Our aims are simple
- To achieve the best possible price and provide our clients with an unrivalled service.
- To consistently maintain our excellent reputation and high standards of business practice
- To manage clients expectations and needs with sound realistic advice.
- To understand how moving home can be one of life’s more challenging experiences.
As a company we like to do things a little differently from your regular corporate or online agent. It is our firmly held belief that the best way to buy, sell or let a property is with an experienced licensed independent estate agent who knows that the internet advert is just the tip of the iceberg. Our services have only just begun once we have introduced a client to a property.
We pride ourselves on negotiating the right price with the best possible buyer for you and your circumstances. We are extremely ‘hands on’ in managing the sale right through to the exchange of contracts and ultimately completion.
From verifying and having a clear view on the intended purchasers finance arrangements; to managing a chain of transactions and co-ordinating with other agents and solicitors, we have the knowledge and experience to ensure the transaction runs smoothly and you are kept appraised every step of the way.
We aim to provide a highly personal and professional service for all our clients, backed by the latest in modern technology. Our office is staffed by friendly, knowledgeable and mature people with many years of experience in the industry, all of whom live locally. We are therefore able to give a comprehensive and balanced service to all our customers.

The Lettings Procedure
