The Guild of Property Professionals
We are an established member of The Guild of Professional Estate Agents, the number one Independent Estate Agency Network approaching 800 offices. We network our properties with hundreds of other members throughout the UK and also offer regional magazine advertising, a national referral system, advertising from a national property centre in London’s Park Lane and an exclusive property portal www.guildproperty.co.uk.
We will feature your property in a high quality Property/Lifestyle magazine as part of our marketing package at no extra cost. The magazines are distributed both locally and regionally through fellow members of The Guild of Property Professionals and they really increase the visibility of your property to the right target market.
These stylish electronic magazines are regularly sent to all registered applicants on our database and contain details/video clips of all our properties for sale. Click here for the latest E-Zine
We will produce a FREE videoette for your property highlighting the best features in eye-catching video format. These are then used throughout our digital marketing.
Social Media Engagement
We recognize the importance of social media as another strong advertising medium and we have our own regularly updated Facebook and Twitter pages to fully engage with all the social media addicts.
Extensive Applicant Database
As well as using the latest cutting edge technology to market our properties we still recognize the importance of a good applicant register and our offices are adding prospective buyers on a daily basis who are regularly contacted via phone, SMS or email with new instructions, E-Zines and price changes.
As standard, we add a detailed floor plan to every property listing. Both on the sales particulars and online. We are regularly told by purchasers that these are vital in their decision making process.
We consider this an intrinsic part of our role as your Agent and all viewing appointments, where possible, will be accompanied by a member of the Abbey team. This enables us to provide you with immediate feedback from the viewing to act upon if necessary. We also believe our presence at the viewing is important for client peace of mind.
We will list your property as standard on the most active websites including Rightmove as well as our own modern and user-friendly site and The Guild of Property Professionals exclusive portal.
