Blenkin & Co is privately owned and independent, run by its owners to the overwhelming benefit of its clients.
By listing our property on the best property portals we connect to the same buyers as any national or corporate agent, but we run our business without the distraction and costs of their overheads. As a result, we are able to give particular attention to the whole sale process: the negotiation, securing the best deal, finding a buyer on excellent terms and keeping that buyer firmly on track.
Most of our deals are made outside normal working hours; we are on the case all day every day, evenings and weekends, seeing the sale through to its completion and never taking our eyes off proceedings until the contract has formally concluded. Crucially for our clients, a director is always available.
Our good judgement and ability to communicate with all parties is the driving factor behind our success. By delivering straight-talking advice and never refusing difficult phone calls we avoid unnecessary delays and increase the chances of a good outcome.
Sales progress is facilitated enormously by the fact that Edward and Tim, between them, know most local solicitors and surveyors on first name terms. In fact, the whole team at Blenkin & Co is rooted locally, familiar with the geography of the area and plugged in to the local network. This is an alien notion to many estate agents, and certainly to online agents who take the fee upfront and therefore have no incentive to do anything but the bare minimum.
