We eschew the unimaginative “blanket” method practised by traditional high street agents and the new breed of DIY online offerings. Our model is based around us as individuals handling every aspect of the sale; we lead all the viewings ourselves, selling not only the property itself but the area and its lifestyle. After all we live locally, we socialise here, our children have been schooled here – we love it here ourselves.
We invest many, many hours getting to know and listening to our buyers. We know this investment in our time is well spent – we can cherry pick the best buyers, we can match them to individual properties more effectively, we can sell “off market” to them if you want a discreet sale and in many instances we get viewings and sell them houses outside their online search criteria. The winners of course are our clients.
We have established our reputation as the region's “go-to“ agent for individual and quality houses on merit and recommendation – no gimmicks, clichés or bluster. We trust in our philosophy at the heart of this which is to create stylish, beautifully taken photos and videos.
Once a sale is agreed, the work continues. We all know that even with the best will in the world complications can arise; problems in a chain, legal issues, tricky mortgage companies – we have been there many, many times before and are always on hand to overcome obstacles and provide guidance and reassurance.
Our model is based around us as individuals; Holly is the lynchpin of the whole operation and has a small, close-knit team to help. She knows her landlords, their properties and the local area inside out. This is a business built on reputation and recommendation – our clients trust us to do the very best we can for them.
We offer a tailor-made service to landlords, whether they want an arrangement that is fully managed, let only or a combination of the two. Whatever service you choose, we will find the tenant, fully reference them, produce the tenancy agreement, arrange to receive and register the security deposit and prepare a detailed inventory and schedule of condition before the tenancy begins.
A successful tenancy is driven by quality tenants and a crucial part of finding the right tenant is meeting them and qualifying them fully before a tenancy is offered. We work hard from the moment we know a property is available to line up suitable prospective tenants and so minimise any void periods.
Regular management inspections are carried out on fully managed properties and feedback is given to landlords to advise them of any work needed to maintain the quality of the property. Should any problems arise, we are quick to arrange for any necessary maintenance to be carried out. This also keeps our tenants happy, contributing to longer tenancies which in turn provides a better return for landlords.
