    At Berkeleys, we believe that our reputation is paramount; professionalism and traditional service standards are everything. Experience and local knowledge, combined with our energetic and passionate approach to property, have created a specialist agency, providing a first class property service for homeowners, buyers, investors / landlords and tenants throughout Canford Cliffs, Sandbanks, Branksome Park, Lilliput, Lower Parkstone and Whitecliff.

    We love our exclusive and unique coastal home because of the lifestyle benefits

    Berkeleys' office is located in the very heart of Canford Cliffs Village, opposite the car park and close to all the local retail facilities and restaurants. Our double-fronted office has acres of window space to show off properties for sale or for rent, to best advantage 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We combine this flagship office with a fully comprehensive and modern marketing package ensuring your property has the best possible presentation when launched.

    It is not difficult to see why Poole Harbour and the surrounding area is regularly cited as one of the most sought-after places in the country to live. The whole area remains perennially popular with London buyers, as well as those from other parts of the UK who love the relaxed pace of life that the area has to offer and the dramatic coastal and cliff top view of the harbour and the sea, alike.

    On the doorstep are innumerable yacht and sailing clubs, a championship golf course (Parkstone Golf Club) and 7 miles of world-renowned, golden sandy beaches whilst Studland, The Purbecks, The Jurassic Coast, (a World Heritage site), and the New Forest are all within easy reach for cycling and horse riding.

    The area offers great accessibility; with easy access to London via M3, and M27, two growing local airports, Bournemouth and Southampton, (offering domestic and international flights), Bournemouth International Train Station and regular sailings to France.

    How much is my property worth ?

    Whether it is your "primary home", "second home" or an "investment", the value of your property will likely fluctuate due to numerous market conditions. We follow the market closely and analyse situations in detail in order to advise and guide newcomers and experts on pricing, as well as the numerous other issues and nuances of buying and selling; planning, covenants and local practice.

    The media and tabloids are very good at reporting nationwide statistics, but Berkeleys are active and truly effective in our local micro-markets. We can therefore advise you accurately on the how best to market your property in the current local market.

Landlords

    Letting your property is a chance to make the most financially of your home or a property you may have bought as an investment.

    You want a lettings service which not only helps you to find the right tenant at the highest rent but one which can also be trusted to care for your property and handle professionally and diligently those aspects of the tenant relationship that you wish to outsource.

    Berkeleys can find and look after the right tenant using a combination of our knowledge of the local rentals market and our know-how in marketing and property management. All backed-up by first class customer service and care.

  • paragraph

    Our superior market knowledge - at your service

    Knowledge is a critical factor in achieving the best rental yield and we're confident that we understand the local rentals market better than anyone else.

    Our cutting edge is based on the local knowledge of our staff combined with our ability to apply technology in new ways to the property market, building research tools both for our clients and staff.

    Using our custom-built YOUeye tool, we can better judge demand & supply for property in an area, track local valuation trends and pinpoint the right comparable transactions which are so critical to achieving the best yield for you. When marketing properties to potential tenants, it's crucial to be aware of an area's special character and the local nuances which can create differences in the rental rates of two comparable properties only a short distance apart. So, we pioneered the idea of defined 'villages' within an area, allowing future tenants to really explore all that's good about the area surrounding your property.

Tenants 
  • paragraph

    Our tenants have a variety of reasons and requirements for renting.

    Our Canford Cliffs letting agent find that each tenant is unique and as such requires a tailored service. Some choose to rent to get to know an area before purchasing, some prefer to be in a strong cash position when they choose to buy, others have a short term need for quality property.

    Our role also goes beyond showing you properties. We explain your tenant rights for example, prior to renting. We can do this over the phone, via email or in person, in a number of languages, so contact us and we will be happy to help.

    Our experience has taught us that each tenant needs a custom service tailored to their needs and desires. As a result our lettings teams truly understand your requirements and we support our landlords with the responsibilities that come with the tenancy. We understand tenants want a well maintained property with minimal interferences which is why we manage many properties on our landlords' behalf.

    If you are looking for a property all of our lettings experts are ARLA licensed, or currently training to be. We will not waste your time showing you properties that don't match your requirements. We exist to find your ideal property. Email, call or visit us today
