    About Arden
    • paragraph

      Arden Estates was formed in 2010, with the aim of setting new standards in all areas of the way an Estate Agent operates.

      We are proud to be leading the way in each town in which we operate. We believe that by focusing on what our customers actually want, and what is right for them, we can build a loyal and committed relationship.

      By investing and embracing all that has changed in our world in recent times, we never stop trying and testing new marketing methods.

      Our in-house marketing team are constantly researching new methods and ways to further promote your property in this technically driven new age.

      If something new will increase our service level to you by just 1%, then we will incorporate it, as customer satisfaction is crucial to our success.

      It's these critical 1%s that make the difference. These days, people seem to reduce the price of a house as if it isn't real money. However, we believe that the extra services and the multimedia advertising we buy for you is the reason we achieve such a high percentage of your asking prices.

      We won't just advertise your property on the internet and wait for the phone to ring, we provide a comprehensive service with an experienced team of friendly people working for you constantly and proactively to achieve your goal.

      You want your property to stand out from the crowd to give people a reason to view it.

      We don't make false claims or pretend to be something that we're not; if you want confirmation about how good we are, what we're all about and why we are different, then ask one of our clients or call us for an informal chat ...we'd love to hear from you.

      Conveyancing

      We have relationships with some of the best Solicitors around, and can offer recommendations and advice if required.

    Information for potential buyers
    • paragraph

      Getting Started...
      Whether you're a first time buyer, a home mover or a landlord you'll need to know what your budget is and how much money you can borrow. We can help you with this by setting up a consultation with one of our fully qualified independent Mortgage Advisors, where you'll soon know how much you can afford and what the monthly payments will be. Our advisors will also provide you with what's called an 'Agreement in Principle' certificate. You'll need this as proof that you can obtain a mortgage to show other estate agents before they will accept an offer from you.
    • paragraph

      Viewings
      Now that you know how much you can borrow and you've got your proof of mortgage, you can start viewing properties. You need to know which areas you want to live in, how many bedrooms you need, your maximum budget and which type of property you want. We will enter this into our system and you'll be kept constantly updated with our latest properties via text, email and phone.
    • paragraph

      Make an Offer
      Once you've found your dream property, you'll need to make an official offer through our sales negotiators.
    • paragraph

      Choose a Solicitor
      You will need to instruct a solicitor to carry out conveyancing. We can arrange for our recommended solicitors to take care of the sales progression. We only work with like-minded, forward thinking solicitors, so you can feel rest assured that you'll be in safe hands with a competitively priced and efficient service.
    • paragraph

      Apply For Your Mortgage

      Now that you've got an offer accepted on the property you wish to purchase, it is imperative that we apply for your mortgage as soon as possible to avoid unnecessary delays. It can all be done within an hour and generally you'll need the following proofs:

      -Photographic ID & Proof of Address
      -3 Months Pay Slips or 2 Year Accounts
      -Proof of Deposit

    • paragraph

      Sales Progression
      Y our file will be assigned to one of our sales progression team who will endeavour to look after your every need through the buying process. They will advise you and negotiate on your behalf throughout this process, keeping you informed every step of the way.
    • paragraph

      Valuation or Survey
      When the mortgage company has approved the initial mortgage application, they will instruct a survey for Mortgage purposes, to ascertain the condition and value of the property. Your chosen lender will contact us to arrange the inspection, and if everything is satisfactory, you can expect your mortgage offer to follow shortly after.
    • paragraph

      Mortgage Offer
      Following the successful completion of the survey, your offer will be produced and sent out to you and your solicitor.
    • paragraph

      Signing of Contracts
      Once the solicitors have received all the information requested, prior to exchange of contracts, both sellers and purchasers will be sent the contract to be signed in readiness for the exchange.
    • paragraph

      Exchange of Contracts
      Once everybody in the chain has signed the contracts and solicitors have received everything needed, they will then instruct a formal exchange of contracts. All parties need to agree on a completion date and then the solicitors can exchange on the property, which means everything is legally binding.
    • paragraph

      Completion
      This is the big day when all parties in the chain move. The keys will only be released once the transferred funds have reached the sellers solicitors (usually around midday). As estate agents, we often hold keys to the property prior to completion and we can only release these once we have had confirmation from the solicitors that the chain has completed.

      Sharon Whitehead, Director

      I have lived in Gloucestershire all of my life, and have a very extensive knowledge of Gloucestershire, and in particular The Forest of Dean and its surrounding areas.

      From when I left college in 1982, I have always been involved in sales and specialised in customer care and attention to detail. I have always known that one day I would be involved in the Estate Agency world.

      Within Arden Estates I am a Director and Branch Manager of the Lydney Branch, working with my husband Chris, who is also a Director and his field is Mortgages, Equity Release, Protection, etc.

