About us

We're your go-to property agency in Hove. What makes us different?

Lawton & Dawe Properties is a well-established property agency in Hove.

We are a lettings agency and a sales estate agent.  Our business delivers tenant find, as well as managed and premium property management services to landlords.  Also, if you’re looking for a home to rent, we’d be very pleased to help you find one. Equally, we can help you to buy or sell your home, mostly within the BN3 postcode.

But, that’s not all. Lawton & Dawe Properties also offers specialist block management services via our sister company, Property Fusion.

In summary, if it involves buying, letting or managing property in and around Hove, we can do it for you.  Contact us today for more information.

Our history, approach and guiding principles

Lawton & Dawe Properties was founded in 2010 by Lucy Dawe with a clear vision.  In essence, Lucy wanted her business to be different. Distinctive, even.  Why?  Because in her previous she witnessed practices that may have been somewhat less than professional.  Let’s say no more on that…Therefore, Lucy has been super-keen to instill the following values throughout her business:

Here’s the thing.  Given that we’re near the sea, in East Sussex, the business needed to swim against the tide. (See what we did there).

And, that’s how we are today. Furthermore, with a strong sense of social purpose (read more about how we support local charities here), we aim to treat your home as if it were ours.  As a result, Lawton & Dawe Properties has achieved a highly- respected reputation throughout Brighton and Hove.

With our expertise, we believe that we make everything look simple.

Who are we?

We’re a team of eight, not forgetting Spike (Head of HR) and Panda (Spike’s best friend).  Each member of staff has received a high degree of training.  Why?  Because not only is this essential within the property sector, good training delivers excellent customer service.

Our staff treats everyone in the same professional, courteous manner.

Service, not sales

Our property team has NO targets.  Not a single one.  Why does this matter?  Because sales targets could mean that your needs could come second, rather than first.  That will not do!
