Estate Agents…they are two a penny in St Albans and Hemel Hempstead. You can’t walk through the town without coming across a plethora of different estate agents, eager to help you sell, rent or buy your home - what can you expect from one of the most popular areas to live in Hertfordshire?
However, we strongly believe that not all Estate Agents are created equally. We’re not just your local high street chain estate agent! You’ve only got to come and visit our offices to see the Aubrey and Finn difference. We know that you have a choice when deciding on an estate agent , so here are a few things that we think distinguish us from the rest!
Working in property isn’t just a job, it’s our passion! We are one of St Alban’s and Hemel’s top independent Estate Agents. That means that we’re not tied to a chain, and when you deal with us, you don’t get through to a call centre, or transferred to different offices, or palmed off with the Saturday employee for a viewing who has no idea idea what they are doing. We’re here, in your town or city, ready to answer your call, help as best we can and put our customers first. We like to get to know our clients and we pride ourselves on being able to offer a personal service. We’re here when you need us and we have a 24/7 out of hour’s service if you need to contact us in an emergency.
We love the local area, and we know a lot of house-hunters do too. Because we all live locally, or grew up here, we know the area - and the market - like the back of our hands. Our passion and commitment have made us St Albans’ go-to independent estate agent for both buyers and sellers and we love to help! We never forget that buying, selling or renting a home is a big deal. So we’ll be there for you every step of the way to guide you through the process and offer support to you.
We know our clients…
We like to think that we know who our clients are, and we know your clients too!
We know that many of you are busy working full time, probably commuting, and you want viewings at a time convenient to you, so we offer evening and weekend viewings to help you find your perfect home – whether it’s your forever home, or your home for right now, or a rental property you are looking to make an extra income from.
We also know what your clients are looking for when it comes to choosing their new property, so we ensure that we market your property in the best way to maximise viewings. We’re sure you’ve seen those estate agents who when preparing property particulars, take a picture of the room as it is, low lighting, stuff everywhere, funny angles of lens… need we say more? We really take time over photographing our properties for sale, and will hunt around for the best light, the best way to photograph the property, and we will also make suggestions of things which should be moved as we know that your clients need to be able to imagine themselves living in the property, so we need the photos to help sell the dream to your clients.
We like to think we’ve got our fingers on the pulse!
You can find us on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media where the cool kids hang out! We like to share what’s happening during our day, and we also like to be responsive, so come and follow us on Social Media and let’s connect.
We also advertise widely to reach the maximum audiences for our customers. Unlike other agents locally, we don’t just rely on one property website. WE list on Zoopla and Rightmove - plus Prime Location, the favourite site of Londoners looking to move out to ensure that we get your property in front of the people who are looking to make their next move.
We’re forward thinking!
Things are constantly changing in our industry and we are an estate agency which likes to move with the times and respond to global changes on a local level.
An example of this is our commitment to our managed Airbnb service, a service which for us is transforming the way our clients rent out their homes and is a service which is completely unique in the local area. No other estate agent is offering this locally.
Did you know that you could earn a bigger rental income from a managed Airbnb property than renting it out month-to-month. We make it so easy for you to earn an extra income from property in this way. It’s ideal if you own your property but perhaps work away or not, or are moving elsewhere and want to retain a property in the local area.
We offer free advice and recommendations!
We’re not just here when you are looking to buy, sell or rent! We love to help people, so whether you just want some advice on the state of the current property market, you are not looking to move just yet but would like a free valuation to give you an idea of what your home is worth to enable you to make plans, or you are considering becoming a landlord and want some advice on navigating the tricky word of buy-to-let’s then we can help!
We are also connected to a whole plethora of independent businesses working in the local area, so if you are looking for a tradesman to repaint your home, survey asbestos or fix your roof, you want new windows and doors, advice on mortgages, legal issues, or even business services, we can recommend a great local business to be able to help you!
Really, we’re just a jolly nice bunch!
It’s not unusual to wander past our office after hours and see us having a bit of a band jamming session, perhaps running a quiz night for a local charity, or just indulging in some wine and cheese with clients who have become friends, and other local business owners. We’re passionate about supporting the local area, whether it’s through helping our clients, supporting local charities or networking with other businesses with a shop-front or without, to help boost the local economy.
Of course, we’re also awlways here for our clients in Hemel and St Albans and surrounding areas, whether you are looking for your first home, you want to upsize, downsize, or rent out your home, or you just fancy a coffee and a natter about the state of the current property market!! For us, working in property isn’t a job, it’s a passion. Our job satisfaction comes from helping people find their perfect home or achieve a successful sale (or both!).
We'd love you to bear us in mind for your next move, so get in touch with us to discuss this or for a free valuation.
