Our percentage of local sales is very high for our size and our turnaround is swift. We've spent the last 25 years getting to know every inch of the Harrogate district and its property market, and we study it constantly. That knowledge, and our unique sales approach – always friendly, never pushy – means we’re unusually good at finding buyers.
It doesn’t mean we charge more – in fact our rates are very competitive. We’re able to do that because we’ve kept our team small and stuck to our principles of honesty, attention to detail and proper customer care. So while we have all the selling tools that modern estate agents have at their disposal, no home we sell is ever lost in the crowd, or treated second-best because we have a larger property on our books.
We give you our full attention and make sure we’re with you at every step. In short, we actually care – after all, this could be one of the most important transactions of your life.
