Independent estste agents 'all the time', I will never use a corporate agent again. My experience with Rowland Gorringe has been nothing but positive. They listen, they do not try to sell all and sundry IE not tied to achieving targets/hits on mortgage sale, solicitor sale etc. They send genuine buyers suited to your property. My advice if putting your house on the market with a corporate agent, is to insist on running your own viewings if you have the time and courage; with the purpose of asking each viewer the property type they were seeking, price bracket and their current position. From personal experience and knowledge of friends who fell into the same trap of going with highest valuation (corporate) the majority of viewers sent were either short on budget, not suited to the property description and not in a position to proceed. Once a few have passed through the door, you are then advised to reduce! Good sales trick! An independent are happy to try your value expectations with the advantage of sending genuine viewers suited to your property on a positive tarrif. Remember we all search Rightmove; corporate have no additional power apart from hard sales, targets and unnecessary indulgent apps. Final note; Rowland Gorringe communications has been second to none! Happy home sales whoever you choose!
