About Us


Harrington Brown was established as an independent Estate Agency in 2001 and set up its office on Front Street, right in the heart of Shotley Bridge Village. 


Over the years, Harrington Brown has helped thousands of people sell or buy their new home in and around the local areas of Consett in Co Durham and across the river into neighbouring Northumberland.


At the beginning of 2021, on its 20th Anniversary, Harrington Brown started a new chapter with a change of ownership and with it, rebranding for a fresh new look, a more modern platform for an estate agency and substantial investment in new marketing tools and property management software, all to better reflect the dedication to our clients and customers’ needs and expectations.


Harrington Brown remains a small and local independent business, ran by a local team of property professionals dedicated to offering the very best level of service.  Buying or selling a property is generally one of the biggest financial commitments you will make, we aim to guide you all the way through the process to ensure it is made as stress free as possible for you. 


We always adhere to the strict codes of conduct and are members of the Property Redress Scheme.


We are also proud that in the short time since our rebranding and investment, we have been awarded a GetAgent ‘Top performer award’ for the DH8 area which means we are achieving the best possible prices and in quickest time frames compared to the larger, more corporate or franchised agents in our area.


Owned and managed by myself, Jennifer Hartburn, I am directly involved with all aspects and day to day running of the business, I personally carry out all valuations and will carry out the majority of accompanied viewings to really ensure your home is staged and sold in the best possible way.


Our small team also means that you will be dealing directly with us, ‘Your Local Property Expert’.

Our experts undertake regular training to ensure they are up to date with best practice and complex legislative changes, so they can offer you the best advice.
