Stacks Property Finders

House hunting in Devon? Don't make a move until you've got the gen from Stacks Property Finders! Grace Jephson is your fast-track to finding that forever home in the South Hams and Dartmoor.

Thinking of upping sticks? Thanks to Covid, there’s never been a more appealing time to escape the rat race and live the Devon dream, whether you’re thinking of going freelance, got pre-schoolers soon to start big school or you’re keen to get your mitts on that forever-home before you’re priced out of the market.

Take my advice and get Ed Jephson of Stacks on speed dial. He has his fingers on the pulse of what’s on the South Hams and Dartmoor market (sometimes before it’s on the market) thanks to a bulging little black book of agents and insider know-how. I wished I’d known them when I moved to Devon from the south-east as I know only too well how fantasy house-hunting on Rightmove is very different from the reality of juggling full-time work, a four year-old and a ‘helpful’ husband while trying to find a dream pad 200 miles away.

Here’s how it works: once you’ve paid your retainer, Ed sets up a Zoom call with you and your partner, to find out what you want. (It’s essential you’re both on the call as he has a property-hound’s nose for sniffing out any wish-list anomalies between the pair of you). Having come up with an initial hit-list, he whittles it down by visiting and videoing properties in which you’re interested, finally narrowing it down for your viewings. He’ll even help you find somewhere to stay if you have to travel any distance to do so.

Ed is really easy to work with, intuitive and clever, what’s more he knows exactly what you’re going through as he did it with his own family, moving from London to Totnes. Close family links with the South Hams, plus over 10 years in the property buying and letting biz means his  advice is always on the money and that’s important as it’s Ed who will be holding your hand right through the process, from sale negotiations, through the conveyancing and right to the moment you’re handed the key and get to pop that cork.

Feet itching to make that move? Read his tips on Moving to Devon, then give Ed a bell on 01803 732128 or 07711 724939 or email That one call could remove a lot of the house-hunting headache (and potential heartache) and kickstart a whole new life in the West Country. And that’s got to be worth picking up the phone for.
