    ABOUT US

    • LOCAL. It's maybe a cliché, but we are local! Most of us have lived and worked in the area for more years than we care to remember. Our children have attended local schools; we know the parks, shops, bars and restaurants. Buyers of your home don't just buy bricks and mortar they buy into a lifestyle. Who better to promote this lifestyle and your property than a 'local'.
    • INDEPENDENT. We are independently owned and operated with the owners of the business working hands on in the business on a daily basis. It's our name above the door and we care passionately about that.
    • PERSONAL. Most of our clients move infrequently and we know it can be a daunting proposition. One of our experienced team of estate agents will personally oversee both you and your property from start to finish. Whilst the whole team help to sell your home and progress the sale your agent will be on hand to provide guidance, advice and assist you ensuring you have a trusted advisor working with you to meet your objectives. We often advise our clients about their onward purchase and feel our experience is invaluable to many in this area.
    • PEOPLE. Estate agency despite all the technical innovation is still a people business. Yes we're local but we're also highly experienced. The team here boasts around 150 years of agency experience. That experience can make a lot of difference to your move being successful.
    • KNOWLEDGE. Given most of us live in the area, have over 150 years of experience between us and have successfully sold thousands of properties on our client's behalf we feel we know both the area and property market better than most.
    • VALUE. When you invite us to value your property the agent attending will have between 5 and 30 years agency experience under his/her belt. Not only do we know the market incredibly well but we will back up our appraisal figures with comparable evidence. We listen to your objectives and suggest a sensible marketing strategy based on what you are trying to achieve.
    • OFFICES. With smart contemporary offices in prominent locations in Clifton and Westbury we cover the desirable North West Bristol suburbs. Two offices, one team ensures maximum exposure of your home.
    • TRACK RECORD. Whilst we can successfully demonstrate thousands of completed sales in the local area over the years we've been a bit slow outwardly promoting our success in the past. We have included some testimonials from both buyers and sellers on the tab on the left.
    • COMMITMENT. We are dedicated to selling property. We do not operate a lettings, auctioneers, solicitors, mortgage advisor or survey department. Thus all of our energy and effort goes into selling your property. We are happy to recommend good local businesses to assist in these areas. We do not receive inducements to make these recommendations. They are recommended because they are good at their job.


    MARKETING

    As a business we use a wide range of marketing and advertising media. Without giving all our secrets away some of what we strive to achieve is set out below.

    • PROMINENT OFFICE WINDOW. Our offices are one of the most visual aspects of the business. Smart, contemporary offices in prominent locations give both buyer and seller confidence that we are on hand and available. We have highly visual back lit window displays designed to attract enquiries and interest from both serious buyer and casual browser.
    • FOR SALE BOARDS. We are regularly asked if they are still relevant. The answer is they are if used appropriately. We will discuss their use and placement during our conversations.
    • PRINTED ADVERTISING. We utilize a comprehensive range of prominent printed media including the traditional weekly property post and monthly lifestyle magazines such as The Bristol magazine
    • PRINTED BROCHURES. Our brochures are designed to promote the prominent features of the property with a salient description. We back this up in most cases with professional photography and floor plan packages.
    • INTERNET ADVERTISING. we have our own modern comprehensive website that provides detailed information on not just the individual property but the local area and amenities such as schools and health care provision. We also advertise on two of the main property portals.
    • PROFESSIONAL PRESENTATION. We recognise that a property now has to shine against its competitors on the internet sites or printed media. What is going to make your property the one that stands out from the rest and secure that potential buyers attention. We've listened to buyers. They constantly tell us good quality photos, a clear and legible floor plan and concise and accurate description of the property are the most important things for them. we recommend a professional photography package where relevant.
    • PERSONAL SERVICE. Our advertising gives us the raw materials of initial enquiries that we are then able to nurture and develop through good old fashioned personal contact into both vendors and buyers. At the heart of everything estate agency is still very much a people business.
    • COMPREHENSIVE BUYER DATABASE. With two prominent offices jointly marketing every property on our books we have built up a comprehensive database of prospective buyers who are actively looking in the area. We promote your property to relevant parties on this list.
    • SOCIAL MEDIA. Facebook and Twitter are beginning to become more important marketing platforms as people's media platform use changes over time. We also regularly update our newsfeed/blog to ensure we are kept active in this area. Although it's a higher cost option video tours and user driven walkthrough tours are becoming available for us to use. Examples of links to these tours are available on our website.


    PEACE OF MIND

    We are members of two of the industries leading accreditation and redress schemes. This gives you peace of mind that we are a reputable business and adhere to the highest standards and conform to their guidelines.

    • NAEA accreditation - National Association of Estate Agents

    Two of us including one of the directors are members of the NAEA which means the business is bound to comply with the NAEAs high standards.

    Testimonials
    • Introduction

      The comments below have been taken from an independent review website or notes of thanks we receive from both sellers and buyers. We update them from time to time.

