Iconic Images for Dawsons Company Car Fleet

Something Old, Something New for Dawsons Fleet of Cars

In recent years Dawsons Estate Agency has used its fleet of company cars as innovative canvasses to catch the eye of people as they pass by. This has resulted in the creation of an array of attractive designs which reflect the communities surrounding each of its local offices and these can be seen driving around Swansea, Llanelli, Morriston, Gorseinon, Mumbles, Sketty & Killay.

The latest of these ‘mobile canvasses’ has appeared on the newest sales car to join the fleet at the firm’s Sketty branch. This time however, instead of eye-catching landscapes something a little different has been designed.  This new vehicle is wrapped with historic images of Sketty.

Dawsons contacted former journalist and now publisher, David Roberts, who for an amazing 21 years has been compiling pictorial nostalgia books which reflect the City and include photos of many locations where Dawsons sell and rent property, and have offered a well-established service for many decades.

Bryngold Books Swansea

David, whose latest publication, “Swansea – The time of our Lives”, by Bryngold Books, hits the shelves shortly, quickly responded to the request for Sketty-linked photographs to adorn the new VW Up city car.

David (pictured with staff member Christine Adams from Sketty office, who will be seen driving around the area) said “Having spent many years contributing articles to the Swansea Evening Post’s Property Publication I  knew at first hand how professional Dawsons approach to the property market is. As a result I was delighted to assist.”,

David and Bryngold Books provided Dawsons with a number of iconic images of Sketty Cross from many years ago. Two of these were chosen and enlarged and printed in vinyl to wrap the new car. Most noticeable in one of the photographs, making the area instantly recognisable, is that of The Bush Public House, which will, no doubt, jog many a memory.

Chris Hope, our Dawsons senior partner said: “We would like our fleet to be unique, and take great pride in the fact that this new car is designed to be meaningful within its local community.”

DESIGN OUR NEXT CAR:

Our next company car design will be chosen from competition entries from all children aged 11 or under.  If you are a budding artist and wish to showcase your talents and see them turned into real moving pieces of art, find the details of our competition HERE.

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.
