Doubtless most of us are tired of the ongoing Brexit saga and of course we can’t ignore the potential implications for the property market.Ultimately however, there will always be people looking, or even needing to make a move and we are preparing for 2019, with a view to making the process of buying and/ or selling through Pettengells as smooth and stress free as possible. It is evident that online/ ‘hybrid’ estate agencies have made very little headway in our area, as clients value the personal touch which we can offer from our welcoming high street offices. A typical retiring couple moving down to the south coast invariably want to come in for a chat and a cuppa’, and for us to tell them more about the area i.e. where are the bus routes, which are the quieter roads, where can I walk my dog etc.? Selling and buying is a ‘people business’ where face to face contact and personal attention is paramount and for our firm in particular, we strive to offer clear and regular communication from the very first contact with a buyer or seller, right through to the day that we hand over the keys on moving day. So, whatever comes of Brexit, for Pettengells it is ‘business as usual’, which means going the extra mile to match as many buyers and sellers as we can!
