Off-market sales now account for more than 40% of the market for homes above £1 million.
By searching proactively and utilizing my close relationships with both local estate agents and private contacts, I will find you properties that have yet to reach the market.
My job is to understand what is really important to you and your family. I will meet you, either at your home or here in the Cotswolds, and together we will hone your brief. I then find the house that matches your needs as perfectly as possible.
I give you insight.
My local knowledge will provide you with the sort of intelligence that you could only obtain by living here. I can tell you which villages are unspoilt, which estates are nice to border, where the best schools are, realistic commuting times and so much more. I know these things because I've lived them.
I save you time.
It’s impossible truly to judge a property by its particulars. This means you either end up flogging around houses which turn out to be duds or discounting ‘hidden gems’. I will visit dozens of properties on your behalf but will only show you the ones that meet your needs.
I save you money.
My current and in depth knowledge of the market means that I know the real value of any given property. I use this, together with my experience in negotiating, to get the best value out of your budget - whilst offsetting my fee in the process.
I let you know what’s feasible.
I know the local architects, builders and planning experts who can tell you whether it's possible to extend or renovate, and what it would cost.
I’m with you every step of the journey.
Not only will I find your dream house but I can help you with everything that comes next. I can advise you on solicitors and surveyors and find you interior and landscape designers. I can help you with choice of schools for your children (both state and private). I’ll even help you find your first dog!
I make it fun.
After all, finding your dream country house is exciting - for both of us.
