Office refurbishments complete?Dynamic high street offices open?Service in person available?

The fresh paint on the walls is dry, the flooring and seating is ready for clients to visit, the eye-catching high street window displays are attracting enquiries. The phone lines are buzzing, the email and social media notifications are pinging. Long live the advanced, “Traditional” High Street Estate Agent!

Our beautifully refurbished offices are already seeing a great uplift in activity with support and appreciation from the local communities we operate within across Docklands, Canary Wharf, East and South East London.

Alex Neil’s presence on and commitment to local high street offices began in 1984 and we’ve embraced and deployed many technological and online advances during that time. However, we firmly believe that Vendors and Landlords benefit enormously from all the important elements provided by a “Traditional” high street estate agent.

We provide clients the ability to deal with real people, working and actively promoting property For Sale and For Rent in real, high-profile offices. We are very different from the many faceless, corporate online entities that masquerade as estate agents currently plying for market share.

Q. Can a high street estate agent help secure vendors and landlords a better price? A wider choice of tenants or buyers?

A. Undoubtedly yes and yes! A high street office is a 24 hour a day, powerful advertising tool. Applicants, vendors and landlords can visit to discuss their property matters, register requirements, organise appointments or make offers in comfort. Selling or letting is all about exposure and the office is another powerful marketing conduit to be utilised.

Q. Online agents must be cheaper then?

A. It rather depends on how you view paying your fees. Many online only agencies charge upfront ‘listing fees’ rather than the more traditional ‘No Sale, No Fee’ approach that we employ. Paying any service fee in advance removes the incentive for the agent to actively work to sell your property, that is generally not considered good strategy.

Furthermore, an online agent's service, ongoing performance and marketing can only be measured after the fee has been paid to them… A listing fee might initially appear cheaper than a No Sale, No Fee percentage but if they never sell your property, you often have zero recourse for the expenditure made.

More importantly perhaps, is the potential that a local agent with a high street office can achieve you a higher price for your property in the first place, this is a game and fee changer! It may cost a few thousand pounds more to pay for the result that we can achieve. However, our experienced local teams have in-depth area, property and development knowledge. Valuable knowledge that when pricing properties accurately could lead to vendor achieving thousands or tens of thousands of pounds more than anticipated, comfortably covering fees and realising more capital.

There is much negativity written and shared about the property market currently and as we were established in 1984 we’ve experienced many high’s and low’s and like to think we are different!

Our stunning high-tech offices deliver a more traditional agency approach coupled with the best online presence, marketing and property matching techniques. Our own website is a veritable hub of activity, we are very active on Social Media and engage marketing on the major property portals also, our 30 year+ track record of sales and lettings speaks volumes.

These office refurbishments, alongside investments in our staffing teams, show our commitment and determination to remain the very best estate agent in the areas that we service.
