About May's The Village Agent Ltd.
Specialising in residential sales and valuations, May’s avoids the "jack of all trades" pitfalls and leaves mortgages, surveys management and insurance to the specialists, concentrating on those areas they know best. With a Chartered Surveyor principal who has 40 years experience in the area, there can’t be many other estate agents with this level of expertise still selling property for a living! And it is the personal attention that the company applies to each and every one of the property instructions that sets May’s apart from the competition.
Why May’s ?
Staffing. From the principal to the Saturday staff, knowledge of the area and an enthusiasm for the job is an essential part of the employment criteria.
Personal Care. Old fashioned priorities such as the customer coming first, and acting in the client’s best interest, are a constituent part of the office practice. Each and every property is seen by the principal - as the saying goes "the buck stops here" !!
Experience. With a Chartered Surveyor principal who has amassed 40 year’s experience in the area, with a further combined 30 years plus of estate agency life between the other staff members, it is difficult to imagine another small team in the area with this level of knowledge between them.
Advertising. Promotion of your property is paramount to May’s. Without the exposure how are the public expected to know it even exists ? Combining the power of the Internet with the familiarity of the local press provides a global coverage with the essential focus in the right areas.
Managing Expectations. This works on both sides of the equation. When selling you need to know with a degree of accuracy, what you will get for your property. There is no "flattering to deceive" and no artificial inflation of prices just to make you feel good. This doesn’t mean that you get a deliberately low figure, just an honest, considered opinion of the market value at that time. In the buying process, you can be assured that you will get an up-front appraisal of the timescale and situation relating to the seller and their property, allowing you to plan your move ahead.
Presentation. With the benefit of modern technology, May’s are able to offer the highest standards of presentation at the appropriate level for the market situation. From high gloss brochures to the standard colour particulars, each set of details receives the individual attention of the principal.
