Digital and print marketing
Your property details will be listed on our website, all social media channels, in our window and a glossy set of details will be printed for prospective buyers.
After initially going with another agent at what transpired to be an unrealistic valuation, with no offers, I returned to David. He was honest with me about a more realistic valuation yet managed to instil me with confidence at the same time. My complete faith in him was realised when I had my first offer in 48 hours Amanda C, seller, 2020
The thing that people most often complain about in their estate agent is poor communication.
That’s why keeping in touch is one of the things we focus on most.
For example, after a viewing, as well as giving feedback immediately afterwards, we phone the prospective buyer for their considered view on how your home would fit their needs.
We’ll also try to get hold of you at least once a week, to discuss progress. Even if there’s not much news, we’ll be in touch just to show we’re still thinking about you.
Communication was excellent. They were honest, pragmatic and just really knew their stuff. I trusted them and for me that is a key thing to be able to say!”Kate G, seller, 2020

STRAIGHTFORWARD PROPERTY MARKETING
On the market in 48 hours
When you decide to sell, we’ll aim to get your property on the market within 48 hours of you instructing us.
Pictures speak a thousand words
A good set of photos is absolutely crucial when marketing a home.
Important though the internet is these days, a good set of printed details is not to be overlooked. We’ve recently modernised ours, to make your home look stunning.
You’ll find the description short on waffle but big on facts – right down to details like where there’s a late-night pint of milk!
How do you rate the marketing and photography of your property?*
David’s photos were fantastic. We wish we knew a DW Smith up in the North East!””Annie T, seller, 2020
How we find buyers
People still like to window shop, so we’ll advertise your home in our prominent High Street window.
Once you instruct us, we’ll ring and email everyone on our books who’s looking for a property like yours.
We’ll advertise your property on the UK’s biggest marketplace for property, rightmove.co.uk
We’ll even compile your home’s photos into a little video with a voiceover – and promote it via our Facebook page.
When marketing a home, we find the best results come from a blend of traditional with digital methods.”Richard Collett, Sales Manager, DW Smith
We’ll know your property
Ever had the infuriation at a viewing only to find the agent knows nothing about the property?!
That’s why we make sure we properly familiarise ourselves with every detail about your home before we start showing it.
Why don’t all agents do this?
Our experience in selling homes here since 1999 means we’ll have handled every possible bump in the road to a successful sale, so can spot and head-off problems before they arise.
And it means we know every nook and cut-through – even where to get the best flat white – so we’re able to help buyers with every question and excite them about the area.

Kept us much better informed than our solicitor.”Jo M, seller, 2020
We don’t stop with the offer
Unlike some agents, we don’t lose interest once an offer is received...
1. OFFER CHECKING
We check the buyer’s ability to follow-through their offer, and suggest you reject it if we feel a buyer may not be solid.
2. SALES PROGRESSION
You’ll have a dedicated, named Sales Progressor who will chase solicitors and agents up and down your chain until completion day.
3. ONWARD PURCHASE
We’ll even help you find and assess your next property if that’s helpful – even if it’s not on our books.

We believe you should stay with an agent because you want to, not because of their lawyers’ smallprint.
A little-known – and borderline unscrupulous – agency practice is the extended contract period, giving an agent exclusive rights to sell your property, sometimes for as long as six months! And if you’re unhappy with their service, you can’t switch agents until that time is up.
We believe you should stay with an agent because you want to, not because of their lawyers’ smallprint, so we don’t ask for any time commitment at all!
