About Us

Alex Smith and Company have been operating since 1983 (before that as Lee Shaw and Millsum), as a firm of Estate Agents and Chartered Surveyors acting in property sales on the east side of Birmingham and as surveyors over the entire Birmingham area. 

Choose Carefully…

Many online agents lack local market knowledge of the area, using call centre staff to manage enquires.  Viewings are normally done by YOU and not them, and they charge you upfront fees, even though your property is not sold yet. 

At Alex Smith & Co you will receive the personal touch with knowledgeable, friendly staff who boast decades of experience. Whether it’s your first time walking in or calling our office through to our accompanied viewing service, our staff will give you time and expertise. 

We believe that we combine our old-fashioned values that come from our experience, with the modern way of the world. Our advertising for example is split between that you can feel and touch (magazine and flyers) together with the largest selection of online property websites including Rightmove, Zoopla, Prime Location and our own website.
Whilst we still write letters in the old-fashioned way we also embrace the likes of Facebook and Twitter as a means of communications with those who use it.
Remember we aren’t just Estate Agents, we deal with all your property enquiries, problems and issues from buying your freehold to selling your home. 
Professional surveys and valuations mean we can provide you with valuations for probate purposes to “Red Book” valuations for your banks, accountants and solicitors. In fact anything that involves your property in any way we can help with, so please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss further.
Our two company Directors are Alex Smith, FRICS and David Simms, FNAEA.
Please note that we are members of both the RICS and the NAEA.
