Debbie Fortune Estate Agents is a family owned, totally independent sales and lettings agent, established in January 2009, and a member of The Guild of Property Professionals.

Our enthusiastic team is dedicated to providing a service that is friendly, personal and professional. We have an enormous amount of experience; Debbie has been selling homes since 1978, and over the years has dealt with literally thousands of sales covering North Somerset and Somerset, including Wrington Vale, the Yeo Valley, Chew Valley and The Mendips. She has lived in the area all her life and she and her team bring a wealth of knowledge of the property market in this area which simply cannot be challenged by any other estate agent, and which has contributed to the company’s success.

To sum up, the team at Debbie Fortune Estate Agents, in all our offices, are here to look after you every step of the way. We aim to make the experience of selling or letting your property as stress free as possible, and believe the core values of service and personal attention to be vital to our success. Whilst we recognise that our clients and customers lead busy lives and indeed the internet and call centre system can be very useful, we all think it is so much better to do business on a personal level. Call in to the offices to see what we mean, you can be guaranteed a great cup of coffee and a warm welcome, always with a smile!
