    Photography

    "Do your Estate Agency photographs look like they've been taken by an Amateur ?"

  • paragraph

    At Stephensons only the best will do therefore we organise a professional photographer to visit your home to help us sell the best features of your property.

    Most Estate Agents use their own untrained staff to take your photos. It is widely considered among estate agents that by taking their own photographs this saves time & money however this does not fully showcase your property. We believe photography is one of the most important components of our marketing package and that is why we only employ the best photographers in the region to maximise your asset.

    Remember the age old saying "a picture paints a thousand words"

      They are the only company I would consider
      My property went to the market in September and I picked up the keys to my new humble abode in December. Having previously marketed with a different agent for a number of months Stephensons photographer really showed off my properties best features which I believe allowed them to sell my property so quickly. Sarah kept me up to date at all times and was always happy to help. Stephensons conducted in an extremely professional manner and I have already recommended them to friends and family. They are the only company I would consider using in the future. Ms L - Holgate.

      Nothing was too much trouble
      I employed Stephensons to sell my property and I found them to be very professional, courteous and efficient. Nothing was too much trouble and despite my buyer losing their initial purchasers in the chain, Stephenson efforts kept the sale progressing and whole process took place within 12 weeks from instruction to completion. I would have no hesitation in recommending and would rate Stephensons 11 out of 10. Mr M - York.

      Sarah went that extra mile to ensure the sale
      From me booking the valuation to completing on the sale I was highly impressed with the service Stephensons gave. Oliver gave me honest advice from the outset, their marketing was dynamic and modern and although there were problems during the conveyance if it wasn't for Sarah going the extra mile I am sure the sale would of fallen through. Mrs R - Osbaldwick

      Oliver was a breath of fresh air
      We were very impressed with Oliver's knowledge and expertise, his advice was clear, honest and most importantly realistic. He was a breath of fresh air and a pleasure to deal with. Although we decided not to sell, Stephensons are the agent we would choose should we change our minds. Mr & Mrs C - York

      Sarah, thanks again to you and all the team at Stephensons for all the effort and help that was put in to our sale. Although the value of our property was relatively low the amount of hard work you put in made us feel as if the house was worth a lot more then £140k to you. We couldn't of done it without you.

      A huge comfort
      Sarah, thanks for all you help over the past few months; it was a huge comfort at times knowing that you were coordinating with all parties and helping things move along (if only my solicitor had been as proactive...). I must say I've been especially impressed with Stephensons - from Oliver's first visit, to the marketing you produced for the house, and not least the support you've provided me at just about every stage thereafter. A big thank you to you all. I'd certainly recommend you and use you again in the future. Mr C- Bootham, York

      Always bright and cheerful
      Dear Nick, Just a quick note thanking you and all your staff regrading the sale of my cottage. All of the office staff have been good to deal with, but in particular I must mention Richard who i have had the most dealings with, always bright and cheerful, and Sarah who at times has had to act more like an agony aunt to me such were the stress levels!!! Estate Agents do come in for some stick, so I think it is only right that praise should be handed out when due. Mr W -  York

      We achieved "best value"
      Hello Oliver A short e mail to thank you and your team for the professionalism and advice in undertaking the above sale on the Association's behalf. As you aware, there was a need to ensure we achieved "best value" and by that I do not mean just price although clearly you had to be competitive. This I believe was achieved through your initial and ongoing guidance throughout the transaction and by ensuring I was kept up to speed with happenings. I am acutely aware via regular updates that your team were ensuring matters were not left in abeyance. Please pass on my thanks to all concerned including Ian Reynolds. Suffice to say i would not hesitate in utilising the services of Stephensons in the future. Kind regards and a happy new year. Mr L - York

      I couldn't recommend Stephensons more highly
      I couldn't recommend Stephensons more highly. I felt they did more work in getting our house move through as quick as possible than our solicitors, Oliver got us full asking price for our house which was a lot higher than other agents quoted us, and Sarah worked very hard keeping all parties up to date. thank you all Miss B - Clifton Without

      Cant tell you how grateful we are for everything
      Hi Sarah, Stefan and I would like to say a huge thank-you for all your patience and support over the last 7 months. There were times when we never thought we'd reach the point of exchange, but you remained calm and positive throughout despite the numerous issues along the way. It was fantastic to be able to finally tell our son that we are moving (we hadn't wanted to disrupt him by telling him earlier in case it didn't happen), and to have a weekend where we can finally relax a little. This move is so important to us, so we cannot tell you how grateful we are for everything. Mr & Mrs S - York
