accessible estate agency

We’re really excited to tell you about how we’ve changed our company to fit in with  the modern world, without sacrificing our core values.  We believe these changes mean greater accessibility to potential buyers and tenants, which is only a good thing to our vendors and landlords.

Over the years many businesses in all sorts of industries have adapted their business model to cater for the changing needs of their customers. In our view, the estate agency industry has been rather slow to change the way it operates. These days you can do your weekly shop at 3 in the morning if you want, you can book a holiday at the touch of a button and can transfer money direct from your phone 24/7.  So why is estate agency still a Monday to Saturday 9-5:30 industry? It’s because that is the way it has always been done.  Well, we think it’s high time there was a change.

We are  continuing to improve what we do, you can now view property or have a valuation of your own home 7 days a week.   You can also call and talk to us from 8:30 in the morning to 8pm Monday to Friday, 9am to 5:30pm on Saturday and 10am to 4pm on a Sunday.  We’ve also updated our website giving our sellers round the clock access to their property file. Check viewings, read feedback and keep all documents in one place. It’s also simple for potential buyers, they are now able to book viewings for your property directly from the website, on their computer, tablet or phone!

When you sell your home through Chamberlains you will get the very best local knowledge from qualified staff you know, like and trust. Your home will be advertised in all the normal ways, but potential buyers will also be able to book a viewing direct from your property listing on our website, or by calling any of the office’s  7 days a week.  Essentially we have broken down any barriers a customer may face dealing with a 9-5:30 estate agent. As a buyer or seller through Chamberlains, you’ll also have your own online account so you can see viewing info along with feedback and be able to see at a glance the progress of your sale.

We are really excited by these changes and hope to really show you what we can do when you decide to buy, sell, rent out or let through us.

Star Property!

Mulberry House, Dawlish – £650,000

A stylish, spacious and modern family home located in the small seaside town of Dawlish. Boasting six bedrooms it is ideal for multi-generational living or home and income.

The entire ground floor lends itself for the possibility of separate living with two double bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen and generous lounge/dining space with access to the rear garden. The main part of the property offers a stunning and extensive kitchen and dining area with access to a balcony which offers sea views over to Exmouth and enjoys the morning sun. A large lounge also has doors to the balcony, again with a stunning outlook.

There is a front facing room which is currently an office but would make a nice sized dining room if required. A cloakroom finishes off the floor at entrance level for the property, making ideal living space. The top floor comprises a good-sized bathroom, four spacious double bedrooms and a generously sized landing area, perfect for a small study corner. There is also a garage, parking and garden.

10 ideas for neutral living rooms

There’s nothing in your face about a neutral living room, but that’s rather the point. These subtle schemes don’t vie for attention, but rather offer an understated, elegant space that allows the senses to relax. While usefully impervious to the fickle nature of fads (no buyer’s remorse over a neon-pink sofa here), there are still many ways to interpret the look to best suit the style of your room and, of course, personal taste. Check out the examples below for inspiration.

Same service, new look

We hope you like our new branding. We’ve been working on it for the last few months and we’re delighted with the final result.

Chamberlains has always prided itself on providing a friendly and professional service to our sellers, buyers, landlords and tenants and we believe that our new look injects a more modern and contemporary feel to our brand, which is more in keeping with our approach.

You may have seen that all of our office fascias have been changed over to the new brand image and we’ve also taken the opportunity to completely revamp our website which is now easier than ever to navigate.

A re-brand has been a great opportunity to evaluate our position in the market place and to consider our service standards and we are now determined more than ever to exceed expectations.

For a long time, Chamberlains has been among the first agents to adopt new technology, new marketing techniques and to innovate and our new image better represents our open-minded attitude to embracing new concepts.

After all:

we’re the only local agents that print, produce and circulate our own property paper that gets delivered to over 22,000 local addresses;

we have the largest rental department in the area which is about to become ARLA accredited;

we send out a weekly property e-newsletter with a featured property and relevant property news (sign up for it on our website);

we have an in-house mortgage adviser with access to over 80 lenders;

we’re part of the Fine & Country network of agents dealing with upmarket properties;

we make a contribution to Rowcroft Hospice for every sale that we make which has resulted in donations of over £11,000 in the last twelve months.

When it comes to choosing an agent, why not choose Chamberlains!
