At haus, we work differently to other estate agents. We’re focused on making buying and selling your property easier for you, the customer.

We’re a committed team, designed to give you a more personal service and our aim is to get you the best possible price in the least possible time. With over 150 years experience in the Sheffield housing market and over 10,000 property sales between us, we believe you're in safe hands. We can handle every aspect of your sale from start to finish…‘Full Haus’ or we do a more competitive ‘Haus Online’ option.

Our marketing team will ensure you get the best exposure as we advertise in all the right places. And we've introduced something new to the Sheffield property market, the unique FREE ‘My Property Pad’ and ‘Vendor Portal’, giving you instant access to all the details about your sale 24/7, so you’ll be able to see viewing calendars, feedback, offers and our notes on the progression of your sale.

We know every sale is different, and it’s our aim to deliver a friendly, personal and professional service at all times.

We’d love you to pop into our lovely new office for a chat and we’ll put the kettle on.

A bit about me…

I was born, brought up, educated and have always lived and worked in Sheffield. For the last 23 years I have been an estate agent at Blundells where I worked my way up the ladder to become a Partner of the company. I've always been involved in all aspects of the business from valuing properties to the creative marketing of the company and most importantly making sure great customer service is offered at all times.

Out of work...

I love spending time with my wife Siobhan and pacing up and down the touch line on a Sunday watching my eldest Ollie playing rugby and Charlie playing football. When I get time I really enjoy playing tennis, skiing, fly fishing, walking our two dogs (Max & Bertie), eating good food, and a nice glass of red is my ideal way to relax!

A bit about me…

I have lived in Sheffield for over 30 years, graduating from Sheffield Hallam University in 1996 and have spent the last 20 years working in estate agency, specialising in residential sales and valuations.

Out of work...

I live in the city with my wife Caroline and my two daughters, Eve and Alice. I am a sports enthusiast and played cricket and football for over twenty years, until realising that the opposition were too young to keep up with! I can now be found on Abbeydale golf course when I’ve got time. Away from sport, I love spending time with my family, travelling, music and nice food!

A bit about me…

I’m a born and bred Sheffield girl and got the bug for selling houses when I joined a local estate agent back in 1993. Over the years I’ve worked in most areas of the business, including new build, mortgage services and managing successful estate agency branches. I am committed to giving outstanding customer service and feel it’s a job well done when I have looked after a client from the moment they book the valuation on their property through to handing their keys over to the new buyer.

Out of work...

Most weekends you will find me hiking in the hills with my partner, Mark and we will walk for miles (but only if there's a good pub at the end serving a pint of Bradfield beer!) At home, I'm a keen gardener and I like to think I'm a budding 'Nigella' in the kitchen and love creating new dishes for my family.

A bit about me…

Born and raised in Sheffield my enthusiasm for all things property related started 25 years ago when I began working for a small Estate Agent in Sheffield. A few years later I joined a much larger organisation and became Office Supervisor in the City Centre branch. I dealt with hundreds of enquiries - helping people find their perfect home. I joined the team at haus in February 2018.

Out of work...

I have been married almost 28 years to David and we have 3 grown up daughters - Olivia, Laura and Megan. When not working I can be found on a spinning bike in my local gym, socialising with friends and family or par-taking in a spot of retail therapy.

Property Consultant

A bit about me…

Having worked as an estate agent for many years in various roles, I jumped at the chance to work for haus when the opportunity knocked. Being passionate about customer care, great service standards and excellent team work is my primary drive and focus, their ethos and mine were a perfect match and being a haus mate is fabulous!

Out of work...

I spend quality time with my partner Chris and my three energetic children, mainly standing on the side lines of a football pitch or in a park kicking a ball. This is usually rounded off nicely though watching a good film or drama series with a speciality gin in hand.

A bit about me…

I have worked in a fast paced, customer led and service driven environment for over 20 years and I am very excited to have joined the haus team! Sheffield is my home turf and I pride myself on an eye for detail and helping people across the city region achieve their dream home.

Out of work...

I love the great outdoors and enjoy spending family time walking in the Peak District. I am an enthusiastic gardener and a keen cyclist - have you seen our haus cycling jerseys?

Siobhan Appleyard
Viewing Consultant

A bit about me…

I have worked in sales since leaving school and my role at haus is great as I’m out and about matching people to property and helping them make one of their most important lifetime decisions, which is incredibly fulfilling when they actually buy from us and move in a few months later.

Out of work...

I am married to an estate agent (the one with the beard!) and have two sons plus two dogs which I love walking. Reading, dining out, enjoying most shades of wine and general fitness are the things I like to do in between work and family life.

Caroline Kirlew
Viewing Consultant

A bit about me…

My experience comes from spending many years negotiating and valuing property, being involved in every aspect of listing a property through to completion I strive to provide excellent customer service and love meeting people. Throughout my 20 years I have gained extensive knowledge of all areas including residential sales, lettings, financial services.

Out of work...

I live in Sheffield with my partner Neale and my lively little girl Eva. Born and raised in Sheffield, although I might be biased I truly believe Sheffield is a fantastic unique place to live with its diverse countryside and excellent City and facilities. Besides property being a personal passion of mine, I also love art and flowers.

Customer Reviews

  • "I have been looking for a house for a few months now and no estate agency has been as helpful as Haus have been. Unlike others they actually knew a lot abut the house they were selling and were able to answer most our questions, while getting back to us on others. I also found their customer service exceptional"
