On a personal note….
On Monday 25th October 1999, a life long ambition came true for me, as Oliver Minton Estate Agents opened for business in Stanstead Abbotts. I started my career in estate agency 14 years ago and stood down as Branch Manager of the Ware branch of Halifax Property Services in August 1999, in order to devote my time to the setting up of the new business.
After 4 highly successful years in Stanstead Abbotts as the first specialist village-based local estate agency, we are now repeating this success in Puckeridge. In Stanstead Abbotts, Roydon, Puckeridge & Standon,
by acting as a tourist information-style agency for these villages, we have promoted them to a much wider audience then ever before. We target buyers from outside the normal Hertfordshire Mercury catchment area and attract people to explore our villages. See ‘Roydon’ page at www.oliverminton.com . We currently have over 1000 applicants on our database and these are all people specifically wanting VILLAGE LIFE – not town-orientated applicants who regard the villages as a second-best option.
In both branches, I have invested in the latest information technology in order to provide customers with the highest quality estate agency products: Full colour laser printed details, 360 degrees moving image ‘virtual tours’, sophisticated Internet sites, floor plan capability, aerial photographs, computerized mailing systems and special sales progression features enabling us to efficiently manage the sale of your property. Both office databases are synchronized, enabling us to offer all our properties automatically from Puckeridge and Stanstead Abbotts.
Equally important to me as leading the competition in estate agency technology, is providing the highest possible levels of service to our sellers and buyers. We look forward to being able to help with your next property sale or purchase.
