We are Winchester’s award winning, independent estate agents. We take immense pride in our proactive approach to selling properties and dedication to the excellent customer service which has won us the award of best estate agents in Winchester at the British Property Awards in both 2016 & 2017.
We know selling your property can be one of the largest and most important transactions you ever undertake. So we’ll work hard to help you maximise the potential value of your home while making your move as stress and hassle-free as possible.
We take pride in giving every property with 100% focus and attention, whether your house is worth £150,000 or £10,000,000. We don’t believe in giving a different level of service based on the value of your property and work on the basis that every property should be given the best possible chance of selling at its maximum price.
Whether you have a studio apartment or a 6 bed executive home, we provide professional photographs, a full floorplan and glossy brochures for every property we sell with the same dedication and proactivity from each member of staff.
One of the reasons we outperform other Winchester estate agents is our unique staff structure.
A dedicated member of our team is allocated to each stage of the process. From valuation, marketing and selling, to after-sales care and sales progression each of us devotes 100% of our time to one key task. We excel at our given roles meaning you benefit from a quicker, smoother and less stressful moving experience.
We know that when you’re letting a property, whether it is part of an investment portfolio or your family home, you don’t just want a tenant quickly, you want the right tenant. That is one who will take care of your property.
We have the drive, experience and proactive approach to successfully let your property but also the knowledge and procedures in place to identify the best possible tenant for it. So you can choose us with complete confidence and peace of mind.
Headed up by our Lettings Director Daniel Bapty, our lettings team has a wealth of experience in the Winchester market. We’ve successfully let a broad range of properties, including:
1 to 2 bedroom apartments
2 to 4 bedroom terrace and semi-detached houses
Large detached family and executive homes
We’re expert at identifying good tenants and use our experience and procedures to select those who – like us – believe in looking after your property as if it was their own.
The lettings market is highly competitive, so we’ll work hard on your behalf. Our dedicated lettings team are passionate about being the best in the local lettings market and doing their best for you.
As well as finding the right tenant for your rental property, we also offer the right fully-comprehensive, hassle-free property management service.
We do lettings differently, too. Many of our competitors outsource their property management to a third-party company, who isn’t necessarily local. The result? An inferior and less proactive service.
We’re proud to be one of the few letting agents who offer you a fully in-house property management service. Being local to your property means we can maintain a proactive management programme and respond instantly to any issues, should they occur. This minimises the impact on you, your tenants and your property, while maximising your return on it.
Our property management team, headed up by Lisa Malone, is responsible for the day-to-day management of our rental properties. They focus on every aspect, from rent collection and property maintenance to lease renewals.
We like to keep everything local – especially the contractors and trades’ team we’ve already built up – and are ideally placed to negotiate favourable rates for the maintenance of your property.
And here’s another difference with our letting service. We believe we are the only estate agent in Winchester who does not charge a mark-up on any works carried out via our property management team. This means you get the best price for activities such as EPCs, building work, inventories and gas safety certificates. We earn our fees from the management of your property, so we believe it is wrong to charge you more for someone else’s work.
buy-to-let investment consultancy
The buy-to-let market is becoming increasingly popular as an investment vehicle. With people finding they are getting poor returns for their money from the banks, many are turning towards property investment to achieve greater rewards.
We know that buying the right investment property can be a difficult decision. Especially when you get agents telling you what you want to hear, in order to get you to invest in their property. This is why we set up a free and impartial buy-to-let investment consultancy, managed by our Lettings Director, Daniel Bapty.
With a wealth of experience, Daniel can advise you on any properties that you have seen and provide you with an informed and impartial assessment of rental returns, suitability to let out and accurate sales value. We will help you decide whether it is the right property for your requirements and, if it is, indicate the appropriate offer to make.
Why do we offer this service for free? Simply because we would like to have the opportunity to help you let any property you eventually choose to buy.
Land & New Homes
There are many potential development opportunities across Winchester that go unnoticed. Perhaps you have a large back garden, a bungalow with potential to extend, a dilapidated building or simply a plot of land? With the right advice and guidance, these opportunities can be capitalised on, resulting in significant financial gain.
We’ve handled developments of all types and sizes. From small back gardens suitable for an extra home, to larger plots of land with a GDV in excess of £2,000,000.
Our connections with local developers, who will help you maximise the value of your land and realise the full potential in your asset, have proved to be invaluable to our clients over the years.
