Why choose Urban & Rural to sell your home?
  • paragraph

    We will always go the extra mile for you...
    image cannot be displayed

     

    Established in 1998 Urban & Rural have grown to become the largest independent award winning estate agency brand within the County. Our unique network of branches are made up of individually owned and operated branches who work together to provide a consistently high level of service and marketing. 
    We are extremely proud of our people, we only recruit the best professional agents who are passionate about property and as each branch is operated by the owner of the business who is committed to developing the business for the long term you will find a refreshing approach by teams building a strong local reputation for the long term, after all we want your recommendation! 


    The branches are supported by a central support team which provides training and business support to the branch owners which in turn enables them to focus solely on the business at branch level. This means that the team at your local branch will be focused on customer service and delivering results rather than being weighed down by less productive business matters.  



    And rest assured, once we agree a sale on your home because we believe that you should have a relationship with the same people throughout the process we do not package your sale off to a central team to progress it through, we handle it personally at branch level where you have already forged a trusting relationship. 

  • paragraph

    Traditional Values
    Our integrity, professionalism and experience in the property market ensure that we are well positioned to provide accurate and practical advice. We continually strive to provide an excellent service, personalised to suit your individual requirements.
  • paragraph

    Communication
    We value your business and will keep you fully informed at all stages, from your initial instruction through to completion of the sale you will be dealt with by your local team - Not a central administration team.
  • paragraph

    Instruct one branch - Instruct them all
    We have ten offices across Bedfordshire which are linked in real time sharing our properties and register of buyers. If you choose Urban & Rural you will have the entire team across our County-wide network of branches working on your behalf which will improve the exposure of your property to the wider market and result in achieving the best possible price.

    your respectful attitude when you first visited
    Thank you Ben for marketing and excellent presentation with attention to detail and just at the right price, your respectful attitude when you first entered my house impressed me and that's what made me decide for you to sell my house.

    Thank you peter for your patience and dedication you have worked tirelessly, constantly keeping me informed at every step of my house sale. At times I must have driven you mad with all my phone calls, you responded 'no, you can call as many times as you like'.

    You have always been polite and respectful. When my home In George Street is finalised you shall be invited to see the finished result.

     Valerie.

    Brigitte & Bill  


     p.s thanks for suggesting we look at the house, I really didn't think we would be interested.

  • Buyer Testimonial

    you have changed my opinion of estate agents

    Dear David,  


    It's nice to see a professional estate agent who cares about the little things. We've had a very pleasant experience buying through Urban and Rural. 
    I'm pleased to say that you have changed my opinion of estate agents! 

    Throughout our house purchase, your team have been friendly, knowledgable and capable.  


    It wasn't an easy house purchase thanks to our pedantic solicitor, but the guys in the office were always positive. We appreciated that. 


    Hopefully, this will be the house we stay in for the next 10 years or more, but when we do come to sell, I'll definitely call Urban and Rural. Thanks again and

    kind regards,  
    C.Maycock
