About Us

The infamous Clifford Smith, the name which local people will recognise.  The man himself, one man, who returned from war to his home town of Burnley, establishing a small Solicitors practice in 1928, which was located just off Manchester Road.  The practice, continuing to provide professional services in various incarnations over the years, has built a reputation earning the respect of clients and colleagues.  The legal practice continues today, able to specialise in the sale and purchase of property (Conveyancing).  When you deal with transactions between buyers and sellers on a day to day basis, you are right to expect we have become very good at what we do.

In September 1989, the then partners had seen an innovative opportunity which made sense.  Under the banner 'Solicitors Sell Houses' the practice looked to take advantage of the wealth of experience already within the business and offer an Estate Agency arm, opening its doors in a more prominent position, on Manchester Road in September 1989.  Whilst we could never profess that buying and selling property is guaranteed completely hassle free, we believe that one professional practice should handle the transaction from start to finish.  The concept of instructing one agent to manage the sale of your property, from advising on price, to concluding the contract, remains as fresh and unique today as it did over twenty years ago.  Indeed, why don't all Estate Agents do business this way!

The success story continues more recently, in 2012 when the practice 'evolved' to become 'Clifford Smith Sutcliffe' under the new ownership of Smith Sutcliffe, another name synonymous with the town.  Honest, professional and reliable, these may not be values you generally associate with your average Estate Agent, but we remain the local success story built on this ethos with long standing clients throughout the Burnley and Pendle area.
