About the area

Our Bournemouth Office

As one of Hampshire and Dorset’s leading estate agents, Hearnes has blossomed from a small family-run agency in the heart of Bournemouth to a thriving business with branches scattered all over the area.

We are experts in our field and provide our customers with a specialist service that is friendly, professional and efficient. With extensive knowledge of the local area and years of industry experience, we deliver the very best in customer service, and ensure our clients receive the best possible advice when renting, buying or selling their home.

Since opening our first branch in Bournemouth back in 1996, we’ve undergone a few changes over the years. Sally Gravener heads up the Bournemouth office, alongside her hard-working, talented team of staff. Sally, who joined Hearnes in the Ringwood branch in 2001, is customer service driven and brings with her years of industry experience. As a long-standing local resident and co-owner of the company, Sally has considerable knowledge of the local area, and offers unrivalled marketing expertise to all her clients.

She has dealt with a wealth of different properties across Ringwood, The New Forest, Christchurch, Bournemouth and Poole whilst maintaining a close relationship with the local community through sponsorship, fundraising and events.

Boasting a large portfolio of diverse properties, our professional, experienced staff will do their utmost to ensure each client receives an exceptional level of customer service, and will work diligently to make the whole process as simple and straightforward as possible.

We work closely with our neighbouring Poole office to offer extra exposure to potential buyers. Our team of pro-active staff are always one step ahead of the game, giving exclusive access to potential investments, and often arranging viewings before properties are officially released on the market. Experienced, diligent and ambitious, our friendly team will be on hand to help with every aspect of your property search; nothing is too much trouble or effort.

Attention to detail is key within our marketing strategy. Each property will be photographed to the highest quality with detailed floor plans for each potential sale. Properties are advertised in our in-house glossy brochures, a variety of print publications including three glossy magazines, local newspapers and several online property websites, and we also post regular updates on each of our Hearnes social media channels.

If you are thinking of selling or buying in the Bournemouth area, Sally and her wonderful team at Hearnes in Bournemouth would love to hear from you. If you would prefer a face-to-face meeting, the kettle is always on!

Sally Gravener

Sally began her estate agency career in 2001 and quickly established herself as the top sales person in Ringwood for a large corporate estate agency. Subsequently, at the age of 24, she was offered a managerial position at their Highcliffe office and through innovation, drive and maintenance of the highest standards of customer service, Sally lead this branch to record business levels. In 2010 she became Shareholder and Director of Hearnes in Ringwood. With an established team in Ringwood maintaining a market leading position, Sally was able to expand the business further by opening a Bournemouth town centre office in July 2013, where she looks forward to dealing with a diverse range of properties in a lively, cosmopolitan town. Sally is accustomed to dealing with a variety of property, ranging from waterside and rural homes to town centre houses and apartments. This experience combined with her attention to detail and acute understanding of customer needs will offer the buyers and sellers of Bournemouth an unrivalled level of service and an outstanding moving experience, helping to alleviate the pressures of moving home.
