Why Choose Us

‘We thought the service the company provided was second to none. Correspondence and regular updates with how things are progressing was brilliant. The company provided an excellent value for money service considering the depth and detail of the report. The report itself was easy to understand especially with the colour coding which gives a ready reference guide to the surveyors findings.'

Benefits of selling with us over an online estate agent

We receive our fee on completion

Online agents who want their fee up front and if you don't sell you lose it

We have a 98% success rate at selling properties at our valuation price

A lower proportion of sales are completed online than with traditional agents

We know your neighbourhood and its property market inside out

Online agents don't always provide local experts with local knowledge

We take care of buyers and sellers

Taking charge of communications with buyers and solicitors yourself will be time-consuming and stressful

We will conduct viewings with potential buyers

You'll usually have to conduct viewings yourself, so you'll need to be comfortable showing strangers around your home and be available during evenings and weekends

Speed to market

We aim to get your property 'live' within 4 hours of being instructed. Why wait!

Free market appraisal

We can provide you with a free valuation of your home and useful tips on how to sell. There's no obligation and no pushy sales person, just a realistic price and great advice.

Extensive marketing network

Our mailing list Rightmove, Onthemarket, North Devon Journal, North Devon Gazette, Devon Life.

Competitive commissions

We operate on a 'no sale, no fee' basis. You only pay us when we are successful in selling your property

Constant communication

We work hard to keep you fully updated on the progress of your property. We also provide personalised vendor reports so you see how your property is performing.
