What we do?

Why is this important?

Introduce clients to the best buying or selling agent

Without getting the best agency on board, up front, you delay realizing your property goals. Many of us know who the main agencies are in our area but sales and purchases are based on relationships. Who introduced the buyer on the last sale? Which team member in a particular office is the best performing agent? Michelle knows and if she doesn’t, she knows someone who does.

Find the right buying agent
Purchasing a home is one of the most important and costly decisions anyone will make. The right advice and guidance is key. Experience and expertise matter in finding the right house, ensuring that you also pay the right price. Michelle will put you in direct contact with the market leaders in property acquisition in your area, with your budget in mind.
Find the right selling agent
Choosing the correct real estate agent to sell your home is one of the most important decisions you’ll make. It can be the difference between your home sitting on the market for months or selling quickly, realising a better sale price. Your home is a very personal, important, and valuable asset, and it can be an emotional and complicated endeavour to sell it, especially in today’s challenging marketplace. Numerous questions and concerns will need to be addressed, and the advice that you receive can make a tremendous difference in the results. Marketing and advertising, remodelling and/or upgrading, photography, internet exposure, staging, design, floor-plan measurements, videography, timing and presentation, inspections, pre-market exposure, agent outreach and relationships, pricing, and dozens more nuances and subtleties all make the difference between failure and a successful sale. Michelle has had personal experience in all these complications, spanning over 25 years. Michelle will put you in direct contact with the market leaders in sales and with specific agents that are performing well in your neighbourhood. Speaking their language, she will put your interests above everything else,
Negotiate a contract with transparency
Many agents have a standard fee structure but with Michelle providing a volume of business to agencies she can often get a commission structure that is more competitive. In addition, Michelle understands how fees within agencies are divided up so she can ensure that your property is placed competitively on agent only marketing platforms from day one, saving you both time and money.
Cost to you
Michelle undertakes the introduction and negotiating tasks at no cost to her clients. She is paid by the agents upon successful completion of the contract.
Ensure your property stands out from the competition – staging advice and pre sales preparation

In a competitive market, the property that sells quickest or for the best price, needs to demonstrate real value. This can come down to price or that “wow” factor. Agents do not have time to take you through the de-clutter and staging process. Michelle can take the time to ensure that from day one her Black Book services can be called on to give your property the best chance of succeeding. In addition, Michelle can cut through the real estate jargon and will give you honest views on price and timing, which can help inform your strategy.

Bring first hand experience

Michelle has bought and sold in Central London since 1995. Michelle lives in SW3 and is very much a part of the local community. Her list of contacts and real estate relationships are extensive and available to her clients. Many agents might buy and sell in the area but not live there or not have done the volume of transactions that Michelle has personally done. It is not often that clients can be supported by people that have had that much personal experience, who are willing to share their knowledge.
Services

FOCUSED

Michelle is results focused, in line with client timeframes, ensuring commission is competitive and marketing strategy is sound.  

Successful agency relationships are based on trust, honesty and discretion.  Many people spend time interviewing team members at work but no time in ‘interviewing’ agencies for property sales.  Michelle has personal experience in that hard work, and will put the best teams in front of clients for their consideration. 

For many of us, buying and selling our homes is a stressful and time-consuming process.  Michelle understands this and is set up to get the first stages off on the right foot, setting clients up for the best chance of success. 

Additional services include staging advice and bespoke pre-sale preparation services.
