Our Story

The business was founded by a young 24-year-old entrepreneur David Davies in 1981. Opening his first office on Baldwin Street in the heart of St Helens Town Centre.

We recently uncovered an interview with the late David Davies featured in The St Helens Reporter dated January 2000 titled ‘Why I’m proud to be ‘your’ estate agent. He stated that the thing he loved most about his job was the rewarding feeling when a past client comes back time after time with one couple, in particular, that had sold seven houses through David – they thought of him as ‘their’ estate agent – ‘I’m proud of that’ he stated at the time.

This is something we still pride ourselves on and put our personal service at the forefront of everything that we do, and David continues to inspire us every day.

With an ever-expanding business the Baldwin St office quickly relocated to a more central town location Barrow St, with a satellite office in Greene’s Road in Whiston and later a second office in Rainford. Where we continue to trade today.

Around 1991 David Davies Estate Agent Ltd was bought by a national building society ‘Birmingham Midshires’ where David ran their North West arm of the business for some 3-4 years.

In 1997 David re launched David Davies Estate Agent Ltd and grew to have 4 offices in total around St Helens, Hardshaw Street town centre, Billinge Main Street, Rainford Church Road and a satellite office in Fingerpost.

With a large team of dedicated local staff the Estate Agency grew to carrying its own Lettings Department with dedicated staff, Mortgage Facilities, Surveys and Commercial Departments.

In 2008 David’s wife Paula Davies joined the front of house team where David and Paula quickly became a powerful team carrying the business through the next 12 years.

Exciting Future

In October 2020 The Mikhail Hotel and Leisure Group announced an exciting new partnership in the takeover of David Davies Sales & Lettings Agent. Andrew Mikhail, chairman of MHALG, says of the acquisition:

"I am very excited to have bought such a prestigious business in St Helens and keeping Paula involved in the business was crucial to me. Paula was David’s rock both within and outside of the business for the last 21 years until his untimely death last year.

“I got to know David and Paula extremely well in the later years as I used their services and was so impressed with the way that they conducted the business and it was such an easy decision to make the purchase.

When we were completing our due diligence, what impressed me most was the sheer volume of lettings that they manage across the region, together with how efficiently they ran them for the landlords. The professionalism and work ethic of the sales team to get sales over the line also spoke volumes."
