    About Arden
    Arden Estates was formed in 2010, with the aim of setting new standards in all areas of the way an Estate Agent operates.

    We are proud to be leading the way in each town in which we operate. We believe that by focusing on what our customers actually want, and what is right for them, we can build a loyal and committed relationship.

    By investing and embracing all that has changed in our world in recent times, we never stop trying and testing new marketing methods.

    Our in-house marketing team are constantly researching new methods and ways to further promote your property in this technically driven new age.

    If something new will increase our service level to you by just 1%, then we will incorporate it, as customer satisfaction is crucial to our success.

    It's these critical 1%s that make the difference. These days, people seem to reduce the price of a house as if it isn't real money. However, we believe that the extra services and the multimedia advertising we buy for you is the reason we achieve such a high percentage of your asking prices.

    We won't just advertise your property on the internet and wait for the phone to ring, we provide a comprehensive service with an experienced team of friendly people working for you constantly and proactively to achieve your goal.

    You want your property to stand out from the crowd to give people a reason to view it.

    We don't make false claims or pretend to be something that we're not; if you want confirmation about how good we are, what we're all about and why we are different, then ask one of our clients or call us for an informal chat ...we'd love to hear from you.

    Help With Your Onward Purchase

    We do more than just sell your home. If you need any help or advice with your move we are always just a phone call away.

    Members of the Property Ombudsman Scheme

    Being members of the Property Ombudsman Scheme, provides peace of mind that you are dealing with professionals that have your best interests at heart at every stage of the process.

    Conveyancing

    The successful sale of your property can be dependent on the instruction of an efficient and experienced solicitor. So, it can really pay off to do some research and make a decision before you put your property on the market, as this may help to avoid delays.

Information for potential buyers
  • paragraph

    Getting Started...
    Whether you're a first time buyer, a home mover or a landlord you'll need to know what your budget is and how much money you can borrow. We can help you with this by setting up a consultation with one of our fully qualified independent Mortgage Advisors, where you'll soon know how much you can afford and what the monthly payments will be. Our advisors will also provide you with what's called an 'Agreement in Principle' certificate. You'll need this as proof that you can obtain a mortgage to show other estate agents before they will accept an offer from you.

    Viewings
    Now that you know how much you can borrow and you've got your proof of mortgage, you can start viewing properties. You need to know which areas you want to live in, how many bedrooms you need, your maximum budget and which type of property you want. We will enter this into our system and you'll be kept constantly updated with our latest properties via text, email and phone.

    Make an Offer
    Once you've found your dream property, you'll need to make an official offer through our sales negotiators.

    Choose a Solicitor
    You will need to instruct a solicitor to carry out conveyancing. We can arrange for our recommended solicitors to take care of the sales progression. We only work with like-minded, forward thinking solicitors, so you can feel rest assured that you'll be in safe hands with a competitively priced and efficient service.

    Apply For Your Mortgage
    Now that you've got an offer accepted on the property you wish to purchase, it is imperative that we apply for your mortgage as soon as possible to avoid unnecessary delays. It can all be done within an hour and generally you'll need the following proofs:
    -Photographic ID & Proof of Address
    -3 Months Pay Slips or 2 Year Accounts
    -Proof of Deposit

    Sales Progression
    Your file will be assigned to one of our sales progression team who will endeavour to look after your every need through the buying process. They will advise you and negotiate on your behalf throughout this process, keeping you informed every step of the way.

    Valuation or Survey
    When the mortgage company has approved the initial mortgage application, they will instruct a survey for Mortgage purposes, to ascertain the condition and value of the property. Your chosen lender will contact us to arrange the inspection, and if everything is satisfactory, you can expect your mortgage offer to follow shortly after.

    Mortgage Offer
    Following the successful completion of the survey, your offer will be produced and sent out to you and your solicitor.

    Signing of Contracts
    Once the solicitors have received all the information requested, prior to exchange of contracts, both sellers and purchasers will be sent the contract to be signed in readiness for the exchange.

    Exchange of Contracts
    Once everybody in the chain has signed the contracts and solicitors have received everything needed, they will then instruct a formal exchange of contracts. All parties need to agree on a completion date and then the solicitors can exchange on the property, which means everything is legally binding.

    Completion
    This is the big day when all parties in the chain move. The keys will only be released once the transferred funds have reached the sellers solicitors (usually around midday). As estate agents, we often hold keys to the property prior to completion and we can only release these once we have had confirmation from the solicitors that the chain has completed.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      Arden have been nothing but excellent
      "Arden have been nothing but excellent the whole way through the process of selling our home. We had valuations from a number of agents, with Arden being the highest. They did a fantastic job of marketing our property and agreed a sale, at a price we were happy with, within four days of our property being on the market. Had we gone with the other agents we would have lost out on a significant amount of money. All of the team at Arden have been extremely kind and helpful throughout the entire process, Romily's enthusiasm and knowledge made the marketing of our property with Arden a no-brainer, Sharon did a great job of putting the sales particulars together, with wonderful photographs provided by their photographer. Jason did a great job of keeping us up to date with viewings and feedback and once the sale was agreed Lara worked hard to make sure that our agreed sale went through to completion without complication, for which were are very grateful. I would recommend Arden to anyone and I wouldn't consider using anyone else in the future. Thank you!" - Samuel Mansfield (January 2021)
    • Seller Testimonial

      we knew we had chosen the right estate agent
      "From the minute Romily arrived to complete a valuation we knew we had chosen the right estate agents; she was great! The service she promised then continued throughout, with many people working tirelessly to help us, not only sell our properties but to bag our dream home. They were so helpful & efficient and often went above and beyond. They were always friendly when we had to speak to them on the phone or visit the office and we genuinely felt they cared. Special mentions must go to: Lara at Rubery & Kirsty at Bromsgrove. We also used Becky as our mortgage advisor who was just as superb. If we ever move again - we would definitely be using Arden and would recommend to anyone!" - Adam Shepherd (December 2020)
    • Seller Testimonial

      Romily was very honest and open to us
      "Started off 'just looking' at homes and then I cheekily enquired about one, not even an hour later got a call to discuss our current situation and not even 9 days later our house was SOLD! Before we were even put live on their website, I'm in absolute awe with the Rubery team. Romily and Lara were fantastic. Romily came round to evaluate our home, she was very honest and open to us which we respected. We found a property and I called Romily to discuss how to go forward with it, it wasn't an Arden property, however she was more than willing to talk with the other estate agent and give us insight and tips going forward as our house wasn't sold yet (but we fell in love with the property!) Lara was very flexible, she rang to say a young lady saw our for sale sign and wanted to take a look next Saturday. But as I was very eager I asked Lara if it was possible to do on the day which she sorted out no problem. She was also very communicative throughout the whole process, which I valued. The photographer who took pictures of our home was friendly and tidy, I wish I got his name but please give him a well done from us. Very professional and did a fantastic job. Thank you so much to the whole team, the whole process for us was extremely streamlined and smooth. Couldn't expect a better service!" - Anna Taylor-Moore (November 2020)

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      Oozing with industry knowledge
      "As a first time buyer, it seemed like such an overwhelming process, but with their support, I wish I started years ago. Sharon, Lara and Claire have been just fantastic with sales progression as well as hand-holding me through any processes or random queries or concerns I had about the purchase. They reply really quickly and are readily available on the phone. I never got the feeling of 'I wish I could just talk to the vendor myself'. Honestly they are speedy. Oozing with industry knowledge, I can't recommend Arden enough. (Thanks for being so patient and caring with me!) I am so grateful for all your support, truly." - Kseniya Samsonik (November 2020)
