    Selling Your Home With Saddlers
    image cannot be displayed

    When a property comes onto the market with us, all of our staff will have visited the property so that whoever you speak to at our office will have an extensive knowledge of each home we are marketing, enabling us to answer almost any question.

    All of our properties are advertised immediately by contacting potential buyers by phone, email, Twitter and using extensive internet coverage via, amongst others, Saddlersresidential.co.uk, Rightmove, Prime Location, Zoopla and The London Office.

    Our property presentation is second to none, using high quality glossy property brochures including professional photography, provided at our cost, not the client's.

    We also market all of our properties, however large or small, through our London Office situated in St James's Place, in the heart of London. The London Office opens our properties up to a considerably larger audience of London and International buyers further enhancing the coverage Saddlers is able to provide.

    Marilyn Froud - Sales Advisor
    Marilyn started working in estate agency with a large corporate firm 18 years ago and has since worked for independent family-run agency practices. She attended Pitman's College in her school days and worked as administrative assistant and secretary for other companies prior to going into estate agency and that experience stood her in good stead for the world of estate agency. 

     Her friendly approach to buyers and sellers helps to keep things running smoothly on viewings and during ongoing sales and her love of period properties (having renovated several properties including an Oast House, Coach House and a Period Oak Barn) is fuelled by her enthusiasm for her position at Saddlers. She enjoys the challenge of matching the right buyer with the right property. 

     Marilyn has lived locally for 45 years and raised her family in the country, having spent all of her own childhood holidays on a family friend's farm. A keen horsewoman since the age of 7, she now supports her daughter in rearing and breaking her competition horses. Marilyn owns a smallholding raising hens, ducks, geese and also has a Miniature Shetland Pony called Thomas. She is currently training her Border Collie pup, Skye. Trained as a pianist at the young age of 4, Marilyn still has a love of music today, especially pop music.

      Very well advised and supported by all

      "Dear Rob,

      I am writing to thank you and Paul and all your staff for the successful sale of my late mother's house.

      It has been an emotional journey from start to finish. It was difficult making the decision to sell in the first place then selecting the right buyer.

      Of course, I wanted to sell at an appropriate price but I was concerned also about the new owners. I am delighted that the property is to become a first home for a young couple and the we managed to agree on a fair price.

      I felt that I was very well advised and supported by all of you throughout this process that has come to a most satisfactory conclusion.

      Thank you again.

      Miss D"
