Why choose Quay Living Estate Agents in Poole?
In the old days (ie pre-internet!) large chains of estate agents used to boast that they offered vendors the best chance of selling their property through extensive networks of offices. Back then there was some truth to this, but today over 80% of buyers find their next home on the web, and go direct to the local agent in their chosen area.
This development is a game-changer for buyers. They 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 sales team have over 75 years direct property experience in sales, lettings, development and management.
We also offer 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 maintain the same high standards and 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 the major portals such as Rightmove and On The Market, in addition to its own website, ensuring your property gets the exposure it deserves. In addition we advertise regularly in the 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 our ‘phone lines are open until 10pm every evening.
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 they serve on the boards of Poole Business Improvement District, Poole and Bournemouth Tourism, Poole Quays Forum and sponsor local habitats through 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 Ombudsman Services; Property 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.
