      Best Price
      I used Trading Places Stretford to sell my 2 bedroom terrace, my house had multiple offers, I achieved £10,000 over the asking which was the best price for my area, I have to say this was due to the staff involved and their ability to sell. I recommend them to all my friends and local people.

      High Standards
      Property went on market quickly and had many viewings the first weekend and so sold quickly. I found all the staff friendly and helpful. I was very pleased with the service I had. When I originally bought my property I was impressed and they brought the same high high standards to the sale.

      Sensitive to all situations
      Having spoken to other estate agents locally I chose Trading Places Stretford to sell my late mother's house. I had been impressed immediately by their sensitivity to my situation whilst not sacrificing an ounce of professionalism or focus on the task in hand. They quickly generated a lot of interest in the house through skilfull marketing and kept me fully up to date with viewings and feedback. The house sold quickly and I have no hesitation in recommending Trading Places, they have a great team.

      Better than other agents
      Just completed on my sale and puchase. Property sold within a week after having an open day on TP's recommendation. Difficult chain and the staff did everything to keep it all together and keep me calm! Had a previous sale collapse via another local agent and vast difference in the quality of service. Very impressed.

      Treat people like people
      Steve and the team proved more than capable throughout our moving process at what is a very stressful time, always had some one to talk to find out how the transaction was coming along, they are people that treat people like people, which is more than can be said for some of the Manchester Agents! My dad subsequently moved his rented property over to Trading Places and has been thanking me ever since.

      No pressure
      My grandmother recently sold a property through Trading Places. She has nothing but praise for all involved! From start to finish, all the staff were wonderful. They made sure she was updated throughout the process. The biggest thing was that she wasn't pressured to go ahead at the time of valuation. We are all very grateful to the staff for their duty of care during this important and emotional process. Thank you!

    My father ran his own business all his life as did my grandfather before him. In fact the office where Trading Places started has been in our family since 1977. Initially my father ran it as a clothes shop called Pants. It has now been the head office for Trading Places since 1988. I first set out as a youth trainee at the local Trafford Borough Council and they assisted me with my surveying degree. I moved within a year into estate agency and quickly gained promotion working for independent and corporate agents.

    At the age of only 23 I acquired Trading Places and followed in the family tradition of running my own Independent family business. Within three months of opening I became Stretford’s largest agent. The business grew quickly as my passion for selling and for my home town of Stretford gave me a massive advantage over other agents in the area.

    At 28 I opened the Urmston office and rapidly became the biggest in Urmston as I had the advantage of having sold for more people in Stretford who were looking to move to Urmston. The same happened with Chorlton and now I help people move from Chorlton through to Urmston and back as all my offices go hand in glove working to help people purchase in the areas they want and help clients maximise the price they achieve for their property.

    I hear people advertising they have a local expert in property. This gives me a smile as I am a true local expert. I have worked and lived in the local area for 40 plus years now. My knowledge of surveying and property along with local knowledge of areas, schools transport, restaurants and shopping. My company now employs 15 local people who share my passion for being successful. The one rule I impress on my staff is clients are not just numbers. There is no better feeling than handing over a new property card and the keys to someone for their new house. That is the most rewarding part of our jobs. I still get the same thrill out of selling a house as when I first set up the business.

    On a corporate side we are members of the Relocation Network who link all Independent agents in England so we can offer nationwide coverage despite being an independent family run business.

    If you are thinking of selling I would be delighted for you to invite me to confirm how much your property is worth
