    SELLING WITH RANDALLS RESIDENTIAL
    image cannot be displayed

    As independent estate agents Randalls Residential can offer an entirely bespoke service to our clients. This starts with a detailed understanding of what is required, particularly in terms of price expectations and timescale requirements, from which we can prepare a bespoke marketing plan.

    At the initial meeting we will advise on market conditions, appropriate timescale and make recommendations on presentation and any potential legal issues. We will consider how best to sell, whether through auction, informal tender or by private treaty, and whether an open marketing campaign is appropriate or a more discreet 'off market' approach is called for. We will discuss broad pricing expectations and finalise our recommendations on appropriate marketing price just before marketing launch.

    Our commission is always discussed and agreed and confirmed in writing, and we usually agree on a no sale, no commission structure, with our commission being settled by your solicitor from the sale proceeds following legal completion.

    Where appropriate we can arrange the preparation of Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs), and if coming to the open market can arrange for detailed floorplans to be prepared, professional photography to be taken and quality brochures to be prepared, the costs of which we will discuss and agree in advance.

    Open marketing campaigns will revolve around digital marketing, particularly the use of rightmove and other internet portals, editorial and traditional advertising where appropriate, communication with agents who act exclusively for buyers, and our mailing list of applicants already registered.

    Viewings will invariably be accompanied by a representative from Randalls Residential and made at a mutually convenient time, with prompt and pertinent feedback given. All offers will be reported with detailed information on the background of offerors including our recommendations on timescale.

    Once a sale has been agreed we will liaise with all parties, solicitors, lenders and other agents in the chain, to ensure a smooth transition to exchange of contracts and ultimately legal completion.

Auctions

    Selling at auction

    At Randalls Residential, we have teamed up with whoobid to provide a slick, easy and transparent way of selling property. If you need to guarantee a sale by a specific time and/or have a property which you feel may be specifically suited to a sale by auction, we would be pleased to advise and discuss the process in more detail.

    Selling at auction is often a daunting thought, but with Randalls Residential we are streamlining the process for you. Selling can indeed be quick and easy, you can watch the auction live from the comfort of your home and you can set a reserve so you do not have any surprises. Also, you will pay 0% Commission to sell your property this way!

    We offer two different types of online property auction, traditional and modern method. Outlined below are the two types and how they differ.

    Traditional Auctions

    Our traditional auctions enable a property to be sold through our online platform in a way that is consistent with auctions you may have come across before: namely that exchange of contracts happens on the fall of the hammer to the winning bid over the reserve price, with completion taking place 28 days later. We have now given this a modern twist by putting the whole process online.

    Modern Method Auctions

    This concept is a little different. The process works in exactly the same way as the traditional auction, however at the end o the auction, the winning bidder (over the reserve price) enters into an exclusivity agreement wherein they have 28 days to exchange contracts, otherwise they lose their deposit.  This approach allows more time for buyers to arrange such things as finance that are often tricky with traditional auctions.

    BEN RANDALL
    With a father in agency, it was inevitable that Ben too would find his way into the industry, but he fell to the lure of the big lights and started his career in Pimlico. Gradually he orientated westwards, initially to Twickenham, St Margaret's and Teddington, including an interesting time specialising in the sale of exclusive homes on the river Thames and specialised houseboats, before joining Randalls Residential in Basingstoke. 

    Ben enjoys football, both playing and watching, skiing and he loves to run. He too is a great traveller.

    left me in total confidence
    Simon and his team left me in total confidence whilst he sold my home during a difficult economic market and at every stage I knew he was working hard to reach a completion for me. Thank you. Christopher
  • Seller Testimonial

    professional service throughout highly recommended
    Simon and his team were a pleasure to deal with. A swift sale and proactive professional service throughout, highly recommended. Paul Cook
  • Seller Testimonial

    personable approach..kept everyone informed 
    From the first moment we met Simon he understood our needs and managed to fit these. On selling our house he matched our buyer to the property without her having seen the details. His understanding of properties matched with his personable approach ensured everyone achieved what they wanted. Not only this but he kept everyone informed throughout the process all the way to completion. Thank you Simon! Joe and Emma
  • Seller Testimonial

    many thanks
    Phew! Many thanks for nursing this through. ....Jackie
  • Seller Testimonial

    professional..approachable...friendly
    I have known Simon for many years so when it came to selling my property in Hampshire he was the natural choice. Simon has that unique quality of being both very professional with many years of experience and also very approachable and friendly. During the process of selling my home he was always readily available to discuss my concerns and during the contract process kept me very well informed/updated. I would strongly recommend him to anyone who is both selling a home or wants advice on purchasing a property.

