Before marketing our property,£we questioned whether paying for a local estate agent was really worth the money - especially when£you are bombarded with£TV adverts telling you how easy and cheap it is to sell£via an online agent.£Apparently, it's as easy as taking a few photos,£uploading them to£Rightmove, and before the week is out, your property is sold and you're jetting off£into the sunset.
Reality however is very different! We are so pleased that we chose Richard Worth to manage our sale - for two reasons.
First,£our initial buyer pulled out of the sale. This meant we were at risk of£losing out on the property we wanted to buy. Thanks to Callum and£team,£they found us a new buyer and we£accepted an offer just one day after our first buyer had pulled out!£Maybe we were lucky, but without Callum£and team£responding so quickly, I'm sure things could have turned out very differently for us.
Once offers were accepted, it should have all been plain sailing. However, being in a chain£with five parties selling and buying four different properties, we had our fair share of challenges along the way.£The sale of our property was the easy piece,£it was other parts of the chain that caused£us headaches and delays.
Which brings me to the second reason we were pleased to choose Richard Worth. Angela Jennings. Thanks to£Angela, we managed to remain£calm and sane throughout the process and had some laughs along the way.
Having Angela on-board to manage the sales progression was worth the agents fee alone. She was responsive and professional in all of the phone calls and e-mails we exchanged. She kept£us up-to-date with the latest news and was regularly chasing the different parties in the chain to get updates or encourage them to move forward. Angela also had strong relationships with the different local agents and solicitors in the chain which£helped to ensure we£got information promptly.
The entire team at Richard Worth are friendly and helpful and£looked after every aspect of our£sale.£Based on the£excellent service we received, I wouldn't hesitate in using the services of Richard Worth again in the future.
Comment on agent fees
Nobody everÂ gets excited about paying fees, however IÂ was happy that the fees charged were competetive compared to the feesÂ charged by other agents in the area.
