With more independently verified 5 Star reviews than the combined total for all other Hertford agents, find out what genuinely unique elements set the Shepherds home-selling service apart from the competition.
By putting the comments and feedback from hundreds of delighted clients at the very centre of the promotion for our services means we have no need of any bold unsubstantiated claims, gimmicks, tired cliches or glib mission statements; we can just present you with clarity, facts and hopefully some peace of mind.
With town leading selling success (based on Rightmove Intel statistics) and the sale price for over 60% of our property transactions in 2017 having achieved or exceeded the stated asking price, we can leave our clients confident in the knowledge that they couldn't have done any better.
Don't choose your agency representation until you compare the Shepherds home-selling service:
Competitive and clear Selling Fees of 1% + VAT - minimum fee £2,500 + VAT - NO SALE NO FEE.
A top tier estate agent can pay for themselves several times over in achieving a better price for their clients, reducing the hassle factor and more efficiently producing a better overall end-result and experience.
Client Friendly Contracts - Our simple 7 point contracts have NO small print, NO up-front agency fees or promotional costs and NO MINIMUM TIE-IN PERIOD. We are confident in the service we provide as being worthy of retaining client instructions on merit, not because they are contractually obliged and remember we operate on a no sale no fee basis.
In addition to being Hertford's longest established estate agent we are Hertford's most positively reviewed agency by far. Dip in to any of well over 400 x 5 Star reviews available on our website for your home-moving peace of mind, with not one review rating our service below 4 Stars and all confirming they would happily recommend Shepherds to family and friends.
top tip: reversing the reviews of any agency to show their worst reviews first will often give a different perspective and an indication as to the consistency of service on offer. How may your move be effected if you were on the receiving end of a 1, 2 even a 3 Star service?
Genuine local experts - Although at least three of us would like the graphic at the top of the page to be reflecting our ages, those numbers actually represent the years each of us have been working within estate agency in Hertford. In an industry in which the word "expert" is used a little too freely we put genuine local knowledge at your disposal and with our strength in depth we aren't just self-proclaimed "local experts" as with some of our competitors.
Hertford's most consistent team - the biggest single influencing factor in any business is the overall quality of personnel providing the service and at Shepherds we boast no fewer than 7 fully engaged and experienced staff members accountable within the town in which they live. Friendly local property people providing a professional, effective service and with enough of us to cope in all circumstances.
Our professional quality photography better showcases your home on the top property portals and in all promotion - because making consistently good first impressions for our clients makes a difference.
Enhanced Premium Listings are provided for all our properties on rightmove and stunning Matterport 3D Virtual Tours available on request; combined with our superb photography means our properties stand out on rightmove and in all online promotion.
Busy town centre premises open 7 days - Operating from a high street office enables us tap in to a relevant and locally based market place not explored if promotion is occurring solely online. Opening on a Sunday enables us to maintain momentum on situations developing as a result of activity generated on our busiest day of the week. We're also working harder, visible and accessible when needed. The evidence suggests that most successful agents provide a 7 days a week home-selling service.
Unlike most agents we regard our job as only half done through the introduction of a suitable buyer, a sale being negotiated and your property showing as sold subject to contract. To further secure your on-going sale process we also provide:
Dedicated sales progression - A genuinely comprehensive service taking your sale from under offer through to exchange and completion faster and more securely through the professional assistance provided by our highly regarded specialist, Gareth Jones MNAEA. Read literally hundreds of positive reviews specifically referring to Gareth's assistance in making our client's moves become a more efficient reality. No other agent has "a Gareth!"
The value of your home - The value of any property is ultimately the figure a purchaser is prepared to pay and only through a thorough exploration of the market can the very best value and sale be truly established. An agent will need to apply local knowledge and an awareness of fluctuating market conditions with comparable evidence to provide more accurate advice.
In the Hertford area most properties can be regarded as saleable with demand generally strong, and finding a purchaser can often be easily and readily achieved, whether you will have achieved the very best sale is dependent on many factors including the competency and application of the agent. With the best service and advice often paying for itself several times over in the price obtained and the manner in which a sale is realised and taken through to completion and your moving day.
Its' not just about achieving a sale it's about achieving the best possible sale combined with the customer experience; this sets one business apart from another.
Whatever the price you want ask - Once you've settled on a figure you are comfortable with asking on your sale, let Shepherds apply our 5 Star home-selling service on your behalf to achieve the best possible result.
