    As an independent, local agency based in Eccleshall Nantwich and Stone we offer a flexible, personal service to suit you which many larger companies cannot. Our professional and experienced sales team are dedicated to ensuring you achieve the best possible sale price for your property as swiftly and as easily as possible. You will have a dedicated team working on your behalf, each of whom will visit your property and understand your priorities and requirements. We are here to help and advise you every step of the way. We believe in a culture of openness and will talk you through the reasons behind our advice so that you can be confident you are making the right decisions.
  • paragraph

    Fairness and Openness

    We understand that selling your home can be a stressful process with a lot riding on it. A common concern is that it can be tough to make very important decisions when you're not an expert in the property market, leaving you with that little worried feeling...

    'That's why we're here, we are the experts, working on your behalf'

    We are here to help and advise you every step of the way and will provide personal advice on how best to present and market your home to prospective buyers. At the same time we will talk you through the reasons behind our advice so you can be confident in the decisions you make. Although we will be sure to stay in close contact to keep you up to date with how things are going we would always encourage your calls and questions as we want to provide you with an exceptional service.

    Matching Buyers to Your Property

    We make sure all our suitable buyers are sent your property's particulars as soon as you come on to the market, by email, internet, text message or post to buyers registered in both our Eccleshall and Stone branches. In addition we stay in regular contact with our buyers and send them weekly e-newsletters discussing new properties, property of the week and other upcoming events. We use the state of the art ExpertAgent computer system which allows us to effectively manage our client database and ensure that the right buyers are matched to the right properties across both our branches.

    In addition to the usual service you would expect from an agent when registering buyers, this system allows buyers to register themselves online and manage their account, including information such as buying status and requirements at any time of the day or night. This means our list of local buyers is kept more up to date, ensuring we can market your property to the right people and maximise your chances of finding the right buyer as soon as possible.

  • paragraph

    Sales Particulars
    Our brochures are all designed so show your home to its best advantage and to catch the eyes of buyers. All materials produced by us to market your home will have a high quality professional finish. However, while we are here to help and advise you, we believe you should ultimately dictate what you want for your property. As such, all of our brochures can be customised to suit your wishes. Whichever the style you choose, you can have large colour photos, full room descriptions, measurements, floor plans and our now legendary quirky descriptions, which make our pages a must read for many locals! These will be displayed to their full advantage in the window of our town centre offices.
  • paragraph

    Printed Press Advertising
    We advertise properties extensively in several publications which cover the area. Your property would appear regularly in our colour advertisement pages of the Nantwich Chronicle, Staffordshire Life and Shropshire Life. These publications are known to be the most popular within the region for people looking to move home. We would also include your property in our own personalised glossy lifestyle magazine which is published through The Guild of Professional Estate Agents. This publication is distributed to selected independent agents throughout the region meaning your property will get exposure across the entire area. Our high quality adverts include internal and external photos and interesting descriptions to ensure your home makes the biggest impact possible. We can also organise adverts in any magazine, including Staffordshire Living, North Staffs Magazine, Farmers Weekly and Horse and Hound.
  • paragraph

    For Sale Board
    With your consent we would erect one of our infamous purple 'For Sale' boards at your home. Research has shown that 80% of buyers drive around the areas they like looking for boards to identify potentially suitable properties and we wouldn't want you to miss out on these opportunities. However, we understand that some people may be concerned about inconvenient intrusions resulting from a sales board so should you wish, we can add a 'viewing by appointment only' card ensuring any enquiries are handled by our team, leaving you worry-free.
  • paragraph

    Contact
    We feel that by working closely with you we can achieve the best sale price for you. We will contact you regularly and update you with the interest we have had in your property and information on all of the web statistics we have collated from the portals we use. We will also discuss with you how the current market conditions may have changed and how this may affect our marketing strategy for your property.
  • paragraph

