Living Local was created by Emma Mansell in 2015 with the sole purpose of providing customers with a fantastic home moving experience. Whether customers are buying or renting, Living Local can provide bespoke services to cater for all needs. Our staff all live locally and between us, we have more than 30 years of estate agency experience. We have two offices, one in the heart of Winlaton village and the other on the main street in Dunston.

Blaydon has undergone many improvements in recent years with the addition of a large Morrison’s, Costa, Domino’s and Subway to the shopping precinct. Blaydon also hosts train and bus connections to Newcastle and beyond. The area has become highly attractive to buyers and tenants from outside of the area who see all of the fantastic facilities on offer. The beautiful Derwent Walk Country Park, Shibdon Pond Nature Reserve and Keelman’s Way cycle route are all easily accessible if you like the great outdoors.

Dunston is highly popular with people who work at the Metro Centre due to its close proximity, as well as those who work in Newcastle due to abundant transport links and easy access to the A1 Western Bypass. Having seen a period of regeneration in recent years, Dunston is becoming more and more popular with affordable homes for first time buyers and good rental returns for investors.

Living Local are proudly independent and value every single customer, so whether you need help with selling, renting, mortgage/financial services or conveyancing, one of our experienced team will be delighted to help.
