Almost 100% of property sellers list estate agents fees as the most important factor when deciding what estate agent to use. At Green and Parry Estate Agents you are welcome to ask us about our fees and any questions you have at any time. We work on a no-sale, no-fee basis, so if your property doesn’t sell then you won’t need to pay us a penny.
2. Could your estate agents represent you?
From the way phones are answered, to meetings and websites, it is important that you feel your estate agents could represent you. Your estate agent will be the one meeting with potential buyers, and sourcing the best sales price for you. You need to be able to trust them, talk to them and feel represented by them.
At Green and Parry Estate Agents we pride ourselves on not implementing any pushy sales tactics and always attend meetings, viewings and appointments promptly.
Whilst representing you personally, your estate agent will also be representing your property as a product for sale. How it is marketed, photographed and discussed are fantastic indicators of which estate agent is best suited to selling your property. We proudly take a professional and pro-active approach to our marketing and property sales, and so it important to choose an estate agent who will put in the effort required to properly market your property.

3. Local area knowledge
It is really important that your estate agent knows your local area. It informs the sales negotiations and viewings.
At Green and Parry Estate Agents we are predominantly based in Byfleet and have experience selling in and around this beautiful local area.

4. Can you get your preferred sale price?
Now it is important to say that you must be realistic when deciding on what price you are willing to accept when selling your property. We would all like millions of pounds for our family home, but when we remove emotion from the price, and take into consideration the current property market, interest in the type of property you are selling, relevant sales history in your local area and your property’s condition, there will be a realistic valuation that should be considered.
How we value your home is important and demonstrates our professionalism and expertise. It is also important for us to have a good understanding of your circumstances and needs; such as when you would like to sell your property by, or why you are selling. The more we know, the better positioned we are to get you the price you want for your property. Help us to help you by being honest about your circumstances. Our team at Green and Parry Estate Agents work tirelessly to meet your particular requirements and tailor our services to each client individually.
