A new Estate Agency, based at Plymouth Science Park, is adopting a fresh approach to selling houses.
By combining traditional ‘High Street’ methods, with online techniques, Keane and Parker are helping families to save money on fees. Mark Keane & Neil Parker have a combined experience spanning 50 years in the industry.
The team is meeting demand for traditional estate agency services, and, at the same time, maximising the full potential of the internet. In doing so, they are revolutionising the way in which home owners think about how they sell their property – by using the very best in online marketing techniques combined with traditional values to achieve results.
Using the excellent facilities provided by Plymouth Science Park, they can cover the whole of South Devon, and, as such, can offer all the support and values of a High Street company but at a price which can compete alongside the growing online estate agencies.
“The online national estate agents have quickly become faceless and charge high upfront fees without any guarantee of service. We work in the normal commission only basis, but able to charge just 0.6%, including VAT,” says Mark.
“We give all the services a seller needs such as accompanied viewings, negotiation and sales progression. These are important factors when an owner is looking to achieve the best price for their home.”
Since starting the business this summer, Mark & Neil have found demand for their services to be high as they have successfully marketed and sold properties across South Devon.
“Homeowners can receive a personal service, and engage with people they can trust who have a wealth of experience in the property industry,” adds Neil.
“We also can save sellers thousands of pounds and achieve them exactly the results they want from an agent. We are really excited about the future of our business and Plymouth Science Park provides us with a first class location and professional services – from the on-site bistro to exceptionally fast broadband.”