    Philip
  • Seller Testimonial

    personal attention and efforts..
    Now that the dust has settled, we should just like to thank you for the work you put in to achieve a sale of Old Rectory Farm. As you are well aware we had an earlier 'false start' and had not been happy with the level of commitment shown by the agents we had used previously. 

    We much appreciated your personal attention and efforts ensuing that a sale was successfully achieved. We were also grateful for the suggestion of a surveyor provided by your son. He has done an excellent job. At present we are in temporary (and very grand accommodation) while we are, we hope, progressing towards the purchase of our new home. 

     We should both like to wish you well in your venture as an independent. We have been pleased to note that there seem to be a fair number of your boards around locally.

    David
  • Seller Testimonial

    many thanks..
    Many thanks for all your efforts with the sale and I trust that Randalls Residential will be a success for you and your son. Helen
  • Seller Testimonial

    would thoroughly recommend
    Simon and Ben bring to the housing market something you can't underestimate - knowledge and experience. We bought and sold through Randalls and throughout they were excellent, going the extra mile time and time again and would thoroughly recommend. Chris
  • Seller Testimonial

    ....made a stressful upheaval go without a hitch
    Simon and his team made our house sale go extremely smoothly. They were respectful with entering our home for viewings, kept us informed along the way and, with expert knowledge of the local area, we had some valuable advice. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again and would definitely recommend them to anyone thinking about selling their property. Thanks Simon, you made a stressful upheaval go without a hitch.

    Helen
  • Seller Testimonial

    ,,,,I can't recommend him enough.
    Simon has been extremely helpful and patient in selling our property. Nothing was too much trouble, he constantly kept in touch with the progress of our sale and I can't recommend him enough. For a good, reliable, friendly, knowledgeable estate agent use Randall's Residentials.

    Sarah
  • Seller Testimonial

    we highly recommend Randalls Residential...
    We highly recommend Randall's Residential in Basingstoke. Simon has many years of local experience and was able to guide us through our sale with genuine care and knowledge. The sale was not straightforward and we truly believe if we had chosen another estate agent, our sale would have collapsed. When things looked like they were going 'pear-shaped', Simon stepped in and offered a solution that satisfied all parties. On the final days, before completion, Ben liaised with all parties involved and kept us up-to-date. We would also add, that while trying to make a purchase via another well-known estate agent who, due to their silly games, lost their buyer a sale (the property is still for sale at a much lower price than we offered). In conclusion, we would not hesitate to use Randall's as our estate agent in the future. Thank you so much Simon and Ben.

    David and Debbie
  • Seller Testimonial

    ..would definitely use them in the future...
    Absolutely fantastic service, highly recommend Randall's and would definitely use them in the future. They were also invaluable in helping us negotiate on our new home and helping us manage the whole moving process from beginning to end.

    Natasha
  • Seller Testimonial

    .....would have no hesitation in recommending them
    Simon and Ben are clearly very experienced and extremely professional. Despite the "Brexit" issues they found a buyer for our house very quickly and the whole transaction was well managed throughout. We were extremely pleased with the service they provided and would have no hesitation in recommending them.

    Heather
  • Seller Testimonial

    .extremely knowledgeable..very proactive..
    Randalls Residential are by far the best estate agents we have used! We first met Ben when he showed us around the house we have now bought; he was extremely knowledgeable about the house and the area, and was more than happy to spend time answering all of our questions. After the viewing we decided to sell our home with Randalls who were able to start marketing the property within a week, it then sold a few days later. Ben was very proactive and stayed involved throughout the entire process, regularly chasing all of the solicitors in the chain and updating us. This made a huge difference to our experience and stopped a lot of the stress normally involved with buying and selling.

    Lucy
  • Seller Testimonial

    ..far more than excellent...
    Absolutely amazing service provided by Ben, he managed every tiny detail and could not have been any more helpful. Truly went above and beyond and was at the end of the phone for the slightest query. Far more than excellent, thank you so much Ben

    Carol
  • Seller Testimonial

    ...the gold standard for estate agency...
    Quite simply, the gold standard for estate agency. Always honest, always available and really great guys to deal with. Having used a number of local agents over the years all I can say is that, if Randalls covers your area, just use them!

    Paul
  • Seller Testimonial

    ...extremely efficient, speedy and professional...
    Thank you very much for acting as agents for my brother and I. Once you began proceedings there was much more interest and offers in the first month than in the whole of the nine months it was on sale with the previous agent.
    You conducted the sale in an extremely efficient, speedy and professional manner and took the worry and pressure off us both. Thank you.

    Patricia

    Heather
  • Seller Testimonial

    ..no hesitation in recommending them..
    Simon and Ben sold our property for us on the first day of viewings! Their advice about listing price, photos and viewings was completely invaluable and they helped the sale go through smoothly without a hitch. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to friends or family.

