Although technology has changed the world, we still believe estate agency is a business deeply revolving around people and their unique circumstances. With no two homes being the same, homes are not a commodity nor will they ever be, so there is no one solution to fit all.
As experienced, reputable estate agents we use all the modern tools available to successfully bring properties to the market, but actually rely on our deep understanding of the local market, our carefully built and vetted data base and our straightforward fees to make sure we provide a high quality service and deliver property sales in the best possible terms for each and every client, as detailed below.
Having a knowledge of all the corners of your neighborhood, all the recent enquiries from hopeful buyers as well as historic sales can make a huge difference in the strategy and level of pricing we would advise you to
It simply comes down to this knowledge rather than a generic assessment of market conditions, it’s walking the streets every day, chatting with locals, keeping our ears on the ground that will in the end make a difference in the price you will achieve for your home.
When working with an online agent you will rely exclusively on listing on a major property portal, but in our experience that is not enough. Having a list of carefully vetted buyers at our fingertips can mean creating interest even before your home is listed. Using all the marketing tools in our experience helps create that competitive environment that makes homes sell quickly and for the right price.
Our contact data base gives us insights of the levels of interest in your area and has again an impact on our marketing strategy.
At Nicol Estate Agents, you will know all your fees from day one. All the marketing is inclusive in our packs – from high quality photography, professional brochure, accompanied viewings and negotiating on your behalf. There are no nasty surprise fees and no effort that is too small in making sure your homes sells well.
Many homeowners might be tempted by the flat rates online agents offer, but you must remember our aim is to sell your home for the best possible price, while online estate agents who work on a fixed fee are only interested in listing your home online. That difference in motivation will have a big impact on the price your home achieves – which makes our hard worked commission well worth it in the eyes of the many happy sellers we’ve helped along the years.
The Nicol Estate Agency team has a combined experience of 90 years – all spent in the local area, serving home buyers and sellers. We will do our best to achieve the best possible sale and will be by your sides through all the milestones of a home sale.
We believe in the traditional, high street estate agency model and to prove just that we are extending, adding a Clarkston branch. We believe estate agency is a people business and although we use all the tools modern technology offers, nothing will replace a face to face meeting and a personal relationship with our sellers and buyers.
