How to choose a good estate agent in north London

Walk down any High Street in north London and you'll probably find more than a handful of estate agents. As a seller, how do you choose an agent you can trust' The Daily Telegraph recently ran an article on how to select a good estate agent and it's a subject that's worth revisiting, especially in a north London market that's gathering pace and subject to change. Your home is probably your most valuable asset, so a good agent should treat it with respect and market it like a prized possession. Winkworth prides itself on a first-class service for every client and we have refined our offering after years of experience representing vendors in north London. If you are thinking of selling your property and are not sure of what to look for when distinguishing estate agents in north London, here's our guide:- Longevity - find out how long an estate agent has been in operation. As a company, Winkworth has been acting for, buyers, sellers and investors in property since 1835. Our reputation has allowed us to successfully trade in the property business and expand, which gives our clients confidence. Online presence - if you are approaching an estate agent as a seller, it's wise to also appraise their website from the viewpoint of a buyer. After all, a property for sale in north London should be visible online and be easy to find if a buyer browses an estate agents' website. Make sure there there's a clear search function of the home page, as standard. Property portals - it's no secret that most purchasers start their buying journey online, and listing properties for sale in north London with the leading portals is a crucial part of an agent's marketing plan. Ask your agent what portals they are linked with and how quickly they post properties online. Network of offices - when it comes to property, strength is in numbers. If your estate agent has other offices in the local area and across the country (and internationally in the case of Winkworth), your property will gain more exposure and generate more interest, with enquiries being handled swiftly by the same company. An agent with a strong network is also more likely to find you a new home which to move to by calling on a huge variety of stock held across its branches. Industry memberships and standards - estate agency is not a regulated industry, so clients should look for a business that has a strong sense of self regulation, as well as voluntarily subscriptions to industry bodies and codes of conduct. Every Winkworth office is a member of The Ombudsman Services and we are a founder member of the SAFE agent initiative. We encourage every office to subscribe to the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA) and the National Approved Lettings Scheme (NALS).
