    A modern estate agent with traditional values ....

    We are a proactive firm happily embracing modern technology. This includes professional standards in photography, floor plans and bespoke glossy brochures. All provided FREE of charge. At the same time we remain committed to high levels of customer service and the traditional values you will expect of a well-established firm of estate agents. We do not 'rely' on computers or technology and unlike many other estate agents we commit to keeping in regular contact with buyers. This ensures purchasers are introduced to every property which may suit their needs. Old fashioned matching people to property.

    One of the reasons we are successfully selling more properties than other agents is due to our larger than average marketing and advertising budget. This financial commitment ensures we offer each and every property the maximum exposure realistically possible. We do not offer regular space within our adverts just at the start; we actually continue this until a sale has been agreed. This is with no upfront costs or hidden charges. It truly is a no sale, no fee service.

    Our exposure includes at least TWO to THREE 'FULL' pages of advertising in the following publications:

    The Somerset Life, the Cheddar Valley Gazette, the Wells Journal, the Shepton Mallet Journal, the Central Somerset Gazette and a page every month in the Isle of Wedmore News. We also advertise in the Bristol Property Live and on occasions the Western Daily Press as well as ensuring our brand is seen in several smaller local booklets.

    Potential buyers and those with a general interest in the property market have seen for the past eight years we have successfully secured the first three pages of advertising in the local newspaper property supplement. In addition we place a very noticeable banner advert in the supplement. These prime positions are used to create excellent exposure for properties as well as helping to attract further buyers. We make no excuse for this as it helps to continue increasing our database of clients looking to buy.

    In addition we have a larger than average presence on the major online property portals. This includes prominent advertising with the market leader 'Rightmove' as well as 'Zoopla', 'Prime Location' and 'On the Market'. With all four we have options to offer our clients premium listings as well as the rare opportunity to have your property seen at the top of all local Rightmove listings as a 'featured' property.

    We recently started advertising our 'Signature Homes' brand monthly in the Country Life magazine itself. Our adverts include selected individual properties which will be seen within their monthly property collection. This special edition once a month helps us to attract further buyers to our database. When applicable we also advertise in the Horse and Hound magazine.

    Since 2013 we have been working with Millfield School, advertising in their 'Windmill' magazine which is distributed throughout the year. This has been very successful so far with our full page advert within the magazine distributed to over 13,500 current, prospective and ex-Millfield parents. We also work closely with all the local independent schools to ensure we are aware of their open days. Not only to be prepared for when new buyers are in the area but to see whether we are allowed to leave marketing material on the day for parents new to the area to browse through.

    We are an agent constantly thinking outside the box when looking at other options for advertising and we will continue to do so. As an independent family firm we are able when needed to adapt our marketing and advertising to suit a particular property, hopefully your property.

    We hope you can see we are committed to doing everything possible to ensure every property is seen by the right person at the right time. We know we invest far more than other local agents. This has contributed hugely with the successful sale of our client's homes. Selfishly, we continue with this exposure as it also protects the level of buyers we are dealing with on a day to day basis. The database of buyers we have to turn to is also unrivalled locally. When sellers come to us they immediately know we have a huge list of buyers to work with and one may be the perfect match for their property.

    All of this is offered on a NO SALE, NO FEE basis. If we are not successful in selling your home we will not get paid a penny for trying.
