It is not often that a house is sold above the asking price after just 24 hours on the market – but that’s what a successful estate agency in Lees can boast.
Smooth Moves, based on the village high street, managed to attract three offers in super-quick time and negotiate a great deal for the house in Greenfield.
And their clients – who approached the agency after spotting their advert in the Saddleworth Independent – were delighted with their work.
The couple said: “We were stunned that it sold so quickly! We achieved over the asking price and also saved around £2,000 by using Jayne’s fixed sales fee rather than a percentage fee.
“Jayne was very hands-on from the beginning and knew exactly what we wanted to achieve.
“Right from the build-up she was very professional and very quick, and also got impartial advice for us which was helpful. We highly recommend her to anyone.”
The sale was another boost for Smooth Moves, run by Jayne Strang, as they go from strength to strength since moving from Oldham town centre just four months ago.
“One of the main reasons we moved out of the town centre was to be part of village life. People have welcomed us in and been very supportive,” explained Jayne.
“When I first started with the company, it was lettings only so we’ve grown a lot since then and it’s nice to see a lot more of our sales boards going up across the area.
“Of course, we always welcome new clients and new properties so please come in to have a chat to see how we can help you.”
She added: “We offer a set sales fee of £995 rather than a percentage then people know where they are up to and are not trying to work things out last minute.
“We provide a one-to-one service so the same person will value your house, do the views and be there to support you and offer a really personal service.”
Smooth Moves also have a booming lettings department offering properties in Saddleworth, Mossley and Oldham as well as across Manchester and Stockport.
Jayne revealed: “We like to think we’re ahead of the game as we’ve been testing for Legionella and installing carbon monoxide detectors long before it was compulsory by law.
“We also have good relationships with local mortgage advisors and solicitors, including O’Donnells just across the road, to help get everything in place.”
Smooth Moves was established in 2011 but Jayne has been in the industry since 2007. They are listed on major property portals including Right Move and On The Market.
