1. Better local knowledge
Independent agencies such as Lillicrap Chilcott are run by the people who started them in the first place - people with extensive knowledge of Cornwall’s property market and the area itself. With centrally located offices in Truro that are open six days a week, we make sure we are here ready to help when buyers need us most. As Cornwall residents with a vested interest in the community we are happy to provide honest and knowledgeable answers to our clients to ensure both buyer and seller satisfaction.
2. More flexibility
Unlike corporate agencies that tend to have very regimented processes and procedures, smaller independent agencies are able to adapt to their clients’ needs and offer a more personalised, tailored service. Rather than automated emails and follow-ups, agents at Lillicrap Chilcott take a personal approach, developing a friendly working relationship with every client so they feel like a valued individual rather than a number.
3. Relevant connections
Having built up numerous professional connections in the area, an independent estate agent has great relationships with all the local property related services. Having an agent who can personally refer you to the best local solicitors and property experts takes a lot of the stress out of the selling process.
4. More motivation
Many agencies and online estate agents try to build up as wide a portfolio as possible with little motivation to actually sell the properties they are listing. As an independent agent, Lillicrap Chilcott doesn’t get paid unless we sell your home. This gives us more reason to invest time and energy into making sure you receive detailed feedback from viewings, receive regular updates on any offers and negotiations, and provide helpful advice on how to get the price you want in the timeframe you need.
5. An excellent reputation
As a small independent agency, we rely on satisfied local customers to spread the word about our services. We care about how our clients perceive us and are willing to go the extra mile to ensure that we maintain our reputation as the Cornwall estate agent. Whether you own a tiny townhouse or a palatial waterfront mansion, we’ll provide the excellent personalised service that helps us sell more than £1.5 million worth of property every single week.
With many years’ experience in residential agency across Cornwall, the team at Lillicrap Chilcott can give you the expert advice you need to ensure a stress-free buying or selling process. Contact us today for more information.