      In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family & friends, cooking, gardening & exercising.

      Chris Whitehead, Director

      I lived in Worcestershire most of my life and moved to Lydney in 2001. For a number of years, I worked in the printing industry where I was involved in running a multi-million-pound turnover plc.

      In 2005, I decided to do something totally different and studied to become a Financial Adviser where I specialise in Equity Release and Mortgages.

      I am married to Sharon (also in the Lydney Office) and between us, we have four great kids. In my spare time, I like to spend time with family & friends, walk my dog Ellie, I also like to read and cook.

      Lucy Powell, Branch Lettings Manager

      I have lived in the Forest of Dean for all of my life as well as working in Gloucestershire and Wales, so I have a broad understanding of the area.

      When I finished my A-Levels in 2010, I decided to take a position in administration where I occasionally worked in Sales, designing and selling portable buildings.

      As much as I enjoyed this, I always felt that I wanted to do more, so I started working within the mortgage industry before I became involved with Arden Estate Agents in 2013, which I absolutely love!

      When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading and shopping.

      Testimonials from Sellers

      • Seller Testimonial

        No hesitation in recommending Arden

        Professional transaction

         "I am sitting in our new home and reflecting over the previous few months. We would like to express our sincere thanks for the professional service you and your team exhibited in selling our house. It was "hassle free" and as you vetted the prospective buyers, we were not inundated with viewers that were not in a position to complete. Once again our heartfelt thanks and we have no hesitation in recommending Arden Estate Agents for buying and selling services." - Richard & Mary Marle (February 2017)

      • Seller Testimonial

        Thoroughly professional service

        Excellent

         "Arden Estates were excellent and kept us very well informed at every stage of our house sale. Potential purchasers were diligently followed up by the Lydney office and every member of the team provided us with a friendly, but at the same time, thoroughly professional service. Completion was treated in the same way which made that sometimes difficult time flow smoothly. Many thanks to everyone and we have no hesitation in recommending Arden's Estates." - Martin & Frances Fitzgibbon (March 2017)

      • Seller Testimonial

        The team went above and beyond

        Absolutely excellent from start to finish

         "I cannot recommend Arden enough. From first point of contact to arrange a valuation to the day of completion, we received excellent and consistent service. I truly believe Sharon, Lucinda and Lucy went out of their way to provide the most exceptional and easy sale of our house. The team went above and beyond to make our sale as painless as possible, providing full updates and reports before we'd even thought to request any. Their communication, friendliness, professionalism and knowledge never waivered. I would have absolutely no hesitation in insisting that friends and family used Arden as their estate agent and in fact we received their details on recommendation from a friend who had used them. Estate agents do I believe have a rather bad reputation, but Arden expelled all of these fears. It has been a pleasure to deal with Arden from start to finish and we are most grateful for their expertise in selling our house super-speedily." - Richard Baker & Amanda Price (May 2017)

      Testimonials from Buyers

      • Buyer Testimonial

        Friendly, approachable and efficient

        Excellent Estate Agents

        "We recently purchased a property through Arden Estate Agents and were very impressed with their professionalism and friendliness throughout the process. Whilst you make a purchase based on the property itself and not the Estate Agent, we were so pleased to have been dealing with Arden. The team, namely Sharon & Lucinda were friendly, approachable and efficient with all our requests and made the move to a new area & new house really exciting for us. We're staying put for a while, but when we do come to sell we will not look to go with anyone else." - Daniel Fowler & Sophia Tranter (May 2017)

      • Buyer Testimonial

        Quick in communicating

        Helpful and Quick

        "We found Sharon of Arden Estates very helpful and knowledgeable on the region we were looking for a new house in, and were delighted when she offered us a property that seemed to tick many of our requirements demonstrating that the agency had really paid attention to what we were looking for. Dealing with Arden Estates was an easy experience and we found them to be quick in communicating, always keeping us updated of how things were progressing and making sure we had all the information we needed." - James & Victoria Erskine (February 2017)

      • Buyer Testimonial

        We realised we couldn't have done better

        A harrowing experience made bearable by true professionals....

        "Trying to find a Bungalow was never going to be easy, and finding one which would accommodate many years of accumulating, plus taking the place of a 3 bed detached house made the task much more demanding. Arden Estates Lydney were recommended to us, and from the first contact we realised we couldn't have done better. Thanks to Sharon and team efficiency was obvious at the outset, and when you add in professionalism and the ability to deal with people who are going through the worst experience of their lives, that takes a skill and understanding not always available. We'd rather not move again, but if it did happen again we would not hesitate to contact Sharon, Lucinda or Lucy, and we will be very happy to recommend Arden to anyone who needs to move house." - Brian and Maureen Howard (April 2017)
