paragraphWelcome... Michael Comyn and Simon James welcome you to our iindependent estate agency selling all types of residential and country house properties in West Sussex. We are wholly dedicated to providing a comprehensive, up to date service where the client 's interests always come first.
Why should I use Comyn & James to market my property?
For most of us the selling of our own property is a significant responsibility and one of the largest financial transactions we will ever undertake. It therefore makes sense to use a professional service to handle the marketing of the property from start to finish. The aim is to obtain the best possible price with the minimum of stress.
But how does one choose the right estate agent? At Comyn and James our considerable experience and understanding of the pressures involved in selling a property are the bedrock of our business. We are wholly dedicated to providing a comprehensive and personal service where the client's interests always come first. It is all about...
No matter how good an estate agency declares itself to be - it is the quality of its staff that makes the difference. They are usually the first and last point of contact in selling property and the seller's personal representative. At Comyn and James the marketing and sales is handled by the Directors themselves thereby assuring you of a professional and fully committed approach. Careful handling and considered advice requires...
With over 50 years combined experience we have the vital in-depth knowledge - not just of the local property market and surrounding regions but in London and beyond. We have worked through many recessions and periods of expansion and both live locally - we understand what it takes to succeed. But what about...
The Directors have hard earned reputations built over many years - founded on trust and integrity.
Respect for the client's requirements is paramount. Michael Comyn has worked in estate agency in West Sussex since 2002. Prior to this he was a Director of John D Wood & Co (residential sales) in London for many years (earning a nomination by a national broadsheet newspaper paper as "the best, most professional estate agent in Wandsworth"). He is a Fellow of the National Association of Estate Agents and holds the appropriate qualifications. Simon James is a well known local figure having lived in the area since 1965. His considerable experience in the industry more recently includes 10 years of very successful management of a branch of a well respected local independent Estate Agents. Local knowledge leads to...
Accurate market appraisals
When it comes to advising on a suitable Guide Price for a property our detailed knowledge of local and national market conditions combined with professionally supplied market data provides essential and relevant information. We review all factors including local demand, recent prices achieved, social influences, the location and character of a property, market trends and the client's requirements. Then what is needed is...
Good property presentation and effective marketing
We produce compelling and professionally presented sale particulars with colour floor plans in satin or gloss finish - essential in attracting potential buyers. Our printed brochures are carefully composed to highlight the main 'selling features' of each property normally with large format photographs - after all, we live in a visual age. These pictures include properly lit interiors, impressive elevated overviews using a 25ft camera mast for unique angles and wide panoramic shots to promote views. Instead of a 'one size fits all' approach we treat each property as individual aiming to expose it to its natural market. Our highly visible local office 'shop window' is in a prominent 'high street' position attracting a very high level of footfall with large format window displays including A2. It is our belief that the image of the property should take priority over the advertising of our name. We also inform potential buyers by...
We advertise in the West Sussex County Times, the West Sussex Gazette, Etc Magazine and Sussex Life magazine. We produce our own regional Property Magazine and lifestyle magazine in conjunction with our associated London Office in Pall Mall and can discuss further national advertising in publications such as Country and Town House magazine. We send editorial pieces to both local and national press with photographs to the various property correspondents as well as submitting articles to the media department at the Guild of Professional Estate Agents - very useful for obtaining extra publicity particularly for unusual properties. Buyers today focus on...
With over 80% of enquiries generated 'on line' it is essential to be well presented on the right property websites. At Comyn and James we feature all our properties clearly, with full brochures, impressive photographs and floor plans on our own dedicated website www.comyandjames.co.uk. We also use Primelocation, Rightmove, Zoopla, Guildproperty (website of The Guild of Professional Estate Agents), Homes24 (Sussex Life Magazine web site) and portals such as The Times and Telegraph, Facebook Marketplace, Johnston Press and MSN... Vital to this is....

Our' London Office

Keeping you informed
Successful marketing and sales rely on accurate information and regular communication between the agent, the seller, the buyer, solicitors, surveyors and financial advisors. We aim to give our clients prompt feedback after viewings and to ensure they are kept up to date on a regular basis with progress in respect of marketing and/or the sale transaction. Knowing people is the key..
