    Why use us?
    • paragraph

      image cannot be displayed
      In the absence of a consumer guide on how to choose the most suitable agent to sell your property, we contend that contacting a few suitable agents posing as a buyer is an effective way of finding out why some agents continue to prosper regardless of market conditions (challenging or otherwise) whilst others flounder.

      Evaluate how efficiently and effectively the agent dealt with your enquiry.  Did they find out about the what, the where, the why, the when and the how?

      Did you feel comfortable with the way they dealt with your enquiry?  Did they take an active interest in assisting you in buying a property?  Did they follow up your enquiry?

      Remember that the manner in which your enquiry was handled will reflect the way in which they will sell your property.  

      Selling your home is a serious undertaking so you need to be sure that the agent understands and respects the responsibility and faith that you are placing in them. 

      Agents that are best at helping buyers buy will inevitably be the best at helping a seller sell.

      Alternatively here's a quick 1, 2 and 3 to start you thinking!

      1.  Is the agent successfully selliing properties like yours in your area and price range?  If so they will almost certainly have a bigger database of suitable buyers ready, willing and able to buy a home like yours.

      2.  Did they conduct through research in advance of making recommendations on marketing and selling price?

      3.  Did they advise you on a bespoke 'tailor made' marketing strategy to designed to sell your home based around your individual needs as opposed to a one dimensional 'one size fits all' approach?

    Helping buyers buy
    • paragraph

      image cannot be displayed
      At Exquisite Home we never forget that our selling client is our number one priority but we also fully recognise our legal; and moral obligation to treat all buyers fairly and with respect.

      In fact, it is by assisting and guiding buyers so well that we give the best possible service to our selling clients and if you check our reviews you will soon note that we have almost as many five start reviews from buyers as we have from sellers; even in scenarios when the buyer hasn't actually made a purchase through our agency.

      Here's a few pointers for what you have every right to expect when you work with an agent to buy your next home.

      1.  They must have a thorough understanding of your individual requirements - not just the obvious what, where and how much much but also the when and the why.  The more we are able to understand your personal requirements, the greater the chance we can find you the right home, one that hopefully even exceeds your expectations.

      2.  They must have a thorough understanding of the property they are trying to sell you.  Not just the basics but also matters such as whether the timescales will work for you, the finance and the overall suitability.  

      3.  They must be committed to helping you every single step of the way in ensuring that the transaction proceeds swiftly and smoothly including after the price is agreed.  Keeping you informed at all stages and responding quickly and meaningfully if and when the need arises is vital in terms of minimising aggravation and stress.

        How to spot fake reviews!
        image cannot be displayed

        Look for overuse of "I" and "me" and a lot of verbs.According to research from Cornell University, online reviews that frequently use "I" and "me" are more likely to be fake than those that don't - possibly because when people are lying they try to make themselves sound credible by using personal pronouns. Additionally, "deceivers use more verbs and truth-tellers use more nouns," the research found.

        Beware of scene-setting. The Cornell study also found that setting the scene could be a warning sign. 

        Watch out for generic names and/or photo-less profiles. One of the big ways that fake online reviews get generated is from "a faceless offshore company pushing bulk reviews on a site under different accounts," says Jean Paldan, founder of UK-based marketing firm Rare Form New Media. To spot those, "look for names like John or Jane Smith, or obviously fake names or just numbers and letters. 

        Examine the timing of reviews. "See if there is a spike in the total number of reviews during a very short time frame. This can indicate a targeted campaign to add new artificial reviews," says Derek Hales, the editor-in-chief of home products review site ModernCastle. 

        Look for phrase repetition. "Look through several reviews and see if any words or phrases are repeated in different reviews. Reviews that use the same phrase(s) may have been instructed to do so by the party faking the reviews, says Hales.

        Check the spelling and grammar, says Michael Lai, a founder of review site SiteJabber. Many fake reviews are outsourced to content farms, he says, which may mean they "are either written in poor English or not in a way a real consumer would express their opinion."

        Dig deeper into the reviewer profile. Another common type of fake review is from a "professional reviewer" - someone who was given the product for free and given extra money, to give a five star review, Paldan says. These are "harder to spot" but you often can if you put in some legwork, she says: "Click on the reviewer profile, and look at all of their reviews. If they have a big trend of giving all five star reviews without any negativity ... odds are that they were bought and paid for." Another hint: If they've done a lot of five-star reviews for products owned by the same company.

        Look at the middle-of-the-road reviews. "It's often helpful to sort reviews that fall in the middle of the pack (e.g 3/5 stars). These reviews are often the most honest and insightful about both the positive and negative aspects of the venue and can be used to cross-reference other reviews to look for trends in both positive and negative feedback," says Marc Nashaat, an SEO and digital PR consultant.

        When in doubt, reach out. "Reach out directly to the reviewer with questions about their review. Most fake reviewers will not respond, but real reviewers often look forward to opportunities to be more helpful," says Lai.

