Estate Agents for Worcester, Malvern and the shire villages
Established in Malvern in 1966, Philip Laney & Jolly have developed into one of Worcestershire's leading estate agents, property managers and lettings agents. We are privately owned, and independently run.
The first Philip Laney & Jolly Worcester office was opened on 1 February 1969. We are very proud of our prestigious new office, which is located on the corner of College Street, near the Cathedral. As well as estate agency sales staff, we also have block management and lettings staff on the premises.
Our staff are fully trained, exceptionably knowledgeable, and professional.
We employ members of the National Association of Estate Agents, the Association of Residential Letting Agents, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, and the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales. We have recently registered as a SAFEagent, proving that we have client money protection in place.
Our state-of-the-art thin screen technology means that Worcester office staff can access all of the sales, lettings and block management software, in real time, on our central server in Malvern.
This industry leading technology is coupled with the best that the internet can provide. For example, we use Rightmove which is the largest property portal in the UK, to advertise our properties. We also have our own App for iPhone (first in Malvern) and utilise QR codes to help sell our properties.
We would love to display your property details in the windows of our offices, which are all in prime locations for Estate Agents – and we are open 6 days a week

“Now is the time”
The media continues to be confused about the future of property values and sales volumes. However, these things always come in waves, and it will probably not be long before we look back at this time and wonder what all the fuss was about.
From a seller’s perspective the question is whether this is a good time to sell on the basis that prices might fall further or a bad time to sell because prices have fallen.
Firstly, we should look at things in perspective and understand that there is a difference between a regular seller or buyer and a professional property investor. Certainly investors are currently doing well as they are taking advantage of reduced asking prices.
But from a “normal” seller or buyer’s perspective, in some ways it wouldn’t matter if prices were to fall further after having sold or bought, because presumably, you won’t be selling or buying again in the near future.
The value of a property is only relevant when it is on the market, just as the tourist exchange rate for the Euro is only really relevant when you cross The Channel.
There is also some comfort to be taken from the fact that the long term trend for prices has always been upwards, so any fall could be expected to be followed by another rise before you move on in, say, four or five years time. So any immediate “losses” would probably have been cancelled out whilst you have been enjoying your home.
Property ownership remains a bedrock of our personal satisfaction and security.
The key is to take advantage of the choice available to you, buy somewhere you can afford and really call home and ignore short-term price fluctuations, knowing that the roof over your head is your own.
So if you have for any reason been considering a move, now might just be a surprisingly good time to do so.
We have a number of frustrated buyers who simply need access to a wider choice of property. We have shown them what we have, but desperately need more stock.
So why not call us for sincere straight-talking advice about the possibility of an early sale at what could be an impressive price.
