Accelerating Agent Success case study – Wards of Dover, Gregory Middlebrook
We’ve seen a real benefit for both buyers and sellers, in terms of being the most secure way of buying and selling property
Wards of Dover is an independent Estate Agency located in the South East England, specialising in Sales and Lettings, who have seen great success since using iamproperty’s auction service iamsold.
Branch Manager, Gregory Middlebrook, said: “The reason that I love working with iamproperty is because it’s become a really efficient way for us to manage business. We’ve seen a real benefit for both buyers and sellers, in terms of being the most secure way of buying and selling property.”
“iamproperty saves us a significant amount of time within the branch as we deal with a huge volume of sales. The level of communication is excellent, our auction specialists Dean and Kathleen have been absolutely great and have become real members of our Ward’s family. Not only do we speak with them on a daily basis, but on average our sales are exchanging within 56 days of draft contracts, which to us is absolutely fantastic.”
The big wins…
“Working with iamproperty, has really helped increase our revenue stream in the branch. Obviously one of the main benefits is the abortive costs as it is always a real concern when sales fall through, but through working with iamproperty we know that as a branch we are still going to be securing that income. “
“Looking at how quickly we can turn these properties around from sale to exchange has been absolutely phenomenal for us and is an incredibly efficient way for us to manage our business while also seeing an excellent financial return.”

At the moment, in an ever-changing market, it’s the best way to sell a home.”
