Comment on this story on the

This year has been typified by low stock levels yet continuing high demand. The latter is not a surprise considering the area we live in. Where else do you get excellent local schools, convenient transport links and excellent amenities including the river and the park/commons?

Our major successes this year have undoubtedly been in the family housing market. Nothing stays around too long. In the last month we have agreed sales on two houses occupying the ever-popular ‘river roads’. Given the national press and current economic outlook the demand for these houses has been truly impressive and certainly bucks the national trend of doom and gloom. One of these properties went to a sealed bids process and so was sold for over the asking price within a week. The other got the asking price on the first day!

Such impressive turnarounds are our forte and the philosophy behind our agency is that your time is precious so we won’t waste it. The reason for this focus on time is because we have listened to our clients and responded accordingly.

“We invested heavily in market research recently and the overwhelming response was that most agents were a pest and very unskilled. This led to many potential buyers and sellers losing faith with the service they would receive. As a team we all got together and came up with our new ethos not to waste our clients time. Simple procedures have been put in place so we can monitor how efficient we are and of course we are always looking to improve this. You will never be waiting for us at an appointment, we are also very specific on how often we contact you and actually do what you ask us to. If you want to just receive emails we do not constantly call you, if you are desperate for a property we will call you straight away. It is the little things in this industry that make a difference. Together with a well trained team and inspiring vision we believe we can offer you a vastly improved selling and buying experience ” Jonathan Mills (Managing Director)

This year we are also focusing on our involvement within the locality. If you know of a good cause that we can support then please contact us. We all live locally and therefore truly care about what happens at the end of your road as it is just round the corner from our own home!
