No obligation meeting
The first step is to arrange a meeting to learn about your requirements and to discuss how the service works. Consultants advise on market conditions and how to maximise what is achievable for your budget within your chosen area(s). Your consultant will be your single point of contact and oversee the entire process, liaising with estate agents, solicitors, bankers, surveyors and other professional advisors on your behalf.How can we assist you?
Comprehensive search brief
Each client has unique and specific requirements. Our consultants work closely to create a focused brief from which they search. Due consideration is given to individual lifestyles and living requirements and advice provided on the most suitable areas, architectural styles and internal configuration.How can we assist you?
Area familiarisation tour
A tour of preferred and/or suggested areas can be arranged before the property search commences. This usually entails a one to two day driven tour through selected areas. The purpose is to show the different property styles and values, local amenities and transport links for the client to then consider the pros and cons of each area. Although part of our property search service, this is also available without commitment to non-clients.How can we assist you?
It takes approximately ten days to carry out our initial research and previews before the first, client attended, property tour. Subsequent tours become increasingly targeted and continue until the perfect property is found. We proactively source property which is being openly, as well as quietly, marketed through estate agents, developers and private owners. It is this exhaustive approach to searching which gives early, or pre-market, access to property. Garrington have long standing relationships with estate agents, who give priority information on properties because they value the efficiency we bring to the home buying process and know Garrington only looks after committed purchasers.How can we assist you?

Consultants oversee all research and negotiations on their client’s behalf. It is essential to establish a considered opinion of value before starting negotiations in order to give clients confidence in the price they ultimately pay. Once a property has been selected, consultants assess the comparable evidence, discuss tactics and handle the negotiation. In instances where the vendor has more than one bid to consider, Garrington’s relationships and reputation can cast influence, and sometimes prove critical, in tipping the balance in our clients’ favour.How can we assist you?
Clients receive month-end reports enabling them to review the work undertaken, to date, on their behalf. Reports review search activity and highlight any conclusions and/or changes to the brief. Once a property is agreed, consultants produce a comprehensive Property Report which includes comparable sales figures, evaluation of market data and local area information.How can we assist you?
