Two St Albans Offices – More exposure, Connells in St Albans sell more property than any other agent – fact, the proof is in our sold boards across the City. Our City Office has been selling property for over 67 years and benefits from the best location for any Estate Agency in St Albans, as well as being the top Branch in the Company over the last six years.  The Marshalswick branch has the benefit of free parking in a well-used shopping centre. Between the two offices we register an average of 100 new prospective purchasers weekly. We are open 7 days a week.

In excess of 450 Connells Group Branches – Across the country.  All Connells offices are networked through the Matchmaker computer system, directly linked to our websites. This enables each office to produce colour property details upon any instruction listed throughout the entire company.

Internet coverage – Without exception Connells’ offer the widest possible Internet coverage, receiving on average 20 x more enquiries than from newspaper advertising alone. The power of the net cannot be underestimated. It makes sense that the Estate Agent with the most powerful and widespread coverage will be able to generate more leads, giving us at Connells a major advantage over our competitors.

Sales Administration – Our dedicated sales co-ordinator Sarah Valentine is available to discuss your sale progression when required by liasing with your buyer, both solicitors, surveyors and any other agents in the chain.

Connells Mortgage Services – ‘A service built upon trust’. Our Mortgage consultant Paul King will benefit you in two ways. He will attempt to qualify prospective purchasers who view and offer on your property, minimising the chances of something going wrong, secondly, offering you advice from our computerised mortgage selection facility, looking at different schemes and using leading lenders throughout the UK. In the current economical climate approximately 50% of all mortgages fail. Advice has never been more important than now. We want to arrange your mortgage for and your buyers and if we can assure you that your chances of securing your next purchase are greatly improved, then the benefits speak for themselves.

Free Legal’s Incentive – Another unique service to Connells, elevating your property over and above others listed with different Estate Agents, this incentive could mean potential buyers only visit your property. Conditions apply.

Local Searches Pledge – Another reason to use our conveyancing is that a buyer’s local searches (necessary when getting a mortgage) is guaranteed on more than one purchase, which means that the buyer has increased reassurance to use our conveyancers too, help the sale even further to conclude with the minimum difficulty. This service is totally unique to Connells.

Having both bought and sold property through Connells I have to say the staff are very good at their jobs and really do care about their customers. Some of the other estate agents seem to just be chasing the money but these guys spend time with you finding out exactly what you want and don’t send you any old rubbish which doesn’t fit into your crietria.
