After winning multiple awards for our sales services over the years we have decided to withdraw from the selling market for the time being and give some of the other agents in Bridgend a chance to win!

Our passion is for rentals and after winning another Gold Award for our lettings service in Bridgend and a Bronze Award for the whole of Wales in 2022/23, we have decided to concentrate solely on the rental side of the business moving forward.

We can still be helpful though, so we have listed a few pointers below in what to look for in a good selling agent.

Good luck!

  • Honest valuations It's no coincidence that the highest valuation will often have quoted you the highest fee. Once they have tied you into a contract, you will be asked to reduce the price.

  • Qualified and knowledgable team members. Be aware of who is showing buyers around, some 'agents' have no idea about properties or local areas. You will meet agents that just keep talking at you, not to you and they will do the same to buyers.

  • A big social media presence is important. Be sure the agent you choose makes the most out of the free resource of social media.

  • Don’t believe all google reviews. Some people are impossible to please and are unpleasant.

  • Names don't mean much and neither does the length of time you have been trading. Go with the agent you feel is honest, listens to you and will do a good job.

Wishing you the best of luck with the sale of your home.
