We’re not cluttering the high street
We’re a community-centric property agency serving Sheen, Barnes, Mortlake and Putney.
With the web and our discreet office in the heart of Sheen, we do not need a shop. This means there isn’t yet another agency on the high street.
Let’s keep our shops free for independent businesses that make our villages vibrant and attractive.
Leaving our mark
Sheen and Barnes is our neighbourhood. We’re fiercely proud to call it home. We live, work, school and socialise here. We also like to give something back to support all the people that make it so great.
Sceon+Berne will donate £250 on each and every sale to a local school, nursery or charity of your choice.
This is just one of the many ways we embrace the spirit of the local community.
Lastly... picture this.
Exceptional service and a price to match.
We charge just 0.75% plus VAT (for sole or multiple agency) to sell your home.
As a boutique agency with no high street shop we can pass this saving directly to the people who matter... you.
Call us on 020 3621 2000 to take advantage of this great offer.

Sign of the times
Even our site boards are a break from the norm.
Different. It’s what makes us.
We wanted to run a property agency that was demonstrably better than the industry norm.
We recognised all the unnecessary parts of the industry, from the lack of true client care to the short-term-gain mentality, and replaced this with an utterly open, caring approach and an unrivalled level of service delivered with a personal touch. The way it should be.
Every agency talks about being local. This wasn’t enough for us. We wanted to be totally embedded in the local community. That’s why we set up our unique referral network and our donation scheme to support our local communities of SW13 & SW14.
We’re never afraid of being different, it’s what drives us to be better. Like the posts on our site boards which are 100% recycled. As far as we know, this is a first for the industry. So if you’re looking for a property agency that’s different, we’d love to speak to you.
Closer to home
Sceon and Berne are the earliest known names for Sheen and Barnes, as recorded in the Domesday Book. This perfectly reflects our own local roots.
The etymology of our name also bears relevance: Sceon comes from the old English word for shelter, while Berne means barn or storehouse.
Post, consumer waste
Our site board posts are 100% recycled. Made in the UK, the waste plastic used comes from the usual recycling bin contents collected from homes and businesses all over Britain.
Their maintenance free qualities make them an ideal substitute for wood, but with a low carbon footprint. We think they look pretty good too.

Word on the street
We are passionate about the work we do and the personal service we provide. Put simply, we wouldn't be doing our jobs properly if our customers didn't speak highly of us.
Here's what they say...
"Sceon & Berne were brilliant and helped us sell during one of the trickiest times in the market. Having had a couple of false starts with other local agents, we instinctively liked David's honesty and local knowledge from the first time we met him and as time went on we couldn't have been more correct. We definitely wouldn't have sold so well (asking price despite a terrible market) and we couldn't recommend Sceon & Berne highly enough."
DOLLY & ROB, SW14
"A fantastic agent. He provided us with constant updates and feedback which is essential in a difficult market and worked tirelessly and with endless positivity to achieve a sale for us in very difficult circumstances. I would highly recommend. He was instrumental in making our sale happen by pushing the solicitors every step of the way we cannot recommend him highly enough. Having been an agent in the area myself I had high expectations and David exceeded these."
SUSANNAH & TIM, MORTLAKE
"In a turbulent market, David provided a calm and most professional approach to selling our house. His local knowledge and overriding dedication to achieve results are just two things to be admired about the service provided."
DAN & MADDY, EAST SHEEN
"From the moment I met David it was clear that he was different from the usual estate agent. He took time to understand what was really important to me. He genuinely cared that both parties were happy."
"David's communication is first class and he has an outstanding local knowledge and understanding of the property market. A boutique agency, excellent service-with-a-smile and results!"
PAUL & CLARE, EAST SHEEN
"We were in the middle of an extraordinary complicated five-link chain. Without question this would have fallen apart but for David's tenacity, energy, creativity and his enhanced people skills. We cannot recommend him highly enough."
SIMON & IRENE, EAST SHEEN
"Being a 'niche' agent, David stands tall amongst his competitors, because he really cares. I would whole heartily recommend David and his team to any of my friends and family."
ROBBIE & SARAH, SW14
"We would like to thank David and Fiona for their very hands-on approach. They were always helpful, pro-active and kept us fully up-to-date on progress up and down the chain."
MELANIE & NIGEL, EAST SHEEN
"We decided to use David due to his community-centric approach and long standing experience in the local area. I have no doubt Sceon+Berne will do very well as a local business."
LOUISE & PIERS, MORTLAKE
"Sceon+Berne were a breath of fresh air compared to the rest of the market in their consultative and pragmatic approach."
PAUL & LAURA, EAST SHEEN
Let's make lettings better
We're really proud of the lettings service we provide.
After listening to our customers, we realised it's not always about what you can add to a business but also what you take away.
That's why we've removed all the renewal fees when letting your property.
If you want to find out more about our game-changing lettings service, please call Sarah on 020 3621 2000.
