Why Choose Clarkes Estates
Clarkes is a bright dynamic force in the local property market. Founded in 2006 by husband and wife team Paul and Paula Clarke, our office in Bognor Regis provides great coverage of the local coastal Sussex market. As a family business, personal recommendations really matter to us and account for a growing share of our new business.
Local Office/Local Knowledge
Our modern comfortable office has the latest technology and offers a great environment for customers and staff alike. We sell and rent property all over the local area – from Chichester along the coast to Worthing and right across mid Sussex as far north as Pulborough and Storrington. Our local knowledge and the years of experience which we have gained in the marketplace is invaluable – and will help you get the best price for your home and a sale to the right buyer – in a timescale that suits you.
Contactable 8am – 8pm
We are open when many other local agents have long closed.
Longer opening hours means more chance of finding a buyer and a better price – and means your home experience fits into YOUR busy schedule not around the times to suit us. With our local team of experts, we go the extra mile to get your home sold and that’s how our business keeps growing.
Stunning Brochures with Professional Standard Photography
Serious buyers look carefully at the property particulars, both on-line and in brochure format. Attention to detail matters. Your home is showcased in our stunning brochures with clear precise descriptions, useful floorplans and that all important professional standard of photography. With our top quality SLR digital cameras and the very latest VR technology, we will make your home stand out head & shoulders above the rest.
Local & National Marketing for Your Home
We advertise on the major property websites and offer sale by private treaty and auction to give you maximum flexibility and marketing coverage – reaching local, London and out of area buyers. We put your home where it will seen by the maximum number of potential buyers.
Our extensive database of registered buyers are spoken to directly about all new properties coming on to the market to generate interest and arrange viewings. It’s an pro-active, not a passive marketing approach all designed to get you the right buyer in a timescale that suits you.
Service Doesn't Stop When We Find a Buyer
Unlike many estate agents, we know that the hardest work often starts after the right buyer has been found. Communication, communication, communication are our watchwords.
We will thoroughly check the chain before you commit to a sale, help you find an experienced solicitor and can financially qualify your buyer to ensure that they can proceed as planned. We stay on top of the whole process and help sort out any issues and questions that arise before they become bigger problems.
We will be with you every step of the way, chasing solicitors, surveyors, all relevant paperwork and making sure you know what’s actually going on, right through to the day of completion.
No Upfront Commission charges – EVER!
We are a local bricks-and-mortar business. We don’t believe in charging our customers until the job is done. So, we don’t charge you any commission until the end of the sale.
We invest our own time and money in our customers and don’t expect you to pay up front. Local people. Locally owned. Local Reputation. The service doesn’t stop when we find a buyer either. We will be there right until the day of your move.
On-line and Open 24/7
With our personal ‘My Property File’ service we are open when other agents are asleep. It is a totally transparent window into the marketing of your home, showing upcoming viewings, viewing feedback, the latest marketing results, how many ‘hits’ your property is getting on Rightmove and much more.
What traditional Sussex agent does that?
Virtual Reality Marketing (VR)
You might well have seen VR advertised on the TV – or have it at home for gaming. But what’s certain, whether you know about it or not, VR is the next BIG THING when it comes to property marketing. Clarkes are right at the forefront of property technology and its impact on the rapidly changing house buying experience. We are one of the first agents able to offer this service – showcasing your property, standing out from the crowd, attracting buyers, and avoiding timewasting viewings. It is especially powerful for out-of-area buyers – who can view your property in amazing VR. Come in and see it for yourself!.
