    Choosing an Estate Agent?

    For most people selling a property is likely to be  the biggest, most important financial transaction  they will ever make. This is why a professional,  knowledgeable and local Estate Agent who offers  a high level of service is essential to reduce as  much of the stress as possible.  Raine and Co always strive to gain the best  possible price for your home but we believe in  honest, accurate valuations based on recent  property sales in the area and the condition of  the property market - we would never over-value  your home and make false promises we can't  keep, therefore wasting your time and causing  more hassle in the moving process.

    Raine and Co

    We are confident that the service and coverage  that we are able to offer you is the best available.  Raine and Co have been successfully selling  houses in Hertfordshire, London and abroad  since 1991 (when we first traded as Century 21  Estates) and have won many top awards for  service and levels of business.  Raine and Co are now one of the largest  Independent Agents in Hertfordshire who can  offer a greater coverage for your property than  most of our competitors, with radio advertising,  websites, newspapers and magazines, station  advertising and social media. We are also part of  the Relocation Agent Network, an organization  that can exchange properties and applicants with  over 650 offices in the United Kingdom.


    Having strong advertising is the key to selling any  property but your Estate Agent should also have  first-rate customer service skills to ensure that  enquires are handled correctly and therefore no  potential buyers are lost.  Unlike some other agents, we will regularly speak  to you to discuss the marketing progress of  your property. As soon as we gain feedback for  any viewings on your property you will receive  a telephone call or an e-mail from us with the  prospective purchasers response. This enables  us to better understand how potential buyers
    perceive your property and if there are any issues  we can rectify or any small changes in your  property you can make so it presents better.  We have dedicated and experienced Sales
    Progressors who will update you on all key  stages of your sale. Many sales have been  lost because no one has bothered to follow  them through and looked to handle problems  before they become issues and this is why we  take great pride in this area of our service and  our well below average fall through rate.


    With the Internet now providing around 98% of  our enquiries we ensure that buyers have instant  access to your property on demand over a huge  range of different websites, so to compliment our  newspaper and magazine advertising we now
    feature on a variety of websites.

    Raine and Co Auctions

    Some people think auctioneers only sell problem properties: properties with structural defects or legal issues but that is simply not true.

    Any property anywhere can be sold successfully by Network Auctions and a brief look at any of our auction catalogues confirms this. It is usually the circumstances of the seller, rather than a defective property that leads a client to us. Our clients value speed, transparency and closure and that's exactly what we provide.


    Speed: An auction sale is fast - the buyer commits legally on the fall of the gavel with an exchange of contracts secured by a 10% non-returnable deposit.

    Certainty: Auction sales remove the stresses and uncertainty of subject to contract transactions and there are no long drawn out negotiations or renegotiations. Unlike a private treaty sale, absolutely nothing is left to chance.

    Transparency: Of course, the great advantage of the auction process is that all interested parties can bid for your property with competition between determined bidders often producing exceptional results. The sale prices we achieve at auction often exceed our client's original expectations.

    Best Price: We have demonstrated time and time again that when local buyers compete against established professional investors at our London and Birmingham auctions we can achieve outstanding results for our clients

      Dear All. I am writing to say thank you for all the help you have given me in selling the house and trying to find something to buy as well. If it wasn't for you helping me I think I would have given up. Everytime I needed help you were there, going above and beyond to help. I think you are a very special team, you think about the person first not the money. So thank you again from both of us.

      Lingfield, Stevenage
      Without your dedication to persist where other agents had let us down this would never have happened. Your professionalism, together with keen dedication to your roles is second to none. As a team, at Raine and Co you all work fantastically together. You kept us informed every step of the way and the final week fighting to get an exchange date before going on holiday and to get school application forms in finally happened, but only due to your persistence in chasing solicitors and other agents up and down the chain. Thank you, all of you! You are the shining stars of the estate agent world and shine out among them all!
