. We would highly recommend Burns and Webber Godalming.
All the staff were very professional and friendly. The house was quite a difficult sell but Joanne Fox was determined to get the sale. She plugged away and finally found the right people for the house. The buyers are happy and we are happy.
I will definitely be recommending Burns and Webber in the future.
Throughout the process all the staff at Burns and Webber have been excellent with good communication, especially throughout a slightly difficult & prolonged exchange period.
Joanne made every effort to make sure our house sale ran as smoothly as possible. Always available to talk through everything and give sound advice.
I would highly recommend Burns & Webber to friends and family.
Difficult clients, difficult circumstances. Charlie's patience, efficiency, hard work and diplomacy triumphed in the long term. I am most grateful.
The team found a good buyer at a good price and kept him happy for a long time while we changed our mind twice about the property we were buying. Thank you very much
Never have I received such amazing service from anyone or any company before. Without Adam and the team, I'm confident that our sell and purchase would not have been successful. Will recommend to everyone!
We have been extremely impressed by Burns & Webber - in particular Charlie Simpson. From initial viewings through to negotiations, chasing the chain and managing the entire process, Charlie has been thorough, organised, timely and professional. We initially sold our property through an online agency - who to be quite frank - were useless.
Charlie's workload doubled in this instance and we recognise and deeply appreciated that his job was made harder for this because he basically became our estate agent as well as Croft Road's.
After receiving your service we fully appreciate how much work goes into managing the chain and would not make that mistake again.
I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending your fantastic office - and in particular Charlie Simpson - to anyone and if we were to move again we would definitely look to use you. Thank you again!
We were extremely impressed with your professionality, communication and courtesy throughout the process. It made everything so much easier and less stressful! Your prompt and detailed replies to our emails really made everything smoother and we felt looked after really well all the way through. Thank you!
Very pleased with the service provided by the firm - in particular Charlie who was very efficient and a pleasure to deal with.
Having used Burns & Webber twice now we would highly recommend them to both buyers and sellers - many thanks.
Thank you to everyone at Burns & Webber Godalming. I really appreciated all your help in guiding me through a rather long and drawn out process and for keeping positive when things didn't go quite to plan.
The knowledge and expertise of all the staff gave me confidence that we would have a good outcome with the sale of our house. I also used your recommendations for a lawyer, surveyor and moving company, all of whom were excellent.
I would advise anyone looking for a good local estate agents to use Burns & Webber. Many thanks.
From our first meeting with Adam Boshoff, we knew that we were in the hands of professionals.
Robbie took over the day to day sale of our home. He was outstanding at communication, always responding quickly to emails and calls. Always cheerful and positive with a high level of empathy. We felt that he gave boundless energy and time to our sale.
There were some stress points towards the end of the sale but these were handled by Burns & Webber with calm and with a determination to close the sale. I would definitely recommend this excellent team to anyone wanting to put their house on the market, and already have done.
Hi Robbie, thanks for your help in the purchase of our cottage. Throughout the process, you've been friendly, helpful and kept me informed of all developments.
You are most definitely a credit to Burns & Webber. Thanks
I have been very satisfied with every aspect of Burns & Webber's sale of my property in Witley. Each member of staff whom I've met has been very polite and helpful and has made the sale a smooth procedure.
I can certainly recommend Burns & Webber for their efficiency and friendly attitude.
Thank you so much for all your help in finding us the perfect home. The experience with Burns & Webber was terrific from first viewing, right through to collecting the keys.
Charlie was brilliant, friendly and professional and I really felt he helped make the process so much smoother.
Charlie (and all the team) came across as people with a great deal of integrity.
I am highly recommending B&W to my friends who are considering moving to the area. Thank you so much again.
We were so pleased we chose Burns & Webber Godalming to sell our house.
The whole process was fairly straightforward in that we found a buyer straightaway after an open day. They offered our asking price and less than 4 months later we had moved into our new home.
Charlie was our main contact, he was always at the end of the phone if anything ever came up - always helpful and kept us in the loop throughout.
I would highly recommend B&W to sell your property.
The service provided by the team at Burns & Webber was fantastic. We had a problematic move but the team remained supportive and helpful throughout.
I would recommend Burns & Webber for both buyers and sellers especially compared to other agents we have encountered throughout the process.
I would like to thank the whole team for their continued support.

We are now fast approaching the second phase of the Government’s crackdown on private Buy-to-Let landlords, with the restriction on the lucrative tax relief claimed on rental properties. The first, being the rise in Stamp Duty for 2nd home and investment purchases which came into effect following last spring’s budget. This had the desired effect of slowing down the stampede and probably stopping many cautious or first time investment purchasers, but many seasoned and canny buyers realised that the long term forecast for the housing market, especially in the south east, is likely to continue its upward trend and whilst the additional costs are a burden, the capital growth is the prize.... read more
It’s no secret that buying or selling a home is the biggest investment we typically make in our lifetime. So, when the time comes to sell we naturally want to make sure we get the best possible price. However, by listing your property at an inflated price, you could actually end up losing money, as well as a considerable amount of precious time in the process.
Take the recent example by consumer watchdog Which? highlighting a seller who placed their property on the market after obtaining valuations, ranging from £480,000 to... read more
