With most of our staff living and working locally, we consider ourselves a group of enthusiastic locals who are heavily involved in the immediate community.
This gives us tremendous insight into the local market: Previous trends, current movements, and future forecasts. And, it is quite possible we have helped a number of people in your street to sell their home or find a right tenant for them.

The difference between presenting a property correctly or incorrectly can sometimes influence the sale price by up to 10%. For this reason, we recommend you to consider the presentation of your home very carefully. Part of this process is working with you to make sure your home is presented to its best advantage and has the maximum appeal for buyers.
Experience tells us that sprucing your home is well worth the effort to and usually has a positive impact on the price.
A few simple techniques can make all the difference in securing a sale, and, by making sure your house is presented in the best possible light, it will have a dramatic impact on the selling price of your property.
The most important thing to remember is first impressions counts. Once on the market, you need to disassociate yourself and remove any emotional connection to the house… don’t look backwards, look to the future! Time is of the essence in these situations, and hence the presentation process should begin at the exact time you decide to sell your house
