The service I provide is extensive and personal to you and your needs. My extremely comprehensive database covers a wide range of houses and apartments, particularly those that will never reach or are not yet on the open market, as well as the most prestigious properties selected from estate agents and other sources.
I find, assess and negotiate the purchase of choice properties at all price levels, for clients with varying requirements, many of them local, that appreciate that many of the best houses and opportunities never each the open market.
My secret weapon is my inside knowledge. Having lived and worked in the BH13/14 area for over 20 years, I am very well connected. My relationship with local estate agents and homeowners, other professionals in the top end of the market, means I get to know of very private off-market forthcoming sales. I open doors thanks to my extensive contacts.
I discuss your buying criteria to form a clear picture of your ideal requirements and where you are flexible. I explain trends in the current market and recommend that I drive you round the area to identify your style preference and ideal location and discuss the local trends and transactions. I offer this as a complimentary service ahead of engagement.
The Poole market is full of housing gems and investment opportunities as well as pitfalls for the unwary. My skill is in understanding the complexities of this very local market.
I visit, appraise and then shortlist both available properties and those soon to enter the market using our extensive private contacts and market intelligence. The majority of my purchases involve properties that never reach the open market. I accompany you to visit as many of the properties as you wish, taking perhaps a few hours, and seldom more than a day. Because my preliminary work is so thorough, this final stage is the only extended time you have to dedicate personally to the process. Many clients, particularly those based abroad or outside of the area, find this aspect of my service especially welcome.
If the initial selection isn't right, I search again, and I keep on searching until you are satisfied. I will continue this process for six months from being engaged.
Once a property is selected, I negotiate on your behalf to secure the best price. After your offer is accepted, I oversee the entire transaction by dealing with the vendor or their representatives. I can also liaise with your own legal and financial advisors. If you encounter any hiccups with the purchase or have problems with the survey, I’m able to draw on my experience and various local contacts to regain specialist reports, mediate with all parties and resolve the issues. My expertise in dealing with a range of property and financial professionals and potentially complex legal issues ensures that the sale is concluded to your best advantage. If you are relying on the sale of your current property, I would liaise with everyone involved to ensure a simultaneous exchange of contracts. I won’t stop working until the day you move in.
I also know everything about the local area; whether it’s the best schools and catchments, nearby dentists and doctors, places to wine and dine, cut throughs and local hidden springs, down to where the sun sets on your specific home! Just think of me as your very own Kirsty Allsop.
I am successful because I am trusted, knowledgeable, tenacious, pro-active and realistic.
If instructed, I will work tirelessly to find you the right house, in the right location and then negotiate the very best price because, unlike an estate agent, I’m working solely for YOU, the buyer.
