Sales and lettings focus heavily on customer service and have built a strong rapport which encourages repeat business. “Fundamentally, we believe our fantastic track record is down to our professional frank approach to property, commitment to customer service combined with an experience and knowledge of the local area which is second to none. Above all we really do care and love what we do, because finding our customers a property to call home is incredibly rewarding.” Technology is a key part of the firm’s service offering, and as Wayne emphasises, it is central to ensuring the firm’s continued success. “In order to meet our clients’ needs in the ever digitalised marketplace, we use the latest technology with an excellent computer package which ensures that all clients are kept fully informed if they wish by email or text, and we have a town centre office which is open seven days a week and still advertise heavily within the local paper and local community. Our cutting edge Team computer package will help move the business forward and provide a slick marketing service for vendors and purchasers alike with innovative email and mail alerts giving their vendors the edge over their competitors. “Whilst it is a well-known fact that internet marketing is very important but 42% of all buyers come via office visits or phone calls proving that the modern agent cannot rely on internet marketing alone. As such we are also committed to excellence in client service at all times. Our team have worked together for many years and are able to offer our clients, whether buying or selling, the highest level of service with fantastic feedback with existing sales, buying, selling or letting.” The firm’s lettings department was formed in 2009 and is now a major force in the local lettings field.
