    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.

Genuine commitment from a 'proactive' Estate Agent
  • paragraph

    Attention to detail that makes a big difference...

    Unlike many estate agents or online companies who charge up front and then hit the market and hope, we are not scared to admit our aim is to offer your property the very maximum exposure realistically possible. We want to ensure we have done everything realistically possible to sell your home. Therefore, unlike many others we dedicate huge resources to marketing and advertising our clients homes. All this is with a genuine commitment to NO SALE, NO FEE. Ultimately, sometimes bigger is better. If you or your chosen agent fails to expose your property to the market properly you will not get the interest you need. Without interest from buyers you will not get viewings and without viewings you will not get offers. We are a firm with a proactive attitude to estate agency and have lots of experience in both boom and bust periods. We apply a hard work ethos throughout the company, think logically about the task in hand and offer genuine commitment to our clients and their needs.
  • paragraph

    Presented to ensure it is seen and appreciated..
    The sale particulars for your property will be individually designed to make sure your home is presented attractively and professionally. This will be to ensure your home is seen in its best light and to create the maximum exposure possible. In presenting a property we think outside the traditional box to attract the attention you need and your property deserves. This also comes from our financial commitment to offering featured property listing on Rightmove as well as a guarantee of a premium listing for every property we sell. All photographs are of a professional standard as are the floor plans produced. Aerial photographs are used when necessary to offer another 'angle' to the extensive range of services we offer.
  • paragraph

    Service that brings about results..
    No matter how well we expose your property a good estate agent still needs to offer genuine good customer service to make sure buyers trust the estate agent they are dealing with. The relationship we create is one which brings about results for our vendors. Constant contact with buyers discussing their requirements and making sure they are properly considering every option is where we manage to arrange viewings for properties others would not dream of. As wonderful as the internet is for offering buyers information there is nothing to substitute customer service and building up a relationship with buyers to properly understand their requirements. It does result in success. This success could be the sale of your home?
  • paragraph

    Understanding the market locally...
    If you instruct our Wedmore office you are instructing people not just a firm of estate agents. Our people have long term experience of the property market and an awful lot of experience in dealing with specialised homes in specialised areas. Understanding you, your home and the area is a must if we are to ensure the best possible result. We have an understanding which is vital when selling a home.
  • paragraph

    Its not just about finding a buyer..
    Strange as this may seem but we actually believe finding the buyer is only half of our job done. Protecting the interests of our clients and monitoring the progression of their sale is vital to ensure the sale does complete. We are not scared to chase the solicitors and other parties involved if it means we are bringing about an end result. If you instruct Charles Barnard Estate Agents you get the service you deserve from when you first instruct us right up until the minute keys are handed over to the buyer we find for you.
  • paragraph

    Flexibility with terms...
    Unlike many estate agents we are willing to be flexible where necessary. We  would not want to lose out on an opportunity to sell your home just because someone has offered you a higher valuation or a cheaper fee. Before decisions like this are made please call us to discuss any difference of opinion you may have been offered.  We will look to find a way to make sure we remain your agent of choice. Do not waste time marketing a property for a cheaper fee if it means it will not sell. We only charge a fee for a successful sale. Therefore, until that point you have absolutely nothing to lose.

    Call now to discuss our terms on 01934 710 510. You may be pleasantly surprised with what you hear and just how proactive we are and how we are managing to sell property in what remains a difficult and uncertain market.

      Service throughout and not just finding a buyer
      "The dust has now settled following our move and we are enjoying life in our new home. I rarely write notes praising good performance, except in exceptional circumstances. But I felt compelled to do so now because I was so very impressed with the service you have given us. It's not been an easy ride, but the drive and determination you have shown, and your tenacity and commitment to customer service have all been exemplary, especially in keeping us informed every step of the way, and at any time of the day or night! We couldn't have asked for a more professional high quality service. And most importantly you delivered where the others we had tried failed. Thank you so much for all your hard work. I wish you all the best for the future and have no doubt that your business will continue to go from strength to strength." Mr and Mrs D (previously of Wookey, Near Wells)
