Residential Sales
  • paragraph

    When you come to work loving what you do, it is much easier to do a very good job! With a stable and consistent team who are all vastly experienced not only in property sales, but living in the local area, we commonly deal with old clients over, over & over again. There is nothing like visiting a business years later seeing a familiar face, being remembered including the finest details of the last transaction that we shared together. We pride ourselves on not being the cheapest agent, but when you analyse the service we provide, along with the final results achieved we feel that we offer the very best value for money.

    Unlike many agents we don't rely on taking every possible property that we see to the market; to maintain the high levels of service that we do, we can only deal with a certain number of properties at a time.

    All of our market appraisals are based on recent activity, we draw on the very latest factual evidence in the market place; unlike many we won't pluck unsubstantiated figures from the air.

    Why not call us now to discuss what we can do for you?

    Residential Lettings

    We excel in finding our landlord clients the very best tenants, be that for a fully managed property or tenant find. We accept it as a privilege that we are being asked to manage and look after your most valuable assets. Unlike many agents, we will not just accept the first tenant that shows an interest; we will show all potential tenants, give you a full breakdown of their circumstances enabling an informed decision to be made about the best tenant for your property. It is no coincidence that we experience so few issues over non or late payment of the rent, this is truly remarkable in relation to the hundreds of properties that we manage.

    Why not call us to arrange a no obligation meeting to find out why so many clients use us again & again and recommend so many of their close friends to us.

    Land & New Homes

    Since our inception in August 1993, we have worked tirelessly to earn the very best reputation in the market place for Land & New Homes.

    For many developers, be it small local or large national we are their first 'port of call' for advice on what type of property to build and pricing structure for up and coming developments in the area.

    In the coming year 2016 into 2017 we believe we have the largest and most varied selection of new properties in the area. From a one bedroom apartment in a village location, a characterful house in a listed building conversion, to a large detached family house in a gated development; if you want a brand new dwelling we have something for everybody.

    We have also proven to have a special skill identifying areas of development that have been overlooked, from an oversized back garden to a brownfield opportunity that nobody seems to want.

    To summarise, if you have set your heart on your next home being brand new or you think you have a development opportunity that needs investigating, then why not invite us to come and take look? As always, an appointment or meeting with us is totally without obligation and will cost you nothing.

    Financial Services

    Are you tired of visiting Estate Agents and before they have even said 'hello' they are pushing to pass you to their in-house, supposedly, 'independent financial advisor'? We never forget that the initial reason that you walked in the door probably wasn't to arrange your next mortgage!

    An additional service or even to compliment one of the services listed above, our specialist advisors can look at a complete range of products from across the mortgage market; we have sourced the very best in advice from an Independent company who have a team of advisors that share the same ethos as SBK. Time and time again they source the very best deal from the thousands that are available based on client requirements alone, instead of the scheme that pays the biggest commission. For a no obligation, confidential chat why not call us now? You have nothing to lose!

    Peter French - Sales Coordinator 
    Peter has one of the key roles at SBK, coordinating the many sales that the residential sales team arrange throughout the year. We are unaware of any other local agent who has a dedicated full time sales coordinator in the office, it is all he does and he is worth his weight in gold. With Peter's great experience and enthusiasm in this sector he tries everything within his power to ensure that all of the transactions run as smoothly as possible; Peter knows that keeping all of our clients fully updated and progressed with all aspects of their sale chain, is the secret to SBK's very low fall through rate.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      not just good but absolutely outstanding
      We used SBK to sell our property in Autumn 2015. We chose them carefully because we were aware that their commission was not the cheapest on the market. However, we were highly impressed with the services they offer and the approach of the staff. So we signed up with them. I have sold quite a few houses over the years and I know from experience, that the signature on the dotted line is often the point where service begins to become much more mediocre than the estate agent promised. To our delight, this was absolutely not the case with SBK. With everything, from the photographs and details, to viewings and then on to navigating the sale through occasionally choppy waters, SBK were not just good but absolutely outstanding. They were professional, dedicated, effective and trustworthy. And - icing on the cake - they negotiated an excellent price for the property so, in the end, I don't think they were expensive. We have now moved out of the area but, should we ever sell again in the locality I would go immediately to SBK without hesitation. I was a very satisfied customer. As I always like to check things, I am happy for SBK to give my telephone number to anyone who would like to ring to discuss my testimonial.
    • Seller Testimonial

      Perfect service - We will be back!
      We originally brought own first house from SBK and 4 years later didn't hesitate to go back to sell! Luke turned up and the story began again. Perfect service and always kept In the from buying to selling. When we decided to move again (hopefully not too soon!)... We will be back!
    • Seller Testimonial

      SBK played to its key selling point
      SBK found a buyer for our house, at a good price, within a couple of weeks of it coming to market. The key strengths of the property were in respect of its potential for expansion, supported by existing planning permission. SBK played to this key selling point in both targeting potential buyers and in sales material, which was really well presented. I would definitely recommend SBK to anyone looking to sell their house

Phil managed to find a buyer within 24 hours of marketing the property for full asking price!!! 100% satisfied, as the team at SBK, they drove the negotiations and got the sale over the line, tying together all the loose ends which in Phil and the team have the highest professional standards and are excellent at their jobs.

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      with the helpful staff answering any questions
      We initially approached SBK regarding a property which had already been sold. The helpful agent steered us towards another very similar style property which was just about to appear on the market. After a swift viewing, with the helpful staff answering any questions we had about the area, we were luckily able to make the purchase seamlessly and quickly with minimal hassle along the way. I Would highly recommend SBK as professional, knowledgeable agents.
    • Buyer Testimonial

      very professional and helpful
      Everyone at SBK has been very professional and helpful. Would recommend friends and family to use them as the have great knowledge of the local area. Luke is a really great estate agent and was always happy to show us round properties at a convient time and as soon as the came on the market. Lovely team from looking to property through to exchanging contracts. Thanks for your help.
    • Buyer Testimonial

      The team were once again attentive and helpful
      As first time buyers, we found SBK to be the most credible Property Consultants we approached. The support they gave to myself and my partner was second to none, as they were always willing to take the time to provide the information we needed or clarify the processes we were going through. This is why when the time came for us to move, we were excited to approach SBK to manage the sale of our property - and they certainly delivered! After only one day of viewings we had accepted an offer, for no less than our asking price, and we were absolutely thrilled. The team were once again attentive and helpful; never failing to have time for us when we needed advice throughout the duration of the sale.
