    You Should Expect More From Your Agent.
  • paragraph

    image cannot be displayed
    Most agents seem to be focused on what they can get from their clients; can they upsell a marketing package? Can they sell a mortgage? Can they get any other streams of income from their vendor?

    We feel that sellers should be able to get the very best service in the marketplace to enable them to get the best price for their property - your choice of agent is key to this.

    We plan to give all our vendors access to all the technology we can get our hands on that will benefit them, we will consider any requests that our vendors want to use - maybe they have seen something somewhere that they fancy trying - if its feasible, then why not!! 

    We work differently to the normal agent, our clients can testify that relationship agency gets better results than traditional methods.

    We live in a 24 hour world, selling your house should be no different.

Buying Tips
  • paragraph

    image cannot be displayed

    How much can I spend?

    How much you can spend depends on how much you borrow from a lender and that is generally calculated on your income and savings.

    Most lenders now use "affordability" measures rather than the old multiples used to calculate borrowing limits. These take into account many other items such as any debts you may have, if you have children or not and your employment could also been considered. Factors such as credit history and size of deposit may also be considered. In general terms, if affordability measures are followed lenders will work at between three and four times individual or joint salary.

    Whilst interest rates are historically low at the moment, rates can change and will go up at some point so its far better not to work to these limits but allow for some future increases.

    We would always recommend working with an approved mortgage advisor to ensure the best possible deal but ensuring you can afford the loan in the years to come.

    Working out the costs

    Buying a home can be an expensive process. You will have to pay for buildings insurance, life insurance if you have a joint mortgage or dependents, contents insurance, gas and electricity bills, council tax and water rates, ground rent and perhaps service charges.

    Finding a mortgage

    We would always advise using a professional and well know mortgage advisor for the best possible advice over a number of lenders. This way depending on circumstances your mortgage can be dealt with quickly and efficiently.

    Many mortgage lenders can agree a mortgage in principle over the phone or over the internet.

    Most lenders will charge on average £500 for setting up a mortgage, with higher fees for better rates and lower or no fees for their higher rate loans.

    Solicitors and surveys

    All purchases need solicitors to do the conveyancing. This is the process of checking all of the legal aspects of the sale:

    That the seller has the legal right to sell the property, that no one has right of way over it and that there are no land disputes.

    Your mortgage lender will also require at least a basic survey to check the value of the home. But it is advisable to have a more detailed survey conducted depending on the age of the property.

    The three types of survey are:

    • Mortgage valuation - This is the cheapest at around £150. This is a simple survey that tells the lender the property is worth at least what you want to borrow and that if you were to default on the payments it would be able to sell the property and get its money back. It won't spot major faults.
    • Homebuyer's survey - This is a far more thorough survey and should reveal any serious defects. It will normally cost around £500.
    • Full building survey - A full survey goes into the condition of your property in even greater detail. This is recommended for older properties or unusual properties. It costs from £400 to £1,000.

    The final steps

    When contracts are exchanged between you and the seller - a process carried out by solicitors - both parties are committed to the deal. If you pull out, for whatever reason, you will lose your deposit.

    Conversely, the seller cannot accept a higher offer. This is also when the completion date - when you get the keys and can move in - is set. Most completion dates occur around a fortnight after exchange of contracts, if for some reason you need to move swiftly it is possible to exchange and complete on the same day, although solicitors prefer to avoid this.

A bit more depth on the services we offer.

    Valuation and Sales:

    Grayson Florence Property offers a full service estate agent if you are looking to sell your property. With our experience in the market it is our job to guide you from having your property valued for sale, all the way to the day you hand over the keys and open a bottle of bubbly!

    We will provide you with a professional and evidence supported market valuation of your property. We will then give you guidance on your next step, whether it be marketing to get you sold for the best possible price and moved, low key marketing to buy you some time to find a suitable property to buy, a mixture of the two or even none of the above and we can come up with another action plan to suit your needs and timescale.

    When you are ready to sell and get your property onto the market, Grayson Florence Property offer everything you would expect from an agent, but also a bit extra.

    I was always told its not what you do, but how you do it! All estate agents are tasked with doing the same job, what makes Grayson Florence Property different is how it does it!


    We will market your property with the highest quality photography and presentation possible, there are even options for professional photography to further enhance your property if suitable.


    Your property will be:

    • Advertised on the main property websites in the UK to ensure that the right people see it at the right time.
    • Advertised in the local media to ensure that anyone still using this media is also exposed to the property
    • Bespoke property flyers will be distributed within the local area of YOUR property
    • Highlighted in the local area by a traditional for sale board
    • Emailed to our applicant database
    • Called out to our applicant database
    • Highlighted on all appropriate social media outlets, Facebook/Twitter/Instagram - please share and like!

