Independent estate agents lead the way

3 March 2011

As the housing market continues its recovery independent estate agents are being praised for their high levels of customer service and ability to sell houses.

In a market that includes several large corporate bodies of estate agents, the smaller independents have developed their service to ensure that they are the first port of call for home movers who want expert advice about their local area.

Independent estate agents have also expanded their service offering to include the additional services home movers need, such as conveyancing and mortgage advice.

The benefits of working with an independent agent include:

• Expert local knowledge
• Experience in selling property in the area
• Free, professional house valuations
• Personal care and attention to each home mover

Nigel Higgins, Move with Us Director, commented: “Many independent and accredited estate agents across the country continue to deliver great service as they diversify into complementary areas. By remaining local and owner-managed, we believe that independent estate agents have an advantage over centralised and employee-managed models.”
