About the Employer

22-24 The Thoroughfare
IP20 9AU

Durrants are independent estate agents. We sell, manage, and let residential, commercial, agricultural, and holiday properties. Alongside this we also have a range of other professional services that our competitors can’t match, including an in-house architect, chartered surveyors, and auctioneers.

Durrants were founded in 1853, the same year that Vincent Van Gogh was born, Charlotte Bronte’s Villette was published, and the first shots were fired in the Crimean War between Russia and the Ottoman Empire. Since then we have not only survived but thrived, expanding and diversifying into our current position

We have offices across the region including Southwold, Diss and London, plus dedicated auction rooms in Beccles specialising in Fine Art. We work mainly in East Anglia, but our services are nationwide.

Most important to us is holding true to the values that have served us so well since the beginning. Durrants is honest and trustworthy, gives friendly, excellent service and has a deep understanding of the industry with a pedigree few can match.
