    There are few things in life as personal as your home, choose an estate agent with the same passionate approach to your home as you'.  

    A 44 year old family man Tim Bennett has over twenty years direct experience at every level of the Bath property market. This means there are few situations or market conditions he has not personally encountered and overcome.In his time, Tim has experienced many different approaches in the industry. Among other employments he managed for nearly seven and a half years the offices of Bath's oldest estate agents 'Pritchard and Partners'. Tim also worked locally, for ten years previously, for Andrews Estate Agents the country's largest independent agent. Such diversity of experience provides an interesting and unique overview of the local industry

    Today's estate agencies - A broken model?
    Tim believes the current business model for estate agency to be broken in its clients' eyes. Why else as a nation would we love buying and selling house so much, and yet hold estate agents generally in such low esteem?A champion of old fashioned, personal service, he believes (with some notable exceptions) today's agents have become no more than 'houseshops' and 'order takers'. Furthermore, these agents exist by only advertising (In the press, on the high street or the internet) rather than directly and actively 'selling' their clients homes to prospective buyers.Customers of estate agents, at all levels of the market, have increasingly experienced the replacement of spontaneous, proactive and creative marketing with an indiscriminate, uncaring and unstoppable 'one size fits all' approach. In short, agents are dealing with too many clients and none of them well.

    What makes us different?
    Tim Bennett and Associates is about dedicated, 'personal representation' of the seller whilst maintaining its 'duty of care' to all buyers. We value both parties as our clients of 'today' and 'tomorrow' respectively.To this end, we as a small, privately owned local business are intent on building and maintaining a personal reputation for integrity and the highest quality of customer service through promoting a carefully maintained portfolio of our clients' properties with a focused, proactive and creative approach tailored to them and their own individual needs.

      T im turned a nightmare into a manageable situation.Living a two hour drive from my mother's home with the responsibility of liquidating her assets to pay for her residential care, I was faced with a dilemma, my personal circumstances made it impossible to visit the property.

Arranged for the property clearance and cleaning. The changing of locks and final reading of utilities.I cannot speak more highly of the services provided by Tim, a truly personal experience.

      we always had his full care and attention
      Upper Swainswick, Nr. Bath 
      Completed December 2015
      SELLERS' RECOMMENDATION
      Tim's meticulous advice and support made the whole process of selling our house extremely straightforward and notably unstressful. He provided an exemplary service in marketing the house and achieved a price which was comfortably in excess of the valuations of three other Bath estate agents. Tim made himself always available, and we felt that we always had his full care and attention; there were no concerns we raised that he had not already thought of, and had in hand. However i t was in the management of the process after the offer had been accepted that we felt that Tim added exceptional value. He kept in very regular contact with all parties involved in the chain including solicitors and other estate agents to ensure that he was informed, and could keep the process moving fluidly. The whole transaction went through smoothly and without any of the delays that can be caused by tardy communications.Overall, we were absolutely delighted and would have no hesitation in using him again. It was b y far the most straightforward experience we have had in selling a property, and that was certainly down to his careful management.

      My interests were always paramount
      Chestnut Close, Westfield, Radstock Nr. Bath
      Completed July 2015
      SELLER'S RECOMMENDATION
      There are a plethora of estate agents in Bath, ranging from the large corporate's to the smaller independents.As a property investor I need to ensure my agent is acting on my behalf to get me the very best deal. This does not necessarily mean purely financial but viability, reliability and a common sense approach to finding the buyer.Tim Bennett is a very experienced, reliable and honest estate agent. My interests were always paramount and he went out of his way to sell my property. He didn't underprice to get a quick sale. On the contrary Tim worked incredibly hard to achieve the market price. He kept me informed of the process and made selling very easy. I seldom endorse people as most don't go above and beyond what is expected. I am very happy to make an exception for Tim

      gives good and considered advice
      London Road West, Batheaston
      Sale Completed March 2015
      SELLERS' RECOMMENDATION 
      We fully recommend Tim as a very professional and truly independent estate agent. He really went the extra mile for us and made the complicated, sometimes frustrating and unexpectedly emotional process of selling our house almost enjoyable! He has wide knowledge of the market and gives good and considered advice. He is very diplomatic and has such an amiable manner so you can totally trust him to represent you to other parties which I really valued. He also gives fast feedback; has good attention to detail; maintains communication and responds to worries and queries efficiently. I could go on but I will stop there. Thank you Tim.

