  • paragraph

    image cannot be displayed

    COAST AND COUNTRY HAVE SOLD OVER 2500 HOMES IN TEIGNBRIDGE

    As far as we are aware no agent has sold more.

    We have traded in Newton Abbot longer than almost all of our competitors and have a wealth of local property knowledge and experience.

    WE OFFER A GREAT CHOICE FOR BUYERS AND SELLERS.

    We are the most popular choice in our area when it comes to selling. These means that we have more homes to offer buyers

    Being in contact with a large number of vendors and purchasers contributes to our track record of success.

    We sell resale properties alongside a small number of selected new homes by small developers. We do not rent property or sell new homes for national home builders. This means that all of our resources are focussed on achieving the goals of our clients.

    WE ARE INNOVATIVE AND SUCCESSFUL

    We use the latest technology alongside proven traditional methods of estate agency. We regularly innovate and are often copied by our competitors. If you are looking for an agency that throws your property on the internet and disappears, that's not us. We strive to be the best and most successful; this requires ongoing effort, excellent communication and a proactive approach. You cannot rely on one media, if you want maximum exposure. We us every method we can to promote our clients' homes.

    We own our prominent office and trade without debt. This means that we can offer low fees whilst providing more extensive marketing than almost all of our competitors.

    Ashley Mathews - Senior Partner

    I Studied Chemistry and Computing at Portsmouth Polytechnic, then trained as an Independent Financial Adviser specialising in mortgages. I was one of the first advisers to be awarded the newly introduced Financial Planning certificate in 1988.

    Shortly after I took up a management role at Coast and Country and sometime later the senior position and joint ownership of the firm. I simultaneously ran a substantial hospitality business, which I built up and subsequently sold. I also managed exhibitions across the UK and Ireland, for an International property company, which sold thousands of homes in Spain and Cyprus.

    More recently I have been involved in a number of successful residential renovation projects and I have run the London Marathon twice. I am currently a residential and commercial landlord. My extensive knowledge of the property market and experience is available to the clients of Coast and Country.

    Michael Griffiths - Managing Partner

    I am a career estate agent with almost 30 years' experience. I trained in a corporate environment where I rose quickly through the ranks, achieving 'Negotiator of the Year' in 1990 and 1991.

    Over time I have acquired a tremendous depth of knowledge relating to the Teignbridge property and a great number of useful contacts.

    My experience is the basis of the advice I give and it adds credibility to my appraisals and weight to the marketing of homes listed with us.

    Properties valued by me and marketed by Coast and Country are perceived as desirable. I started work as a negotiator at Coast and Country in the 1980s and today I am the managing partner, with overall responsibility sales and marketing. I love working with people and property as much today as I always have. The level of repeat business we conduct is something I am very proud of and recommendations are the key to my continued success.

    Tom Wotton - Sales Manager

    I Studied at King Edward V1 College in Totnes leaving in 2003 obtaining 10 GCSEs. I joined Coast and Country as a trainee negotiator in January 2004 at the age of 17. After gaining experience specialising in selling residential property with the firm, I now manage the sales team and aim to make sure all of our clients are looked after exactly how they would expect.

    In my personal life I enjoy running, having run half marathons and off-road 10 KM races. I also enjoy spending time with my family, and doing DIY when I am able, which helps in my hope to continue in property development as a hobby.

    Having lived in and around Newton Abbot all of my life I believe my extensive local knowledge is extremely valuable to clients selling their homes in the area.

    Callum Hawkins - Sales Negotiator

    I studied Theatre and Performance at Plymouth University and graduated in 2012. I then moved to London to take up a position with UPS. After six months in the city I decided to return to my roots in Devon. I found employment with Ross Aldridge Solicitors and then moved into the catering industry working for Whitbread.

    I kept looking for new challenges, and took the opportunity to train at Coast and Country. As soon as I started working in estate agency I realised that it was something I really enjoyed and was excited about. I got a great sense of satisfaction every time I helped a client find a new home and I have remain incredibly enthusiastic about my latest role, as I strive to learn more and progress my career.

    Darren Smith - Appraisals and Listings Manager

    After studying at Dawlish Community College I took a role in retail. I enjoyed the working environment and interaction with customers so quickly rose to management position.

