About Us

Established in September 2019, Chapman Stickels is a company of independent estate agents, headed by the two founding partners Robert Chapman and Benedict Stickels. The company’s ethos is firmly based on core values – to provide impartial and informed advice on all aspects of residential property, ranging from the marketing and sale of individual village and country houses, development sites, conversions, planning matters and lettings.

Robert and Benedict have lived and worked in Suffolk and north Essex for most of their lives and have 45 years’ combined experience within the region, both having previously occupied senior positions in corporate and independent companies.  An extensive local knowledge, combined with long-standing and well-regarded reputations, have made the partnership a natural collaboration.

Our personal, client-based approach, which embraces traditional values and media, coupled with a strong focus on digital marketing, is, we believe, a more dynamic solution than a simply online or impersonal digital one. Extensive local knowledge being the key.

We fully embrace the changing face of our industry. Our proactive approach includes a robust, dynamic and broad-based digital marketing campaign – the cornerstone of our ability to service our clientele.

Despite the ongoing economic and political uncertainty, the microclimate of our area remains upbeat, particularly the Stour Valley, given its outstanding beauty and its excellent communication links. We chose the bustling town of Hadleigh as our location from where we are centrally placed to serve our geographical region: South Suffolk and North Essex. Our area is a constant lure to both local and national buyers – particularly from the Home Counties and London.
