About Us

Although we are probably best known for selling houses, we are also specialist agents with dedicated teams in residential lettings, commercial sales and lettings, land and new homes.

Who we are

Our family-run business started in Worthing on 13th May 1991. Back then, a young Mike Jones with no business experience and little estate agent knowledge decided to throw himself in at the deep-end and learn along the way.

Today, we have six branches across in Worthing, Lancing, Rustington, Goring, Findon, and Ferring – and a sister company Brand Vaughan based in East Sussex, which offer Sales, Lettings, New Homes and Commercial services.

Although we’ve grown, our customers have, and always will be, at the heart of everything we do. Providing you with a professional and personal service is just as important to us today as it was in ’91.

We are your local property experts.

Our future

The Michael Jones Story

Three decades on, and we remain a local, friendly high-street business and one of the largest independent estate agents in the South East – proudly serving tens of thousands of customers across West Sussex and into Hove.

“I’m keen to continue to grow to meet our client’s needs but also to preserve the company’s DNA and keep everything personal and family-run – it’s so important. Our heritage and traditions are something we’re all very proud of, and we know they’re something we will always stay true to.”

    Being first time buyers, we were full of questions. Michael Jones couldn’t have been more helpful and everyone we dealt with along the way were great, prompt and professional.A special shout out to Jane who worked with us for the longest … More part of the process; she was amazingly helpful, patient, friendly and a brilliant person to have helping you through this. We are settling in now and just want to say thank you!We would recommend.

    I sold my property through Michael Jones & Bacon in Lancing. I found them professional, thorough and very competent to the point that they did more work than my solicitor especially James Adams. I would also like to mention Oliver Strotten … More and Gary Evans for their professionalism. Thanks a lot for your great work.

    We viewed quite a few properties with Michael Jones & Bacon until we found our home. Everyone had great customer service and were really helpful. Although, the star of the show was James! He was friendly, clear and spoke through every … More step with us! He’s been fantastic!! Would definitely recommend.