      • Seller Testimonial

        motivated to provide an excellent level of service
        From the first contact we had with Exquisite home to view the property we have now moved into and throughout the whole difficult process of selling and buying a new home Luan and her colleagues have been extremely helpful, professional, pleasant, efficient and above all totally motivated to provide an excellent level of service. As a novice to this whole house buying business it was reassuring and comforting to know someone was looking out for both the seller and buyer and I couldn't recommend them more highly. An extremely well deserved 5 stars.
      • Seller Testimonial

        superb support, client care and expertise
        It is a pleasure for me to write this review the team at Exquisite Home. We have recently completed a very successful sale on our first property with the expert guidance from Luan. It was very easy for us to choose Exquisite Home to act as our agent. Our story begins when we first met Luan as she was doing a viewing for another property that we had been interested in. We were both very taken with her sunny personality and complete professionalism. Having mentioned to Luan that we were going to be selling our house Luan very kindly arranged for her colleague Michael to come and value our house with a view to putting it on the market. Michael arrived promptly and immediately put our minds at ease, due to his conscientious approach and years of experience in the very specialist field of high end estate agency. Then Covid happened which put our plans on hold, but as soon as we were able to move forward everything happened so smoothly and in such an efficient way. We were kept updated very regularly with polite, friendly emails. Where we asked for guidance Luan's advice was well founded, knowledgeable and easy to understand. The brochure that was made showed off the best features of our property with professional high end images which showcased our home in the best possible way. The text description was well written and we were involved through the entire process where our thoughts and wishes were listened to and worked into the details. Our whole sale process from the first viewing to completion was just 14 weeks, which we thought was so impressive given the restrictions of covid 19 and the challenges this has brought to 2020. We feel so very lucky to have found Luan and her team- Lisa and George, Michael and Alison have all been patient, helpful and very professional. With their help we comfortably broke the ceiling price for our type of property in our area. Their service and guidance has really impressed us, and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. We hope to use Exquisite Home in the future and have been delighted with every single aspect of their superb support, client care and expertise in estate agency.

      • Buyer Testimonial

        going way beyond what was required
        During what was a difficult purchase for many reasons, a global pandemic being one of them, the team at Exquisite Homes proved to be extremely professional. We were the buyers and at times it felt that they were more proactive than the estate agents working on our behalf going way beyond what was required of them.Thank you Exquisite Homes in being instrumental in bring not only the purchase but our sale together
      • Buyer Testimonial

        Definitely recommend this company
        My partner and I approached Exquisite homes to view a property, we were in two minds whether or not we should really look at it seriously, as it was quite grand and somewhat a scary venture for us!However, we met Gavin Human at the property and from out outset he was exceptionally professional and incredibly polite. The viewing was very detailed and Gavin knew just the right amount of involvement to have before leaving us to ourselves.All questions whether big or small were answered very quickly indeed and in great detail, given this was in the midst of a pandemic, it was a very relaxing experience.I cannot give enough credit to this company and our direct contact Gavin, the entire experience was fantastically professional, which was a far cry from the estate agent representing our home sale.We would definitely recommend this company to all and if we were to ever sell or buy a property in the future we will definitely be using Exquisite homes and preferably Gavin himself, the name of the business represents himself quite adequately "exquisite".

        Can't recommend Exquisite Home enough
        Fantastic Service and support from the beginning of our search. Alison was very helpful and went the extra mile to ensure seamless service.

      • Buyer Testimonial

        professional, helpful and super responsive
        I cannot recommend Alison at Exquisite Home enough! From the first point of contact and through the entire purchase process she was professional, helpful and super responsive. No question was too small and she accommodated all my requests and viewings. She is a really lovely lady with a wealth of knowledge of period properties and the local area - it was a fantastic service from beginning to end and I would not hesitate to use her if we ever decide to sell!
      • Buyer Testimonial

        the extra mile and kept me informed
        I cannot thank Luan at Exquisite Home enough. Even though she wasn't my agent, she still went the extra mile and kept me informed from start to finish. Friendly, professional, great communication, nothing too much trouble. 110% service and gets the job done! Thank you so much.
      • Buyer Testimonial

        personal approach that makes you feel comfortable
        Many estate agents have lost the personal approach that makes you feel comfortable selling a beloved home, but from the start of the process Gavin was determined to not only find a buyer but also the right type of buyer. He was always polite and professional, providing good feedback and very easy to deal with, I would highly recommend.
      • Buyer Testimonial

        nothing short of remarkable
        We recently, August/September 2020, whilst looking to relocate from Hertfordshire viewed a property in North Cambridgeshire with Exquisite Homes. Whilst we eventually bought through a different agent in another county our experience With Gavin Human of Exquisite Home was nothing short of remarkable.From the initial contact, the actual viewing and thereafter he was thoroughly professional, friendly and gave freely of his time and experience ( even though he made no sale ).His approach and manner was a breath of fresh air to the many other agents we were unfortunate enough to encounter throughout our search.In the event of needing an estate agent in the future I will have no hesitation in using Exquisite Homes in general and Gavin in particular.I cannot recommend him highly enough.
