“Estate agents – Go back to the office and sell homes!” the Government said!
Well it came as a big surprise on the Tuesday evening but because we are a family business we were able to respond and react extremely quickly.
The same evening, I went to the office to make sure the heating was on (our office is north facing so very cool) and prepared the office for working Covid-19 safe, implementing the guidelines for clients and staff.
So, at 08:30 Wednesday morning, while other more corporate companies were having meetings about how and when they could/would open, talking to staff, moving desks etc. We were in the office ready and raring to go!
As an owner run independent we are always able to move fast with decision making, which can often keep us way ahead of our competitors.
With respect of the property market going forward — We can say with great conviction that is definitely busy with enquiries on most properties, there are more coming on and more going under offer. That’s the here and now. Going forward – as a straight-forward and genuine agent, all I can say is – who knows!? We are in uncharted waters.
So, all we can do is make hay while the sun shines! We are ready and very keen to sell homes of all sizes in all areas and are currently taking on new members of the team to help with this.
