Leading estate agents DB Roberts have sold twice as many properties this year than in 2012 – and expect 2016 to continue this trend.
DB Roberts Chairman, Bill Brookes, attributes the firm’s success to a combination of factors:
‘First and foremost, these brilliant results are down to our excellent branch teams throughout Shropshire, Staffordshire and the West Midlands. There’s no substitute for staff who are experienced estate agents, know the local markets and work to high standards. Here at DB Roberts, we are proud of our staff retention and training programmes – our staff turnover is less than half that of the national average for the industry.
‘Sellers and buyers alike appreciate being able to contact DB Roberts to arrange viewings and valuations, make offers and book mortgage appointments. Because our telephones are answered by DB Roberts’ own staff between 8am and 8pm on weekdays, 9 until 4 on Saturdays and between 10 and 4 on Sundays, we are able to offer a service which other agents cannot match.
‘Combine this all-important human element with our state of the art website, innovative marketing including exclusive video walkthrough tours, unbeatable local press advertising and prominently located town centre branches, and you have an unbeatable property sales proposition.
‘We also offer an in-house conveyancing service including on-line case tracking, suitable for both sellers and buyers, which can cut transaction times by 2 weeks or more. Plus, we have a team of award winning mortgage advisers who provide our buyers with access to a wide range of mortgage and insurance services.
‘DB Roberts and its associated Group Companies have exciting plans for 2016 and our staff of over 100 are looking forward to a great year.
