The best marketing

Perfectly suited for a modern life.

We’re in a digital age and so we need to take a digital-first approach. Almost all property searches start on online, with well over half of these originating from a mobile device, so it's important to get this right.

We’ve made sure that we are well ahead of the game as we’ve pioneered and embraced mobile technology. Afterall, if you don’t have a mobile solution, you won’t reach the largest possible audience. 

Reach people across devices

Your listing exactly where buyers will see it

We'll feature your listing on the top 4 property websites - Rightmove, Zoopla, Primelocation and On The Market to maximise your chances of finding a buyer.

After all, to achieve the best price you need to reach the biggest audience.


We use featured properties

Increase enquiries with up to 26% more property views!*

With featured properties, we'll ensure that your property stands out from the rest. After all, millions of properties competing against each other on Rightmove. Featured properties will give you the edge that you need to secure that buyer.

Boost by up to 26%.

Your Needs
Every Property

Has every property you like now off the market?

It's no exaggeration that these days homes are going so fast and sometimes they won't even be listed online.

At Douglas Allen, we can show you what is currently for sale and, more importantly, what’s about to come on to the market over the next few weeks. 

We’ll even hit the streets and search for you if you'd like us to. Nothing is too much trouble.

  • We’ll call you immediately.
  • Email & text (mobile-friendly) or, if you prefer, we can send something out in the post.
