Simpson and Partners’ Raunds operation has gone from strength to strength since opening their office at 37 Brook Street and have now established themselves the town's Number One agent. The determination to provide the best customer service underpins the entire Simpson and Partners ethos in both residential sales and the lettings operation. So the company guarantees to open seven days a week with the longest opening hours of any agent in the town. The company can now boast a local network of nine offices and now have offices in Northampton, Kettering, Corby, Thrapston, Burton Latimer, Rushden, Kimbolton, Raunds and have sole selling rights to one of the UK’s most exciting developments at Priors Hall Park.
The company now boasts more than half the For Sale and Sold Boards overall in Raunds and Stanwick, giving a clear market leading advantage in the area. We have staff dedicated to sales as well as lettings in order to provide the best possible focus on our quality of service. We do of course offer 24hr marketing via our various websites, however, when it comes to buyers wishing to view homes, we need to make ourselves available so as to ensure that we are on hand to accompany that viewing.... a service that is not only preferred by vendors, but also buyers, as they are able to give honest and immediate feedback to us, which is invaluable. As such, we are open 7 days a week. We can also be contacted 24hrs per day by email. See our contact page for our email addresses. Between 9am and 7pm weekdays. 9am to 5pm on Saturdays and 11am to 3pm every Sunday.
Raunds is situated in the heart of East Northamptonshire with excellent road and rail links giving easy accessibility to all parts of the country. Raunds and its closest neighbour, the village of Stanwick about a mile away, boast a population of around 10,000 and feature excellent schools and local amenities.
Many residents work in the nearby towns of Wellingborough and Rushden and a significant proportion commute as far afield as Cambridge and even London via the 50 minute rail service from Wellingborough mainline station. The town has managed to combine the tradition of an historic market town – its popular market is still held every Friday – with ongoing regeneration that has seen many new homes sympathetically introduced into the locality over the last few years.
The Raunds office is under the careful Management of Karl Kolodziejczyk. Born and raised in East Northamptonshire he gained broad experience of all aspects of the business through successfully managing branches for both independent and corporate estate agencies. Karl understands the benefits to clients that both corporate and independent estate agencies offer. He now brings the best of both to Simpson & Partners. His enthusiastic, professional approach and fresh approach to estate agency has continued to be the success of the business through a policy of providing the highest levels of dedicated customer service and expert advice on current market conditions.
Senior Negotiator Brendan May brings a mix of experience in his own right. With many notable references for providing excellent service to vendors and purchasers Brendan offers a dedication to clients that cannot be matched by many agents in the country.
Judith Peasnell heads up the Residential Lettings department and also brings expert local knowledge and many years of property management experience to the role. The most experienced lettings agent in Raunds there are not many properties let in Raunds that Judith dosent manage.
The office is also assisted by administrators Sarah Nunley, who has many years experience within the company’s Thrapston, Burton Latimer and Kimbolton offices.
We pride ourselves in our communication, feedback as well as honest and open communication.
Keeping you up to date
You can have the best marketing in the world but if we don’t tell you what’s happening, what’s the point? We’ll keep you up-to-date on who has been looking at your property, viewing feedback and, of course, once you’ve accepted an offer we’ll progress a sale and make sure you know what’s happening at all times.
We’ve researched what works when marketing your home to prospective buyers and tenants. The two best methods by far are a) picking up the phone and calling buyers and tenants when you instruct us and b) advertising your home on the Internet. Of course, for sale boards, property details, newspaper advertising and a network of offices all help too.
We have all of them and we really focus our attention on what works best for our customers.
We are also one of the founder members of the Ombudsman for Estate Agents and, on the lettings side, we’re members of the Association of Residential Letting Agents. Both offer a speedy review of any complaint and have the power to award compensation
