Why instruct Hunter French to sell your home?
  • paragraph

    Professional Photography

    The photographs are more often than not the first point of contact your buyer will have with the property, therefore one of the most important factors when we market your home. For this reason we feel that including this service as part of our fee is a necessity.

    Market Coverage

    Along with our own website, we advertise on all the top property portals including Rightmove and OnTheMarket.com. Aside from internet advertising you will find us weekly in the Bath Chronicle and of course if you are to visit our offices we have window and wall displays off all the properties we market.

    Office Network

    Starting originally in Bath in 2005, Hunter French now have a coverage of four offices. The following locations in Corsham, Devizes and Frome were opened in 2007, 2012 and 2013 respectively.

    Registered Applicants

    We have a database of applicants registered with Hunter French and this data is connected between the four offices. Potential buyers can even register themselves on our website making it a great and easy way to build up a large amount of applicants who are all contacted when a property is placed onto the market that suits their requirements, either by email or telephone. 

    After Sales Service

    Once we have successfully found you a buyer for your property we continue to be actively involved with the progression of your sale. From contacting solicitors to answering simple questions your buyers may have about the house we are here to be a great middle-man and port of call for sellers, buyers and also solicitors, surveyors and mortgage companies.

    Accompanied Viewings and Constructive Feedback

    A member of the team will always accompany potential purchasers around your property on a viewing. This member of staff will be in-the-know of relevant information about the property. After the viewing we will contact you with initial comments and thoughts from the viewers then the following day, after they have had time to discuss we will contact them to gain further information on whether your property is the right home for them.

    Competitive Fees and No Lengthy Contracts

    Our fees are competitively priced for the market and we work on a no sale no fee basis, therefore we have a great incentive to sell your property. We also find that clients stay marketing with Hunter French because they are very happy with the service we provide; therefore we do not require any lengthy contracts of 12 or 16 weeks and just ask for two weeks notice if you wish to withdraw the property from the market with us.

    Local and Knowledgeable Staff

    Our team in the Bath office all live within close proximity yet all in different directions of the city, this means we benefit, between us, from lots of local knowledge from all around the area and many of the villages.

      Dear Hannah, Steve and Jamie,

      We enjoyed stress free and personal service.
      We couldn't be happier. The guys at the Bath branch provided us with a superb service. Nothing ever seemed too much trouble. Our house sold in 3 weeks and all went smoothly, the few queries we did have were dealt with swiftly and professionally and when a call back was promised it happened in a timely fashion. No chasing was needed at any time - this in itself is a rare commodity nowadays. There is a lot to be said for dealing with a local experienced independent estate agent; we enjoyed the stress-free, personal, professional and courteous service we received by the whole team. Once instructed, the guys all paid us a visit to get to know our home and ask the type of questions they get asked when showing potential buyers around. All in all a great experience we would thoroughly recommend to anyone else - well done Hunter French, a great result!
    • Seller Testimonial

      extremely good level headed advice... 
      Hunter French have a totally dedicated attitude to achieve the best results possible. Very pleasant to have had Jon as my agent. He was totally supportive at such a stressful time. Will definitely use Jon again. Would recommend him to all my family and friends. Hunter French were excellent from the moment they took charge of the sale of my property, they are kind, approachable and most importantly they are sympathetic and understanding of the client's needs and stresses. Clearly an experienced agent, acting in a professional manner at all times, good communication keeping things flowing. Jon is an exceptional house agent he really seems to care about his clients and has a very good knowledge of Colerne and surrounding area, we were most impressed.. From start to finish Hunter French managed the sale of my property with a great understanding of customer needs. They offered me extremely good level headed advice and with patience and humour when necessary! I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them and Jon is a real asset to Hunter French.

      they did not disappoint
      We chose Hunter French to sell our property based on feedback from friends and neighbours. They did not disappoint. From the outset, they were professional, personable and efficient. They also marketed and sold our house in well under two weeks, allowing us to proceed with buying our new home. A pleasure to deal with.

      Hunter French - they are nothing like the shiny suited wide-boys that give estate agents a bad name.

      Thanks again to the HF Team.

      Kind regards - Shane
    • Seller Testimonial

      I have always been impressed.... 
      I have valued the fact that when you have said you will telephone with feedback post viewings you have done so. The feedback has been honest, good or bad, hence I have not been misled. You have made constructive suggestions about how I can improve the property for sale. You have also understood and followed my brief on the security of the property. I have always been impressed with the way all Hunter French staff have conducted themselves.

      Finally I wish all at Hunter French a Happy Christmas and a successful New Year. 

      Regards Mr Allen
