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 eleven 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.

      Dear Ilminster Office, I felt I had to write to say what an excellent service we have received from Tim Bennett. The whole process from beginning to end was stress free and handled in such a quiet way as to make my husband and I feel relaxed through the whole process.

      Thanks for your support in bringing the sale over the line. Your strategy was spot on and definitely hit the target market. The best thing I can say about the brochure was the statement said by our buyer -  " this was the first brochure that told and showed the truth about the property" You definitely made the difference and we are pleased that you confirmed our faith in selecting you. It was a smart move in putting you two together alongside the very professional Melissa Best regards  Mr and Mrs R

    • Seller Testimonial

      The team at Symonds and Sampson, Ilminster, gave us the best possible service. They sold our house, with a refreshingly different approach, and also helped us find our next property. They were unfailingly cheerful, optimistic and professional. Perhaps best of all they went that extra mile, giving us that much-needed advice and guidance to deal with problems along the way.
    • Seller Testimonial

      We sold our property within days of marketing through Symonds & Sampson in May of this year. The description and photographs in the brochure were first class and the service we received from Tim and the team during the sale was faultless.

      We purchased a property through S&S earlier this year. Always helpful, returned our calls, and could answer questions. We will use them if we sell and would recommend without hesitation. Thanks Tim, Georgie and Melissa
    • Buyer Testimonial

      Georgie and Co were great - they were very friendly and really went the extra mile to help me during a quite complicated sale process. Always easy to get hold of and speak to - I was very impressed.
    • Buyer Testimonial

      We have just exchanged contracts having purchased through Symonds & Sampson Ilminster. From start to finish their service has been exceptional, indeed they were the last link in the top end of the chain and were the conscience of the whole chain, clearing blockers and ensuring we were all kept informed. Whilst the whole of the team have been friendly, relaxed but professional our prime contact throughout has been Georgie Wakinshaw, extremely experienced and always a good ear to bounce any queries or questions off of. As always selling and buying is a stressful time for all concerned but Georgie and her colleagues managed to minimise any stress points. Would thoroughly recommend and I don't say that about too many Estate Agents. Mr A
    • Buyer Testimonial

      A brilliant team: nothing was too much trouble, however stupid my questions might have been! Can't recommend them highly enough.
