Why Use Gatekeeper
Whether you're selling a house or a flat, you'll get better service with Gatekeeper.
Over the last 25 years, we have established great relationships with our vendors, listening to what they want from their local estate agent, and as a result have developed a comprehensive service tailored to fit your needs...
Central Office, Local Focus
Our central office, local focus structure means that we offer excellent local market knowledge and service at leading prices. We all sit together under one roof but our local teams visit your property more often than many traditional agents, giving you the best of both worlds.
By making all colleagues shareholders we ensure we have the most driven and passionate people in the business, bringing you an unrivaled service. We have a personal interest in maintaining the highest standards, protecting our reputation and and providing the best for our customers.
Customers are the heart of our business and that's why their ideas, thoughts and views help us shape the business. We even share our feedback here
in real-time to show you what our customers are really saying about us.
All valuations are completed by your local Director. Their wealth of experience and knowledge of the market enables them to advise not only on price but also on who your target market is likely to be and how to maximise the appeal of your property in order to achieve the best price.
It's so important to understand how prospective buyers search. Along with Rightmove and Zoopla, we use 26 other property portals, plus optimised Google search and social media. Our own website offers mobile device functionality for smooth searching. See guide
for more details.
With almost half of prospective buyers unavailable during office hours, we ensure that our viewings diary is never closed. Whatever the time of day, prospective buyers can view and book available slots here
. We also specialise in evening and weekend viewings, so you won't miss out on a potential sale.
We provide every service you may need when buying a property, from mortgages to conveyancing, so it's all under one roof and you can relax in the knowledge that everything is taken care of.
Targeted Approach and Feedback
Our Sales Managers have an in-depth knowledge of their purchasers' requirements. This targeted approach often means that we can find the right buyer more quickly. They also give detailed feedback after each viewing, to both yourself and your local Director.
We've chosen to be a member of both The Property Ombudsman and the National Federation of Property Professionals and we're regulated by their Codes of Conduct. Put simply, this means that we're doing our jobs properly and our customers are protected.
Opening your doors to multiple buyers on one single day is a great way to showcase your property and gauge the level of interest. It can also help to drive competition for your property, often achieving a better price and a faster sale.
By selecting Gatekeeper, you show potential purchasers that your property sale is in the hands of a reputable brand. We have excellent staff, a helpful website, plus we share all customer feedback online. Demonstrating that we are trustworthy can make or break a property sale.
Moving home is a busy and stressful time. There are many people involved from solicitors, other estate agents, mortgage companies, as well as the other people in the chain. We have found that having someone to look after the arrangements (a Move Manager) takes a little of the stress away and results in more properties completing. See our guide
to selling for more information.
We secure more viewings for each property by presenting your property in its best light. By utilising professionally taken photographs, clear floor plans and smart property details cards, prospective purchasers clearly see the benefits of your property. This is all part of the service we offer as standard.
