How does it work?

Our sales process consists of six simple steps, making selling your home with us smooth and stress-free.


A friendly chat and your free valuation

One of our team will visit you to introduce themselves and our services. They won't take up much of your time; they'll be able to discuss your expectations for the sale and provide you with an informed opinion as to the current open market value of your property.


Details, plans and photography

Once you are happy to proceed, we'll arrange to come and photograph your property. We'll take care of everything, from all the vital measurements to making sure we understand the best selling points of your home, so that we can make the most of them.


Uncomplicated, effective marketing

Getting the marketing right is essential when putting a property on the housing market.

As well as the usual property sites, your home will go on our bespoke website and several leading property portals. It will also be put on display at your local Pocock + Shaw branch.

Good to know

Effective & attentive sales progression is our speciality, alongside a clear understanding of the local area and housing market.


Attracting the right buyers for you

Once you start to get viewings, our team of sales specialists will spring into action, to inspire potential buyers, and help them fall in love with your property.


Negotiations and making the sale

We have a skill for securing offers from buyers. We'll know your property and it's value inside out at this stage, so once the negotiating has begun we'll be sure to achieve a price that you will find acceptable.


Sales progression to completion

Once an offer has been accepted, your solicitor will then deal with the legal work, and this is where our true talents shine. We'll monitor the sale's progress throughout this time to ensure you are kept up to date and informed.

Looking for a solicitor? We're always more than happy to recommend someone for you to use.

Online property marketing

We market all properties online too – You'll find us on all of the standard sites, and as soon as it hits the market your local followers will get to see your property on Facebook.
