Sales


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


 

We provide a professional service for landlords and tenants dealing with the letting of residential properties from one bedroom apartments to substantial detached family homes. As a well known village agent for over 30 years we have a wealth of experience and understanding of the requirements of our landlords and tenants. Our expert knowledge of matching criteria associated with the village and surrounding districts ensures a tenancy is established in the best interest of all parties. We build well forged relationships with tenants with the result that many are ongoing renewals.
