Our History & Expansion
Our first Cumbrian Properties office opened in Keswick in 1994. Shortly after this our second office was opened in Windermere and David’s brother Adrian joined the business and opened the head office in Carlisle. We have grown and expanded massively over the last 25 years, we have always been keen to be the county’s leading family run estate agents in Cumbria.
From day one we have been extremely proactive and always wanting to expand and develop our company. We have worked incredibly hard and have been able to aquire various local estate agents over the years in not just Cumbria but Lancashire too, which includes; Property Selecta of Carlisle, Hopes of Wigton, Homesearch Direct of Whitehaven, Keith Pattinsons of Carlisle, Halifax of Windermere, Carter Jonas of Windermere, and Roger Thompsons of Kendal.
As a company we strive to be market leaders and are proud to have created a property agency and a well-known brand that is ultimately devoted to the property needs of people and families in our region.
With 2 generations of the family now very much involved in the business we have most recently welcomed Adrian’s son Connor and daughter Caitlin to the team who have joined David and Julia’s daughters Rachael and Sasha at the Carlisle head office. As a family we love everything about property, some would say it’s in our blood. It’s definitely what makes us tick and most of all it is what we love. Living close to the Lake District we are so lucky and extremely appreciative that we get to see some of the best properties our beautiful county has to offer.
So, from our family to your family let us help you sell your home or find your dream forever home.
Caring about our community
We are extremely proud this year to be a new patron and sponsor for Carlisle Youth Zone.
Carlisle Youth Zone are more than just a youth club, it’s an incredible place with incredible people, supporting a worthy cause like this special place means so much to us as a family. They are a charity with no funding from the local council who rely on business’s like ourselves to help keep them open and to support them.
They have been open since 2011 and in that time around 12,000 young people from ages 7 to 18 have benefitted from what they do. For some it’s a place of fun, somewhere to meet new friends, be themselves and make the most of new opportunities… And for others it’s somewhere safer and more supportive than home.
All of the wonderful things they do day to day at the centre are purely a hook to work with the most disadvantaged in the city – those with disabilities, those in poverty, the teenage parents, the young offenders, the young person without a positive/ stable home life, the victims of bullying.
They support the average young person with the stresses and complexities of modern life – the mental health issues, making positive friendships, keeping safe and being aware of dangers, exploring ambitions and potential careers.
We want to continue to work with Carlisle Youth Zone so they can continue to work with kids, so they can change lives, families and communities. Carlisle Youth Zone works hard for this city’s future and they need everyone’s support.
Cumbrian Properties annual charity golf day.
We have held this successful charity day for the last 2 years and both have been very rewarding. Each year we have invited friends, colleagues and customers whom all share David our director’s favourite past time golf to join us for a day’s golf and to raise money for a chosen charity. 2018 we raised money for Mind Charity, great day and we raised £700. This was a fantastic day and we were extremely blessed with the weather.

Sign of the times and our Brand
As part of our rebranding, and celebrating our 25th anniversary this year, it was important to us our website reflected our company, our services, our vision and of course our identity in the best way possible.
In a world where we are so dependent on the internet we know and understand our customers thrive on being able to meet us face to face in our offices but also having a website that does much more than property listings.
We intentionally created a style of board that’s distinct, elegant and stylish a board you’ll be proud to a have outside your property.
We hope you like seeing as our boards around the county as much as we do!
We currently have three offices; Carlisle Head Office, Penrith and Whitehaven. We employ a team of local property experts who are absolutely dedicated and passionate about what they do.
Our team is an extension of our family, with some of our employees being with us now for over 20 years! It’s an incredible feeling when you employ people who share the same hunger for making sales and property deals as we do, we would not be where we are today without their hard work, skills and enthusiasm.
Our team is key to our success.
