At first we started the buying process by ourselves, but after 4 months of looking we decided to contact a buyer’s agency.
We were unsure about whether a buyer’s agent was worthwhile for us, but came to the conclusion that buying our first home was probably the biggest investment we will make in a long while, and it made sense to have experts to help guide us through the process. We had an initial meeting with Oliver and Jonathan and were immediately impressed with their market knowledge, professionalism and their ability to give us an independent view as to what we could realistically achieve on our budget.
The team at Bespoke Buyers and he provided us with tremendous support through the whole process. In our case, we actually found a property relatively quickly – but what we hadn’t immediately appreciated was the support that Oliver and Jonathan would also provide in managing the whole purchase process from the first offer through to completion. Through the negotiation, their market knowledge meant that we were making informed decisions about the true value of the property and resulted in us achieving a price well below the seller’s original expectations. The team really went above and beyond what we had expected. In summery although we had initial doubts as to whether a buyer’s agent would make sense for us, we found their support invaluable in helping us achieve our goal and finding our first property. The investment was definitely worthwhile (both financially and in time and effort) and we have no hesitation in using Bespoke Buyers again or recommending them to others.
