Free professional photos

We won't cut corners with your photos.

We'll commission a professional property photographer to make the very most of your property's potential.

There is no charge for this essential service.

We'll always get back to you

Our negotiators are all very experienced and know how important it is to provide you with first-hand feedback on every viewing.

We make sure this is one of our key priorities every day.

Graphic designer brochures

Our in-house graphic designer will design a bespoke marketing brochure for your property which is printed on thick glossy card.

This standard is very unusual nowadays as most agents look to cut costs.

Providing you with an excellent personal service really matters to me -- it's the very foundation of our business.

'Early Bird' - a unique property marketing opportunity

No other local estate agents have this

At 3:30 pm on the day your property 'goes live' we will email details to over 5,700 eager property-buyers.

They have all signed up so they can find out about new properties first.

Your property will also be listed at the top the of search results on our website and feature a special Early Bird countdown timer which puts it right in front of the buyers.

Things we won't do -- worth a quick read

These are are few of things we don't do to make sure our estate agency service is conducted with the interests of our sellers as our priority.

We won’t tie you into a long-term contract

This is not in your interest — don’t fall for it.

It’s so important we have written a whole article about it explaining why you should think carefully if another agent asks you to sign a lengthy contract locking you in.

We will not overvalue your property to win you business

This is critical.

In this internet-age data is everywhere. Property buyers are smart and can see on the website portals when you have reduced your price because your property hasn’t sold.

This puts them off viewing.

Read our article about how important it is to get your asking price spot on from the outset.

We do not pay our staff monthly commission

Not because we are mean – all our estate agency staff receive quarterly bonuses depending on how well our business does.

And that means how many houses we sell for our clients not how many we list.

It also means that we do not have a conflict of interest and our valuers can give you an honest idea of what your property will sell for without worrying about their next pay cheque.

Indeed, most of our valuers are owners in the business. We are here for the long haul (over 170 years so far) and our reputation for integrity really matters to us.

We won’t send someone without years of experience to value your home

It’s likely that your property is your most valuable asset.

You can rest assured that all our valuers have at least five years’ experience valuing property in the area – four have over 15 years of experience of selling houses.

They have pretty much seen everything and are well-placed to support you from the initial marketing advice to the day you hand over your key.

We won’t baffle you with estate agents jargon!

If you’d like a straight-forward chat about how best to go about selling your property and find out it’s current value please give me a call on 01233 506260 or you can email me at alex.davies@hobbsparker.co.uk

Or, if you think one of our other valuers might be better for your property here are their details.