      an easy and water tight exchange and completion
      The Cleeve Corsham
      Sale completed January 2014
      SELLERS RECOMMENDATION 
      "Having had mixed experiences of buying and selling houses, we knew that getting the right agent was key. Very early on, we knew we had chosen well. Tim Bennett exudes confidence, and his experience allows one to almost relax! Details that we would overlook, were picked out by Tim, and a strategy planned and executed to ensure an easy and water tight exchange and completion. For those that read this and wonder which agent is for them, there is no need to look any further. This is coming from someone that does not easily recommend anyone. A great result.

      Larkhall Square
      Sale Completed September 2013 
      SELLERS' RECOMMENDATION 
      Tim brought a personal friendly and practical approach to selling my house. His communication with both vendor and buyer is fantastic having been on both sides of the coin. He has a very level headed approach and invaluable knowledge of the Bath property market. If you are looking to sell your house but would like to avoid the commission chasing rat run of certain estate agents, I can assure you Tim Bennett is a cut above and refreshingly genuine. It's just a shame he doesn't sell cars or insurance!!

      a "hands free" sale process.
      Hensley Road, Bath
      Testimonial Recieved June 2013 
      (Sale completed June 2012)
      SELLER'S RECOMENDATION 
      "We wanted to sell our rental property and every agent we had approached just didn't get the drivers in our situation. We wanted to recover the property value and avoid lost rental costs; whilst living remote from the property needed a "hands free" sale process. Tim was recommended as being reliable, extremely capable and knowledgeable and our initial discussions proved this to be the case. Tim immediately grasped the financial impact of the waning market conditions for us - marketing time was lost value! Tim also understood that since we were not locally based we wanted "hands off" sale management and he took this burden on board with enthusiasm. Tim proposed, implemented and managed a targeted, and rapid campaign which secured offers rapidly, and completion within a month. His communication to us of the highs/lows and necessary actions was impeccable and ensured a smooth stress free sale from our perspective. Overall working with Tim added value to our sale by minimising the sale period, made the sale pain free and a pleasurable experience.

      professional and  friendly approach 
      London Road West, Batheaston 
      Sale Completed March 2015
      BUYERS' RECOMMENDATION
      We recently completed on a house purchase through Tim Bennett and Associates Estate Agents. We had unfortunately had some bad experiences with Estate Agents mismanaging issues arising in a previous purchase. We were feeling rather cautious when we first rang Tim however our concerns were soon allayed, despite it being late on a Saturday afternoon, as Tim answered our call with enthusiasm and friendliness. We were given clear information from the start and Tim always did his best to organise viewings of the property at the soonest and most convenient time for all. From the offset Tim made himself available by telephone and email, sometimes at unsociable hours, to respond to queries and even to facilitate a surveyor visit during the Christmas period. We were aware that Tim was acting for the vendors however we always felt that our views and questions were represented fully and clearly and that our experience was important to him as well.There was a complicated chain of purchasers but Tim managed this very well and we were always kept informed of progress. We never had the feeling of being rushed or harassed, as had happened with another agency. We always received a reliable and courteous service from Tim, which made the process much easier throughout. We can confidently endorse Tim and his very professional and friendly approach to Estate Agency.

He was easily contactable throughout the process, always reassuring and kept both himself and us abreast of what was happening. He has kept in touch after the sale completed , finding the answers to questions that we had about the property - really above and beyond the call. Tim is personable and easy to get along with, if we ever think of selling he will definitely be our agent of choice.
