      ENERGY PERFORMANCE CERTIFICATES (EPC)
      image cannot be displayed

      EPCs were introduced by the European Parliament to encourage home owners and tenants to improve the energy efficiency of their properties and reduce their carbon footprint. The EPC is produced by a Domestic Energy Assessor, who visits the property to collect certain information, which is then used to produce the report. This contains a colour-coded graph similar to those found on washing machines etc showing how energy efficient the property is and what it's environmental impact is. The report also lists any changes that can be made to the property to improve its rating.

       Adrians use independent and local Domestic Energy Assessors which means the EPC can be completed very quickly, thus ensuring there is no delay in putting your property on the market. EPCs are also required for rented properties and have to be provided by landlords re-letting their property. Having our own Energy Assessor also means that any properties let through Adrians can be re-let quickly.

      Nigel Jessup M.N.A.E.A  Director

      Nigel started his agency career in 1986 working for a corporate company in Billericay and after some years experience joined a large independent agent in 1993 as a senior negotiator. He was soon promoted to Branch Manager successfully running a large office in Chelmsford until 2013.

      In 2013 having previously worked together in the same office he teamed up with his now co director Ray Cline and acquired ADRIANS from the retiring partners.

      "I have worked and lived in Chelmsford for the last 15 years, I know the area extremely well and I am very passionate about the industry and truly believe that giving people the right advice and support will get the best results. Adrians have a reputation built on trust and recommendation and my goal is to continue the traditional core values of good honest estate agency coupled with new technology and a modern approach."

      Ray Cline M.N.A.E.A  Director

      Ray has been in estate agency for over 25 years, starting his career with a large corporate estate agent quickly gaining promotion managing local branches. In 2000 Ray joined an independent agency to run their Chelmsford Branch and in more recent years held a Regional Managers position responsible for six branches North Essex Branches including Chelmsford.

      2013 presented the opportunity to apply all this experience to running his own agency when the previous owners of Adrians retired.

      "I have for over 10 years been on the Essex Branch Committee for the National Association of Estate Agents which is our governing body and have been proactive with my views on legislation and training young people. Choosing the right agent is an important decision as you will be working with that agent for at least a couple of months so you need to be sure it's an agent that will conduct their day to day business in a trustworthy, professional manner. It's so important to do the job the right way and to a high standard of service, with feedback and communication being imperative. The Adrians history and reputation is something we are proud of and will continue to protect and develop."

      Gary Ketley - Residential Sales Manager

      Gary has been at Adrians in Chelmsford for 30 years and is the perfect example of an agent that people come back to time after time with their property needs. Gary has had the pleasure of helping people with their move two or three times over as their own lives have changed and they have moved home to suit their different needs. This lengthy time working and living locally provides an exceptional knowledge of the area which qualifies Gary to give accurate and in depth advice to sellers and informative direction to potential buyers.

      "I am a calm and friendly person driven by my attention to detail in both the contact with my clients and the presentation of our property details - good photography is essential both for the brochure and internet portals where bad presentation could simply cost the seller the chance to attract the right buyer. Modern technology is also a keen interest of mine and social media platforms are an essential part of communication to both potential buyers and sellers. I treat people the way I would like to be treated myself and I am proud of the Adrians reputation having been part of the business for so long."

      Testimonials from Sellers

      • Seller Testimonial

        first point of excellence
        A very helpful company from start to finish! The first point of excellence: Rather than being allocated one person to deal with our sale, the whole office was aware of the property and the current state of the sale. This meant that if one of the advisors was unavailable, someone else could give the required information/update. Second point of excellence: The market valuation was realistic and we sstc very quickly with their assistance. The third point: The sales particulars were well documented and they showed some great images, which, I'm certain assisted in the quick sale. Finally: Adrians were courteous, professional and friendly on all occasions. From our experience, I would highly recommend Adrians Estate Agents to anyone else selling in the Chelmsford area. (Ian P)
      • Seller Testimonial

        anyone at Adrians can deal with queries
        As far as estate agents go, I don't honestly think you could get a better service from what I've experienced with Adrians. I have used them now twice to buy and sell and on both occasions the service has been fantastic. On my recent sale, which took the best part of 5 months and 3 buyers, Adrians proved essential and saved me so much time and effort had I had to do the chasing myself. They work efficiently and effectively soliciting current and accurate updates up and down the chain, and unlike some agents anyone at Adrians, be that Rian, James, Gary or Ray, can deal with queries to ensure prompt continuity. Competitively priced too I highly recommend giving them a call. (Daniel O)
      • Seller Testimonial

