PropertyWorld's Kevin Owen crowned Best Estate Agent in London 2018
Published: 24/09/2018 Last Updated: 28/09/2018 17:26:31 Tags: News, Awards
These awards are based purely on customer feedback, so thank you to our wonderful clients for taking the time to review our service, and here are a few words from our main man, Kevin:
“I am now into my 16th year as an estate agent and still loving it. I’m a people person and love houses, so this job was made for me. I really like the personal touch that comes from working with a family run estate agents - Property World’s ethos centres around honesty and integrity, and that sits well with me. It’s just easier to be nice.
This job should be easy - all I have to do is match the right person with the right property. I need to know as much as I can about the buyers needs right from the outset, and ask the right questions when the initial call comes in. Sometimes it takes one viewing, sometimes twenty, but if you know exactly what the client’s needs are then you're already halfway there.
Knowledge is power and turning up to viewings on time with all the information a buyer will want is a must - it’s shocking the amount of viewers who, when you first meet them, will tell you that the estate agent they had met at a previous property didn’t have the lease length, ground rent or service charge information.
I am so proud to have received the award for Best Estate Agent in London. It’s really warming to know that the reviews have come direct from both vendors and buyers. I will be looking to carry this onto 2019, so watch out London agents - I’m looking to keep this crown”.
The allAgents 2018 People Awards are based entirely on feedback from clients rating and sharing their customer service experiences, and are the UK's largest free customer awards scheme for agents and people working within the property industry.

High Street Vs Online Agents: Getting the best sale for your property
Published: 23/04/2018 Last Updated: 23/04/2018 19:43:34 Tags: News, Article
PropertyWorld was established 21 years ago and is a local family business. Our owners Richard and Dan Crowley have grown up and lived in the areas we operate in, and their expertise is unrivalled. Being part of the community, living and working in the area, gives our team insight and local expertise that’s appreciated by our buyers and sellers alike.
From day one we set out to deliver exceptional results on behalf of clients; to be honest and trustworthy, and to provide the best customer service possible. As a result vendors will never incur upfront or hidden fees, and if for any reason a property does not sell there is no charge. Online agents that take fees upfront have less incentive to work hard to secure a sale, whereas we have a genuine desire to achieve the best possible price from buyers in the best position, minimising stress and disruption to sellers as far as possible.
When it comes to online agents your signature on the contract is when they start caring less, whereas for us that's when we start caring more. Our flexible but hands-on approach means that we will always conduct viewings at times convenient to you. Using our years of experience we will help you to get your property looking its best (with our free house doctor service) so potential buyers can see how your property could be an excellent fit for them.
There is no replacement for face-to-face conversation, and being able to speak directly to the agent conducting viewings of your home. You will have the mobile numbers of both the Director and Sales Manager looking after you so you can always reach us, anytime.
Our reviews show that over 99% of our clients would recommend our services to friends and family, ranking us No.30 of 15,300 UK agents. In 2017 we were delighted to win AllAgents award for 'Best Small Chain in the UK', testament to our team's hard work and dedication to making the process of buying and selling as painless and as smooth as possible. We care about what we do and the people we’re working with.
The result? On average we find buyers within 4 weeks and over 91% of our sales successfully complete. We achieve full asking price on over 60% of our properties (the UK average is 27%).
By contrast, recent research by GetAgent (in July '17) looked at 500 instructions by online agents, finding that: when they looked at all online agents instructions over a 14 month period between Jan '16 and Feb '17 around half hadn’t sold, that almost half those interviewed felt the online agent they chose was poor value for money, and 40% spent more time than expected managing the sales process.
Finding a buyer is only a small part of our job. A bigger part of our job is managing the sales process once an offer has been agreed - liaising with agents, solicitors and those in a chain, dealing with problems before they grow and derail a sale, communicating, reassuring buyers and vendors.
Our award winning service is based on our direct knowledge of you, your buyers and the property - a winning combination that is key to a successful sale.

Buying and selling in 2018

Despite a cautious market, the relatively low mortgage rates should remain, with any further interest level increases minimal. The Autumn Budget will boost affordability for First Time Buyers in the short-term, and further government investment in Help To Buy schemes will provide some support for sales.
