We will negotiate the best possible deal

For over 25 years we have helped individual or private clients save time and money - and reduce stress levels - by finding the property they want to buy or rent and negotiating a realistic price. 

Satisfying yours and the sellers’ (vendors) / landlords’ expectations involves many factors, including money and emotions. By using an experienced property search and negotiation consultant or rent negotiator (broker) at the financial negotiation stage you will have access to a professional whose understanding of your brief and budget will help you achieve the best possible deal.

Save money and reduce stress using a professional property negotiator

As experienced property search and relocation agents and skilled property negotiators, we have saved our clients significant amounts of money over the years, whether they have been buying a property, are corporate clients or want our help with rent negotiation (in the private sector and for rents which are over £1,000 per month.)

Having many years of experience and knowing the current prices in the property market are the keys to successful property negotiations, whether you are purchasing a property or renting your home.

Have confidence that you are paying the right and fair price by letting a professional property negotiator work on your behalf. People naturally become emotionally involved when selling or purchasing a home and a lifestyle. By using a professional and experienced property negotiator your transaction will be handled as a business deal so the vendor and their agency know you mean business, ensuring that you purchase your new home for the best possible price, presuming the vendors are being realistic, which is not always the case.
