"I’m pleased to recommend PFK. Their professionalism in preparing our valuation and particulars quickly attracted enquiries that the team handled expertly. As a result the sale process proved far less daunting than we had imagined."J. Cameron, Land Agency
"PFK still enjoys the good reputation today that you did in the 1970s, and rightly so. The contractors you recommend are of the highest standard, you have an eye for detail, and always take into account the views of the farmer or residential tenant as well as the owner."C. Stacey, Land Agency
Cumbria has been home to PFK since 1876 and we know this beautiful region from top to bottom. We recognise how important land is to rural communities, and we understand how widely people’s needs can vary in relation to land.
In some instances, our clients require us to be supportive and proceed with sensitivity; in others they require us to be commercially-minded and ambitious. Our highly experienced team is able to calibrate the services we deliver precisely according to each client’s needs.
.In every case we deliver the highest possible standard of service, and act to energise our clients’ land, maximising the return on each transaction. We do this with integrity that’s closely connected to our region, and expertise that’s connected seamlessly within our business.
The PFK Land Agency team combines a genuine passion for our region with in-depth knowledge of the issues relating to local land, plus extensive experience and excellent qualifications.
