Rochdale's Edward Alexander Estate Agency is an agency with a difference!
Trying to reduce the stress for everyone involved in a transaction, whether the client, the estate agent or the solicitor was how we approached this venture. The stress created often develops from the uncertainty of a transaction and the lack of communication, and whilst we can never remove all stress, a reduction of even some must be a big benefit to all the parties?
It was with this in mind that we set about thinking what was needed, it was all quite simple… everyone wanted a simple and quick process, easier communication and clarity throughout.
The service we developed removes the idea that the client has to shop around for Estate Agents for the cheapest commission or the best sale package; and then have to deal with the recommended Solicitors who may be paying the Estate Agent a referral fee for the work, or perhaps the client will have to shop around for a legal quote, comparing Prices, what is included, the Service offered and perhaps even Locality to where they live.
Why can’t all services be provided from one place? That would make things so much easier.
Well it can and it will be here at Edward Alexander.
So having addressed convenience what about cost?
Moving is very expensive, and very confusing; when trying to add up all the costs, the Estate Agents percentage charges, “Special Offer – 1.25% for this month only!”, then the Solicitors Fees, disbursements that weren’t included in the “Special Offer” you selected at the time; and then adding on 20% for VAT, then re-calculating all those figures when the Purchasers Survey comes back and they want to reduce the price!
For that reason we decided on an “All Inclusive Figure”. No adding up, no working out percentages on the sale price… what we tell you at the outset is what it will remain. Simple!
If you are quoted £999.00 then it will be £999.00 – No hidden fees or agendas, the sum you are quoted will include the Estate Agents Fee, photos, EPC and ANY VAT!
The Price quoted covers everything mentioned above, no hidden costs and no nasty surprises!
We work closely with our partner Company, A2 Solicitors LLP. The Partners, Paul Ackroyd and Chris Bracey are also Directors with the Agency and have lived and/or worked in Rochdale for in excess of 10 years. They want to bring this idea to the local market… providing a great local, ethical and convenient service at a very competitive and straight forward price with only one office to visit throughout!
