Dawsons expand their area from Morriston to Neath
2020 was a tricky year for everyone with the onslaught of the COVID pandemic and businesses being forced to close or completely amend their working policies to reduce physical contact. The property industry was no exception; even though estate and letting agents are now are able to transact and keep the property market moving, we are encouraged by the Government to use virtual viewings and video tours wherever possible, to limit physical property viewings to those able to proceed immediately, and to keep office traffic to appointments only.
The up-side of adapting all of our systems and processes to really incorporate online property transactions, is that we have been able to expand the area we cover from some of our branches. We now have more time to spend on physical appointments, property valuations and viewings, as we are no longer wasting time on those who are ‘just browsing’ or ‘who are unable to proceed’ and this has really increased our productivity and customer service levels.
From our Morriston office, we have now expanded out to Neath and Port Talbot. We love these areas because they have so much to offer for families and that is our main customer base.
All about Neath and surrounding areas
With so many good local primary and senior schools in the local area, it is clearly a popular place for families with children of school age. Of course, at the moment of writing, the schools are closed, but it is still important for families moving into or within the local area to be within the school catchment for some of these fabulous schools:
As well as the great pull for families, both Neath & Port Talbot offer some great tourist attractions, making the area affluent and popular for the tourist industry. With the pandemic causing a huge reduction in those able to fly overseas for holidays, the coast of South Wales is a popular choice for people wanting to vacation in the UK.
