    Buying Through Us
    • paragraph

      Initial contact with us will usually be via a website, over the phone or in person at one of our nine offices. You can continue to get up-to-date lists of available properties on an ad hoc basis but you may prefer to register with us. This will allow us to send you details of properties just as they come to the market or when prices are revised.

      Our applicant database is web-based and shared instantly across all nine offices so that you need only sign-up once to be matched with any property that fits your requirements.

      You can register, update your details and requirements or de-register through this website. You will receive notification of new properties via e-mail and can download full colour particulars from your web portfolio.

      Alternatively, you can also register by contacting one of our offices where a member of staff will take your details and discuss the current market and properties available with you. We endeavour to get all staff to see the property but, where this has not been possible, someone who has seen it can ring you back.

      If any property is of interest please contact the relevant office to discuss it further and to make arrangements for a viewing.

      Once you make an offer it will be submitted in writing to the vendors. The staff will need to collect personal details from you, if not already known, such as the position of your own sale and availability of finance.

      We will advise you of the outcome of any offer. Once an offer is accepted, we will notify your solicitors at the same time as the vendors. Because agents can speak to both buyers' and sellers' solicitors we will keep in touch with you during the sale process with updates, up to the point at which contracts are exchanged .

      Following exchange of contracts we will liaise with you and the vendor about the hand over of keys at completion. This usually takes place in our office but with planning a member of staff may be able to meet you at the property.

      Rachael James MARLA

      Partner, Head of Lettings

      Rachael grew up in North Devon and moved to Dorset after taking A Levels where her career in estate agency started in Blandford Forum working for a national company. After five years, the faster way of life of the South East seemed far more exciting and she spent many years working in Henley-On-Thames as a sales manager. Rachael then found that lettings seemed more of a challenge and she studied for her ARLA qualification.

      Family and the beautiful Dorset countryside were sorely missed and she moved back to Shaftesbury 8 years ago starting her career with Symonds and Sampson at the Dorchester Branch covering the then head of lettings for her maternity leave. An opportunity was then given to start the North Dorset lettings department and she is now based in the Blandford office as Head of Lettings with a large property portfolio.

      Rachael enjoys cooking for family and friends and hill walking around the county with her partner John.
