Choose Peter Illingworth

Your property deserves a skilled property professional to attain the best price. That’s why it is best to choose Peter Illingworth. His firm will offer the best local knowledge. They will know who’s buying and who’s selling. Most importantly they will know what the selling prices are, rather than just the asking prices.

Estate agency is a highly competitive business. Some firms will offer low fees to attract custom and some estate agents will overvalue to secure business. Valuable time can be lost if the asking price is incorrect – and it could jeopardise your purchase of another property.

It’s important that your property is on the internet. But today all estate agents offer the internet. The internet does attract buyers but it won't negotiate in your favour - or handle complicated transactions.

Peter Illingworth has the support and back up of an energetic and pro-active marketing office in London to help extend publicity range and market penetration. Then there are his 350 associated offices around the UK. Plus offices around the world in places like New York, Miami, Paris and Madrid.

So now the decision is yours. There are many estate agents to choose from. There are online agents and cut-price agents to tempt you. But before you make a choice let Peter Illingworth tell you about his firm's superior service which will serve you well and ensure that you receive the best price within your time frame.
