Each and every customer is different; their reasons to put their property on the market are just as varied. We listen, we advise, then we will offer a bespoke service which gives them the comfort they require to trust us to sell their property, whether that is the ability to log on and see the progress of their property online at midnight or to call in for a coffee and a chat at our Ben Rhydding offices.

The quality of his photography, the warmth of his professional relationships and his ready availability, make Greg hard to fault. For me, Greg's tenacity and customer loyalty seamlessly translated into a choice of motivated buyers, peace of mind and a wonderfully trouble-free process. '

    fast • moving

    Once instructed, the Harrison Robinson machine springs into action. Firstly, we target those buyers on our database who are in the market for a property such as yours. We contact them by email and by telephone, so whilst we are organising professional photography, creative copy, floorplans and sale boards, we create a 'hot' list of those who are hungry to view. Then, when you are ready, we hit the ground running. (We sell many homes prior to going live on the internet).

    This is what our buyers say:

    ''Greg Harrison at Harrison Robinson has been the most active of the agents we have met. As buyers, we felt like we were getting a personal service, shown properties that were just coming to market and kept informed of what was happening locally. This was in sharp contrast to the mainstream agents who we had to chase every week, despite their knowing we were in a strong position. For a vendor, it must be great to know your agent is going all out to 'court' buyers, bring them to your door and get them interested in the property you have to sell. Head and shoulders above the competition.'

    professional • shooting

    The big difference between a professional photographer and an estate agent with a camera phone is that one is a professional photographer and the other is not. The average day in the life of an estate agent is complex, demanding and time intensive. We are busy matching your property to the perfect buyers, getting your marketing material together, writing that beautifully descriptive wording, which will engross the house hunting reader. A professional photographer is there to showcase your home in the best and most effective way. People buy with their eyes first; that is why our photographer's day is dedicated to getting those perfect shots, ensuring your property catches those buyers' eyes every time. Using pro-grade equipment and lighting and even digitally retouching if necessary, our professional photographer will bring out the true beauty of your home, bringing it to life on the screen or printed page. Furthermore, we have embraced the latest drone technology - producing stunning, high definition, aerial photography, if appropriate, at an extra charge.

    exceptional • printing

    No other agent's brochure comes close to the stunning, eight-page glossy showcase of your home, which if you wish, we will compile for you with professional photography and scintillating writing to present your home at its very best. Please note that this is a chargeable upgrade from our standard brochure.

    discreet • selling

     At Harrison Robinson we understand that some clients prefer a degree of privacy when selling their home. With Harrison Robinson Discreet, your property will not appear in the press or online and there will be no 'For Sale' board. Instead, we privately contact those clients on our database whose requirements match your property. Please call Greg Harrison for a strictly confidential chat.

    sale • progressing

    We have our own Sales Progression Manager, Helen. Having worked for a property solicitor, she knows the conveyancing process inside out so has the tough job of chasing and cajoling any buyers, sellers, solicitors and mortgage brokers in a property chain, to make sure that your property sale completes on time. If you need some help with completing forms or you are just not sure where things are up to, you can call Helen for a friendly chat. We concentrate on doing the basics better... ...If you fancy a breath of fresh air, come and talk to us.

    video • touring

Our Video Tour is then and only then created by our experienced video providers to produce a stunning representation of your home.

    great • writing
    Dull, formulaic property descriptions, loved by agents, loathed by buyers, are forbidden here. We, at Harrison Robinson, employ professional copywriters whose sole job is to write bright, engaging narratives which bring your property to life so that buyers can better visualise themselves living there.

Guide to Buying in the Ilkley area
  • paragraph

    Buying in Ilkley needn't be difficult, just follow our step by step guide.

    Step 1 - Know how much you can borrow

    Before embarking on your search for a property to buy in Ilkley, it is advisable to arrange your finances i.e. to know how much cash deposit you have available and how much you will need to borrow. If you will need a mortgage it is generally a good idea to arrange a mortgage 'in principle'. Harrison Robinson has pleasure in recommending The Mortgage Advice Bureau who are happy to give you no obligation advice.

    Step 2 - Register with Harrison Robinson

    You can either register online, by telephone or come to see us in our Ben Rhydding office. You should provide us with as much information as possible as to what you looking to buy and let us know if there is anything on our website which you think may be suitable. We will advise you on the different areas of Ilkley, the properties available at the moment, and anything which we are expecting to arrive on the market in the near future. You can receive email and/or SMS text alerts when new properties come onto the market.

    Step 3 - Find the right property

    We will advise you of the Ilkley apartments or houses which meet your criteria and when you have reviewed the photographs, descriptions and floorplans we will arrange viewings of properties which are of interest. We understand that buying an Ilkley property is a big decision and that you may want to view the property several times before making a commitment.

    Step 4 - Making an offer

    When you find a property which you feel is right for you, you can proceed to make an offer. Harrison Robinson will put all offers made to the property owner in writing and include any special conditions or requirements. At the time that an offer is made, we will discuss your situation i.e. whether you have a property to sell and how you plan to finance the purchase. This is the point at which a mortgage that is agreed in principle could strengthen your position.Making an offer does not bind you legally - there is no legal obligation until contracts are exchanged.

    Step 5 - Offer accepted and sale agreed

    Your initial offer may be accepted or there may be negotiations as to the price and/or other terms of the sale. When everything is agreed you will need to provide us with details of your solicitor and we will both write to you and the vendor to confirm the terms and issue a 'memorandum of sale' to both solicitors. At this point you will need to formally instruct your solicitor and complete your mortgage application. Harrison Robinson are able to offer the services of Dezrez Conveyancing and give you an instant quotation for their services.

    Step 6 - Conveyancing

    Having received a draft contract from the vendor's solicitor, your solicitor will raise enquiries and apply for local searches. Your solicitor will advise you as to any legal issues and agree dates for exchange of contracts and completion. We will keep in touch with solicitors during this process, assist with the provision of any missing information, and do our utmost to progress the sale as efficiently as possible.

    Step 7 - Mortgage Valuation Survey and Structural Survey

    In parallel with Step 6 your mortgage company will arrange for a valuation of the property and you may require a structural survey to satisfy yourself that there are no obvious structural problems affecting he property. The mortgage company will issue an offer when the valuation is complete.Obviously you cannot proceed to exchange contracts until you have a mortgage offer and have accepted it (assuming that mortgage finance is required of course).

    Step 8 - Exchange of contracts

    When all issues have been resolved, your solicitor will ask you to sign the contract and will exchange contracts with the vendor's solicitor. At this point a portion of the purchase price will be paid over (normally 10%).A date for completion will normally be fixed at the time of exchange of contracts.

    Step 9 - Completion

    This is the final step in the buying process and this is when the balance of the purchase price is paid. Once completion has taken place, we will arrange for you to pick up the keys and you can take possession of your new property!

      'We wanted to put in writing how delighted we have been with the service offered to us by your firm. From the first time we contacted you, you and your team have been exceptionally helpful, providing us with excellent professional advice and suggestions to help us sell our house. You marketed the property in a clever and interesting way, the photos you took and the description designed to make the house appeal to the best market. The effectiveness of your advice is evident in the fact that we sold the house within four days of it going on the market, receiving a full asking price offer. It has always seemed that no request was ever too much trouble for Harrison Robinson. You, your wife and Marc Chapman have been tireless in making the sale go through with minimal difficulty to us. It has been great to work with such a friendly team of people. Regards Craig & Sarah Baker
