Top Tips for Sellers when Choosing the Right Estate Agent:

Beware agents who try to impress you with an over-inflated asking price. This usually results in the property taking longer to sell and going “stale” on the market, resulting in a low eventual sale price. Our track record proves that our pricing policy secures excellent prices for our clients. We price ambitiously, but with realism.

Avoid agents who seek to tie you in to a long period of sole agency. What’s the benefit to you? Often this is a sign that the agent may not be fully confident about their ability to sell quickly, or, worse, without a subsequent price reduction. We don’t ask for any period of sole agency. If you no longer enjoy working with us, we believe you should have the right to fire us!

Choose an established agent who specialises solely in your area, rather than one trying to break in to it. Our sole focus and area of intense specialisation since 2014 is the Riddlesden area of Keighley. Nowhere else - this is our patch!

Make sure you’ll be dealing with the same person throughout the sale, including viewings, negotiation and sale progression. We believe in full accountability from well-trained property professionals who make a personal commitment to each of our valued clients.

(Most agents ignore this): Make sure your agent helps you with your legal pack even before they find a buyer. This avoids the greatest reason for sales falling through – legal delay!

Top Tips for Landlords when Choosing the Right Letting Agent:

Today’s rental landscape is incredibly complex, with over 120 associated regulations. Ignorance of the law is no defence and if your agent is not fully up to speed you could be personally liable for any non-compliance. We know our stuff – it’s what we do!

Don’t necessarily accept the first tenant. This is your cherished investment and it must deliver reliable returns. So choose an agent that is passionate about referencing, and who has strict tenant selection procedures in place.

Check the agent’s void period. The national average void period between tenancies, according to ARLA, is 28 days. We think this is unacceptable. That’s why our average void period is ZERO days. Same with arrears, same with evictions. Zero. Our landlords sleep at night.

Does your agent have a great relationship with their tenants? Happy tenants pay higher rents, on time every time, and they stay longer. So check out the agent’s independent tenant reviews online. They should be impressively good. You can see ours here…

Avoid agents that sting you over maintenance, or who outsource to rogue traders. A dripping tap should not justify a £140 plumber’s call-out fee! A good agent should have their own maintenance person on hand 24h a day, often without charge for such minor issues.

Choose letting professionals who regard themselves not just as letting agents, but as your investment managers. Do they speak your language and seek to maximise your yield and return on investment at every opportunity? Do they help you make brave but responsible decisions? We do.
