The top 3 benefits of using an independent estate agent to sell your home

Selling your home might be one of the biggest decisions you’ll make. So, you need to know that your sale is in the hands of the professionals. An independent estate agent, like Follwells, will give you complete peace of mind, provide local expertise and draw on their established reputation, and provide a fully personalised service.

Local expertise and reputation

An independent estate agent has the greatest knowledge of the local area. Of course, they know the basics like the local school catchment areas and transport links. But, as they are deeply rooted in the local area, they also live and breathe the community, know each street like the back of their hand and know the most effective way possible to sell your property for the right price. And it will be an area that it has grown its reputation in. Not only will the independent estate agent properly market your property, but they are more likely to attract potential buyers. We’ve been selling homes in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire for over 30 years and have nurtured a growing, notable reputation. Selling with us means selling with the area’s most proactive estate agent.

Speak to real people

A larger, corporate estate agent will probably use automated services to communicate with you. Whereas a local, independent company will take the time to get to know you and your property, keep you updated throughout the sale with real conversations and give you that valuable time and focus.

means you’ll always be talking to one of the family. Whatever the reasons you’re looking to sell your home, we want to understand your story and get you the best result.

“Absolutely outstanding service. We both sold and bought through Follwells, and the service was impeccable. Highly recommend.”

“Having had bad experiences with larger estate agent chains in the past, I’d decided to only use smaller, family-run independent businesses moving forward. I was so pleased with [Follwells] from start to finish. The team are great, very responsive. I would 100% recommend.”