    Sales Progression and Move Service

    When you are sold you have a long way to go before you get the money and pop the bubbly. You are in safe hands with Grayson Florence Property - I will liaise with your buyer, both solicitors (yours and theirs) and of course yourself. It matters as much to me as to you that you complete as simply as possible, with this in mind it is my job to ensure that solicitors have all the information they need in a timely fashion, that everyone is aware at all times of the required timescales - I will also help where I can, whether it be collecting documents, speaking to councils or even chasing signatures. This really is the nuts and bolts of moving house! Grayson Florence Property will also offer a move service, this is where we will project manage removals/packing and all else needed to help you move and make it as easy as possible - this is just an example of how we do things differently.


    Move or Improve

    This may be a new idea, many people often have an estate agent out to their property when they have no intention of selling, but just want to know if they will add value to a property with certain works. Just tell us at the start and we can be even more helpful. If you are looking to move or improve, we can give you clear and real advice as to what any potential improvements will do to your property value - we will even give you a guidance and opinion on ways to do it differently maybe? We have access to suitable trades if you want to take your ideas further, but if you decide that you want to move after all then we can also do that (as you would expect)

    House Sitting Service

    This is also a new idea. We are insured and set up to keep your keys and check on your property whilst you are away. We can check security on set occasions, we can make sure post is cleared to somewhere other than the floor, we can open and close curtains if wanted, we can even take the milk in or meet with any tradesmen. This is a free service that matches our abilities with your requirements. The reason we do this for free is that we believe a local estate agent should be a person who is recommended in the local area, and has a relationship with local people. All we ask in return is that when and if you decided to sell, you let us provide you with a valuation and the opportunity to sell your property - you could always choose someone else, but we don't think you will when we show you how we work.

    Asset Valuation

    If you are a landlord and are looking to update your asset book valuation of your properties, you can ask us to provide this service. We will liaise with tenants and ensure that there is no misunderstanding which can lead to unsettled tenants. We will then provide this valuation in writing so you can file it and keep your asset valuation correct. When you are ready to sell any investments, we hope you will give us the opportunity to bring the properties to the market to achieve you the best possible price for your letting investment.

    David Florence

    My name is David Florence and I have worked in the property industry for the last decade or so..... I started as a trainee in Bristol; straight out of university. I progressed through the UK's largest property group to run my own branch in Gloucestershire. I then managed an independent agent in Cheltenham until I got the opportunity to move back to Bristol and run a flagship office of a major UK brand. I was raised and schooled in Bristol so this was a big opportunity for me to "come home". Recently my life has changed massively - I have had my first child!!! Grayson Florence was born at the end of 2014 and gave me the impetus to make this step to create a company that will provide the values and stability that he can be proud of.

      David offers a more personal tailored service

David is friendly, professional and goes the extra mile to support you in all aspects of house moving, from achieving the best price when selling, to helping you find your next home.

    • Seller Testimonial

      Available when we needed him - Even on a Sunday
      Thinking of selling a property with Grayson Florence? My advice do it! Commission was more than competitive, once we signed up we were asked for our input on the photos and ideas on marketing. We were kept up to date on interest and viewings, they tried to work around our busy lives and gave almost immediate feedback when viewings happened. The house sold within a matter of days over asking price! But the service was amazing, ensuring the laborious task of dealing with conveyancers by chasing them for results! And kept up-to date on an almost daily basis, including when things with the solicitors went slowly, calming me down and speeding them up! David was available when we needed him and if he wasn't available would get back to us straight away, even on a Sunday! 6 weeks from sale agreed to completion! A 5 star service. Thank you David Lots of companies have tag lines, but this one is 100% absolutely correct "Expect More
    • Seller Testimonial

      "expect more" that is exactly what they provide
      Grayson Florence Property who are they? They are a fantastic estate agent. I had never heard of the company before, but thought it would be interesting to hear what they had to say. From the moment I met David, he just seemed different from the other agents I'd met...fresh, enthusiastic and interested in us as people, not just commission!The commission rates were very competitive, our house sold in just days for above asking price and I didn't have to chase the solicitors once, it was all taken care of by David.Grayson Florence Property is right, you should "expect more" and that is exactly what they provide.

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      David was the complete opposite
      David was great as an agent, right from the moment we met him on the front step of our future house to the day we collected the keys. The number of times I have refused to buy a house simply because the agent was a bit rubbish - David was the complete opposite... and so we bought our first house! He really did push the process along by chasing people every day and no time of day was a hassle for him to talk to us. Very happy and would highly recommend using Gayson Florence as your agent!
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Much nicer experience
      My recent viewing of a property for sale with Grayson Florence was, I am pleased to say,a much nicer experience of "estate agents" than I had come to expect.David had arrived at the property before us and was waiting inside. He introducedhimself and allowed us to look at each room without interruption, unless a question wasasked or information required. This he did knowledgeably in an informative and friendly manner without the pushy tactics so often used by others.Overall, a pleasant experience.V Hallworth
