We are an independently owned Estate Agency franchise serving the Somerset and North Somerset area since 2002. We began trading as Annagram Property Services and later Annagram Team growing our network of offices to include Cheddar, Wedmore, Winscombe, Burnham on Sea, Congresbury, and a dedicated Lettings Office. Joint Managing Directors Edward Creswick, Sue Iles and Neil Jenkin re-branded the Company as CJ Hole in September 2012 extending the franchise group to over 80 offices operating under four established brand names nationwide.

Our main areas of business are residential sales, lettings and property management along with land and new homes. We are also able to refer financial services and conveyancing. The Burnham office offers a wide range of homes and houses for sale not only in Burnham, but also Highbridge, Berrow, Brean, Brent Knoll, East Brent, Mark, Rooksbridge, East & West Huntspill, Pawlett, Purition, Woolavington & all surrounding Villages & Hamlets.

We charge a percentage per property sale depending upon the service level required and type of agency agreement. There is a schedule of lettings fees within our “Landlords Guide to Lettings” (complimentary copy available on request). Tenants fees are payable upon application with details available upon request.

We pride ourselves on our very high level of personal service and high profile marketing which includes local newspaper advertising in the Weston and Somerset Mercury, Cheddar Valley Gazette, Clevedon Times, Burnham and Highbridge Weekly News and the Western Daily Press. We also advertise on a number of well-known national internet sites including Rightmove.

Three more years experience was gained with a very well connected Estate Agent in the centre of Bristol, where property auctions were extremely successful. A decision to return to Somerset with a Burnham on Sea Estate Agent brought many new friends and colleagues. Working in a fast expanding seaside town with such a wide variety of properties brought a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction. He was later very privileged to work with Colin Kemish, a surveyor at Stilings, who were later taken over by Lloyds Bank under the Banner of Black Horse Agency. After this he started a new office in the town with C J Hole and together with Edward Creswick a very well respected business was created. Five years later Michael’s long awaited dream came true and he opened his own office in the High Street. Edward and his staff joined Michael later and built up one of the most successful agencies in the town. Upon retirement Michael sold the Business. Now six years later Edward has persuaded him to work part time in his new very busy High Street office.
