    UPDATE FROM ELR BANNER CROSS - DECEMBER 2017
    image cannot be displayed

    What a finish we had to November, unprecedented levels of sales saw the team have a very lively month indeed, with 5 new instructions already lined up for December there is also no sign of the market stalling before the festive break in our core sales areas of S7, S10, S11 and S17. Normally at this time of year the market does slow down with peoples minds turning to Christmas however it seems that there are still plenty of people looking to buy property (who wouldn't want a house as a Christmas present after all?) and enquiries via email, phone and particularly via our very popular social media platforms are coming in at all times of the day. If you are one interested in selling you may like to know that there is a huge spike in traffic on Rightmove between Boxing Day and the middle of January so having your property on the market during this time can very often result in excellent levels of viewings and sales being agreed in double quick time. The 1st step to selling is getting your house valued so why don't you give the team a call on 0114 2683388 or even phone the valuer direct? James can be contacted on his mobile at any time and would be happy to come and give you some advice - 07773821068. Have a smashing December, all at Banner Cross.

    SELLING PROPERTY WITH ELR
    image cannot be displayed

    When an estate agents has been operating since 1840 like ELR you can rest assured that you are in safe hands. We have seen more rises and falls in the market than any other operating agent in Sheffield and our team provide the very best advice when looking to place your property on the market and this leads to our clients getting the very best price available.

    Every home is different and therefore not all our marketing material is the same, for example a house with a stunning view will surely need an elevated photo to capture that view in the best possible way. We use state of the art drone cameras for this purpose, capturing not only the shot of the house but also the stunning backdrop to truly reflect what your house is all about.

    ELR have always looked to explore innovative marketing ideas, we were after all the 1st agents in Sheffield to use colour photography in the local paper, on our brochures and also offered floorplans for every property, all of which are now common practice and copied by our competitors  With this in mind we are always looking to embrace different ways to showcase our properties for example we now offer professionally taken photos for every property we place on the market and the option of a 3 dimensional plan if our client prefers. With more people using their phones to search for property than ever before our impressive website has been recently redesigned to be viewed on any form of media device, resizing to fit even the mobile phone giving the user the best possible viewing platform in any format they choose to access our information resulting in more potential purchasers for our clients.  When you combine this with innovative marketing techniques such as open houses, virtual tours, 'premium listings' and 'featured properties' on the nations favourite website, Rightmove and our brand new 'ebrochures' packed with interesting info on the surrounding area its easy to see why ELR are still selling houses for the proud people of Sheffield. 

    If you have any questions as to how we can offer you a personalised service why don't you call James Ross on 07773821068 to discuss how ELR can be of service to you and give you a competitive edge when selling?

Forward thinking and full of energy, James knows how to attract the most number of potential buyers to your property and in turn to get you the best price. James has built up a great list of applicants and understands exactly what they are looking for, so much so that he can often find a buyer for a property before it even hits the open market!

    Out of work - As a father of four, James is kept pretty busy out of work, but he does try to find time for his other passions - cooking, Sheffield United and cricket! His perfect Sunday would be a walk around Blacka Moor, stopping off for a quick pint in his local, before heading home to watch the footie and cook for family and friends.

    Nick Riddle - Director and Surveyor

    Nick started at ELR in the mid 1990's following his Father and Great Uncle and becoming the third generation of Chartered Surveyor to become a shareholder in the Firm. There is nothing Nick doesn't know about residential property and he has acted in many expert witness cases, never losing one. He mainly deals with surveys and the professional side of the business but still keeps his hand in with Estate Agency and also runs any Auctions. He was the first in the region to sell a £1,000,000 home at auction and remains the only one to have sold one in excess of £2,000,000!! Nick also helps others when a tricky situation occurs with a sale being handled by another within the firm, often keeping a sale intact after a poor survey etc or an awkward lease problem arises. Away from the office he is kept busy running his children (just the two, Sophie and George) to netball, tennis, football, cricket and golf! Nick is passionate about cooking. He loves rugby, tennis and cricket although he only plays tennis nowadays!
