Nicola Astley from Robert Watts Estate Agents talks about how iamproperty's auction and movebutler platform helps to accelerate their success.
Accelerating Agent Success case study – Wards of Dover, Oliver Vincent
It’s a much quicker transaction process, not just the time it takes to go to market, but once then sale’s been agreed, the time it takes to complete and get paid.
Oliver Vincent, Office Manager, Wards of Dover
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.
Office Manager, Oliver Vincent, said: “I love working with iamproperty, mainly due to timescales. It’s a much quicker transaction process, not just the time it takes to go to market, but once the sale’s been agreed, the time it takes to complete and get paid.”
“iamproperty really feels like an extension of our team, we are constantly in communication about the cases that we have on, so it’s a real synergy that we have.”
“iamproperty has sped up our completions since we began working with them. They work on a timescale of 56 days and every single property that we’ve sold through them has completed and exchanged within that time period. This makes a real difference to us because at the moment, it’s around about 12 to 14 weeks with Private Treaty, whereas iamsold is so much quicker.”
The big wins…
“A great example of when iamproperty proved to be extremely useful was when we were looking to sell a bungalow that had been on the market with us for over eight months and had fallen through three times as a result of chains etc.”
“We then listed the bungalow with iamproperty for 10,000 pounds less than I had previously accepted as an offer and it resulted in a sale of 40,000 pounds above a guide price. At that point, I knew iamproperty was the one for us.”
Over to you
“Working with iamproperty has really helped me succeed because we’re able to offer the same service that we offer normally, but for a much-reduced price and we are still getting fantastic results which is the key thing.”
“The customers are happy and in turn I’m happy. I think people should use iamproperty because they do what they say they’re going to do. They explained to us that we were going to exchange contracts within 56 days of sale being agreed and that is exactly what happens, and that makes a real difference in today’s market.”