        efficient and friendly without ever being pushy
        Putting my parents' property on the rental market when living elsewhere could have been complicated, but we were recommended Adrians by neighbours and have been delighted with the service. Meetings and phone calls were efficient and friendly without ever being pushy, and valuations and prospective tenants were provided quickly. When we eventually sell the property we will definitely use them again; I have no hesitation in recommending them. (Julie T)
      • Seller Testimonial

         extensive knowledge of the local property market
        My brother and myself first contacted Gary regarding the probate valuation on our father's property. He was both helpful and considerate so when we decided to explore the idea of renting the property he was our first point of call. Throughout that process he kept us up to date with progress on a regular basis and was able to offer advice and answer our questions. Viewings came thick and fast and his help was invaluable at that time. We have been very impressed by Gary's extensive knowledge of the local property market and his willingness to go the extra mile in making sure we were happy with Adrian's service. I would have no problem in recommending Adrians to any one who is considering either selling or renting out a property. (Christoper W)
      • Seller Testimonial

        gave valuable advice and were a pleasure
        The guys at ADRIANS were fabulous. They worked for me, kept me in the loop at all times. Moving is a stressful process but they took that all away from me in the handling of my purchase and sale. They gave valuable advice and were a pleasure to do business with. I can't recommend them highly enough. If you are selling your house you would be crazy to go with anyone else. (Yvette D)
      • Seller Testimonial

        everyone was always willing to help
        We sold and purchased our new property dealing with Ray at Adrians. I would like to say a very very big thank you for all your support, help and advice with both and also all the rest of the staff in your office for always being so professional everyone was always willing to help and happy to return calls. Once again a very big thank you. (Pauline M)
      • Seller Testimonial

        the house was sold within a week
        Although my property (in Billericay) was out of the usual catchment area for Adrians Estate Agents, this did not cause any problems at all. My property was listed within 24 hours, with pictures and all viewing were accompanied by an experienced member of the team. The house was sold within a week and whilst the very long chain meant completion took a few months, I was impressed with the level of communication throughout. (Steve L)
      • Seller Testimonial

        recommend over and over again
        From the point of sale to completion all the work was carried out by the agent and if the person you are dealing with is not there the others in the office just take over so there is no delays, very pleased and will not hesitate to recommend over and over again. (Kevin S)
      • Seller Testimonial

        family have used Adrians several times
        My family has used Adrians several times over the past years and have always been satisfied. We have always received a very friendly helpful service from whichever member of the team we have dealt with. (Michael K)

      Testimonials from Buyers

      • Buyer Testimonial

        wish we had instructed Adrians to sell our house
        We would like to thank Rian for helping us with our Bungalow purchase, which did not turn out quite as straight forward as we would have liked it to be. He listened patiently to our concerns and was very professional in dealing with them. He was calm and dealt with everything he said he would. He has made the whole process a lot easier Always very polite and knew what he was talking about. We were very impressed and wished we had instructed Adrians to sell our house. Thank you for all your help. (Cheryl H)
      • Buyer Testimonial

        best experience of dealing with an estate agent
        We recently used Adrians for our house purchase. The service we received from James Tayler in particular and all other members of the team was professional, courteous and efficient. Communication throughout the purchase was excellent. All our queries were dealt with quickly and effectively, there was never any need to chase for responses to phone calls or emails. We have bought and sold several properties throughout the UK and without doubt this was the best experience of dealing with an estate agent. (J J)
      • Buyer Testimonial

        Adrians were excellent
        When my partner and I recently bought a house, our vendor used Adrians as their Agent, although not working for us we found Adrians were excellent, Keeping us informed all through the buying/selling experience, which was so helpful , making the whole thing a little less stressful than it could have been. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone. (Steve J)
      • Buyer Testimonial

        would highly recommend them to anyone
        We were purchasing our first home, and Adrians have been amazing from start to finish. Staying in contact with us to give us any updates, and arranging for people to go in for quotes on work needed. We even got a new home card and bottle to congratulate us on the completion - we couldn't fault them and would highly recommend them to anyone! Thank you Nigel and the team! (Erika B)
      • Buyer Testimonial

        kept us informed and up to date
        We recently purchased a property through Adrians and have been very pleased with the professionalism of all the staff that we have come across. Everyone we spoke to was friendly and accommodating, dealing with all our queries quickly and efficiently. Our purchase was not quite as straight forward as we hoped but the team at Adrians kept us informed and up to date with progress when needed. They certainly helped a great deal just as things started to slow down to ensure all outstanding items were addressed promptly whilst making sure everyone's individual needs / timing requirements were met. I bombarded Gary, Nigel and James with countless emails and calls but without their help and patience, we would not have completed the purchase when we did. Many thanks again. (Danny W)
