Cheffins, founded in 1825, is a leading firm of estate agents and auctioneers. In 2018 Cheffins embarked on a rebrand and part of the brief was the planning, design and development of a new website. Isle were selected to deliver this project based on our strong creative and technical skills. The new Cheffins website is visual, usable and highly functional.


  • Website design & user experience planning
  • Content management system
  • Numerous technical integrations
  • Search optimisation


Effective property searches

Our team used the Google Maps API to provide very accurate location searches. We mapped the boundaries of all the villages, towns and cities within the Cheffins catchment area to ensure properties in remote and rural areas were returned.


The website displays auction catalogues for all 3 auction departments - Machinery, Fine Art and Property. Each auction is integrated with a different provider. The Fine Art department contains a range of functionality including the ability to leave commission bids prior to the sale, to watch auctions live, to bid live and also to pay online for purchases after the sale.

Sharon Hamilton, Marketing Director at Cheffins commented... "We are thrilled with our new website. The team at Isle handled the project in a professional, creative and fun way. They have significantly improved the overall look and feel of the site and our new brand has been applied brilliantly. The user journey has been simplified and the website has received many positive comments from clients old and new."
