    Marketing and the London Office

    We are members of The London Office which provides us with a central London base to display and hold particulars of properties for sale. The office is manned by experienced agents and is situated in St James' Place just off St James'. From time to time we hold exhibitions either at the London office or at the Move to the Country Show when members of staff from our local offices meet buyers from the capital and home counties.

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.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      Exceeded expectations throughout
      Hi, I have just exchanged on the sale of a property which Neal Wilson at your Wimborne office marketed for me. His client service really has been exceptional and I wanted to let you you know. He has exceeded my expectations throughout the whole sales process. He has been extremely professional, knowledgable, proactive and diligent throughout. It has been very reassuring knowing that he has been dealing with the sale as he quickly earned my confidence that he would do a great job and has gone above and beyond my expectations of great service. He also has a very nice way with people, very calming and polite and gets the right message across. Neal has been superb throughout and is a massive asset to your firm. I really felt that he deserved proper recognition, thus this email. I have also given the office a five star review on google which reflects the service Neal has provided.
