“It was absolutely the right thing to do, not to just go with who we knew but to look around”
Nobody thinks choosing an agent is a problem, until it costs you £30k.
Chris and Cass Miller-Jones wanted to sell their house and planned to go with the agent they used ten years ago and already knew of as they didn’t think there would be a difference or a benefit in choosing someone else.
Chris and Cass tried the new concept Find your Agent by BestAgent and ended up selling their home faster than they imagined for over £30k more than expected.
Going with what they ‘knew’ would have cost them £30k if they hadn’t considered all of their local agents and widened their search beyond for sale boards, marketing and who they’d used before.
“I think in all honesty if we hadn’t used BestAgent to help us identify who was in the market i think we would have probably just gone with who we bought from who also happened to be who with sold with before we moved here ten or so years ago”
“I think in retrospect it was absolutely the right thing to do not to just go with who we knew but to look around”
“Within a week we had 8 – 10 viewings. An offer that was over asking price, plus two other people interested. It doesn’t get much better than that. ”
“Our experience now is that it’s hugely important to choose the right agent, but not just the brand it’s the individual.”

“Hey Charlie, I wanted to let you know we sold our house and are now looking for somewhere to buy!
We went with Ben from Fine & Country, who you lined us up with, and got an offer over asking price within a week!
