    Who Are We?
    image cannot be displayed

    Established in 1996 by husband and wife team, Lynda Hearne and Lyndon Le Boutillier, Hearnes has now become one of the most successful and respected estate agencies in Dorset and Hampshire.

    Right from the start, Lynda and Lyndon set out to change people's perceptions of estate agents; to prove that friendliness and professionalism can go hand in hand; to be open and straightforward and always ready to help; to show that the technology of the digital age and the traditional values of independence and service were perfectly compatible; be responsive and accountable and live up to every promise we made.

    In short, to take the usual stresses and strains out of buying and selling. And make the whole process as simple and straightforward as you've a right to expect.

    Lynda was educated locally at Talbot Heath School, completed her A levels at Millfield School and obtained her Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees at Loughborough University. Her competitive nature has always driven her to succeed, highlighted by 12 years of competition in athletics at national level and twice running the London Marathon! Her time spent at a subsidiary of PepsiCo led her to fully understand the need for service excellence.

    Lyndon was brought up and educated in Bedfordshire where his father ran his own business. Lyndon's career in Estate Agency began in 1982 when he worked for Taylors, a subsidiary of Hambro Countrywide. He soon became Area Manager and in 1993 moved to the Bournemouth area, still working for the Hambro Group. After further success as Regional Manager, Lyndon recognised the need to move the business focus to the clients without the restrictions and inflexibility of a corporate agency.

    "As committed Christians, we believe our clients deserve a standard of service which is both ethical and effective. We always endeavour to understand their real needs and fulfil them in the way they've every right to expect. And we expect them to judge us on how well we achieve these aims."

    Lynda and Lyndon were married in 1998 and have since been blessed with the arrival of four children, Jordan, Noah, Samuel and Grace.

    In 2010 Anthony Holtom and Sally Gravener joined Hearnes as Shareholders and Directors in Ringwood. Anthony has been a leading Estate Agent in Ringwood for 22 years for a large national company. Sally started her career there years in 2001 subsequently working in Highcliff where she becames the highest performing Manager in the area,

    Anthony and Sally are lifelong Ringwood residents and support the local people and business' in every way they can. They have created a pro active estate agency office with tailored marketing suitable for all property types. The double fronted office is situated in a prominent town centre location with a large amount of window space to advertise their properties.

    Sally and Anthony became engaged in 2011 and plan to marry soon.

    Promoting your property - Advertising

    For advertising to be effective, it has to convey the right message in the right medium to the right people at the right time - and from practical experience, we know exactly how that can be achieved.

    We maintain a constant presence in local papers and property supplements, in regional and specialist magazines - and in every case, we ensure our adverts, both large and small, are both distinctive and noticeable in a particularly crowded and competitive environment.

    Through such advertising, your property could be seen by more than 200,000 people - generating serious enquiries week in and week out, and helping to give you the best possible chance of attracting a buyer and securing a sale.

  • paragraph

    Literature

    Take a look at any of the printed material we produce and you'll immediately see how it reflects the standards we've made our own.

    Our property particulars are clear and concise, with colour photos showing each property at its best, additional views of interiors to add interest and appeal where appropriate, and all the necessary information presented in a format that's coherent and easy to digest.

    For substantial properties, we'll put together a full-colour brochure, with a cover commissioned from a professional photographer, extensive coverage of both interiors and exteriors, room by room specification and an overall look and feel that exudes quality on every page.

    In other words, literature that does full justice to your property - and acts as a silent salesman in the most positive and productive way.

  • paragraph

    Web promotion

    With more and more people having access to the internet, we have an unprecedented opportunity to put your property in front of an ever increasing audience.

    To that end, we've made sure our own website is as hardworking and effective as any of our staff. Making it simple to use, easy to find what you're looking for and full of the crystal-clear information that's needed to make a decision.

    We also put your property on rightmove.co.uk and various other websites - while our own website attracts hundreds of people in a typical month, many of whom go on to visit a property in person and then put in an offer which leads to a sale.

    Seller's guide

    When you decide to sell your home, it's worthwhile asking friends, neighbours and colleagues for their experience of local estate agents. From this, you can put together a short list of three or four - asking each for a valuation of your home.

    Don't simply opt for the agent who gives you the highest valuation or quotes the lowest fee, but make a rounded judgement on the impression they create and the services they offer. And adopt a similar approach when choosing a solicitor to handle your sale.

    If you ask us to sell your property, everything we do will be focused on attracting the maximum number of potential buyers and obtaining the best possible price in the optimum time.

    To do this, we make use of a wide range of resources, including

    • accurate valuations, based on our intimate knowledge of the local market
    • detailed, full-colour property particulars and brochures
    • eye-catching sale boards
    • prime position advertising in local and regional media
    • your property featured on our own website, rightmove.co.uk and other relevant sites
    • accompanied viewings
    • continually updated database of people already looking to buy

    The result? Your property marketed to maximum effect - and your prospects of selling inevitably enhanced.

    Buyer's guide

    When you're thinking of buying a house, the first thing to do is find out how much you'll be able to borrow for your mortgage. You can talk to independent advisers or approach a bank or building society, but whichever mortgage you choose, you should be sure the repayments and running costs of your new home are affordable. Some lenders now provide certificates of mortgage approval and these can be very useful to demonstrate you're a serious and credible buyer to sellers and agents.

    There are a number of other costs you'll incur when buying - with stamp duty and solicitor's fees likely to account for several thousand pounds. You'll also need sufficient funds to cover any deposit and fees for surveys, valuations, land registry, mortgage arrangements and removal expenses.

    When you find a property you like, you can make an offer to the selling agent and if it is accepted, you should ask for the property to be taken off the market. At this stage, you should instruct a solicitor to act for you, and together with the seller's solicitor, they will draw up the contracts for the sale. Your solicitor will make any enquiries that are needed and resolve any questions or queries you may have.

    While this is being done, you should arrange for a survey on the property and if this is unsatisfactory, you will still be entitled to pull out of the sale without penalty. Prior to contracts being exchanged, you will be asked for a deposit, and once you've paid that, your sale should proceed to completion on the date you and the seller have agreed.

    Mr & Mrs DT, Bournemouth

    Mrs R, Ringwood

Both Jackie and I wanted to express our congratulations and thanks for the way that Hearnes's and, in particular, your branch have managed the recent sale of our property. The process was handled professionally and efficiently from valuation to sale and nothing appeared too much trouble for all your staff. In concluding, I will certainly thoroughly recommend the services of Hearns's to friends, relatives and colleagues when and where opportunity presents itself.

    Mr & Mrs C, Ringwood

    "We would like to express a very sincere thank you for the flowers that we received today, it really was an extremely nice surprise. I suppose that we should not have been surprised, because from the day that we walked into your office to enquire about the properties that you were marketing, we have received attention far higher than we could have expected. You kept us informed constantly how the chain was progressing and answering any queries that we had in a very professional manner, and we received the same help and courtesy from all the office members"

    Mr G.T & Mrs a Davies, Ashley Heath

    "Finally you did it. And with completion of the sale of The Gatehouse, Hearnes have finally made me (John) have to eat a lifetime's cynical views about Estate Agents!

    As Elaine and I have said to you before, this is the first time we have used an estate agent and genuinely felt the fees were really earned. In your case, however, we feel the energy, determination and commitment made the fee worth every penny. We have been delighted with your service, standards and quality throughout. And that goes for communications with calls answered or returned promptly, courteously and effectively.

    Very impressive all round. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you - in fact we already have!"


    Mr & Mrs Frazer-Robinson

    Thank you very much for being so friendly and helpful and making buying a home not such an ordeal"
