Why start an estate agency?


A number of years ago we sold our first property, a little 2 bed back-to-back terrace in Stacksteads. This was our first experience of selling a property, and we didn't know what to expect. We had three agents come and provide us with a free property valuation. We had one valuation that was about right, but the agent lacked any enthusiasm to sell our home.

We had another that was valued way above market value, a marketing strategy that lets an estate agent get your property on the market, but lacks the pricing strategy to generate many viewings without a price reduction. The last, although we felt was quite expensive at £1500, answered our questions honestly, and seemed the most confident of a sale.

Overall, our experience fell short of our expectations. We were never able to get in touch with the valuer again, when ringing the office we were greeted with annoyance, and felt that we just did not matter.The listing and floorplans were incorrect, and had to be amended on a couple of occasions, and we had to do all the viewings ourselves, despite dropping in a spare key at the local office.

We received a call within the week, for a couple of viewings, and our property was under offer within the month. After paying the £1500, we found ourselves asking, "What did the agent actually do for us?". We felt that although the agent had taken pictures and marketed our property, we had little in the way of customer service, and frankly felt a little robbed.

Working for another estate agent

This experience led Emma, Coppenwall's Managing Director, to start working for a reputable estate agent in Rochdale, with a desire to really help people with their selling experience.

After four years of working there, gaining knowledge and experience in the industry, we decided to start an agency built on a new ethos in our local area, Rossendale.
