Throughout the preparatory process we aim to be as unobtrusive as possible since we are aware that for most people selling their property is a major decision and sometimes a sensitive issue. Therefore, although we are ready to activate matters speedily, we also temper the pace of the process to suit the Vendor.

We permanently hold the advertising space on the back page and use this to feature a different property each month. In addition we advertise on at least two internal pages each month. This enables us to devote particular attention to individual properties. We advertise in national newspapers where appropriate, and regularly sponsor local exhibitions, charities and events.
We provide accompanied viewings by experienced staff – with access and appointment times to suit our vendors. We provide regular feedback and stay in close touch with our vendors with regard to their property and the conditions of the market.

We ask for confirmation of their ability to purchase from banks, accountants, financial advisors or mortgage brokers. Our intention is to do as much as possible to negotiate, on your behalf, a sound sale at the best possible price for you.
