Once you decide to sell, the next step is to choose an Estate Agent that’s right for you. This is not easy because no two agents are the same - service and performance vary massively! Fees vary too. So, when choosing an agent, it's tempting to just go with the cheapest. But like anything you can buy, cheapest rarely gets the best results. And when it comes to selling, you especially need to select the agent that will get you the most money for your home, not necessarily the one quoting the lowest fee. After all, would you rather save a few hundred on fees or get thousands more for your property?
So, why choose Mark Antony Estates?
Independent research by The Homeowners Alliance assessed the performance of over 18,000 estate agents.
This research concluded that we are amongst the top 5% agents in the whole country! If you really want to acheive the highest selling price for your home, then choose Mark Antony Estates.

Market Leading Stats
We have built our business on getting solid and measurable results for our customers. Selling your home for the highest price within the shortest time is always our primary focus.
The best way to compare agents is to consider, how many properties they list versus how many they actually sell. During the first 6 months of 2019, according to Rightmove, we're the leading agent selling 91% of what we list - way above the local average.
We are experts in property marketing and skilled negotiators. We aim to secure competing offers for your property and on average we secure 3.6 offers and negotiate an extra 4.8% for our clients. On a typical £250,000 property, that's £12,000 more. And on a £500,000 property it's a whopping £24,000 more! Some Agents will encourage you to take the first offer. At Mark Antony Estates, we love working hard to get you more!Source of Data:

Do I really need a For-Sale Board?
YES! We have seen up to 30% of enquiries from a For-Sale Board. You wouldn't want to hide your property from all those potential buyers would you? Remember, selling property quickly and for the highest price is about reaching as many buyers as possible.
Should I do my own viewings?
If you are confident and know how to conduct a viewing professionally, then maybe...
We get best results when we show prospective purchasers around for 2 main reasons. Firstly, by the time the viewing takes place, we have already built up a rapport with the buyer and know what they are looking for. We can then tailor our approach to highlight the key elements of your home that will appeal to them most. Secondly, viewers are often too polite to give homeowners useful feedback directly. This makes it difficult to handle any of their concerns if we don't know their true feelings. On the other hand, viewers are much more likely to tell our viewing representative what they really think and place us in the best position to sell your property.
All Estate Agents are the same, right?
No. Locally, there's one or two exceptional estate agents, several are mediocre, and a couple of really bad agents. Service and performance varies massively.
Here is just one example:
According to Rightmove data, Mark Antony Estates sold 91% of the properties it listed. Most agents sell around 60% to 70%, but the poorest performing agent sells just 25%. Choose your agent wisely, no two agents are the same.
Do you charge a fee if my property doesn't sell?
No we don't - you only pay us for success! If we fail to secure you a buyer within a reasonable time period, you can walk away without paying us any commission whatsoever. Take care to establish this with other Agents - especially DIY Online Agents. Most of these require you to pay up front, or even take out some sort of 'buy now pay later' financing... and you lose all your money if you don't end up selling.
Can you advise me on the best mortgage deals?
Yes, indeed we can! We have an in-house mortgage advisor you can call in and see during office hours, or if preferred, we can arrange a home visit during evenings or weekends. With access to over 120 lenders, including all major banks and building societies, our advisor will help you find the best lender for your circumstances.
