Our Team

 

Kevin began his career in 1975 working for a small independent agent and became a Fellow of the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA) in 1984. In 1988 Kevin opened Stevens Estate Agents in Henfield which has gone from strength to strength so much so that in January 2017 he launched Fine & Country Downland villages to run alongside Stevens to showcase the larger country houses within the Downland Villages. Having opened his own Estate Agency in Henfield in 1988 which has a grown from strength to strength into a well-known brand ‘Stevens Estates Ltd‘ he felt that after many successful years it was time to take on a new challenge and this was to be the launch of the Fine & Country brand covering the surrounding Downland villages. Kevin has a wealth of experience in dealing with residential and country-house property and on delivering a bespoke service to his clients. Kevin is held in high regard by many local property owners for whom he has been privileged to act for on numerous occasions as they move within the villages. Kevin is married to Carolynne who works alongside him as the company secretary, they live in Henfield and have 2 daughters, one of which runs the Lettings and Management division of Stevens. His interests outside of the office include golfing, football and fine wine!
