It was a “chance” meeting in more ways than one that helped a Bognor Regis couple sell their home for the full asking price with Sims Williams after a single viewing.
Kerry Chance and Ollie Powell had found a house they wanted to buy and were visiting their mortgage broker to sort out their finances.
The couple asked their broker if he would recommend an estate agent and he had no hesitation in suggesting Sims Williams.
Moments later, purely by chance, in walked John Wyatt who leads Sims Williams’ Bognor Regis property sales.
After the introductions, John arranged to visit Kerry and Ollie’s 4-bedroomed semi-detached home in the town centre to carry out a valuation and they jointly agreed an asking price.
One viewing was all it took
The first potential buyer John accompanied to the property fell in love with the 1930’s house and offered the full asking price straight away.
Kerry and Ollie, and their two young sons Fred and Charlie, their two adorable dogs Gracie and Winston, plus the family cat and a hamster, have now all settled in to their new home, just five minutes away from their previous property.
Sims Williams – not stereotypical estate agents
For Kerry, the sale process was far smoother than she expected and dealing with Sims Williams was refreshingly easy.
“There is a stereotypical view of estate agents as pushy and aggressive and Sims Williams blew that stigma out of the water.
“John and everyone we spoke to at Sims Williams came across as honest, genuine and hard-working and we felt they were always on our side and just as keen as us to progress the sale quickly,” says Kerry.
Proud to be different
Sims Williams is one of the area’s longest-established estate agents and prides itself on providing a truly personal service and honest, well-informed advice.
John says, “At Sims Williams, we never forget that the properties we sell are “homes,” and we never underestimate the emotional as well as financial investment homes represent, especially when it is time to move on.
“We appreciate the trust people place in us and repay that by working hard on their behalf and treating them with the respect and honesty they have every right to expect from a good estate agent,” says John.
Sims Williams has been helping its clients to sell, rent and buy their homes since 1981.
