Still going strong after 22 years!!

Richard James this week completed 22 years in business; from humble beginnings the business as grown to become one of the most recognized businesses in the local area. Directors Richard Fowler and James Rota originally formed the company in 1991 after working for other estate agents in the area and took the view they could do things differently and better on their own.

Two of the key ingredients to the success of the business over the years have been quality marketing and good customer communication. We have always believed that we market both the company and individual properties better than our competitors. Good quality photographs and strong presentation attracts viewing and in turn buyers. Many agents fall short in this respect along with poor communication. We always keep in close contact with our vendors, giving feedback after each viewing. If we say we will call someone, we actually make that call. Our ethics have not changed over the years and we intend to continue to offer future customers the same high level of service and honesty.

Richard James has been recognised as one of the region’s leading estate agents, which has been enforced by winning the Relocation Agent Network’s Best Agent Regional Award in both 2011 and 2012. The network is an invitation only network of some of the best selected estate agents across the country, who then form the estate agency arm of Cartus Relocation, the premier provider of global relocation services.

After 22 years we are still going strong and look to the future with great ambition and optimism.

Good News for Buyers and Sellers!

This year, reports in the news have begun to indicate signs of a recovery in the UK housing market. And our membership organisation, Relocation Agent Network has added to this good news with the publication of their September Property Survey.

When asking their members whether they think that current market levels will improve in the last quarter of 2013, 79% of respondents said that it would. So is this positive prediction one for buyers or sellers? Well according to over half (52%) of Relocation Agent Network member respondents, the market will see an increase in both buyers and sellers between now and the end of the year.

Indeed, across England, Scotland and Wales, the majority of estate agent respondents stated that they think the number of prospective buyers and sellers will increase by up to 10% in the next quarter.1

Thinking of Moving? So whether it’s all systems go or you’re still umming and aahing about moving home, give us a call to talk through your options. We’re Relocation Agent Network’s selected member for East Northants. As an invitation-only membership organisation, the Network only selects estate agents that they believe provide customers with the very best service and knowledge of the local market.
