Find your perfect property
Our aim is to find and purchase or rent the ideal property at the most competitive price. We do this by going through the following steps:
The first step is to meet you personally, in your current home, and understand your priorities. What we do is personal, we are a people business and we care about you and want to work with you and be on your wavelength. In essence this is a chemistry meeting as well as a fact finding mission that includes finding out where you want to live, your budget and something about your dream home. Understandably it is vital that we identify what makes your perfect property.
Once we have established your requirements we will go away and produce a shortlist of suitable properties from all sources (including off-market, private vendors, estate agents and internet sales) that will get you thinking and hopefully one you may not have thought of… such as a converted mill!
No stone will be unturned and part of our service ensures, amongst many things, that you are equipped with local knowledge including where the best schools are, which is the closest hospital as well as the best transport links and other important amenities such as pre-schools, libraries and shopping.
A survey is a very important part of the buying process. As a result we would be able to instruct, on your behalf, suitable and reliable surveyors that we work with on a regular basis. This also applies to solicitors, many of whom we know and work with in the local area.
This is where we save you money…and time and wasted journeys! We negotiate on your behalf having ascertained all of the available information supplied by the vendor as well as any additional information such as planning permission, council permits and anything else we feel you need to be equipped with. Invariably we are able to glean more knowledge from the vendor or estate agent than you would, thus allowing us to negotiate and attain the best possible price.
Our aim is to help you achieve favoured buyer status on a home as there is often more than one bidder on the most sought after houses, thus enabling you to secure your chosen property.
We will action the completion on your behalf taking away all the stress and strain. This will involve making the necessary arrangements to obtain the keys and meeting you at the property so that the handover goes smoothly.
We would be more than happy to meet with and coordinate removal companies as well as ensuring the utilities are transferred in a timely fashion.
When we find your dream home (or wreck!) you may well wish to make changes to it. We would be able to direct you to suitable builders, architects, planning consultants, interior decorators and surveyors.
Our service does not end once you have moved into your dream house. We care about you and will always be there to offer professional advice or guidance that you may need at a later date.
This could include advice on building work, extensions worth carrying out such as on kitchens or lofts as well as the all-important children’s Wendy house or tree hideout!
We are always there for our clients. You may want further thoughts on the property market in general or connections further afield.
Hampshire is a beautiful county on the southern coast of England. Hampshire’s tourist attractions include many seaside resorts, the motor museum at Beaulieu, and national parks in both the New Forest and the South Downs.
Hampshire has a long maritime history and two of England’s largest ports, Portsmouth and Southampton, lie on its coast.
The county town is Winchester, the former capital city of England.
It is the most populous ceremonial county in England excluding the metropolitan counties, with almost half of the population living within the South Hampshire conurbation which includes the cities of Southampton and Portsmouth.
Hampshire is notable for housing the birthplaces of the Royal Navy, British Army, and Royal Air Force. It is bordered by Dorset to the west, Wiltshire to the north-west, Berkshire to the north, Surrey to the north-east, and West Sussex to the east. The southern boundary is the coastline of the English Channel and the Solent, facing the Isle of Wight.
It has excellent commuter links to London via road and rail.
BATH & N E SOMERSET
Bath and North East Somerset covers an area of 220 square miles, of which two thirds is green belt. It stretches from the outskirts of Bristol, south into the Mendip Hills and east to the southern Cotswold Hills and Wiltshire border. The city of Bath is the principal settlement in the district, but Banes also covers Keynsham, Midsomer Norton, Radstock Westfield and the Chew Valley.
The area has varied geography including river valleys and rolling hills. Bath developed as a spa resort in Georgian times and remains a major cultural tourism centre. It has World Heritage City status and is considered one of the most beautiful cities to live in England.
There are excellent transport links with mainline trains to London and the city is located approximately fifteen miles south of junction 18 of the M4. There is easy access to the beautiful surrounding countryside.
The beauty of the Cotswolds AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) is intertwined with that of the villages that seem almost to grow out of the landscape and the attractive small towns which are built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow limestone).
The area lies mainly within Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire, but extends into parts of Wiltshire, Somerset, Worcestershire, and Warwickshire.
The hills give their name to the Cotswold. In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and the area remains affluent and has attracted discerning people who own second homes or have chosen to retire there.
There are Cotswold towns including Bourton-on-the-Water, Broadway, Burford, Chipping Norton, Cirencester, Moreton-in-Marsh, Northleach, Stow-on-the-Wold, Stroud, and Winchcombe that all offer attractive locations and facilities. The Cotswolds area is one of England’s favourite destinations.
A mostly rural county Wiltshire offers some stunning scenery and pretty market towns all within easy reach of London and other major towns. Wiltshire is characterised by its high downland and wide valleys. Salisbury Plain is famous as the location of the Stonehenge and Avebury stone circles and other ancient landmarks and as the main training area in the UK of the British Army. There are numerous stunning parts of the county including the Marlborough Downs which are part of the North Wessex Downs AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), and in addition part of the Cotswolds (AONB), in the county’s northwestern corner, amongst others.
In addition several of its primary schools that feed into local prep schools such as The Godolphin, Chaffyn Grove, Sandroyd, and Salisbury Cathedral School rank as some of the best in the country. Wiltshire has twenty-nine county secondary schools, of which the largest is in Warminster. Additionally there are approximatley thirteen independent secondaries, including Marlborough College, St Mary’s Calne, and Dauntsey’s, near Devizes.
