What is Behind Elizabeth Davenport's Success Story?

"In reality, the reason for our success is very simple" - admits Mark. "Correct property pricing coupled with very high quality marketing materials. This means our properties stand out and attract many more viewings & offers than those on sale with other Estate Agents."

"This powerful marketing strategy means that a very high proportion of our housing stock is always SOLD STC resulting in only a small number of properties on sale at any one t

We used Elizabeth Davenport to sell my mothers bungalow for me. They are far and away better than any other estate agents we have dealt with and as my husband is in property we have used a lot. From the initial meeting through to completion they were professional, friendly and more importantly on the ball. They knew exactly where the purchasers were in terms of selling their home and buying ours. They pushed when needed and got results. Special thanks go to Jo Spencer who really kept things mov...

The team at Elizabeth Davenport were at all times friendly and courteous. Elizabeth Davenport promotes its business on the basis that it sells properties quickly and, in for us, this proved to be the case. After 8 months with a different agent we engaged Elizabeth Davenport to sell the property. Within two days an excellent marketing pack had been put together and virtually immediately viewings started. A cash offer was received after 12 days of marketing and a sale, at a price very close to...

We went down the traditional route of having three estate agents.Mark Walmesley from Davenports was the only one who could estimate a valuation on our property.He had the vision,appreciation and potential to market our property.His background of the company was good and interesting to know and the visual displays of the brochures was a clear indication of how our property was to be marketed.We decided on Elizabeth Davenport.When Mark Walmesley came and took the photos,much thought and conside...

I have nothing but good things to say about George, Marc and Yvonne. They were the only agents of the 4 we asked to quote who looked as if they were actually interested in the details of the house and they valued the house accordingly. The photo's they took of the house for their website and adverts were in a different league quality wise to other Estate Agents. Within 24 hours of the property being up for sale we had numerous viewings arranged and accepted an offer within a week. Th...

Thank you very much for the kind words. We too are delighted at the response and really wish you all of the best with your onward and exciting move! I think the experience with your home shows that price reductions are not the way to achieve a sale. Unless properties are marketed to the very best potential then certainly the highest possible price won't be achieved. Thanks again. ...

Our experience with Elizabeth Davenport was a very positive one. We chose them above other agents for a number of reasons. 1. Their marketing strategy of maximising viewings by not massively overpricing. 2. The excellent quality of the brochures they produced to promote their properties. 3. The care taken to show the best features of the property by taking a lot of very high quality well framed photographs, many more than in other agents material. 4. Their relatively small team, we felt gav...

I found Mark very committed to selling my house. He made the sale of my house go through with ease for both myself and the buyer which is what a good estate agent like Mark can do.

Thanks Ann for the kind words. Selling your home was particularly satisfying personally as I know sales had been attempted unsuccessfully with other agents before. It's a great house and I genuinely think that both you and the buyer worked well to agree the sales/purchase price. This was one of those lovely scenarios that left each party satisfied and happy. Thanks again. ...

We instructed Mr. Hartshorn in connection with the compulsory sale of our property to the Department for Transport in connection with HS2. Despite the dilatory nature of the way HS2's agent conducted his activities, Mr. Hartshorn continued to push matters forward and spent a long time prodding their agent and providing further data to justify his initial valuation. To assist, he took his laptop to Canada whilst on holiday and conducted negotiations from there and, after his return to work, check...

George and Yvonne kept in touch with us every step of the way. We had seven viewings in the first five days and we received an offer, which we accepted, on the ninth day. Mark and George arranged and accompanied the viewings and left us little to do but wait for the outcome, we were notified prior to each viewing and r...

Mark visited in the first instance to discuss the process which he did in great detail, we had never sold a house before so it was all new and Mark explained everything clearly. This was followed by a visit from George who took extensive photos which displayed our property in the best possible light, the resulting brochure was excellent quality. When it ...

George from Elizabeth Davenport came to view my property before it was ready to go on the market. This was much appreciated as other agents would have only made the house visit when its ready for Valuation. Selling a house can be an emotional experience and it can take a lot of confidence to make the final decision to sell it. Elizabeth Davenport were excellent in giving that little bit of extra belief that you can go through with a major decision. They gave great advice of what work was needed...

Personally both my partner and I thought Elizabeth Davenports were brilliant. Having had my house on the market for 9 weeks with one of the so called big high street estate agents, we only had a handful of viewings. We felt we were making all the suggestions to try and get more people through our door. We decided to move agents and went for an estate agent that promised to give a realistic valuation of the property. The property details that were sent out to interested parties were professional...

Very satisfied with the service here overall. George came over at short notice to value the property, gave me a realistic valuation rather than an inflated price, and then took care of everything day to day even in the face of me pestering him daily for updates. They found me a buyer in short order, and then handled every aspect of the process for me, which was vital as I live some distance away from the property being sold and could not be there very often. Through the sale process itself I was...
