09 May Chain reaction: take the stress out of buying and selling
I was recently asked what was the biggest property chain I’ve found myself working in?
Well, a couple of years ago our office had a chain with 13 properties involved.
That’s 12 buyers (not counting couples), 12 surveyors, 13 solicitors, 7 mortgage companies, 1 client from abroad and countless chances for the deals to fall flat.
We got that chain over the line pretty smoothly with our vendor even saying they felt it wouldn’t have gone through without us.
How did we do it? Well, a good estate agent will have all the names and contact details of all the solicitors involved in the chain and knows the details of every link in the chain. We also have a secret weapon, Donetta, she’s our dedicated Sales Manager whose job it is to chase our sales through to completion.
Then it’s all about keeping on top of things, regularly chasing solicitors or surveyors, speaking with mortgage companies and liaising with clients.
At Robinson Reade we have panels of surveyors, solicitors and removal companies we recommend. Not because we necessarily get anything out of it but we know without a doubt that they are all honest, efficient, pro active and professional.
We do everything we can to make a chain run as stress free as possible. It’s usually a lot of hard work but that’s just one of the reasons why we’re regarded so highly by clients we’ve worked for and with.
