03 Mar Online experts will get best price for your Rickmansworth home
The entrepreneur, who has managed a local estate agency in the town before setting up on her own, has worked in the area for over 15 years.
“There is nothing you can teach me about Ricky – I’m an area expert and that explains our success at getting the best prices for our clients in this market.”
The team has just sold a house during an open day in Rickmansworth that went for over the asking price – following 20 viewings. The client has used Place before and was very happy with the results.
Place is an online estate agency, which means they don’t have the overheads of a high street office and choose to spend their money on marketing their clients’ properties instead. They’re a platinum spender with Rightmove, one of the biggest property portals in the UK and the starting point for most homebuyer searches these days.
This means your property will get high prominence on the portal if you instruct Place to sell your home.
“Gone are the days of visiting an area where you want to buy a house, step into an estate agent’s office and collect brochures to follow up the next week. We don’t believe there is a need to have an office any more,” says Sarah.
Being online also means that they’re not bound to traditional working hours and are able to ping back a reply to an email enquiry about a home at 9pm on Rightmove. They also fit in viewings after office hours and on bank holidays.
“We can be open when the high street closes,” she says.
Sarah understood that the way people shop for property was changing and she wanted to create a modern business model, utilising today’s technology, combined with exceptional standards of good old-fashioned customer service, plus lots of extras.
“We broker a deal and get the best price for our clients. Many agents don’t work to get the best price – they are just keen to sell the house quickly to line their own pockets. We are tough and don’t give up until we have the best deal for our clients.”
Back to Ricky, where the team has just sold a flat for a buyer who’ve used them before and has vowed never to use another agent.
“We have a high number of return clients – because they know we get results.
If you want an honest appraisal and a swift sale at the best possible price in Rickmansworth – you can’t go wrong with Place.”
