    By combining the best of traditional customer service with the latest techniques in online sales and marketing Chris George The Estate Agent has become the town's market leader in less than 18 months.

    A recent survey by the leading for sale sign analysts, names Chris George as number one on the street. In March more than a quarter of all Sold boards displayed in the town were by Chris George the Estate Agent, putting the company at number one in this long standing measure of success.*

    The survey also concluded that Chris George the Estate Agent has sold more flats, terraced, semi-detached and detached homes than any other estate agent.

    But that's not the whole story, for Chris George the Estate Agent also leads the way when it comes to online marketing, capturing the number one rating in new listings, available stock, click through rate and speed of sales.†

    This means the company not only has a bigger choice of homes in its portfolio but it also takes less time to sell them.

For Chris George it's not just about striking a deal but seeing it through to a conclusion - something that can be a tense and complex business that needs to be handled with tact, diplomacy and patience.

    Two new members of staff have recently joined the company to strengthen the after sales experience - making sure things run smoothly from offer to completion.

    Julie Watson - After Sales Manager
    " If you've ever wondered who takes care of all that happens between making your first offer and completing your sale then the answer is Julie! As after sales manager she is the conduit between vendors, purchasers, solicitors and surveyors, helping to make sure everything progresses smoothly towards a successful sale. Originally from Aldershot in Hampshire, Julie has more than 20 years of experience in sales, lettings, property management and back office operations, with a firm focus on excellent customer service.

I know how stressful moving home can be and I like to think I can make the whole process a little easier," says Julie who adds she knows when to use the no-nonsense approach to getting things done and when a gentler style is appropriate. Away from the office, Julie, who lives in Bedford, loves taking her cross breed dog Lucy for long walks. "
