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.

Simon celebrating after becoming accredited Relocation Agent Specialist

Simon McLaren, from Dawsons branch in Gorseinon, is celebrating after becoming an accredited Relocation Agent Specialist.

The accreditation was awarded by Relocation Agent Network and is achieved by completing a comprehensive online training programme, The Importance of Service.

A national network of independent estate agents (of which Dawsons is a member), Relocation Agent Network introduced the training programme to ensure each of their members provides the very highest customer service to those relocating around the UK.

Chris Hope, Dawsons’ Senior Partner, said: “We take staff development very seriously and Simon’s Relocation Agent Network accreditation is a great example of what can be achieved when staff are supported properly to improve their skill set.

“Of course, having a Relocation Agent Specialist in the team is also great for our relocating customers.”

To be successfully accredited, participants must complete three phases of learning, which begins with four training sessions on the importance of customer service.

This is followed by three online seminars covering the Relocation Agent Network Referral Process and how best to help customers who are relocating around the UK. Finally, participants must convert their theoretical learning into a practical skill set by delivering assistance to three relocating customers.

By working with fellow members across England, Scotland and Wales, Relocation Agent Network members provide an exclusive relocation referral service to customers. For those relocating to Gorseinon, Dawsons guides their customers through the daunting task of moving to an unfamiliar location.

This includes local area information on schools and amenities, popular neighbourhoods and (of course) finding the right property for them. The introduction of a Relocation Agent Specialist to the Dawsons team, ensures that this process is made even smoother.

Relocation Agent Network’s Managing Director, Richard Tucker said: “Selected by us as the best independent estate agent to represent the Network in Gorseinon, Dawsons have proved themselves as the area’s Local Expert.

“So, with the addition of an in-house Relocation Agent Specialist, they have gone one step further to provide relocating buyers and sellers with the very best customer service.”

Dawsons supporting national food collection campaign

Dawsons Property is supporting a week-long campaign to collect items for Swansea Foodbank next month.

The special collection, which is part of Relocation Agent Network’s national fundraising event called #OneThousandItemsofFood, will take place between June 14 and 21 in conjunction with the Trussell Trust.

During the week there will be collection points in all of Dawsons’ branches across Swansea & Llanelli with special bins to be provided by their Dawsons’ reward card partner Exall & Jones.

The foodbank has become part of the social landscape of society with one in five people living below the poverty line in the UK.

“We are very grateful to Dawsons to their commitment to this food collection campaign,” said Kristina Williams, Assistant Manager at Swansea Foodbank.

“We tend to have a lot of contributions around Christmas time and harvest festival, but contributions tend to tail off a bit during the spring and summer so Dawsons’ commitment is both timely and welcome.”

Swansea Foodbank, which provides emergency food and support to local people in crisis, is open in several locations around the city on different days and times.

Swansea Foodbank is part of the Trussell Trust’s national foodbank network and is supported by churches across the city to help people in times of crisis.

Dawsons is asking customers and staff to donate two items each of non-perishable food such as tins and packet food.

Chris Hope, Senior Partner at Dawsons, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be part of this campaign as part of the Relocation Agent Network which is running #OneThousandItemsofFood throughout the UK.

Unfortunately, we live in times when foodbanks have become a necessity for a part of our society, so we are determined to make this campaign as successful as possible, therefore all our branches will be collecting items between June 14 and 21.”

To find your local foodbank visit www.trusselltrust.org. Find out what supplies they are currently in need of and what items they have enough of.  Foodbanks also accept essential non-food items such as toiletries and hygiene products. They also accept clothes and toys.
