Why should I use Comyn & James to market my property?

For most of us the selling of our own property is a significant responsibility and one of the largest financial transactions we will ever undertake. It therefore makes sense to use a professional service to handle the marketing of the property from start to finish. The aim is to obtain the best possible price with the minimum of stress.

 But how does one choose the right estate agent? At Comyn and James our considerable experience and understanding of the pressures involved in selling a property are the bedrock of our business. We are wholly dedicated to providing a comprehensive and personal service where the client’s interests always come first.  It is all about...
 
People
No matter how good an estate agency declares itself to be – it is the quality of its staff that makes the difference. They are usually the first and last point of contact in selling property and the seller's personal representative. At Comyn and James all our marketing and sales is handled by the Directors themselves thereby assuring you of a professional and fully committed approach. Careful handling and considered advice requires...
 
Experience
With over 50 years combined experience we have the vital in-depth knowledge – not just of the local property market and surrounding regions but in London and beyond. We have worked through many recessions and periods of expansion – we understand what it takes to succeed. But what about...
 
Reputation
The Directors have hard earned reputations built over many years – founded on trust and integrity.

Respect for the client's requirements is paramount. Michael Comyn has worked in estate agency in West Sussex since 2002. Prior to this he was a Director of John D Wood & Co (residential sales) in London for many years (earning a nomination by a national broadsheet newspaper paper as "the best, most professional estate agent in Wandsworth"). He is a Fellow of the National Association of Estate Agents and holds the appropriate qualifications. Simon James is a well known local figure having lived in the area since 1965. His considerable experience in the industry more recently includes very successful management of a branch of a well respected local independent firm over 10 years.  Local knowledge leads to...

Accurate market appraisals
When it comes to advising on a suitable Guide Price for a property our detailed knowledge of local and national market conditions combined with professionally supplied market data provides essential and relevant information. We review all factors including local demand, recent prices achieved, social influences, the location and character of a property, market trends and the client’s requirements. Then what is needed is...
 
Good property presentation and effective marketing
We produce compelling and professionally presented sale particulars with floor plans – essential in attracting potential buyers. Our printed brochures are carefully composed to highlight the main ‘selling features’ of each property normally with large format photographs – after all, we live in a visual age. Instead of a ‘one size fits all’ approach we treat each property as individual aiming to expose it to its natural market. Our local office ‘shop window’ is in a prominent ‘high street’ position with large format window displays. It is our belief that the image of the property should take priority over the advertising of our name. We also inform potential buyers by...
 
Promotion
We advertise in the West Sussex County Times, the West Sussex Gazette and Sussex Life magazine. We produce our own Property Magazine in conjunction with The Guild of Property Professionals. We send editorial pieces with photographs to the national property correspondents – very useful for obtaining extra publicity particularly for unusual properties. Buyers today focus on...
 
Websites
With over 80% of enquiries generated ‘on line’ it is essential to be well presented on websites. At Comyn and James we feature our properties on our own website ( www.comyandjames.co.uk ) plus Rightmove, OnTheMarket, Guildproperty (website of The Guild of Property Professionals), Globrix, Homes24 and The National Association of Estate Agent’s own dedicated website. What about London buyers...

Keeping you informed
Successful marketing and sales rely on accurate information and regular communication between the  agent, the seller, the buyer, solicitors, surveyors and financial advisors. We aim to give our clients prompt feedback after viewings and to ensure they are kept up to date on a regular basis with progress in respect of marketing and/or the sale transaction. Knowing people is the key...
 
Useful contacts
Having lived and worked locally for many years the staff of Comyn and James have built up a remarkably wide range of contacts both personal and professional. This includes specialists in many fields from solicitors and surveyors to relocation agents, cleaners, removal firms, local councillors, storage firms and more. This can often be of assistance to our clients and buyers – especially to those new to the area. Ok, but what about the Contract...
 
No long term fixed contracts
We believe in earning the privilege to market our clients’ properties. We do not tie them into long term contracts as we would rather be judged by our performance. All we ask is for a short notice period and our clients are free to take their instructions elsewhere. Naturally we hope this will not be necessary as it is our aim to provide a first class service. And to complete our service...
