Just Twelve Days

As the leading independent estate agent in Beaconsfield we pride ourselves on providing impeccable service to all of our clients. One thing that estate agents are not necessarily well-known for is our agility. Being able to react to our clients’ specific requirements with successful results is the difference between being a leader on the High Street and not.

Story Time

We want to tell you a story about our clients, the Bailey family (clients name has been changed to protect their privacy).


The Baileys saw a property in nearby town and quickly fell in love. However, they still had their three bedroom semi-detached house to sell and hadn’t even gone to market with it.


The house they wanted to buy was very popular and the agent had received multiple offers from potential buyers in similar positions – everyone had houses to sell, some further down the path than others.


The Baileys decided that they would instruct Ashington Page exclusively to put their house on the market in the hope that by some miracle they could sell their home AND get an offer in on their dream home before it went to another buyer.


Well, it would be remiss for us to say that we performed a miracle, BUT we certainly pulled out all the stops for the Bailey family. Their beautifully presented house was within walking distance to schools, shops and restaurants and only a seven minute walk to the mainline station – certainly a desirable property!

We went to market with the property as quickly as possible having photographed it and got everything in order. The first viewing was scheduled in for the 28th April and the Baileys accepted an offer on the 8th May and what’s more, they achieved this offer of just 2.7% below the asking price in just twelve days.

We believe that finding the right buyer for the property is more important than finding any buyer. In this instance our marketing activity found a chain-free buyer who was keen to move quickly which suited the situation perfectly. The Baileys were able to make an offer on the desired property, and in fact came away as the successful bidders.  They are now looking forward to moving into their new home for the Summer.
