Why choose Reality?
  • paragraph

    Choosing the right agent for you is imperative.

    And it is vital to understand that making a decision based on fee or valuation price could result in you not getting the right level of exposure and ultimately get moving.

    David, Adam and Lucy's number one goal is to provide you with a first class service from start to finish - they offer an honest approach with realistic goals and, of course, a friendly smile along the way.

    Here they answer your questions about what Reality can offer:

    Q: Will someone be available to offer support if I need it?

    A: Yes - and this will always be a senior member of staff. Our directors run the agency and they are prepared to go that extra mile to help you to sell your home and achieve your goals. They are available on a daily basis to answer your questions and give you the benefit of the extensive experience that many other agents lack. From initial contact right through to after sales support, one of them will be by your side and striving for success.

    Q: I can't always take calls during working hours, is that a problem?

    A: Not for us at Reality! We are available from 8am to 8pm, seven days a week. With shift work, flexitime, childcare responsibilities and the many demands of modern living, we understand that you need us to be available beyond normal working hours. Furthermore, the many complexities of selling and buying homes do not always take place neatly between the hours of 9am and 5pm. Therefore, we work from 8am to 8pm, every single day of the week to ensure we are there when you need us.

    Q: How satisfied are your clients with the service you offer

    A: Very satisfied. And we have the testimonials to prove it. We appreciate that any estate agent can write testimonials for their website but here at Reality we also have our very own wall of thank you cards and letters in the office. While we do showcase some of our customers' glowing comments on our website, we also remind ourselves how important good service is by pinning up the many notes we receive. These days Google reviews are also very revealing - and we pride ourselves on our abundance of five-star ratings, which are there for all to see.

    Q: I understand that estate agency is not regulated in the same way as many other industries and those working within it do not have to be qualified?

    A: Yes - and this means that standards can slip for those "rogue" agents who do not comply. Lucy qualified with the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA), ensuring we always surpass required standards and implement various codes of practice.

    Q: What else makes you different from other agencies?

    A: We care more because we are family run. We are confident that all estate agents want their businesses to succeed but do their employees take as much pride in their service? Soon to be married, we are partners in and out of the office. Reality is therefore everything to us - it is our passion, our livelihood and at the very heart of our lives.

  • Seller Testimonial

    You really have been lovely.
    "Thank you and Adam and the team for all your help. You really have been lovely and not like another well known tried out agency." - 
  • Seller Testimonial

    The process has been enjoyable.
    "Hi Lucy I hope you have heard by now we have exchanged? Apparently we are home owners how exciting!! As I find being a business owner people are quick to criticise and expect you just to do your job and do it well. I know this isn't always the case and the effort, hours, stress and worry that goes into running a successful business. I must say from day one meeting Adam at the property have been so impressed by your company the way you all have conducted yourself in a friendly and professional manner it really has been a pleasure to deal with you all. As strange as it sounds the process has been enjoyable. I have been back through my emails laughing at our ups and downs. When driving about I see your signs and I smile as I love to see you all doing well. Please don't change your approach special mention to Katie also. Thank you so much for making our dreams come true."

  • Seller Testimonial

    Kindness, integrity, efficiency, and determination
    "In September 2017, I emailed most of the estate agents in Norwich, as I wanted to buy a flat in a very specific location. I immediately got a very nice and helpful response from Adam at Reality Estates, saying they had just sold a flat there, but he would drop letters off to see if anyone else there wanted to sell, which impressed me very favourably. In January, Adam contacted me to say that the flat they were selling was back on the market, so I made a trip (from South Africa!) to see it, meeting both Adam and Lucy at Reality Estates in the course of the viewings. I decided to buy it, and all went very quickly and smoothly until we were about to exchange contracts - at which point the seller 'disappeared', failing to make contact with either Reality or her solicitor. Lucy's response to this problem was amazing; she went round to the seller's house, and then used her 'local network' knowledge to discover that the seller was on a cruise, presumably assuming that all was done and dusted. The vital paperwork was sent from abroad and we completed on the sale in less than seven weeks from the date I made the offer. I shall now be letting the flat through Reality Estates, and would not use another estate agent in Norwich for any future sale or purchase. The property I was buying was a tiny studio flat (not a 6-bedroom mansion!), but I never received anything less than 5-star treatment throughout the negotiations. Thank you very much, Lucy and Adam, for your kindness, integrity, efficiency, and determination."
