Above all else we are
a people business
Clients are often under the false illusion that a sale or rental is done when a buyer or tenant is found. Often the very opposite is true! A good agent knows that their work is only just beginning! The hardest part of any transaction is often ensuring that the progress is smooth between the time of offer and exchange of contracts or finalising the tenancy agreement. This is where our extensive experience pays huge dividends. Knowing the right questions to ask buyers about their chain, their mortgage, their deposits - checking all the facts first before engaging lawyers is imperative to the success of any sale. Properly checking the tenants references and having a good 'feel' for a good purchase or tenant, only comes with expertise and practice which we have plenty of. At Godfrey & Barr part of our ethos is ensuring that our clients can rely on our knowledge and experience. In that regard the Partners are 'hands on' with all their deals, more often than not closing each and every sale and monitoring each through to conclusion. Having an open and honest and friendly relationship with each of their clients and knowing when to 'call' a bad deal and move on! This is a major part of what sets us apart from the big chains and property shops and it's part of how we justify our fees. Our success over the years speaks volumes, as do many of our client reviews. Not all estate agents are the same, and it's our very 'differentness' that sets us apart from the crowd.