    Viewings
    We make the effort to validate all of our potential buyers as thoroughly as possible so that we can assess their motivation and ability to purchase your home. This means our efforts are focussed on the people most likely to make realistic buyers for your property. On the day of the viewing we will send a text message to the viewers to remind them of the time and location of their viewing to minimise the chances of a no show. Should you wish, and by prior arrangement, a member of our sales team can accompany the viewing. Every viewing will be followed up swiftly to enable us to secure an offer or offer constructive feedback to maximise your chances for next time. We will inform you if we are unable to contact your viewer for any reason.
  • paragraph

    Offers
    Once an offer is generated from our viewing follow up procedure we will inform you by telephone as soon as possible. We will then deal with all of the ensuing negotiations to maximise the price you get for your property. Any and all offers will be put to you in writing in accordance with the law and for your records. Once a sale is agreed, we will update you weekly as to the progress of the sale, right up to exchange of contracts, keeping you informed every step of the way.
  • paragraph

    Photography

    We use state of the art digital SLR cameras with ultra-wide angle lenses in order to capture more of each room in every shot allowing us to take spectacular photos of your home. Photos are the most important tool in selling property and we insist that nothing but the best will do.

    We will often suggest a high level mast photograph which can give you a new dimension to your property and further enhance your brochures. Offering a totally different perspective, these photos can often make or break the marketing of your home.

  • paragraph

    Internet Advertising
    We believe that utilising all the latest marketing technologies including the more established internet sites and social media is crucial to achieve the best price for your home. Thats why we market your property on more than twenty of the most prominent web portals and you can follow us on Facebook and Twitter!

    James Latham BA (Hons)
    James is a dabber through and through, but was last seen working in Nantwich on a milk round at the age of 14. He assures us that he has gained considerable experience in the Cheshire property market since then, working in several different towns and agencies since 1996 and has finally come home to roost. In the rare hours we don't have his nose focibly pressed to the grindstone James is a huge movie and music buff, and has recently branched out into after dinner entertainment sessions with a guitar but draws the line at singing. Rather concerningly for us he cites his other great passions as holidays with his family and drinking Bourbon; we love honesty but 'drinking and being away from work' aren't ideal CV fillers!

    Laura Pickin BMus (Hons)
    Sociable Shropshire lass Laura came to James Du Pavey in the very early days of the Nantwich office. Since then she has become an integral part of the team. Laura is a passionate photographer which shows in the great property pictures that she is famous for! Always smiling, she loves the outdoors and cites her interests as baking, cooking and going to restaurants alongside going to the gym. Presumably the one counteracts the effects of the others. We can work with that logic!

    Matthew Watts
    Matt is a recent returnee from that there London town where he lived and worked for several years, we've taken him on with a view to reintegrating him back into normal society. We're getting there slowly but surely, although we still find him gently rocking muttering dark words about 'The Metropolitan Line' and sometimes trying to pay for bus journeys with a credit card but we're sure we'll have him settled in and remembering to take his wellies wherever he goes before long! One major advantage of escaping urban life is he can enjoy his favourite toy, his Merc, going above the dizzying heights of 17m.p.h. All this speed seems to have affected Matt, he can't get enough of the thrill and is now working towards his pilot's licence too. We'll have to install a runway at JDP HQ!!

    Shelly Margolan
    Not only did Shelly join us bringing with her 15 years in the business, she also massively upped our fitness quota. In fact we think she does enough exercise to offset everybody else! When she's not busy climbing mountains she likes to sneak in half marathons here and there. Then, just to give the feet a bit of a rest she'll just hop out of a plane for a quick skydive, you know, as you do!

    Rosie Hound
    Rosie is the best behaved member of the team. Having been abandoned on the streets of Ireland at some point in early 2011 she was picked up and shipped over to England where her soppy eyes and wriggly bottom ensured her a new job as an Estate Hound. Chief in charge of cuddles and morale she spends most of her days snoozing under one of the desks, saving her energy to kidnap discarded paper and to steal any treat left unguarded by the other team members.
