Former Burnley and England footballer Brian Pilkington founded this family-run firm in 1980 – and his philosophy and friendly, practical approach to selling your home has not changed over time.

Now run by Brian’s daughter-in-law Helen Pilkington, the business can rely on statistics to tell the story of its effectiveness and popularity.

For example, in June and August 2017 online property specialist Rightmove listed Brian Pikington Estate Agents as No.1 out of 25 in the Leyland area for sales agreed.

Helen says: “We have been prominent as estate agents in Leyland now for 37 years. We are a multiple-generation family business and we believe we are successful for several reasons. “

We provide a friendly, professional and compassionate service, listening to our customers’ requirements at all times.”

Helen says Brian Pilkington Estate Agents are the choice of many Leyland residents because of the way staff treat all customers.

Offering a free, no-obligation initial meeting when someone decides to sell their home, Helen stresses that she and her colleagues always go to great pains to put potential customers at ease.

She says: “I am a people person and the business of selling a house is all about people, putting their minds at ease while dealing with one of the most stressful things anyone goes through in their life.

“Some people are fine when it comes to selling a home, while others may need a guiding hand to get through it and deal with the various elements involved. A house may come up for sale due to a death, a domestic situation or some other circumstance.

“Sometimes a home may have been in one family’s ownership for several generations and it can be an emotional time for those concerned when it comes the time to put a ‘For Sale’ sign in the garden.”

Helen likes to meet potential clients, value their property, assess what it will cost for them to move and build a working rapport with the customer.

The value of a home has no bearing on the way clients are handled. Helen explains: “We treat everybody with the same professionalism and courtesy, whether a home is being sold for half a million pounds or £50,000.”

Pilkingtons can also offer free, impartial advice on prospective purchases and provide assisted viewings if requested.

The team are ready to help answer any questions and negotiate on behalf of clients. Negotiation is very important, says Helen, who adds: “It is a skill and we advise customers to let us handle this side of selling a house.”

The firm also specialises in lettings and can put clients in touch with solicitors and mortgage advisers, including Carl McGovern, who is independent and has worked closely with Pilkingtons for 24 years.

Office hours are 9am-5pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 12 noon on Saturdays. Out of office hours you can reach a member of the team on 01772 455038.

Helen is proud to have served the people of Leyland with honesty and integrity since joining the family firm in 1984.

She says; “Leyland is a great town with a fabulous industrial heritage. The people are hard-working and down to earth.

“South Ribble was recently named the best place to live in Great Britain on the Channel 4 programme, UK’s Best Places To Live.

“Chief among the reasons is the fact that housing prices have remained stable in the Leyland area for the past five years with virtually zero unemployment, low crime rates, superb links to all major motorways and good schools.

"We are proud to serve the people of the area and we stand by our philosophy of no jargon and no BS. We get on with it!”
