What makes Sam Chivers Estate Agency different is the way we do things…..

Firstly we have the largest sales team of any residential estate agent we compete with, we are a well organised unit with each member off staff having a clear and precise role. Initially our senior valuer will visit you to provide a free market appraisal followed up in writing. If you decide to instruct us Sam Chivers will visit you in order to take photos and video tour and will then create a professional sales brochure, also at this point Sam will ensure we provide attention to detail regarding your needs as our client and important information regarding your property. This will ensure that no unexpected issues arise when selling your home.

Once your property is launched onto the open market you will be placed in the very capable hands of Tracey Chivers (our co-director) and her sales team which comprises of; Romany Hemmings (law graduate and a founder member of the team), Sarah Fear (an agent of seventeen years), Messina Taylor (an agent of six years), Chris Latchem (an agent of twenty two years), Cherish Chivers (an agent of three years and founder member of the team). Sydney Denning (trainee sales negotiator) and Matt Brooks (agent of sixteen years) .

The sole purpose of our sales team is to nurture and work closely with our registered buyers with the main aim of matching the right person to the right property. Whilst this is an extremely busy role, they are also always available and happy to speak to each of our sellers to provide support, guidance and advice during the marketing process. They will accompany every viewing and provide feedback after each appointment, we consider this to be one of the most important aspects of the viewing process.

Before putting forward any offers on your property, we will extensively check out the chain involved and confirm that your buyer has all the necessary finances in place to be able to proceed with the purchase. We take an open and honest approach to negotiations, providing as much information as possible in order for an educated decision to made by our sellers.

Once your property is sold our sales progression team comprising Jordan Bryant “sales progression manager” (an agent of seven years) and Zac Gumbleton our “sales progressor” (a founder member of the team) will manage every aspect of the transaction. We are very aware that once you have agreed a sale, the process can be stressful, which is why we have two full time members of staff solely dedicated to this very important role. As a purchaser or seller we never let go of your hand until the day the transaction completes and keys are handed over.

Our industry is intensively regulated and compliance is essential, therefore we have our own “compliance officer” Mary Anstice who regularly checks all of our processes and practice. We ensure that our Estate Agency business is run professionally and efficiently, without compromise.