  • Seller Testimonial

    ...been there every step of the way..
    Simon Randall has proven to be a great agent. He's nursed our sale through various hiccups and whilst it has taken almost 5 months in total to get to exchange, he has been there every step of the way with us. He's also helped our buyer enormously too, which I know has assisted us with the sale. Well done Simon and many thanks for getting us "over the line" eventually.

    Jo
  • Seller Testimonial

    ...never lost faith in their ability..

Testimonials from Buyers

  • Buyer Testimonial

    Simon listened to my requirements
    Simon listened to my requirements and did not waste time showing me houses that were not a fit. Second house he showed me was the one. Claire Andrews
  • Buyer Testimonial

    ...went above and beyond.
      We recently purchased a property through Randalls Residential and I have to say they were brilliant. In particular Simon who for us went above and beyond. As we were using a well known online estate agent for our sale, who certainly didn't live up to the TV ad hype with their post sales team. In fact we're borderline useless and we wouldn't recommend them to anyone. Randalls Residential though stepped up and helped us with both the sale of our house and purchase of our new home. As we had a deadline to meet for completion, Randalls helped guide us through the process and helped ensure we were on track on both side.

    In my lifetime I've moved homes quite a lot and had many different experiences with a variety of different estate agents. Some good, some horrendous but Randalls Residential for us were exceptional. And I don't use that word lightly. Takes a lot for me to admit that as I know I have high expectations. Online estate agents may be a cheaper option but there is a clear reason why. Never underestimate the importance of what happens after you've found a buyer. That part is the easy part. It's the after sales experience which can be the difference between a stress free sale and sleepless nights. Randalls Residential stepped up on every level and delivered in spades.

    Tom
  • Buyer Testimonial

    would thoroughly recommend.....
    Simon and Ben were extremely helpful and polite. Would thoroughly recommend Randalls Residential to anyone considering moving home.

    Lesley
  • Buyer Testimonial

    ..Simon...was the conductor of the orchestra...
    I was particularly assisted in my purchase of my new home by Simon Randall who was hugely helpful and supportive throughout the whole purchase. I could almost say that he was the conductor of the orchestra, the orchestra being the other estate agents in the chain and the solicitors involved. I'm not sure my purchase would ever have come to fruition without Simon's involvement.

    Gillian
  • Buyer Testimonial

    an exceptional service
    Both Simon and Ben provided an exceptional service. All our queries, however small, were dealt with quickly and efficiently. By far the best estate agents that I have used. Thoroughly recommended. Thank you

    Liz
  • Buyer Testimonial

    ...I can't recommend them highly enough...
    Simon and Ben were fantastic in managing our purchase. They have changed my opinion about estate agents! Really pleased and I can't recommend them highly enough.

    Steve

  • Buyer Testimonial

    ...cannot recommend highly enough...
    First-rate service... We cannot recommend Randalls Residential highly enough. We first met Ben in June 2018 when he showed us the property we have just exchanged on, from that first meeting we had complete confidence in Ben, he was friendly and professional, and as time went on proved over and over that nothing was too much trouble. He listened and responded to all our questions with great patience, even my wife asking him how tall he was as she was trying to work out ceiling heights! We sold through another agent as we have relocated from Bristol but throughout Ben kept in touch to find out how our sale was progressing, and when we were finally in a position to make an offer he liaised with all parties and kept us fully updated. There were a few delays with our exchange date but Ben took control and ensured that everything went through for us to complete on time. We cannot thank him enough. 

    Ken and Amanda 
  • Buyer Testimonial

    ...I would thoroughly recommend Randalls..
    What a great surprise, just bought a house through Randalls residential - definitely not the usual " agent" experience. Ben was always at the end of the phone to assist/reassure and advise, even during the hairy moments, which made the whole journey a thoroughly pleasant experience - I would thoroughly recommend Randalls to anyone thinking about selling or purchasing a house - super job and thanks!

    Tony
  • Buyer Testimonial

    ...couldn't have been better...
    As first time buyers, our first experience of the property market couldn't have been better. The purchase was swift and painless; Ben was proactive throughout, always kept us in the loop and nothing was ever too much trouble. Thank you, Randalls!

  • Buyer Testimonial

    ...all-round professional and friendly..
    An all-round professional and friendly approach to Estate Agency. A refreshingly efficient service, which provided us with a feeling of confidence around the purchase process we are engaged in. Overall, a worthy five stars from us. Thank you to Simon and his Team!

  • Buyer Testimonial

    ..no nonsense, no flannel.... got the job done...
    My experience of Randalls was as a buyer. I had face to face dealings with both Simon & Ben and they were fantastic. I could always get hold of someone when needed and they were no nonsense, no flannel, no blah, down-to-earth, real and normal decent people who got to the job done. Thanks to them the process was as painless as house buying can be. I would most definitely ask them to sell my property if the situation did arise in future.
