About Us

Canters sell houses, and create homes, in Grimsby, Cleethorpes and the surrounding area and have a proud history dating back to 1946.  Our philosophy is to utilise a traditional approach to Estate Agency combined with modern techniques to provide a high level of success and client satisfaction.  We are experts across all sectors of the housing market advising on the sale of houses to the first time buyer, helping growing families move into their next home, promoting prestigious homes to executive buyers and we have an unrivalled reputation for the sale of new homes, individual plots and development land.

But there’s a lot more to us than that.  We also let and manage houses.  We utilise specialist software and look after both our clients and tenants, after all this house is someone’s home.  We collect rents, arrange repairs, facilitate statutory compliance and provide regular updates to our landlord clients.  Again we make sure that our traditional customer focussed approach is enhanced by up to date marketing methods. 

The team has been led by James Chisholm BSc (Hons) MRICS since 2013, a practising Chartered Surveyor who qualified in 2002 specialising in Estate Agency, New Homes and professional valuations.

We care about what we do, the service we provide and relationships with our clients, purchasers and tenants. Occasionally we get things wrong, we’re only human. We hope you never need to make a complaint, usually queries can be dealt with quickly and easily and are often simply a misunderstanding but for the most serious of cases we have a Complaints Handling Procedure which you can access here.
