GHE is one of London’s most trusted and friendly independent estate agents dedicated to serving the riverside postcodes that surround our central London offices, but with an extensive portfolio of homes and investments, and qualified buyers with interests, that stretch across the capital. We’re not your average estate agent because we combine an intimate knowledge of central London property with a tenacity to always do the best for our vendors.
Here are just a few of the reasons you should book a valuation appointment today:
Valued to Sell
We know what your home is worth, and how far we can realistically push this price. We’ll honestly and accurately value your property for sale, then we’ll fight tooth and nail to achieve it for you.
Your home sold for the best possible price is our shared goal, and we achieve this through strong online and offline mass marketing campaigns that put your property in front of millions of buyers.
Viewings are your home’s opportunity to shine, to impress and win the hearts of a potential buyer, something only possible with the help of a confident and knowledgeable estate agent guide.
Our highly trained, experience-hardened property consultants drive sales through every day with a combination of strong negotiation skills and an appreciation for everyone’s needs in the deal.
We’re dedicated to a quality service every day and for every vendor, and to go some way to prove this we are proud members of industry leading institutions, The Property Ombudsman and the DPS.
Support to Completion
Whatever it takes, we’re here to ensure that your sale progresses swiftly, smoothly and successfully to completion. We’re not done until your home is sold and you are happy.
We must have valued thousands of properties across London over the years, which not only gives us a deep appreciation for the variations in price by postcode and even by street, but also the shifting nature of a market that we keep a close and constant watchful eye on.
While some might speculate or overreach when valuing in an ever-changing property market, we have always prided ourselves on walking that fine line between realistic and optimistic. We value properties to sell, not to have them propping up our portfolio for months on end, then we fight for every penny of that valuation to help you to gain full value from the capital you have locked up in your home.
After more than a decade of selling homes we know the most effective marketing strategies. Though incredibly important today, we don’t just rely on the millions of people who research their next move on property portals such as Rightmove, Zoopla and PrimeLocation. Our own database of ready, willing and able buyers is a fantastic source of sales – then there are our window displays and a wide-reaching and very effective brand awareness campaign which are just a few of the ways in which we attract your ideal buyer, someone with passion for your home and the budget to back this up.
Alongside our marketing we also take the time to review and address any potential weaknesses to your home’s saleability, use fantastic photographers to present your property in its best light, and create floor plans and property details designed to wow potential viewers.
There are few things more irritating for a vendor than an estate agent who turns up to a viewing knowing nothing about your home. When you start to believe that you can do a better job selling your home than the professionals you’re paying to do so, something has gone wrong.
Every one of our consultants prides themselves on knowing all they can about your home before they turn up. Where possible, each consultant in our team will visit your property to get a better feel for it and to learn its story so that they can conduct viewings with confidence and an appreciation for the features most likely to help potential buyers to feel that this could be the right home for them.
However successful we are at getting buyers all fired up about your property, difficult conversations still need to take place about money. To ensure that you get what you want for your home, every one of our skilled sales consultants is trained extensively in negotiation strategy.
Surprisingly, for some, this is not about pressure. Driving a buyer into a sale they’re not completely comfortable with helps nobody, as they have plenty of time to pull out of the deal. Effective negotiation is about achieving your goals (price and completion dates) while also respecting the needs of the buyer; it’s about being tough, but also about balance and fairness – something unique that we bring to every sale.
Estate agents get a bad rap, as all are tarred with the brush meant for the few who conduct themselves poorly. At GHE we would love you to consider us different, but we know that mere words would not be enough – after all, isn’t that what every estate agency says? So we don’t just say it, we show it too.
As individuals dedicated to customer care, and a company ethos that demands our honesty and integrity every day, we are different, but as proud members of two of the industry’s finest umbrella bodies – The Property Ombudsman and The Deposit Protection Service – we are committed to upholding the highest standards as well.
Support to Completion
A sale does not happen when an offer is agreed. That’s just an indication that the hard work is about to begin. Far too many sales fall through due to agency indifference, but at GHE we are committed to standing shoulder to shoulder with you right up to completion. We’re here to answer questions, to handle worries, and to keep the lines of communication open with buyers and sellers up the chain, their solicitors, mortgage brokers and lenders, so issues can be recognised and dealt with, snags avoided and sales progress more swiftly.
