Why choose Quay Living Estate Agents in Poole?
Large chains of estate agents used to boast that they offered vendors the best chance of selling their property through an extensive networks of offices, but today over 85% of buyers find their next home on the web and go direct to the local agent in their chosen area. This means that buyers can now deal directly with highly experienced senior personnel in smaller local practices, rather than inexperienced junior staff who are often shuffled from branch to branch. Between them, our two partners and their team have over 75 years direct property experience in sales, lettings, development and management.
Quay offers a dedicated service that reflects our personal commitment. We treat every home as if it were our own. That’s not to say we pop round at every opportunity, flick on the TV and help ourselves to the ginger nuts – instead we dedicate the same amount of care and attention that we would if it were our own home.
Quay Living markets properties for sale and letting on all the major portals – Rightmove, Zoopla, Primelocation and On The Market, in addition to its own website, ensuring your property gets the exposure it deserves. We also advertise in local press and specialist property publications.
Most towns have two types of buyers – owner occupiers and buy-to-let investors. Poole’s location, its accessibility, beaches and natural beauty make it a popular location for second home buyers from outside the region. Our sister company, Quay Holidays offers 300 bed spaces every night to tourists, business travellers and relatives of local residents. No estate agent in Poole is better placed to tap into the demand for second homes – many of our regular guests have gone on to buy locally, and we offer a comprehensive management service to accommodate them.
Our high-profile modern offices are open 7 days a week and offer a great showroom to the many local folk and tourists who pass by on their way to Poole’s historic Quay. Buyers and sellers often lead busy lives and don’t always have time to ring during the working day. We appreciate this, which is why we have an out-of-hours messaging service which ensures we never miss a call.
Local knowledge is Quay. We work in Poole Old Town, we live in Poole Old Town and we are an active part of this wonderful, vibrant community. Aside from the busy lives our partners lead in developing Quay’s business, their passion for everything Poole means that one serves as a trustee of local Neighbourhood Forum, Poole Quays Forum and Quay sponsors local habitats through Birds of Poole Harbour and Dorset Wildlife Trust.
To emphasise our commitment to the highest standards of industry practice Quay Living is Regulated by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), and adheres to a strict professional code. In addition, we are members of both the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA) and the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA). Our firm is registered with the Property Redress Scheme which offers clients the comfort of knowing that in the unlikely event of a dispute which cannot be satisfactorily resolved between the parties, our firm is bound to adhere to the decision of the independent ombudsman.
