About Us

Archer & Partners is an independent estate agents which opened in October 2001 and is owned by Graeme Archer MNAEA and David Shelton MNAEA. Over the years, Archer & Partners have built a superb reputation for providing a friendly and professional service without the sales pressure. The majority of business is received via recommendations from previous clients and the local community.

The office is situated in Polegate High Street close to the railway station, bus stops and car parking areas. We are open 6 days a week and the office provides a relaxing atmosphere in which to discuss all your property requirements. Most of the property we deal with is in Polegate, Wannock and Willingdon; however, we do receive enquiries from buyers searching within the Eastbourne area and surrounding villages.

We have recently invested further into up-to-date office computer software, new illuminated office window showing pictures with QR Codes as well as this newly designed website providing many useful links.

Graeme Archer MNAEA

Graeme started in estate agency in 1987 and moved to Polegate in 1988, working for a corporate agency until he and business partner, David Shelton opened Archer & Partners in 2001. Graeme, who lives in Polegate with his wife and family, is very experienced in the local property market, which includes Wannock, Lower Willingdon, Willingdon and Hampden Park.

David Shelton MNAEA

David started in estate agency in 1990 working for a corporate company. David worked with Graeme in Polegate for 4 years before moving to Hailsham where he gained valuable experience dealing with village properties, then on to Eastbourne. In 2001, David opened Archer & Partners with Graeme and the company continues to strengthen its reputation for professionalism.

Other members of the team are secretaries Sue Cooke and Diana Morris.

Ombudsman Scheme

As a consumer it is very important that when you come to sell your property you choose an agent who is a member of a redress scheme. We are members of the Ombudsman Scheme which is an independent service for dealing with disputes between member agencies and consumers. Archer & Partners has also just become a licensed NAEA (National Association of Estate Agents) agent.


Since opening in 2001, Archer & Partners have been supporting charities and good causes by raising funds from our photocopying service. Over the years we have raised monies for Children with Cancer, Willingdon Primary School, ambulance rapid response defibrillators as well as giving donations to support Polegate Primary School and Polegate Community Centre. In 2011 we raised £1,000 for St Wilfrid's Hospice, Eastbourne and Graeme and David personally matched this amount to make a total of £2,000.

This year we are raising funds in support of the JPK Project and will be shortly announcing which charity or good cause to support for next year.
