    Marketing
    image cannot be displayed

    93% of buyers now search for property online*, giving every estate agent access to every type of buyer, from every possible location. What now determines a good estate agent is no longer the location or number of their offices, but their ability to influence the attentions of the massive online audience for the benefit of their clients.

    henleys' properties stand out from the crowd. Every property we market, (whatever its value and whoever the client) receives the same first-class on-line marketing package. This includes a professional photo shoot, an RICS standard floorplan and a land registry site-map. Unlike our competitors we offer these services free of charge and without any contractual catch.

    The attention to detail we put into every property can be viewed by browsing our stock on rightmove and we encourage potential clients to make a comparison against any of our competitors.

    Other marketing includes professionally printed brochures, for sale boards, social media and advanced email distribution. Again, all provided free of charge and for every client.

    Service

    Our staff are organised differently to any other estate agency. We have an excellent staff-to-property ratio and by removing ourselves from the distractions of the high-street we are able to work in a more controlled and efficient fashion. This allows us more time to register buyers properly and to stay in regular touch with our clients. It also allows us time to follow-up every viewing.

    We are open 7days a week, 361 days a year, and until 7pm each week day. We have staff available to accompany viewings every day, and each week the sales team meet before hours to review the performance of every property we have for sale.

    We choose not to employ any temporary, viewings, weekend or secretarial staff and each member of the sales team visits every new instruction before it is launched - meaning buyer enquiries can be handled with confidence.

  • paragraph

    Valuations
    image cannot be displayed

    Our valuations are provided free of charge and are normally offered with at least three examples of comparable evidence.

    We record and compare our valuation accuracy to make sure we are in tune with the market and these accuracy figures are available to clients and potential clients on request.

    Results

    Every estate agent we compete with makes impressive claims about the quality of their service and marketing and we are no different. What sets us apart is that we are accountable to the service we actually provide, asking for just ten days notice from our clients at any point.

    This arrangement gives the control to our clients and puts the onus on us to provide a service which is consistent with what we are pitching.

    In spite of this accountability we have superb levels of client retention and satisfaction, and our steady growth since our launch in 2006 has come principally from unsolicited repeat and recommended business.

    Given that almost all property sales introductions are now made on-line, we believe the location of our instructions relative to our office has almost no bearing on our ability to achieve good results for our clients.

    As such, we are happy to consider new business from clients in almost any location within twenty miles of our office.

  • Seller Testimonial

    HENLEYS LEVEL OF SERVICE HAS BEEN OUTSTANDING - THEY MANAGED TO SELL OUR PROPERTY EVEN THOUGH WE HAD TAKEN IT OF THE MARKET DUE TO NO OFFERS, WE HAD LET THE PROPERTY AND THEY MANAGED TO SELL IT WITH TENANT IN SITU. EXCELLENT QUALITY LITERATURE

  • Seller Testimonial

    We have bought, sold & rented. Our Agent experience has rarely been positive-so imagine our delight when we encountered Henleys. We have scored them excellent in every area because that genuinely was our experience. They have our strongest recommendation.

  • Seller Testimonial

    Henley's have proved to be one of the best Estate Agents I have ever dealt with. A refreshingly hard working, honest and open policy, in an industry shrouded in mistrust; they should be highly commended at the very least.

  • Seller Testimonial

    In recent years I have dealt with several Estate Agents and I have to say that Henleys are by far superior to any other Agent I have ever used in every aspect of their Agency. I cannot recommend them highly enough. - D. Blanch

    The whole team were familiar with my property so viewings were done professionally. I really thought they were working with me to sell rather than working for a Commission fee regardless of my needs - S. and J. Bates

    Dear Tom, William and Gerry, David and I would like to thank you all for looking after us so well whilst selling our hous; you made what is a stressful time so stress free.

