About Chapplins T&K, Bordon
Chapplins Bordon was our first branch and was opened on 26th April 1996 by Martin Hodgson, who is a financial adviser. Martin employed William Newell from the outset to run the estate agency side of the business. William, did so very successfully and soon became Martin’s business partner. In 2010, William opened a new Chapplins office in Liss, whilst Martin continued running the Bordon office. In 2017 Martin welcomed Natasha Smith on board. Natasha, or Tash, to many, has for five years successfully run her own local estate agency business known as t&k. Her professional style and friendly approach to clients complements perfectly with Chapplins ethos. So it was fitting that Chapplins incorporated Tash and t&k into their Bordon practice. So Tash now handles all of the estate agency side of the business for Bordon, whilst Martin, being a qualified financial advisor, advises clients on their mortgage and other financial needs, as he has done so locally since 1989.
We have a highly visible double fronted office which provides an excellent window display. Perfect for passing traffic, as we are the only agent ideally situated on Bordon’s High Street (A325). We have a private office available for customers requiring a more discreet and personal conversation. Chapplins Estate Agents have additional offices in Liss, Havant, and Fareham.
Bordon also encompasses the neighbouring village of Whitehill along with smaller surrounding villages and hamlets of Lindford, Headley, Kingsley, Standford, Passfield and Oakhanger. Located 10 miles north of Petersfield and halfway between London and Portsmouth; historically, the settlement emerged in the 1800’s when a turnpike linking Farnham and Petersfield was cut through Woolmer Forest, and another linked Liphook and Greatham. Travellers would pay to travel on these roads and as often happens a ‘stopping post’ grew and then formed the village of Whitehill. In 1863 Bordon Camp was established and became an important army base when the War Office purchased 1,600 acres for training land and it was known for its SEME garrison, until June 2015 when the army moved out
The two villages have evolved over the years, with a large growth in the housing market in the 1970s and 80s and modern development linking the villages. The Forest Shopping Centre with supermarkets, independent shops, community centre, Methodist Church and award winning library is currently the centre piece of the town, Tesco also have a superstore situated on the A325 along with prominent landmarks such as the domed roof at Chalet Hill and the war memorial. The area is surrounded by miles of open countryside taking in local tourist attractions such as Alice Holt Woodland Park, Birdworld and Gilbert White’s House and Museum in Selborne.
The army moving out has freed-up approximately 100 hectares of land in Whitehill & Bordon, creating an exciting opportunity for the regeneration into a prosperous and sustainable green town.
The major regeneration scheme is progressing and is proposing to deliver:
- 3,350 new homes
- 5,500 new jobs
- A thriving new town centre
- Protection and enhancement of 150 hectares of beautiful natural environment
Whitehill & Bordon is ideally located, the A3 tunnel, five miles away at Hindhead provides quick road access to the M25 and London and to South Coast cities. Main line rail access into Waterloo is only a short drive away in Liphook.
The area is well catered for educationally with schools for age groups including Mill Chase Community Technology College, a secondary school designated a technical college, which also doubles as a leisure centre. There are also a number of nursery and playgroups for younger children.
Customer Reviews for Chapplins T&K Estate Agents
Having seen the house opposite sell very quickly when it was put on the market by Chapplins T&K, we decided that when the time came to sell our house, we would use them. It’s not difficult in this day and age to monitor house prices and get an idea of what your house is worth and so when the time came to sell, we invited Tash to give us a quote, having a realistic price in mind ourselves. After all, the aim of the exercise is to sell the house, preferably as quickly as possible. Tash was amazing and spoke knowledgeably and professionally about the area and the price we could reasonably expect to achieve in the current market. We were very impressed so flouted all the advice about getting at least three quotes and signed up immediately. I’m thrilled to say that we sold our house two weeks after putting it on the market, very close to the asking price. The sale was to genuine buyers and it progressed smoothly to completion with Tash (or Martin) giving us regular updates and liaising with solicitors as necessary. We were extremely pleased with the service and outcome we received and would have no hesitation in recommending Chapplins T&K to anyone wanting to sell their house.
- Jeanette Gowing
I would like to thank you and Chaplin's T&K for the splendid job you did in finding a buyer for our house. As you are aware we started off employing the services of another Estate Agent just a short distance from you and quite frankly they caused us more harm than good. Overpricing and failing to include a number of salient selling points. You then took over, presented our house in an attractive, come and buy me brochure and within no time at all the first couple through the door wanted to and indeed did buy it. There is no doubt in our minds that had we not turned to you then we would still be looking for that elusive buyer.
- John McDonald Smith
My wife and I decided to place our property on the market with Natasha at Chapplins T&K. The support from Natasha throughout the process has been first class and the whole process very efficient. Natasha sold our property within weeks of listing and we found our next property with Chapplins T&K too. We had communication issues with the solicitors involved during the final stage of exchange and completion, however Natasha continuously ensured every party and solicitor had the information needed to ensure we hit our competition target date. Natasha has worked very hard and we are very satisfied with the level of service received. We would highly recommend Natasha and Chapplins T&K.

This is the second time where I used T & K to sell and on both occasions it has been a hassle free experience. Tash kept me fully informed at all times, their fees are excellent value for money and I wouldn't hesitate to use their services again.
- Phil Harrison-Smith
I have just sold my house through T&K and have found them very professional, efficient, helpful and friendly. I can't thank them enough- having never ever sold a property before-I would recommend them highly. Thank you T&K.
- Lynda Matthews
My wife and I are extremely grateful for all the help and support received by Tash at T&K in purchasing our new home. We have much to say to thank her for everything she’s done to help since moving house has been a very busy and stressful time unfortunately. However, unlike other estate agents in our experience, Tash has given an above and beyond, much more than expected most excellent level of service throughout our whole experience of first viewing the house to its completion and moving in..... Thanks Tash, you have been a star and for anyone considering someone to represent them in their house sale – look no further!
- James & Xiny
I cannot recommend T&K enough. They go the extra mile to help get your property sold from start to finish. Nothing is ever too much trouble. Friendly, efficient service and I have recommended them to all my friends!
