How we achieve the best price compared to online estate agents
We're on the High Street and in your community
This gives us a personal touch and unique access to even more buyers that online agents simply can't achieve.
Online agents are mainly remote, call centre based, and use largely web-based advertising.
Unique competitive selling strategies
We use open houses to create a competitive environment amongst buyers to encourage the best price.
Online agents normally charge extra if they are able to offer these at all - usually meaning a lower sale price.
Local knowledge in your town or village
Our staff are experts in each of their local areas, meaning they understand exactly how the local market works and are able to match the perfect buyer to your property.
Online agents are usually limited to staff covering wide areas.
Proactive matching of sellers like you with the best buyers
Our staff actively seek out the very best buyers for you using our extensive network of buyers, both local and from offices across the South East.
Online agents are mostly reliant on emails from Rightmove before they react.
We are able to meet your potential buyers personally
Our high street presence means we can meet your potential buyers to understand them and their position, allowing us to find the best match for your property and avoid any time wasting.
Online agents have no premises to enable face to face contact, meaning are they are unlikely to meet your viewers.