  • Seller Testimonial

    Dear Will and Tom, Further to the completion of the above property, I wish to reiterate our thanks regarding the professional service and performance your firm has provided from instruction to completion. Our view is, until exchange of contracts the property is not sold. Your firm exceeded our expectations in working to achieve this. Your ethos of working for the vendor manifested itself in your firm's excellent performance. Your firm has brought a new standard to Colchester
  • Seller Testimonial

    Dear Gerry, Thank you for all your hard work and efforts in marketing our house. We have been extremely happy with henleys' level of customer service and professionalism - which has been like a breath of fresh air - and we wish you every success for the future
  • Seller Testimonial

    To all at henleys, I felt I had to put pen to paper having just sold my house through you. My husband and I are habitual sellers/buyers and, over the last 15 years, have bought and sold many properties and have had many dealings with a number of estate agents. Because of this we know how traumatic it can be when a chosen agent proves to be inadequate, and how wonderful it is to find a good one. We wish henleys were trading 15 years ago! We would have stayed with you.

    We have found all of henleys' team professional attentive and proactive in all our dealings with them. Honest advice was always given and we have felt our interests, as the sellers, have always been paramount. As well as a very professional presentation of our house, attended viewings and honest feedback and advice, the most enlightening aspect I have appreciated is the continued communication.

    It has been a pleasure working with henleys. We would recommend you 100% and will definitely use you in the future. - J. & M. Le Messurier
  • Seller Testimonial

  • Seller Testimonial

    Very well thank you. Sam was especially brilliant we are really grateful to him.
  • Seller Testimonial

    From day 1 to moving day the information given proved to be of great value and thanks to yourselves we were able to buy the property we dreamed of after you sold our property in just 4 months
  • Seller Testimonial

    Absolutely brilliant! Great service, great team. I'm recommending you to any one who will listen. Thanks again.
  • Seller Testimonial

    Hand on heart I found Henleys the best estate agents during our recent house purchasing. Emails and phone calls were returned promptly which certainly couldn't be said of other agents! They kept in regular touch, especially as the sale was nearer to completion. Professional, helpful staff. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend their services to friends and colleagues.
  • Seller Testimonial

    We have recently purchased a house through henleys. Even though there were some difficulties with the transaction henleys were always aware of the situation and pushed it along wherever they could.

    We would have no hesitation in using henleys again and would be the first to recommend them should the opportunity arise.

  • Seller Testimonial

    (henleys worked) Very well indeed.
  • Seller Testimonial

    Henleys were a great firm to deal with. A firm for the modern day - fresh, IT relevant, hands on and always available 7 days a week. They sold our property in Stratford St Mary within a couple of weeks, achieving a good market price, and then ensured the sale process went smoothly right up to completion.

    And, finally, their fees were extremely competitive and good value. We have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking to sell in their area.

  • Seller Testimonial

    (henleys worked) Very well with some trying situations namely two sets of incompetent solicitors. Sam and Gerry were both very patient and professional and really tried to help at every available opportunity - I am very pleased with the service that they provided.
  • Seller Testimonial

    We were very happy with the service and support received by henleys the whole way through our house sale. I especially liked the fact that everyone from the company viewed our house, so they were all able to able to advise potential buyers first hand. I would definitely recommend Henley's to anyone else selling.
  • Seller Testimonial

    I would like to thank Henley (particularly Gerry) for their professionalism and work to ensure the sale progressed. Going the extra mile to obtain information and chase when required ensured the sale completed.
  • Seller Testimonial

    Sale was processed efficiently and professionally. Thank you Henleys!
  • Seller Testimonial

    I can thoroughly recommend henleys. From the initial visit to the completion of sale, there was easy communication and any queries were dealt with promptly. All the staff knew the house and the details of the sale, which helped when you contacted the company.The staff are professional and instil confidence.
  • Seller Testimonial

    Henleys provided an outstanding service. Everyone worked really hard to market and attend viewings for the property. From the outset, always professional, regular communication and I would not hesitate to recommend them and use them again myself.
