How We Work

Getting Your Brief Right

What period or style do you favour? What type of location would be ideal for your lifestyle? How sensitive are you to issues such as noise and traffic levels? What school requirements do you have? What local amenities do you require? Our first step is always to get an in-depth understanding of your needs. Not just budget and specification details, but more personal considerations too.

We can agree this brief face to face or by phone. An in-depth understanding of your requirements may even enable us to identify suitable properties which you might not otherwise have considered.

Shortlisting and Viewing

Having agreed your brief we conduct a thorough market search. In addition to identifying suitable properties on the open market, we also use our knowledge and contacts to identify any pre-market or private sale opportunities.

We visit all potentially suitable properties, and report back to you on any that may be of genuine interest. We aim to arrive at an initial short list before accompanying you to any viewings you choose to conduct. We discuss the advantages of each property, and take your feedback into account if further searches are necessary.

Negotiating Effectively and Successfully

Once we have found what you are looking for, we aim to secure the property on the best available terms by using our knowledge of current local selling prices and levels of market competition.
