The most suitable method of sale for you

Private Treaty Sales. A buyer and seller negotiate through an estate agent until a sale price and terms are agreed.

Sale by Tender. Prospective purchasers are invited to submit their best price, usually in writing, by a given date and time.

Sale by Auction. A property is offered for sale by public auction on a given date. Interested parties can bid in person, by telephone, online or by proxy. Contracts are exchanged on the fall of the hammer, with a pre-agreed completion date (usually 28 days). Read about our leading Property Auction Department here. 

Off Market Sales. ​We have successfully sold property by all methods of sale across the whole region, ranging from the smallest pony paddock to commercial farms and estates, achieving fantastic results for our clients.

Buying services. ​Whilst this page focusses largely on selling or letting farms and land, we regularly act for clients who are expanding their rural business, secure the best terms for the purchase.​

Our Step by Step Sales Service

In-depth property consultancy. ​Our service starts with a free, no obligation and comprehensive appraisal of your property, during which we will offer market advice, discuss the best method of sale to suit your property and – using direct comparables - provide an indication of market value.

Professional photography and floor plans. First impressions count, we will outline the range of marketing material we can use to provide potential purchasers with as much information as possible, including elevated shots, drone photography and 3D virtual tours.

Bespoke brochures. ​We will show you examples of brochures we use, all prepared to a high standard to ensure that your property is presented at its best.

Our Technology.​ A linked database throughout all our offices ensures that your property reaches all buyers looking for a home like yours. Matching people to property is the key to a successful agency.​

Our Network. ​Our reach extends beyond our 16 regional offices to The London Office and their 225 independent estate agents throughout the country, ensuring that your property reaches the widest audience possible.​

Internet Advertising. Your property will be listed on our website as well as the leading portals, Rightmove, Zoopla and Primelocation.

Social Media. Our ever-growing presence on Facebook and Instagram generates a healthy flow of traffic to our website.

Accompanied viewings and feedback. Our agents are trained to ask the right questions to ensure thorough feedback, and to keep you up-to-date at all times

Negotiating Offers. Having an experienced agent to quantify interested parties and help evaluate the potential for a successful sale is crucial to ensure the negotiation and smooth running of your sale.

Legal progression.
Our agents are frequently credited for their experience in dealing with even the most difficult sales, liaising with solicitors and surveyors to ensure that your sale progresses smoothly.
