    Linda Close, Lettings Negotiator
    Favourite part of your job? I love helping people find their dream home and ensuring the process is enjoyable and stress free.

    Top tip for landlord or tenant? My top tip for a landlord would be to always have an inventory report done on your property prior to tenants moving in, even if the property is unfurnished! It's a great document to have. My top tip for a tenant would be to always make amendments to your inventory report and return it in the recommended time frame.

    What would be your dream home? My dream would be to buy a beautiful chateau in the north of France. Renovate it, in keeping with the original décor but adding a modern twist. I would then open it up as a bed and breakfast and wedding venue!

      Finding you the right buyer and the best price for your home

      At John German Estate Agents, we spend a lot of time 'qualifying' buyers to make sure they are motivated and enthusiastic about moving. Therefore you can be confident the person viewing your house is clearly identified and serious about buying. Most importantly, if an offer has been made, we check the purchaser is financially in a position to buy before taking the property off the market, to help reduce the chances of your sale falling through. Our experienced negotiators are on hand to discuss each offer with you and make sure you get the best possible price for your property.

      Accompanied viewings

      We arrange viewings at no extra cost, unlike many other estate agents, especially online agents. We also follow up viewings within 24 hours.

      Sales progression


      We remain in contact with you throughout and liaise with solicitors/agents within the chain to ensure there is a greater chance of the sale successfully completing and the property being sold.

      IT ALL STARTS WITH YOUR FREE VALUATION

      Simply complete our Valuation Request form, providing a few details about your property. We'll be in touch shortly to arrange a suitable date and time to visit.

      • Buyer Testimonial

        they would always promptly call back
        The staff were always friendly and polite. If it was not possible to immediately answer a query they would always promptly call back. Despite being the property buyer (and so not directly employing John German) they were far more efficient and urgent in seeing to completing the purchase than my own mortgage advisor or conveyancer. I would highly recommend John German Ashby.
      • Buyer Testimonial

        they have been wonderful.
        I have just exchanged contracts and I'm so pleased that the people I'm buying from used John German, they have been wonderful. I don't think we would have got to this point without them. Estate Agents do so much more than just advertise your property, there is a long way to go from someone saying they want to buy your property to actually making it happen. I would definitely recommend John German, thank you so much.
