A long history of property expertise


The firm was established in Henley-on-Thames in 1802 by Mr William Simmons of Sonning, and continued by his son William.  Franklin Simmons, the great-nephew of the founder, opened the Basingstoke office towards the end of the 19th Century.


At the conclusion of the First World War a knighthood was bestowed on Anker Simmons, brother of Franklin, for his services to agriculture.  Following the acquisition of the Basingstoke firm, Jennings & Rainbird, Simmons & Sons began a long involvement with the Basingstoke and Reading cattle markets.


Today, true to our heritage, Simmons & Sons operate from the historic centres of Henley-on-Thames, Basingstoke, Marlow and Sherfield-on-Loddon with an additional office on the Peper Harow Estate near Guildford.

The  partnership  remains  privately  owned  and  totally  independent  of  any external influence or finance. This enables us to provide unbiased advice on all property matters.


Our current partners hold a wealth of property and real estate experience, and we remain true to the original principles of service and integrity that has been at the core of the firm since 1802.
