Real Estate Agents-Saving Time, Money & Street

Whether you are a busy individual looking for your dream home, a relocating business, or a property investor, Real Estate Agents can help you. Premier Property Search consultants have the in-depth local knowledge, responsive market contacts, and specialist experience to acquire the perfect property for you.


From drawing up your wish list, to putting the key in the front door, here’s how your Real Estate Agent can save you time, stress and money:

1. Your free initial consultation


Your Real Estate Agent will begin by discussing your needs and aspirations with you in detail. Together you can tap into Premier Property Search’s vast experience and up-to-date knowledge of the market to set a clear and achievable brief.

2. The property search and shortlist


Once our Real Estate Agent fully understands your requirements, the search begins.


Your Real Estate Agent will save you hours of trawling through endless property web sites, or rounds of fruitless phone calls. We will talk to our unparalleled network of estate agents, developers, property investors, and local contacts relevant to your search.


A list of properties which match your brief is then drawn up, some of which may not yet have come on to the open market. Your Real Estate Agent will visit and scrutinize each one, ready to present a fail safe shortlist to you.

3. Time for you to decide


At a time that suits you, your Real Estate Agent will accompany you to view the short listed properties. You can spend half a day or perhaps a whole day looking at properties, all of which match your requirements.


Your time looking at properties will be an informative and enjoyable experience, rather than fraught with stress and disappointment.


More often than not we will have found your ideal property. If not, both you and your Real Estate Agent will have a clearer idea of your requirements, and the search can continue.

4. Negotiation on your behalf


Once you have made your choice, your Real Estate Agent will negotiate the best possible price. We nearly always guarantee to achieve a significant discount on the asking price.

5. The home straight


Once your offer has been formally accepted, your Real Estate Agent will take the hard work out of the buying process. We liaise with all parties on your behalf - the estate agent or private seller, the solicitors, surveyors, mortgage brokers and any other stakeholders. In what is often a complicated, frustrating and time consuming process, your Real Estate Agent will use their skills and professionalism to overcome any obstacles and ensure a smooth transaction.
