06 Jul High Street News
I’m really excited to let you know about the changes we have been making to our offices in Middle Road, Park Gate. You may have noticed that we recently had new windows fitted and moved our front door, this week we’ve had some sofas delivered and by the end of July we will have use of the first floor offices too. I hope that it will be a very comfortable and welcoming place for you to come and see us.
There are different expectations of estate agents nowadays, with on-line marketing being used more and more, requiring us to adapt and approach our business more creatively to cater for each customer’s needs. I still passionately believe in the importance of a high street presence that allows you to call in and see us for a chat and a coffee.
Whilst so much business can be done on-line I still think it’s important for you to be able to put a name to a face and meet us in an informal and relaxed atmosphere. Much of our business also takes place in your own homes of course.
Since Whiteley has become more accessible from the Botley Road, via the bus lane, the justification for two shops within two miles of each other has diminished. After twelve successful years in Whiteley I have decided not to renew the lease in Solent Business Park which expires in October. Giving excellent customer service has always been my number one priority and relocating all of my team to Park Gate will allow us to work more effectively and efficiently, providing greater benefit to our customers.
It has been a tough decision as Whiteley is where I took my first brave steps setting up my own business, I’m very proud of how far we’ve come and I look forward to carrying on working within and contributing to the local community. I really believe that these changes will allow us to remain competitive in this changing marketplace, providing a seamless service with everything under one roof.
We’ll be making our move over the summer but if you have any questions, please contact me directly on 01489 579009 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and don’t forget to call in and see us soon, the kettle’s on.
