If an Estate Agent gave you a first class service when you last sold a home, why not go back to them? However, if you have not moved for a number of years, or were less than satisfied with the service from your previous Estate Agents, please read on.

As a residential Estate Agent in Harrogate, including joint partner of an Independent partnership and subsequently running my own property consultancy, you will appreciate I have sold and bought a considerable amount of properties for my clients over the last 40 years.

Choosing the most suitable Estate Agent to market and sell your home is vitally important. It can mean the difference between getting the best possible price and selling in a reasonable time, depending on prevailing market conditions, or waiting in ‘limbo’ for many months and not getting a buyer. It is often difficult for a prospective seller to know who to choose to meet their personal requirements, provide the most effective marketing, and ultimately achieve the best price.

Different types of properties require different Estate Agents. Over the years I have valued and sold all styles and types of properties, including unusual, individual, town and country homes.

When advising a prospective client, I always consider the best way to market and sell their property. Depending on the property, and the client’s requirements, all options should be considered, private treaty, tender, auction, before instructing an Estate Agent.

I have personally selected and established a panel of leading Independent Estate Agents, who have sold many millions of pounds worth of homes for my clients, in both good and bad times. The Estate Agents I have introduced have a tried and tested track record for taking care of my clients with proven professional marketing experience, negotiating skills and providing outstanding levels of service. I have always felt it is important that my clients are dealing with partners, senior members of staff and experienced negotiators, who care as much as you and I that a successful outcome is achieved.

A high proportion of my work comes from personal recommendations from past clients, in my mind, the finest business one can possibly have.

My Consultancy, like the property market, has evolved and changed over the years. I no longer provide my own opinion on the value of a client’s home but will be pleased to provide any past, or new clients with an introduction to the most effective Estate Agent to suit them and their type of home. The partners and staff of the Estate Agents I deal with have been looking after my clients for many years and have only retained my business by giving a first class service.

Certain Estate Agents are better for certain styles and types of homes. Even then their niche in a certain sector of the market can change.

I can remove the uncertainty out of choosing your Estate Agent by recommending the most appropriate company for you and your home. They pay my introduction fee, at no extra cost to you, on the successful completion of your sale. This is included within the normal competitive fees the Estate Agents charge. As always, their market appraisal is free and without obligation. If they do not sell your home, I do not earn a fee.

The Estate Agents on my panel value my introductions. They will also value your instructions and sell your home. Please contact me on Harrogate 01423 885758 or mail@simondunn.com