      We strive to provide a professional, knowledgeable, personal and friendly service to our clients (the sellers) and our buyers (our prospective future clients). Some sales go through with no associated problems and the process is straightforward for seller and buyer.

      Not every sale progresses this way however and we occasionally have to have challenging conversations with both seller and buyer to establish a way forwards. If both parties are reasonable in their approach then we can usually find a mutually acceptable route forwards. Our many years of experience and diplomacy can often be the difference between a successful conclusion and a fallen sale. Not all agents have this experience or skill set in their armoury.

      Some sales do fall through despite the effort put in by the agent. It is not uncommon to see the frustration of the sale falling through directed at the agent who is ultimately not one of the two parties who make the decisions.

      Good market or poor market over the years we have been successfully sold thousands of homes in North West Bristol. We look forwards to assisting you whether buyer or seller.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      thanks to Karl going above and beyond
      I bought my flat over 2 years ago thanks to Karl going above and beyond to secure it for me, so I had no hesitation in asking him to market the property for me when it came time to sell. His commitment and dedication are exceptional and nothing was too much trouble, even meeting a gas engineer at the property in my absence. Georgina is awesome - very calming and reassuring to talk to and if the says she's going to 'sort it' you'd better believe she will. (Andy Griffiths June 2017)

      I found Karl very helpful during the sale
      Living in London I found Karl very helpful during the sale of my flat. So much so I found it was not necessary for me to visit Bristol from the start to the finish of the process. He seemed quite prepared to deal with issues not directly related to the sale, such as arranging for the clearance of unwanted furniture. (R Mcrow May 2017)

      really great to deal with, efficent, and friendly
      We just completed and picked up the keys from Karl, Georgina and the team at Leese and Nagle. L&N were the agent for the vendor and were really great to deal with, efficent, and friendly and the sale progressed pretty seamlessly which was aided largely by their involvement and help along the way (Aldo May 2017).

      2016

      We came to Mark and Robert having spent 2 years looking for our next house in Bristol. Not only did they sell our house in a matter of days, at the price they had valued it for, they then found us the elusive house we had been looking for for so long. Along the way they spent time advising us several times on possible buys, and once we had found the right house, weeks from giving birth, they successfully ensured the process was completed in time. We moved in a week before our little one arrived, and are most grateful to Mark, Robert and their team for making all this happen for us.

      The agency, Leese & Nagle, proved to be a very well-founded organisation. Instruction was clear, communication excellent and dissemination of information regarding progress of the sale faultless - all members of the office staff appeared well briefed at all times. This is essential, I feel. Ashley Leahey, who handled the sale primarily, was the embodiment of professionalism. His understanding of the housing market combined with his calm reassurance and confidence secured our sale in excess of the asking price. Selling a property is a stressor; both Ashley and Karl (Connolly) ensured that they relieved us of all but a fraction of that! We were delighted with the service we received. I can recommend them, and L& N, without hesitation

      Jane acted most professionally and efficiently on our behalf and maintained an excellent relationship with our purchaser resulting in a rapid and trouble-free progression to exchange. She was pleasant and courteous throughout ,was always available when we needed her and kept us regularly informed of any significant developments. When necessary she involved our solicitor. In all respects a first class service

      2014

      I had clear honest advice as to the value, prior to marketing, which I took. Once on the market viewings were regular and feedback prompt. Offers were reported and sensible advice offered. Following a number of offers from several bidders, we achieved the full price from a proceed able buyer. There were a couple of delays, on each side, Ashley kept us informed and things positive. I can fully recommend L&N and their team. I would add I was in estate agency for 45 years, so know good from bad!

      Jane, Mark, Georgina and the whole Leese and Nagle team have been fantastic. Not only professional and efficient, they truly went the extra mile - doing everything to smooth the process, communicate with all parties and help wherever they could to. I've been thoroughly impressed with their work and ability to go above and beyond expectations to complete the sale. I would certainly recommend them to friends and family and would jump at the chance to use them again.

      Surrey Vendor

      2014

      Very impressed from the first meeting after seeing a few local agents. Professional, knowledgeable and very experienced in the local market. Gave us a good valuation and a competitive commission. Found us a buyer for the full asking price within about a week of the property going on the market. They were very helpful with advice and very responsive when dealing with questions to the buyers, including chasing up to ensure the deal was moving forward

      2014

      Got off to a good start when I was informed very quickly that a suitable property had come onto the market. Viewings were easy to arrange and the subsequent negotiations were expertly handled. I also greatly appreciated not being repeatedly hassled during the conveyancing process only being contacted at key moments. Karl was extremely helpful.
    • Seller Testimonial

      an estate agent that care about their clients
      Both Jane & Mark were very professional and helpful throughout the whole process of selling my property. They constantly kept me updated and were willing to advise if any problems/issues arose. I couldn't recommend them enough. It was evident that they are an independent estate agent that care about their clients (Jo Rees 2015)

