Buying Through Us
  • paragraph

    Initial contact with us will usually be via a website, over the phone or in person at one of our nine offices. You can continue to get up-to-date lists of available properties on an ad hoc basis but you may prefer to register with us. This will allow us to send you details of properties just as they come to the market or when prices are revised.

    Our applicant database is web-based and shared instantly across all nine offices so that you need only sign-up once to be matched with any property that fits your requirements.

    You can register, update your details and requirements or de-register through this website. You will receive notification of new properties via e-mail and can download full colour particulars from your web portfolio.

    Alternatively, you can also register by contacting one of our offices where a member of staff will take your details and discuss the current market and properties available with you. We endeavour to get all staff to see the property but, where this has not been possible, someone who has seen it can ring you back.

    If any property is of interest please contact the relevant office to discuss it further and to make arrangements for a viewing.

    Once you make an offer it will be submitted in writing to the vendors. The staff will need to collect personal details from you, if not already known, such as the position of your own sale and availability of finance.

    We will advise you of the outcome of any offer. Once an offer is accepted, we will notify your solicitors at the same time as the vendors. Because agents can speak to both buyers' and sellers' solicitors we will keep in touch with you during the sale process with updates, up to the point at which contracts are exchanged .

    Following exchange of contracts we will liaise with you and the vendor about the hand over of keys at completion. This usually takes place in our office but with planning a member of staff may be able to meet you at the property.

    Jeremy Smith - Regional  Manager

    It is fair to say that Jeremy has estate agency in his blood as his father, Frank Smith, is a founder member of the Dorset estate agency Fortnum Smith and Banwell. Jeremy started his own career in 1987 with Yeovil based estate agents R B Taylor & Sons before moving to Connells in December 1992. He worked his way through to Area Partner level looking after eight branches in Bristol before moving back to Yeovil to take his Connells branch into the top ten in the Connells group in 2006.

    After 20 years with Connells Jeremy decided he required a new adventure and was thrilled to join our team in Beaminster as he has strong connections with the area; his parents have lived in Broadwindsor for thirty years. Outside of selling lots of property Jeremy's main passion is fishing and he has travelled all over the world in pursuit of quarry and his other main interest is Arsenal Football Club where he is a regular at the Emirates.
