Bothams Mitchell Slaney is one of the longest established independent estate agents in Chesterfield. The company was founded in 1871 by Mr William Drabble Botham, a butcher and farmer, in the Old Corn Exchange which now forms part of Chesterfield's historic Market Hall. Today, we're located less than 200 yards from our original location.

Nineteen years later in 1890 Ernest Mitchell, who practised as a local auctioneer and valuer on Glumangate in Chesterfield, founded rival property management firm Mitchell & Slaney.

Fast forward more than 100 years, and on 1st November 2000 the large estate agency practice of WD Botham & Sons and the property management practice of Mitchell & Slaney, combined to form what you know us as today - Bothams Mitchell Slaney.

The combining of the two businesses created far more than an estate agency, it created an independent multi-discipline firm specialising in:

  • Residential sales and valuation
  • Residential letting and property management
  • Commercial property sales, valuation and management
  • Professional valuation services and RICS surveys

Times have changed during the last 140 years, but our commitment to the area, customer service and delivering a professional service tailored to our clients' needs remains at the forefront of everything we do.
