The team at Lindfield’s newest High Street estate agent celebrated last month at the official launch of Jackson-Stops here in the village.

Toby Whittome and Guy Kelsey ran sales and acquisition departments at Jackson-Stops in Central London before making a decision to open a Mid Sussex branch of the national agency.

Toby explained: “Having grown up just outside Scaynes Hill, I know this area extremely well! I love now being able to work so close to home and our location on Lindfield’s amazing High Street couldn’t be better for us.”

Jackson-Stops is open six days a week at 66 High Street – the former home of SWALK.

“Our door is open for a chat – something which I am pleased to say has already started to happen,” Guy commented.

Lindfield: what an amazing place to live!

Welcome to our first market report of 2017. Christmas and New Year have gone by in a flash, and soon we’ll be talking of Easter!

A question Estate Agents are always asked is ‘what is the market doing and is it a good time to sell?’. Now, we know Lindfield is beautiful all year round, but from a property transaction point of view, it really comes alive in spring time. From a marketing perspective, whatever style and size of home you have, the demand will certainly be there. Prices remain strong and we see that continuing for certainly the next six months at least.

A great example are two homes we have agreed sales on this year within walking distance of The Witch. Both sets of buyers are not only buying a home that exactly fits what they are looking for, but they have also fallen in love with the village, which isn’t a surprise with the fantastic array of independent shops and fabulous places to eat and enjoy amazing coffee!

We always talk about how Move Revolution is different. Following a recent very successful sale in Lindfield, we wanted to share this independent raterAgent review from one of our many happy clients: “Matthew and Mark did a superb job selling our property in Lindfield. We had 13 viewings in the first week, and an asking price offer within a fortnight! The professional photos they took of our home were simply fantastic - much better than anything else we’d seen from other agents. We just wanted our lovely home to be viewed in the best way possible. We were really pleased with our online listing. We also had a number of viewings (which they always undertook) which made full use of their 7 days a week service.”

What the review doesn’t tell you is that rather than answer questions by email on a Sunday morning that the sellers had about their move, we went to see them at 8pm that evening. We chatted through their thoughts face to face with an agreed action plan for the coming week.

We recognise that our industry really is 24/7, and that for many clients, it is far easier to talk in the evenings and at weekends than it is during the day. Our approach to estate agency really is different, the above review demonstrates this and our personal approach. If you are thinking of moving or letting out your property, please give us a call on 01444 657657. I would love the opportunity to visit you, value your home and support you with your next house move.
