Exeter really is one of the best places to live in Britain. We are proud of our city and this part of Devon; here are a few reasons why.

Estate Agents Exeter

Exeter is Devon’s capital city and main commercial and cultural centre. Often described as the ‘city in the country’, it is a relatively compact city with a population of approximately 124,000 and it is surrounded by countryside within a ten minute drive. With a rich history which can be traced back to the Roman occupation, the city expanded in the 12th century after the consecration of St Peter’s Cathedral in 1133 and again after the building of the country’s oldest ship canal. The cathedral is the architectural ‘gem’ of the city which survived the 1942 air raids which flattened surrounding streets during the Second World War. It boasts the longest vaulted ceiling in the country. The Cathedral Green forms the heart of the city and is home to specialist shops, diverse dining experiences and some impressive architecture.

The striking Princesshay Shopping Centre and refurbished Guildhall centre, are prime shopping destinations for the county and the city has a vibrant cafe and arts culture, award winning museum and numerous restaurants with diverse international cuisines. Exeter has become more cosmopolitan in recent years and this has been enhanced by the growth of its internationally renowned University. Large organisations such as the Met Office, have been attracted to the area and the city is seen as an economic powerhouse for the region helped by excellent transport links to London (two and a half hours by rail), easy access to the M5 and an expanding international airport. Local railway stations link surrounding towns and villages and there is an excellent bus network.

Exeter Chiefs Rugby Club and the 2016 rugby world cup, have helped raise the profile of the city and numerous sporting and leisure pursuits are provided with easy access to the coast, including the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, and countryside including Dartmoor.

Our city attracts a wide demographic of people looking to move into or stay in the area, ranging from young people looking to rent, to the retired looking to buy. Cooksleys are pleased to be able to offer a diverse range of properties to buy and properties to rent, from our busy Exeter city centre office.

What Our Customers Say...

  • As a tenant for five years now, I have always been happy with their services. Every time I contacted them about maintenance they replied promptly and satisfactorily."Leonardo Pasta. Exeter
  • I bought a house through Cooksleys last month and was very impressed by how they handled the sale; when the time comes to move on, I will definitely contact them about selling where I live. I found them professional and efficient."Paul W. Exeter
  • You are so efficient, brilliant, thank you for dealing with this promptly"Mrs D. Surrey
  • Thank you to everyone concerned for their help and support and to you for your lovely smile and encouragement at such a stressful time for me. Made the process of renting my house out simple and stress free."Penny C. Thailand
  • Thank you for all your help you personally are our favourite Estate Agents we have ever dealt with, it’s partly the sense of humour, keep it up!!!"Dr James. Exeter
  • Many thanks for getting me moving and for keeping me sane throughout!"Mrs H. St Thomas
  • My family and I have been very thankful of Cooksley’s guidance and professionalism, for both buying and selling. On one occasion they suggested, and to our delight, achieved a higher price than other agents invited to quote."Mr Cole. Exeter
  • I have a long-standing business relationship with Cooksleys and have always found them to very fair to my tenants - all and any problems are reported promptly, enabling me to deal with them quickly. I have always considered myself to be a good landlord, carrying out fairly major updating which is often necessary when tenants remain for a number of years, and not always receiving the same consideration in return. Unfortunately, as I know from experience, whilst some tenants are quite happy to carry out minor day-to-day maintenance as if it were their own property, some barely consider it their responsibility to change a light bulb!! Changeovers can tend to be difficult, as obviously, as a landlord, you do not want the property to be empty any longer than absolutely necessary, so a certain amount of co-operation is required from tenants, something which is not always forthcoming!"Caroline. Isle of Man
  • I would highly recommend Simon Rich at Cooksleys, Exeter. His communication skills and attention to detail in a recent sale can only be described as outstanding. Simon is thoroughly professional and trustworthy and I cannot praise him enough. He went far beyond my expectations for any estate agent. Five stars to Simon."Mrs S. Jersey
