About us

People who select Whitton & Laing are choosing a level of knowhow that spans a wide range of skills, offering the wherewithal to handle almost any property-related matter imaginable.

It’s a level of knowhow that’s been built up over 135 years that makes us one of the longest-established firms of property agents and chartered surveyors in Devon.

Indeed our unique level of expertise ranges from the sale or letting of an entire country estate, or the management of the complexities of refurbishing a multiple-leaseholder block of flats – right down to getting a set of teaspoons under the gavel in our auction house!

With offices in Exeter and Exmouth, following our merger with Palmers some years ago, we’re able to cover an area from coast to coast. 

Whitton & Laing is the agent of choice for many of the county’s solicitors handling probate and family matters, the Official Receiver and a number of other organisations and institutions – all of whom know they can trust us to provide a sound, reliable service that gets the job done with maximum skill and minimum fuss.


Close to the city centre and just a stone's throw from the high street, our spacious offices are strategically placed and easily accessible, situated less than 200metres fro Exeter Central station and opposite the renowned Royal Albert Memorial Museum.

The offices are welcoming and comfortable and with frontage to both Queen Street and the Harlequin Centre, offering one of the largest window displays in the city.

Here also, our professional services department covers full building surveys, home buyer reports, project management and provides specialist valuations for numerous building societies, banks and individuals.

Our block management team manage one of the largest portfolios of residential property in the south-west.

Finally our experienced residential lettings team look after the interests of hundreds of landlords whilst providing a user-friendly service to tenants.


Since opening as Palmers Whitton & Laing in the middle of this popular seaside town, our knowhow and professionalism have become well respected. The office's prominent corner position provides probably the largest and highest quality window display in the town. Our knowledge of the local market extends to all of the Exe Estuary villages and throughout East Devon.
