QR codes introduced

This week we introduced Quick Response codes (QR codes) to each property we market. These codes can be scanned using a mobile phone or tablet application which will then take a prospective buyer to a particular property within seconds without having to search and find it on a website.

Since the launch of our mobile website earlier this year, we have received feedback to suggest that more and more buyers are searching for properties from their mobile devices. People want information instantly at their fingertips, rather than waiting to sit down at a PC or laptop later.

You will see QR codes appearing on our window displays, Sales Particulars and other marketing material over the coming weeks.

As far as we know we are leading the way by becoming the first Estate Agent in the area to introduce these codes to our marketing and as time rolls on we feel more and more people will become familiar with their ease of use.

Connecting You Nationally

There are Home Sale Network members in major towns, cities and rural areas across England, Scotland and Wales. With our National Connections, Network members work together to help people buy and sell homes, wherever they may be. So if you’re selling, Home Sale Network can offer you the potential of additional out of town buyers viewing your property and if you’re buying, we can help you find your new home across England, Scotland and Wales.

Richard James Estate Agents is a member of Home Sale Network, a division of Cartus, the premier provider of global relocation services. Cartus assists more than 140,000 customers worldwide every year and in the UK, it uses Home Sale Network members to help buy and sell homes for these customers.

Focusing on Home Sale Network’s national connections, our Connecting You Nationally marketing campaign demonstrates the scope of Network offices currently based across England, Scotland and Wales. Each office represents one of Home Sale Network’s handpicked, Local Experts who help out of town buyers and sellers, providing an additional service to our local customers at no extra cost to them.

If we have a customer who is moving to an area that we do not cover, we can not only help them sell their current property but we can refer them to our fellow Network member in the town or city that they are moving to, who can then assist them in their home search. Equally, if someone from out of town is moving to then the Network member who is helping to sell their property, will refer the customer to us.

This means that as a specially selected Home Sale Network member, we’re able to offer an all round service to both buyers and sellers, local or not, connecting YOU nationally, wherever you may be.
