On a personal note….
On Monday 25th October 1999, a life long ambition came true for me, as Oliver Minton Estate Agents opened for business in Stanstead Abbotts. I started my career in estate agency 14 years ago and stood down as Branch Manager of the Ware branch of Halifax Property Services in August 1999, in order to devote my time to the setting up of the new business.
After 4 highly successful years in Stanstead Abbotts as the first specialist village-based local estate agency, we are now repeating this success in Puckeridge. In Stanstead Abbotts, Roydon, Puckeridge & Standon,
by acting as a tourist information-style agency for these villages, we have promoted them to a much wider audience then ever before. We target buyers from outside the normal Hertfordshire Mercury catchment area and attract people to explore our villages. See ‘Roydon’ page at www.oliverminton.com . We currently have over 1000 applicants on our database and these are all people specifically wanting VILLAGE LIFE – not town-orientated applicants who regard the villages as a second-best option.
In both branches, I have invested in the latest information technology in order to provide customers with the highest quality estate agency products: Full colour laser printed details, 360 degrees moving image ‘virtual tours’, sophisticated Internet sites, floor plan capability, aerial photographs, computerized mailing systems and special sales progression features enabling us to efficiently manage the sale of your property. Both office databases are synchronized, enabling us to offer all our properties automatically from Puckeridge and Stanstead Abbotts.
Equally important to me as leading the competition in estate agency technology, is providing the highest possible levels of service to our sellers and buyers. We look forward to being able to help with your next property sale or purchase.
Our Stanstead Abbotts branch opened in 1999, making us the longest serving Stanstead Abbotts estate agency. That experience gives us great local knowledge of the village and surrounding areas and complemented by our other more rural branches, we cover a wide area north of the M25 including Cheshunt & Broxbourne, across to Harlow and the M11 corridor, and west to the A1 corridor beyond Hertford and Watton-at-Stone. At any one time, it gives us a wonderful cross section of town and village based properties For Sale and To Rent.
Our staff take great pride in really helping to nurse our sales through to exchange and completion - a crucial part of the sales transaction and probably the most stressful part of the moving process. We also sell LAND and NEW HOMES successfully, as described by a recent happy client:
Good morning Oliver. Happy New Year to you. Having the break over Christmas has given me the time to reflect on the year past, as well as what I want to achieve in the year ahead. Having had the time to reflect, I thought I would just drop you a line to say thank you for your help last year. Selling a partly finished building plot, is probably as big a challenge in estate agent terms as it gets, but I have to say what a great job you and your company did. Your persistence in bearing with me at the various stages of the planning and build process to give advice and valuations was instrumental in our success. Your local expertise and contacts obviously sets you apart from the other agents who were also interested in marketing the property. To have relevant buyers lined up for viewings within three days of the listing and to have agreed a sale within 5 days at the full asking price was beyond any realistic expectation we had. Additionally, you getting on the case when needing to when the sale took a little longer the expected, and being calm and sensible when buyers and sellers are at their most volatile was invaluable. Yours sincerely, Kurt C Obeney.