    In 1996 I decided it was time for a new career with greater opportunities. I started work as a negotiator and gained considerable knowledge of the property market. I was then offered a more senior position by a corporate estate agent. With higher remuneration and the chance to learn in a different environments, this was a great move and, over time, I became a top performing listings manager.

    Although the corporate environment had many positives, it proved somewhat restrictive so I moved back into independent agency taking the role of office manager, which was both challenging and rewarding.

    When a senior position became available at Coast and Country I decided it was an opportunity not to be missed. Working for the top performing agent in an area just makes the job easier and means you can offer better value and service to clients, so I have never looked back.

    Diane Cleave - Office Manager

    I am proud to be Teignbridge born and bred and I understand what makes this area so desirable, not only to the people who already live here but what attracts people from other parts of the country.

    I come from a quality assurance and auditing background and in my transition into Estate Agency fourteen years ago I brought with me the skills and commitment needed to provide our customers a good quality service.

    I have a passion for horses and enjoy training and competing with my own horse.

    Sarah Warren - Administrator

    I grew up in Plymouth and attended Plymstock School before moving to Cornwall to study Geography at the University of Exeter's Penryn Campus; working in retail during evenings, weekends and out of term time. I moved back to Devon the month after graduating in 2015 and settled in Newton Abbot, where I continued my career in retail supervision and customer service.

    As a result of my own first house purchase in 2016, I decided that Estate Agency was something I had a genuine interest in and consequently took up an administrative position at Coast and Country in September 2017.

    • Introduction

      We aim to deliver the highest level of service to all our clients, both buyers and sellers. It's always great to have a little bit of feedback, and it's even better to see that our hard work is appreciated!

    • Seller Testimonial

      Coast & Country really stand out from the rest

      Just to say a big thank you for all your efforts selling my bungalow & finding us our perfect house! We have been here nearly a month now & we really love it. Many estate agents get a bad press (& after dealing with some of them recently, I can see why!) but Coast & Country really stand out from the rest.

      Buying & selling turned out to be a far from straight forward experience for us. But your confidence & the proffessional approach from the whole team never faltered, and that took away some of our stess & kept us reassured.

      Many Thanks,

      Dear Mike,

      Thank you so much for being the agent in the above property. When the first sale fell through I never expected a new customer to come along so soon afterwards. Your company has acted professionally and kept me informed at all times. Thank you mike for everything.

      Dear Chris & Ashley,

      We exchanged at 5.05pm yesterday with completion set for early august.

      Thank you for your patience and the time you have spent chasing the sale through. I appreciate the middle of the chain was extremely fractious.

      I would highly recommend you as agents as you've been extremely informative throughout the whole process and been professional through and through. You have a good team and I would happily do business with you again.

      We couldn't have done it without you! 
      Having been given just two weeks to sell in order to avoid losing a property we had set out hearts on, Coast and Country not only found us a buyer but also made a potentially stressful process both calm and enjoyable. The company was consistently professional, supportive and committed. Chris in particular dedicated much time and attention to our situation, even popping in post-renovation to see how we'd got on! We absolutely love our new home, so thank you Coast and Country; we couldn't have done it without you.

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      It felt like a very personal service...

      We wish to say a big thank you to you all for the proffessional and efficent service provided during both our recent house sale and purchase of our new home. Having been happily settled in our old home for some years, we were not sure what to expect when choosing an estate agent, your enthusiasm and energy in marketing our house during what we thought was a notoriously difficult period - christmas, was impressive. It felt like a very personal service.

      Your team were always helpful, prompt, and made the anticipated stressful process relatively easy for us. We know we made the right choice and have already recommended your agency to friends. We will continue to sing your praises.

      Best Wishes,

      Extremely approachable and knowledgeable...

      Dear Tom,

        I would just like to convey my gratitude to you and Coast and Country for the work you have done in securing my purchase. Especially as I was not your client, I felt that you went above and beyond your remit to keep me updated, to assist me through the whole house buying process and to keep the sale on track (and to keep mine and Kate's stress levels down!)

       You are extremely approachable and knowledgeable, as are the staff in your office, and it has been a pleasure to work with you. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to a friend, and indeed you will be my first choice should I choose to sell my home in the future.

      With thanks again.
