Choosing An Agency
There are lots of agents around, and most handle the basics. It can be tempting to select someone who quotes the highest sale price or lowest commission rate or fee structure. However, some agents may inflate the potential price of your home just to get the listing. Some offer lower fees, but their motivation to sell your property could be diminished if their profits are minimal.
The key is to choosing the agency that will introduce the most potential buyers to your home, and negotiate the top sale price in the minimum time, with the minimum of fuss. This means choosing an agency with depth of expertise, years of experience, a strong track record and motivated staff who are supported by the right training and technology.
The choice isn’t that hard if you simply ask yourself:
A – who is established and experienced?
B – who has the proven sales record?
C – who provides real customer satisfaction?
D – who proves that marketing makes all the difference?

Marketing Makes All The Difference
Effective marketing does make a difference and it is one of the things we excel in.
At Woolcock Partners we don’t just put advertisements into the paper, that’s advertising not marketing. A powerful marketing programme ensures that enough “right buyers” know about your property, buyers who will make a dollar difference to your bottom line.
Why are our marketing programmes so popular?
We do the research.
We know where the buyers come from because we ask them. Our ongoing research ensures our marketing is targeted at where the buyers are looking. This inevitably means superior levels of enquiry, and as seller, that will translate to more offers and a better sale price.
Marketing, where you are in control?
All of our marketing programmes are up front and designed to dovetail with your lifestyle, that means you stay in control.