      Mark Lloyd

      2015

      I've worked with Ash in the capacity of both buyer and more recently as a vendor, and have always found him to be exceptional. As a buyer he was by far the most proactive of the agents I was registered with, and he was always happy to try and accommodate our need to do viewings out of hours. As a vendor, he was fantastic - he worked extremely hard on our behalf and was frequently updating us on the feedback from viewings. During the conveyancing stages, Ash was always available to help push things along, and he and the team were critical components in ensuring the sale went through. Ash is without question the best agent I have had the pleasure of working with in Bristol, and I would have no hesitation in recommending him and the team at Lease & Nagle to anyone.

      We sold our property through Leese & Nagle, and they were very quick at finding us potential buyers. We were fortunate to have multiple offers and we felt they did a good job of liaising with our chosen buyer to manage their expectations. I would recommend them as an agent as they are fast to respond and act professionally.

      Catherine Miller

      2015

      From the first meeting with Leese and Nagle, right through to completion of the sale, their service has been outstanding. Everyone was unfailingly pleasant,polite, patient, and absolutely on the ball, I appreciated being welcome at viewings and thanks to all of them the sale went through very smoothly and successfully. At my request, they recommended a solicitor who I found brilliant. In a long life, involving relocation quite a few times, this was the easiest, pleasantest and most efficiently handled house move I've experienced. Definitely 5 stars !

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      David H

      2014

      Having recently advised family members re their prospective house sales/purchases I went to this site as a reference point. In the process I was reminded to put a short review on here with regards to our own recent experience with regards to Leese & Nagle in Bristol which was wholly positive. As a prospective purchaser our very first viewing in Bristol was with Mark Leese who impressed us with his professional , but not 'too 'pushy' and therefore off putting, approach. Thereafter for all our following L & N viewings we were in the capable hands of Jayne Payne. I say capable because of all the Estate Agents representatives we subsequently dealt with in our house buying hunt and eventual purchase, Jayne was the only one who demonstrated quite clearly that she had listened to what we said we wanted/ didn't waste our time with superfluous viewings / and gave us appropriate feedback in the decision making phase. Once we'd agreed the sale price, Jane was on hand throughout a necessarily delayed completion phase to ensure that we were appropriately informed/ updated. Given that ones dealings with Estate Agents are not always 100% satisfactory, I think it appropriate to post a review when one finds one who is so professional, experienced and empathetic.

      Alexander 2014
      I have recently purchased a property which Leese & Nagle were advertising for sale. This was my first time purchase so it was important to me and my partner to get as much information from the selling agent as possible. Having attended many viewings for various properties, Karl Connolly stood out as an information guide to the properties we viewed and in giving useful guidance for the things buyers should look out for. Leese & Nagel were also helpful in ensuring the transaction progressed swiftly and fairly for all parties.

      We were shown round the property by a friendly, professional team member. We received prompt feedback on the offer we made. The agency were proactive in making sure things progressed, understanding of our needs/circumstances, very helpful when it came to raising queries/communications with the seller and most importantly ensuring we completed the purchase on the date planned. Thanks to the team for all their help!

      We purchased our property through Leese & Nagle and they were proactive, professional and extremely helpful throughout. In particular, their knowledge of the local market and honest assessments of different areas and properties gave us great confidence. They kept us fully informed throughout the (lengthy) purchasing process and were very supportive. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and would definitely use them if we were going to sell, however we hope that won't be for a very long time!

      Rich Smerin

      2014

      Buying from Leese and Nagle was a very smooth and easy process. Ashley was very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and this flat in particular. The negotiation process was handled very professionally and he gave me very good guidance around the process without pressuring me into paying more than I wanted to. In the end we came up with a good compromise. There were delays my end regarding the mortgage/survey and Ashley was very patient and managed the seller's expectations. In the final few weeks pre exchange there were a number of issues needing to be dealt with including some retentions. Between the solicitors and Ashley this all went smoothly and we completed on the expected date. Overall this was a very painless process and all difficulties were overcome without any undue fuss, would strongly recommend Leese and Nagle for the Bristol area.

      2014

      I've bought two properties from Jane at Leese & Nagle. Both times she was immensely helpful and negotiated excellently both times on my behalf. Her knowledge of the local area and its properties is wonderful, reflected in spot-on pricing (I paid the exact offer price both times). I would certainly recommend Jane, and all at Leese & Nagle, as the number 1 choice for anyone looking for property in the Clifton (and surrounding) areas of Bristol.

      Mark sold me my flat in 2004 as a long term investment. Although I bought at the height of the bubble then and was soon underwater, the advice turned out to be sound and 12 years later I sold the flat and cleared a healthy profit with Mark again taking care of things with help from Georgina. The process was smooth and swift.
