What are the benefits of choosing an independent estate agent?

Here at Sewell & Gardner we understand that moving home can be an extremely stressful time for you. Our aim is to make the transition as smooth as possible by keeping you updated on the progress of your sale from start to finish, relieving you of the hassle of having to chase agents and solicitors for feedback. We know this gets tiresome!

Being an independent agent, we are unable to rely on you just recognising our name, therefore our emphasis must be on customer service. It is essential for usCustomer Service 2013 to have a great reputation locally and this can only come from delivering exceptional customer service. The majority of our business comes from recommendations and repeat business, so we feel that building a fantastic relationship with our clients is of the utmost importance. You will often see us giving back to the local community by sponsoring and actively taking part in local events. If you would like any help in advertising something in the near future then give us a call and we would love to speak to you to find out how we can be of assistance.

You will hear that one of the major benefits to using a corporate agent is the vast stock of applicants that they have due to having multiple offices nationwide. In reality however, how likely is it that an agent based in Manchester for example, is going to speak to their applicant database about your property in Hertfordshire? The answer?  Not very. Internet marketing is so important these days in order to get your property out there to the widest audience possible. Martyn, Hannah and our office administrators work very closely in order to make sure that your home is getting the maximum exposure. Having an in house photographer means that, should we not be getting the response that we are hoping for, we can quickly react by taking new photos and changing the way that the property is being shown. However this is very rarely necessary.

Being a small, family run business, we are able to keep in close contact and have very strong working relationships with each other. This is excellent if you are looking to buy in the area as the communication between offices is outstanding. Where a larger agent may move their staff around between offices, the majority of Sewell and Gardner employees have been with the company for a number of years, making our knowledge of the local market and how it is changing second to none.

If you are considering a move in the near future and would like some honest, friendly advice, please give us a call. We would love to come and see you!
