About Village Properties Estate Agents & Letting Agents

Company Profile

Estate Agents in Tilehurst

We’ve been successfully selling and letting property for local people in and around the Reading area since 1980. We opened our first office on Halls Road, at the top of Langley Hill, moving to our current office in the village centre of Tilehurst on School road in 1986. Being at the heartbeat of Tilehurst village centre affords us maximum exposure to the local population and visitors alike, as the move substantially increased our presence and gave us a much higher footfall. This contributed to the growth and continued success of our business over the years.

Today, we are the longest established independent estate agent in Tilehurst.

Areas Covered

From our Tilehurst office, we sell and let properties throughout Tilehurst, Calcot, Purley On Thames, West Reading and surrounding areas.
