Why Sell Through Lauristons

Lauristons understand the importance of buying, selling, letting or renting a property and are here to provide the guidance, expertise and advice as you embark on this significant journey. Moving home is one of life’s most critical financial and emotional decisions and you need to choose the right agent.

At Lauristons we pride ourselves on several core values that have stood us in good stead since we opened in 1994 and that have always had the most benefit to our customers.

We employ the best local people, who know our towns, who have a passion to be the best at what they do, to get the best price, to get the result our customers expect.   We then train them to the highest industry standards to make sure the advice they are giving is accurate and appropriate.  

We blend traditional techniques with modern technology to offer a tailored service to each of our clients, knowing what to use and when.  Lauristons have always been at the forefront on industry innovation, so as well as some of the things you might expect such as professional photography, floorplans, high quality property brochures, glossy local magasine advertising, Rightmove, Zoopla and a myriad of other portals, we have invested heavily in new initiatives.   

  

Lauristons state of the art new website launched in late 2017 attracts 1000s of people every day to us, and that Google ranks on page 1 when people search for estate or lettings agents in our towns.  We are available to our customers 24/7 and have made it mobile friendly without the need for extra apps.  We have pioneered a platform to reach out to over 4000 local people through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram who aren't even registered with us to promote every instruction we have to the most relevant audience.  We then use all that data to provide value to our customers through regular updates, local news, useful advice and of course property updates.

As importantly, once we have found your buyer, there are 8-12 weeks of specialised chain management and progression of your sale through to exchange of contracts.  Whilst it's not the most glamorous part of our job, it is undoubtedly the most technical and what you pay a large portion of the fee for us to manage for you.    The industry average fall through rate is 30%.  It is much higher with agents that don't have well trained qualified estate agents managing that file on a daily basis after a sale has been agreed.

We believe we have a comprehensive marketing strategy that combines the best of the skills our people have, with the more traditional elements our industry has to offer, with the latest innovations in our ever increasing digital world.  

Our Happy Sellers

Excellent service from the team at Lauristons and James Wheatley in particular. Their very proactive sales approach seen the property under offer at our agreed target price within 3 weeks. James did a good job managing the various interested parties through to exchange and in particular in the inevitable survey based re-negotiation. I am very pleased with the price we achieved and in particular with the service I received from James and the team.
