      Booking a Free Market Appraisal

      Our estate agency team will be delighted to arrange a free no obligation property appraisal at a time convenient to you. Our experienced valuers Alex and Emma regularly carry out evening and weekend appraisals as we understand the demands of modern day living. At this point the more information you can give us on your property, your goals and your priorities the better we can assist you on meeting your objectives.

      Before We Meet

      We constantly monitor the local market making sure we are aware of activity that could affect the value of your property. Whether it's a change in supply, a recent sale or a planning application, we'll be sure to let you know where you stand. Evidence will be supplied of similar properties that we have sold in your area ensuring our advice is up to date and relevant to your property.

      At Your Property

      Alex or Emma will meet with you and carry out an internal and external tour of your property to ensure as much information is gained as possible to offer you the best advice. You'll learn how we work and our thoughts on the best means of getting you the result you want through a mixture of traditional services complemented with our unique modern approach. We welcome as much input and questioning from you as this is your opportunity to benefit from our years of experience in the industry reassuring you that your property will be placed in safe hands.

      Preparing your property for sale

      At Paul Fentons we pride ourselves on presenting our properties to a high standard as quality content and photography is essential in achieving the very best price for our home owners.

      We tailor make property particulars through a mixture of professional photography, walk through video tours, aerial photography, floor plans and accurate descriptive text.

      A draft of all sales brochures will be sent to you prior to marketing for your input and approval as no one knows your property as well as you do.

      On the Market

      Your property is advertised far and wide displayed on all the major property portals including Rightmove, Zoopla & Primelocation and many more. We hit the local market instantly through our Facebook & Twitter social media sites, for those that have taken advantage of our walk through video tours their property tours are even featured on our 'Youtube' page. Properties are advertised regularly in the local Chard & Ilminster Newspaper and displayed in the window of our prominent high street office in Chard. Potential buyers who have registered with us eagerly looking for property are telephoned and emailed immediately enabling us to generate high levels of interest in your property in a prompt manner.

      Communication is key

      Throughout our marketing process we will keep you entirely updated so you are informed of all activity and so that we are made aware of any changes in your situation. Weekly property portal reports are sent to all our homeowners giving them an insight into how their property is performing online. Our business cards are given to all buyers and sellers that cross our path with our mobile phone numbers and email addresses to contact us at any time should they need our advice or assistance 7 days a week. Feedback is obtained either during or shortly after viewings have taken place and reported back to our homeowners promptly, we are brutally honest with this feedback giving you true accurate thoughts from potential buyers as listening to viewers feedback and working with you to adjust our marketing strategy where needed could significantly enhance your chance of selling.

      Offers through to Completion

      Paul Fentons will inform you of all offers on your property after a full check of chain details and financial qualification has taken place ensuring you have all the necessary information needed to make an informed decision on the offers you have received. With your approval we will manage the process to gain the best possible outcome for you.

    • Introduction

      Kevin Katner May 2016

      "Emma and Alex worked incredibly hard to sell our house for us. They were highly professional, kind and supportive throughout the process, always on top of the many viewings, providing prompt and useful feedback. They listened to us throughout and were well organised and focussed, giving logical and sensible advice. The advantages of a small local business were apparent throughout, they provided a personal and well informed, joined up service. Very glad we used Paul Fenton, we recommend them."

      Good communication is a great  basis to work from

      MR K Sear

      Emma / Alex, Further to the "HOW DID WE DO" letter you recently sent me please find my feedback below: "With regard to the rating of customer service your agency provided to the family there can be no other response than "Excellent" and we would most definitely identify a big "Yes" if asked to recommend Paul Fenton Estate Agents to friends and colleagues who may have need of similar service. The recommendation is backed up by the approach from all the staff we dealt with m...aintaining a "can do" approach and making sure that the customer's requests or specific needs were attended to. The number of viewings you managed to arrange in the few days the property was on the market supported the will to succeed in a competitive environment. The fact that although I was the signatory to our "contract" you were more than happy to listen to the input from other family members (some known personally by you) and that helped me in my decision-making and final selection of ultimate buyer for the property. Being able to conduct a family review of progress, call your agency with our views and after a supporting call from you be able to accept an offer and remove the property from the advertised market made my job as Executor for my mother's estate a very simple one. Good communication is a wonderful basis to work from. We as a family would like to take this opportunity to wish you all continued success in the agency's extended venture in its support to the community it deals with. Local knowledge and the personal touch will always win." Mr K Sear December 2015

      Mrs P Crump - October 2016

      Before I put my house on the market I had heard horror stories about estate agents! I found Paul Fentons to be friendly, efficient and helpful. I was kept informed of progress and the whole process was managed professionally. I would not hesitate to recommend them - they did me proud.

      Honest, helpful and pleasant
      Mr S Galpin - November 2016

      Thank you both and your assistants for the manner in which you perform your business. Honest, helpful pleasant and above all for me understanding my needs under my personal circumstances. You came through with a very satisfactory result. Personally a very grateful client. P.S I would have no hesitation in recommending your business, I suspect it speaks for itself by the number of For Sale signs you have throughout the district and of course SOLD SIGNS.

      the service provided was second to none
      Mr S Spurway - May 2017

      I advertised my house with Alex and his team, the service provided was second to none. Right from the offset their professionalism and communication skills were really impressive, I felt in the 'loop' throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend to anyone. I also used their Financial Advisor, Jason, he took the weight off my shoulders and dealt with everything on my behalf. Thanks to all at Paul Fenton for a superb service, one happy customer!
