A good estate agent understands the importance of providing quality marketing in conjunction with a professional, honest and friendly service. This is exactly what we strive to deliver at Andrew Downing-Booth Estate Agents. We are an entirely independent estate agent which means that we are able to offer a personalised service to each and every client, as well as marketing that will make your home stand out from the crowd.
The Personal Touch, Overseen By Andrew
We work as a very close team, but every single property will be personally overseen by our director Andrew, who has over 12 years experience in the industry within the Staffordshire area.
We understand the importance of being in the best location to showcase your home; this is why we are located in a contemporary, renovated office at the heart of the city centre, and utilise illuminated window displays to show off your home.
Out Of Hours Service
Unlike most High Street Agents, we are contactable until 9pm every single day of the week. In addition, we are able to conduct viewings both at weekends and during weekday evenings. We effectively make ourselves available at convenient times for your prospective buyers.
Our Online Package
The property portals are where we really get to showcase your home, which is why we pay for your property to be advertised on the three most popular sites: Rightmove, Zoopla and Prime Location.
The photos of your property are quite possibly the most important part of your marketing. Using a high specification Canon camera, along with our professional property photography course training, we ensure high class images for all aspects of your advertising.
It is your estate agent’s job to make your home stand out. Whilst we utilise the usual floorplans and For Sale boards as standard, being independent enables us to tailor what we can offer to each client. It also means quirky and individual property descriptions, which make your property much more memorable to a prospective purchaser.
Honest, Friendly and Professional Advice
Ask most people what they expect when they walk into an estate agents, and they probably will not say a ‘friendly and warm’ greeting. We want to break that mould, with our clients feeling comfortable to pop into our office for advice: expect a cuppa or hot chocolate upon arrival! Our experienced team offer professional and honest advice in order to give you the best chance of selling your property or finding your perfect new home.
One of the most important services an estate agent can offer is a sales progression package, and we appreciate how stressful this part of the process can be. We commit to chase every agreed sale on a regular basis, and to keep you informed right through to the completion of your sale.
Choosing the right solicitor at the right time can be the difference between completing on your sale and losing your buyer, as well as having an offer accepted on your perfect property and missing out on your dream home. We advise having your solicitor/conveyancer instructed prior to agreeing a sale, as this can shave weeks off the time it will take to complete your sale. At the same time, if you find a property that is extremely popular, and you have already chosen a legal representative, this improves your chances of having your offer accepted over other interested parties. Please contact a member of our team to discuss how we can help you find the right solicitor, at the right time for you.
Buying a property is one of the most expensive transactions you will make during your life, so it is important to shop around. Our local financial services expert can do the legwork for you, and even has access to rates which are not available on the high street. Their expert advice and knowledge will help you find the best rate. Here to share an insight of the mortgage industry with you and to cut through the jargon, they can offer tips from how to improve your credit score, to understanding the remortgage process. They can help with a variety of aspects including first time buyers, buy-to-let, moving home, new build, self-build, shared ownership or mortgage protection. Call our team to find out more.
Not all properties benefit from selling on the open market, and not all clients are looking for the same result. For that reason, we offer an auction service which can be the perfect fit for the right property, and by using Andrew Downing-Booth Estate Agents, you can be confident that you will receive the best quality advertising in a highly competitive market place.
