CELEBRATING 25 YEARS OF ESTATE AGENCY EXCELLENCE

Dawsons joined The Relocation Agent Network in marking their 25th anniversary at the National Conference and Exhibition, and celebrated their status as Swansea’s Local Expert. The event was held on 23 November 2018 at London’s Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel.

Celebrating its 25th National Conference and Exhibition, the event culminated in a glittering black-tie Awards Dinner, hosted by well-known comedian and television presenter, Katherine Ryan.

Relocation Agent Network is a national network of selected estate agents across England, Scotland and Wales, who handpicked Dawsons to be the Local Expert in Swansea, based on strict criteria such as quality of service, local knowledge, business innovation and professionalism.

Helping Our Customers

Through its affiliation to Cartus, the premier provider of relocation services, Relocation Agent Network members help Cartus assist relocating families, offering Dawsons customers an additional channel of buyer when selling their property. In addition, members also help their customers through their ‘Referral Network’, which allows Dawsons to help people who are looking to move out of the local area by referring them to a Relocation Agent in the location they are moving to.

Relocation Agent Network Managing Director, Richard Tucker said, “We are delighted to have welcomed each of our Relocation Agent Network members, including Dawsons to this year’s 25th National Conference and Exhibition. As a selected member of the Network, in our opinion, they are the experts for customers buying and selling in Swansea.”

DAWSONS ESTATE AGENTS KILLAY OFFICE

High Street versus Online Estate Agents

We’ve been looking into the reasons why using High Street Estate Agents offers property sellers a lot more to consider when selecting the right agent.

Catchy Window Display

Richard Tucker, Managing Director of Relocation Agent Network, says:

“High street presence means you can see how an agent presents properties for sale in their window. What is it about the display that catches your eye? How involved is the agent in the local community? And of course, you have a place to meet with your agent.DAWSONS ESTATE AGENTS MUMBLES OFFICE

Local Area Information

Local knowledge is a must for someone looking to move into a new area. The agent will be able to share key information about the neighbourhood with potential buyers.

Realistic Outlook

A can-do attitude provides the assurance that your sale is in a safe pair of hands. The agent is realistic and will explain to you the challenges that may occur and the solutions available to overcome them; the key point is that you are in the hands of a professional who is proactive and knows how to help their customers make a successful move.  If you are choosing a pay-upfront option to sell your home, what is the incentive for the agency to get the price right in the first instance and keep you informed of anything?.”

Reviews and Recommendations

Going on, Richard explains:

“Client testimonials tell you about the quality of the service and the impressions left on both buyers and sellers who have used the agent previously. Selling a home is not only a financial transaction, but an exchange between real people.

Friendly Face

Face-to-face support brings us back to the people aspect; seeing a familiar face, someone you can trust when you need advice can really help reduce the stress associated with certain elements of selling and buying a property.

Sales Progression

By taking personal ownership of your sale and purchase it means that the agent is dedicated to finding you the best buyer for your property and the right property for you to move to. The agent is willing to invest their time and resources to be your advocate and to give you the support you need to make a successful move.”

 In conclusion

Having a real person to talk to, a friendly face, a true connection with your agent, rather than dealing with a “person” online (or doing it all yourself) can make the sales process a lot easier to handle and keeps you in the loop.  That way you are more likely to have a smooth and speedy transaction, and there is always someone available to answer your questions or ease a tricky situation.

Back to School with Dawsons Property

Back to School

My goodness gracious, where did that holiday go?

Hopefully, everyone has had an amazing time, whether staying at home in Swansea, visiting some of our amazing beaches and attending all of the events that have been going-on or heading abroad to foreign shores.

Now, however, is the time to get prepared for the schools going back for the Autumn term and, in order to assist, we have made a checklist for you to download and tick off as you complete each of the tasks.

BACK TO SCHOOL CHECKLIST

Just remember that once the kids are back at school, you do not have to worry about how to entertain them every day.

Maybe think about putting your property on the market, and moving somewhere larger, or even closer to their school, to make your life easier come the Christmas holidays!  (Oops sorry to mention the ‘C’ word)!

Good luck with it all, remember we are always here if you need us!
